Q. I did the free sample lessons. Is there more/what do I get if I buy the course?

If you're doing the free sample version of the Killer Meal Planning Course, you have access to 5 meal planning lessons plus the 'Welcome' lesson, and this page you're on now.

The full course includes an awesome workbook, meal planning templates, and recipe resources, as well as over 20 easy to digest (pun totally intended) lessons covering cant-miss-them topics like:

  • Why willpower will get you nowhere, and what to do instead.
  • How to choose recipes without overwhelm, so you can stop falling into the black hole of Pinterest's 'food and drink' section.
  • 3 awesome ways to practice portion control, so you never have to worry about overeating.
  • How to get in and ou of the grocery store in 30 minutes - you can spend more time doing what you love.
  • Exactly what to do when cravings hit or your plan falls apart. You never have to "start again on Monday" - you'll finally be one of those ladies other people look at and say "she's got it so sorted I wish I could be like that."

There is an easy, 7-day money back guarantee. If you buy the course and it's not what you expected, just email me and I'll hit that 'issue refund' button on Paypal, no argument.


Q. I got too hungry and went off my plan. What do I do?

Firstly, pop back into the ‘What to do when you slip’ lesson and put the ‘four F’s’ into action. Then, as part of your final ‘F’, identify why you got so hungry. Did you not plan enough food? Do you need to play with your meal timing? Is your macronutrient balance not quite right?

Once you’ve got an idea, alter your meal plan so you’re eating enough at the right times to keep you going.


Q. I wasn’t hungry, so I didn’t eat what I had planned. Now I have too much food. Help?

This happens, especially if you’ve started using more whole foods in your meal plan. You’ve got a few options here:

  1. Freeze/store the ingredients for one of your meals later in the week, and use up your leftovers.
  2. Dump everything into a big pot of soup - great for any meal and always freezes well.
  3. Take an extra pack of leftovers to work and share with a friend.

Q. My food keeps going bad before I can eat it! What do I do?

Ok, this happens to everyone - especially in the beginning. Take note of what’s going bad and take steps to:

  1. Freeze or package the food for longer storage
  2. Plan meals with less perishable ingredients for later in the week (think hardy veg, frozen meat and veg, canned goods, dry goods)
  3. Go back to the ‘Shopping List’ lesson and learn about top-up days.

Q. I don’t know what to cook. What do I do?

Use the meal brainstorm on page 5 of your workbook - no need to get fancy right now.


Q. I don’t feel like planning. What do I do?

Just do it.

Seriously, you’ll thank yourself a million times over later in the week. Sit down, pull out your workbook list of all those meals you brainstormed, and put them into a plan. Save the plan to reuse another week, and eventually, you won’t really have to worry about meal planning anymore. A little hard work now will make everything 100% easier later.


Q. I’m not in the mood for what I have planned. What do I do?

This happens to us all. What sounded good on Sunday afternoon when you made you plan, doesn’t feel so right on Thursday night. That’s cool - you’ve got a few options here.

  1. Take a look at the ingredients you’ve got for that meal - can you combine them in a different way to make something more appealing? Swap pasta for salad (or visa-versa), use different sauces or spices, roast instead of boil… anything appeal?
  2. Can you swap with another meal on your plan? Just shuffle things around to fit your mood.
  3. Be very wary of self-sabotage here. Your brain is a slippery sucker and will try to convince you of all kinds of things - do you really not want that meal, or is something else going on?
  4. Suck it up, get in there, and get it done - always an option, too.

Q. Where did you get the cool pictures in this course?

I made them, but the icons come from:

All food and drink icons made by madebyoliver from www.flaticon.com
All people icons made by Pixel perfect from www.flaticon.com
All workbook/course content icons made by Popcorn Arts from www.flaticon.com
