Now that Thanksgiving is over, the Christmas frenzy is in full swing! Are you ready? I love this time of year. The holidays that are so close together can be a drain or they can be wonderful. So I choose to make them wonderful, even on the hard days.

But with all the craziness that comes with Christmas approaching, meal plans can be a life saver, literally. I love using meal plans not only to help us save money on the grocery bill, but to make to my life just a little less stressful during this busy season.

With the craziness of the Christmas holiday season quickly approaching, meal plans can be a life saver for moms! This month you can download two different meal plans that are sure to give your family new and exciting foods to try, as well as celebrate the season. #mealplan #mealplanning #menu #menuplan

The past few weeks I’ve shared some delicious recipes that are perfect for the fall and winter season! If you love homemade breads, be sure to check out these Fall Bread recipes that are sure to melt in your mouth! If you’re already looking ahead to December, these Reindeer Treats would make a fun treat!

If you’re looking to get a jumpstart on your new years resolutions or want to make sure you stay healthy through the holidays, be sure to check out these KETO recipe round-ups. You’ll find Keto Approved Breakfasts to help you start the day, Keto Friendly Salads everyone will enjoy as well also Keto DinnersKeto Slow Cooker Recipes and Keto Desserts so you don’t miss out!

There are still two meal plans you can choose from – the regular meal plan with slow cooker meals on Sundays and Wednesdays, for a break in the kitchen or those busy days. There are a variety of soups to get you through those cold winter nights and some salads to break it up just a bit.

Or choose the Instant Pot Meal Plan. On this plan I have included some delicious winter and festive meals with a variety of meats (fish, chicken, pork, beef), plus a few salads. Also, the suggestions for breakfasts, lunches, snacks and desserts at the bottom are all Instant Pot recipes!

As always, feel free to move any of the recipes around as needed to fit your family’s schedule. However, you can combine the two for more variety. And if you’d like to switch up some of the Slow Cooker Meals to an Instant Pot recipe, check out this Instant Pot beginners post for a great link to help! There is a variety of meats (fish, chicken, beef, pork) as well as soups and salads (on both plans) to keep the whole family happy. My hope each month is that you will find some new favorites to add to your own must have rotation.
