Meal Planning is an essential way that I kept to myself for years. But, today, I want to share with you the foods that I will be feeding my family.
I pray you had a Merry Christmas and wonderful start to the New Year! I’m so excited to be connecting with y’all again and what better way to start to kick-start 2019 then with weekly meal planning! If you aren’t signed up for the 21 Day Activate Prayer and Fasting Challenge, there’s still time to jump in.
Many of you know, that I love cooking and to help keep my life organized, I try to meal plan each week and write down the recipes that I’m making based on my family’s schedule for the week.
Starting this week, I’m going to be sharing my weekly meal planning schedule including links to all of my favorite recipes to help you plan out your recipes and cook lightened-up meals for your family.
I also love hearing from you, so be sure to let me know if this is helpful and if you have favorite recipes or ideas for new recipes in the New Year!

Monday: Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff
Monday is always crazy! The start of a new week, something typically always comes up or we need to run a child somewhere! Start the week off right by throwing all your ingredients into a slow cooker and letting it do all the work!
All that you have left to do when you are ready to eat, is boil some noodles, that’s it!
Tuesday: The Easiest Cheeseburger Pie
If you have a older child who enjoys making dinner, give them this recipe! It’s super easy to make, but, is oh so delicious.
This is a family favorite in our house. We hope you enjoy this Cheeseburger Pie as much as we do!
Wednesday: Mexican Inspired Black Bean Quinoa Salad
Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring. When you get into the groove of knowing the calories of your favorite foods and subbing them for healthy choices, it gets easier, I promise!
This is one of my favorite recipes to make….and eat! Save any leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
Thursday: Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers
You will love this meal that doesn’t need utensils for this warm, cheesy, ooey-gooey, delicious meal! Boiling the peppers makes them a bit softer, and they’re filled with tons of colorful, healthy, tasty ingredients.
Grab your slow cooker again! This time, you’ll be serving up the family this super delicious, packed full of flavor, you control the heat, Chicken Tortilla Soup.
Throw any leftovers in a thermos for a delicious lunch!
You made it to Friday! Celebrate with the family and recreate these Chicken Enchiladas, that don’t come with all the calories of visiting your favorite Mexican Restaurant!
While you are busy doing the laundry, catching up with the family, running errands and doing some more laundry, grab that trusty ‘ole slow cooker again to prepare a dinner recipe the entire family will rave about!
