Meal Plan Monday 9/17/12

Today I am starting a new meal plan series inspired by Modern Alternative Kitchen. Watch my introduction video and join in the meal planning fun. Based on enthusiastic feedback I received on Facebook, I am going to start posting meal plans! Modern Alternative Kitchen will be hosting a weekly meal planning share where a group of nutrition and food bloggers will be sharing meal plans so this will be a huge resource for everyone. I will participate in the MAK meal plan share post at least once a month, maybe more!

Meal planning can be overwhelming when you first start doing it. Sitting down and staring at a blank sheet of paper can make you draw a blank on what to make. Once you have done it a few times it becomes easy and quick. Develop your own system of creating your plan. Whether its on your computer or down on paper, chose the method that works best for you. It is smart to create your meal plan based on your schedule for the week. Plan for leftovers on the days where you have a lot going on so it relieves some pressure on those days. Also, don’t worry if you don’t stick to the plan 100%, its OK. Just having the plan is what helps you be organized and be able to have a home cooked meal for your family.
