ENROLL NOW

Get confident and clear about “what's for dinner”, FOREVER

— in just 30 days —

without being handcuffed by to too much structure, sacrificing your time to spend hours in the kitchen, or getting overwhelmed by the daily question "what the heck do I cook?"

 

If you’re an busy gal who is responsible for feeding humans on a daily basis...

and want to know, without a doubt, that dinner is taken care of, so that you NEVER have to hit that 5:00 "oh shoot" moment...

then you already know that you need to be meal planning.

You've probably heard that meal planning is the only way to make it possible to cook healthy-ish meals within your budget in the midst of a cazy-busy life.

And I'm sure you already know that subscriptions can be helpful (if imperfect), but only if you're willing to pay a pretty penny for them.

I'll even bet you know that if you spent just a little time getting organized for the week ahead, dinnertime would come with a lot less "what the heck am I gonna cook" and a lot more "I've totally got this".

 

 

 

Here's What You Might Not Know

about what you can stand to gain from meal planning

1.

  • You Can Feel More Powerful, More Confident, and In-control

    When you can step into your kitchen on a weeknight with total clarity about what's for dinner and how it's happening, you can step OUT of the shadows of fear of making the WRONG decision about what to feed your family, guilt about choosing to eat out, out of desparation, and regret from over-spending and food waste. 

    2.

  • Gain Back Hours of Your Week

    Fasle: Meal Planning takes time and focus AWAY from the other things I need to do.
  • True: Spending just a little time at the beginning of the week to set yourself up for success SAVES you about 6X your investment of time. You will no longer need to make that frazzled mid-week grocery store run or waste time humming and hawing with indecision after soccer practice when everyone's hangry, or frustratedly slamming bowls and silverware drawers when the recipe you chose turned into a marathon cooking sesh.

3.

  • Save thousands of Dollars a Year

    Meal planning from what you have means shorter grocery lists, for life. This is what makes meal planning for yourself so different from downloading a meal plan. This simple shift can save hundreds of dollars on groceries every month – a savings that could mean HUGE things for your family. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
  • That trip to Disney? Paid for. That car payment? Gone. Weekly massage cause Mama's got stress knots? Consider it booked.

4.

  • Get Healthy (without Even Trying)

    These days, it seems like everyone has an opinion on the healthiest diet trend. Paleo this. Keto that. Plant-based, low-carb... it's enough to make a girl go crazy. But one thing that's always true is that everyone's better off eating real food, cooked at home, with whole ingredients. In the words of Rachael Ray, "The more you cook, the healthier you will be... period." If you want to cook more whole food meals, meal planning is the only way to do it on your budget, and on your schedule.

Even though the reasons to meal plan are clear, the process of actually doing it consistently 
is anything but.

Make a meal plan for the week? Sure!

But where do I even begin?

 

Maybe in the throw-up-your-hands moments of finally getting frustrated enough to do something about this stress migraine-causing, seemingly massive undertaking that is feeding your family, you've taken to Pinterest, only to find that the endless search results for "meal plan" look like a mix of perfectly matching prepped dinners, batch-cooked Crock Pot mush, cute, (but unattainable) fridge-side weekly menus, and, generally speaking, way more work than you're ready to take on

So you've resorted to biting the bullet and shelling out the equivalent of a nice dinner out at a fancy restaurant for an imperfect but done-for-you meal plan or half-prepped dinner kit subscription.

And when that still doesn't line up quite right with your schedule, your budget, your taste, or your family's specific needs, you're back to emergency take-out or freezer food on the couch with a glass of wine to calm your nerves because this whole 5:00 weeknight shebang makes you feel, at best, defeated, and, at worst, like a total failure.

Here's why this cycle of hitting crisis mode, and trying solution after solution to finally stop the hamster wheel, keeps happening:

Most women who feel like they're constantly grinding their gears when it comes to food & money are missing the fact that what it takes to make your kitchen run like a well-oiled machine isn't what you'd think...

It's not a well-designed menu board. Or a done-for-you service. Or a Pinterest-perfect prep plan. None of these solutions are tailored to your needs, so they're never going to meet them.

You will never hit a stride when it comes to cooking dinner for your family until you realize that YOU are the solution to consistently planning and executing your family's meals, and doing it yourself is the only way the process won't monopolize your time or make you feel like you want to pull your hair out.

Luckily for you, what this means is that you already have what it takes to create a week of nourishing and crowd-pleasing food for your family. You are enough. You're already the hero. You already have what's most important – the simple desire to feed people well. You just have to put a little strategy behind it.

The 3 Mindset Shifts You Need to Make Right Now to Make Meal Planning a Consistent and Successful Practice and Avoid Burnout and Boredom:

Mindset No. 1

You Can't Go All-in and Expect Sustainable Change.

Big changes happen little by little. When you adopt a new routine and completely disregard the other rhythms already in your life, it's not going to stick past your worst, most stressed-out day. We all fall back into the same patterns – and at the risk of sounding like Eminem – lose ourselves in the process. You have to approach a weekly meal planning practice with small actions that, over time, become radical change. That's the key to building a strong foundation of knowing exactly how to tackle your kitchen no matter what. 

Mindset No. 2

You Can't "Hack" Feeding Your Family Long-term.

We can't give away the responsibility of feeding our families to kits, subscriptions, or services – not sustainably. When it comes to feeding your family, another service to "fix" the problem is NOT what you need. YOU are the best person for the job because only YOU are intimately aware of what's in your fridge, what's on your schedule, and what your budget is.

Mindset No. 3

Meal Plan is a Verb, Not a Noun.

You can't download a meal planning practice. It's something you DO. Choosing a list of meals you want to eat for the week and writing them down on a schedule is NOT meal planning. When you start with what you already have, your meal plan will practically make itself, beginning a snowball effect of one meal toppling into another, until the process becomes cyclical, always picking up right where where you've left off.

So, I've got a little secret for you.

You are the only missing piece to your family's dinnertime jigsaw puzzle.

That means you can stop turning to half-baked (pun intended) solutions that will inevitably drop you back off at the doorstep of weeknight panic mode.

Take control of your kitchen in the way that only YOU can, without having to spend an hour (or even 30 minutes!) on cooking every night.

Starting right where you are means you can gain a life-changing sense of confidence about feeding your family by taking it step-by-step.

And using exactly what you have means there's nothing more you have to possess to show up for your family and be exactly what they need.

You don't need more hours in the day, or a higher level of cooking skill, or a more gourmet kitchen to get food into mouthes with less stress and on budget.

"My shopping was simplified and this was the first month in a LONG time that we have stayed under budget for groceries! Allie taught me how to be intentional with the meals our family shared at the table and also took away my guilt of eating out or quick lunches because they were planned out ahead of time. I didn’t stare awkwardly at my fridge every day wondering “What can we do for dinner?” I’m so thankful for this course!"

Introducing

MEAL PLANNING
Mastered

Your Ultimate Playbook for Confidently and Consistently Planning and Executing
Stress-free, Healthy and Budget-friendly
Family Meals

I've taken everything I've learned from trialing and erroring the shopping-cooking-eating cycle with my own family for ten years, and have boiled down the exact process that works, week-in and week-out to save thousands on groceries and countless hours of time, and to finally feel joy and confidence in the kitchen.

It's all there for you in this step-by-step course that teaches not only time management and meal planning strategy, but also a powerful and life-changing approach to food itself.

This course will guide you to a place of peace in your kitchen where YOU are totally in control.

 

Meal Planning Mastered is the ONLY program of its kind that…

 

1. Starts exactly where you are, right now.

Meal Planning Mastered teaches you how to make a new meal planning routine stick, for good... taking it little-by-little. This course makes no assumptions about where you're starting, what you have, or how much time you can commit. You'll get baby step options every step of the way, to implement as slowly as you need to, for change that lasts.

 

2. Makes cooking fun again

instead of allowing it to continue to be a dreadful task on your laundry list of to-do's. We're not "hacking" away the importance of feeding our families well. We're simply hacking how we do it to get more, real food on the table, so you can stop compromising your convictions about the health of your family for the sake of convenience.

 

3. Prioritizes what you have.

The entire Meal Planning Mastered system is built on a foundational principle of starting with what you already have, reducing food waste and grocery spending, all while teaching you how to use up everything you buy in creative ways, to make healthy family meals.

So if you’re ready to finally take control of your kitchen and skip the drama surrounding dinnertime...

Here’s how I’ll help you get there:

Take a peek inside the course:

Module 1

Transforming Your Mindset in the Kitchen

Guilt, fear, shame... you feel them all around the way you feed your family, and they're all wrapped up in a pretty bow called "overwhelm." We're going to dig deeper to the heart of the matter, get rid of the ghosts of dinners past, and chart a new path forward.

In the first module, we'll tackle the 3 biggest obstacles to meal planning momentum: mindset, time and money. Get on-track by creating a budget, setting realistic goals, and learning just how impactful meal planning will be – for generations to come.

I'll also expose the exact friction point that's sending your dinner hour up in smoke, so you'll be able to see it coming and never let panic steal the show again.

 

Highlights:

  • Beautifully designed journaling pages that will help you establish your "why", walk you through writing your family's values around food, and creating goals you can reach every single week, to make your vision a reality.
  • Mindset coaching that will get you out of the shadows of fear and self-doubt so that you can finally get un-stuck and take action that will radically improve the financial, physical, and emotional health of your whole family. 
  • Use my "Find Your Starting Line" Guide to decide how much time you're willing to commit to meal planning, how much time it'll save you, and how to baby step your way to your goals.
  • Learn the real cost of not meal planning and get POWERFUL, in-depth budget training from expert personal finance coach, Lindsay Butler, so you can cut your spending by hundreds the first month you implement what you've learned (and every month thereafter) without sacrificing the quality of the food you buy, chasing sales, or clipping coupons.
  • Get out in front of stress in the Fridge to Fork Cycle breakdown of what, exactly, a successful week should look like.
Module 2

Setting Yourself Up for Successful Meal Planning

Before you ever begin to write a grocery list, you've got to do a little prep work that will make your path clear and your planning sesh quick.

Then, learn the step-by-step process that gets you from what's on hand to what's for dinner, and back again.

You'll learn how an almost-empty fridge is actually your most valuable asset when it comes to meal planning, helping you to reduce stress, waste, and spending. 

This is the exact process that has saved my family $10,000 a year on food and makes it possible to put together a real dinner every night of the week.

Highlights:

  • Get definitive answers about what to plan and what NOT to, creating clarity and speed in your week.
  • Plan for using ingredients across multiple meals with the Meal Plan Snowball strategy, to save money and simplify process of coming up with ideas for what to cook.
  • Discover the crucial step you're skipping that's the number one best thing you can do for your budget and stress level at dinnertime.
  • Create inspiration-sparking assets for clarity and speed during your meal planning sesh.
Module 3

Finding the Perfect Recipe 

 

Highlights:

  • Take the guesswork out of choosing the right recipes with multiple recipe sourcing strategies that keep you on budget, on time, and out of the Pinterest rabbit hole.
  • Get ideas faster and without the overwhelm of a million possibilities. By the time you’re done, it’ll feel like you’ve paid someone to build a custom meal plan just for you.

  • Write a grocery list that allows you to shop ONCE for an entire week. No more emergency [food] trips mid-week!
Module 4

Fitting Your Meal Plan into Your Busy Life

Now that you've got a killer list of meals for the week, it's time to get them planned. After all, your meal plan is only as good as its ability to fit around your life, so you'll schedule your week accordingly by planning to make the right meals on the right days.

This is the process that will change your habits long-term, making meal planning a sustainable part of your routine.

Even if you're afraid of too much structure or don't want to cook every single night, there's a way you can meal plan that allows you the flexibility to eat out or grab something quick after evening activities. By the end of this process, you'll know exactly how to put together your meal plan from fridge-to-fork for a week that looks and feels like YOURS – and even get on the path to becoming comfortable enough to cook without a recipe.

Highlights:

  • Integrate your meal plan with your schedule, instead of feeling handcuffed to a plan that. Assign meals to the right days, and choose just how structured you want to make your week. This is meal planning around YOUR schedule.
  • Find where your grocery shopping is getting off-track and get fun, simple ways to make it less of a chore.
  • Use my Meal Prep Efficiency Blueprint to set yourself up for success on the busiest weeks, so dinner can be assembled in 10-15 minutes.
  • Learn how to make the 5 Fundamental Dinners, and get inspired to transform even the smallest, odd bits of food into a crowd-pleasing meal. #byebyefoodwaste
Module 5

Overcoming Obstacles that Could Throw You Off

You've got a good plan, but the human element is real. We can't expect things to go smoothly every day. That's what keeps life interesting!

In this module, I'll teach you what to do when the unexpected happens, so that you aren't sent into a tailspin (and your budget isn't ruined).

Highlights:

  • Strategies for eating home-cooked meals, even if you're not at home to cook (or eat!) them.
  • How to feed surprise dinner guests, picky kids (or a picky husband),
  • How to continue your progress even when you want to try out something new. 
  • Have a plan for dinner, even if you didn't plan actually plan for it... no matter what.

"I'm less than a week in and feeling excited about exploring new flavor profiles I had not explored before! It's empowering to realize my extra produce can become inspiration for full meals! This course definitely expands past just time management and into a generally more creative cooking process."

Frequently Asked Questions

Questions our Top Students Asked Before Enrolling

The thing about all those other solutions you've tried in the past is that they're not made for YOU.

So, outside of hiring someone to personally create a custom meal plan that takes into account the contents of your fridge, the activities on your schedule, or the size of your grocery budget (which would be incredibly expensive)... the only solution that will work, long-term is for you to learn now to custom-build a plan, yourself, the way I teach in MPM.

Absolutely!

Becoming a good cook is more about practice and time than it is about skill. It's like learning to walk. We just kind of feel our way forward, little by little. 

MPM gives you multiple ways to baby-step towards becoming a clever, creative, adept cook, through done-for-you bonuses, foolproof templates, and graduating from recipe cooking to not even needing a recipe anymore. You will walk away with the margin in your life to spend energy on becoming a better cook, if you so wish, and the confidence to keep trying new things.

1. Meal Planning Mastered focuses on cooking with whole ingredients. Unlike other meal planning courses, MPM will not teach you how to clear out an overflowing freezer full of meat or use up the three bottles of BBQ sauce in your pantry. Those things will naturally happen for you, once you implement the strategies within the course, but MPM makes no assumptions about what you currently have on-hand and focuses, instead, on getting you to eat more real food.

2. The backbone of MPM is eating down to the bottom of the fridge every week, not operating from a place of excess. This is the only course that teaches an inherently low-waste and healthy meal planning system.

So, you could piece-meal it together from shelf cooking communities, blogs, and podcasts, and allow yourself to keep falling back into your routines that don't work, or you could take the only course that finally gives you the structure and mindset shifts you need to change your habits, for good.

I have total confidence in you, that once you've made it through Module 2 of the course and implement what you're learning, you'll start to see huge results.

That's why I offer a 30-day money back guarantee through the Short List, Small Total Challenge. 

By the end of our time together, you will have had time to implement powerful strategies to eliminate indecision, save time, and reduce your grocery budget. If you feel like this just isn't going to work for you, and you can show me snapshots of your Seamless Meal Planner in action to show you've given it a good effort, I will refund your investment. 

I designed Meal Planning Mastered to give you white space to implement each step, and build a solid foundation as you're learning. This isn't a drink from a fire hose course. I'm actually along in the journey with you, throughout the 4 weeks of training – inside the Facebook group and one-on-one via Voxer – so that you will never feel overwhelmed by the process. I want to make sure you make it to the finish line, so this will be a completely different experience than purchasing a course, getting halfway through, and never getting to 100% completion. 

Once our 4 weeks together comes to a close, don't worry, you'll still have lifetime access to the archived Facebook group, as well as all the course content in your member's area.

  1. You want a solid foundation of knowledge you can turn to, and build upon, as seasons of life change.
  2. You've tried meal planning before and haven't been able to make it stick, but you're ready to take the last first step, EVER, to turn it into a sustainable habit.
  3. You're hitting panic mode multiple times a week at dinnertime and and you want to finally get out of the cycle of frustration, overspending, and waste.
  4. You aren't looking for permission to continue serving chicken nuggets and mac n' cheese multiple nights a week – you want better for your family, even if it means getting out of your comfort zone.
  5. You're already cooking at least one dinner at home per week.
  6. You're afraid you don't have enough time to cook at home more, and you're ready to learn how to do it without losing more hours of your busy day (or wishing for a fairy godmother to grant you more than 24 of them.)
  7. You know that once you learn how to cleverly navigate the relationship between what you cook and what's on your schedule, you'll finally be able to get excited about feeding your family.
  8. You believe that taking action immediately by leveraging what you already have in your kitchen will help you get your budget on track in a big way.
  9. You're ready to start taking the right steps forward, NOW, so you won't waste another minute on stressed-out indecision or staring blankly into the fridge.
