I started out by finding a printable meal plan sheet. Since I'm pretty picky about the format for planning out my meals but didn't want to design one myself, (who has time for that?!) I turned to pinterest to save the day. Here are several that I liked ~
We pretty much eat the same things for breakfast and lunch so I only plan out dinners and anything that I want to make like muffins/granola bars/cookies/ect. I plan 2 weeks at a time, work a leftover night on the sheet once a week, and pick up any pantry staples that we're running low on when I grocery shop. By doing these things, I'm usually only grocery shopping once every 2 weeks. I also like us to eat by the 80/20 rule. Meaning most of the things we eat are whole foods/clean/healthy.
So, here's my plan for this week ~
Breakfast - cereal, oatmeal, eggs, pancakes, fruit
Lunch - sandwiches, chips, fruit, veggie sticks, leftovers
Monday ~ Homemade pizza and salad
Tuesday ~ Crockpot Honey Sesame Chicken, Rice, Steamed Broccoli
Wednesday ~ Summer Veggies with Sausage and potatoes
Thursday ~ Pizza at weekly bible study
Friday ~ Chicken Tacos (using leftover chicken from Tuesday)
Saturday ~ Leftovers!
