Let’s Get Organized for the New Year
It’s New Year’s Day. Do you have a New Year’s resolution?
Do you want to:
Eat more meals at home?
Hit the drive thru less?
Have more family time?
Feed more veggies to your kids?
Have more variety in you weeknight dinners?
Reduce your grocery budget?
Meal planning can help with all of this and it is not as hard as you think. So many people tell me that they have a hard time planning family meals around all their kids activities. They tell me they don’t have time to plan or fix dinner. They tell me they are tired of fixing the same meals over and over.
Rather than getting overwhelmed, let’s take one step today that will help you with your meal planning. Something small and simple that will make a difference all year long. Download a copy of my Master Meal Planning Sheet.
This Master Meal Planning Sheet will help you see the meals you already make for your family. It is broken down by proteins. If your family is primarily vegetarian or vegan, use the list with blank categories.
Take a few minutes and do a “brain dump” of all the meals you make under each protein. When you go to meal plan, you can reference the Master Meal Planning Sheet to add variety to your weekly meal plan. This helps when you don’t know what to make and don’t want to have chicken 6 days this week.**Note- Don’t add a new recipe to the sheet until you have served it to your family at least twice.
