Meal Plans for Our Family of 5


I love posting photos of our dinner each night on the Facebook Fan Page! It really helped me stick with the meal plan this week because I kept thinking someone would check our meal plans against the photo of our dinner.  Just trying to stay honest here, and that is full accountability to me!

Meal Planning Tip of the Day

Take your calendar out as you plan your meals. With spring sports in full force, planning simple, or portable meals for those nights will be crucial to keeping you from buying fast food on the way to a game or event!

Breakfast Lunch Snack Dinner
Monday Omelet with corn, red peppers, and onions Cold pasta and veggie salad with strawberries Baked Apples or homemade applesauce Risotto Primavera and Grilled Chicken
Tuesday Smoothies and whole wheat English Muffins Pita sandwiches with turkey and sprouts Avocado Frog Dip Corn Quesadillas
Wednesday One Eyed Monsters Peanut butter and Jelly on whole wheat with sliced bananas and strawberries Trail Mix Chicken and Peas with Egg Noodles
Thursday Oatmeal with peaches and pecans Sub sandwiches on hoagie rolls with baby carrot sticks Popcorn Homemade Pizza with veggies and goat cheese

Hi Amy, I love seeing your weekly menu plan. The tip about having something ready so you don’t hit fast food is so true for our family too. All kind of good ideas here. Wish I was on facebook so I could see your pictures. Since I have my blog and that takes up my time my thinking was to not join on the f/b or twitter thing. Have a great day.
