COVID-19 Meal Planning

Meal Planning During a Pandemic

We have had quite the year so far. Grocery shopping has become a different kind of adventure. People are shopping for more meals at once these days.

As a company that strives to make your home life more comfortable, we thought it would be helpful to a create a complete meal plan, shopping list and recipes for two weeks worth of meals.

As an added bonus, you could sign up for the Misfits Market box. They deliver organic produce either weekly or bi-weekly. Visit Misfits Market, choose a plan and use code: COOKWME-HZ3WZF for 25% off your first order. No contracts. You can cancel at anytime.

I utilize Misfits Markets by creating my meal plan/grocery list as soon as I get my box. That way I can utilize what’s in my box and add to it during my next grocery run if necessary.
