Weekly Meal Plan #12

Every week, I’ll share with you a free meal plan that includes 5 dinner ideas (Monday-Thursday plus a weekend meal), 2 side dishes, and 1 dessert!

This includes a grocery list with every ingredient needed for all items in the meal plan.

This is to help simplify menu planning, shopping and cooking, making it easier for you to dine with your family throughout the week!

Tips of the week

Scrambled eggs are one of the most versatile dishes! Not a big fan of their plains? Add cheese, vegetables, different herbs, meats, etc. Don’t pair them with pancakes, waffles, bacon, or sausage. You can even add them to breakfast tacos or breakfast pizza!

A quick rule of thumb: When cooking scrambled eggs (especially for larger groups), we like to plan for about 2 eggs per person.

5 people = 10 eggs

10 people = 20 eggs

15 people = 30 eggs

Meal Plan Benefits

There’s nothing worse than fear when family members ask, “What’s for dinner?” And your answer is “I don’t know”. A week meal plan eliminates that completely, and it’s the number one benefit in my book!

In addition to developing a game plan, there are Several other benefits meal plan, include:

  • cost: When you have a plan and a specific grocery list in place, you can eliminate the cost of wasting on impulse items or products you never use.
  • reduce waste: No money wasted, no food wasted! Having a regular shopping list will help avoid both problems.
  • type: Our meal plans specifically include a variety of options, including Mexican, Italian, dinner breakfast, and more! You can let your family taste a variety of cuisines.
  • No indecision: Did you know there is “indecision fatigue”? The idea is that when you can’t decide something (like what to do for dinner), it actually wears you out mentally. But when dinner is already planned, you can avoid indecision altogether!
  • healthy: When you plan/anticipate making well-rounded meals, you’re more likely to actually make them than to default to a convenient box lunch or unhealthy fast food!

As you can see, meal planning has many benefits!
