Recipe for a Successful Family Meal

  • 2 (or more) people to eat together and to participate in meal preparation
  • 1 week (at least) meal plan
  • 1 dozen (or more) simple recipes that you know how to make
  • 3 (or more) cooking strategies for efficient everyday meals (e.g., make in advance, freeze, slow-cooker)
  • enjoyable food
  • positive conversation
Combine good food and people. Let sit for at least 20 minutes. Reduce conflict. Increase connection. Use outside resources (e.g., help from others, meal sharing, take-out, menu planning services, etc.) when necessary.


Should be served at least 4 times per week for optimal results.
