Are you a meal planner?  I’ve found that I have a MUCH easier time eating healthy, and keeping our budget, with a meal plan.  So guess what…..I’ve designed a printable meal planner just for you!

Why do I love a meal planner?

  • It keeps me away from the drive-thru:  I am the world’s worst for making a 4:00PM call to the hubby to pick up something on the way home.  If I have a solid plan in place it takes this temptation away.  I’ve made some big changes in my diet in the last year or so, so I definitely don’t want to derail those with a weekly drive-thru cheeseburger.  (Related Reading:  The Marathon Approach to a Healthy Diet)
  • It saves me money:  As a former accountant, I am frugal to the core!  If there’s something out there that will save me a dollar you better believe I’m going to use it.  With my meal plan, I can shop the upcoming sales for the week and also minimize waste.  Plus that drive-thru stop is expensive!
  • It saves me time:  When I meal plan I use a lot of “cook once, eat twice” ideas, also known as leftovers.  As a busy homeschool mom, I feel like I am constantly in the kitchen.  If I plan my leftovers just right this takes some of the work away.
