The meal plans following clean eating principles by no processed foods, gluten-free, and low-to-no sugar.
The meal plans are what I call "flexible." Some recipes may contain meat but every recipe offers vegetarian and vegan alternatives.
I personally primarliy follow a plant-based diet but incorporate seafood and dairy occasionally. I work with women to uncover what food makes them feel great and helps them build a healthier family. Through the program we work together to figure out what works best for your specific, beautiful body!

The meal plans and shopping lists contain breakfast and dinner for two adults and two children and are easily scalable.

WHY I CREATED
HEALTHY MOMS FIRST...
Four years ago I was stressed out. Sad and overwhelmed. I knew I had to make a change and I started working with a health coach. I cut out alcohol and sugar and started being more mindful about what I was eating and the affect it had on my body.
My coach had me get up a little earlier in the morning. Drink hot water with lemon. Meditate. Journal.
I was resistant at first. I didn't think I needed these things but I was tired. Tired of feeling unfocused, listless, and impatient.
Over time I began to notice a difference. I lost weight and had more energy. I was happier and more focused.
But there was even more. I was more patient as a mother, more filled with joy at little things, and more present in my relationships.
Now, when I struggle, I have a support system and the knowledge I have the tools to make it through.
When I am eating well and taking care of myself, my energy is off the charts and I wake up happy and excited.
The best part is that these weren't huge changes, just little steps that I integrated into my life between all the other things I had to do.
I created Healthy Moms first to share those things so that you can feel this way too.
