Meal planning is something that I have really come to love in recent months. Meal planning helps us avoid buying takeaways, helps us to eat healthier meals and has become an important part of my organisational week. Being able to look at a meal plan, and choose what we are going to eat, takes some of the stress away from our day. Today I’m sharing the Meal Planning Linky Week #3.
Day to day life can feel a little stressful at times. Like a lot of parents I’m juggling multiple activities on a daily basis, and I’m also fitting in working from home too. Meal planning saves me time and effort and best of all it saves us money in the process!
By holding myself accountable, with a meal plan, I am making healthier choices for us. We are cutting out on the takeaways, preparing food from scratch and saving ourselves money too. I have switched from shopping at Tesco to shopping at Aldi and this has helped our grocery budget too.
The Meal Planning Linky is a weekly linky. Naomi and I will be sharing our week’s meal plan and would love you to link yours up too. By sharing meal plans we can all keep ourselves accountable and inspire one another with new ideas and recipes.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #3
I’ll be planning 6 meals per week each week. This leaves 1 day a week for eating leftovers, dining out or visiting friends and family for dinner. We don’t have set days for our meals, as I prefer to decide in the morning which of the meals we want and what fits in with our day’s plans.
My meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #3 are:
Fish + air fryer chips with peas/beans
Lamb dish (Going to look for a recipe with some items I want to use from my cupboard)
Sausage cassoulet with extra veg
Slow cooker whole chicken with all the trimmings
My triple slow cooker is really helpful when I want to make us a slow cooker dinner. I’m able to make us a main dish, a side dish and cook a separate meal for Daisy too. Most of this week’s dinners are Daisy friendly so I won’t have to do that much extra cooking for her. This is always a great week for me!
