So I love food, I love to cook, and I love easy but amazing. So I’m pretty sure that’s why I love a simple meal plan. You can get a few ingredients for the whole week that makes you multiple meals. And the best part? You can prep them ahead of time so throwing a dinner together is quick and easy.

Now when I saw this meal plan (from Buzzfeed), you can imagine (or probably not) how glad I was. There are nights that I love making complex meals and seeing the awesome outcome of what I’ve created. But then there are nights where I’ve been working a little too hard and need something simple. So that’s why I’m going to tell you why this meal plan rocks.

Oh, and I’ll also be giving you some bonus finds on great meal planning tips and healthy snacks that you can prep.

Inexpensive But Awesome

When I took a look at the ingredients, I knew this would be a money saving meal plan. They were all great ingredients that wouldn’t cost me a fortune at the grocery store. Pairing this with my hacks on saving money with groceries, and I knew this was going to turn out good.

Simple But Not Boring

It feels like whenever I look at people’s weekly (or monthly) meal plans, they look average at best. And this ends up making the creative side of me cringe. Yes they’re simple and budget friendly, but they don’t look that great. So when I saw the recipes, I was pleasantly surprised. They all looked awesome and like something that wouldn’t last more than a minute on my plate. I mean just look at them!

I am all about no hassle, and all of these meals (or just the ingredients) are easy to make ahead. So if you know Monday night is going to be crazy, then you’re prepared; no frozen pizzas for you.

So many things can be cooking at the same time (rice cooking in rice cooker or pot, veggies roasting in oven, pork in the slow cooker, broccoli in the microwave, etc.) And if your house includes you plus more, than this meal plan can be easily doubled.
