My sister-in-law recently asked me to help her come up with some new dinner recipes. She was just “out of ideas” and with her kids heading back to school, she also was having a mental roadblock with her meal planning. This scenario is exactly what got Plan to Eat set on creating and designing monthly challenges for our users. As much as we love recipes, meal creation, and meal planning, we wanted to share some of that love with our users in the easiest way possible: a month of recipes and tricks to making this whole thing a bit easier.

I began scrolling through all of my recipes in my Recipe Book, to help design some meal ideas for her, I found myself sticking to recipes I knew were easy, quick, healthful, and family friendly. Nearly all the recipes I chose for her were from our previous challenges. Make Ahead from January, One Pot Meals from April, and Grill It from May helped me create pretty outstanding menus for my sister as she gets ready to go back to work (she’s a teacher) and send her kids back to school. I shared these in my Week One blog post, but I want to share them again because I personally found them so helpful. I know they help you in your back to school planning too:
