30 Meals in One Day Review & Giveaway

Product:  Dinner is Ready Cookbook & 30 Meals in One Day Software Program

Description:  If you struggle with answering the question of what's for dinner tonight I have a solution for you!  I was given the opportunity to try out the 30 Meals in One Day  program.  It consists of the Dinner is Ready book that guides you along the way of freezer cooking plus has over 150 dinner recipes.  It will be a while before we try them all!  The program also includes the 30 Meals in One Day Software Program which helps you generate a shopping list from the meals you've picked out.

Price:  Dinner is Ready Book and software combo retail value is $40 and you can order online at 30 Meals in One Day for $32.

My Review:  My family does pretty well at menu planning, but we typically don't plan further ahead than a week and things still come up where we have to divert from our plan.  That's where 30 Meals in One Day steps in and with one day of work we can prepared when plans suddenly change.  The Dinner is Ready book has instructions that are easy to follow.  It truly guides you along the way.  I also love that gives you additional options if you can't dedicate an entire day to cooking meals you can still utilize the program.  I like that you can add your own favorite receipes to the software program.  We do have favorite meals that we like to eat regularly.  There is also a good deal of variety in the Dinner is Ready book - you'll find recipes for beef, chicken, cheese, tuna and more using multiple methods of prep from your slow cooker to your oven.  The recipes are simple to follow, but still have plenty of flavor!

Ready to Try It:  Visit 30 Meals in One Day.  If you order the Dinner is Ready Book and Software combo then win this giveaway - your order will be refunded or you'll be sent an additional set.

  1. Oh my gosh, I'm first! I tried this concept about 18yrs ago and loved having things ready everyday. And because things would come up and we weren't always home, our freezer was full for lots longer than 30days. This program sounds so much user/family friendly than what I used all those years ago (without a computer). I like the idea of having the computer generated shopping list and being able to incorporate family favorites. Hope I win! I already subscribe and "like" you on facebook too!

  7. I'd like to try On the Side. I usually prepare our meats simply like grilling but it seems like I keep serving the same side dishes over & over.

  29. I would love the Dinner is Ready book and disc. This would be so wonderful to have. I have a almost 6 month old, a 8 year old and my hubby and it is getting harder and harder to have dinner ready for the two older guys by 6 when I don't get home until 5:15!
