Meal planning will save you a lot of money and make it easier for you to stick to your budget. When you prepare weekly meals, you’re unlikely to dine out and waste your money. Moreover, cooking at home ensures safe, healthy meals that have no additives, sugar, or sodium. Plus, you will only spend 2-3 hours preparing a whole week’s lunches, so you save a lot of time as well. Today’s weekly meal plan will give a variety of ideas that you can apply for several weeks, so let’s get started!
Sandwiches, wraps, tortillas, and tacos will be excellent to start with. Think Shawerma, Hotdog, Crepe, pane, or any kind of wraps you like. If this week’s sandwiches are going to be chicken, try to use beef for next week.
You can never go wrong with pasta. Call it Pasta Monday and prepare any pasta dish of your choice. You can choose from these options if you like: baked feta pasta, spaghetti and meatballs, Fettucine alfredo with chicken or mushrooms, lasagna, or bechamel pasta.
Egyptian oriental food is the best. Try to make oriental dishes on Tuesdays, such as Mulukhiyah, Mesakaa, and Kushari. If you’re going to make the latter, try to make it all in one pot to save time and effort.
Soups are delicious, nutritious, and easy to make. Vegetable, Tomato, and Lentil soups have an amazing taste and would make excellent lunches. Toasted bread will be a great side dish that goes perfectly with soups and salads.
Make seafood on Thursdays since it’s nutritious, tasty, and extremely healthy. Fried fish, grilled shrimp, canned tuna and sardines, baked salmon, oven-baked or grilled fish are among the best seafood lunches you can ever eat. Potatoes and rice go a long way with seafood.
Take a break on Fridays and Saturdays and dine out, order fast food, or eat leftovers.
Prepare these meals on the weekends. You can either cook them fully or just prepare all the ingredients and freeze them so they’re ready to be cooked right away.
