I don’t know about you guys, but I love printables! They make life so much easier and help me get things done. Below are my meal planning and grocery list tools that I use weekly to stay on track. Without a meal plan, I find myself choosing the quickest and easiest things to eat, which we all know are not always the healthiest. Using these tools, you will be able to set yourself up for a successful week and if you need a little help meal planning, click here to learn the how-to’s.

My first step when making my weekly meal plan is to write down my work and/or school schedule under the days of the week. So if I work Monday from 3-8, I write “work 3-8” right below Monday and then plan my day around that. The reason I do it this way is because I don’t want to plan a long complicated dinner on a ┬ánight where I have to work late. Same idea for breakfast. The mornings when I work early, I want a quick breakfast on the go like my bacon cheddar breakfast sandwiches or a wonderful protein smoothie.

After you fill in all your little boxed on the meal planner, take out your grocery list and fill that out with the ingredients you’ll need for the week. I made this in 2 sizes. One large one for a big trip, and then smaller ones for a refresher trip during the week. The link below will take you to both printables so you can start your new healthy lifestyle!
