I have a fun printable calendar that you can print and plan out your Healthy Meal Plan for the entire month. This is an easy but healthy meal plan that I know you are going to love.
One Month Healthy Meal Plan:
Eating healthy can be overwhelming at times. You don’t know what to cook for you and your family and want to simplify the process. That is why I like have a monthly meal plans that I can quickly go to and know exactly what I am cooking.
This is a healthy menu plan that will help your family save money, cook more, and eat out less.
How do I start a monthly meal plan?
First, I like to look at the month and see what we have going on. Rather it be sports, activities or vacation planned having those activities marked on the calendar you will know what meal works best on those nights. Then, I start putting meals on the calendar that I know my family like and what ingredients we already have on hand.
This has been a game changer for me when it comes to planning my meals – shopping your own pantry! I also like shopping the weekly sale flyers. This helps me plan meals based on what is on sale and what vegetables and fruits are in season.
How do I make a monthly meal plan?
Now that you have established what activities you have going on for the month, I start making my meal plan. I print a calendar out and then I start writing down the meals on each day of the week.
I like to plan a dinner each week that is meatless! We call it in our house meatless Mondays! We also plan a night that we eat leftovers. I usually plan this on a night that everyone has something going on. Both of these options save time and money!
What are good healthy meal plans?
When you are making your healthy meal plans, you want to plan for your seasonal fruits and vegetables. This helps you save money as you are not wasting food when it doesn’t taste good.
Include in your meal plan – lean meats, poultry, fish, eggs and nuts. These items keep you full longer and are easy to prepare.
Meals plans save you time and money:
I believe the best way to save money is to have a plan. Here on Eating on a Dime my sole goal is to help you save some money and get your family back in the kitchen together. I want to prove to you that you can enjoy cooking and that it doesn’t have to be complicated. Here is an entire menu so you can have a healthy meal plan this month and start the year off right.
