There are some nights – OK, many nights – when the idea of prepping, cooking and doing all the dishes has you scrolling through your phone for delivery. With this plan, and a little help from your Instant Pot, you’ll have dinner solved for the week.

Protein Planning

Prep everything on Sunday, but then use up your proteins strategically throughout the week. In this plan, we suggest using more-delicate salmon on Monday while keeping the less perishable meatless option for Thursday night.


Monday: Wild Mushroom Salmon with Asparagus

Tuesday: Beef Braciole

Wednesday: Loaded Chipotle Chicken Tostadas

Thursday: Ginger Garlic Tofu with Noodles
