Meal
Planning

Lack of time is one of the most common reasons I hear for not achieving nutrition goals. Especially during motherhood, your time is precious and I totally get that. Let me help you stay focused and achieve your goals by giving some time back to you. Whether you are a working mama, in the throw of the newborn phase, or chasing after toddlers, an extra hand in the kitchen or grocery store can be a real lifesaver! 

Possibilities include:

  • on site meal prep
  • weekly meal plans and recipes
  • grocery lists
  • batch cooking and freezer meals    

Meal planning can be customized to meet your exact needs! Due to the nature of meal prep, this service is limited to clients in the Chicagoland area only. Please contact me to let me know how I can help!
