Cooking dinner every evening can sometimes be time-consuming and stressful, especially if there are varying taste palates. For most of us busy moms, cooking dinner is sometimes the last thing on our minds after a long, busy and frustrating day with work and chasing around our children. There is always our tried and true favorite standby recipes that we can always rely on, but even those can get old after awhile. Some of the “new” recipes that we’re wanting to try to require a laundry list of ingredients that are usually expensive or not commonly available at the grocery store, and quite frankly, and how does anyone have time for that?

This sounds like exactly what I Need in my life. I am all for anything that makes my life easier!!!
What a wonderful service. I always like meal planning, but some weeks I just get so frustrated by it and don’t know what to make, so this seems like it would be a great option!

I would be curious to figure out if this worked for me. I wonder if I would stick to it or if it would be a waste.

This sounds like a really great idea. I could say for me though, I would follow it for a few days and then forget all about it because I get bored of things really quickly. But for more strategic people who like to plan every detail, perfect.
This sounds like great service for those not used to meal planning. Looking at your pics though it looks like they don’t do vegan menus. Ah well.

This would definitely make life easier and I do love easier. I think many would agree with me.
i love anything that makes life easier and this looks like it would totally help. i could totally use this
Well, isn’t this convenient! I love that it helps you plan meals according to your specifications. It’s not easy to meal plan when you have kids that have different requirements when it comes to the kind of food that they eat! I love this service!

I’m so tired of having to come up with new dinner recipes every day!! And here in Norway, there’s literally nothing in the supermarkets so it’s, even more, difficult. This meal planning service definitely sounds like a great idea for all the busy people out there! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

This sounds really awesome. So many people need easier, quicker and good. Its amazing they have an option for nursing moms this is right up my alley!
This looks like a really nice system. I’m always looking for new meals to cook. I easily get stuck in a rut and cook the same meals over and over because I know how to cook them. But then my family gets tired of them, haha.
I really need to look into this service. Often times, my family gets tired of eating the same ole things for dinner. This would give me new meal ideas and hope to prepare it.
