Meal planning course

Learn to plan your meals in 5 easy steps and save time, energy and money on food!

Have you ever found yourself standing in front of the fridge at 5 pm after a long day at work and wondering “what in the world can I make for dinner tonight”?

Both you and your family are ravenously hungry, but it’s like your mind has gone blank and all you can do is stare at the fridge and start to panic.

If this is you, you are not alone.

Tell me if you identify with this…

  • You’ve tried to plan your meals before but it’s been very complicated and time consuming
  • You want to eat healthy and balanced, but the rush of everyday life does not help you to follow a balanced eating pattern
  • You feel disorganized in the kitchen
  • You expend excessive mental effort thinking about “what’s for dinner?”
  • You arrive home exhausted at the end of a long day and the last thing you feel like doing is cooking an entire meal from scratch
  • You end up buying some takeout from the nearest place, and notice your food expenses creeping upwards
  • You end up making extra trips to the grocery store since you don’t have all the ingredients you need on hand
  • You end up wasting food because you couldn’t use it on time
  • You lack clarity and direction in the kitchen
  • You end up spending more by eating out when you could have saved food dollars by packing your lunch. BTW, did you know that on average we spend about $660 a month on food? Wouldn’t you like to see that number go down?

What if it didn’t have to be this way? What if planning healthy meals could be easy without making your life crazy or spending a lot of time, energy and money on it?

Here’s why you may be struggling to meal plan throughout the week…

  • You think you don’t have enough time during the week to plan your meals
  • Do not you know what to cook during the week
  • You’re not sure how to meal plan balanced meals to improve your nutrition
  • All the recipes you find are either too complicated or not tasty enough
  • You don’t want to spend a lot of money on food

Forget everything you think you know about healthy meal. It’s time to change your mindset completely.

#1 You don’t need a large time investment to plan your weekly meals

#2 Don’t think for a second that because you don’t have the skills of a professional chef you can’t create delicious, balanced meals. The strategy I teach works for both beginners in the kitchen and those with more cooking skills.

#3 Don’t have a large food budget? No problem!

How can I know this? Because I’ve lived it.

For a long time, meal planning was something I struggled with. I would find myself standing in the middle of my kitchen each evening feeling overwhelmed with meal making stress.

Meal planning also felt like a lot of work and often I didn’t have the time or energy to do it. As a result, I ended up spending way too much money on takeout.

However, I finally realized that meal planning is actually an extremely useful tool.

It saves me time and money, and helps me eat in a more balanced way. Meal planning can be fun too! It’s an opportunity to be creative and experiment with new recipes. Meal planning is now something I enjoy and look forward to every week!

Now, I want to help you do the same. If you’re feeling tired of the stress of preparing weekly meals, the solution is much easier than you think. Are you ready for FUEL IN MOTION?

Melissa Nieves, LND, RD, MPH

I am a Registered Dietitian with over 18 years of experience in the field of nutrition. I have worked in a variety of settings, from hospital to private consulting, providing nutrition counseling and education to individuals and families.

In my current role, I work as a Registered Dietitian in private practice, providing medical nutrition therapy to clients with various health conditions.

I am also the founder of the Fad Free Nutrition Blog website.

I am passionate about helping people improve their health through nutrition and lifestyle changes, and I believe everyone has a right to accessible, affordable, evidence-based nutrition information.

I strongly believe in the power of education and empowerment when it comes to making lasting changes in health.

I wanted to create this course because at one point, I found myself under a lot of stress when deciding what to prepare to eat for myself and my family. My days were extremely busy, and I ended up spending a lot of money on takeout since I didn’t have time to cook. I would often find myself standing in front of the fridge, trying to whip up something edible with the ingredients I had on hand.

That’s when I decided to start planning a weekly menu of meals. Meal planning has completely changed my routine. Now, I just take a few minutes each week to plan my meals and make a shopping list. This may seem like a small change, but it has made a big difference in my life.

I am less stressed because I know what I am going to cook every night and I save money because I only buy the ingredients I need. Plus, meal planning has helped me eat better, because I’m less likely to turn to takeout when I already have a meal planned out and ready to eat. If you feel overwhelmed by mealtime, give meal planning a try. It may be the solution you’re looking for!

  • Fewer things to do on your to-do list, less trips to the store, and no more wasted groceries.
  • Balanced and nutritious dishes that you can create easily. You don’t have to make complicated recipes or buy expensive foods to eat well.
