Check your boards!

Step 1 is pretty simple. Go to your main recipe board or if you have multiple, decide what food theme you’re going for on certain nights (ie: chicken, beef, healthy recipes, etc). You already pinned these, so now it’s time to try them! This is a fun way to try new recipes too.

Choose your recipe and write it down!How to meal plan using Pinterest step 2

This part is easy – simply click the recipe you’re interested in making. Write this down using your meal plan printable on the day you want to make it. Keep in mind what you have that day. Don’t plan to make an hour long recipe, when you have an hour-long window in between your schedule! Think about prep, cooking, and the time it takes to eat it!

Write down what you don’t have at home on your grocery list worksheet (or if you use an app on your phone, add it there). What I like to do is write all the ingredients down for the week, then I categorize my list by order in the grocery store. That way all the veggies are together and I can customize it to the layout of the grocery store to save time.

That’s it! I hope my system not only saves you time but spices up your recipe routine too. This is a fun way to try out new recipes.
