Jesinta Franklin reveals her weekly no-fuss meal plan

She’s a doting mother to two young children shared with AFL star husband Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin. 

And model Jesinta Franklin revealed to her Instagram fans on Sunday that she’s trying out a meal plan for the first time to see whether it helps with the ‘week run’. 

The 30-year-old’s weekly dinners are not as strict as you may think, with a healthy balance of lean protein, good carbohydrates and steamed vegetables.

Jesinta shared a screenshot of a memo from her iPhone, where she listed dinners for the week ahead starting with a fish curry and turmeric rice for Monday night’s meal.

Tuesday is a shepherd’s pie with salad, Wednesday is chicken stir-fry with kelp (a type of seaweed) noodles, and Thursday is a pasta with ‘sneaky’ mince meat.

Friday’s dinner consists of lamb cutlets with potato mash and steamed greens, followed by lamb shanks and sweet potato mash on Saturday, and a soup on Sunday.

The romance is well and truly alive in their marriage, with Buddy having surprised Jesinta this month by bringing home a huge bunch of stunning cherry blossoms.   

Buddy, who is set to celebrate their wedding anniversary next month, got frank earlier this year when he discussed their marriage and fatherhood in an interview with Daily Mail Australia. 

Discussing what he loves most about fatherhood, he said: ‘I love everything about being a dad. But the evolution in my relationship with Jes from being a couple to a family is really special and rewarding, too.’

‘I’m lucky to have such a great partner to share this journey with.’

‘I’m not sure there is a secret… every relationship has its hurdles, and we all react differently to situations so it’s important to talk things through and keep an open mind,’ he said. 

‘Having such busy schedules, it’s also important to us to set aside time as a couple, and as a family.’

And while Buddy may not be planning to have any more children in the immediate future, he’s still keeping his options open.

Buddy also said he hopes to impart his love of AFL upon his children, but won’t pressure them to follow in his footsteps by becoming athletes. 

‘I just want them to enjoy the game’, he said. 

‘Being able to bond over something I love and share that with them will be enough.’
