Introduction to the Once A Month Meals Traditional Meal Plan

Welcome to the Once A Month Meals Traditional Meal Plan

The Traditional Meal Plan is the original Once A Month Meals Meal Plan. It is our longest running meal plan and often our most popular.  The original intent is still the same: that the “traditional” or “average American” family gets to the dinner table together. It is full of family-friendly recipes and comfort foods, but this goes way beyond casseroles. We aren’t too fussy about this meal plan, but we do try to provide you with a wide variety of options while making meal planning simple and convenient. To that end, you will find each meal plan has 15 dinner recipes. 

Types of Food Included:

This meal plan will include classics such as lasagna and chicken pot pie. We will also try to spice it up sometimes, but not too much so that everyone can enjoy it! We base all of our meal plans on seasonal produce and sales so that you can have the best flavor at the best prices. As this meal plan is for the “average” family, we aim to keep it budget-friendly, so you will not see expensive specialty items here. We also value your time, so if there is a convenient store-bought option, we will use that instead of cooking every item from scratch.

Here are some examples of main ingredients you will see on this meal plan:

  • Seasonal produce
  • Meats – mainly chicken, beef, and pork, and occasionally seafood
  • Pasta, rice, and other hearty grains like oats
  • Legumes (we will use canned beans for convenience)
  • All-purpose flour and white sugar for baked goods
  • Eggs
  • Dairy
  • Pantry staples such as packaged mixes, soups, broth, and sauces

Types of Food NOT Included:

We really aren’t too picky when it comes to the Traditional meal plan. We try to provide healthy, balanced meals, but there really aren’t any restrictions here. If your family has any food restrictions, please take a look at one of the other meal plans we offer for various health needs.
