One of my favorite ministries is serving as the Meal Planning Contributor for The Better Mom, where I share my bi-weekly real food meal plans as a way to help inspire and encourage others.
I thought it would be nice to give you the heads-up on what’s on the menu for the week ahead. FEATURED RECIPE: August is National Peach Month and this delectable Grilled Peaches & Cream recipe is a perfect way to showcase the sweet fresh flavor of ripe summer peaches!

This 14 day clean eating meal plan will change your life because it makes eating healthy easy for the whole family!
My philosophy on eating well has always come with a little flack from the internet community. Eating real food is what I strive for and is the motivating factor for my lifestyle (hello hobby farm!) As much as I love weeding and tending animals, I’m really in it for the FOOD!
80% of the time I make a very deliberate effort to include whole grains, lots of protein, vegetables, and fruit in our eating. The links go to the recipes but some of the recipes can only be found in my EBook Real Food For Real Families. Clean eating is all about eating real foods, those foods that are found in nature and are as unprocessed as possible.
If you have a laminator (or can access one) simple laminate your printable then you can write on it with a board marker and wipe clean each week. Filed Under: free printables, meal planning This page and all pages on this site contain links to outside sources including paid affiliates.
We plan our meals for the week every weekend and write them all on a white board that hangs in our kitchen.
Great, I love these ?? We use a chalk board for our meal planning, I’m to a list junkie ?? but I may just print one of these and use your laminater idea!!!
You can even pick up different coloured board markers in poundshops so it could be really pretty and reusable for almost nothing at all.

Last time, we talked about the benefits of having a Meal Plan Rotation system for your family. Today, we are going to tackle the background and pre-planning you will need to do in order to have an effective meal plan rotation. Finally, figure out a menu planning station in which you can quickly and easily access and display your menu plan. Then get out there and find some resources that will help make your “menu planning station” easily accessible and, of course, fun! Stay tuned for the next post where we’ll talk about preparing your pantry, fridge and freezer for meal planning!

Here’s the secret to making real food a lifestyle change and not just a fun idea or a weeklong diet. This lifestyle is made achievable, attainable, and desirable by focusing on one simple word: balance. I don’t have a pantry full of health-food-store-only-products; I tend to learn towards traditional or “old-fashioned” ingredients.
Whole grains are popular and it’s pretty easy to find great simple whole grain products.
I’d much rather have my kids eat my butter, sugar, and white flour chocolate chip cookies than anything made with a box of sugar-free Jell-O. It’s all of my tips, tricks, recipes, and thoughts on how to feed your family well, all in one place.
Taking the planning out of life changes will make it attainable, reachable, and so much less of a headache. I am such a list girl, so definitely getting a couple of these printable’s printed for my new house!
I’ve had some people tell us it’s weird but it saves us money and stops us wasting so much food! I really like your tips in the articles at the bottom of this post too (meal planning 101), particularly your tip around sorting out your recipe folder so that you never get bored and you always have something to make that both you and Mr Thrifty like.
In case you missed it or need to be reminded of them, make sure you check the post out here: What is A Meal Rotation System. It doesn’t have to be fancy, just an area that you can keep everything close you will need for your menu and grocery planning. If you need some ideas and are already a member, Pinterest has a wealth of fabulous menu planning board ideas! A couple more great, simple, pre-made options are this weekly menu planner from Amy Bayliss at Cajun Joie de Vivre and this monthly menu planner  from Jolanthe at No Ordinary Moments. Did you also know severe diabetes can also cause coronary artery disease, hypertension, or stroke? Exercise and proper diet are necessary to achieve and maintain weight loss and muscle definition. Remember: To view the recipe links for each of the meal plans below, please pop on over to The Better Mom. No need to figure out all those crazy natural sweeteners when bees and trees got us covered. I’m more scared of all that fake stuff than normal old flour, sugar, chocolate, and butter. I am intentional in my efforts to raise well-rounded kids who will try most anything, who enjoy green smoothies, and who will never say no to a sucker at the bank. Now you don’t have to be a short order cook and make something for your family and something different for yourself.
Plus it comes with ideas and recipes for breakfast, lunch, and snacks (because we all know there’s a lot more than just dinner to plan!!!), shopping lists, must-read book list, and about a million other things that made it much too long for one blog post. Enjoy a few free recipes on the house and be excited about eating clean with your whole crew.
You’ve inspired me to get a folder sorted too as we seem to do the same old recipes all of the time and we need more inspiration. In the last post, I suggested you find out what your family’s favourite meals are and what kinds of new things they would like to try.
I have a friend who uses Excel and moves her meals around on there, then she prints and posts it on her fridge. You can find something like the board I used at either Staples, Michael’s, Wal-mart, or any office store.

You can still move them around if you want, but it gives you a great framework to start with. Additionally, please refrain from adapting recipes without properly linking back to the original recipe, and keep in mind that simple substitutions do not constitute an adapted or original recipe.
Eating clean is a lifestyle and I’m here to help you achieve your goals of eating better. It just is not available to me in my tiny middle-of-nowhere town, and I can’t afford it. T, times that by 7 (the number of days in a week), and you have roughly 35 eating sessions in a week that you have to make decisions about. The recipes are printer ready and it even comes with a shopping list just waiting for you to print off! It was all because I didn’t take the little time and effort, in advance, to ensure it would work well for my family.
Do you regularly have kids out in the evenings for lessons or youth or extra curricular events? Talk to them about your desire to make this work for your family and fill them in on all the benefits. Other people have dry-erase or chalk-board menu plan boards, so they can write in the meals for each day. You may also want to get a binder to keep some of your recipes close-by, but we’ll get to that a little later. Plus I can see everyone’s schedules with the meal plan to make it even easier to figure our the best meals for each day.
When you are doing well in your home, it’s ok to let them eat a little junk when they are out. If you make healthy choices 80% of the time, that means you are eating 28 out of 35 meals or snacks in a week that are real food.
You need to have a clear picture and reminder of your goals for this, so you don’t lose sight of the benefits along the way. Sometimes I’ll put the link to an internet recipe in the notes or the name of the cookbook in the location box. Getting the entire family on board with eating well had never be easier and I’m here to show you how.
It’s a simplified version of Rouladen that can be cooked in a crock pot or a Dutch oven. No matter the home, you need to determine when you will be at home and have time to prepare your meals. Some of us have loads of time to spend in the kitchen, others are barely able to get in 15 minutes. But in the long run, it will tremendously benefit you as you find more time to spend with your family and less time spent stressing about meals. If you have multiple nights in a week where you will be out, then it might be a good idea to plan pizza, take out, leftovers or something quick you can put together for those nights.
Figure out the time that would work best for you to set aside in order to do the monthly plan. While copying the way someone else does things is an excellent start, you need to find something that you WILL use for your family. Plan to have meals made ahead and frozen, or make crock pot meal ingredients, freeze and put into the crock pot early in the day. I do grocery lists on Thursday nights because our fliers come in the paper then, and we usually shop after our homeschool co-op group on Friday afternoons.
So in order to come up with a system that  will work for you, you need to evaluate your family’s needs.
