Mastering Meal Planning: Solving the “What’s for Dinner” Challenge
We’ve all been there – what I call, “The 5 p.m. Freakout.” You realize that you have three potential menu options at home, but you’re missing key ingredients in all three. Out comes the takeout menu. Again. You want to plan meals, but figuring out that process is just another flippin’ thing on your to-do list.
You’ve heard the research: Planning and prepping meals at home will save you time, money, help you eat more healthfully and can bring your family together. But it’s almost impossible to prep healthy meals every day with zero plan in place. The fix? Creating and following a simple system to use over and over again. Meal planning gets easier every week when you’ve got a system. The result? You provide delicious, healthful foods for your family without getting frustrated, overwhelmed, or stressed out. Sound too good to be true? It’s not. Come find out how.
- How meal planning can reduce your stress and help you reach your health and fitness goals, while saving you time and money
- How to develop good menu planning habits
- Resources that simplify the meal planning process
- Tips and tricks for maximizing your efficiency at the market and in the kitchen
- How to stock your kitchen for quick and healthy meals in a pinch
You’ll take home:
- All the tools to start planning your meals immediately, including a handy checklist and template to get you started
- A bonus, done-for-you weekly meal plan with recipes and a shopping list

Hey there! If you take a look below, you’ll see my last post here was quite a while ago . . . wondering what I’m up to lately? Check out my latest gig!

I’m not going to lie. I can get crazy around sweets. Sugar does bad things to my joints, though – once I started down the anti-inflammatory diet road, I noticed that when I went on a sugar bender (which USED to be a fairly regular occurrence), I’d get all swollen and achy again. So I revised my position on stevia and started to use it to get my “fix” once in a while. And I’m proud to say that I’m not nearly as beholden to the sweet stuff as I used to be – cutting down on carbohydrates generally and upping my protein has evened me out enough that I don’t have those highs and lows that left me trolling the cupboards for ages-old Halloween leftovers.

So. It’s February, and your resolution zest might be waning . . . or even more likely, gone by the wayside altogether. It’s so common. I know, you were fired up for change, but then life got rolling again post-holidays and so many things got in your way . . . work, kids back to school and schedules, horrendous viruses. Life.

This is stupid easy, makes a ton, and is flexible – so you can tweak this according to your tastes . . . want to crank up the heat? Add cayenne pepper. Want to lighten it up a bit? Use ground turkey, or a combo of ground beef & turkey. Have veg you want to use up? Chop it up and throw it in. Love beans? They’d be great in here too. Whatever you do, make this soon – it’s tasty & quick & feeds a crowd. [Read more →]

I love my workout time. It’s MY time, alone in my head with my crazy hip hop/pop soundtrack blaring in my ears . . . or to chat it up with my heavily tattooed buddies over weights at the gym. But my 10-year-old daughter loves to work out too, and guess what? She loves the same music I do (not sure what that says about me, but that’s for another post). So on weekends and vacations, we strike an accord: I go to the gym to lift, then come home to do HIIT cardio drills with her. [Read more →]
