Everyday meals for everyday life
After providing inexpensive recipes and meal planning tips on my website for many years, I still had women and men frequently asking for more help putting the principles into practice. Most people can't afford to hire someone to be a personal consultant for them and create custom meal plans for them. I know I can't. This is why I began writing frugal meal plans, to give busy families on a budget a helping hand in their lives to help bridge the seemingly impossible gap between a modest food budget and a healthy diet. I have been blown away by the testimonies from those that have used my recipes and meal plans in their own homes over the years. I am so honored to be a part of these families' lives, and I get so excited thinking of the kids, moms and dads eating and enjoying healthy food together as a family for the first time in their lives.

What makes your plans different than others?
My plans are a bit different from others out there because they use everyday ingredients that you can find at any grocery store. There are no fancy ingredients. Just good food.
I also heavily use a method I call connected meal planning. This saves a lot of time and money. Leftovers are used in new way for another meal. For example, a boiled whole chicken can be used for three different meals that takes a fraction of the time to put together since the chicken is now already cooked. A slow cooked pork roast is enjoyed one night and turned into shredded pork tacos the next night. You get the idea. It helps reduce food waste and makes dinner time a breeze.
Other meals that don't involve this method are quick cooking like sheet pan meals or skillet dishes.
What our meal plan users have said
Finding meals that my 9 year old will eat along with my husband and I is pretty much impossible. I am so thankful that you do these!!!! The Sloppy Joes are a staple now! Thank you for taking the time to write these, and know, they are much appreciated!
Thank you so much for creating the meal plans. They have really made a difference for our family. We had the meatball subs tonight, and my sons loved it! And it was easy, inexpensive, and healthy.
I must tell you, your menus have been life changing for me and my family as a homeschooling mom of 5 and a book keeper I can not tell what a blessing this is to me!! Thank you so much for your time and effort!!
Using your meal plans is always my first start to kicking me into high gear to start actually cooking those meals!!! Doing the May Meal plan and the fam is loving it! Even passed off the Kale white bean soup off to the 11 year old!

I have designed this plan to be easy for beginner cooks and those who are short on time. Most meals take under 30 minutes to make or they use the slow cooker to cook all day. Many of the recipes also utilize the method of cooking a large protein and using leftovers to give you a head start. I love homemade food, but don't like to be in the kitchen all day either. I have kept the busy family in mind when creating these recipes and plans.
I have received so much positive feedback on these meal plans from happy customers, so I have complete confidence in them. Every product is not for every person though. If you find though that the meal plans are not for you and will not use the plan, just email me at email@example.com and I will be happy to refund your money.
Well it's hard to say if they will or won't, but I tried to win over even the picky eaters. I have included tips for modifying/serving the recipes to suit less adventurous palates. All of these recipes are my own recipes and have been tested by my own children. Every meal plan I create, I receive messages from parents excited that they are enjoying dinners as a family for the first time. Why not you?
I do not have prices listed in this plan, but it is designed it to be low cost compared to standard plans no matter where you live. I can not guarantee results with this plan, however.
