We’ve been sharing 5-day weekly meal plans for many years now and we love the feedback we get from those of you who found our meal plans and who are using them regularly.

Each meal plan has 5 dinner recipes that will serve approximately 4 adults. We’ve tried to be thoughtful about including recipes that the whole family will love as well as varying the recipes to include a variety of different meals so that you’re not having chicken every night!

Why Meal Plan?

If you’re reading this, you probably already have your own ideas about why meal planning is a good idea for your family, but here’s what we think:

1. Prep Ahead Instructions:

Our meal plans come with prep-ahead instructions for every recipe. Even 5 minutes of cutting veggies or prepping a sauce ahead of time will make all the difference in your attitude about making dinner that night. 

2. Budget Information:

Not only are these meal plans FREE but we’ve also included a rough estimate of budget info for each recipes to help you with your grocery planning. You can also swap out recipes and add more budget friendly recipes with just a few clicks. Learn more here.

3. Edit and Customize Meal Plans:

We know families each have unique needs, that’s why we’ve worked hard to make our meal plans fully customizable. You can swap out recipes, change serving sizes, and change the shopping list. Learn more here.

4. New Meal Plans Each Week:

There’s a new meal plan EVERY WEEK and we offer low carb, budget, and seasonal meal plans too.
