Answering the question, WHAT’s for dinner, these 30 Day meal planning challenge printables will help keep you inspired, and avoid this question, night after night. Meal planning can mean different things to different people, batch cooking, freezer cooking, menu planning, Meal prepping on the weekends, and they are all good options, that I use often, but there is still the questions of WHAT’s to cook?
One of the biggest problems that most people face is WHAT to cook. We have our regular recipes in the rotation, and we get bored. Happens to me ALL the time.
Avoid dinner time boredom
This printable will give you a month’s worth of categories and ideas to help you when you sit down to meal plan and make your grocery list. I tend to meal plan weekly, but I’ve had success in the past doing monthly meal plans as well.
PRO TIP: Get everyone in the family involved. Have them choose a category and a recipe they would like to try. Add it to the list, and have them help cook dinner on that night.
Instead of providing a weekly or monthly meal plan that may not suit your family, these prompts are designed to keep you inspired, and make your menu planning easier. I do also have recipe collections on the blog to give you new recipes to try that match many of these prompts.
Use your family favorite recipes or the ones in the recipe collections, or a combination of both. Whatever works for YOU, that’s what’s most important! We’ve got NO rules here….
I hope you find them helpful in Answering the Question, What’s for dinner tonight? Use the Daily Prompts to help inspire you when doing your weekly Meal Planning, we call it Pick and Choose. Pick a category, choose a Recipe, write a grocery list and Dinner is Done! Pick and Choose what your family will like best, and then try a few new things while you’re at it…. just for fun. You get the idea.
