Meal planning is something that I have really come to enjoy in the last few months. Meal planning helps keep us from buying takeaways, helps us eat healthier and has become an enjoyable part of my week. I love being able to look at a week’s meal plan, shop for the groceries and know that we have lots of nice meals to choose from. Today I’m sharing the Meal Planning Linky Week #2. This linky is hosted by myself, Katykicker, and Naomi from The Organised Life Project. We both LOVE meal planning and want to invite you to join us in sharing your meal plan and keeping motivated.
Meal planning allows me to remove some of the stress from our daily life. I’m able to look each morning and see what food I fancy eating. Also, if we are going to be busy then I can choose a slow cooker dinner and get that on in the morning. This allows us to sit down to a hot meal with minimal effort at a busy time of day.
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 #2
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 #2 are:
Slow cooker cottage pie with sweet potato mash
Fish pie with veg
Slow cooker fakeaway lamb kebab + air fryer chips
Sausage, root veg mash & veg on the side
I love using my triple slow cooker and I have been testing out making side dishes in it recently too. Most of this week’s dinners are Daisy friendly so I won’t have to do that much extra cooking for her.
