The Summer Meal Plan: It’s Here!

The Simply Real Health Summer Meal Plan// Simply Real Health


The season of refreshing salads, cooling soups, grilled main dishes + picnic style deli salads. With a big glass of chilly rose and hot strawberry crumble. Being with the people you love.

Outdoor dining. Food that’s easy. Fresh. Portable. Amazing testing. But not at all fussy.

Welcome to summer. In my head, at least.

Otherwise known as the best thing ever.

For all typical reasons, yes. Better weather, more daylight, more options.


Let’s be honest. It’s mostly about the food.

To eat lighter but feel just as satisfied. To feel great so that you can enjoy all the beauty that summer brings- more light, more energy, more active time, more time outside, more time with friends and family. The time to enjoy. To celebrate. To be more fully living, free and happy.

All while being in your bathing suit.

Wait… what?


For real.

It’s a funny little combo, ain’t it?

Which is also why it makes it one of the best times of the year to get your act together.

Look at it this way: You have more free time. More hours in the day. Maybe even people coming over for dinner at the last minute. More circumstances to have wine and dessert every night if you wanted to.

Oh. And add in the same old freaking recipes or bad summer habits like cheese and crackers, chips and salsa, or ice cream for dinner. [Which is great. Some days. But not those that include spontaneous bathing suit outings].

Summer can get out of control if you’re not just as mindful and aware. Unless you have some sort of plan in place for all of the days, nights, and times when the fun + social stuff is not happening. I honestly think it’s one of the biggest keys to successful healthy eating, in a lifestyle kind of way.

Yes, you can participate in anything you want to. But there are so many more times – your daily breakfasts and lunches, let’s say. One or two dinners at home per week. Times when eating healthy can easily be a default. But, you gotta have a plan. Otherwise it just won’t happen.

So. All this to say. My FAVORITE season of the meal plan is out. Now. Ready for you.

So that your life can look like this:

Go to the store 1x/week. Cook 3 hours [or less] per week.

Eat amazing tasting food all week. That also happens to be healthy.  And seasonal [read: less expensive, colorful + healthier for you]. And different than your 5 recipe dinner rut rotation. Plus. You get to feel awesome. So there’s that. Side note: All bathing suits look awesome when you feel awesome. That’s a known fact. If someone would like to prove me wrong, I’d like to know.

For 4 weeks in a row. While living your real life. Take it at your own summer pace (whatever that means for you).

This is no diet plan. It’s a specific hands-on plan for how to shop, cook, eat and live a real-food lifestyle. Made simple.

THE DEETS: What’s the Summer Meal Plan + how (specifically) does it work?

How It Works:

Every Friday for 4 weeks, you get an entirely new plan for the coming week, including real food recipes you can tailor to your likes, specific directions on what to do when (and how much time it will take you), and a printable shopping list (or viewable on your phone or tablet). The Summer Meal Plan will enable you to have a plan for your breakfast, lunch + dinners for the weekdays, but not in a rigid way.

Also Included:

Real food 101 basic guide, my full green smoothie recipe collection, long term pantry + staple list, cocktail, wine + coffee order guide, healthy snack list, my favorite books, cookbooks + recommended resources, a private Facebook group, access to Sarah anytime for questions/recipe modifications and lots of great bonuses along the way!

More Specifics:

Really, there’s no catch. It’s not a diet. You can add in other food and other snacks if you want to. You can go out to eat. It’s just based on eating real food [unprocessed and whole foods], prepared simply and efficiently for busy people who want to eat well.

It’s just the actual nitty-gritty of how to make healthy eating much more efficient in the context of daily life. So you’ll want to do it. And will be able to keep doing it after you’re done with the 4 week specifically mapped out plan. You know. Like a lifestyle. That’s actually enjoyable and easy enough to keep up over time.

Is This A Good Fit For Me?

1. You are done dieting and being so extreme when it comes to eating healthy.

2. You want to educate yourself. For now and in the future. You need to learn how to shop, prepare some new recipes, eat more seasonally, and think about your week ahead of time, better than you are doing now. Those skills will never go out of style.

3. You want to crave less sugar + processed food. And test how you do with less of them but don’t want to be on a diet plan.

4. You are curious how dairy and gluten are maybe effecting you but are overwhelmed at how to go about it [all the recipes happen to be gluten-free and most are dairy optional]

5. You need new “go-to” recipes: healthy, easy to make + delicious

6. You’d love to have 4 weeks of a ready “plan” that you can take out anytime in the season: re-use them all summer long!

What is included?

1. Weekly Printable Shopping List.

2. Weekly Recipes + specific directions on what to do and make when, and how to combine your dishes to get the most out of them through the week, sent directly to your inbox, once a week for 4 weeks.

3. The Simply Real Health Green Smoothie Recipe Collection, broken down into “beginner”, “intermediate” and “advanced” recipes to pick from every day. There is something for everyone, no matter where you’re starting from! Plus, 5 totally brand new green smoothie recipes for my seasonal meal plan vets.

4. Simply Real Health Real Food Guide + printable lists on Stocking A Healthy Pantry/Freezer, Eating Out + Traveling, A Healthy Cocktail + Wine Guide, Real-Food Desserts, Healthy Snack Options, plus some secret bonus’s along the way.

5. A private Facebook Group (optional) to share your recipe twists, and get tips + tricks with yours truly + other Spring Meal Planners

6. Email access to Sarah with questions or recipe adjustment help.

7. 39 brand new recipes [never before seen on the blog]. All summer oriented. Salads, cold soups, deli style + picnic dishes to eat light but feel satisfied all summer long!

Who is this plan NOT meant for?

Anyone who wants a deeper education on the “whys” behind real food, those that need more personalized accountability and support, or those that have a negative or more emotional relationship to food that they’d like to change. The Meal Plan does a great job of showing you what to do to feel better, but if you don’t address the root cause of some of your thoughts and behaviors, it won’t stick for good. All of these factors would make doing some personalized coaching a much better fit for you, if the goal is to actually change how you think about food for the rest of your life. If you’re not sure, just shoot me an email and we can chat on the phone about what your best fitting options could be.


1. Can I travel + go out to eat while doing this?

Yes, the plan is totally flexible. Stop and start or adjust is as you need to. You can save entire weeks to pull out for weeks that you are fully home too.

2. Is anything off-limits? Coffee, wine, desserts, etc?

No, nothing is off limits at all. This is not a diet plan– just a way to help you maximize your healthy eating, mix up your routine and get you eating and feeling better without so much effort! We make suggestions for you on how to think about your desserts, cocktails + coffee habits, but it’s up to you how you want to go about it.

3. I’m cooking for my significant other or family. Can the recipes be doubled?

Yes, absolutely. The plan is written for 1 person with a large appetite. For a family, I would suggest doubling the items that you think everyone will eat (soups, sides, smoothies, etc), and adding in the foods that they love to the main meals. If you ever have questions on this, you can always email Sarah directly for more guidance on this.

4. Do you offer this plan for groups {corporate groups, friend groups, and families that want to do this together]?

Yes, just ask about special group pricing for groups of 10 or more.

5. I have food sensitivities! Can I do this?

Yes, the entire plan is naturally gluten-free and dairy and egg optional for most recipes. There are meat dishes, but can easily be replaced with bean or lentil substitutes with the same sauces/toppings.
