We’ve been sharing 5 day weekly meal plans for many years now and we love the feedback we get from those of you who found our meal plans and who are using them regularly.

Each meal plan has 5 dinner recipes that will serve approximately 4 adults.  We’ve tried to be thoughtful about including recipes that the whole family will love as well as varying the recipes to include a variety of different meals so that you’re not having chicken every night!

Why Meal Plan?

If you’re reading this, you probably already have your own ideas about why meal planning is a good idea for your family, but here’s what we think:

1. Save Money:

We’ve included the estimated cost per recipe and cost for the entire meal plan, making it even easier to budget and see exactly how much you’re saving when you cook from scratch and use a meal plan!  You’ll also save money by dining out less often, avoiding impulse purchases, and wasting less food!

*note that recipe costs are an estimate based on ingredient prices at my local grocer.  They will likely vary depending on where you live.

2. Eat Healthier:

Cooking from scratch is a great way to manage your health goals.  Both take-out and pre-made meals from your local grocer are going to have more fat, sugar, and sodium than the same foods cooked at home.

3. Save time:

The hardest part of meal planning is finding the ideas and creating a shopping list, and we’ve done that for you!  Our Shopping lists include categories like “pantry staples”, and “spices,” and hopefully those are items you already have on hand so you can cross them off of the list. Then you can use the categories to help you find what you need quickly and easily.

Don’t forget to search for appetizers, sides, or dessert recipes to add to your list.  Often a post will offer suggestions for sides that might accompany the recipe, and if you would like to swap any meals for a different meal, visit our main dish recipes or search our recipe index.

If you love our recipes, please leave a 5 star comment at the bottom of the recipe and join our Facebook group, “From Scratch Food Lovers.”
