Reduce Stress in Planning with Savory

THANKS GIANT FOOD STORES AND BYISUMMIT FOR SPONSORING THIS POST & MAKING MY LIFE EASIER.

 

Tis’ The Season for Rushing Around

Overwhelmed with Holiday Planning? Feel like you are constantly on-the-go and no time to prepare for everything? You are not alone. It amazes me that every single year, once fall hits it’s a big blur to me. My typical practice of laying out the week in my planner and writing my list of errands, things to do, shopping list all fall by the wayside.

The days start to fly by and it feels like my normal tasks like meal planning are the biggest challenge. It’s go, go go, get Abby to school, get to work, pick her up from school, get home… and then “Oh No!” Sometimes I will think about it at like 3pm and then try to pull something together.

Savory Is A Savior

My savior has been Savory! The Savory Magazine from Giant has so many amazing recipes that are seasonal and completely mindful of cost. What’s even better, it now comes in apps for iOS, google, and amazon tablet devices.

Sometimes the hardest part on figuring out recipes for our family is just getting inspired. With Savory at my fingertips on my iPad or even my iPhone it’s easy to find something that’s fun for everyone, the best part is you can download back issues as well. It is the perfect springboard for meal planning.

While thinking about next week’s meal plan, I opened the app on my phone and checked out the latest issue. While I know that Abby most likely will not try it, I was excited to see a recipe for Pumpkin & Sage Ravioli with Apples and Pecans.

Savory featured the quick directions in 5 simple and easy steps, a beautiful image of the dish, and references to check out the full recipe on the site. Once there I saw that this recipe really is simple, it’s only 15 minutes from start to table, with 10 minutes prep and 5 minutes cook! Which not only gives me confidence that I can tackle this dish and excitement for bringing everyone to the table.

Try it for yourself, this app is a timesaver for busy families looking to get meals on the table and for home cooks who are looking for new and exciting recipes. Knowing that a solution is easily at my fingertips so there is no reason to get overwhelmed is what gets me through!

What is your stress triggers around the holidays? What is your method of coping?
