Family meal plan May 2018

We all know planning our meals ahead can save us time and money, or at least #mealprep hashtaggers keep telling us so. And I agree, it can be a wonderful thing when trying to eat healthier and reduce food waste at home. It also speeds up your shopping trip, an absolute live saver when you shop with two hungry and overstimulated children.

However, in reality we don’t always find the time to put a meal plan together or follow it in detail. If you are a parent, I suspect you spend your weekends trying to fit in house chores, family wholesome activities, 1-2-1 time with each child (yeah right!), marriage saving evenings and a bit of socialising with friends. Unfortunately, meal planning tends to take a back burner.

This is why I wanted to post my own meal plans, whenever I get round to doing one. To help you eat healthy and varied at home, whether you are meat eater, vegetarian, pescatarian, or you follow any specific diet. You’ll also find all the recipes in my blog as the month progresses.

Please let me know in your comments if I’m doing a good job, or if there’s anything in particular you’d like to see. I’ve only included dinners for simplicity, but you can find lots of breakfast and lunch ideas in my Instagram feed.

Also please share my meal plan with your friends and family. The more the merrier!

So here’s my meal plan for May.
