Below I have listed some weekly food prep and menu plan ideas for June. For most of this year I have been menu planning from week to week. This started due to the supply issues with groceries but I had also got out of the habit of my monthly planning. Planning from week to week takes up much more time and it makes it harder for me to outsource the grocery shopping to my husband as I am not as prepared.
As I have mentioned many times before one of the many benefits of menu planning is that if you write it down it is so easy to tweak and recycle the plans. With the start of June being next week, I simply went through my archives and found a plan that suits our family for this colder time of the year. I now have the next month sorted for evening meals!
I did a big shop on the weekend and before I left I did an audit of the pantry to make sure we are fully stocked on all the essentials. Winter is a busier month for us as we have five football matches over the weekend on top of the weekday training sessions. Making sure we are well stocked means everyone is a little less hangry!
I also use our weekly menu plans as a base most weeks to make items for the kids’ lunch boxes. Here are some ideas for sweet and savoury items to make this month.
If you have tried menu planning before but haven’t succeeded then you should definitely check out my e-course Planned + Present. Registrations are currently open from now until Monday 6th June. In the course we deep dive into menu planning and so many members have had great success implementing my super simple system – see there comments below!
