We have kids and husbands, too, so we get it—you need a Family Meal Plan that the whole family will eat! Scrumptious, easy-to-follow, family-friendly meals that follow the principles of the Mediterranean Diet to provide optimal nutrition. You want to feed your family the best—and have them eat it. Read on for more!
The Importance of Family Nutrition
If you are reading this, you probably know that the Mediterranean Diet has been named the Best Diet Overall by health experts for three years in a row. Decades of research have shown how a Mediterranean Lifestyle can protect against diseases like heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer’s not just now, but for your family’s future too. Eating this way can improve mood, energy levels, sleep, and weight, too. (More about the benefits here). You want all this for your family and yourself. You want to feel, look, and be great! But it can be hard at the end of a long day to create something yummy and healthy in the kitchen. That’s where we can help!
Having a set of kitchen-tested recipes that are easy to make and scrumptious to eat, with plenty of optional substitutions, is a game-changer! Having a plan takes the stress and guesswork out of food. Imagine how nice it would be to come home to a fridge stocked with the ingredients you need to prepare a dinner that you know will be enjoyable and healthy. We have two awesome options specifically for families: meal plans and recipe books.
For families who want everything done-for-them (except the cooking!), our Mediterranean inspired meal plans are the best choice. You get 21 days of 3 meals per day, plus optional snacks.
These meal plans are created by our registered dietitian Jamie. She has over 5 years of experience working in child nutrition with a Mediterranean flare and has put all her knowledge and expertise into this plan!
Our recipes are designed for any chef. Your older kids may even be able to help (with oversight)! The standard recipes are easy to make, and we provide lots of ideas on how to make meals more customized for your family. We also use leftovers in the plan to make sure that the amount of cooking is attainable for busy families.
Every yummy, family-friendly recipe has been tested and approved to be delicious and kid-accepted. Each comes with a color-photo, so you know exactly what to expect.
We include a grocery list, too, which will save you precious time and money. You won’t be wasting money on impulse purchases at the grocery or unused food in your fridge!
*Note we acknowledge that every family varies in size (and age) making for a variety of nutritional needs for each individual family member. Keep in mind portion sizes may vary from person to person (from toddler to child, teenager to adult). Smaller (or larger) portions may be necessary; a snack list is also available to give you and your family members the flexibility to eat to their hunger. The goal of our meal plans is to help you take the guess work out of meal planning for your family all while incorporating the principles of the Mediterranean Diet so you and your family can achieve optimal health. Meal plans are a tool for you and your family to get started with healthy eating, improve your meal prep and planning skills, explore new recipes, and enjoy healthy and delicious homemade meals.
While some families benefit from a full Meal Plan, other families thrive with a recipe book of tried-and-true, family-friendly, Mediterranean Diet recipes. With our cookbooks, gone are the days of cooking multiple dinners for all your family members!
Carrot cake overnight oats, as a make-ahead, grab-and-go option, takes the stress out of your morning.
Pack able lunches like Goddess Salad will keep you energized and satisfied for hours.
Amazing dinner options like Pesto Chicken Bake and Goat Cheese Quesadillas take standard kid-fare and make it more nutritious and interesting.
We offer lots of ideas for simple substitutions and tips for helping your kids get more interested in healthy food. (As a registered dietitian, Jamie has worked with children of all ages for over 5 years, and Ashley is a mom of three. Read more about them)
