If you’re in the majority of the general population, odds are that you’re thinking about organizing your life and eating healthier in the new year. I know that I am! For me, getting organized starts with meal planning. Dinnertime is always the most hectic time of the day, and if I don’t have a solid plan I can easily end up putting everyone on “fend for yourself mode” and leaving them to dig out leftovers or make their own deli sandwiches. Even worse, I’ll skip at-home dinner prep altogether and order out from a local restaurant or take a trip through a high calorie drive thru.


To save myself the time and stress, I put together a dinner menu that will carry me through the entire month. I included meals that my picky kiddos will (hopefully!) eat and lots of chicken recipes since that’s what we eat the most. Now when dinnertime rolls around I just take a quick glance at my monthly menu and easily see what’s for dinner. Bonus: when your meals are pre-planned, it makes grocery shopping so much easier. If you stop buying lots of random food without having a real plan for it, you’ll save yourself a ton of money and waste!

  1. WOW!!! You did the hard part, thanks so much. I am so tired of coming home and trying to make a plan last minute. I am hoping to plan it all out and then if I am running late the kids or hubby can get things started. Hoping to shift the focus from me providing every meal to a team effort meal prep plan. Thanks for the great start

  2. Have you considered including a shopping list with these meal plans? I would seriously be on your page constantly if you did! These meals look delicious, but I don’t have time to go through each recipe to create a monthly shopping list.

    1. Thanks for the suggestion, Katrina! I’ll have to look into that if time allows for the next one. 🙂

  3. I can’t seem to find the menu plan, where exactly do I click? Is it all in the “Related Posts”? or is there actually a calender/ list?

    1. Hi Mara, there is a list of 31 dinners right in this post. It is powered by Inlinkz, and I have heard that on some browswers and mobile devices it isn’t showing up correctly. Try switching browsers, and see if that helps. 🙂
