Weekly Family Meal Plan 2017 Week 21

Weekly Meal Plan Ideas sharing real food for real families. Save time and money by planning easy menus for your family.

Happy Monday meal planners! Welcome back to another week of menu ideas and inspiration to help you create your own easy. mostly "real-food" meal plan for your family. When we use a meal plan system, we eat better, save time and save money and that's a big win for everyone! It doesn't have to be complicated, so read on and get inspired.

I can't believe the unofficial beginning of summer is here.  Spring went by in a blur of lacrosse around here, and while I will miss seeing my boys play, I won't miss the frantic pace and constant stream of practices and games. Just a few more weeks of end-of-school-year activities to go and  I am most definitely looking forward to an easier and slower summer schedule.

Weekly Family Meal Plan 2017 - Week 20

Weekly Meal Plan Ideas sharing real food for real families. Save time and money by planning easy menus for your family.

Happy Monday meal planners, welcome back! Is this your first time here? Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find something here that will inspire you to plan to prepare quick, healthy meals for your family each week. 

So, it's confession time for my regular readers. . . I have not been following my meal plan! I know. . .it's always important to me to be REAL here. I don't post food I don't eat or clothes I don't own and wear. My goal isn't to impress you, it's to inspire you. But lately, life has gotten so out of control, I have fallen to my old pre-meal planning ways and I'm reminded of why I began this journey in the first place.

A few things happen when I don't visit the store regularly, and plan out 3-4 meals a week: we eat a lot of take out food, we spend a lot more money and we're not connecting as a family over meals. I keep telling myself this is only a "season" of time, and that once spring sports are over, life will return to a more "normal" state. But in the meantime, there is a lot of guilt and negative self-talk on my part. One more truth to add, if I am brutally honest, the kids seem unfazed by this change in our routine.

Happy Monday meal planners. Welcome back for another week of meal planning ideas. If you're new here, thanks for stopping by and I hope you can find a meal planning idea to inspire you on your own journey to feeling your family.

I feel as is everything is conspiring against me and my meal planning. . .we are in the last week of regular season lacrosse for my oldest. He has three games this week, including Senior Night. The weather feels more like November than May. And my creativity is just kaput.
