Meals on a budget: The new thing.

10th Jun, 2017

Aren’t you tired of eating out and wondering where all your salo is going? I am. Until I discovered meal planning. Planning your meals has several benefits that come with it.

It promotes healthy habits. For those of you who think eating healthy is way too costly, think again. It is essential that you consume a meal that is jam packed with all the nutrients necessary in fueling your body. Meal planning helps you decide beforehand what you want to eat and thus ensuring that when you go grocery shopping, you select healthier foods that will cater for your dietary needs. Additionally, planning your meals is essential for those of you who want to switch to a healthier lifestyle (This is the point where you put down those plate of fries).

It saves time. Planning ahead allows you to save time when it comes to cooking on a daily basis. Cook things in bulk and freeze them for future consumption. This is especially a plus when you have a work deadline or running late in the morning. Just pop it in the microwave and voila!!!

It saves money. There are several times that money has been tight due to other obligations such as rent, water, electricity, etc. Hence why when you get the chance to cut on costs, you grab it by the horns.

Meal prepping saves money because you can buy items in bulk and make good use of your freezer. If you have prepared your meal for the entire week, take-out will no longer be necessary. In fact, carrying your meals with you to the office reduces the chances of you buying unnecessary fast foods that are hazardous to your health anyway.

Overall, meal prepping gives you a chance to start paying more attention to your savings. With KCB MPESA, you can open a fixed savings account that allows you to lock a specific amount of cash for a period of up to 12 months. You’ll be surprised how much you can save in such a short period of time! Before you know it, you will be smiling your way to coasto on the revamped train for a well-deserved treat. You’re welcome!
