When you think of summer cooking, what comes to mind? Grilling, of course, but also fresh, seasonal produce like juicy tomatoes and sweet corn, or maybe vibrant berries and crisp zucchini. Using seasonal ingredients is the perfect way to celebrate summer cooking and a stealthy way to crush your summer wellness goals. Whether it's getting your family to eat more fruits and vegetables, cutting back on processed foods, or just learning to meal plan without the chaos of school schedules.


If you're looking for a way to achieve those summer goals, our Meal Planner 360 insert is a game-changer. Designed to slot seamlessly into your inkWELL Press disc planner, this versatile insert gives you a designated space to plan out your meals, create shopping lists, and stay on top of your healthy eating habits.


What is the Meal Planner insert?


Our Meal Planner insert pack contains 52 non-dated sheets so you can use them anytime! One side features a Weekly Meal Plan layout with room for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for every day of the week and a star rating section for how you enjoyed each day's meals. Space for weekly snacks and notes is included. The other side is a categorized Grocery List—an easy but brilliant way to write items by where you find them in the grocery store.


You could take your planner to the grocery store, but the insert pages are so easy to remove that you can pop out a page and bring it along in your purse. There are no shredded edges like in a notebook or spiral-bound planner—it's neat and tidy.


Here's how to use the Meal Planner 360 to achieve your summer goals:


Meal Planning for Healthier Eating:


The meal-planning side features spaces to jot down your entire week's breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack plans. This allows you to plan each Meal out in advance, get a bird's-eye view of your meals, and ensure you maintain a balanced, nutritious diet. If you meal plan on Sunday, you can fill out the week to the following Sunday.


Start by taking stock of your summer health goals. Are you trying to increase your veggie intake or reduce your reliance on processed foods? Use those objectives to guide your weekly meal planning. Fill the Meal Planner 360 with wholesome, seasonal recipes that will fuel your body and keep you feeling energized.


Make Grocery Lists (and Shopping) a Breeze:


After you've mapped out your weekly meals, you can quickly transfer those ingredients to the shopping list, ensuring you don't forget anything when you hit the grocery store.


The category-style list helps you stay organized and efficient as you navigate the aisles and prevents the temptation to impulse-buy unhealthy items.


Involve the Family:


If you have kids, the Meal Planner 360 is a fantastic way to get them involved in meal planning and preparation. Dedicate a section to their favorite healthy recipes and have them help you fill out the weekly plan. They'll feel ownership over the process and may be more inclined to eat the nutritious meals you've prepared.


You can also use the insert to track which veggies your kids have tried and which ones they enjoyed. Keeping this record will help you identify new ways to incorporate more produce into your family's diet.


Whether your summer goals involve increased veggie intake, a healthier relationship with food, or mastering the art of meal planning, the Meal Planner 360 insert can be a valuable tool in your wellness routine. Get ready to make significant progress towards your nutrition objectives – and enjoy the sunshine while you can!
