June’s Monthly Family Meal Plan

Processed with VSCO with  preset
This is the third month of monthly meal planning, and although I was a few days late making this months plan {meaning three days of winging meal times yikes!} I’m really enjoying planning ahead for a whole month at once still. You can see the plans for April and May if you like too. Having a whole month of meals planned out makes it so much easier to get a variety of meals in and saves me a job each week of doing a weekly plan. I usually sit down with all the kiddos to fill our plan in – letting everyone add some suggestions in for meals they would like, or sides to go with meals we’re having means everyone is {in theory} happy.

As I’ve mentioned before –  I eat vegan, Lola and Baya are vegetarian, while Beastie and Kiki do eat a little meat – though at home I mainly cook veggie options for ease. I look for meals that are easily adaptable or suitable for all of us. For example – Kiki’s request this month is Macaroni Cheese which I can easily make with a vegan cheese sauce, or make separate portions {though she is off dairy right now as we think she may be lactose intolerant}. It’s really not difficult to cater to suit slightly different needs/tastes of all of us. I usually cook 3 or 4 vegetables to go with meals, meaning there is something everyone likes and they can pick and choose which they want, or I’ll make a deconstructed salad so again they can build their own at the table. When we have meals like breakfast for dinner [holy nom} or scramble – I’ll make the kids scrambled eggs and I have scrambled tofu instead.

We do eat as a family together every night around the table, it’s one of those things I think is really important – all gathering together and discussing our days and enjoying a meal.  Busy life means there is not always all five of us there every single night – Baya eats later three nights a week due to her gymnastics schedule, and when it’s brownie and guide night we seem to eat in several sittings, but whoever is home eats together!

So – here is what we’ll be eating this month {minues the first couple of days I didn’t get around to planning!}

    Great plan. It seems like you’ve carefully considered the Summer season while planning these items. I’ve been eating cookies and muffins since the beginning of this month :)
