Cook More.  Wing it Less! Meal Planning Basics

February 1 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Cook More.  Wing it Less!

Meal planning Basics
~ A Virtual workshop ~ 

Do you find yourself grappling each night with what to make for dinner?  

Are you exhausted from winging it?  From having to cook from zero after a long day?  

From spending too much of your energy finding meals that will make your family happy?    

It’s exhausting!

I know this hamster wheel SO WELL.  I’m chasing a toddler, running a business, and striving to be present for my partner.  I don’t feel like I’m doing anything 100%, and often making dinner is the last thing I want to do.

So, what I know AND experience every day is that solid, smart meal planning strategies can take you from dreading the kitchen to having easy and healthy options to grab for any meal of the day. This doesn’t require gourmet culinary mastery or making everything from scratch!


When it comes to feeding ourselves, flying by the seat of our pants gets:

  1. Expensive
  2. Repetitive (We eat the same thing over and over!) 
  3. Unhealthy
  4. Stressful

What if you could easily meal prep in advance so dinner takes 15 minutes instead of an hour and a half.  

What if you could quickly assemble whole food meals that offer flexibility both for busy schedules and for picky eaters? 

What if these strategies could save you money?   

While I’m running around chasing a to do list like the rest of you, I have also been teaching hundreds of folks like yourself how to meal plan.  I have worked one-on-one with over 50 private clients to support their making sustainable changes to their diets by elevating their culinary skills, planning to eat, and building healthy, solid pantries.

Yeah, yeah.  But stuff always comes up!

Look.  I am a chef.  I am comfortable in the kitchen, and there are nights that we eat frozen meals from Trader Joe’s.  It’s called life, and in life shit happens.

My philosophy – Plans are made.  Plans have to adapt.  How do I navigate then?

I work from a well stocked pantry, a fist full of easy, whole food recipes, and I have learned how to stock my freezer with “meals on the fly”.

This is what I can teach you!  Join me . . .
