You thought you might be able to catch your breath after the holidays, right? No such luck. Looks like we’ll hit the ground running immediately after New Years Day. Work and school resumes for all, plus the high school basketball season which will monopolize most evenings. For this reason, I need a quick and healthy January meal plan.
Similar to our other monthly meal plans, you’ll see we are only including four dinners per week. The rest of the days are filled with leftovers, a pantry meal, or soup and sandwich on a cold night.
Also included is a make-and-freeze breakfast each week. This will get everyone fed on the busiest mornings.
What You Should Eat For Dinner in January
We’ll start of the new year with sandwiches on New Year’s Day. It’s the perfect day to put out deli meat, cheese, and some soft pretzel rolls (our favorite). Add in some marinated olives, pickles, chips, or fruit. This is how we do New Year’s Day at our home.
Pantry Staples to Supplement Your Meal Plan
Having your refrigerator and pantry stocked with staples makes dinnertime easy. Ingredients like eggs, veggies, dried pasta, and jarred sauces can be used to fill in the busy nights.
Quick Breakfast Ideas
Breakfast is hard in our house. My teenager never wants to eat but I can’t send her to school without anything in her stomach. Here’s a few popular breakfast ideas from the blog.
