A Month of 30-Minute Meals

Don’t you just love serving your family a meal that was quick and easy to prepare? Better yet when your kids like their plates clean. Am I right?

Well, trust me when I say I’ve prepared lots of dinners to kids. By my calculations, I’ve prepared about 19, 710 meals so far. We’ve had some winners. (And yes, some train wrecks, too.) But overall, dinnertime at our house is a good one.

One of the things that I’ve learned over the last 20+ years of motherhood is that having a meal plan helps me to stay under budget as well as keep tight hold on my peace of mind.

30 Minute Meal Plans

Since 2015 I’ve been developing a series of monthly meal plans designed to make your life easier and your dinners tastier.

  • What if I told you you could make dinner in less time than it takes to find your keys and make a run for the border?
  • What if it involved no processed foods?
  • What if it tasted delicious, your kids loved it, and you lost ten pounds?!

Okay, I can’t promise the weight loss. But, I can promise all those other things. A Month of Meal Plans is designed to help you feed your family well without a lot of hassle.


Here’s what you’ll get in each Month of Meals:

  • 30 recipes selected around a theme. All are budget- and family-friendly. The recipes are included in the book so you won’t have to be clicking around to find them. It’s all in the document. This month’s theme is 30-minute meals.
  • color photos – So you know what you’re making!
  • 4 weeks of meal plans – organized so that recipes build on one another wherever possible.
  • 5 grocery lists – 1 for each of the four weeks as well as one for the entire month so you can shop in advance, taking advantage of sale pricing and knowing that you really will use up that whole jar of sundries tomatoes.
  • side-dish suggestions – five bonus recipes and links to others to help you make dinners quick and easy.
  • homemade alternative ideas – substitutions for commercially made items
  • weekly prep tips – list of things that can be made in advance and guidance to stretch your dollar as well as your kitchen time.
  • leftover alerts – “catch all meals” plus ideas for what to make with little bits of leftovers so you don’t waste anything.

Each plan costs $9. Want regular monthly deliveries so you don’t even have to think about it? Check out the Digital Foodie Box.

    Hi Jessica,

    I was trying to buy your new 30 meals ebook, but as I am not shopping from Canada or the US, I cannot seem to proceed through check-out.
    Is that the case? Or have I done something.



  2. I’d love to try one of these, but since my daughter & I can’t eat dairy, I’m hesitant since I don’t know how much cheese or milk is included. I can substitute things or just eliminate it sometimes, but I don’t know if in the end it would be worth the $9. So for future months, how about an allergy friendly theme? It’s horribly hard, though, I know.

    • Great question! The plan doesn’t have a ton of cheese, but it does have a fair amount. :/

      I will put that topic on the list for sure and keep that in mind for future plans. Thanks for the suggestion!

      I understand this very well as I have multiple food allergies to manage in my house as well, including milk, eggs, soy, peanuts, and gluten. I find that a lot of Jessica’s recipes are really easy to adapt for me usually. Cheese has been the hardest thing for us too. We either leave it off or put on individually (three of us can have it). Because of the allergies, there always has to be modifications of some sort. But it’s the planning part that I struggle with the most, not the cooking these days.

    Would we see a listing of the meals? Thanks!

    I would be interested in a menu plan that “makes the most of your bread machine.”

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
