Allison welcomes guest Sarah Hart-Unger to talk about essential planning strategies for your day-to-day routines.

In episode 209, Prep Dish founder Allison Schaaf discusses planning strategies with guest Sarah Hart-Unger from Best Laid Plans and Best of Both Worlds podcasts. They cover big-picture planning all the way down to smaller daily details, and even include a peek into Sarah’s personal meal planning approach at home.

Sarah is a mother of three living in Florida, and is a physician, podcaster, and blogger with a passion for all things planning.  She approaches planning as something essential to having her days run smoothly, not only to make the day-to-day less stressful, but also keep goals and dreams moving forward.

Sarah’s approach to planning involves a nested-level strategy, touching on yearly, seasonal, monthly, weekly, and daily goals.  This strategy ensures big goals don’t get left behind, while small details aren’t abandoned only to pile up later in the future.  She explains that at each level, you’re referring back to the level above and using that to shape what you’ll accomplish.  An annual planning strategy Sarah loves to utilize is breaking up her year into quintiles, or fifths of the calendar year.

Both paper and digital aids are in Sarah’s planning arsenal.  One of her favorite current planners is the Hobonichi Cousin A5 from Japan.  She often tries out different planners and reviews them on her Best Laid Plans podcast.

Prep Dish services have been a steady part of Sarah’s meal planning for many years and she loves the Super Fast menu in particular.  She splits the meal prep work with her nanny, which is a streamlined process that has worked well in this season of Sarah’s life.  The flexibility of Prep Dish meals and high protein options work very efficiently for her family’s current meal planning needs.
