Instant Pot Inspired Meal Plan

Sharing is caring!

This week I’m taking a slightly different approach to my meal planning. My husband and I both have a lot going on at work and expect to put in extra hours. I’m creating an Instant Pot inspired meal plan┬áthis week. That means easy Instant Pot recipes and some batch cooking for simple meals.

If you don’t have an Instant Pot you might want to consider getting one. If it’s not in the cards don’t worry, you can make the same recipes with other cooking methods.

As the week goes on I might switch up some of the meals. I really wanted to provide a meal plan for those of you who use the Instant Pot regularly and those of you who got one on Prime Day and are just getting started. We may have cereal instead of Oatmeal or simple rice or beans instead of the meal shown.

If you are on my email list you would have received some BONUS meal planning tips on┬áSaturday! They were all about simplifying your meal plan! If you didn’t get them get on the list before the next email goes out with more plant-based tips!

I noticed an error and a small group of you didn’t get the email on Saturday so I sent it out Sunday night! Sorry for the delay!

    Holly, I got an instant pot for Christmas…kind of hard to figure out. We did make chili from recipe my husband found online. Not very good, thank you for offering your instant pot recipes, your recipes are always good and simple! Will pray for your son and family…please pray for me as I took a hard fall and am in a lot of pain, nothing broken but need a cane to walk. Happy New a year, may 2018 be a blessing for your family w healing for your son. Vicki Smith
