Why Customers Love Our Service:
We all know the pain of dreaming up new ways to cook weeknight staples.
We take that pain away with clever twists on everyday and in season ingredients.
Between shopping, preparation and cleaning, home-cooked meals can take a lot out of you.
Luckily, our simple recipes and short shopping lists reduce time spent in the store and kitchen.
Get creative in the kitchen
Make weeknight cooking enjoyable again! Our flavourful recipes are designed to eliminate stress and take traditional staples from dull to delectable. We do all the creative work so you don’t have to.
Be smarter when you grocery shop
We’re all guilty of wandering around the grocery store hungry and indecisive, then leaving with a pile of expensive items that won’t last two days. Our weekly shopping lists give you an easy, affordable way to shop, instore, online, from markets or your own vege garden.
“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.”
2. Shop for your ingredients
Your inspired menu is already set! All you have to do is pick up the ingredients. Our handy shopping lists make cooking meals affordable and flexible. Because you shop for your own ingredients, if you dont fancy any of the week’s meals, or life gets in the way, you simply dont buy the ingredients. No waste.

- Full step-by-step, easy-to-follow recipes for each meal.
- Complete shopping lists that reduce costs and time spent in the grocery store.

Your Plate, Your Ingredients, Your Choice
Most of these meals are so easy to make my teenagers can get dinner ready – love.
We’ve got some new family favourites now too!
As a single guy I’m loving being able to buy my own ingredients. I try to eat lower carb and its so easy to manage this with these meals. I no longer wander aimlessly around the supermarket trying to think of things to have for dinner
What I love about this service is being able to swap out ingredients. I’m vegetarian so if there’s a steak meal that looks awesome, we’ll get steak for my boyfriend and a halluomi or mushroom swap for me.

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 nutritious.
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 tested, adapted and refined in average home kitchens using readily available ingredients. We take the stress out of dinnertime, which is something that free services just don’t do.
What do I get when I subscribe?
Sign up to a weekly, 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 30 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 around the cost of a cup of coffee a week, you will get all the meal inspiration you need.
Please see our subscribe page for the various subscription costs.
What if I have special dietary needs?
The beauty of Eat Better Dinners is that it is fully customizable 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 be given. That being said, we do assume you are already aware of the standard foods to watch out for when shopping. Those include bread, pasta, soy sauce, and much more. It is your responsibility to recognize these sources of gluten.
Other allergies & intolerances: Our meals focus on fresh, in season, everyday ingredients. That sometimes includes dairy, nuts, eggs, nightshades and other trigger foods.
With everything being customizable and you shopping for your own ingredients, you may find Eat Better Dinners works for you, but we don’t specifically cater to any other preference besides gluten.
