Using Pinterest For Meal Planning

Meal planning can be tough especially if you’re so use to cooking from a box. When I decided to do a menu I had no idea what I was going to cook. When we turned to eating healthier, we went to mostly all chicken. Normal way to cook our chicken was little seasonings and bake it in the oven. We then would add a side and some veggies.

Eating the same thing, the same way over and over again can get a bit boring. So this month I wanted to switch things up on my family. I wanted to bring new meals to the table that were still tasty and a bit more healthier for us.

What better way to make a menu by hitting up the one and only Pinterest!

As I browsed all the yummy photos to find different meals to cook, by tummy started talking to me, but in the end it was so worth it. I had a menu and I had a shopping list, only thing left was going to the store. I found I spent less when I had more of an idea of what I was going to be making through-out the month.

As you can see, you can find so many different meal ideas, that will put something different on the table all month long! One thing I like about using pinterest, is everything is right there, no having to search Google to find something good. I have hundreds of ideas right in one place. Plus, I get to find great blogs that I have never seen before then.

  1. I use Pinterest to plan meals all the time! I even have a second food board for “Things I’ve Tried” which I detail how things turned out. If they were tasty, and changes I made or would make in the future, etc. I think it’s a great idea!!

      Great idea! So far we have found pinterest to be a great success only one thing we have made that didn’t turn out like we were expecting, but I think that has to do with the fact my crockpot cooks a bit faster.
