Getting healthy dinners on the table just got a little easier makes healthy dinner planning a breeze

Swampscott, MA (August 23, 2010) – Getting healthy dinners on the table just got a little easier with the re-launch of the meal planning site, On the newly revised site, users will be able to access the tools and inspiration they need to start planning and cooking healthful meals.

Powered by two nutrition experts and self-proclaimed foodies, features timely nutrition articles, hundreds of healthy recipes, weekly blog entries, and a weekly menu.

“Our ultimate goal is to make it easy for people to prepare healthful meals at home,” says co-founder Krisha McCoy.

A key feature of the new site is the free weekly menu that users can download.  The menu includes five dinner recipes with side suggestions and nutrition information, diabetic exchanges, and a categorized grocery shopping list. Using the menu can help save you time and money, and can help you manage your weight without dieting.

“Our weekly menu is a wonderful tool to help people integrate these new recipes into their life” says co-founder Maria Adams. “It takes a lot of time to scour through magazines, cookbooks, and websites in search of new recipes to try, and then to plan a week’s worth of meals and make a grocery list.” This is where CooksAid comes in, according to Adams: “With a click of a button you can have a new weekly dinner menu and grocery list every Friday. All you have to do is hit the grocery store.”

Yet another plus of these menus is the variety of foods that they introduce. “Most people have a limited repertoire of recipes that they prepare, but with CooksAid’s weekly menu you will be cooking different dinners every night and every week,” says McCoy.

Maria Adams is a registered dietitian who has worked as a clinical dietitian and has written numerous health and nutrition articles for both print and online publications. She completed her undergraduate work in nutrition at Cornell University and earned Master’s degrees in Nutrition Communication and Public Health from Tufts University. She is a mom of two little boys who inspire and challenge her creative thinking in the kitchen on a daily basis.

Krisha McCoy is an accomplished health and medical writer who earned a Master’s degree in Nutrition Communication from Tufts University’s Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy and completed her undergraduate work in Nutritional Sciences at the University of Texas at Austin. She has two young children, and enjoys trying out healthful and kid-friendly new recipes on them.
