Meal Planning! Love it, hate it, run from it, eventually you will have to deal with it, especially when one of your little ones come up to you and ask: Mom, what’s for lunch? or your husband asks: hun, what’s for dinner?
I used to avoid meal planning, but after a couple of years of winging it with 2 (and now 3) children, I decided I had to start learning and trying. Fast forward a few years, and I now have a pretty easy time putting together a menu.
One thing that helped me was to develop a philosophy of eating: Simple, Healthy, Cheap. This guides me as I pick recipes and plan for each week. Also, we have occasional themed weeks, in which I stick to a budget, like $50 or $60. I have written about a couple of these menus and plan to write a couple more:
Feed A Family Of 5 For $50: Caribbean Week – guest post on MeetPenny.com
Feed A Family For Less Than $60 A Week: Asian Week
How To Feed A Family Of 5 For One Week With $25
My challenge this month is for you to send me a weekly meal plan / weekly menu. I will then select a few menus per week to post on my blog and I will make suggestions on how to:
- Make some changes to save money
- Make some changes to improve the healthiness of the menu
- Make some changes to simplify the menu
Send me your menus / plans through FB or contact me with the form below and I will write you back with my email address (please no spam). Follow my blog so that you can see each weeks menus and suggestions. I even plan on learning a thing or two!
Please enter your contact details and a short message below and I will try to answer your query as soon as possible.
