Instant Pot Meal Plan

Delicious Instant Pot Meals For Each Month of the Year

Meal planning is one of those things that I’ve never been 100% successful at. I always start with the best intentions and somehow after a short while I fall back into old habits.

It’s always the same story:

We get all excited, plan out a week of meals and buy all the ingredients. For a whole week, we eat delicious pre-planned meals and there’s no eating out. (That means $$ saved!!) Then comes week two and then life happens and we forget to plan the meals for the week and then it’s over.

Who wants Chick Fil A?

I Finally Have a Plan

So this year, I’m making it a goal to meal plan. Once I make it a goal, it’s ON!! I’m going to try to be as intentional as possible to stick to a meal plan every month.

By putting these meal plans together every month, it will make it easier to know exactly what to cook each day and what ingredients to have on hand. I also really feel like the Instant Pot can help me keep up with a monthly meal plan.

Time to Conquer This Meal Planning Thing

Ok, so with 5 children and life in general, I have to be realistic. Maybe I won’t be able to follow the plan perfectly. Maybe you won’t either. The beauty of it is, you can tweak it when you need to and you can move things around to suit your needs. The key is to try to be as consistent as possible and when you go off track, just try to get back on it as soon as possible. Let’s be as intentional as possible and we can conquer this meal planning thing together!!

    I just found this page last week. I have already made a few recipes from it! So far all of them have been a hit. When will you post Octobers menu?

  • Krista says:

    I have loved the monthly meal plans. Did we lose the ability to go back to a prior month’s meal plan? I was trying to go back to November’s meal plan but only the December calendar shows up. I thought all the prior month’s plans appeared before.

    • Valerie Cooper says:

      Hi Krista! The actual recipes for previous meal plans are still available in list form with clickable links, right here on this page. After the last recipe for this month, you’ll find the buttons for the previous months, they’re hot pink buttons. We did remove the actual pdf calendars to make it easier for people to print just this month’s. If you feel like you can still use the actual calendar for previous months then let me know and we will upload them again after Christmas. Thanks for stopping by!
