Bi-Weekly Meal Plan for September 16–29

Welcome to The Better Mom’s bi-weekly meal planning schedule!

Homemade-KIND-Bar-Recipes-Grain-Free

Featured Recipe: We’re huge fans of KIND Fruit & Nut Bars, but at $1.50 per bar, the price can be a real budget buster. That’s why I’m so excited to share my homemade version that not only tastes great, but costs far less and allows you to customize the bars to your own personal taste preferences – including a nut-free version for those with nut-allergies. YUM!

As women striving to serve the Lord and our families better, meal planning is a wonderful strategy to help you provide a healthy,
 home-cooked meal with the awesome added benefit
 of saving time, money and stress!

In addition to the two meal plan charts below, is a list of links to many of the recipes featured.
 Our hope is that this will be a great resource
 and encouragement for you whether you’re just getting started with meal planning, or are a seasoned expert.

We’d also like to provide you with a free meal planning template perfect for creating your own weekly meal plans. Select from the following two options:
• Meal plan template PDF

• Meal plan template EXCEL

    That took a lifetime to plug into my Plan to Eat, but I think it’ll be worth it! I’m so excited to find your meal plans and your blog in general!

      Not at this time, due to the enormous amount of time required to do so. However you can use online services like Ziplist to save recipes and create shopping lists, or paid services such as Plan to Eat which also allows you to create shopping lists based on recipes found online.
