- Walking aimlessly between the fridge and pantry listing off possible dinner options to my husband while he politely declines to eat any of the contents of said fridge and pantry.
- Again, more wandering, only this time up and down grocery store aisles while the hunger monster continues to build and everything in sight looks tasty. Including the ready-to-eat (almost stale) fried potato wedges.
- Or, if my husband and I both had especially exhausting days at work, we bypass the first two scenarios and order takeout at our favourite Thai restaurant.
If this sounds something like your family, you might want to join me and give weekly meal planning a try!
To simplify the whole meal planning process, I have created a printable Weekly Meal Plan Worksheet. Each day, there’s a spot for every meal and two snacks as well as a space to write down what needs to be prepared for upcoming meals. My favourite part of this meal planning worksheet is the nutrition checklist on the side to help ensure you don’t forget any important foods or food groups when selecting meals and creating your grocery list.
