How to Meal Plan for a Week

Do you struggle with meal planning? Do you find yourself scrambling for ideas at the last minute and resorting to fast food or takeout? Well, fear not! With a little bit of planning and the right tools from Two Pillars, meal planning can be a breeze.

Here are some tips to help you meal plan for a week:

1: Take inventory

Before you start planning, take a look at what you already have in your fridge, freezer, and pantry. This will help you use up any ingredients that are close to their expiration date and save money by not buying unnecessary items.

2: Choose your meals

Decide what meals you want to make for the week. Consider your schedule, dietary restrictions, and food preferences. Write down your meal ideas and make a grocery list of the ingredients you need.

3: Prep ahead

To save time during the week, do some meal prep ahead of time. Use the Duo Cover®  to reheat leftovers or cook meals in the microwave, and the ZipBag® to store prepped ingredients or meals. These products are reusable and eco-friendly, so you can feel good about reducing waste.

4: Use a universal lid

When cooking, use the UniLid® to cover your pots and pans. This will help retain heat and moisture, making your food cook faster and more evenly. Plus, it's an eco-friendly alternative to plastic wrap.

5: Clean up

Use the Swedish Dishcloth to clean up any spills or messes. It's a great alternative to paper towels and can be used over and over again. Plus, it's compostable, so you can feel good about reducing waste.

By following these tips and using the right tools from Two Pillars, meal planning can be a fun and stress-free process. Plus, you'll be reducing waste and helping the environment in the process.

Happy meal planning!
