30 Day Meal Planning Challenge; Fall Food

Recently I saw something on Facebook that said, ‘The hardest part about being an adult is having to decide what was for dinner…every single day.’  I know I’ve been there! I’ve also been in the position of rotating the same 4-6 meals constantly. And, if we are being totally honest (we are all friends here right?), we’ve eaten out several times a week just because truthfully, I had no clue what to make.    STOP NOW and PIN this page now, you can thank me later! 


30 Day Meal Planning Challenge with Love on a Plate


My friends, no more!  Meal planning is a great way not only to save money, reduce the amount to time you live, I mean visit, the grocery store, but also to get some variety in your meal plan rotation.  And this Meal Plan Challenge is perfect for helping you to not only plan out your meals, but to do so quickly and easily.  

What is the Meal Planning Challenge?

The Meal Planning Challenge is designed to help you easily plan out your next 30 dinners.  Each day has a menu theme to help you quickly find a dinner to make.  

How does the Meal Planning Challenge work?

The goal of the Meal Planning Challenge was to make dinners as easy as possible.  Start by printing the Meal Planning Challenge sheet as well as a menu and grocery list.  Then, sit down and get to planning! Each bubble on the challenge has a dinner theme (for example Italian night).  Then, on your menu you would write down a meal using that theme (example, Chicken and Broccoli Fettuccine Alfredo) And finally, on your grocery list, write down the ingredients you need to pick up to make the meal.  Continue working until your menu is filled.  

Having the dinner themes makes coming up with different dinner ideas super easy.  And if you aren’t sure what to make,  we will have lots of suggestions sent daily.  You can also follow my Pinterest board for more fabulous ideas.

We’re going to be running the 30 Day Meal Plan Challenge LIVE and Interactive launching September 27th and running from  October 1-31st
