Thrive at Five Meal Plan – Week #28 ~ A weekly meal plan for busy parents. This week’s meal plan features a roasted beetroot salad, grilled onion bomb, grilled chicken skewers, spiced pork chops with pineapple salsa, pan-seared salmon with peach salsa, a BLT salad on a stick and a yummy mixed berry pie.
I’m getting ready for the long weekend and the last thing I want to do is worry about what to cook for dinner. That is why I meal plan. I take 15 minutes of my day to plan out my meals and build my groceries list right before heading to the store. This ensures that my days run smoothly the rest of the week.
I no longer need to spend time trying to figure out what to cook on any given day or if I have all of the ingredients at hand for a particular dish.
A clear mind is absolutely necessary for good productivity. As a busy, work-from-home mom, meal planning has helped clear my mind from some of the daily house work to focus better on other things.
If you want to learn more about how I meal plan, read my simple guide to meal planning and if you have any additional tips you’d like to share please leave them in the comments below. I’m always looking for new tips to make my life easier. 😉
I’ve teamed up with an amazing group of bloggers to share the weekly Thrive at Five Meal Plan. Our goal is to help you get a homemade dinner on the table quickly and easily without the daily battle of deciding what to cook for dinner. Every Friday, we will be doing a round up of recipes to help you plan out your meal for the week and also include a little treat or two.
