Meal Plan Your Week.
May Designs has a meal planner journal that makes it really easy to plan out meals on one side of the page and write out a grocery list on the other. This helps keep me accountable so I don't end up running to the store unnecessarily throughout the week. I'm also less likely to "cheat" and go out for a meal, when I know exactly what I've planned to prep and eat.
When it comes to recipes I make during the week, I heavily rely on one-pot, my blender, and a slow cooker. Those help me cut down on time, effort, energy, and dishes.
A word to the wise about leftovers: I meal plan so I only eat the same thing twice. If a recipe serves 4 (and I'm dining solo), I'll simply cut the recipe in half from the get-go.
Now you're ready to see what I cooked up in one week!
