Meal Planning is one of the best ways to ensure that you and your family are eating well-balanced dinners and sticking to your monthly grocery budget.

  • 5 recipes for your work week
  • Complete grocery list
  • Each recipe is only $0.50
  • Everything available gluten free

The slow cooker lends itself to meal planning — in order to plug in the pot in the morning, you need to be sure that the food is already in your kitchen.

These packets will help take the guess work out of meal planning. Each packet has 5 complete recipes with a grocery list for you. Simply print out the packets, and take the grocery list to the store. You now have 5 ready-to-go dinners to slow cook during your busy week. Because slow cooking lends itself to leftovers, you may find that you can stretch the meals to last longer than 5 days.

Due to a family allergy, all of the included recipes have been made with completely gluten-free ingredients. If you are not gluten-free, simply ignore my notes.

All of the recipes chosen were well-reviewed and tested on my A Year of Slow Cooking site and were featured in my cookbooks.

Meal Plans


“I am using this plan this week (Slow Cooker Staples) and I have to say it has been so wonderful having the thinking, always the hard part, done for me. Went shopping with the list. Assembling the recipes has been easy. Did the lasagna prep the night before and dropped it into my slow cooker. Came home from a 6 mile run to a finished meal. Sweet. Thank you for your menu plans. They make my life much easier.”

“This was the best idea ever. I totally abdicated my weekly meal planning over to you. It was fun and I loved trying a few things I wouldn’t have thought to try before.”

“Thank you so much for this. I love having a plan with the grocery list already done.”

“I love being able to not think about anything when I grocery shop and just have it all laid out for me. Thank you for taking the time to get this all together! I love your books, but this makes it even easier.”
