  4. Nutrition Tip: Before you start looking through recipes, decide ahead of time how many days per week you'll eat chicken, fish, meat, or vegetarian meals.

    If you're going to eat chicken 3x/week for 4 weeks per month, you'll need 12 different chicken recipes if you don't want to repeat meals. Alternatively, you might pick 6 chicken recipes and repeat each one twice. Get the idea?!

  6. Make a grocery list either:
    • weekly
    • for the entire month
    (Download a super cute blank grocery list!)

  8. At the end of the month, staple your monthly meal calendar to the accompanying grocery list(s) and file.
