Meal planning: love it or hate it, when you have a family that needs to eat, it’s one of those tasks presents itself week in and week out to get done. Like dishes or laundry, the perpetual motion machine of coming up with meals is not going away. From my Facebook feed, it seems to be a chore that weighs on a lot of people’s minds, especially when 5:00 pm rolls around, plans have fallen through, and the fridge is looking mighty empty of ideas. Sound familiar? If so, you’re in the right place.
In conjunction with the recipes and nutrition articles that are the standard fare here on A Love Letter to Food, I’m excited to announce that I am rolling out a new service on the blog: custom meal planning! As someone who is near completion of a degree in nutrition and licensure as a Dietetic Technician, Registered, I have significant experience in planning meals that are healthy, delicious, and simple to make. While you could of course plan meals from the variety of options in my recipe index, I am happy to say that as a part of the process of starting this new venture, I am offering a giveaway of a free week of custom meal planning services. Here’s the deal:
