One of my favorite tools to utilize in order to save money and ensure I eat healthier is creating a weekly meal plan. I have a fairly busy lifestyle so there are a lot of nights that I rely on ready made meals but by planning them out and learning the best of the prepared meals I have learned great meals that are healthy, well balanced and don’t take up too much of my evening to prepare.
