Meal planning

Meal Prep Made Simple

I remember visiting my sister in Washington state the year before Ziggy was born, and seeing their weekly menu board hung in their dining room. My thought was, “wait, you guys really know what you’re going to eat every day of every week…like all the time? Who does that?!”

It’s funny how things change, because part of my career now is teaching others how to simplify nutrition, meal planning and meal prep. LOL! Incredible how things can shift, right?!

Becoming a mom taught me that time is more valuable than ever, and I continue to be on a mission to maximize it. Meal planning and prepping became one of those things that has done just that.

By carving out a little bit of time, one day a week, (I’m talking an hour) to prep what I have planned for the week, I suddenly find I don’t have excuses to eat crap (or skip) lunch, I don’t walk around hangry and irritable, and I save so.much.time in the long run.

Meal Prep

Pro tip: Hit the #easybutton by preparing the same thing for breakfast and lunch each week. This makes it easy to shop for, easy to plan and easy to throw together. Then, every week, switch it up so that you don’t get bored!

One of my favorite ways to get some easy lunch prep on is by making mason jar salads. It took me a while to get on the mason jar salad train...maybe because they are trendy and I'm not?! Ha! But it turns out I LOVE LOVE LOVE these!  Super easy, practical and delish. This can be done with any combination of ingredients, and I’m sharing a little tutorial and a favorite recipe right HERE.

What kind of results can I expect? 


Aghhhh where do I begin?!  It is not uncommon for people to experience any combination of the following by incorporating more plant based foods into their diet:

Physically >>  Lost weight/inches, lowered blood pressure, lowered blood sugar, lowered cholesterol, balanced hormones, healthier hair & nails, healthier skin, lessened joint pain,  regulated bowels

Mentally>>  Eliminated brain fog, increased energy, clearer thinking, overall sense of happiness, regained sense of control, reduced anxiety/depression 

Another huge perk?  You'll likely find you are saving money by eating more meals at home, having a plan, incorporating more plant-based proteins, and have an overall lower grocery bill!


What’s Included



Each week, you will receive (5) new recipes.  (1) breakfast, (1) lunch, (3) dinner.  If you feel like the lunch recipe would make a good dinner, or the breakfast recipe a good lunch, etc, by all means, do your thing!  


Expect these to be simple -- there is NO need to over-complicate things!  We include only what you need to know to get the end result (a fab meal). No fluff.  

Macro Breakdown

Each recipe with include a list of macronutrients -- these are the essential and bulk nutrients (protein, fat & carbohydrates) the body requires on the daily  for growth, energy, and health.  I will also include fiber sources, as these are essential for optimal health and vitality!  

Grocery List

Every week is complete with a grocery list, organized by section, to streamline and simplify your shopping experience.  Can I get a hell yeah?! 

Pantry Staples

These are things that may, or may not, already be staples to your pantry (or fridge/freezer).  Not to worry, as you will begin to slowly accumulate ingredients that you will use over and over again! Be prepared to stock some flavorful and nutrient dense staples to your pantry, fridge and freezer!  


Grocery lists note #easybutton hacks where appropriate.  These are great options for people who are busy, want to cut down on prep time, or who value convenience over budget.  Use these as you see fit!

Why aren't there enough recipes for 3 meals per day, 7 days per week?

Because many of them would go to waste!  We generally tend to bite off more than we can chew (figuratively and literally, ha!)  Plus, not every {one} body thrives from a 100% plant-based diet.  This is about beginning to layer in some more plant-centered meals,  all while keeping you out of overwhelm and into action!  

When will I receive my first meal plan?

Access to your first meal plan is available immediately upon enrollment.  Yay!

 What kind of recipes can I expect?  

100% of the recipes included in the program are plant-centered.  While not all bodies thrive from a 100% plant-based diet, ALL bodies benefit from incorporating MORE plants!  This is an awesome way to incorporate more veggies into your diet, try new foods, and improve your health, energy and vitality.  If you are looking for bland, tasteless meals, this will NOT be your jam.  

What is the cost?  

Membership is only $25/month!  To put this into perspective, you can take back your life and radiate health and happiness for less than the cost of…

1 Starbucks per week

7 Things You Can Do Today to Improve Your Health

We tend to over complicate what it takes to live a truly vibrant life.  There are simple shifts you can make beginning TODAY that will greatly impact your ability to increase energy, improve digestion, manage weight, improve skin, hair & nails, and begin to feel FAB!



#1: Drink your h2o!

Did you know that you should be drinking approximately HALF of your body weight, in ounces each day?  Yup!  So, let's say you weigh 160 pounds.  Divide that number in half and you'll calculate 80 ounces each day. 

Having a hard time getting it in?  Start by adding 12 ounces each week until you hit your goal!  Maybe even try drinking your water out of a wine glass ;)


#2: Cut the crap out of your coffee & tea

We live in a highly caffeinated world!!  Coffee does get a bad rap.  Almost always, it's not so much the coffee as it is all the CRAP we put into our coffee!  This means no flavored creamers.  No sugar.  No half and half.  Opt for your unsweetened milk of choice, 1 tsp honey or pure maple syrup, or {gasp!}, black.


#3: Sleep!

For many of us, this is easier said than done. But if you’re constantly tired, your body is going to look for energy, usually in the form or sugar, refined or processed carbohydrates or caffeine. Aim for 7-9 hours of zzzzzz's consistently.  

#4:  Check Your Protein, Healthy Fat & Fiber

This dynamic trio helps to slow the absorption of sugar into the bloodstream.  The slower the release, the less the spike!  Not eating the right combo can lead to cravings. When I work with clients we find just the right sweet spot for protein, the right fats, and fiber intake so they feel satisfied.

#5: Get your label reading on

Understanding what you put into your body is essential to your health and well being.  Get in the habit of incorporating more plants (fruits, veg, nuts, seeds, legumes, beans, unprocessed whole grains) and fewer foods made in plants (dairy, breads, cereals, processed foods) You ARE what you eat!


#6: Move Yo’self

Movement is another kind of food for your body. It releases stress, makes you feel great and look great. When you don’t get enough, the body starts to look for other ways to blow off steam, like binging on Snickers bars, wine or having no patience with your kids.


#7:  Head into each week with a PLAN!  

Fail to plan, plan to fail, right?!  I work with clients to consider how this all fits in - with family, friends, holidays, parties, otherwise, you may feel like you have to choose between your health plan and living your life.  And that’s not sustainable!    


The key is to do these things consistently.  Not for a just a day, a week, or a month.  Begin to layer them in and make them your way!
