Now for my #1 Tip for Meal Planning:
Today I sort through my recipes and pick one for each protein source. I plan a grocery list, then tomorrow morning I'll shop. First at Aldis, where I can buy items less expensive than the regular grocery store. I'm not sure what produce I'll find there, so I'll buy what looks good, then plan the rest of the menu after shopping. The first grocery stop takes 1/2 an hour, then I'll stop at Giant Eagle to buy the rest of my list.
