This is a sponsored post with Prep Dish. However, all opinions are my own and I only share content that I feel is helpful for my readers. We have been using Prep Dish for three weeks now. I’m going to be sharing how Prep Dish saved my sanity around menu planning.
Every since our youngest was born it has been a bit harder for me to keep everything going. It is a lot of work to be a mom to a three and a half year old along with a 13 month old. Not to mention being a wife that tends to her husband, a housekeeper to her house and a business owner to her business! It is hard to keep it all together, but we manage. However, lately I had been really dreading the task of menu planning and grocery shopping.
I know I am not the only one that feels this way. There have been many conversation with friends about how daunting it can be. First, it starts with what recipes to have. Should I spend time on Pinterest trying to find new ones or stick to ones we are sick of? Then, seeing which ingredients I already have and making a list of what I need. And finally getting the kids out to grocery shop. Honestly, it’s all been quite overwhelming to me.
We eat at home six days a week. The next day we eat our leftover dinner for lunch. This is how we ensure we are eating healthy and stay on budget. I have looked into some meal prep services before, but something always didn’t work for us. It was either over our budget, didn’t make enough food or just wasn’t clean food. When I saw Prep Dish it was very intriguing to me!
How Prep Dish Saved My Sanity Around Menu Planning
Prep Dish is a monthly subscription of recipes, grocery list and prep day instructions for a low cost of $14 a month. Each week the recipe list includes four dinners, a breakfast, a salad and a dessert. This leaves room for the staple meals you prefer to have each week, leftovers or eating out. For us we can often make the breakfast and the salad each an additional meal.
All the ingredients are listed in categories which would make it easy to shop for. They each also are numbered correlated back to the meal in case you are not fixing a meal that week you can easily remove items. For me this has made my online grocery store pick up order super easy and fast! I literally spend zero time making a grocery list.
Prep Dish is set up where it gives instructions on how to have a prep day of two hours. This is a time that most of the chopping is complete. Some of the cooking is done as well. If you like food prepping this is for you! On weeks that I can’t manage to food prep I simply read the prep day instructions when I start preparing dinner for that day.
There is also a cook day section. This section is basically the recipe instructions. It tells you what else you need to do after the prep day stuff to make the rest of your meal.
We have enjoyed trying new meals and flavors that we would not have otherwise tried. This week one of those dishes was a potato and broccoli soup. I am not very creative when it comes to flavors so I love that we get to try different flavors all in healthy ways. Another great thing about Prep Dish is that each week the menu gets delivered to you via email where there is also information like substitutions that can be used.
How Prep Dish saved my sanity around menu planning is I no longer dread thinking of recipes, wasting time looking for something good or forget things on my grocery list. If you have been looking for something to support yourself and you just haven’t found anything that works yet, I encourage you to take a look at Prep Dish.
