Q&A: Everything you need to know about meal planning

  • How often should I update my meal plan? Ideally every week to guarantee flexibility and variety. After a few runs, the finished plans can also be rotated.

  • Can meal planning really help you save? Absolutely, you can save money by making targeted purchases and reducing food waste. This may also mean that people buy less “on the spot” or order less food.

  • What to do if you have picky eaters? Involve them in the planning and discover new favorite dishes together. Integrate familiar dishes and slowly approach new dishes, modify familiar ones or offer something new as a side dish.

My personal tip for you

In my private life, as well as from my experience with my clients, I know how difficult it is to take the time and implement it in such a structured way over the long term. It helps me if I plan 1-2 dishes as meal prep for the week and eat them several times. So if the weekly planning says tofu bolognese for Monday, a large portion can be cooked and eaten again as a pasta bake for Tuesday and a portion can be frozen for another week.
