The most important thing to do when it comes to meal planning is to visualize the week ahead. Using a calendar, your planner, a piece of paper, your phone or even our guide! Use whatever is most comfortable for you to help you see what’s coming up in the week ahead.

After you’ve planned out your week now it’s time to scour your kitchen to see what ingredients you have and what ingredients you have to buy. Use what you have to help you build your recipes for the week.


Once you’ve gotten your list of ingredients together it’s time to look through your brain, your cookbooks, and the IG feeds you follow like #nmceats to see what foods you want to prepare. Add the meals you want to prepare to your calendar or meal planner guide and that’s pretty much it! You’ve planned your meals. All that’s left to do is make your list, shop for your ingredients and cook!
