Spring and hallelujah. The two words that always come out of my mouth together when we get to this point in the year.
It’s time to lighten up people.
Let’s start today, shall we? With this. A little teaser recipe from the upcoming Spring Meal Plan, (which pssst, will officially open it’s doors next week for registration).
So you can shop, cook, and eat bomb, beautiful food (that’s good for you), all in under 3 1/2 hours per week. Yes, you read that right. Per week. For breakfast, lunch and dinner.
All planned out for you, creatively and juicy, so all you have to do is buy the ‘gredients and follow my easy cooking hacks for the week.
It’s like a life-saving blueprint for easy healthy cooking, that I wrote for my people, who get a little overwhelmed trying to cook, feel like they don’t know how, are stuck on the same boring recipes, or feel like they just don’t have the time. But, also want to be healthier, happier people.
With more CALM around food. Especially the shopping and prepping and cooking part.
Talk about more joy with food, right? If that’s not the definition of more joy with food, then I don’t know what is.
Um, hello. In other words, get on it. They are legendary around these parts for a reason. And spring is always one of the best, because, hello fresh things are in season now. And goodbye winter squash.
