Pinterest Challenge- Meal Planning

Pinterest Challenge- Meal Planning

Those of you who have known us for at least the last few years know that G has dietary challenges.  His diet is a moving target that changes drastically too often.  Once I get a handle on what we’re doing to heal him, something forces us to change.  Breakfast and lunch we all eat something different during the week and I try to cook us all three the same thing for dinner.  I am terrible at planning!  I get a little busy or lazy and start relying on the same easy foods that may or may not be best for Gage.  I’ve been wanting to try something more structured so I looked around on Pinterest and found lots of ideas.  I decided to go with this pin because I liked the idea of having a bunch of ideas on post-it notes that I could move around so that I didn’t have to reinvent the whole thing each week.  I also liked that it came with printable templates and that I had a folder with pocket protectors that I could use.  The only thing I purchased were the post-its.

I spent an hour and 15 minutes and I got the bare bones set up.  I set it up for 4 weeks.  I filled it in with basic ideas, not specific recipes.  I need to spend the next few days filling up the Ideas pages!  I’m sure I’ll be using Pinterest for this and when I do I’ll give you an update on how I’m using the new planner.  I’m excited about it.  I hope it will save me time, money and stress.

    1. Wish we could eat out more, but G’s diet makes it so difficult. Jason eats out every day for lunch and I do go out a lot for lunch, so this will be a good exercise.

  1. This is a great idea. It should make planning, shopping , and cooking meals less stressful. Can’t wait to hear how it works out.
