Planning meals and planning grocery lists…this is one tip of many that can be great for the environment and our waistlines. Making a menu for the week streamlines food preparation time as well as grocery shopping. Shopping off a list prevents food from going to waste because we’re less likely overbuy and let food spoil. It also keeps food from going to “waist” as we seldom write “cookies and chips” on our lists, but these tasty (but not so healthy) treats have a way of finding their way into the cart if we don’t follow a list. Good for the environment, good for your waistline, and good for the budget – can’t beat that!
