      I have to send little one with lunch and snacks for nursery otherwise we’d probably just buy lunch at work most days haha

    This looks like a great and healthy meal plan. I like that there’s plenty of variety!

    Thank you. I always enjoy reading meal planning tips. I always have great plans to sit down to makes lists, and then I never follow-through. When I come across posts like this, I always feel encouraged to just start over and make a better effort in planning meals for my family.

      Awww flexibility is allowed with my version hahaha as I don’t always follow my plans either. This week, we ate an extra meal from the freezer instead of cooking. I like having this as a base plan when other life events take over so I don’t have to worry about what to prepare

    What great ideas as you plan your meals for the week. I really like being organized like this but I don’t acutally plan out my meals.

    I plan out our meals also and then write up a grocery list based on it. I don’t include snacks though, that might be really helpful to add!

    How lovely and organised you are. I love reading other people’s meal plans and getting some ideas. I love that you use freezer meals and leftovers, too; we all need that little break 🙂

    Meal planning is so helpful! I’ve been thinking through the meals for the next week today. Chicken hot pot sounds interesting.

    I always love seeing someones take on meal planning. This looks like you really set yourself (and us) up for success! I love how simple and healthy your meals are. Also, kudos for reminding me to buy more toilet paper! 🙂
