Remember the Pepper’s Planning to Eat posts? Well I think I may try combining them with my Mamavation Monday posts. Menu planning is a constant struggle for me, but it is getting easier. Now that life should be getting back into a routine it should be even easier!

Is Menu Planning a Struggle for You Too?

I do have a planning system that works for me. I have even written about it hear on Pepper Scraps: How to Menu Plan in 10 Easy Steps! I try and have a day each week that I work on my menu plan and go grocery shopping. This last summer month has been so busy that one of my goals this month is to get back into the menu planning routine.

I also have an awesome tool that helps me so much! Plan to Eat is great because you get a tool that makes them just like Pinterest but for recipes. You click a bookmarklet and it enters the recipe right into your recipe book on Plan to Eat. Then you are able to drag and drop recipes on your calendar which I love because if something happens during the week I can switch around some of my meals to accommodate. If you want to learn more about Plan to Eat check out my full post about them: Pepper’s Planning to Eat.

Hi I'm Pepper. My family and I are sharing pieces of our lives.
We hope to inspire you by showing that even small changes can make the biggest differences in your life. You don't have to go to extremes to become healthy. Just do it one habit, one meal, one walk, and one hug at a time.

Let's work together one piece at a time making better habits, eating healthier, getting moving, and most of all loving our families.
