Remember when I mentioned developing new recipes and hinted at a fun project that was in the works? Behind the scenes, Julie, Brittany, Lindsay and I were creating a meal planning resource that helps to simplify the dinner routine and change up the recipe rotation. It’s so easy to get stuck in habits or ruts, so I always look forward to trying new recipes that I know I can make quickly.

Gina, Brittany, Lindsay, JulieThis ebook includes 4 weeks of healthy recipes, plus a full grocery list for each week, along with tips on prepping in advance.

When Julie first approached me about working together on this, I was like “YES!!!” Not only because I love creating healthy recipes, but also because this is something that we needed in our own kitchen. I’ve already made a handful of the recipes (they are SO GOOD) and am going to be making my way through the weekly plans now that the fall schedule insanity is in full swing.

I don’t know about you guys, but when I get dinner on the table nowadays, I want to run around high-fiving everyone. “I DID IT! I managed to scrounge up something and actually cook it in between working, teaching, keeping our adventurous baby from injuring herself and our preschooler entertained. WE MADE IT!!!” haha

Having a meal plan has changed my world. If I don’t take the time to plan out our groceries and meals in advance, it’s a quick downslide to takeout city. It’s only for convenience sake, because I prefer to make our meals at home. (They’re cheaper, they taste better/fresher, and you know what’s in the food!) This ebook really breaks it all down, and also has a ton of new, delicious family-friendly recipes. Liv has already requested Brittany’s Paleo chicken tenders again.

Here are the BBQ chicken tacos with stone fruit salsa:

    What a fun idea! Love how you guys teamed up on this ebook. I’m sure that will help so many people.

  2. Lorna on October 5, 2016 at 5:04 am

    I’m excited to give these recipes a try! Between work, finding time for the gym and a 10 month old (not to mention new jobs and moving in the last few months), it’s hard to put together healthy meals at home. They all look delicious!

    • Fitnessista on October 5, 2016 at 10:33 pm

      thank you, friend! please let me know how you like it 🙂

  3. Kelli @ Hungry Hobby on October 5, 2016 at 6:02 am

    Yum, I’m all about quick and easy dinners! I hate those nights you look in the fridge and think, “eggs?” As the only quick option!

    • Fitnessista on October 5, 2016 at 10:33 pm

      hahah! i could eat eggs for every meal

  4. Jessica @ Semi-Sweet Tooth on October 5, 2016 at 6:51 am

    I got your email last night and just saw Julie’s post – I am SO excited about this book. I know you guys are all meal planning gurus and I cannot WAIT to give these meals a shot.

    Love the teamwork, too. Community over competition… always.

    Love this!
    XO, Jessica

      thank you so much, friend- i appreciate it!!

  5. Christy L. on October 5, 2016 at 7:23 am

    Hey Gina! How focused are the meal plans around meat? Do you think we would find it useful as a veg family?

    • Allison on October 5, 2016 at 12:07 pm

      I’m wondering the same thing!!

    • Fitnessista on October 5, 2016 at 10:32 pm

      i’d say they’re about 2/3 meat? are you vegan or vegetarian? i think they would be easy to modify if you’re vegetarian but vegan could be more challenging

      • Christy L. on October 6, 2016 at 3:30 am

        We are vegetarian, and will also eat fish from time to time. Thanks!

  6. Taylor on October 5, 2016 at 7:38 am

    Fun!! I totally agree with you that if I don’t meal plan, it becomes a take out night or something quick.

    • Fitnessista on October 5, 2016 at 10:32 pm

      so so true. it can be tricky without a plan

  7. Ginette on October 5, 2016 at 10:09 am

    Congratulations! This ebook is such a fantastic idea. I hate meal planning, but I know it’s the best way to ensure that we eat healthy food all week long. I love the idea of having everything laid out for me. It saves me time and energy to do more of what I love to do on the weekend- relax! Thanks for sharing, I just downloaded it and can’t wait to try out the recipes. Best of luck, and I hope a second book is on the horizon!

    • Fitnessista on October 5, 2016 at 10:31 pm

      thank you so much for ordering! please let me know what you think 🙂

  8. Tammy on October 5, 2016 at 12:42 pm

    Hi Gina, I’ve been wanting something like this available, so this is fantastic! I am in Canada though and was wondering if it’s in US currency? Thank you!

    • Fitnessista on October 5, 2016 at 1:20 pm

      yes, it’s in US dollar, but i wonder if it will convert it for you??

  9. Cassie on October 5, 2016 at 12:43 pm

    Congratulations! I will definitely check it out! Any suggestions for food allergies or alternative diets?

    • Fitnessista on October 5, 2016 at 1:19 pm

      yes, we have paleo recipes, lots of gluten-free, and some veg/vegan

  10. Jessica on October 5, 2016 at 6:18 pm


    Awesome news! – congrats on the launch of this product. I follow all of you gals and so I KNOW this ebook will be fantastic!
    I’m curious if nutritional content is given for any of the recipes?

    Thanks so much and congrats again!

    • Fitnessista on October 5, 2016 at 10:29 pm

      thank you so much!
      we didn’t include that, but since they all contain simple ingredients, i think it would be pretty to input into my fitness pal or something similar

  11. Anna Becker on October 6, 2016 at 11:49 am

    Congratulations! I’ve been thinking about doing something with my favorite recipes, but don’t even know where to start. You’re inspiring.

    • Fitnessista on October 6, 2016 at 2:28 pm

      thank you, friend! hope you enjoy it!

  12. Rose on October 8, 2016 at 7:44 am
