A few key sentences that got my attention:
“This required fuel for daily living has the power to take my focus off priorities, cause me to overspend, and steal my time.”
“With a plan, food take its proper place in our households – and that’s a healthy necessity and an enjoyable part of the day spent with those important to us.”
The big one for me:
”Is it possible we have elevated food above the position Go distended? I believe he wants us to enjoy food – otherwise, we wouldn’t have pizza and brownies. But it was never meant to dominate our days and checkbooks with overindulgence and unnecessary time and money spent running to the store or through fast-food establishments.” (AMEN!)
Next week on our Getting Read – Conversations that Spark Change Conference Call, we are talking with Jane Delaney one of the co-founders of eMeals and she will share with us not only ideas for meal planning, but how to keep your kitchen the heart of your home without losing your mind! I can’t wait.
(If you missed my email blast last week, they have a great code – 30% off any meal plan using code: CYBER. They have dinner plans as well as add on’s for breakfast too – making meal planning even easier!)
If you haven’t tried it, I highly suggest doing so.
Oh, and just to get you started thinking about Thanksgiving, here is a yummy recipe for you to add to your collection from eMeals!

Do you have a meal plan system already working?
What is your biggest struggle with meal planning, time involved, coming up with ideas, or picky eaters?

If you have a system that works, please share with others, this is an area that is troublesome for many.
Do you only plan dinner, or are you also in a routine to plan breakfast and lunch?
Are you able to grocery shop and get all your items together in one trip to avoid wasted time later?
