Who has been here: It’s 11am, your stomach has started growling. Lunch is an hour away, and you have no idea what’s in the fridge. Or even worse, it’s 4:30. The kids are home from school, and you have nothing planned for dinner.
I’ve been there, and it’s not fun.
By creating a weekly meal plan, you can save time, energy, stress, and unnecessary trips to the grocery store! Not having to panic and wonder “What am I going to make for dinner tonight?” is definitely something that we all can relate to and appreciate.
I’m going to share with you one of those Little Wins™ that can help you make healthier decisions throughout the day.
I bought my ZonePerfect® Chocolate Mint, 5ct and ZonePerfect® Dark Chocolate Almond, 5ct bars at Walmart:

How to save time and energy by planning your meals
1- Evaluate your needs
Do you have young children at home, requiring you to plan three meals a day? Or do you have older children who may only “grace” you with their presence at dinner time? I made two printables for you, so choose what’s right for your family.
2 – Write it down
Write down the meal idea, as well as the recipe source in one spot.
3 – Inventory as you go
I also like to check my pantry as I make my meal plan. Even if it’s a staple like flour, do a quick double check and avoid last-minute grocery store trips.
So embrace all of those Little Wins, whether it’s having your meal plan completed on Sunday night or making healthier choices throughout the day.
