Meal Plan: Week 1

I truly enjoy meal planning. I like looking through my cookbooks. I like pulling up recipes from different websites. I like creating a list of foods that we’ll have each week. But, I know that not everyone else enjoys the process of meal planning. So…I’m going to share my meal plans with you.

Each week, I plan 4-5 (sometimes 3) dinners. Sometimes we use all of them. Sometimes a meal doesn’t happen so it gets rolled over to the next week. I try new recipes and I use tried-and-true recipes. I try to plan dinners that have leftovers so that we can use them for lunch and I also plan a couple of lunch ideas. I also plan a couple of breakfast ideas.

Here’s what’s in my plan for this week…


  • Smoothies
  • Egg Scrambles & Toast


  • Leftovers
  • Burrito bowls


  • Chicken Schnitzel & Warm Potato Salad (potato salad recipe is from the back of a salad dressing bottle)
  • Glazed Chinese Five Spice Chicken & Cucumber Salad (both from Fat Salt Acid Heat)
  • Tacos
  • Grilled BBQ Chicken Legs & Roasted Veggies

I’ll share where I got the recipe from as often as I can. Some of our meals are things that we’ve been doing for years so I don’t know where they originated. I hope this helps you with some meal planning inspiration. Stay tuned for more ideas throughout the year!
