Are you sick of the vicious cycle of eating healthy one week, and being in the drive-thru every day of the next? Maybe you come home on most days not even knowing what to make, with everyone in the family looking at you with that “what’s for dinner?” look on their faces.
If you’re tired of living week to week and can’t seem to develop a consistent healthy eating plan for your family, you’ve come to the right place.
I understand exactly where you are right now.
I struggled with this same problem for years. Although I love to plan and cook healthy meals, the pressure of a demanding career and busy life in general always seemed to keep me throwing meals together at the last minute or opting for less-than-healthy options on my way home from a long, exhausting day at work.
It just seemed there was never enough time to make these amazing meals that I saw on Pinterest.
I would be on a roll for a few weeks and have delicious and healthy meals prepped and cooked, but a few days of working overtime, traveling, or some other random occurrence would put me right back into my old patterns.
Ever since I was young, I knew the benefits of healthy eating. My mother almost always cooked meals at home, and most of the time she made it look so easy!
I was determined to crack the code on consistent healthy eating.
I’ve already been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for years. So, by nature I’m curious and very solution-focused. But when I attended the Health Coach program to become a Certified Health Coach, I didn’t expect that most of what I learned would eventually be applied in my own life and with my own family.
I not only gained an entirely new set of knowledge on Holistic Nutrition to complement my 20-year career as a Social Worker, but I also learned ways to make eating healthy easier and less complicated.
In my Guide to Eating Healthy with a Busy Family Life, I finally realized that I could get organized, be focused when I grocery shop, know what the healthy food options are, prep and cook delicious meals – and it doesn’t have to take hours on end to do it all.
It was more than just knowing what to eat or how to eat healthy. It’s a system that I had to develop and master if I wanted to be consistent and provide a healthy eating lifestyle for my family and myself.
And if I was going to do this, being organized and creating routines was a must.
As a busy working professional, I realized that life gets in the way.
What do they say? Even the best-laid plans can go awry.
But having no plan at will guarantee failure.
I’ve been counseling individuals and families for decades. Coupled with my new knowledge about nutrition, I was empowered to apply this valuable information not only with my clients – but in my own life too.
You see, what I see is that most people have good ideas about what’s healthy. The problem lies in putting it all together. You don’t just need to know what to eat. You need to know how to put it all together without it becoming so overwhelming.
You’ll be much more likely to stick with healthy eating when it’s almost second nature, and you don’t have to “think” so hard about it anymore. I’m referring to things like:
- How to plan out your grocery shopping every week
- An easy routine to prep foods so they are actually used in your meals, and not left rotting in the fridge
- Which foods can do double duty in your meals, and save you valuable time in the kitchen
- Steps that are simple and easy to follow so that even when life happens, the show can go on
Mastering the basics is what will set you up for success.
People who have used this system (including myself) report amazing results like:
- Having a total overhaul of their eating habits
- Finally having routines they can follow to make eating healthy simple and achievable
- Always knowing “what’s for dinner”
- Being able to pack healthier lunches with leftovers
- Saving loads of money on eating out
And making tiny changes one after another can accumulate to greater things too, like improving your energy level, sleeping better at night, and having less emotional ups and downs (especially in kids).

Healthy eating doesn’t have to be hard.
I’ve been a dedicated professional for the past 20 years and it’s my mission to support my community with tools and resources like this guide, so you can have a healthier and more balanced in your life, career, and home.
I created the Guide to Eating Healthy with a Busy Family Life because I’ve seen first-hand how a hectic, stressful lifestyle can lead to other poor habits like a poor diet, poor sleeping patterns, poor relationships, poor performance at work, you name it. Unfortunately, it’s a ripple effect.
But the opposite can be true for developing positive, healthy habits.
One change is sometimes all it takes to start the momentum towards healthier habits!
Even if you’re at the drive-thru so often that the server knows you by name – you’re not hopeless.
I’ve put together the simple steps you need to get started on the right track to healthier meals for your family.
The 5 steps in the guide are the foundation for doing this. And it’s what most people never learn to focus on.
The guide has everything you need to get on the right track to better eating habits for your family.
And it’s totally FREE and my gift to anyone who joins my newsletter and becomes a part of the community.
