let’s eat!

Here is a collection of my all time fave recipes to make.
I’ve organized them by category for you and if you’re visiting from my back to school blog post - you’ll find a section just for you at the bottom. Enjoy!

All of the recipes below along with hundreds more are stored in my fave online meal
planning database called Plan to Eat

You can easily save other recipes you find online, create a weekly meal plan using the recipes and then it will create a grocery list
for you based on the ingredients in the recipes 🙌

There’s a desktop + app version so you can access it on the go.

 CLICK HERE for a free 30 day trial.
If you love it, it's about $5 a month going forward
(but I would pay $100 a month for all the time it saves me)

I recorded the video below to show you how I use this app along with online grocery ordering to optimize health in my kitchen:

 

Here are my 3 simple ways to create a smooth cycle of healthy eating:

1. Every couple of months, I take an afternoon to build up a new/fresh library of recipes I want to make. You’ll see most of my faves down on this page.

2. I either print them out to save in a binder in my kitchen or keep them in my online recipe storage database Plan To Eat. PTE is my preferred way because not only can I save recipes online, but I can drag them into a meal plan calendar and from there ti creates a grocery list of all the ingredients needed.

3. Then I order my groceries online to be delivered or for quick pickup. I love this because it saves so much time and I can save the items I typically order each week If you're in Canada, here's $20 off your first online order from Loblaws:

Bonus Tip: Consider hiring someone once a week to pick up your grocery order, come to your home + do a day of meal prep.

The Healthy ‘Lunchable’ - great in planet boxes:

Option 2:
Tofu/Tempeh bites (protein), quinoa (protein), Red bell pepper slices with  Avocado hummus (fat), Apple slices, Superfood snack ball

Sandwiches + Wrap options: using either lettuce wraps, cucumber boats or sprouted/gluten free Food for Life brand wraps.
Typical grain bread are refined and stripped of their nutrients, then filled with sugar and other preservatives to keep them fresher longer. SPROUTED breads are significantly higher in protein, vitamins, enzymes and have a lower glycemic index, therefore keeping blood sugar more stable, and makes kids feel more satisfied.
