Real Food Meal Plans to Save Your Sanity: Dinner is Fixed!
Picture this: You arrive home after a long day and realize you don’t know what you’re going to serve your grumpy, tired family for dinner.
You stare into the refrigerator, open cupboards, and pick through your pantry looking for quick inspiration - and in the end, serve the fastest thing you can find, which ultimately isn’t the healthy meal you’d like to serve them, but hey, at least they’ll go to bed with food in their bellies, right?
Ever happen to you?
Welcome to The Tired & Hungry Cook’s Companion, THE mealplan designed specifically to help you serve your family nourishing meals easily and enjoy your family - even when you’re tired and hungry.
A Comprehensive Meal Plan: Your Recipe for Success
Each month, the meal plan includes:
Nearly all the meals you'll need for the entire month, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner 100% real food - no processed foods Extra recipes for snacks & pantry staples Flexible plans that work for YOUR schedule Ingredient checklists Detailed prep notes Printable planners 1 family activity idea each month
The best remedy for stress at dinnertime is not quicker recipes, but intentional planning and preparation.
••• At The Tired & Hungry Cook's Companion, we provide the planning and tons of prep options - so everything works in YOUR schedule!
How the Plan Works
STEP 1: GET THE PLAN Each month, the new meal plan will be e-mailed to you.

And there's also plenty of space to incorporate meals you already know your family loves!
STEP 3: EAT & ENJOY Whether you eat together every night or only occasionally, use the ideas included in the meal plan to make time for each other and take joy in the knowledge that you're nourishing your family in body and soul.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is this an app?
No, not at this time. Your meal plan will be delivered to you in a PDF format, which can be printed out or used on any device that reads PDFs.
I want to view the meal plans on my iPad, iPhone, Kindle, Nook, or other mobile device. Is that possible?
Yes, typically. First download the meal plan file onto your computer from your member area or via the link that arrives in your e-mail, then transfer the file to your mobile device.
I am allergic to peanuts/tree nuts/strawberries/shellfish/eggs/soy and eat kosher/vegetarian/grain-free/dairy-free. Can I still use the meal plans?
Like all recipes at NourishingJoy.com and in the books at NaturallySavvyMom.com, the one criteria for our recipes is 100% real food and no industrially processed anything.
That said, many of the recipes DO fit the above criteria, but they’re not created with that in mind, so not EVERY recipe will be grain-free or be kosher or whatever your specific need may be.
Again, we aim to provide real food recipes that make it easy for families to not rely on boxed, canned, and processed ingredients, but to use fresh, easy-to-find ingredients.
Is this a long-term commitment?
You may pay by the month, by the quarter, or by the year - it's up to you! We specifically have a month-to-month option so you don't have to feel locked in if you don't want to.
Choose from three convenient payment plans. Simply choose what fits your need and your budget.
The Tired & Hungry Cook's Companion is designed as a membership service, and some of the best parts of what we offer are located in the Member's Area.
However, we also know that sometimes you just want this month's issue - you want the seasonal recipes, the prep plans, and that's it. For example, in November, we include a full Thanksgiving menu in addition to the 65+ regular recipes, so we can understand why you would want JUST that issue.
If that's you, we offer access to just this month's issue for $20. (Archived issues are available for $25.) Just click the button below, fill in the form, and this month's issue will be whisked to you, available for immediate use.
