I like your plan. Simple works better for me. I like to create favorite groupings in the tracker for things I commonly eat. I am having some frustration with the tracker because I didn't know how to delete items in the meal plans. The end result was I decided to turn off the automated meal planner and make my own plan.

I start with what I have available and then make a list of what I need.
For breakfast I have either cold or hot cereal and coffee.
For lunch I have protein, veggies and a fruit and sometimes I have a sandwich with salad.
Dinner is usually a starch, protein and vegetables.
For snacks I have cold cereal, pudding, cheese, an egg or nuts. It varies depending on what I feel like having and what's available.
I have difficulty planning what to eat because I try to match my foods with nutrients and sometimes I don't get all the nutrients I need. emoticon

my dh and dont have kids so when we cook, we have to be aware of portion sizes to prevent food waste and to not get tempted with overeating. I also like to find items thatmake easy leftovers for healthy lunches.

That is a good idea shelter_pets I am going to try that and see if it works. I don't know why I didn't think of the binder and going to the library I used to do that when we were newly married.

We are using weight watcher recipes. My husband likes them and they are pretty easy to find and follow.

Here's my plan:

I get the ww cookbooks from library. My husband tags the ones he'll try and then I copy them or I search them on the internet.

I bought a 3 inch binder from amazon and I put the recipes in sheet protectors so the pages don't get ruined when I am cooking.

I love the 3 inch binder. It is huge and has pockets in the front so I stick our receipts so we can see how much $$$ we are spending.

I like the binder because I don't just stick in a drawer or a cupboard, I keep it out on the counter. NO excuses.

I put the weight watchers standard grocery list in a sheet protector in the front of the binder. When I go to the grocery store I use a dry erase marker to cross off the items.

WW grocery list: www.weightwatchers.com/images
/1033/dyn
amic/GCMSImages/shoppinglist.pdf


With the sheet protectors, I can write in a dry erase marker the day that I will fix that meal. I put it in the binder for the order of the week. I look at it the night before after walking on treadmill and lay out my ingredients for the next day.

I LOVE dry erase and sheet protectors.

I am terrible with meal planning whenever I try to plan a meal in advance it usually doesn't get eaten for a couple of days. We always end up wanting something different. My husband and I are the meat eaters my son is vegetarian and my baby is quite picky. Mealtime are really challenging for me from day to day.

Still keeping target goals in sight. The train is not going off the track yet. Only losing 1 lb a week. And that is frustrating.

I like this. I also do the bulk of my shopping once a month. Seems I still go to market once a week for milk and veggies. I like the idea of having all meals for the month planned. I also use the mix and match approach to daily meals. This uses all in the pantry and freezer each month

In for the long haul

I do 95% of my grocery shopping once a month. I keep a running list of things during the month for my list. I do a month of menus and then do mix and match just so we use all of them. Each month I can ad more if I find a recipe I want to try or delete something that I find we do not like. Wenever eat out and do not use a lot of convenience foods. It takes a little more effort but I feel that is beneficial especially since hubby is going through chemo. I can always choose one of the days menus that he really likes when his appetite. is poor.

I was always a planner and shopped for a week at a time. However, now it's just my SO and I. I've always tried to keep fruits and such around but he'll buy ice cream and such, even knowing I am trying to watch myself as I have very little will power right now. I feel sabatoged. Anyway, for the past couple years, my work schedule is nasty..I am up at 4:30 am to be at work by 6 am and I will be there until anywhere from 6:30 - 9pm....I never know ahead as we have to stay until what's due out that day is gone. Therefore I pretty much have to brown bsg 2 meals and then cook/clean before bed. I have little time to prep for dinner and most dsys are lucky if I manage to pack 2 meals and the more prepping, the less sleep I get! I would so love a 7-8 hr night's rest! I also work about 6-8 hrs on Sat, so I have about 1 1/4 days to do housecleaning, laundry, bill pay, play with the dogs, shop, etc.so cooking all day Sunday idn't an option. I need a genie!

Today is a new day. I can't change yesterday or know what tomorrow will bring. I can only control right here, right now.

We plan meals based off what is in the sales ad and what we have. We shop on a budget but I do have a semi stocked pantry and freezer that has some meat in it already. We buy family packs so we split that up for the freezer.

I know what we eat and how we eat, so I may use more flour this week but will wait till it is on sale to buy it since I know it goes on sale every 3 - 4 weeks. Same with other items.

Breakfasts are not to planned. SO eats yogurt only for breakfast. *shrugs* He is not the one with a weight issue, so more power to him. The kids get a grain item, some sort of egg, dairy, and fruit with breakfast. Sometimes egg is replaced with sausage, but I have a child with bad acid reflux and fatty sausage can make that worse. So it depends on how under control his acid is and what the rest of the days meals are like. I do admit that once a week (or every other week) I make large batches of waffles and pancakes and freeze them. I also sometimes make banana muffins and freeze them as well.

I always have a rice, Quinoa, potato, or pasta as a side for dinner. A meat or bean, and 2 vegetables.

Lunches are sandwiches for the kids, with a fruit, a vegetable, and a dairy.

My SO is not a fan of soups.He does like chili though. As a result, the kids see daddy not eating soup so they do not want to either. *sighs* I do still make soup or a chili once every other week or sometimes once a week during the winter months. I love making a simple Gazpacho during the summer for us (minus the one child).

Depending on what my week looks like will depend on what I make that week too. I do not want something like homemade pizza, lasagna, and so on on busy weeks. They take longer to make. Busy weeks I make things in the crock pot because I can just dump and cook. When I had many busy or tired weeks ahead (Like end of pregnancy and coming home with my newborn) I made many complete freezer meals. Most were crockpot or oven only. Some included rice. I have a rice cooker so that is still just a dump and ignore.

I am very lucky. I just retired and my daughter's family live with me so I get to do some creative things. I plan a week in advance. Dinner is our meal together. Everyone makes their own breakfast.
I plan a protein, 2 vegetables (one green, one yellow or red) and a fruit salad for dessert.
Every week is two day poultry, two days fish, one day vegetarian, one day soup and one day red meat.
One day is something new. I try to do something from another culture or ethnic cuisine.
I am having a lot of fun with my meal planning and new retirement.

I have a hard time planning for meals. I could have anywhere from 2 to 10 people to make meals for at any time. I really don't know how to pre-plan my meals. Lunches are simpler. Most of the the time there is only me and my grandson. Today I made bacon and tomato sandwiches and had spinach on the side. Have any ideas on how to plan when you don't know how many to cook for.

I really enjoy cooking for just two. Sometimes my DH doesn't care for my more healthful recipes :) so I just freeze the extra portions and enjoy them later. I am trying to make at least two days a week vegetarian and am experimenting with spices more. I like to buy at the health stores where I can purchase a spoonful to try.

Thank you sparkbjok. I got bogged down in weight loss process. I have backed off and looking at food in a new light. Back to thinking of food with excitement instead of just a chore. Thanks again for the encouragement. emoticon

It's more difficult cooking for two than for the family. I try to plan ahead and to try new recipes - maybe some I would have never cooked for the kids. I think it's a matter of getting back into the habit. Think small and plan just a couple meals a week (and enjoy the leftovers or freeze meals for those days of not planning). Good luck.

I could use some encouragement. I have done meal planning for roughly 20 something years. The kids are grown and it is now hubby and I. When meal time comes around, I am not in the mood for whatever was planned. When kids were home, I had no time to second guess. I just followed the plan and it worked wonderfully. It was always nutritious, easy, and just a system so I never had to plan. I just rotated monthly meals with weekly grocery list. I kept a running inventory of pantry/freezers so never had to do any prep work for system to work. Now I try to do that and it fails miserably. Why can't I do it anymore? I appreciate any help. emoticon

I also check what's on hand. Have you checked out the weekly meal planner under articles and videos, nutrition. Not the pull down, there is a weekly swap out the recipe plan. I've started using it and it's great.

I will do this!

I start by looking at what I have on hand, then check the weekly ads to see what I can buy to enhance the menu. I also subscribe to bountifulbaskets.com It's free to join and you can get fresh produce at a lower price than from grocery stores. Orders can be picked-up every other week. Check out their web site for your area.

IMEMINE1 - I like your idea of checking on what's on hand before planning for the next week's menu. I, like you, used to do a much better job of planning ahead than I have lately. Thank you for the idea and the "nudge" I needed to get back to menu planning!

I am going to see what I have on hand first, (freezer, pantry, etc and plan a weeks worth from there.
When we were first married (100 years or so ago LOL) I saved money planning a weeks worth of meals. That has changed over the years and with hit and miss eating we shop and don't use up what we have because we don't plan.
I think this is a good thing to start again and probably a lot healthier.

I rely on a meal planning service, Emeals. You may have seen an ad for them on SP. I've used Emeals for almost 3 years now. There are weeks where meals are 100% Emeals and others where nothing seemed to fit (time, resources, tastes) but overall, I would give this service very high marks. We are currently subscribed to the Simple Gourmet plan but you will see portion control menus as well as gluten free, paleo, etc.

My guy is lactose intolerant and I've had to learn to cook for him. Actually it's made my meals healthier cause I like us to eat together. I made up a batch of chicken broccoli casserole. I make the cream of mushroom from scratch with almond milk and natures balance. No cheese, it really cuts out a ton of fat and calories by eliminating a few simple ingredients. I try to make enough to last a couple days for my lunch and sometimes again for dinner. I like to eat what I'm in the mood for so I don't plan to far ahead. If it lasts 2 days I'm done and want something new anyway. Keep food fun and simple and then you don't feel so much like you are missing something.

I have made up 3x5 cards for my husband with meats (chicken, pork, turkey, lean beef) and with veggie choices and with side dishes. He picks out one of each the night before.

With the exception of the Turkey all the meat is grilled on our Foreman. The turkey is made into a meatloaf.

This works out really well for us

I like to keep things very simple and cost effective. I use limited ingredience and spices in a variety of ways. I also have my go to foods that satisfy me and are quick alternatives than fast food or junk. I always have Greek yogurt, frozen fruit and almond milk on hand to have a healthy smoothie if I'm in a hurry, need a icy treat or just want something simple and comforting.
Then I have veggies and rice and olive oil, beans and spices that can be used in a variety of ways but supply my nutritional needs.

Skinny taste better than butter!

I have a husband who doesn't always eat at the same time I want or need too; so I cook what I want to eat and make sure there's enough for him too. Then he can reheat whenever he's ready to eat.

As far as meal planning, I don't have anything written down; however, I do want that to change and I've read some interesting articles on planning, shopping, etc. Plus I've got my coupons ready so it'll be interesting to see how that goes!

The food tracker has been one of my favorite things about SparkPeople. When I first started using it, I was amazed at how little I realized what exactly I was eating. It has made all the difference for me. I haven't tried pre-planning my meals with it yet, maybe I will give that a try.

My DH is a picky eater but i have decided that i will not use this as an excuse to not eat well myself. He did not give me any ideas about want he wanted for suppers this week, so i came up with 4 choices w both like and have ingredients for. Then i came up with a plan B column, again with things i already have in stock.

I have no excuses to not eat healthy suppers this week.

Does anyone have suggestions for meal planning for families who rarely eat together? I have 2 high-schoolers at home and a husband with variable work hours. Sometimes we have all 4 of us for dinner, and other times it's just me.

I also need to eat low-carb and low-sodium and I have Crohn's so I cannot eat too many veggies.

Lunches are a bit of a challenge, but dinners are even harder to plan! I am looking for meals that can be frozen and/or reheated easily. I probably need some meals that are quick to make, but have the time for longer recipes most days. I recently bought a food processor, and a KitchenAid stand mixer to make things easier to make.

I am using the Living Cookbook program which has a meal calendar. It also allows you to add recipes to your shopping list. This helps get me somewhat organized, but I still need to plan better.

Thanks in advance for any help! I am losing my mind by flying by the seat of my pants when it comes to planning and being organized!!

I also preplan and then just change anything if there are changes in my diet for the day. I usually do it the first thing in the morning over coffee. However it's done, it's the tracking that makes all the difference in the world.

Like a lot of you, I like to pre-plan on my tracker. I usually do this the night before. Then if I eat anything differently I go in and update the tracker for that day. I find that keeps me focused on what I am doing.

I cook in bulk, place in snack bags and freeze. I have brown rice, wild rice, Jasmine and Balsmati quinoa, millet and amarth. (sp) in the freezer. I cook beans all kinds and do the same. Swiss chard, kale, cabbage. I pre cook and place in freezer bags in the freezer. When the menu says spinach I use kale or swiss chard. Brown rice I use wild rice. These are my staples; all that's needed is onion, garlic etc., some spices, sour cream or yogurt. I find a plain yogurt mixed with spices or flavored yogurt over hot rice. With beans mixed with garlic and onion. Throw in a green veggie with carrots. volia!

Lots of good idea here! I am trying something different this week. Yesterday, I made a pan of spinach lasagna, today I am making baby back ribs and turkey breast in my crock pots. I am putting everything in individual portions and freezing them. That way dinner I can enjoy home cooking during the week without all the fuss.

I try to have a vegetable, fruit, carb and protein in the meals. i just use different cookbooks i have and sometimes slash calories on some so it fits into our diet. I like using the healthy recipes from Taste of Home's magazine or the Comfort Food Diet Cookbooks as well as Sparks and ones online. We have ones we use regularly sometimes like the Black Bean Burgers With Lime from Chef Meg or Tofu Broccoli Enchiladas from a vegetarian cookbook.

I use the meal plan as a guideline. I find it has too many variety of foods per meal. I use
2 veggies, protein, starch or dairy.

My salt intake is horrible, I'm to consume up to 1500 grans of sodium. I reached my caloric value 2 days this week YEAH! emoticon

I usually plan the menu for a week at a time. But i cannot vary food too much cause of being on a food card. So I plan to have things last for 2 or three meals instead. Sometimes i use tofu or canned tuna or salmon or black bleans for a meal if the money is tight.

Pat yourself on the back for getting the workout done. What time you did it was not the important thing. Put your grocery list in your purse or tape it to the dash board of your car so it is infront of you as a reminder. Baby steps. count the ones that take you forward!

Pre-plan meals using the Food Tracker. It counts your nutrients and calories, so that you can make adjustments ahead of time.

I plan my meals and shop a week at a time using a calendar that I print off and put on the fridge. I cook every night. I start by asking my family what they want. Then I look for healthy recipes to accommodate them. When they have no ideas, I see what is in the freezer and build around that using healthy recipes. Sometimes I look at other weeks where they really said they enjoyed something. I really try to build variety into the menu. If we have chicken one day I will do turkey or fish the next always looking and adapting healthy recipes.

I will need to check into the menu planning websites online. Thanks for the tips.

I've invested in a subscription to a meal planning service before and think that is what I will be trying again. The two I like are Emeals and No More To Go. Emeals has flexibility in that there are a variety if plans (low fat, low carb, paelo, portion control, by store, for a family or for two). They also have healthy lunch and breakfast opens. It works out to about $5 per month. NMTG is much simpler but the recipes are delicious and family friendly with notes for modifications.

Both services provide menus, recipes with easy to follow instructions and grocery lists. In fact, I am headed out now to purchase groceries for the week ahead using the Simple Gourmet plan from Emeals.

I made a meal plan for 5 days (following the 5 day inferno for Turbofire), but I didn't stick strictly to it. Depended on what people at work were having at an organized meal/meeting, or when I went out one night with my bf. I haven't even thought of what I want to eat next week. I feel so lazy. I should have gone grocery shopping today ,but did not. It took me all morning and part of the afternoon to actually do my workout even though I put on my workout clothes first thing this morning. I wish I could get my routine down better. Any ideas/encouragement would be appreciated.

Andrea, can you tell me how to find the menu planner on pinterest please? I desperately need to start doing some meal planning that is fairly simple, but good. I end up overboard on my calories almost every day even though I try to eat healthy. Thanks.

I planned all my meals this week starting on Sunday. I purchased all of the fruits and veggies I needed for the week and this week has gone really well for me. I have incorporated bell peppers, squash, onions, spinach and fruit. I have noticed that if I have it, I will eat it and I do not run the risk of going to the vending machine at work.

I try to buy ahead for the week when it comes to fruits, veggies, and snacks but my husband has a tendency to eat it all if it's in sight. If he doesn't see something he's fine but if he spots an item he tends to eat it until it's gone (all in one or two settings)!

I plan in advance and what I prepare depends upon two things.
One depends upon what I have in the pantry and fridge and then what is on sale.

Sometimes I plan out my meals and snacks by the week, but most often I plan them out the night before. I try to vary what I eat so that I don't get bored. My example, if I just had oatmeal for breakfast, I won't eat it again for a few days. Instead, I'll have eggs or, really, anything besides the oatmeal again. I also vary how I eat lunch. One day I'll have a wrap, the next day a pita pocket and then a sandwich (all with different fillings and lots of veggies). I also participate in Meatless Mondays, so that is a good challenge for me to find and make meatless recipes. emoticon

I love to have multiple use prepared foods on hand all the time.
It doesn't take any extra time to make a bigger amount of a recipe and saves lots of time and money.

I am not much of a menu planner preferring to be more spontaneous but that seems to work for me because I have a well stocked pantry and freezer. We grow our own veggies, can and dry food, and buy or barter sides of organic meat, local organic chicken and local seafood. I am a porridge girl for breakfasts and usually cook it with flax and frozen blueberries or mixed fruit and then lunches are usually simple because they are dinner leftovers or raw veggies, rice cakes or toast and cheese or a quick black bean soup. I work from home which is why this is easy when I'm not on the road.
Snacks...I'm a fan of almonds, sunflower seeds and walnuts so usually find a way to add a few of these that have been toasted with yogout and fruit.
I am having fun experimenting with the SPARK recipes but usually end up wit a recipe makeover because I haven't preplanned and need to make do with what I have on hand :)
With this challenge I have been preplanning my menus but find I end up changing items as I go when it hasn't quite worked out. It's a good exercise!

The way that I do the weekly planning, as painless as possible, is as follow:
a) Firstly I have a list of combos for the week like fish, poultry, meat; or poultry, meat, soup; etc.
b) I repeat each of the meals, at least 4 times per week: 3x4=12. I add one salad for one meal and a CHEAT MEAL for the 14th meal.
c) In a week calendar (in a piece of paper or a table in word processor), I write my personal favorite recipes from my SP recipe collection for each of the meal, for example: Chicken and Veggies soup, Broiled Fish, and Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry.
d) I do the same for the breakfast. Personally, because I have a goal of having a green smoothie everyday, I repeat the green smoothie 7 times.
e) For the snack, I choose 1 or 2 per week, and I repeat them several times a week.

This list is very fast to do.
f) Now you're going to enter the items in the Spark People weekly planner: Tracking, Nutrition , Tracker Options, Do not show meal plans; you can use the option of copy foods from one day to another or from lunch to dinner, etc.
g) You generate and print the weekly grocery shopping list.
h) You can copy all the recipes you are using in the weekly planner to a page in the word processor.And print.

Now is time to act.
i) Take the shopping list, check what you already have and what you need to buy.
i) You have your print of the menu and recipes needed to cook.
VOILA!

I have that cookbook also and I love it. One of the recipes I like the most is the Southwestern chicken, which I adapted and make at least once a month. You may check my makeover out as Crus-tless Chicken Pie.

Good idea - I hadn't thought to find anything on Pinterest like a menu board of course I'm still trying to figure things out there and am a little confused. Now I'll go look specifically for the menu board, that may help me figure out how it works. Getting your pantry organized is a great idea - I need to get mine organizied and make sure to use that stuff up too.

Slow but sure is the way to go.

The meals I'll be cooking the rest of the week:
-Pineapple-veggie-cashew or peanut-noodle stir fry. Can't decide yet if I'm going to make a peanut, oyster, or terriyaki based sauce.
-Chicken (haven't decided if I'll broil or poach) with Gates BBQ sauce for dipping and collard greens.
-Lentil soup

Potential snacks or sides for leftovers:
-Avocado with lime juice, salt, and pepper
-Sauteed mushrooms (I never use oil or butter).
-oranges, bananas, kiwi, and blueberries
-Cheerios
-Oatmeal

-Jennifer

One the things I do is not purchase anything that would be what I call contraband.
I know the foods that trigger my over eating and avoid them as much as possible.
If the tempting binge foods are not in the house they are less likely to get in my mouth.

Like many of you have said, I too start my meal planning by peeking in the pantry, fridge and freezer, seeing what needs to be used up first.

Then I take ten minutes or so review the grocery and drug store flyers to see what's on sale.

Then, since we tend to use the same basic "ingredients" and a regular rotation of versatile "recipes" (ie: chicken in the crockpot for both dinner and "planned overs") over and over again I'll just quickly note what I plan to serve for dinner for the next 7-10 days.

My biggest hurdle right now is finding healthy lunches and snacks.

Leftovers tend to go into wraps, omelets, soups, and on pizza.

Many veggies are flash frozen at the time of picking and actually retain more nutrients than fresh produce that has traveled and sat in the market for any considerable length of time. Frozen fruits and veggies are excellent choices according to most sources I have consulted. They are friendly on the budget as well. :)

I am using the spark menu planner to plan weekly. It's time consumming especially since I cook for one so many of the recipes have to planned for a couple of nights and the rest frozen for another week. Though it is taking time to plan I believe having these meals ahead in the freezer will save me time down the road and even in my planning because I won't have to serarch out the recipes for those nights that I take out a frozen meal. I choose many of my recipes from the spark recipe site and am enjoying them. I also like how the planner creates a grocery list for me for the items I will need for what I planned. I keep learning more and more about the resources Spark has.

SYZYGY5 I feel if you can do fresh veggies, that is better than frozen. I was once told (a bunch of times) the healthiest foods to shop for at a grocery store is all on the outer perimeters of the store (this is not where the frozen foods are). In response to your dislike and discomfort to prepping the veggies...many fresh veggies are now prepped and cut for you. they may cost a little more, but they are ready to go. I have seen this with broccoli, carrots, squash, green beans, brussel sprouts, mushrooms, etc. I recommend going to the store and just spending some time in the produce section, You'll find there are a lot of veggies that the work is already done. Some of them, you can steam right in the bag! Just look for the info on the label, the "steam in bag" ones are marked. The rest you simply open, dump into a strainer and rinse...and Voila! they are ready to be cooked! Good luck!

Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending. ~Author Unknown
