Let’s be honest — picking out recipes is the most fun part of meal planning. Part of making my meal planning ritual enjoyable and repeatable is making time at the end of each week to flip through magazines, browse Kitchn’s recipe page, and select meals for the following week. It doesn’t hurt that I like to do this with a cocktail or a soothing cup of tea in hand, either.
On the flip side, the biggest mistake I see new meal planners make is in the recipe selection. Either they are being too narrow in their recipe selection or skipping a key step (or two) before they even select recipes. There are a few better ways to select the right recipes for your meal plan — here are five of the most common.
