Who is busy, often tired with too much on their plate? Who, even with the chaos of life, values health and good nutrition for yourself and family? I definitely fall in these categories and I bet you just might too (especially if you are reading this). Menu planning simply is key to improving your nutrition for your family. We will be collaborating with some of the best blogs on the internet to share delicious recipes with you EVERY week! As a Registered Dietitian I am thrilled to help your nutrition life!
Follow the first week of our menu planning below from Playground Parkbench.
Meet the moms behind these delicious meal ideas:
Meghan is a mother of 3 kids, ages 5 and under. She LOVES to cook, though her kids don’t always LOVE to eat it. It’s a fine balance to find food she and her husband enjoy, that the kids can also eat (no short order cooks around here!), and that involve limited prep… because prep time usually includes a toddler hanging off her leg. A Texan living in New England, her food preferences often take a Mexican twist to satisfy cravings from home. She meal plans because it’s financially savvy and makes one less thing to think about at the end of every busy day!
Stefanie (this is me) is a Slovakian Buffalo girl who was always country at heart. She’s a real wife, mom of 3, artist and registered dietitian (the one of the bunch actually officially trained to meal plan!). She and her family planted their roots on 10 acres of dirt and tumble weeds, making their dreams of the country life and farming come to life… although not without some bumps along the way as they learn the ropes. She meal plans because she’s trained to (and it’s a long way to the nearest grocery store if she forgets ‘just that one ingredient’)!
Rachael is a real mom with real kids. She is a Marine Corps Wife, and Mom of four. She considers herself a super hero, and thinks every mom should too! Whether you stay at home or work full time, your lives are devoted to raising tiny humans and it often takes a little bit of magic, a dash of pixi dust, and a few super powers just to make it through the day! Everyday is a learning experience and has something new to enjoy. She hopes her weekly meal plans give you one more tool in your Super Mom arsenal.
