One of the most challenging times of the day in my house is dinner time. I’m trying to finish up work for the day. My husband wants my attention. The kids are coming home from work and school. Everyone seems to be in the kitchen wondering what’s for dinner. Sometimes I have no idea. Healthy meal plans for the week have made my life so much easier!
Healthy Meal Plans for the Week
I knew I needed to be better about meal planning but finding one that worked for our family with our different dietary needs was challenging. Sarah is gluten and dairy intolerant. I try to follow a Paleo or Primal diet. Marty is diabetic and needs low carb. I wanted a healthy meal plan that included easy substitutions for different dietary issues. I just hadn’t had any luck finding one until now.
Prep Dish provides gluten free and paleo meals that take advantage of seasonal ingredients to keep the costs down. Every Friday, I get an email with the meal plan for the week. BUT, that’s not all. It gets better. Along with the meal plan is a shopping list, divided by category (produce, meat, dairy, etc.).
In addition to the meal plan, you get instructions for “prep day”cooking so each night most of the work is done when it’s time for dinner. On prep day, which for me is Saturday, you follow directions to prep most of the meals. That means the chopping, dicing, marinating, baking, and organizing is done ahead of time. I spend two to three hours on Saturday preparing ingredients so that dinner time takes only 5 to 30 minutes.
I’ve tried once a month cooking before and was a total failure. I’m not that organized and I don’t have a whole day to devote to cooking. Prep Dish worked for me. It only takes two to three hours and the meals are ones that I want to serve to my family. All the meals from Prep Dish are gluten free or Paleo.
The weekly email lists easy substitutions you can make if necessary. Those that don’t want dairy follow the dairy substitutions. Those that don’t want nuts use the nut free substitutions. Those that don’t want seafood can use the seafood swaps. For those that have food intolerances or allergies, Prep Dish is just the solution you’ve been looking for.
With Prep Dish, you get four dinner meals, one salad, one breakfast, one snack, and one dessert. You receive options for both Paleo and gluten free. Then you click a link, print out the shopping list, meal plan, prep day instructions and dish day instructions. Shop, prep and cook! That’s all there is to it.
You can subscribe to their service either monthly ($14/month) or yearly ($99/year). Every Friday, you receive an email with a downloadable PDF file that includes everything you need for the week. It’s never been so easy to make healthy meals the whole family loves!
