The book is packed with nutritional information and substitution charts that will keep everyone at their best. And of course, all the meals will help your family maintain a healthy weight and a healthy body.

Dinner is a lot bigger than food. It’s about family, health—both physical and spiritual—economics, commitment, time and your sanity. And whether you love or hate to cook, chances are you really don’t like it much during the workweek.

But what if everything was organized for you, from shopping lists to 10 weeks of meals? What if you could involve everyone in the process, from choosing menus to helping get food to the table? What if each meal just took as little as 20 minutes to prepare?

Meal planner and mother of seven Sandi Richard will help you achieve dinner hour, without stress and struggle. She will free you from your feelings of guilt over falling into the take-out trap—and show you how to plan, shop, prep and cook fantastic-looking and -tasting meals that even a picky 6-year-old will like.
