Meal Preparation & Planning Support

Feeding our families is one of the most essential and important roles we share each day. Having food planned means having stress-free meals, as well as the occasional night off from cooking too! I look forward to sharing my everyday tips and resources for meal planning and creating your own convenience and freezer meals for those days when you need a break from your busy schedule.

I have years of experience as a nutritionist, foods teacher and as a home cook trying to find a system for feeding my family while also working a full-time job. During that time I’ve developed an expertise in meal planning, created kitchen short-cuts, and I’ve explored meal preparation options to make getting food on the table a breeze. My goal is to help you find food that makes you and your family healthy, happy and that can get on the table quickly. The Messy Little Kitchen is your ultimate guide to meal planning, meal preparation and living well.

As a trained nutritionist & food educator, I've developed a free Meal Planning Resource Library for my readers that helps your family develop an ongoing meal plan that will work for everyone, so you aren’t asking “what’s for dinner tonight?” You can access meal planning templates (weekly, biweekly, monthly), a grocery list template, meal planning pantry essentials checklist, 5 pantry "meal kit" recipes & grocery list and a weekly meal plan for working families.

I also share tips and tricks on how to begin meal preparation and planning as part of your busy family lifestyle over on the blog (see posts below), with tips to engage everyone in the family. Let’s start planning together!
