Our April Monthly Meal Plan (and FREE Printable)

Happy April, friends! Today I’m sharing our monthly meal plan today (and a free printable if you scroll down to the bottom). Hope it gives you some inspiration if you’re in a meal planning rut!

Breakfast is pretty much the same each week… Routine seems to be a big help with breakfast around here!

  • Monday: Oatmeal
  • Tuesday: Scrambled Eggs (with toast or in burritos)
  • Wednesday: Homemade Granola with Yogurt
  • Thursday: Oatmeal
  • Friday: Muffins
  • Saturday: Cereal
  • Sunday: Smoothies and Granola

Lunches are a little less routine… It just seems to work best to plan leftovers, sandwiches, quesadillas or snack lunches (crackers, cheese, fresh fruit and veggies, popcorn, whatever we can pull together quick).

Mmmmkay, let’s get to this month’s dinner plan:

  1. White Chicken Chili

We did better sticking to the meal plan last month, but we did mix things up a bit from time to time… I’ve found that it helps to have a full month of meals planned, even if we don’t make everything on the original date planned. And one more little reminder… We are a normal family that changes things around as needed. If we have leftovers or takeout, we’ll save the planned meal for a different night!

Here’s our FREE meal planning printable if you want to plan meals for the whole month too, or use our meal planning inserts to keep your meal plan handy when you’re on the go!
