Myth 2: Meal Planning takes too much time
On the contrary, Meal Planning saves time. It is a fact that initially, it does seem like that since you are sitting down to plan for meals for 2-3 days at a go, which is a total of 9 meals or more! However, once you get the hang of it and figure your way around a system it will not take you much time.
So your investment of time is only for the first few occasions and then it will roll smoothly. Also, having a Meal Plan for the next few days insight enables you to plan your shopping for the required groceries and vegetables in one go. You will save on your resources since you have an opportunity to buy only as per your specific requirements for the next few days.
So it is goodbye to buying more for the “just in case” scenario and running the risk of it going waste! Knowing what is going to get cooked also allows you to plan for the required prep like soaking, chopping, kneading, grinding, etc., in advance. This way you will end up saving on time and effort and be more efficient when it is time to cook.
AMIYAA’s Meal Planning module also makes it easy for you to plan the meals by offering interesting suggestions and triggers. Now, compare this with the angst and stress that you subject yourself to when you plan for each meal separately and individually. You make yourself go through the effort every day, as many times as the number of meals you are planning.
Sometimes, you may even have to rush to buy the required ingredients and then not have enough time to prep and cook properly. This is the reason most of the time, we end up cooking what is convenient and that may not be the best way to handle our /our family’s dietary requirements.
