The Meal Planning 101 series will be winding down in a few weeks. But, I wanted to make sure that we tackle all the possible scenarios and quandaries.  Scratch that! You all have submitted such great questions, we’ll be covering a few more topics in the next few months. Want to learn to meal plan better? Check out the archives or submit a question of your own.

Would you please take a minute and tell me what challenges you when it comes to meal planning?

I’ll be answering these in full detail in upcoming Meal Planning posts.

About Jessica Fisher

I believe great meals don't have to be complicated or expensive. There's a better way, and it won't take all afternoon.

    I just read your post on “I have a meal plan, now what?!” – those are kind of the issues I’m battling with. I’m great when it comes to planning, but not so hot on executing 🙁
    I need to just start, and then probably work out the wrinkles through trial and error. Thanks for the encouraging post!!

    My biggest challenge is cooking low calorie on a budget. Most low-cost meal plans suggest using less meat and filling in with lower cost starches — rice, potatoes, beans and bread. Most weight loss plans suggest using more fruits and veggies and lean starches. In other words, less of the cheaper starches and more of the expensive fruits and vegetables.
