So I’m going to let you in on a little secret… Before I started Soupstones, my done-for-you meal planning service, I thought there was absolutely no way I would enjoy following a meal plan.
You see, I like to think of myself as a ‘free spirit’, someone who hates being told what to do. I was worried about stifling my creativity.
But you know what?
Over the last year I’ve found myself following my meal plans more and more.
The thing I love about the weeks when I use Soupstones meal plans is that I don’t have to think. I just download the plan, buy what’s on the shopping list. And then walk into the kitchen each night and cook. It really is so easy (if I do say so myself!)
Anyway over the last few weeks I’ve been spending a lot of time on the phone and skype talking to the wonderful people from around the world who have been using the meal plans.
My main aim was to find improvements. But I’ve also been hearing how the meal plans are helping people.
There were the things you’d expect to hear like…
“I’m saving money because I’m only buying what we need”
“We’re eating so many more home cooked meals”
“I’m wasting so much less because I actually use the ingredients I buy”
“Everything is so quick and easy to prepare”
“I’m eating much more healthfully”
“We’re trying new and tasty recipes all the time. It’s helped me break out of my food rut!”
But there were a few surprises too!
