Meal Planning Categories
This is just an example of how I like to meal plan. You could also incorporate a “leftover meal” or even “clean out the refrigerator” night. This is something we do at least once a week or every 10 days.
Assign each day of the week a different category and then plan a meal according to that category.
- Monday - Meatless, Vegetarian or even Leftovers from the weekend.
- Tuesday - Taco Tuesday or Mexican Recipe
- Wednesday - Chicken, Beef or Fish
- Thursday - Pasta or Italian Night
- Friday - Sandwiches and Soup
- Saturday - Pizza or Eat Out, Order In
- Sunday - Comfort Food Meal
- Monday - Leftover Chicken Burgers
- Tuesday - Creamy Chicken Enchiladas
- Wednesday - Skillet Chicken Pot Pie - made with biscuits and not a traditional pie crust.
- Thursday - Chicken Shells Casserole
- Friday - Chicken Soup - my easy recipe that uses leftover chicken.
- Saturday -Buffalo Chicken Zucchini Pizza Bites
- Sunday - Chicken Broccoli Casserole
Now, pick a side dish to serve with the recipes listed above. Side dishes should include potatoes or rice along with one or two veggies. A tossed salad with homemade ranch salad dressing is always nice too.
