Weekly Meal Plan
I have a free meal planning webinar Sunday, August 30 at 4pm Central Time! Grab a notebook, a pen and your computer and I’ll teach you how to make a weekly meal plan that works for you. Simple shifts in your routine can help you save time, money and energy during the week! Not to mention, making a meal plan is the best way to intentionally eat healthier. No matter why you want to meal plan, I’ll help you get there! Be sure to register, because last time we filled up!
Did you hear the news?! I opened the doors for my cooking class membership site! I’ll register new members until September 4, when the doors will close again until 2021. I hope you’ll join me on this new adventure. I have a year’s worth of lessons you can check out on the site, and please feel free to email me with any questions!
Well, summer has officially come to an end. We packed up in Idaho and headed back to Houston, traded fires and smoke for hurricanes and rain. If there was ever a time to start a calming meditation practice, the time is now! One thing that helps keep my stress at bay is having a weekly meal plan, so here we are.

Home in Houston! I’m excited to get back to a real routine. While I’d like to say I’m cooking dinner tonight, let’s be honest, we’re getting takeout. My husband misses his routine of Mexican takeout from El Patio. I’ll make a simple salad to have with our shredded green chicken enchiladas. If you want to make an easy Mexican dinner at home, make enchilada casserole and call it a night!
Meatless Monday for my crew. I’ll make veggie stir fry. Serve with steamed cauliflower rice, coconut cauliflower rice or steamed short grain rice. Sometimes I make veggie dumplings on the side for my kids — don’t get any fancy ideas, I buy these in the freezer section from Trader Joe’s!
Supposedly the rain is hitting tonight or tomorrow. I’m planning to make a big pot of comforting coconut red curry soup with tender chunks of butternut squash. Add a scoop of leftover rice from last night.
One of the first recipe classes in my new online cooking school is a healthier eggplant parmesan with a quick and easy homemade tomato sauce. It’s similar in style to this eggplant involtini, except it’s grilled, stacked and layered with fresh mozzarella and tomato sauce. I hope you’ll consider joining my new cooking class membership! We have an amazing lineup of recipe classes for the year. You can check out everything here!
Pizza night at home! Roll out store bought pizza dough (we use Trader Joe’s brand dough sold in the cheese section) and bake it with leftover tomato sauce from last night, mozzarella and basil. I love adding some dollops of sundried tomato pesto, too! I like to use a ceramic pizza stone that heats up in the oven and creates a crispy/chewy crust.
