HOW TO Simplify Meal Planning with Claire Tansey

Update: 2021-03-08


Dinner can be the most joyful part of our day but often the preparation and pressure of getting something on the table brings stress instead of enjoyment with our family. If you strive to meal plan, make homemade meals and enjoy dinner time tune in! In 2021 we are focusing on being essential, minimizing the extra energy expenditures that cause us friction and burnout. In this episode we have a wide ranging conversation about many tips that can bring you more joy in meal planning from ways to budget and buy in season to picky eaters and how we can include them in meal planning and prep. We touch on back pocket dinners (meals made from ingredients you already have on hand) like black beans, cheddar cheese and tortillas from the freezer! Or a simple parmesan pasta or tuna melts, this is your fail safe back up plan! As much as we want to meal plan our best intentions can be thwarted by time, expired ingredients or lack of energy. Back pocket dinners are your go to in these moments. We also discuss narrowing down our dinner favorites and add them to our reoccurring dinner list!  Meal planning is a task that brings many of us stress, Claire helps us see that it doesn't need to. We can choose to find joy in meal planning! How we start is how we mean to go on. Let's find our groove together.
