Seriously, stop it.
I know you've been told that weekly meal planning is the only way to meal plan, but is it really?
And does it actually save you any time?
I know you've tried all the tricks - from crockpot freezer meals to extreme couponing. You've even tried pre-done meal plans and those meal delivery services.
But you still end up ordering take-out.
...the power of minimalism in the kitchen.
I know, it's counter-intuitive. How can you make more dinners with fewer ingredients???
You can. It's easy. Let me show you.
As a mom, you can totally be in control of your family's dinners (without planning every week, being a good cook, or stocking your kitchen like a grocery store!).
I used to spend hours creating the perfect meal plan…just to have to re-do it again the following week.
And the next week.
And the next week.
The cycle seemed endless.
Like laundry (which also totally makes me want to hide and snack!)
And that, my friend, is why I created a new way to meal plan.
I realized I was just doing it all on Sunday instead of spreading it out during the week. I wasn't actually saving myself any time!
So I’ve spent years researching, trying, researching some more, and tweaking. I finally have peace and balance in my meal planning routine and I want you to have that too.
I’ll be with you every step of the way.
Before I was a work-at-home single mom, I was a working-full-time single mom. If I can do it, you can too!
...to get back to Family Dinner with everyone sitting at the table together, talking and laughing about their day.
...to feed them wholesome, healthy, non-processed food, that they love.
...to stop ordering take-out or grabbing pre-made meals as a last minute resort.
...to spend less time (and money!) in the grocery store, and spend it instead with the thing I love most: my family.
…having a set number of ingredients in your kitchen that you mix + match to create your favorite meals.
You use that plan for a month. Then the next month. And the next month.
Then you switch it up (it’s probably a new season by then anyway!).
Everyone else gives you recipes and pre-done meal plans, and that might hold your life together for a bit, but that's not going to help you long term. And it's certainly not going to help with keeping you organized and balancing your life.
You need a system. You don't need more recipes.
Choose your plan below and get started on simplifying your meal planning, and in turn, your day-to-day life!
This program is designed to eliminate your stress in the kitchen so you can be the organized & peaceful mom you know you can be.
IT IS for moms who want to feed their family natural – and maybe organic – food but still want to be budget-conscious.
IT IS for women who have limited space in their kitchen and don’t need a pantry full of food.
IT IS for wives who want to extend their minimalistic lifestyle to extend into the kitchen and meal time.
IT IS for women who want to be environmentally and ethically conscious about food waste.
IT IS for moms who don’t want to be overwhelmed with options and aren’t trying to keep up with the Pinterest-Perfect moms.
Who is the best fit for the Capsule Pantry Blueprint?
This program is the best fit for 3 types of people. If you are the type of mom that…
1. ...has picky eaters, kids with food allergies or sensitivities, or are dealing with special diets.
2. ...just doesn’t have time and you’re sick and tired of the daily hamster wheel of dinnertime.
3. ...has limited space in your kitchen and don’t need your pantry to look like a full service grocery store.
Most importantly, it’s for moms who don’t want to be overwhelmed with options and aren’t trying to keep up with the Pinterest-Perfect moms.
What if it doesn’t work for my family?
First, I have to say if you do the work and it doesn’t work, it’s on me and I’ll make it right. Or I’ll give you your money back within 90 days - just email my team at firstname.lastname@example.org with the work you’ve completed and they’ll handle it for you.
If you don’t do the work - well then there’s no way it can work, right?
Second, if you have a unique family - food allergies or sensitivities, special diets, picky eaters - this IS for you. Remember, I created this method because I had two very different kids at very different stages - one was a picky tween and the other was a baby with severe food allergies and sensitivities. When you focus on the common foods that everyone can eat and start there, you create a custom plan specifically for your family. And you don’t make multiple dinners!
How much time will it take me to complete and see results?
The lessons are short and sweet and the time it takes you to do the exercises is up to you. You do not have to go through the entire course to see results - some of the later modules and lessons are there to help you review at the end of your quarter.
I’ve had some students take it, make decisions quickly, and run with it after a couple of days of working on the course.
How much money will I save doing this?
There is no magic number, and I would never promise something like “do this and feed your family for $30/week!” Honestly, I cannot stand that mentality. Your food bill is (and should be!) your second highest bill in your budget. Choosing health over saving money is always a good decision.
Now I will say that a great side-effect of this program is saving money because you’re choosing to be intentional with what you buy, and you’re making sure you use it. And I imagine having a complete back-up plan will prevent you from ordering takeout or drive-thru last minute!
Can’t I just figure this out on my own?
Yes, of course! This isn’t brain surgery, it’s meal planning! It’s just going to cost you time. You get to decide what your time is worth and what you want to spend your time doing. Also consider how much you LIKE doing those things. If you love cooking and planning and perusing cookbooks for new recipes, maybe this course isn’t for you. But if you don’t like doing those things (and you’re not going to hire a personal chef, ha) then this method will let you still get dinner on the table but create time freedom for you to do the things you DO want to spend your time on.
For example, if given the choice between hiring someone to do my laundry or clean my house - I’m going to choose clean my house because I hate it more than laundry.
Each day you postpone signing up for this program is another day you miss out on having fun with your family. Having that easy evening where dinner gets made, clean up gets done, and you can do something together. Instead of waiting for bedtime so you can have a glass of wine!
What happens when I sign up?
You’ll get access immediately and you'll also get a welcome email a few minutes later that will give you the link to the course again (through MemberVault). You’ll find that the course itself and the bonuses will all be there in your specific profile.
What happens if I fall behind?
Life happens! But I encourage you to not try and make your meal plan or your learning this system perfect. Trying to make it perfect the first time around is NOT going to serve you.
Make it quick & dirty and then at the end of the quarter you can review what worked and what didn’t and use that knowledge to create your second capsule.
Remember, you have lifetime access to this material so if you do get stuck, you can always go back to that specific part and have a re-do!
