Autumn Monthly Meal Plan

The cold is setting in quickly into this part of the world and I don’t know about you but I’m all about comforting warming dishes this time of year! I love a good slow cooker recipe or pressure cooked stew.

Check out the video below for a look at our September monthly haul and the cosy four week meal plan is at the end of the video. It is also written at the bottom of this page for you.

I hope you find some inspiration for your own family meals, love Angie x

Aug – Family Breakfast Ideas

We are still in August but to be honest it feels more like September with the colder temperatures and rain we have been having. Below you will find my ‘week of breakfasts’ video which I created from our weekly breakfast meal plan.

We decide on 5 breakfasts for Monday to Friday and repeat those throughout the month. This way I find we eat more variety (yes more!) and we are prepared for breakfast in the morning. Meal planning also helps a lot with budgeting and meal planning and has helped us stick within our budget and even save money from it too.

Click the video below to watch our week of breakfasts in August, I hope you find some ideas for your own family:

Monday – Peanut butter bagels with bananas

Tuesday – French toast sticks with berry topping

Wednesday – Granola and yogurt bowls with fresh fruit

Thursday – Omlette with spinach and cheese

Friday – Granola with almond milk and fruit

With Love
