What to Eat This Week: June, Week 1 image

This week we’re keeping things light and easy. Summer is just around the corner, and if you’re like me, you’re spending more time outdoors and wanting to spend less cooking in the kitchen.

If you don’t have an Instant Pot or a slow cooker for some of this week’s recipes, feel free to swap them out with something that’s easier for you. We have tons of great recipes to choose from!

So which kitchen gadgets do you really need? It’s depends on your routine. For example, I use my Instant Pot almost every day, while the slow cooker only gets pulled out once or twice a month.

As for things that you must have, I’d say there are very few. A good skillet is one, and a nice sharp knife is another. Beyond that, it’s really about what makes your food prep life easier. Don’t fall for the thought that you need to have the latest kitchen equipment or gadgets, because sometimes less is more.

Here’s your meal plan for the week:


Anytime I can get an entire meal in one pan, I think it’s a winner. This One-Pan Sweet Potato Hash is perfect because it works for any meal of the day!

Don’t give in to the takeout temptation. Instead, whip up this easy (and much tastier) Chicken and Broccoli Stir-Fry Don’t have broccoli? I’ve also made this with cauliflower and it’s just as delish.
