Lately I have been trying to be more intentional about meal planning. This is definitely an area our family hasn’t been the best at. However, when I do sit down for 15-20 minutes each week to plan meals and create a grocery list, I end up saving a lot of time and money. Otherwise it looks like one of three scenarios:
Okay, so there are times for Thai takeout. But on most nights, takeout food is not the most affordable and sustainable option. Plus, unless you wrap up some of the food for later, it’s much too easy to overeat with the larger portions served by restaurants.
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.
