Create Your Own Easy Meal Planner at
by: Michelle Dunst

Thinking about what to cook for each meal day after day becomes a chore after a while. Being able to easily create a meal planner with a lot of inputs in terms of recipes and information is, therefore, a real help. provides this, making it a favorite online hangout of mine.

One of the problems I always have when deciding what to prepare for a meal is the fact that after a while, the family gets tired of having the same dishes over and over again. Although there will always be perennial favorites, having new recipes would definitely perk up their appetites.

What I like about is that it has all the classic Filipino dishes while also having recipes for new variations on traditional recipes as well as totally new dishes from familiar Filipino ingredients. This makes Filipino homecooking really exciting. This isn’t surprising at all since Lutongbahay is the Filipino word for homecooking.

Lutongbahay has recipes for more than just Filipino food, though. There are international dishes, as well. Some may have long been integrated into the Filipino palate but others are new – to me, at least. I may have heard of some but have never tried them before. Others are totally new to me but they seem to be worth trying. This is also a boon for meal planning. I can alternate Filipino dishes with other international dishes to create real variety.

With the sheer volume of recipes available at, covering every meal and even snacks and desserts, I have so much to choose from for my meal planner. I may never have to repeat a dish for months.

The fact that recipes are categorized according to their main ingredient is also convenient. In planning a weekly menu, I like to alternate main dishes of beef, fish, chicken, pork and other seafood. Of course, there will always be vegetables for every meal. I can just assign a main ingredient for each day of the week and then browse through that category to pick a dish I fancy. I then pick a suitable vegetable side dish for it if it does not already include vegetables.

Having a meal planner prevents me from going into a panic when I run out of time in a day. Without a meal plan, I would just tend to grab whatever is available and these are usually canned food or instant meals. Sometimes the family would have to resort to ordering fastfood for home delivery. That is not a healthy habit.

With a meal planner, I can buy all my ingredients for the week and even do preliminary preparations during the weekend in order to cut down on my cooking time each day. It is more systematic and organized, while ensuring that I prepare healthy balanced meals for all of us.

I like the fact that I can easily print out my meal planners for each week. I can then compile them in a folder that I keep in the kitchen. I could also easily take out the pages to take with me when I go to the supermarket to buy ingredients for the week.
