During this course, I will show you my best tips and tricks I use to quickly create a balanced meal plan for the week, my favorite prep ahead strategies, the best foods to batch cook, and how to store, reheat, freeze and defrost it ALL!
How to meal plan; how to use what you have; my top 10 family dinners; theme nights; creating balance.

There are loads of foods that can be batch cooked! I also want to clear up all the questions I have heard about freezing food and how to do it right.
This last week I will share my best strategies and formulas for repurposing leftovers. I also want to share my favorite things to make at the last second if I don't quite have enough for dinner. Lastly, I will provide tips for keeping food fresh and understanding food labels.

I have loved good food and enjoyed cooking for as long as I can remember. As a child, while other kids were at the playground, I was helping my father in the garden, watering plants and vines and watching miracles happen. I come from a large Italian-American family where sit-down holiday dinners for 85 people are the norm (how, you might ask – organization! But more on that later …).
The food I grew up with was never fancy, even though my mother always had a subscription to Gourmet. But I knew where the food came from and it was always real. It wasn’t until I was an adult that I learned more about the nourishing and healing power of food. And it wasn’t until I volunteered as a nutrition docent in an elementary school for Growing Great that it truly crystallized for me — our society has a big problem. I knew I had to do something, but was unsure of where to start.
I was asked to teach a “healthful cooking class” for a group of young mothers. The business grew organically from that first group and I knew I had a message — and a new mission — in life.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
No. This course is online and self-paced so you can watch on your own time. The only live component are the weekly office hour meetings via zoom where you can join me to ask questions.
I will be available via zoom on Wednesdays at 11:00 AM (Pacific Time) to answer any questions students have. You can access the zoom invite through the membership portal. Please feel free to join and ask me anything!
You can still take the course, but it will limit the support you can receive from other students.
I will be there every step of the way and will answer any questions you have during our weekly office hour meetings. You can also contact me through the private Facebook page or via email at email@example.com. For any tech questions, please contact my assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will not need any fancy kitchen equipment, although I will offer suggestions on my favorite go-to tools. Having basic tools like a cutting board, knife, sheet pan, and skillet are great!.
No problem! I will offer plenty of substitutions you can use to adapt recipes.
Each student will receive login details after signing up to access their own private account on the membership portal (login link located on my site, under Bootcamps) where course content is organized into modules. This is where you will be able to access pdf downloads, class videos, and office hour meeting information. Plus, you will have lifetime access to your membership account.
