March Meal Plan

Yep, March is starting out about right. A snow/rain/sleet storm across the northern south and Mid-Atlantic and we can hear March rooaaaaarrrrrr. Alas, as we await the lamb’s calm purr (what? It sounds better than “baa”) it helps to have at least one huge thing to worry about: a family meal plan. This menu will help your family eat a strong variety of meals all month, and help you feel prepared and organized. Meal plan right, and you’ll never have to stress out your dinner plans as 4:30 rolls around.

March meal plan. One month of family dinners, planned. A monthly menu of healthy dinners for the family.

If you’re new to meal planning, then check out my how to meal plan post which will give you the basic instructions on how to organize your week and get started. Of course, here at Julieverse, I make it easy for you. Each week, I repost the monthly plans, highlighting 5-7 well-rounded, family-friendly meals for you to fit into your plan. Once you get into the habit of planning, you’ll find yourself less stressed, spending less money and having to go to the store only once a week.
