I tend to have a love/hate relationship with meal planning. Naturally, I love to be intentional about a good plan, but sitting down and putting one together, following through, and then making the dinners every evening can create some overwhelm in my life. Generally, as the dinner hour approaches, my kids always seem to go intofull on crazy mode. Some days it can seem like the greatest struggle ever to get a healthy dinner on the table while managing the little ones.
When I talk to friends who work outside the home, I hear the same struggle with them concerning meal planning. As they race home from work, pick up the kids, the last thing on their minds is trying to fix dinner.
