Menu Planning Printable *Free Printable*

I love color!
I love fonts!
I love lists!

I took all my loves and made a menu planner!

Each week, I take a few minutes 
and write out the list of meals that we
are going to be eating for the week.

When I don't...we eat a lot of crap!
Cause I can't come up with anything good at the last second. 

I usually just right the menu
at the bottom of planner...kind of boring!

I have started using these menu planner sheets.
I leave it on the side of the fridge.

Now when I hear:
"Mmmmooooooommmmm, what are we having for dinner?"
they know they can just look at the list
 on the fridge! 

I also added a square for a goal
that I want to work on that week...
like eat more fruits and veggies
try a new food that I have never cooked with
drink more water.
This way the goal is always
right there.
I can't forget it that way!

I also added a grocery list.
When i plan out my meals
I write out my grocery list at the same time.

You can even save each weeks paper
and in a few weeks
you will have pre done meal plans 
that are good for your family!

  Sometimes I am in an orange mood, or a blue mood or a purple mood!
I didn't want my menu to look the same every week
so I made it in tons of color combinations 
so that you can find something to make you happy!

Please enjoy!

Just click on the image to open the larger version
or open it in a new window
and then right click 
and save it to your computer!

i am strong
i can take time for me, that is okay
i am beautiful, inside and out
i CAN find time to eat a healthy balanced diet
i am not less of a person if my house is messy
i can do anything i put my mind to

Being able to really break down and list what we eat, will help me cut down the pounds.

Love the bright colors! I don't normally plan my meals, but the older my little ones get, the more that I think I could save a lot of time and energy *(and probably money) by meal planning!

I am not good at menu planning. Especially because Rob is never home. Once he gets off overtime I WILL do better, cook healthier and with the help of this super cute printable.
