As discussed in last month’s post, Creating a Monthly Meal Plan, the benefits of meal planning include saving time and money and helping you choose consistently nutritious meals. This month I wanted to give you an example to help plan out the upcoming month.

The following tips will help you take my example and create something that works for you!

  • Increase or decrease portion sizes based on your exercise level and calorie needs. Along the same lines, double or triple the recipes if you are cooking for a larger family.
  • If you have plans that may include a meal, make sure to block them off of the calendar and don’t prepare meals for those days. Most all of these recipes can be frozen so you can even save those meals for next month.

Hopefully you can see how I organized the month so that I only had to cook a few times and repurposed many of the ingredients into multiple meals. This plan has a bit of variety; you could simplify it further by being more consistent with breakfasts and lunches or making larger batches of the dinner options and repeating the leftovers more frequently.

Once you try this out, come back and leave a comment. I would love to see how it works for you. What successes or challenges did you have? What tips do you want to share? I look forward to hearing how great you do!
