January is the perfect time for a little dinner planning inspiration. After a month of way too many amazing cookies and chocolates (not complaining), it’s time to get back to a more normal meal schedule. If you’ve made a 2017 resolution to eat better, a roundup of 30 days of healthy dinner recipes just made your life that much easier. I also know what it’s like to face the daily grind of deciding what to make for dinner. You start a new week, and your mind is blank. Having a few go-to recipe sources makes life a lot easier.
My 30 days of healthy dinner recipes plan is largely based on the recipes I make on a regular basis. In the instances where I’m not sharing my exact recipes, I’m sharing recipes that are very similar. All of these recipes consist solely of easy-to-find, familiar ingredients, eliminating the need to make trips to multiple grocery stores each week (no one has time for that). Over time, as you determine which recipes work best for your family, you’ll be able to stock up on pantry staples accordingly, making your life even easier.
I’ve arranged the 30 days of healthy dinner recipes into groupings of five to make weekday meal planning a breeze. I don’t ever cook from scratch seven days a week. Realistically, at most, I cook three or four dinners per week. The other nights, we’re eating leftovers, grilling out, or eating out. (Yes, I’m talking about grilling in January. It does happen in Wisconsin.) I don’t ever need seven dinner ideas in a single week, and I know that most people don’t either. Arranging the 30 days of meals over six weeks means you really have a month and a half of dinner plans. Win-win. Happy healthy eating!
