Make or print a calendar with big blocks where you can write. Put the dates starting from the first date of the month.

Before you fill out anything, make sure to mark the holidays, anniversaries or birthdays. You have to make the meal extra special for those days.
3. Check the recipes
There are a lot of recipes available. You can even find thousands of it through the internet. You just have to make sure that you are looking at those healthy recipes. You must remember that the food you will prepare is for you family. Make sure they can get enough nutrients.

When you plan the meal for the whole month, make sure that it is balanced with the essential nutrients that everybody needs. You cannot just put all meat for one entire week. You can try to alternate the dishes. It is better if you can ensure that every meal will have protein, vegetables, and fruits.
