Fast forward a few years later when I was living the dream of part-time stay-at-home mom (ha! – as if there’s such a thing as a part-time mom!) and part-time teacher, feeling the need to be a little more organized about my meal preparation and planning. I spent a long time researching and trying various meal planning programs before I found one that actually worked well for me. When I discovered Plan to Eat, I was thrilled to find a tool that incorporated my need for a shopping list easily generated from my meal plan…
I have been using Plan to Eat for about three years now. I’ll be honest, I tend to use this tool more when I am running a pilot meal program for friends and HAVE to be organized; I find myself slacking a bit when the pressure is off. Though this lack of consistency is less than ideal, it has allowed me to notice a couple of significant changes when I am regularly using Plan to Eat:
1. I am better about saying on budget with groceries because I have everything planned out and am not spending $ based on whims/impulse buys at the grocery store.
2. I am prone to a healthier diet when I take the time to meal plan and think ahead (even if I don’t stick with the plan 100%)
This has been an invaluable tool in both my personal and professional life. If you’re thinking of trying to get a little more strategic in your diet and meal planning efforts, I think you will find this Plan to Eat well worth your time and money. Let me know if you do purchase a membership and I will happily share my recipe library with you (it’s sooo easy to do with another member)!
