By planning the night before I have saved a lot of beating myself up.
When you do plan ahead it helps if you have made some food groupings that you can just plunk in. Aiming for the lower limit on your suggested range means that you can have a small bit of wiggle room the next day.
Each night when I clean up after dinner, I make sure that I have things underway for the next night's dinner. I make sure that I know what I am planning to make and I double check that I have all ingredients. If something needs to be taken out and defrosted, I get that done.
Sometimes it can be hard to plan a week's meals in advance. Even if you do it, your plans might need to be adjusted. By double-checking your plan the night before. You will be ready to go for the next evening. This helps me deliver good meals to my family each night.
