3 Alarms You Need to Set NOW!
" I always forget to take meat out of the freezer to thaw for dinner."
" I get so busy right before dinner time, it becomes stressful."
" I run out of time to properly meal plan."
Recently over on our Instagram, we asked you guys some questions about meal planning and what was the hardest part of meal planning for you. These were the top three comments we got.
So, we came up with a solution for you guys.
3 Alarms You Need to Set Right Now!
#1- "Take the Meat Out to Thaw" Reminder
Ok, so the first alarm you need to set is this one. You only need about two minutes in the morning to check your meal plan, go into your freezer, and take out whatever protein you need for the meal that night. Simple. That's it. I usually have time between 7-8 in the morning so I set my alarm for 7:30 so I am reminded to take care of that part of dinner before the day gets busy.
#2- "Time to Prep Dinner" Alarm
It is now afternoon time and you are getting home for the day and you get busy with household chores, homework, playing with the kids outside and BAM! It is now dinner time and everyone is HANGRY. You haven't even started to cook dinner. I like to set an alarm on my phone about 30 minutes before my family likes to eat, so it can remind me to start cooking dinner! This alarm makes dinner time significantly less stressful!
#3- "Time to Meal Plan" Alarm
This can be set as an alarm in your phone or as an event in your calendar. But seriously, have you ever gotten to the end of your meal plan and you are out of food and you need to go to the store but, you haven't meal planned yet? Going to the store without a meal plan and a list is a recipe for disaster so PLEASE make sure you make some time to meal plan BEFORE your meal plan is over!
I really do hope you try out these alarms! I promise they will change your meal planning and make dinner time so much more ENJOYABLE!
