Free Weekly Meal Planner
Nutrition can be a complicated topic because, depending on whom you ask, you can get contradictory information about the most nutritious way to eat. For example, one diet says to eat low carb and high protein while the next says to eat high plant-based carb and low protein.* While this overload of information can feel overwhelming, there is one thing all the experts agree on: the surest way to achieve positive results and make healthier choices is to plan ahead for your meals.

As you make your weekly meal plan, consider finding places where you can incorporate meal-prepping (cooking in bulk to have leftovers for later) and always keep your macro nutrients in mind:
- Are you getting a variety of protein? Be creative! There are so many different sources of protein beyond just meat.
- Are you eating a colorful array of veggies? If your kids aren’t veggie lovers, you can find sneaky ways to work veggies into other dishes.
- Are you getting good carbs that match the amount of energy you or your family is expending? Food is fuel, so healthy food choices are key to fuel a healthy, happy homeschool!
*Intentional food choices are an important part of nutrition. We recommend consulting your doctor or a registered nutritionist to work out the details of what diet works best for you and your family.
