What Exactly is Meal Planning?
Meal planning is something everyone talks about lately but what exactly is it? Meal planning is whichever way you organize yourself to cook a meal…usually dinner.
It’s the plan you make before you go grocery shopping or a list of what you want to prepare and serve meals for your family.
I’ve been planning out my family’s meals for years way before I started blogging and way before people actually talked about planning out a weekly dinner recipes for their family.
When my kids started getting busy with after school activities and other events, I started created a weekly list on a calendar of what I would make for dinner each night of the week.
The list helped me know what to cook for my family every night and how to be organized so I wasn’t scrambling at the last minute to get something on the table for dinner. It also helped me know what to purchase at the grocery store and not overspend.
Tips for Successful Meal Planning
- Get inspired! Spend time looking for easy recipes you know your family is going to love and want to eat.
- Ask your family what they want to eat for dinner. What are their favorite recipes that you already make for them?
- Once you have your weekly meals planned, put together a grocery list and go shopping!
Some people find it easier to plan out a weekly meal plan by following themes. Here are just a few ideas:
- Monday – Comfort Food
- Tuesday – Mexican Food
- Wednesday – Breakfast for dinner
- Thursday – Pasta Night
- Friday – Sandwich Night
- Saturday – Pizza Night
- Sunday – Family Favorites
