Meal Planning - Weekly Dinner Plan

Hello and happy Meal Planning Monday! This is week 12 of my weekly dinner plan – already! Time really does fly.

A meal plan is a great way to save money at the grocery store and solves the daily question “what’s for dinner?” It also save loads of time in the evenings after work. My favourite part. I use a Google spread sheet for my menu plans, but you can use whatever you feel comfortable with or what works for you – a simple notebook, a scrap of paper tacked to the fridge, or you can find some meal-planning notebooks here.

If you’re new to meal planning, check out my post as to how to get started, here, and if you would like to see some of the previous weeks’ dinner plans, click here.


This week, I’ve also included breakfasts and lunches as, starting this week, we’re getting back to our weight loss meal plan in order to lose some weight and eat healthier (and, therefore feel better and more energetic). This week’s menu is compiled almost entirely from Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook. We’ve had a couple of meals previous to this week and have found them to be very delicious! Snacks will consist of nuts, crackers, yoghurt and sorbet (I have a horrible sweet tooth!).

As well as tweaking our eating habits, I’ll be going back to the gym 4 or 5 times a week. I have to admit, it’s been a couple of months, and so I probably need to start out slowly again. 30 minutes on the treadmill followed by 20 minutes or so of strength training.

Of course, I can’t guarantee that we (or you, for that matter) will lose any weight, but if we can feel better and more energetic, then that’s good enough. Losing a bit of weight will be a bonus.
