With two children and a desire to nourish my family with real, healthy food (and avoid ultra-processed food), I've learned just how much thought goes into sourcing, making, and serving healthy real food meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks).

From my days of picky eaters and toddlers at home to now having older children in school and working full time, I’ve gained a ton of experience with raising healthy kids. I know how much work goes into feeding a family nourishing food.

I believe that nourishing a family shouldn't be complicated and it shouldn't require spending all day in the kitchen. That's why I created this course.

“Going through the program is definitely giving me the energy and inspiration I need to keep going.”

I am working my way through your school lunch plan and am loving it. A real food diet is not new for me, but I have to say, I am so inspired and excited by your recipes. We’ve made a lot of changes in our home but had been falling back into some old habits I’m not proud of. Going through the program is definitely giving me the energy and inspiration I need to keep going.


“The week ran so much better and I wasn’t stressed out about meals.”

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 course was created with all "eaters" in mind. The recipes are picky-eater approved while still being incredibly healthy and nutrient-dense.
My kids are not in school. Is this course appropriate for us?
Yes, this course will work for anyone with or without kids. While the emphasis is on nourishing kids (no matter the age), the food, ideas, and recipes are not "kid food" (for the most part). The meals are nutrient-dense real foods that will be enjoyed by all ages. This guide works for families with children of all ages, whether your children go to school outside the home, you choose to homeschool, or you have toddlers and preschoolers at home. We even have students taking the course without kids at home. This course is incredibly helpful for anyone wanting to simplify and enjoy real food meals.
We have food allergies. Will this course work for us?
Yes, while this course 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. There is an entire section in the recipe book about modifications along with an allergy-friendly chart.
