This may sound incredibly strict and cumbersome. But, wait! It doesn't need to be complicated. Perhaps the notion of being locked into eating what you wrote down on a particular day is holding you back. One solution is to make your meal plan adjustable. All you need are post-it notes on a sheet of paper. Place it somewhere that is visible for you and your family so everyone can see the plan. With this simple strategy, your dinner/meals plan for the day can be changed by simply moving a post-it! Below is a 6-day example, which works for my family. Saturdays are a wild-card. Feel free to use 7 post-its if that's best for you.
How do you plan your meals? Dinner only, 3 meals a day with snacks, or do you "wing-it?" Please share in the comments below!
