Get out of your dinner rut with our themed meal plans. Start the year off with an easy meal plan rotation to help you get dinner on the table. Choosing a daily theme makes meal planning both fun and easy to create in 2015.

Pick Your Theme & Recipes

Pick Your Theme

First, start by picking your daily themes. Keep the names fun and memorable for each day of the week.

Next, gather your recipes. Organize them both online and with your printed recipes.

  • You can create a Pinterest board for each category and then pin recipes when you are online.
  • Label a file folder for each day and place recipes you find in magazines or print out.

Each week fill in the recipes for each night and make your grocery list. To get you started here is a week’s worth of inspiration and recipes.
