October Meal Planning

Tuesday, October 4, 2016

Something about the cooler weather gets me in a much better mindset at meal planning.  I don't want to jinx myself but we've been in a little bit of a roll over here for meals and kids actually eating.  We haven't had any leftovers in days!

And I'm still incorporating the lessons for myself that I learned in 21day fix about portions and eating to fuel my body in the best way possible.  I'm hoping to get back into a regular workout routine too, but I'm not quite there yet with our daily schedule.  

Here's what we have on the docket for the month.  I have some fall-themed ideas for some breakfasts and desserts through out too.  We also have Brandon's birthday, our anniversary, and Halloween!  So much fun that can be celebrated through food and meal times.  Happy dining to you all!

  1. Love these posts so much! We were preparing for and then attending an out-of-town wedding last weekend, so I'm behind on my planning, but I'm LOVING having all the meals figured out a month at a time. I'll be stealing a few of your ideas for our house too :)

  2. I could plan dessert/sweets for a month... but planning dinners for a month is overwhelming! Hah!
