Our plans are versatile and follow a Flexitarian Diet which is more of a “lifestyle” than a diet making it a simple & achieveable way of modifying your diet.
It’s based on the following principles:
- Eat mostly vegetables, legumes, whole grains and fruits.
- Focus on protein from plants over animal protein.
- Be flexible. If desired, incorporate meat and animal products from time to time.
- Eat less processed foods and the most natural form of foods.
- Limit added sugar and sweets.
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?

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 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. The goal is “delicious & nutritious”.
I follow a Flexitarian approach. It is a healthy lifestyle option rather than a diet and is a very flexible and achievable way to adjust what you’re eating. Essentially you’re making the vegetables and other protein sources more interesting and appealing and eating less meat. To what degree is your choice.
The Flexitarian Diet was created by dietitian Dawn Jackson Blatner to help people reap the benefits of vegetarian eating while still enjoying animal products in moderation.
The Flexitarian Diet may benefit your health and the environment. A review of the research on the sustainability of plant-based diets found that switching from the average Western diet to flexitarian eating, where meat is partially replaced by plant foods, could decrease greenhouse gas emissions by 7% (
As a result of my experiences, I understand the variety of needs and know the challenges of figuring out what to eat 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 planing & 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?”
