Family Friendly Meal PlanJan 02 2012 by Sarah
It’s a new year and one of the most common resolutions is to start eating right. But those of us with families know that eating right is a whole lot easier when everyone participates. If you’re family is less than thrilled to begin this journey with you never fear! This meal plan has been taste tested and approved by 2 of the pickiest children in the world and a veggie fearing, bean hating husband. This is just one of my families favorite meal plans. Stay tuned for more of our favorite daily meals.
Breakfast – 1 Pizza Waffle with marinara dipping sauce
Snack – 1 apple (cut into slices) with 2 tbsp peanut butter
Lunch – Crispy Fried Rice (served hot or cold). My kids usually have about a cup each and my husband has about 2 cups.
Snack – Zucchini Chips
Snack – We don’t usually snack after dinner but if the kids do get hungry they usually grab a Homemade Fruit Strip.
Almost everything on this meal plan is something that I make in a large quantity and freeze for later on. With a busy family to take care of I don’t always have time to make each and every meal during the day. When I do need to make a meal, I make a ton of it. My freezer is usually stocked with Pizza Waffles, Crispy Fried Rice (if it’s a bit dry when you reheat it add a tbsp or so of tamari or soy sauce) and Black Bean Pumpkin Burgers. I actually prep my sweet potatoes and store them in freezer safe bags so all the work is done for me when we have a craving for fries.
Providing healthy and nutritious meals for your family doesn’t have to be challenge. With a little planning (and a freezer!) you can easily put a delicious meal on the table each night!
