So before I go shopping each week or two, I need to know what we're going to be eating. Then, hopefully, I can spice up the menu a little. It'll also be nice to know what we're having each day, so I don't have to stand there, trying to figure out what to throw together before the children have a meltdown.
This will also be good for my goal to lose weight. I can plan meals based on my caloric needs. Plus, if I schedule my fruits and veggies for specific meals, maybe I will be more likely to eat them.
I guess I will:
- Come up with a format for scheduling meals (list, chart, whatever)
- Put all my recipes in one place
- Get meal suggestions from my husband and children
- Write out my meal plans
- Save meal plans from previous weeks, so I can use them again in future weeks
How do you plan your meals? Do you like to know what you're having ahead of time, or do you like to just throw something together?
