As we move into another school year, it's time this household gets their act together. That includes planning our evening dinners. I have found that planning our meals 2 weeks out helps us to stay more organized at home with food prepping...it also saves me the trouble of standing in front of the fridge staring at too many or too little choices.
I found these printables a few years ago and created this binder to help us stay on track.
On a side note-I find the best time to plan your meals is while watching Extreme Weight Loss. Hearing Chris Powell tell a contestant that he allows 1 day a week of rewarding himself with a handful of tortilla chips will make you rethink Taco Tuesday as a healthy meal therefore motivating you to plan healthier meals.
Anyways, back to printable meal planners...here's a few that I thought you would like:
several different planning choices as well as daily cookbook page tags (for those of us who plan a meal and then can't remember which cookbook it was in)
several different planning choices including some without day of the week labels in case you prefer to not plan Sunday-Sunday
a meal planning printable with breakfast and lunch spots along with a monthly calendar with spots for each family member's name
I bet you're as excited as me to start planning your family's meals. Hmmm, maybe I should start a link up of weekly meal plans to help when we get in a cooking rut?!?
