Best Weekly Meal Plan
Anyone who has ever stepped foot in a grocery store knows that it can be an overwhelming experience. With so many options and temptations, it's all too easy to end up spending more money than you intended.
This is why menu planning is such a great idea. By taking the time to plan out your meals in advance, you can save both money and time. When you know what you're going to make ahead of time, you can make a grocery list that focuses on the specific ingredients you need.
This can help you avoid impulse purchases and sticking to your budget. In addition, menu planning can help you avoid wasting food. If you have a plan for each meal, you're less likely to let perishables go to waste. With a little effort, menu planning can help you eat better and save money at the same time.
Meal Planner Notebook
What exactly is a meal planner notebook? A meal planner notebook is a notebook that helps you plan your meals. It can include recipes, grocery lists, and ideas for different meals.
It can help you to stay organized and make sure that you have everything you need for each meal. Check out the editable one available HERE.
Weekly Meal Plan
If your family is like mine, they don't like having the same recipe over and over again. I think you're going to enjoy trying these new recipes this week.
Get the kids involved with the planning also! Have them pick a meal one night a week. And make sure they know they need to pick a healthy meal that includes vegetables. Make it fun for them!
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.
Try to use what you have in your pantry and freezer to plan meals. It helps to keep a list so you know exactly what you have on hand.
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
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.
