These family meal prep ideas will make your week flow smoothly and reduce your daily stress.
Imagine just throwing breakfast in the oven and going about your morning. Or being able to just grab an on-the-go lunch when you need to go run errands!
And, my personal favorite, imagine being able to tell an older child to go get lunch ready by themselves. Oh, the freedom!
Meal prepping is the key to making your day run smoothly and feeding your family healthy, frugal food.

Remember, not every meal has to be a whole production.
My family loves to make breakfast sandwiches, and we will eat them all day long. I will also cook a whole box of pancake mix to microwave through the week.
And don’t underestimate the power of having your kids help you meal prep. Not only do you get to create wonderful memories, but you also get to share the work and teach your kids valuable skills like cooking, nutrition, and planning.
