Weekly Meal Plan January 28

Weekly Meal Plan January 28

The Weekly Meal Plan January 28 features healthy 21 Day Fix meal ideas and utilizing the Instant Pot has made healthy eating so much easier, especially when it comes to the meal prep basics like eggs, beans, rice, and meat. 

Hello and Happy Monday! I had wanted to get out this week’s meal plan posted earlier this morning but had a late night last night so I allowed myself to sleep in for a bit. I wanted to change up the meal plan this week for our family to focus more on the 21 Day Fix guidelines. Even though I’m not “officially” a Beachbody Coach, I still actively focus on a  healthy eating and healthy lifestyle. As well as support others on their journey.

Yesterday, I spent a little bit of time in the kitchen meal prepping basics like hard boiled eggs, brown rice and beans. Today, I’ll spend some time on the meats. The Instant Pot is one of my best time-savers is to use my kitchen cooking day to make a big batch of brown rice, then a batch of black beans, then a batch of chicken thighs or breasts.

Now onto the meal plan for the week

Eating meals at home with our families is a great way for families to reconnect and develop relationships as well as customize our families’ meals and nutrition habits. Not to mention, it saves you money!

The Weekly Plan January 28 is Posted

There’s some great recipes in this week’s Weekly Meal Plan! Often times when Sunday rolls around and busy schedules, as moms we don’t have a clue what to make for meals during the week. Let alone always have the time to map out a plan. Lucky for you and me I’ll generally be sharing these healthy weekly meal plans every Sunday night or early Monday mornings! 

I hope you enjoy all the delicious recipes (fingers crossed I can get the posts up during the week so check back) and find these posts helpful. Happy week ahead! Enjoy!

Meal Plan January 28

We’re keeping organized and putting more effort into frugal living and my hope is to help you all on this journey with me to continually save time in the kitchen, have a weekly meal plan and continue to create those family mealtime memories.

Be sure to check out my post on How We’re Cutting Our Grocery Bill for some frugal tips on your next shopping trip. Now, are you ready for the meal plan?

My Meal Planning Process:

  • Prepare for the week: Our family typically meal plans on Sunday (since it’s my first day off from work) and plan out what we are having for breakfast, lunch and dinner each week.  Because we know what we are eating each morning (this definitely helps on those crazy school mornings) and night, it means less stress, less money splurged on eating out and the ability to pull anything frozen out of the freezer the night before.
  • Save some money:  ibotta’s cash back rewards program  We save money on items we purchase often when we can combine a sale and a use a coupon, or even the store’s savings app. I tend to use for every grocery store and Target’s Cartwheel  for Target combined with ibotta.  We also save money by only purchasing the items we plan to eat within a given week, vs. going to the grocery store hungry and winging it… Because we all know how that turns out.
  • Weekly schedules: We always keep our weekly schedules and appointments in mind when we meal plan.  Some nights the kids go off to Neo (a safe, fun social hangout place for kids) or school functions, which means quick and easy dinners. And on our family nights mean we can pick something new to make and spend a little more time preparing a good meal. 

It’s all about finding that balance.
