The Busy Mom’s Guide to Creating Your Own Meal Plans – Part 2 (MORE RECIPES)

Cook faster and healthier meals

In part one of this series we talked about how to use a recipe template to plan out your meals as a faster way to cook healthy and delicious meals for you and your family.

You can read that post here: The Busy Mom’s Guide Part 1

Since that video came out we’ve had a lot of conversations about food, cooking, and building a plan of action to eat healthy and ditch diets forever.

One lesson I’ve learned from my wife is that a good plan always, always, needs a list, so today we are going to go over how to create a proper shopping list that will help you lose fat and build muscle.

Every good list needs to be filled with good recipes, here are two more of my favorite no brainers

A little sweet and a little savory, a lot yummy.

2 Large servings, 3-4 small

1lb ground turkey breast
5 mushrooms, chopped
1/2 small onion, chopped
1/2 apple, chopped
1/2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp lemon juice
1 omega 3 egg
1/2 tsp salt
Garlic and pepper to taste
Fry up the onions until they are slightly translucent, then add in the apples and mushrooms stir fry for another 5 to 8 minutes.
Place all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix. Form 2 large patties and broil 4 inches from the heat (6-8min per side).
Pierce the burgers with a fork, if the juices run clear they are done.

Nuclear Sweet Potatoes

Nuclear sweet Potato

Sweet potatoes are a crazy healthy carbohydrate source and I love them served up all sorts of ways. This is the easiest and most versatile


Sweet potatoes (1-1000)

Wash and dry the potatoes
Stab them with a knife a few times
Put them in a bowl/dish
Cover them with a damp paper towel
Microwave them for 5 minutes
Move the potatoes around
Microwave for another 5

If cooking just 1 it should be done in 5-10 minutes

Keep nuking, rotating, and checking the potatoes until they are soft to the touch, which can be anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes

Don’t be lazy. Check every 5 minutes!

After that you can eat them straight out with coconut oil and cinnamon OR let them cool, peel the skin off, and store them for later, OR peel them while they are warm (careful!), and mash them up.

Remember, food is one part of the equation, and to get the results we want (lose fat, build muscle, feel good) there’s more to it than just food.
