What are your tricks to get ready for back to school? This is our first year of school- hello kindergarten!- and I’ve been trying to think of ways to make getting into our new routine as smooth as possible. At the top of the list: meal planning. My goal is to plan for the week ahead on a Sunday and prep meals/ snacks the night before, to take some of the pressure off in the morning.
Over the Summer I tried to make a habit of meal planning on Sundays and testing out recipes (thanks Pinterest!). I have been inconsistent with this in the past, but what I like about meal planning is that it helps get the week ahead organized. Added bonuses: everyone can make requests, we can mix in favourites with new recipes to try, and it reduces our grocery bill and food waste. While I’m feeling more settled with meal planning, I’ve called in back up just in case there are some bumps in the road as we settle into the new school routine: a few meals a week from Fresh Prep (see some of the ones we’re trying below).
We have enjoyed Fresh Prep before and love their variety, quality ingredients, and how quick and simple the meals are. With just a few clicks you can organize some (or all!) of your meals for the week and have them delivered right to your door. If you want to get meal time organized for back to school and everything that comes with this time of year- after-school activities, practices, appointments, etc- Fresh Prep may be your friend this Fall.
Thanks to Fresh Prep, I’ve got some of the meals for the month already figured out and I’m giving away a $75 shopping credit to help make September and back to school a little smoother for another family!
The meals take 15- 30 minutes to cook, and ingredients come prepped for use, along with easy-to-follow instructions. For busy evenings when you need a little help with dinner, Fresh Prep is a great option. See below to enter!
