It’s August – that means we’re eating lots of salad and smoothies to stay cool!
A while back I stopped posting my weekly meal plan. Honestly, I was getting bored posting it, so I thought you might be sick of reading it every week!
I enjoy reading other’s meal plans periodically. I always come away with new recipes or ideas to try. I decided to switch to posting my meal plan monthly. Hopefully that will still provide some inspiration for your meal planning, but not be repetitive and yawn-worthy:)
And yes! We’re halfway through August already! This month snuck up on me, but I’ll post the whole month’s menu anyway.
Meal Plan for August
Breakfast: We don’t do a ton of variety for breakfast. We’ll repeat these throughout the month:
Lunch: We generally eat leftovers for lunch. If we don’t have leftovers we’ll have:
- Taco bowls
- PB & honey sandwiches and fruit
- Salad with hardboiled eggs
Supper: I’ve been planning our suppers using Lindsey’s meal planning method. I chose a theme for each day of the week. I pick one or two meals for each day, then repeat through the month. It’s been working great! I like having variety, but also some simplicity and predictability to our meals. It keeps all of us happy:)
Sundays(grilling)– Burgers or hotdogs, with salad, potato salad or cut up veggies and hummus.
Mondays(roast) – Beef roast*, rice and green beans or Chicken Mahkani.
Tuesdays(sandwiches) – Gyros or tuna melts, with cut up veggies or fried potatoes.
Wednesdays(Italian) –One pot spaghetti or chicken alfredo (with broccoli).
Fridays(date night) – Homemade pizza. Sometimes we all eat together, other times I feed the kids pancake sandwiches and bake the pizza after they’re in bed;)
Saturdays(Fish or vegetarian) – Salad with bean burgers or salmon patties.
