How To Meal Plan In A Bullet Journal

Okay, so meal planning isn’t as difficult as it may seem especially with knowing that you have to come up with so many ideas for the entire month or week. 

The best way to meal plan for an entire month is to separate it into four weeks and try completing one week at a time before you move on to the next.

Also, with meal planning, if you’re just starting out on a new diet plan, this is a great way to stay focused and follow through with completing a diet. 

You’ll then want to choose a layout from the ideas you’ll see in a bit. Depending on the type of meal planning layout you decide to use, this will give you a good idea and way to make changes to it as you plan your own in a bullet journal.

And lastly, we have this cute meal planning spread with an adorable quote on the top.

Tip: Using inspiration quotes in your bullet journal is a great way to make it look fancier in general!

Meal planning is incredibly useful if you want to save time and make sure you eat well every day and having meal planning spreads in a bullet journal is fantastic if you’re always using your journal for other things as well. 

One thing to remember when meal planning is that you don’t have to plan an entire month’s worth of meals in one day but you can make improvements as you go along.

Just choose one that works for you and a spread that will fit your lifestyle.

So, are you currently using any meal planning spreads in your bullet journal or will you be trying one soon?
