You're in your car on your way home from your 9-5, your evening's schedule on the brain and no idea what's for dinner. Your family and an empty fridge are waiting for you at home so you hit the drive-thru . . . again!?!
Or maybe you've given into hotdogs at the ballpark. Or ordering the third crappy pizza this week. I get it. There's so much to balance when it comes to meal-time that sometimes budget and hunger and kids' opinions about food and a myriad of other things overrides nutrition. You'll feed them better tomorrow night - or next week - or sometime, but not tonight.
Do you know that most parents say the time after work – that is, the dinner-time, bed-time hustle is the most stressful part of their day? That's right – more stressful than any of their work hours.
You're tired from your day and the last thing you want to do is figure out something nutritious to feed the family. Dinner-time is what they refer to when they say adulting sucks. (Well, that and bills).
I'm right there with you. I've studied nutrition. I know that it effects every aspect of my kids' mental and physical well-being AND YET . . . I can't tell you how many times I've been in that EXACT SAME PREDICAMENT.
And I'll tell you what I did in the most stressful months. I got ORGANIZED! And I want to help you do the same. Allow me to introduce you to
Strategeats™ is a strategy for eating well and feeding your family the way you really intend to.
Think about one of those rare days when you planned ahead and had a roast in the crockpot when you left for work in the morning. How you went about your day feeling somehow more accomplished and put together. Or think about that time you had your veggies chopped up in baggies in the fridge and ready for everyone to grab as a healthy snack on their way out the door in the morning.
Don't you just love that feeling?
A way for you to be THAT mom you secretly want to be. The one who feels organized and put-together and knows she is doing good at the fundamental tasks of feeding her family well!
Well, you're in luck because I have developed a plan for you to feed your family every dinner for 28 days. Meals like tacos, pork chops, pasta dishes – things the whole family will love. Healthy meals. Comfort food. Family friendly dishes.
Imagine that say, next weekend you take a few hours to shop and get things for the 7 days to come (and beyond) in one shopping trip. As you shop for – say, a spice, or a meat, you'll know EXACTLY how much to grab to get you through the ENTIRE month! No waste. No spur-of-the-moment grocery aisle decision-making. It might cost a little more in that first shopping trip, but you'll know its because you're preparing for meals to come all month long and know that in the long run you're saving SO MUCH money. Spending less on impulse buys and last-minute meals eaten out. Buying lettuce that you'll be eating and NOT throwing out next week.
Now imagine that this shopping list is in order. How organized will you feel going to the grocery store with a list! And that list has all of the produce items grouped together. All of the meat items grouped together. For the first time in a long time, you won't feel like a hot mess criss-crossing the store with your grocery cart.
And it gets even better . . . the list is layed out so you get your cold stuff last! No walking around with dairy products or frozen food for the duration of the shopping trip.
How organized would you feel? Doesn't that feel more like the mom you want to be.
And then when you get home with your groceries, I will have a step-by-step guide for you to get as much done as you can before the crazy week starts. You will cook your meat in one sitting. Things like tacos, enchiladas, and taco soup will be cooked almost to completion together. Maybe you'll have tacos tonight, then sometime next week, you'll see enchiladas on your list and know that meal is practically done for you. A few minutes of assembly and plop it in the oven. 35 minutes later, you'll have the kind of family meal you always pictured. So simple and easy. A week later, you'll have an even quicker evening when you come home to add a couple of cans of food to your pre-cooked taco soup meat.
And that's not all. We'll bake all your chicken together and use it to make both Chicken Florentine and Chicken Cacciatore in quickly assembled meals when the day comes to serve it. We cook our steak together for Fajitas AND Beef Stroganoff.
You will know that you are creating positive memories around food. Your kids will be developing the kind of good eating habits you always imagined for them. They'll call you when they're adults and ask for these recipes. Just the way you pictured that your grown kids would do. You will be so glad you made the decision to purchase this meal plan today.
✅ This program is for you if you want to offer your family healthier options than the typical American diet. Do you get excited at the idea of offering vegetables at EVERY meal? You will also be introducing your kids to a variety of foods like fish and vegetarian dishes to expand their palate. (Remember when you sit down to these meals, that it is your job to offer the nutritious food to your kids at mealtimes, not to force them to eat it). They will grow up being much more open to healthy options thanks to your decision to buy this plan.
✅ This program is NOT for you if you are looking for gluten-free, dairy-free, meat-free, or anything-free eating. Yes, there are HEALTHIER meal plans out there (Click here to see some). This is not about eating CLEAN or cutting carbs or incorporating every super food on the market. Strategeats™ is about a balanced approach to feeding your kids at mealtime. This is about introducing your kids to healthier options and creating positive dinnertime memories.
✅ This program is for your average mom trying to do a better-than-average job of getting food on the table every night. I described a working mom above, because I've been a single working mom for the last fourteen years. But this program is for stay-at-home moms, too. You're as busy as anybody else – especially if you've got littles running around. This is a program ALL moms and even dads will appreciate and come back to for years to come. I know I have. I created this plan for my own family almost 20 years ago and we repeat it TO THIS DAY about once or twice every year. My now 15 and 18-year-old sons grew up on these meals and know how to prepare some of them on their own. Will you be able to say the same about your grown kids? I hope so!
