Frequently Asked Questions

Can I download and print this guide?
Yes, once you complete your purchase, you'll have instant access to your guide. The guide is housed in our online platform, Teachable. Teachable may be accessed through your computer, tablet, or the app (Teachable) on your phone. You get lifetime access to the guide and you can download and print any or all pages.
I have a picky eater. Will this guide work for us?
Yes, 100%! I've dealt with picky seasons with my own kids over the years. My kids are not "perfect" eaters (whatever that means). I believe healthy, real food should be enjoyable for the whole family, not just adults. Real food should bring your family together, not be a source of struggle. This guide was created with all "eaters" in mind. The recipes are picky-eater approved while still being incredibly healthy and nutrient-dense.
What's the refund policy?
Due to the digital and downloadable nature of this guide, returns are not allowed. If for some reason you need assistance or have a question about your purchase, please contact me (Kristin) at [email protected] so we can find a way to resolve the issue. Live Simply is 100% committed to helping families and your satisfaction is always our top priority.
My kids are not in school. Is this guide will appropriate for us?
Yes, this guide will work for anyone with or without kids. While the emphasis is on nourishing kids (no matter the age), the snacks are not "kid food." The snacks are nutrient-dense real foods that will be enjoyed by all ages. There is also a small section on snack boards, which is a great way to serve meals during the summer or if you're a homeschool family during the week (or if you have young kids at home).
We have food allergies. Will this guide work for us?
Yes, while this guide doesn't exclude any one healthy food group, there are ways to make modifications to recipes calling for dairy or suggestions involving dairy. There are also plenty of gluten-free recipes.
Will this guide work for adults?
Yes, this guide also works for adults who are looking for healthy, easy-to-make snack ideas outside of your typical piece of fruit or store-bought "energy bar" (which are usually filled with processed ingredients that aren't healthy and don't keep you satisfied). Much of the wording in the guide is geared towards families with children in the home, but the information is still helpful and applicable for adults.

In 2013, Kristin started the blog ( as a way to share her family’s journey as they made the transition from an ultra-processed food diet to one of “real food.” The advice she found online felt complicated and impractical for a mom with two littles, so her focus was on simplifying this lifestyle. As Kristin shared her journey, which included recipes and tips, the blog’s following grew. Today, Live Simply is no longer just about Kristin's story. Live Simply is an active and engaged community of readers from all over the world. Live Simply helps families embrace a simplified and practical approach to healthy living via the blog, email, social media, online courses and books, and the podcast. Live Simply is about saying no to the stress of perfection and saying yes to small steps that lead to a nourished life.
