As a family of 5, I tend to make sure that we all eat the same thing, most days. Some days my partner and I will have food later on, depending on how we feel but other days we will all eat together. As I'm currently a member of Slimming World, I have to prep meals from scratch, and although they're tasty and healthier, it can be quite a pain on what to have each day. I personally find that meals in the slow cooker help, a lot. Especially if you're busy and a parent.

As I get weighed on Wednesday evening, I tend to start planning our meals the next morning with a fresh mind. I look online and social media for meal ideas and some inspiration, I then plan the whole week on a word document on the Linx Tablet. It has really helped me each week to stick to my meal plans, and it has also helped with our food shopping bills.

When I plan our meals for the week, I write down a shopping list of the ingredients we need to make those meals. This has definitely decreased our weekly shopping bill, and we have been under our budget for a couple of weeks now - which we're pleased about. I've enjoyed writing everything down and being organised - which is a change for me.

The Linx Tablet is the perfect size for carrying around the house or out places. Which means whenever I want to type something down or search for something, such as meal ideas for families, I can quickly do it without having to go to another room to open up my laptop. It also has a 32gb memory, which is perfect for installing apps as it can install up 800 apps. I use a few apps that help me with my weight loss journey, and the kids also have a few apps on there too so they can play on it now and then.

What has helped you plan your family meals this year?

  1. Will definitely be taking some tips from this. I'm a terror for going shopping without setting out my meals for the week. You end up spending so much money. Tablet looks great :D
