It’s Monday and if you haven’t already planned your meals for the week today is the day to do it. Did you know meal planning won’t just save you money it is healthier? Chicken Burritos is a favorite in our house. This week I’m trying cauliflower pizza crust for the first time.
Below you will find my dinner menu for the week. In just 12 days I will be offering you a Freezer Meal Plan with half the items to make in your crockpot and the rest to cook the night of. It will give you one month of meals all planned out. You will get the cost for all the ingredients at BJ’s and you won’t have to THINK about what to cook for dinner for a whole month. Note that the meal plan is going to be HALF price when it is launched for only 2 weeks so if you don’t want to miss out on the deep discount you can sign up for my emails here.
Pretty sweet right?
So if you need a bit of inspiration as to what to make this week check out my meal plan below chicken burritos is a favorite in this house.
For us breakfast is always eggs, smoothie, oatmeal, or pancakes.
Tips for Meal Planning:
BUILD CONFIDENCE AND RELATIONSHIPS
Meal planning will also build a family bond. Your kids will see you in the kitchen and they may want to help. I encourage you to let them help you even if you are just starting out cooking and feel uncomfortable, let them hand you your utensils.
If you grew up with not much of a cooking background start small. Don’t whip out the recipes that call for 10+ ingredients and knife skills.
You do not want to get discouraged, you want to feed your family for less.
My favorite recipes I started cooking with was from the classic Betty Crocker Cookbook. I suggest this to anyone wanting to start cooking and has no idea where to begin. It gives you the basics on everything from the cuts of meat, to basic spices, and how to shape your own loaves of bread.
Once you get a feel for how food blends together you will gain confidence and feel proud.
TOO BUSY IS NO EXCUSE!
If you are crunched on time you can still menu plan. There are hundreds of those freezer meal plans you can purchase or find your own on Pinterest that I know several of my friends love.
It is a personal preference if freezer cooking is for you. I really enjoy blending the ingredients together and if I am so crunched on time where I can’t prep a meal that’s when I turn to my emergency plan- frozen fish sticks or the crock pot.
If there is a meal that sounds so delicious you can not pass it up- use my price comparison search bar to find the best deal on it. That way you won’t feel bad about making a dinner that is calling you but you may not have any of the items in your pantry.
So this week here are the dinner meals we are having. Breakfast is always a choice of pancakes, eggs, oatmeal, cereal.
