Meal Planning Categories
This is just an example of how I like to meal plan for 2 adults. 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 - Chili Beef and Noodles from Krumpli
- Tuesday - Copycat Chipotle Chicken Bowl from Are Invented Mom
- Wednesday - Honey Garlic Chicken from All Nutritious
- Thursday - Chicken Cutlet with Spaghetti
- Friday - Budget Friendly Tuna Salad
- Saturday - Homemade Beer Dough Pizza
- Sunday - Pesto and Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken from From a Chef's Kitchen
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.
