               Weekly meal planning is the activity of determining most or all of the meals that are expected to be prepared and/or eaten in the week ahead. It helps many households save time, money and even reduce food waste or spoilage. In some cases, even the quality of the food can be improved drastically. To jumpstart this process, the Weekly Meal Planner template is now available.

How to use

Upper Area

               There are two ways that most tend to view their meal planning, either by the (1) day of the week or (2) type of meal. The solution is designed for both cases, all that is needed is to begin writing the meal plan.

It is possible to write 2-4 items per block depending on the length of its name.

Lower Area

               In the lower area, there are three parts that can be filled: Grocery List, Notes and Advanced Meal Prep.

Grocery List

                As the meal plan begins to take shape, ensuring that there is enough available food stock is essential. When there isn’t, it important to add it to the grocery list. This segment is lightly bordered every fourth cell to allow users to segmentize their grocery categories if needed.

Notes

               There is always something that can happen before, during and after meal activities that are worth writing about. That is why there is a note section! Below are a few items that may be worth having a note on:

  • Were there any recipe changes of note?
  • Is there a new meal idea to try?
  • Was this week’s meal heavy on carbohydrates/sugar/etc?
  • Is there a nutrient(s) missing from this week’s meal? (E.g., Zing, Omega 3, etc)
  • Is someone else in charge of a specific meal? Should it be noted on the weekly meal planner?

Advanced Meal Prep

               Many people have busy schedules and it can be difficult to find the time to prepare three meals every day. That is one reason why doing advanced meal preparations can help improve one’s schedule. Here are a few examples of questions that should be covered in an Advanced Meal Prep:

  • Is there something that needs to be marinated?
  • Do I need to take the meat out of the freezer?
  • Can a few meals be done in advance to optimize my schedule? What would it be?
