Meal Planning/ Monthly Meal Plans

January Monthly Meal Plan

Sharing is caring!

Meal planning is one of my best sanity savers. Planning out a month’s worth of meals ahead of time has simplified our grocery shopping and made dinner time a breeze. This month our menu is filled with soups, stews, and other cozy meals that we love. As I share our monthly meal plans you’ll notice that we have family favorites like taco salad, pasta, and curries that we always enjoy. I hope that you’ll be inspired to try monthly meal planning and you might even find a few new recipes to try.

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.

Breakfast basics we keep on hand:

  • Eggs
  • Toast
  • 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
  • Chicken Salad
  • Egg Salad
  • Raman (if you have teens you probably have Raman Noodles in your house)
  • Macaroni and Cheese
  • Cut Vegetables and dip

Monthly Meal Plan for January 2021

I often write my monthly meal plan in my Erin Condren Daily Duo Planner. I like to have it with me throughout the month. I also write our weekly menu on a weekly sheet that I hang in our kitchen.
