Healthy Crock Pot Meals are featured as part of our Weekly Meal Plan. Together with printable menus available for you to customize for your family’s dinner, you can use these recipes to inspire your meal planning this week.
The start of the new week is always exciting. And what better way to start the week than with planning out what you're going to be making for dinner every night for your family.
I really do think the slow cooker is the perfect kitchen appliance to help create my meal plan. It really does take a lot of last minute work out of the meal when you come home at the end of the day and dinner is almost ready to go.
Crock Pot Meal Prep
Most of the time when I have a meal cooked in the crock pot I just need to add a simple salad or steam our favorite vegetables. And if your family is like mine, they don’t like having the same recipe over and over again.
I think you’re going to enjoy trying these healthy crock pot meals this week. There are more crock pot meal plans and recipes available here on the blog as well. So take some time and look around!
Make sure you check out 10 Essentials Pantry Items and Freezer Meal Planning Tips to further help you customize your family’s dinner. Let’s talk about this week’s meal plan!
Crockpot Meal Plan and Shopping List
This is just an example of how I like to meal plan. You could also incorporate a “leftover meal” or even “clean out the refrigerator” night.
Try to use what you have in your pantry and freezer to plan meals. It helps to keep a list so you know exactly what you have on hand.
Assign each day of the week a different category and then plan a meal according to that category.
- Monday - Meatless, Vegetarian or even Leftovers from the weekend.
- Tuesday - Taco Tuesday or Mexican Recipe
- Wednesday - Chicken, Beef or Fish
- Thursday - Pasta or Italian Night
- Friday - Sandwiches and Soup
- Saturday - Pizza or Eat Out, Order In
- Sunday - Comfort Food Meal
Now, pick a side dish to serve with the recipes listed above. Side dishes should include potatoes or rice along with one or two veggies. A tossed salad with homemade ranch salad dressing is always nice too.
