A Solution for the Perpetual "What's For Dinner?" Question

What's for dinner?
What's for dinner?
What's for dinner?

You have to answer this question EVERYDAY!

And if you don't have a plan - you probably end up spending too much money & eating too much junky, processed food.

But you don't want to dig through cookbooks, plan complete healthy meals and then put together a complete  shopping list every week! It just seems like too much work for your already busy schedule!

The Solution:

One of several online menu planning services.  For a small fee these services will deliver premade meal plans & shopping lists RIGHT TO YOUR EMAIL INBOX every week. No More "What's for Dinner" crisises at 4:30 in the afternoon.  Just print out the shopping list and go to the grocery store on the weekend (or whenever you do your shopping). Then follow the meal plan and you'll be prepared for the week!


1) Dine Without Whine offers a family-friendly menu planning.

Each week you get:
* Main Dish Recipes For Dinner Every Night Of The Week
* Suggestions For Side Dishes
*Brunch Ideas For Saturday And Sunday
* A Couple Dessert Recipes To Be Used Anytime During the Week
* and most importantly each menu will include a grocery list  (categorized by aisle) for the week that includes all the necessary ingredients to prepare the recipes highlighted in the newsletter!  All you have to do is cross off any items you may already have on hand - add breakfast, snack or lunch items you may need and you're ready to shop!

All recipes are fairly simple and family friendly, which means they *should* appeal to your picky eaters too! It’s affordably priced at $4.95/month. You can check it out at

2) Healthy Menu Mailers is very similar to DineWithoutWhine. It’s an affordable email service where you receive healthy menu plans each week in your inbox instead of “family-friendly” meals.  Each week you get:

    *  7 healthy dinner recipes that are easy to prepare (and of course very tasty).
    * A grocery list to go along with it.
    * A personal note from Susanne and Christine to encourage you to stick with your new healthy lifestyle.
    * Access to breakfast, lunch, side dish, dessert and snack recipes.
    * Access to the members only forum to meet other like minded people, exchange ideas and recipes and get help from Christine and Susanne.

3) MenuPlanningCentral  offers  more value than DWW or HMM. Instead of one type of menu, this program offers three (one family friendly, one healthy menu, and one vegetarian) – enough of each type for one entire month.

You also get a special monthly report (with past products archived), covering different  culinary topics  - such as grilling or Mexican, expert advice, videos, a community forum, and more. You'll definately want to check this one out at:


Don't stress out over dinner anymore. Consider a menu planning service. It will save you time, money & stress and you're family will be healthier for it. It is worth the small investment!
