Have You Lost the Art of Meal Planning?

In just over a century, time spent preparing meals in the average American household has dropped from a whopping 44 hours per week to a minuscule 7 hours per week.  Based on that one simple statistic, I would guess that declining American health is directly correlated with decreased time spent preparing food.


Starting with a strategic meal plan is half the battle.

Luckily, in order to regain the benefits of time spent in the kitchen, without actually having to spend a lot more time there, there are a few modern miracles that significantly ease the burden. One of which is the online recipe database and meal planning software called Plan To Eat.

To quote their homepage:


Plan to Eat is a simple menu planner that allows you to save the personal menu that’s already in your head and scattered across recipe books and the web, in one place. Then you can easily select your favorite recipes from your menu (like at a restaurant), plan your meals for the night, week or month, print out the automatically created shopping list, and go shopping with confidence that you have a plan that includes eating great food at home, and not wasting time and money in the process.


Plan to Eat is driven by our food philosophy. We strongly believe our physical and emotional health is directly tied to what we eat, and the best way to insure we are getting the highest quality food is to prepare it at home. Without a way to plan and organize, we will often not have what we need in the pantry to make good food for our family.


I couldn’t have said it better myself!  In order to help you unlock the great and mysterious secrets of Plan To Eat, I’ve put together a video explaining some of the basic features and how to gain access to an 83 meal, 14 day NRG approved meal plan with accompanying recipes and shopping lists.  Enjoy…
