Menu plans


Here's where I share my (mostly) real food and seasonal menu plan with you for breakfasts, lunches, snacks and dinners. I've included recipe links where I have them, so feel free to peruse my plans for your own meal-time inspiration.

I keep track of what food we have in the house with a Google Drive spreadsheet, which I can check from my phone or computer. This spreadsheet is an invaluable resource menu planning, as it ensures I use the food we already have before buying more. Food gets used when it's fresher, we don't waste as much food and we save money.
