What I’ve heard countless times from y’all is: I don’t mind cooking (and even enjoy it, yay!), but it is completely exhausting to figure out what I’m cooking every night for my family: planning, creating a grocery list, making everyone’s taste buds happy AND dealing with random leftover ingredients. Meal prep tips and recipes have been a TOP request of yours for years, and my most popular cooking class is Make Once, Eat All Week.
THAT’S WHAT THE SIMPLY BALANCED MEAL PLAN COMMUNITY IS FOR!
I’ve taken my expertise from the last decade and poured it into these meal plans, and they’re finally available! While I absolutely love my cookbooks, The Laura Lea Balanced Cookbook and Simply Laura Lea, they don’t offer structured meal plans, and they use more of those specialty items that aren’t as available or affordable right now. So I’ve created this new resource to serve different needs.
Here’s what you get when you join my Meal Plan Community:
♥Immediate Access to FOUR Meal Plans, including vegetarian and breakfast options, and easy gluten- and dairy-free swaps
♥Monthly pdf meal plans that have a simple grocery list, which gets completely used up by the end of the week (except for spices/condiments
♥Ingredients you can find at almost any grocery store—no running from one place to the next!
♥Private access to monthly live Zoom cooking and troubleshooting sessions with me! I’m so excited to build a community where we can connect regularly (these recordings will be available on the website for those who miss it)
♥4 recipes per meal plan, each of which makes at least 4 servings, so you’re getting a minimum of 16 servings (often MORE).
♥MAJORLY affordable grocery lists!!! For these meal plans, I focus on the most budget-friendly options available. If you have the means to purchase more expensive cuts of meat or add a few ingredients here and there, great! If you don’t, you’re still cooking home-made food for your family.
♥Dishes that will please adults and kiddos alike.
Here’s a sample plan:
Beef & Shells with Creamy Tomato Sauce (approximately 4-6 servings)
Cream of Chicken & Broccoli Bread Pudding (approximately 8 servings)
