You know when you have an elaborate recipe that you need a ton of ingredients for and there are numerous steps to remember? These meal ideas are the opposite of that.  Not too many ingredients, just a few steps and you have a healthy meal ready to go. I still guide you through how to prepare it, but the process is just lots simpler. A “not recipe.” We’re making that a thing. 

This is about very little mental energy spent to make nutritious and tasty food. The first step is customizing the stress-free dinner formula below to make a healthy and balanced meal.

This formula guarantees that you’ll have a blood sugar stabilizing meal that will have you feeling satisfied and full. Just plug your favorite ingredients into the formula and you’ll have a dish that is uniquely yours, and then you can get in the kitchen and start cooking!


I’ve been thinking about this idea for a while. Based on personal experience and work experience, I just want to simplify nutrition/get back to basics. We are all pressed for time (and even if you aren’t, I feel like you’re not using most of your time cooking). Sometimes recipes can be too complicated, and I don’t want that to sway you from eating a healthy and tasty meal. I also know from working with the fire community that even when I create easy recipes they aren’t always followed.

Based on how I cook on my own (little measuring, go by taste, and feel), I wanted to share a method that can’t fail unless you go wildly overboard (ex: 10 cloves of garlic instead of 1; that’s on you …) 

So here you go!

What to expect from this resource:

  1. Ditch the overwhelm and create meals that are easy (Seriously, they’re not complicated!), only have a few steps, and use minimal equipment 
  2. Includes a “balanced meal formula” and supplies examples for inspiration 
  3. Meals shared are healthy, flavorful, and nutrient-dense
  4. Take the guessing out of creating a balanced nutritious meal 
  5. Make “not-recipes” on the fly 
  6. Add your favorite ingredients into the formula so that you can make them uniquely yours

Are you trying to get back to basics with nutrition and health? I have loads of free resources and content for you here, and on Instagram (check highlights and the thousands of posts). If you want more help than what is given for free, the next step is upgrading to a paid service, like buying a Wellness Foundation Workshop or working with me on Individualized Nutrition Coaching.
