With two weeks left of sports, meal planning for the week is still very focused on keeping it simple in this house.

Something that gets twisted so easily is that “meal planning is complicated”. Meal planning doesn’t have to be complicated. Feeding your family dinner should not be a task that takes a lot of time or mental effort. It’s time to re-evaluate how you plan your week if it is taking up both.

Keeping Meal Planning Simple

Our weekend was spent at soccer games; therefore, I used my meal planning method to make a plan for the week in the car on the way home last night. The meal plan is nothing fancy, and it involves primarily meals I know we already have the ingredients for. It will save me a trip to the grocery store and cut down on our grocery budget for the week. It’s a win in my book.

To be honest, I was exhausted when I made the plan, which also encouraged me to stick to easy recipes. These are recipes I know by heart and will not take a lot of effort to make this week.

Steal My Meal Plan

I will always encourage you to build a meal plan that works for your family. This is a meal plan that works for us and our schedule this week; it might not be ideal for you. However, the best way to build on your meal plan ideas is to see what others have planned as well.
