The dreaded what to make for dinner question plagues the best of us—even top chefs (at least this is what we tell ourselves). When brushing your teeth in the morning, the last thing you're probably thinking of is what to have for dinner, you're still thinking where's my breakfast at, right? If you're anything like us, you won't actually have their meals planned and prepped for the entire week (but if you do, we envy you) and this meal guide will come in handy.

Full of winter warmers, this list of quick meals is perfect for those times when you've accidentally worked overtime and couldn't think of a thing worse than standing over a stove with a wooden spoon. Kid-friendly with vegetarian options, you can pick and choose from this guide or work your way through the month day by day—all you have to do is start making magic in the kitchen. From quinoa sushi to Korean barbecue bowls, we have planned a healthy meal for every night of the month for you and your family to enjoy—you're welcome.
