I put together this meal plan to help bring new flavors and seasonal produce back onto grocery lists for those who are short on time but value their nutrition, time, budget and flavor. There is more to food and cooking than meal prepping basic produce and consolidating it into a bowl, which I did countless times during my years in college. I’ve had a good amount of friends ask me specific questions about cooking, like what to buy, how to change up their routine and what to do to bring flavor without sacrificing clean eating and quick meals. Cooking doesn’t have to be time consuming or difficult, so I wrote this seasonal meal plan to help!
I started drinking coffee at approximately 16 and never stopped. Three months before I turned 23, I was experiencing a whole slew of digestive autoimmune symptoms and after hours of research, reading, and sorting through functional medicine approaches, I landed on a strict elimination program that would help reset my body, digestion, hormones, mood, and overall wellbeing. The real kicker? No coffee.
