One of my favorite weekend rituals is waking up early to plan our meals for the week ahead. I know a lot of families struggle with eating healthful meals or find themselves at the end of a long day with nothing planned to feed the tired and hungry mouths looking at them in anticipation. While there are a lot of aspects of motherhood I can decidedly confirm are difficult for me, planning and executing weekly meal plans isn’t one of them. My hope is that sharing my meal plans (and recipe links, where appropriate) will inspire you to browse through Pinterest or your cookbook collection to find something to nourish your family with.
