When it takes that much time and effort to put food in your mouth, it’s easy to fall into the same old habits and cravings that you know aren’t good for you.
(Especially if the healthy stuff tastes terrible.)
Have you ever stressed out trying to figure out how to get balanced nutrition?
Or asked yourself, “How do I plan meals that give me all the daily nutrients I need?”
Do you find there are just way too many recipes and diets and programs out there to decide what’s best for you?
We live in information-overload, much of it conflicting, and it leaves us overwhelmed into inaction.
People often feel so frustrated they decide it’s easier to just do nothing than stress about what they eat.

“When you put out an email about your weight loss plan my husband says “maybe you should give this a shot”. At first I was insulted (as you know how hard it is when your husband says something about your weight). But I signed on! It has only been a week and I feel great! I am NOT hungry at all, and all of your recipes are absolutely delicious. You and I think alike cause you don’t skimp on sweets… I am sitting here eating delicious oatmeal raisin cookies for breakfast and I can!
THANK YOU!!! ”

“After 3 weeks on your meal plan my cholesterol went down from 245 to 196, and after 4 months my cholesterol was 173. I haven’t had to take medication for acid reflux as well, and I feel my digestive system is healed. My sister who is 59 is considering eating healthier now because of the changes she has seen in me. I am very grateful for your work. I couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
– Sincerely, Jacqueline
“My husband, son (age 21) and I feel great … satisfied and energetic. We all are runners (our son ran his first marathon in November … my husband and I stick with 5k’s). I’ve been plating our meals at dinner, and your recommended portions must be accurate, because no one has asked for seconds or been too full to finish. I love the simplicity of the recipes and am amazed at how tasty they are with just basic whole foods. A big plus: our meat and dairy-loving daughter (age 24) has taken leftovers twice for lunch :)”
“I feel so powerful when I go grocery shopping! Walking into the store knowing that at least 95% of the items that are for sale are of absolutely no interest to me any more makes me feel really cocky! And it’s all thanks to you, because even though I’ve dabbled with a vegetarian diet in the distant past, it wasn’t until I started with your meal plan that I had the information to know what to do with the food that I was bringing home.”
– Lauren, Vienna, ME
“I’ve struggled with the vegan lifestyle because I really don’t think I knew how to eat a well rounded diet. Because I run twelve miles a week and lift weights I need to eat a balanced diet. There are so many wonderful vegan cookbooks out there…I’ve bought so many!…but I don’t know how to plan a day’s worth of food. Thank you for being a great teacher. I’m kind of getting a hang of what I should be eating. Your recipes rock!”
– Melanie, Warren OH
“I never knew I could cook, but it appears that I can. And right now I’m madly in love with you! LOL The food is beautiful and colorful and delicious, and I feel so good to know that I can make something so tasty and healthy. Thank you for making this so easy. It’s exactly what I needed: a simple recipe, directions on how to put it all together, and a grocery list of what I need to buy in order to cook for the coming week. Even washing dishes is simpler.”
– Lauren, Gunney ME
“I feel great because of the food I’m eating and the support I am getting from you to do what I have wanted to do for so long, but haven’t been able to successfully achieve. My husband and sons are starting to try on their own to make whole foods vegan choices! I’ve lost 9 pounds since changing my diet to this plan. I’ve never been more excited to continue on this path.”
– Bridget, Minneapolis MN

Oh, you’re in luck. I create a lot of chocolate-flavored recipes in my plans because I know there are a lot of chocoholics out there (myself included). I include dark chocolate sometimes, and I also show you how to make super healthy chocolate treats – I even make it for breakfast somtimes. Breakfast is my favorite time to eat dessert…
Well, ‘weird’ is a bit subjective, but I keep the ingredient list for my plans as simple as possible, using vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, seeds, and seasonings that you should be able to find at any major supermarket. There are a few things that might be tricky to find (like coconut oil, quinoa, nutritional yeast) but the good news is that those things are now really easy to find and order online. If you really can’t get hold of something, or it’s too expensive where you are (avocados where I am right now are $3 each!!!), just let me know and I’ll help you figure out an alternative.
I designed the plan to be as easy as possible for people who aren’t used to cooking for themselves, or aren’t used to cooking whole plant foods. I put the recipes and meals together using as few packaged foods as possible, so you will be learning how to cook things from scratch, but you can totally do it.
Even the most beginner cooks have told me they weren’t overwhelmed, and actually enjoyed gaining confidence in their skills in the kitchen. I put together some articles and videos showing you all the important things you need to know about cooking vegetables, whole grains and beans and using seasonings so that you shouldn’t have any trouble with the recipes.
“You know what? I hate planning meals. I hate thinking too much about food, I just want to enjoy it. That’s why I spent time on education to become a nutritionist, to know how to get all the nutrients I need to be healthy.
And I hate meals that taste bland and boring. That’s why I spent years cooking meal after meal, and in cooking courses, to know how to make healthy foods taste amazing.
Now I know how to make healthy meals easily on a regular basis, without taking much time out of my day, and getting a variety of foods and amazing flavors.
Now that I’m in the habit, I find it saves me time and effort, plus I don’t waste any of the beautiful foods that used to wind up rotting at the back of the fridge.
It’s easier than I could have imagined to eat super healthy food all the time and it makes me feel better than I thought possible!
These veganook-me:plans are the culmination of all my education, trial and error, disasters, and successes. I want to make this effortless for you, without having to go through all that.”

Or if you answered with a “yeah, kinda… I guess…” then read more of the details until you’re excited:
You’ll see exactly how to get all the nutrients you need – even protein and iron – by eating a variety of healthy, whole plant foods.
Even the USDA knows that’s possible: “Vegetarian diets can meet all the recommendations for nutrients.“
The program will give you tasty, whole plant foods, and meals that are simple to put together on a daily basis.
Everything is laid out for you, so you don’t have to do any of the planning or thinking – just follow along and get all the nutrients you need.
The program is set up to flow through week to week, but it’s all there for you to work through on your own pace if you want to go faster or slower.
That said, if you don’t like following plans exactly, you are totally allowed to improvise off the plan.
You can swap recipes around, or make one a few times if you prefer it to another. If you follow the outline, and get the variety of healthy whole plant foods in the recipes, you’ll still find the results you want.
