Rated 5 out of 5

I love fivedinners as it not only gives me great meal ideas but also sorts out most of my shopping list for me … it’s added variety to my family meal times and has given me the confidence to try different but easy to make foods during the week – thank you fivedinners !

Rated 5 out of 5

Fivedinners saved me in lockdown last year and I still keep coming back to it for meal planning and general inspiration. Planning what to cook day in, day out is really stressful so I’ve found this makes my life a lot easier. Kids love the recipes and even the veggie dishes get the thumbs up from meat-loving Dad!

Frequently asked questions

Live texting service! Seriously?

We spent a long time thinking about this! We asked ourselves what would be one thing that we would really, really, love and that was our own private chef!

Members get a mobile phone number that they can text questions or ask for help in real time. Theo is manning the phone every weekday between the hours of 5-7pm!

What are the meal plans and recipes like?

Our weekly meal plans offer a well balanced week of meals including a meat-free day, fish, meat and flexitarian options. Our recipes are developed and tested by us so we can ensure you are in safe hands. Inspired by cuisines from around the world, all of them are easy to make and we try to keep hands-on time to 20 minutes or less.

Do I have to use the meal plan every day?

No! Some members use our meal plans every day. Others dip in and out; making two or three day meal plans and love having the handy shopping list. You can skip days, swap meals, change servings sizes, even create your own perfect meal plan with our recipes.

Are the recipes healthy?

We believe in maintaining a well balanced diet with food being cooked with fresh, clean produce and avoiding processed ingredients.

How much does it cost?

Membership starts from £4.99 per month – and it pays for itself (plus extra) before we launched FiveDinners we meal planned for a few months and our shopping bill reduced by almost 50% (for us that was easily a saving of £100 per month).

Am I tied in forever? Is it as harsh as my gym membership? 🙂

No you’re not! You can cancel at anytime and there are no contracts – we’re here to make life easier for you.

Are the meal plans just for families?

No way! Whether you’re feeding just yourself, a couple or a family of four or ten, you can change the serving size on every recipe and we’ll automatically change the ingredients and shopping list for you!

By default all our recipes serve four.

I am Vegan, Flexitarian, Vegetarian…

All our recipes are organised by category so you can create your own bespoke meal plan and browse recipes that suit you; GF, dairy free, one-pot, vegetarian, family faves, quick, etc.

We also have a Flexitarian note on every recipe giving tips on how to change it to different diets.

So you choose what I’m eating every week? I mean I like it but..

We took the decision that most people might be like us; they just don’t want the headache of choosing what to cook each week – so we’re doing it for you!

Of course if you don’t fancy one week you can browse previous weeks meal plans or you can browse our recipes and create your own meal plan and we’ll automatically generate your shopping list – simples!
