You want to prepare healthy meals for your family without spending all day in the kitchen.

You want to cook wholesome dinners for your family but don’t have a lot of time to do it.

You want to feel organized and in control when it comes to meal planning, food preparation and grocery shopping.

I understand. Because I used to feel the same way.

Hi there! I’m Kristine,

A busy mom with four young kids and former teacher. Amidst all that there is to do with raising four young people and running a home, I prioritize cooking a homemade dinner for my family every night.

How do I do it? Meal planning and prepping ahead. Through trial and error and lots of practice, I’ve figured out how to meal plan week after week and cook simple yet delicious and healthy meals for my family. I learned a lot about planning and organization as an elementary school teacher. The skills I practice as a teacher have become a great asset to me in teaching other busy parents how to get homemade meals on their tables.

I believe you can prepare healthy, homemade meals that your family will love… even when life is busy.

What others are saying:

“We made this tonight. It was delicious! My kids ate well and I loved it too! Thanks for the simple and yummy meal!”

“I made this tonight and the whole family loved it! We all had seconds and it was even good cold. It came together really easily too since it’s one pot and just coarse chopping. We will be having this again soon!”

“I made this last week and it was amazing! It is now going in the meal planning rotation!”

Imagine waking up for the day and having a healthy breakfast ready for you and your kids to enjoy. The kids’ lunchboxes are packed with nutritious, real foods (and the kids even helped pack them!) You have a plan for dinner – and part of the prep work is already done. Your whole family happily eats more fruits and vegetables than you ever thought possible. Sounds like a dream? It doesn’t have to be.

I used to fill my grocery cart with expensive packaged foods and processed snacks in an effort to make my life easier. My kids asked constantly for a granola bar or crackers from the cupboard and then wouldn’t eat the dinner I had cooked for them. When it came to meal planning, I had no plan. Many nights we relied on takeout or boxed mac and cheese. When I spent the time to cook a homemade meal, I heard, “I don’t like this dinner!” from my children.

I realized I needed to get organized and plan ahead to simplify the process of feeding my family well and running a healthy home. With four children, I don’t have a lot of time in the evenings to cook dinner. I need recipes that I can prep ahead or put together quickly in between running to kids’ activities.

Today, I have systems and routines that allow me to get nutritious, homemade meals on my table FAST. I have a repertoire of healthy, easy recipes that my whole family happily devours at mealtimes. I can make a weekly meal plan and grocery list in minutes. When my kids ask for a snack I feel calm and confident because I’ve planned and prepped ahead for healthy eating. And you can too.
