Need recipe ideas to start off the new year? I’ve got four weeks of dinner, sides and dessert ideas just for you in our January menu plan!
And just like that – it’s the new year! Are you excited to start a new year of adventures?
I am huge believer in menu planning and I love being able to share my tips and tricks with y’all. If you need help getting started menu planning, check out THIS POST. I break it down and make it easy to get started. No need to fear the menu plan!
A few things to note –
There are 4 weeks of menus below. Each week has 6 main dishes, 2 sides and 1 dessert. Feel free to take recipes from any week and create your own menu plan. These recipes are for here to inspire your own menu plan.
I check all the ingredients and recipes that are gluten free, Keto, Paleo, or Whole30 are marked. I have also marked recipes that use a crock pot or Instant pot or are made using only one pot/pan.
You can also grab a free grocery list and menu planner printable below. Let’s get eating!
