Make it MUCH easier to feed your family with a 4-week meal planning system that does the work for you so you can spend less time stressing about what to serve for meals and more time actually enjoying your time at the table.
Happy Family Meals
This digital ebook will take some of the mental load off your shoulders so you can feed your family and enjoy your time together at the table! Because let’s be real: Cooking for a family is time consuming, challenging, and often completely unrewarding. Those darling little people of ours can be tough critics and their preferences can be moving targets. It’s so easy to feel like a total failure come dinnertime when, yet again, no one wants to eat the meal you’ve made. I get it. I have three kids and I’ve been there!
But here’s the thing: There are simple steps you can take to improve the mealtime situation in your house. And (with a little help from me!), you can shift your perspective and goals for meals to focus more on time together and less on hitting an arbitrary nutritional goal. Because at the end of the day, feeding our kids is so much more than just getting them to eat two more bites of broccoli—it’s about finding time to talk and share stories from our days, passing on values and traditions, and using those meals as touch points in our very busy schedules.
To help myself, I started writing down a system to make this all happen…and to help you, I turned it into my Happy Family Meals system!

Family Meal Plans that Really Work
If you can’t figure out how to get dinner on the table each night, if you want to make one meal for everyone but aren’t sure of what exactly to make that will make everyone happy, if you have family members with different likes and dislikes and feel like you’re cooking 12 meals a night to please everyone, if you just want someone to do the work of planning meals for you…this meal planning system is for you.
Happy Family Meals Is a meal planning system that takes some of the work out of a feeding a family. It includes 4 weeks of meal plans with recipes and ideas for each meal of the day. Each recipe is streamlined in terms of prep work and ingredients and leftovers are repurposed into new recipes to save you work in future weeks.
Feeding a family can be challenging for reasons that go beyond the food. Which is why the meal plans and recipes are surrounded by bonus content to help you know how to handle it when the kids don’t eat, give you ideas to entertain the kids while you cook, help you pack lunches without having to craft rainbow bento boxes (unless you want to!), and reassure you that you are doing a great job feeding your family—no matter how many bites of dinner your kids eat.
My family has food allergies and intolerances—will this work for us?
While not every recipe starts out totally allergy-free, I’ve included allergy-friendly alternatives for the most common food allergies in all but two of the 56 recipes. Comment on this post with specific questions about allergies!
