Each of the four meal planners has five easy and tasty dinner recipes and a shopping list for the week that will feed four people for under $100 (excluding the staple items).
The meal planners are made to be zero waste – so all the ingredients you buy should be used by the end of the week, and we've also include tips for how to store and use up leftovers. They are created using spring produce but can be made at any time of the year with seasonal substitutions.
