Weekly recipes & shopping lists for flexible, affordable, easy to cook midweek meals.



All recipes are designed to be easily customized and always include protein swap suggestions – so you can adapt to suit.




Meals are delicious but never too complicated – they’re quick to make and you won’t use every pot, pan and utensil you own to cook them.




Subscriptions start at less than $1 per week. Use our shopping lists to buy your own ingredients for the recipes you choose to make.

Need dinner inspiration without feeling boxed in?

When you get home from work and open the fridge, what do you see? The same few recipes that you dish up in various ways throughout your week? Maybe you tried the kind of subscription where ingredients are delivered to your door but — if you’re like me — most of those ended up going to waste as our plans changed or someone turned up their noses at ingredients outside their comfort zone.

At Eat Better Dinners, we offer a meal inspiration service complete with printable recipes and shopping lists that make adding dinner ingredients to your weekly shop a breeze. We believe it’s the perfect balance of getting the help you deserve while having the flexibility to make it your own.

Here’s how it Works:

1. Get Weekly Dinner Inspiration

Every Thursday you’ll receive a meal plan with 3 fully-customizable meals to try with full step-by-step, easy-to-follow recipes.

2. Shop For Your Meal Ingredients

You shop for your ingredients using our easy to read, printable, shopping lists that help reduce costs and time spent in the supermarket. 

3. Cook and Eat Better Dinners.

Our easy meals and are specifically designed for midweek cooking – nearly all are on the table in 30-ish minutes.

The recipes are perfect for busy families looking for new ideas for dinner. They have interesting flavours and it’s really easy to make changes/substitutions if you’re dealing with fussy family members. The suggested substitutions are always helpful – I love that there’s often more than one suggested change you can make! I would highly recommend signing up if you’re busy, want to eat delicious meals that are different to “the usual” but don’t have the brain space to come up with something different.

Here’s a sample of how our subscribers are making our inspiration their own:

We don’t make all the recipes – probably one a week. Just enough to mix things up a bit and I definitely no longer feel stuck in that rut!  Thank you

I’ve been an Eat Better Dinners subscriber for over a year now, and I loooove it! The stress related to meal planning has completely disappeared for me – a huge huge benefit.

Questions? Check out our FAQ

What is Eat Better Dinners?

We are a dinner menu planning service for busy households. We provide all the tools you need to shop for, prepare and cook delicious meals for you and your family. We make home cooking easy, flexible and healthy(ish).

Why should I pay for recipes when there are so many free options online?

Eat Better Dinners has done the hard work for you. Our recipes are complete meals, not just a new way to cook chicken breast – there’s no need to dream up what sides to also make. Our recipes are tested, adapted and refined in average home kitchens using standard home kitchen appliances, utensils and readily available ingredients. 

What do I get when I subscribe?

Sign up to a trial, monthly or annual plan and every week you will receive a meal plan email with three printable recipes, swap suggestions and a shopping list.

Why not just use a food box delivery service?

While these services can come in handy for some people, they can be quite restrictive. They lack the flexibility needed to accommodate dietary needs, likes, dislikes, changing household routines and other unknowns.

Eat Better Dinners provides a list of swap-out options so you can tweak it to suit your family.

You have the freedom to choose which meal you cook on which day, control the number of ingredients you buy, and change key ingredients depending on your preferences.

Do I need to be a good cook?

We have designed all our dinner recipes to be simple, fast and easy to follow. The average home cook can create tasty meals in 35 minutes or less (any that take longer will be only due to cooking times, not preparation time). That is why we call them easy dinner recipes!

Unless you are a complete beginner, you will be able to follow and understand all of our recipes.

Will the meals cost a lot to make?

We aim to inspire you while keeping things simple. Recipes will be based around what is currently in season. There won’t be anything too expensive or hard to find on them. All ingredients will be common, and you will find many meals that are a twist on everyday foods.

How much does a subscription cost?

We want Eat Better Dinners to be a cost-effective way to solve the meal planning rut many people find themselves in. For less than the cost of a cup of coffee a week, or buying a new cookbook, you will get all the meal inspiration you need.

  • Monthly subscriptions are $5.99 per month
  • Annual subscriptions are $29.99 per year

Please see our subscribe page to subscribe.

What if I have special dietary needs?

The beauty of Eat Better Dinners is that it is fully customisable and flexible. Because we include swap suggestions for every recipe, you can easily replace meat/fish/poultry with other protein options and accommodate for low carb, low salt/sugar and other dietary requirements.

Gluten-free:  Most of our meals are naturally gluten-free. When they aren’t, alternatives will often be given. That being said, we do assume you are already aware of the standard foods to watch out for when shopping –  including bread, pasta, soy sauce etc.

Other allergies & intolerances: Our meals focus on fresh, in season, everyday ingredients – including dairy, nuts, eggs, nightshades and other trigger foods.

 With everything being customisable and you shopping for your own ingredients, you may find Eat Better Dinners works for you, but we don’t specifically cater to any dietary requirements.

So go on –

Get out of your dinnertime rut,

and start Eating Better Dinners.
