Guide To Master Meal Planning
Is There Nutrition Information Included?
No. Because we urge flexibility and variety for each person based on their unique needs, it wouldn’t be resourceful or helpful to provide nutrition information for every variety. The good news is, you can easily enter them into a calorie/nutrition tracking software and figure that out, such as myfitnesspal.com Be sure you’re focusing on nourishing your body more than counting numbers.
What Kind Of Recipes?
The recipes in the Guide to Master Meal Planning are very similar to the recipes you’d find on the NS blog – all have whole food ingredients and are designed to nourish your body. They’re all very simple or able to be batch cooked ahead of time — also while reducing food waste, food costs, and being resourceful with your time. Think smoothies, soups, stir-frys, bowl meals, etc. They’re also easily modified for vegans, athletes, etc.
What If I’m Vegan, Gluten-free, Paleo, etc.?
The meal plans are all gluten free, dairy free, and use only whole food ingredients. Some recipes contain eggs and nuts, but you can easily sub for flax eggs and seeds. If you are paleo, many of the recipes have whole grains and legumes instead of meat, but you could easily sub these for meat to fit your diet. Again, the goal is to teach you how to plan meals and batch cook for yourself, so if you have a diet that restricts certain foods, you’ll learn how to make recipes work for you!
Above all, email [email protected] for specific substitutions or ask the community on the NS Meal Planning Pros group. There are endless possibilities, variations, and additions that you can add to the meal plans to make it work for you, ‘cause that’s all it’s about!
Does Batch Cooking Take Time?
When I first started batch cooking the first couple of times took me double, just to find my groove but I promise you’ll quickly become a multitasking pro. Nowadays I can do the entire process from shopping –> cooking in under 3 hours. I save ~10 hours a week to do more of the things I love plus no decision fatigue! I’ve done the hard work for you and set you up with shopping lists, batch cooking schedules, and even an example and worksheet showing you how to break down recipes into a batch cooking day to save you the most time.
Is This A Weight Loss Program?
No, this is a meal planning system, not a nutrition-specific meal plan. As a Dietitian, I don’t give out cookie-cutter recommendations for nutrition planning and only help clients reach those very specific and individual goals when working 1-1 with us since everybody is different. If you’re looking for specific weight loss, weight gain, digestive healing, etc., sign up for a nutrition consultation here.
Who Is In The Meal Planning Pro FB Group?
There are people from all around the globe (over 30 countries, in fact!) in the NS Meal Planning Pro’s Facebook group. They’re all on a journey to find balance and simplicity by meal planning but come from many different walks of life. Guide to Master Meal Planning members are moms, professionals, college students, and more. We’re all looking to connect and grow with the group.
What If I Want More Meal Plans After I’ve Made All The Recipes?
When you sign up for the NS Guide To Master Meal Planning, you’re getting far more than just meal plans. You’ll get a year’s worth of recipes plus meal planning tools. There are several meal plan services out there that will give you a different recipe for every week, but the goal of the GMMP is to teach you how to meal plan for life. You can use the recipes and rotations over and over, the key is simplicity.
This is the exact reason we created the Society, a monthly subscription to know more about living well — we created this after years of feedback from people who purchased the Guide to Master Meal Planning, they wanted more because they loved it! Sign up for the Society here.
What If I Get Bored Or Want Variety?
First up, always ask your community in the FB group, they have amazing ideas!
Next, you can always mix and match the meal plans or ad your favorite dishes for variety. Each season has four rotations plus a Swap It List for extra flexibility so that you have the opportunity to become a pro at each rotation. You can reuse meal plans, swap them around, or substitute with the Swap It List or your favorite recipes. If you get bored with the meals, just switch it up! Be sure to check your inbox for 30 tips on how to meal prep like a pro.
