A common misconception about macro-counting is that it's difficult and time-consuming. Sure, I get that. It might seem like it takes a lot of work, but it's actually really simple!
As a working mom and wife, I don’t have all the time in the world to prepare and calculate perfectly macro-balanced meals - nor do I want to! And working with nutrition clients over the years, I've realized that a lot of them know what they should be doing with regard to healthy eating, but they simply don't have the time to meal plan, calculate macros, or know what to eat (besides chicken breast and steamed broccoli). So that’s why I created the Weekly Meal Prep Power Hour - to take the hassle out of meal planning and macro-counting!
Each week's meal plan includes 5 whole food, macro-friendly recipes (no calculations needed) to use as a "framework" for planning. You also receive nutrition information for each recipe, a grocery shopping list, and a meal prep "game plan" to make the most of your time in the kitchen as well as your grocery bill. These weekly plans take the guesswork out of macro-counting, meal planning, and grocery shopping!
Designed to give your weekly menu some structure! You'll also have wiggle room for your own food choices based on personal macro goals, what’s in your fridge, dining out, cravings, etc.
Each week includes all new healthy, delicious, and macro-friendly recipes to fit your dietary needs (see below). No more searching the Internet for the recipes or calculating macros!
Speed up your weekly grocery shopping with an organized list that is ready to go when you are - just print or access from your smartphone!
Choose from a Meal Prep Ninja, Perfect Paleo or Whole Food Plant-Based plan. Don't see one that's right for you? Let me know! I will be adding more options in the coming months!
Each week's meal plan includes a "game plan" to walk you through your food prep day as well as the other meals on your menu that week. I offer cooking tips and tricks to make the whole process easier!
Your meal plans, recipes, and shopping lists are downloadable as soon as you place your order, so they're ready to go when you are! You can print or save them onto your desktop or view on your tablet or smartphone (no expiration on what you’ve already received).
I LOVE the macro meal plans! And, so far, my husband has liked all of the meals (and ate all of the kale burgers), which is HUGE! I am so excited to keep with it!
I've never been one to search for recipes on Pinterest or spend hours online looking for recipes, so this has been absolutely perfect to have the shopping list and meal prep plan already figured out.
I just made the Creamy Spaghetti Squash Broccoli Bake, and it was amazing! My family loved it!
Each week of your meal plan includes a brand new, diet-specific (and flexible) meal plan to use as a framework for the upcoming week. Your meal plan includes 5 macro-friendly and balanced recipes, including breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, and even dessert ideas. Also included is a grocery shopping list as well as a meal prep "game plan" to make your time in the kitchen as easy as possible. As soon as you place your order, you'll have access to all of the weekly meal plans, which takes the guesswork out of planning, grocery shopping, and cooking. You'll also receive a "macro quick guide" to get you started with tracking, and you'll be invited to our private Facebook group where you can find support and ask questions!
The flexible meal plan is not a black and white meal plan because I know how life can go. It’s meant as a guide with plenty of wiggle room for you to swap in your own meals and snacks (as well as desserts, protein shakes, wine, etc.) based on your macronutrient goals, what’s in your fridge, social activities/dining out, and cravings. The last thing I want is for you to feel "off track" because you aren't able to stick to a meal plan. Having an adaptable meal plans gives you the option to adjust as needed, especially if events or activities pop up or you have a bunch of leftovers to use up.
You’re in luck! I offer 3 options for customers with special diet needs: The Perfect Paleo Plan (grain/gluten- and dairy-free), Whole Food Plant-Based (vegetarian and easily modifiable to vegan), and Meal Prep Ninja Plan (focused on meal prep). While these plans aren’t custom to the individual, they are easily modifiable. If you would like specific diet recommendations, you can always ask for suggestions in our private Facebook group or sign up to work with a nutrition coach one-on-one.
The Weekly Meal Prep Power Hour is a weekly flexible meal plan with macro-friendly, diet-specific recipes and a grocery shopping list to help you with your meal planning while keeping your eats interesting and exciting. If you would like a custom macro calculation, you can purchase one at discounted price when you sign up for the subscription plan.
CNC 1-on-1 Macro Coaching provides you with personal macro goals as well as nutrition coaching (on the 4, 8, and 12-week plans). Our goal with the 1-on-1 coaching is to give you the tools to track macros on your own – either via Quick Guide provided with the “Just the Macros” plan or with the help of a coach over 4, 8 or 12 weeks.
The number of servings per recipe vary from 1-8, and it will be clearly stated on the recipe and within your plan. A lot of the time, extra servings will be used as leftovers later in the week. You can also freeze extra servings for future use or have you family members eat them up!
I can’t tell you how much time (and money) I've wasted calculating macros and searching for the perfect recipes. Who has time for that?! I always wished there was someone to just tell me what to eat and figure out nutrition facts and easiest way to prep that was worth my time. Basically, with the CNC Weekly Macro Meal Plan you get to skip all of the nonsense and get right down to business with exactly what you need: A flexible meal plan and easy-to-make macro-friendly recipes, which are good for you and your family!
Yes! I select recipes, especially the ones for dinner, that the whole family can enjoy together. No more chicken breast and steamed broccoli for dinner! The last thing I want is for you to have your face in your phone calculating macros at dinnertime and thinking you can’t have any fun or eat anything normal. I want you to be able to incorporate these recipes into your everyday life and share them with the people you love, so the majority of these recipes are ones that your family will enjoy too!
The plans are not custom to an individual's macro goals. Instead, they provide a guide for your meals and snacks each week. You'd then fill in the gaps with regard to tracking macros on your own. If you purchase a macro meal plan subscription, you can purchase a personalized macro calculation at a discounted price.
Perfect Paleo is dairy-free and gluten-free. There's actually a lot of cross-over between the two plans and their recipes, but the Paleo plan doesn't include ingredients like oats, beans, cheese, etc. Both plans include whole, real foods.
The weekly macro meal plans are a framework for your week, so those blank spots are for you to fill in with your own meals and snacks. The plan is meant as a guide with wiggle room for you to swap in your own meals and snacks (as well as desserts, protein shakes, wine, etc.) based on your macronutrient goals, what’s in your fridge, social activities/dining out, and cravings.
