Food on the Table: Stress Free Meal Planning

It’s no secret that most caregivers are faced with a serious juggling act when it comes to balancing family, work and personal time. The challenge of planning and preparing nutritious, well-balanced and flavorful meals that please a variety of palates is a common dilemma. Couldn’t we all use a little assistance in this department? I know I can.

Fortunately, there are a wide variety of free apps that can save the day. Available through both the Apple App Store and the Android Market, these handy programs provide simple solutions to this challenge. After looking at quite a few, Meal Planning by Food on the Table is one that I can certainly recommend. This user-friendly app allows you to build a meal plan and shopping list based on healthy recipes that you choose. It can even integrate items on sale at your local grocery store. By selecting recipe categories based on your family’s needs, you can customize menus specific to your gluten-free, meat-free or other dietary restrictions or preferences.

By alerting you to sale items at the local grocery store of your choice, Food on the Table can construct a meal plan for your family that is both healthy and affordable. Really, what’s not to like here?
