About the meal plan

  • This meal plan will serve 4. Some recipes will serve more than four depending on your portion sizes.
  • It’s a meal plan for one week of dinner ideas.
  • Some recipes are intended to create premeditated leftovers, like casseroles or large pots of soup. This saves on the budget.
  • It is understood that you have common ingredients in your pantry such as salt and pepper so those are not included in the ingredient lists.
  • Some recipes will call for ingredients that can be used in multiple recipes for the week. Such as a head of lettuce can be used to make side salads with a small amount also portioned for tacos. A bag of carrots can be used for multiple dishes in one week to avoid waste.
  • There are 7 dinner ideas each week, in no particular order.
