One of the main challenges faced in the majority of households is figuring out what to eat.
Hate planning or too busy?
I’ll share a meal plan for the week, just pop those into your Cookidoo and your grocery list will be sorted. You will be getting full recipes (with pictures too) nutritional information and all sorts of tips.
All you have to do is add the menu to your Cookidoo, shop, prep, and eat. No strain on your brain!
Feeling Bloated and Sluggish?
Maybe you’re eating too much packaged junk food? No worries. These meals are made with clean and lean ingredients that will help you eat right and give you loads of energy.
All my meals are nutrition-focused meals. Nourishing and delicious meals that are fuelling your body with what it needs to thrive.
Bored and Craving Variety?
I’ve got you covered with new recipe inspiration each week. New recipes each week with guidance on how to swap out things if needed to accommodate food allergies and preferences. You’ll be discovering so many different ways to cook your food and loving it!
In a Rush?
Most recipes in our meal plans are cooked in less than 30 minutes, except for a few slow cooker meals (available on the TM6) but other options will be given too. We will suggest a few prep ideas that will keep the week night routine time simpler eg some pantry staples that can be done in the weekend.
Looking for simplicity when satisfying your needs and those of your family?
Using the screen guided cooking function on your Thermomix (TM5 and TM6) is next level. However, if you have the TM31 model you can still use Cookidoo – you will just need to work off your chosen device to follow the recipe.
Almost all the ingredients can be found at the average grocery store but we will include tips for swaps and where to find any special ingredients if needed.
That’s why I created What’s for Dinner?

Sample Weeks Dinner Plans
I’m Steph Johnstone and I decided to start What’s for Dinner after eight years of being a Thermomix Consultant and hearing the repeated message that customers really didn’t enjoy the actual thinking about what to cook each day.
I’ve been vegetarian (since my teens) while my husband eats meat. My daughter is vegan and dairy-free & gluten-free for health reasons. I also have an autoimmune issue that I’ve managed to keep subclinical through diet to date.
I am passionate about colour on the plate – vegetables can be used in so many different ways so there are usually new and delicious options to try. Even the vegetables we turned our noses up to as a child.
Put simply, the vegetables are different colours for a reason. They all have valuable attributes and nutritional value for our bodies in terms of vitamins, minerals and fibre too. For these reasons and also from a sustainability aspect they are deserving of a higher profile, with meat not always being the prime focus of meals.
As a result of my experiences, I have an overall understanding of a variety of needs and know the challenges of figuring out what to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and even what to snack on, so that home life is happy, healthy and harmonious.
Having a Thermomix and Cookidoo are two pivotal ingredients. However, you can take things to a whole new level by adding some planning & prepping to the mix as I’ve found from my experience. I would love to share with you and enable you to benefit from what I’ve learnt on my journey.
This is my solution to that inevitable question heard in all households of “What’s for Dinner?”
What some of our participants say…
Maggie (TM5 Owner)
Being invited to be part of Stephanie’s Planning sessions were the impetus I needed to start using my Thermomix for meals, rather than the little things like stock for example.
Stephanie is thoroughly conversant with how Cookidoo works and the explanations as to how to use this for everyday planning. This has made for a far easier week of meals, instead of getting to 4 pm and asking, what do you want for dinner!
Caroline (TM31 Owner and since upgraded to the TM6)
I work full time and live with my husband and 2 teenage boys that eat A LOT.
I tried Marley Spoon and Hello Fresh for a period of time, which was good as I didn’t have the worry of not having the correct ingredients to make a meal as everything was in the bag. But after a period of time I didn’t feel it was our healthiest option and we got bored with the menu options.
So when I got hold of Cookidoo and did Steph’s planning online I really felt way more in control of exactly what we wanted to eat.
Steph made it so easy to plan for the week and what a nice feeling to go through the day not wondering what we would be having for dinner. It was planned and the shopping list was on my Cookidoo app on my phone so made life more stress free.
Louisa (TM5 Owner)
I really enjoyed the What’s for Dinner workshop I did with Steph.
Being a busy business owner, wife & mother, there’s always a lot to do and think about! That’s why I loved being part of this group. We would discuss and plan meals together, share tips and what meals were winners for the family.
Steph was really friendly, helpful and organised. Her added tips and focus on wellbeing gave me a sense of comfort when selecting meals to plan for my family for the week ahead.
I learned how to use Cookidoo more effectively and came to the realisation that with a bit of guidance meal planning was so much quicker and easier to achieve.
It took the pain out of the planning process!!
The group dynamic was fun to be a part of and I didn’t want it to finish.
Alison (TM5 Owner)
I would describe myself as a very satisfied client. Working with Stephanie to increase my use of my Thermomix was everything she promised and more.
My Cookidoo App is now front and centre on my phone. I plan weekly and use the shopping list option all the time. Thank you Steph for your guidance. Very much appreciated.
