What is Meal Planning?
It’s the art of planning our meals for the week, usually around a particular goal, and helps us all to break down the barriers to food freedom.
Meal Planning with MenuAid
Who should Meal Plan?
Meal planning isn’t one-size-fits-all. It can be used to plan each and every aspect of our diet, or just the odd meal each week to use up leftover ingredients.
Meal planning is made to work for you.
MenuAid has been a welcome addition to our family. We had used the food delivery options in the past but found them expensive, quite wasteful and the kids didn’t like the meals regularly enough. So far they love these meals and our grocery bill is down significantly as we shop in season. Great service at an affordable price.
We've used MenuAid for months now and it's great. It's nice to be given new recipes every week, but also it's great to be able to search for recipes (if I have a vegetable that needs eating etc). It means we're not stuck in a food rut and there's always inspiration.
MenuAid has taken away the pain of weekly menu and meal planning from my busy schedule. With their recipes, planner and shopping list, I’m no longer making multiple trips to the supermarket and not buying easy, convenient meals. Meals are healthy, tasty and easy to make, and the family is loving them!
