Weekly Planning: Meal Planning Guide

| Laura Jones

Hey, Hockey Mommies! Here we are, already about to start month two of hockey season. As if hectic schedules weren’t enough, it’s only going to pick up from here on out.

I often struggle to build and execute a meal plan, week to week. In that light, I am posting some ideas for this week. I often find myself figuring out quick day-of dinner options running to the grocery store to grab a few ingredients. So much for that few minutes of precious time, I hoped to have!

My trainer, Aubrey Miller, told me she plans her meals for the week on Sunday and posts them for her family. I decided to give this idea a try this summer.

I couldn’t imagine being that organized. But let me tell you, it has saved me so much time and money that I absolutely love it! I know some of you are already super organized when it comes to meal planning, but if it doesn’t come naturally to you, give this idea a try:

I’ve found it incredibly helpful to create a folder with your weekly meal plans. That way, when you have a hectic week you can just pull a previous week and head to the grocery store!

Remember to be healthy! Protein, healthy fats and a carb!

During the meal planning process, think of the categories your family most enjoys:

  • Pasta
  • Mexican
  • Vegetarian
  • Breakfast for Dinner
  • Soups
  • Meat Dishes
  • Pizza

You may even want to leave a night for eating out or clean leftovers out the fridge.

Meal Plans

Here are a few meal plan ideas to get you started! I can’t believe how organized this lady is, she has almost the whole year planned out!


Another thing I do is to search Pinterest for recipe ideas. I build the best ones into the weekly meal plans, and if the family likes them, they earn a coveted spot in the ‘favorites’ folder!

Have a great weekend everyone!
