Every week, usually Thursday or Friday, my husband and I plan our meals for the following week. We choose three meals, without a specific day in mind when we’ll make them, which gives us room for leftovers or unexpected events. We are pretty flexible, loosely scheduled people – so this works for us.
While the meals vary because I can’t have the same thing every week for dinner, there are some items on our list that don’t change. Since I like to leave wiggle room for the unexpected, there are pantry and fridge stocking items that I always try to include – just in case.
What follows are the items I make sure to have present as much as possible. They’re in no particular order, but I may have saved the best for last. 🙂

The Lent round of Feast 2 Fast, starting February 17, is open for registration!
Typically, Feast 2 Fast is 4 weeks long, as we systematically use a pattern of feasting and fasting to increase metabolic flexibility and restore nutrient density. The Lent round is six and a half weeks long. We start with a brief sugar detox and incorporate a weekly superfast. We are encouraging each other to give up a food/practice/poor habit for the duration of Lent, while also adding in a divine activity to level up the spiritual focus and become more mindful and purposeful in who we are.
We are simplifying our lives to focus on what truly matters, and I hope you will join us! For more information or to sign up, click here.
- No calorie counting.

In this program, we use intermittent fasting in a way that works for YOUR unique body. We introduce real food carbs, whole food carbs, and my favorite – heck yeah carbs – which not only encourages metabolic flexibility, it encourages a healthy mindset toward food as well!
Weekly Zoom meetings are available for those wanting more individualized support, but they aren’t mandatory. You get to go at your own pace and use what components work best for you!

I’m OBSESSED with my air fryer! This recipe was a hit with my kids.
Preheat air fryer to 390.
Mix 2 cups of carrots with 1 tablespoon avocado oil, 1 tablespoon honey and a dash of coconut aminos. Add a few shakes of salt and pepper, maybe some cayenne pepper for fun.
Air fry for 12 minutes. Open and shake the basket halfway through. If you’re feeling decadent, toss in grass-fed butter after. But they taste great as they are!
That’s it! Pure air fryer magic.
Salads and I have a pretty shady history. In fact, salads give me a little PTSD. They make me think of diets and all the trauma associated with dieting. The idea that if I only eat “good” food, I’ll look better and be a new and improved version of me. Spoiler alert – I’m always the same me, and no amount of salads or promising diets will change that.
So salads and I needed healing time. We took a break from each other. I focused on food for brain health and began retraining my mind on how I think about food and what motivates me to eat healthy. After listening to a podcast about phytonutrients in different colored vegetables, I knew it was time to re-enter the world of salads. Continue reading “Not Your Average Salad”
