Hi everyone, I am actually on time this month with my monthly meal plan! I hope it’s helping you out some, and alleviating a little bit of your stress!



In the download there will be some recipes that are underlined. You should be able to click on those to get a recipe. I’ve also had a lot of questions about my smoothies! So I wanted to share a quick mix we use!

Fruit Smoothies:


  • 1 banana (frozen is better, but I will work at room temp.)
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries (Again, room temp is okay)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt (We prefer frozen yogurt)
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • Optional: 2-3 tablespoons honey to taste (The plain fruit can be a bit sour, but the orange juice helps with this, so try it before adding honey)


Add all ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth! Pour into glasses and serve!

This usually serves my 4 kiddos and me, but they all get half glasses. If I need a little more, I’ll just add in some more milk or juice. It makes the smoothie a bit runny, but no one seems to mind and it’s cheaper that way!

Note: Really you can use any type of fruit you prefer! Some of our favorites alternatives to above:

  • Mango, peach, & banana.
  • Raspberry, Blueberry, and Strawberry

Alternative: We also love the Jamba and Yoplait smoothie mixes you can get in the frozen food section. I just add milk or juice to them for a really fast smoothie! Each one has only about 110 calories.

Hope you enjoy your meals this month! If any one has any yummy meals to share, leave a comment below, I’d love to get some new ideas!


  1. This is great! It reminds me of my childcare days (I was a licensed Family Childcare Provider for the United States Air Force)! 🙂 I miss having a whole month planned out. I may steal a couple of your ideas. 😉 Thanks again! You are a blessing!

  2. What do you do when you just don’t feel like making what is scheduled for the day? What do you do when something comes up and you don’t end up making the day’s meals? Do you just skip it or move it to a new day?

  3. Just wanted you to know that I really appreciate your menu planners. It has really helped me create something that works for our family – something I just couldn’t perfect but you took what was in my head and put it on paper! Thanks 🙂
