Why meal plan?

Meal planning makes it easier to eat healthily while cutting down on unnecessary cost. Here’s why:

  • Meal planning gives you an overview of what you will be eating throughout the week. This way, you can plan your meals mindfully, to ensure you have the necessary nutrients to keep your body healthy.
  • By having a weekly meal plan, you have a better view of the ingredients you might need. This can help you cut down on cost and reduce food waste, as you will only have to buy ingredients that you will use, rather than random ingredients that may not go well together as a meal.
