Trying to figure out how to meal plan? One of the most popular resolutions is to eat healthy and cook more at home.
Creating a one month meal plan is a great way to make sure you’re eating at home, using your pantry and freezer stockpiles, and plan simple family dinners around your schedule.
Monthly Meal Plan Subscription
Using done-for-you meal plans is such a simple way to try new recipes while saving time in the kitchen!
My favorite one-month meal plans are from MyFreezEasy. You can choose meal plans based on what kinds of food you want to eat (perfect if you’re following a specific diet or have food allergies) or how you want to cook, like Instant Pot, skillet, slow cooker, baked recipes, etc.
In addition to a month’s worth of delicious recipes, MyFreezEasy also includes instructions to create freezer meals from each recipe so you begin to create a stockpile of simple dinners.
One Month Slow Cooker Meal Plan
The slow cooker is a great appliance because it can help you prepare healthy meals for your family, without any fuss or mess. Just add your ingredients and go about your day while dinner cooks itself!
In the Organized Kitchen Binder, there are 31 simple slow cooker recipes to make every day of the month.
In addition, most of these recipes can be converted to an Instant Pot recipe by adding one cup of hot water.
For full conversion instructions, check out the Organized Kitchen Binder, which has these 31 slow cooker recipes in printable recipe cards, in addition to 20+ Instant Pot recipes, kitchen inventory sheets, and more.
One Month Meal Plan for Weight Loss
Depending on which weight loss plan you’re following, you may need to tweak your current meal plan to focus on adding healthier habits into your daily meals.
Here’s how to create a healthy meal plan.
But bottom line, if you’re eating with the goal of weight loss, regardless of which weight loss plan you choose, you need to be eating more “healthy” foods and less “junk.”
In my dieting excursions, I’ve followed both Weight Watchers and the 21 Day Fix diet plans.
Here are printable meal planners for:

Printable Monthly Meal Planner and Grocery List
When you’re creating a monthly meal plan, it’s helpful to keep track of your shopping list, pantry inventory, and freezer inventory all in one place.
A monthly meal planner and grocery list can help you eat healthier and save money. This is because it will help you prepare for the weeks ahead by identifying what ingredients you need to stock up on. It will also ensure that you are purchasing food that is in season, which helps reduce food waste because seasonal produce is often less expensive.
The planner helps you plan healthy recipes to make your cooking time easier.
The grocery list removes the hassle of having to run around the store looking for items to buy. You can simply take your time shopping, knowing that every item on the list has been accounted for already.
You can find pages for all your lists in the Organized Kitchen Binder.
If you don’t have the Organized Kitchen Binder, here’s a free printable meal planner, which includes space to list your groceries.
