CNC Weekly Macro Plans FAQs

Rectangle 58

Hi, I'm Tina!

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.

Fit + Fueled

An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.
Get all the tools to take your physique into your hands. Over six-months, you’ll transform your life, mindset, and body in this program that’s part-course, part-coaching, and part-community.

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 quite simple, especially if you have recipes with the macros listed right at your fingertips!

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, which why I created the CNC Weekly Macro Meal Plans – to take the hassle out of meal planning and macro-counting! You get macro meal prep recipes delivered right to your inbox.

Each month, you’ll receive 4 flexible meal plans (one each week) with macro-friendly recipes (no calculations needed) to use as a framework for the upcoming week. Each week includes whole food recipes, 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. Our weekly plans take the guesswork out of macro-counting, meal planning, and grocery shopping!

What’s included with the meal plan subscription?

Each week, you’ll receive a brand new, diet-specific (flexible) meal plan to use as a framework for the upcoming week. Your meal plan will include 5 macro-friendly and balanced recipes delivered right to your inbox, 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. Every Thursday, your new recipes will arrive in your inbox, which takes the guesswork out of meal planning, grocery shopping, and cooking the next week. 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! 

What does “flexible” meal plan mean exactly?

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.

What if I have a special diet?

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 Master Plan (real, whole foods). While these plans aren’t custom to the individually, 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 coach one-on-one.

What’s the difference between the weekly plans and macro coaching plans?

The CNC Weekly Macro Meal Plan 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 Macro Coaching + Plans provides you with personal macro goals as well as nutrition coaching (on the 4- and 8-week plans). Our goal with the CNC Macro Coaching + Plans is to give you the tools to track macros on your own – either via our 16-page “Getting Started Guide” provided with the “Just the Macros” plan or with the help of a coach over 4, 8 or 12 weeks.

How many servings do the meal plans include?

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!

What makes these meal plans different?

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, grocery list, and easy-to-make macro-friendly recipes, which are good for you and your family!

Are the recipes family-friendly?

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!

Are the meal plans based on an individual’s macro goals?

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.

When do I receive my meal plan?

Meal plans are sent out on Thursdays, so keep a look out in your inbox!

What’s the difference between the Perfect Paleo and Meal Prep Ninja Plans?

The Perfect Paleo Plan 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. Additionally, the Meal Prep Ninja plan is delivered weekly via email while you’ll receive all 12 weeks of the Perfect Paleo plan at once.

On the areas in the meal plan that are blank, are we supposed to be fasting?

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.

What is the cancellation policy?

With the Perfect Paleo and Whole Foods Plant-Based plans, you’ll receive all 12 weeks at once when you place your order.

For the Meal Prep Ninja plan, you can cancel your subscription at any time. When you do, you’ll have access through your paid billing cycle (so if you purchase the 6-month membership and cancel after 3 months, you won’t receive a refund for the payment you’ve already made, but you will have access to the new meal plans and other resources until the last day of your pre-paid period).

If you choose a monthly membership, your first week will be free, which I hope gives you a risk-free chance to try a meal plan before you commit to a longer membership!
