Meal Planning/ Monthly Meal Plans

August Monthly Meal Plan

Sharing is caring!

This time of year is so busy as we enjoy our final month of summer and get ready to go back to school! This is why I love monthly meal planning so much, all of August is planned so now there won’t be a scramble to make dinner every night. If you want to learn more about monthly meal planning you can check out my monthly meal planning workbook here (now 50% off!)

What about Breakfast and Lunch?

I don’t plan our breakfasts and lunches. Our children are 12 and 14 and are pretty independent with these meals. I just make sure we have basic supplies on hand so they can help themselves. In the summer I need to really keep some extra food on hand, especially for the 12-year-old; he is growing so fast and eats 5 meals a day!

Breakfast basics we keep on hand:

  • Eggs
  • Toast
  • Pancake mix
  • Oatmeal
  • Waffles
  • Fruit
  • Yogurts
  • Cottage Cheese
  • Cereals

Hot breakfast meals I like to make occasionally:

Lunch basics we keep on hand:

  • Lunchmeat
  • Cheeses
  • Lettuce and tomatoes
  • Bread and wraps
  • Tuna salad
  • Tortillas and cheese for quesadillas
  • Chicken Salad
  • Egg Salad
  • Raman (if you have teens you probably have Raman Noodles in your house)
  • Macaroni and Cheese
  • Cut Vegetables and dip
  • French fries or tater tots – the kids can cook in the airfryer.
  • Frozen Pizzas
