Here's a simple meal plan that worked for them which you may adapt for your own meal plan, too: 

 


 

Monday

Breakfast:

Sabrina: Fried egg, bacon, Rice

Michelle: Bagel, egg, and cheese sandwich

Dinner
Sabrina: Spaghetti with meatballs
Michelle: Basic Malunggay Pesto Pasta for Meatless Mondays. 

 

What's their number one tip when meal planning? Prepare a big batch of dinner to transform for packed lunch the next day. This means they only have to think of two meals each day! Plus, you won't have to wake up extra early to cook and prep in the morning for packed lunches.

Make your grocery trips efficient. For Michelle, making meal plans help them source out their ingredients efficiently. This means she only needs to go to warehouse shops once a month, supermarket groceries once a week, and only a little more often for the farmer's market.

Thursday

Breakfast

Sabrina: Adobo flakes, rice, fried eggs

Michelle: Homemade tapa and veggie omelet

Dinner

Michelle: Grilled Salmon, new potatoes, sautéed peppers and onions

 

How does meal planning save money? One, it helps you stick to your budget. You get to compute total expenses before you're there in front of the cashier without a choice. You get to plan ahead about leftovers so this reduces food waste. It would make grocery shopping more efficient when you don't have to keep coming back.
