Keep it simple….”Real Simple”

I love cooking healthy, but I dread meal planning. Usually I spend hours surfing the Internet to find the perfect recipes, so when I saw that my favorite magazine “Real Simple” was offering a $10 year subscription of weeknight meals and grocery lists, you better believed I signed up!

Now every Friday morning I receive an e-mail of 5 healthy recipes, and a shopping list. I love it because all the recipes feed my family of four, are healthy, include detailed nutritional information (in case your counting calories, etc.), and are delicious! I have to say I feel like a gourmet chef platting up these gorgeous meals for my family. I have them all convinced that I’m a good cook.

TIP: To make things even simpler, find a grocery store that offers online shopping, When your order is ready you can just pull up and have your groceries loaded for you. It saves time, beats bringing your little ones inside, and saves you money as you manage your grocery list online and avoid impulse shopping (Mommy I want this!).
