31 Days of Meal Planning – Thematic Planning

Hey guys!  We’re getting to the fun part!

Themes are a great way to approach meal planning, and there are a lot of ways to do this.  If you’re planning for a month, it takes some of the thinking out of the way if you decide ahead of time that each day will have a theme.  For example, Monday for Soups, Tuesday for Mexican, Wednesday for Crockpot Meals, etc.

You can also do weekly themes.  My husband and I could eat Tex-Mex every day of the week… so a Tex-Mex theme works for us.  If you don’t like having the same type of meal over and over again, though, you can still get creative and have fun themes, like “Superhero Week” or “Pirate Week” and have fun coming up with meals that coordinate.

Here are some themes to get you started:

Breakfast for Dinner
Soups
Meatless Monday
Tex-Mex Tuesday
Italian
Stir Fry
Crock Pot Meals
Chicken
Casseroles
BBQ
Superhero
Harry Potter
Movie Night
Pizza
Pick a Color (All foods the same color)
Tea Party
Salads
Beef
Seafood

Happy Planning!
