Anyone else struggle with getting dinner on the table, meal planning, or prepping? Or all of the above?
I know I’m not the only one…
It’s kind of crazy to me that since I’ve started Fit Mitten Kitchen, I’ve actually gotten worse about meal prep and planning our weeknight dinners. Oftentimes it’s 7pm, Drew has gotten home from work, me home from a workout and we’re both like “So what’s for dinner?” hoping the other already has something figured out.
You’d think I’d be able to come up with a simple meal plan, being that I am in the kitchen quite often. But for me, that’s part of the problem – I have blog recipes I make and not everything I make can be eaten for dinner. If I were better about including more weeknight meals on the blog, maybe that would help a little bit.
Not to mention after spending half of the week in the kitchen, I don’t really want to cook anything come dinnertime. I was actually much better about planning dinner when I worked in an office. I suppose I had “more time” to plan meals whereas now my meal planning gets put on the backburner.
Since I’ve started working for myself and running Fit Mitten Kitchen full-time, I realize just how awesome it is to have convenient prepared foods in your freezer for easy weeknight dinners. This business takes up a lot of my time and brainpower, and while I certainly need to get better about planning meals and setting aside more time for household tasks like meal prep, knowing I can throw together a satisfying dinner meal with the help of Dr. Praeger’s means I have one less thing to worry about.
I have been loving Dr. Praeger’s Pure Plant Protein products because they make planning satisfying meals a breeze. I don’t need to worry about adding a bunch of extra sides to ensure we’re getting a filling meal because each product is packed with 8 grams or more of plant protein.
So if you’re in need of easy weeknight dinner ideas and ways to get more plants into your diet, these Dr. Praeger’s products are perfect.
