Do you menu plan? What system works for you? Mr. Heather doesn’t have your run of the mill 9 – 5 job. If I didn’t create a plan I would have a hard time motivating myself to cook nutritionally sound meals for my kids as they would be perfectly content with a PB&J sitting at the breakfast bar. I believe the family meal is important whether or not all members can be present. Many nights it is a struggle to force myself to follow through, but our health and budget appreciate the effort. Having a plan helps keep me in line with their needs and prevents the drive through from becoming the more attractive option for both my husband and I. If he’s not here I fix him a plate for his next meal at home.
I would like to hear from those of you in similar situations, please share your strategies.
