I plan within a loose framework when I buy food for the fridge, then fix whatever seems to appeal to me at the moment from that supply

Sometimes, I wish I did more planning so that I wasn't always thinking of what to make.

Thank you Lord for blessing our steps all the way to the end.

Sort of. I try to have a good range of ingredients on hand so I can create dinner.

I try to at least for my lunches since I pack it to work. I basically keep simple things on hand for breakfast & light dinners & snacks. It isn't written out day by day anywhere.

I usually plan 1-1.5 weeks out. My husband usually does the shopping and I will spend a day getting dishes ready for the week. It makes life much easier, especially with 2 working parents and 2 very active kids! I really feel it if we don't get to do the planning. emoticon

Most of the time, yes. I have several low carb cookbooks that I choose recipes from, and sometimes from Pinterest. Then, I'm lucky enough that my husband does the shopping.

Like Cheryl-Anne, I don't really plan a menu ahead of time, but I do have an idea of what I'll be eating.

Q: Do you plan your meals ahead of time?

A: Kind of. I'm not one who makes a weekly menu, but I do have an idea of the meals I will be preparing for the week and I plan accordingly.
