Your 4-Week Dinner Plan for a Month of Healthy Dinners

Your 4-Week Dinner Plan for a Month of Healthy Dinners
Your Month of Dinners, Done!

What are you going to make for dinner tonight? Next week? If planning out your meals is a challenge, we've got you covered! We've planned 4 weeks of easy, healthy dinners featuring 28 new recipes from the September/October 2013 issue of EatingWell Magazine, plus serving suggestions to make a meal. Most of the weeknight meals are on the table in 45 minutes or less and with some batch cooking on the weekends, there are a few weeknights where you can just reheat and serve! Check out the links to our month of dinner recipes below or download our free, printable PDF of the plan, which you can hang in your kitchen so every night you'll know what's for dinner.
