How to meal plan effectively 

Using a meal plan to organize your week of meals is actually a really simple thing to do. Check out some of my meal plan options to help you figure out a good balance and plan. 

Tips for starting to meal plan

If you’re new to meal planning, just know that it’s okay to feel overwhelmed. But once you get the hang of it, you’re going to love it! 

Make certain to have a game plan. Obviously, taking into account your family’s likes and dislikes is the first box to check when meal planning. What’s the point in preparing a meal no one is going to eat? 

Once you have that down, you can choose a protein or ingredient and create an entire meal plan based on that. Meal planning is a super simple way to effectively create meals that are affordable and tasty. 

What side dish would go well with this Instant Pot Red Pepper Chicken? 

There are so many great options! I like to add vegetables to my dinner plans such as asparagus, corn, broccoli, or a number of other veggies that fits your family’s taste buds and add in nutritious and healthy options. 

Is this Instant Pot Red Pepper Chicken dish spicy?

It can have a little bit of a kick to it so make certain that you’re aware of that before feeding people who don’t like spice. And if you’re wanting to keep it not spicy at all, you can always take out that ingredient, too.

Is chicken one of the healthier types of protein to eat?

It is! This is one type of meat that my family eats a lot. Ever since my weight loss surgery about six years ago, I’ve tried to be mindful of recipes that I cook and serve in the house. 

Eating chicken a few times per week is a great way to eat a low-fat meal that is tasty, too. Plus, chicken is really, really versatile. 

Is this chicken recipe allergy-friendly?

It is. You’ll find that the ingredients of this recipe mean that it is soy-free, gluten-free, and low carb. Since we have several allergies and restrictions in our family, this is one recipe that we can all eat and enjoy. 

What can I use leftover Instant Pot Red Pepper Chicken for?

You can use it in a salad, you can reheat it and just eat it like it is the next day, or you can even freeze it and save it for another time that you’re craving for it. There are so many ways that you can easily eat this delicious recipe over and over again.
