Simplified School Lunch CourseBut simplifying doesn’t end with the lunchbox. Let’s simplify breakfast, snacks, and dinner, too.

Lunch isn’t the only thing we need to think about when it comes to nourishing a family. Lunch is only one part of a greater whole. As a member of Simplified School Lunch, you’ll walk away with the foundational strategies, routines, and tools needed to not only simplify the lunchbox but also food prep and meal planning. These tools and strategies will empower you to also take steps to simplify planning for and making breakfast, dinner, and even snacks.

This course is for you if…

  • You believe nourishing your kids with real food is important, but need the tools and strategies to help you simplify how you get this food in the lunchbox (and in their tummies).

  • You struggle with the endless need to think of new ideas for the lunchbox and always find yourself packing the same peanut butter and jam sandwich. You know there’s a different way, you just need help with unlocking routines and systems that will keep you inspired, your life simple, and your family nourished.

  • You want to “work smarter, not harder” when it comes to planning and making food for lunch as well as breakfast and dinner. You want to use strategies, like food prep and meal planning, but you’re just not sure how to make these work for you. Maybe you’ve even tried these strategies before but they felt too time-consuming to actually work in real life.

What members have to say...

 

“Going through the program is definitely giving me the energy and inspiration I need to keep going.”

I am working my way through your school lunch plan and am loving it. A real food diet is not new for me, but I have to say, I am so inspired and excited by your recipes. We’ve made a lot of changes in our home but had been falling back into some old habits I’m not proud of. Going through the program is definitely giving me the energy and inspiration I need to keep going.

“The week ran so much better and I wasn’t stressed out about meals.”

It took a huge weight off my shoulders to have everything planned out and some meal components prepped! Yay!! The week ran so much better and I wasn’t stressed out about meals.

From overwhelm to simplicity...


In 2015, my oldest child, Piper, started school. My goal was to pack fun and nourishing lunches. You know, the kind of lunches you see all over Pinterest. I was going to be THAT mom. I thought this would be easy to do, but it wasn’t. My excitement for packing lunch was soon replaced by overwhelm, a lack of ideas for what to pack, and pure dread for even opening the lunchbox. That year, I struggled big time. I struggled with how to pack nourishing lunches and somehow also make healthy dinners and breakfasts (now at an earlier time than ever before) and keep up with life.

That’s when it hit me: This isn’t suddenly going to get easier. If I want things to change, I have to be intentional about changing my approach. I have to find a way to make this work and enjoy it.


Over the past four years, I’ve worked on doing exactly that. I’ve created a meal planning system and food prep routine that allows me to not only simplify packing lunch, but also how I approach breakfast and dinner. 

I now have a system for making sure that I never run out of ideas for the lunchbox (or breakfast or dinner). I know what I’m packing for lunch (and serving for breakfast and dinner) before the week even begins and I use this plan to prepare food in advance. We eat healthier than ever before, but we spend less time thinking about food and making meals during the busy week.

 

I hear from so many families today who want to ditch ultra-processed food and eat real food, but struggle to plan and prepare nourishing food while also keeping up with life. My passion is for helping families break free from the overwhelm and experience the joy and simplicity of a nourished, real food lifestyle.

“Getting prepped for lunches in advance has literally saved me so much stress, and it’s just two days in!”

My oldest started kindergarten yesterday and I’ve been so overwhelmed with everything, but getting prepped for lunches in advance has literally saved me so much stress, and it’s just two days in! Thank you, thank you!

FAQ


What age is this for?
My kids are currently 7 and 9-years-old, so my current level of expertise is with young children. That said, you can use these strategies to simplify packing lunch for any age. The actual lunchbox ideas may need to be adjusted to work for younger children and adults. For example, you may need to adjust the serving size of the vegetable or the main. The Simplified School Lunch Community is made up of parents with young children and older children alike, as well as grandparents.

Can't I just use leftovers to pack the lunchbox?
Of course. Using leftovers is a great way to pack real food in the lunchbox. In the prep section, I’ll teach you how to strategically prep food so you have leftovers to use in the lunchbox (as well as breakfast and dinner). The key is being intentional. Without an intentional plan, it’s difficult to “just use leftovers.”

I homeschool, will this work for me?
Yes, 100%. This resource will help you intentionally simplify lunch (and other meals) so you have more time to do what you love. This resource is for anyone wanting to simplify real food, with an emphasis on serving real food for lunch. The snack guide bonus is also perfect for homeschool families.

We have allergies (egg, dairy, gluten, etc.) in our family, do you address packing lunch in this way?
This resource is about helping you simplify real food in the lunchbox. This resource does not address specific allergies; however, the strategies taught apply to everyone. Many of the recipes shared call for eggs, gluten (einkorn, spelt, wheat), and dairy. Modifications are suggested, when available. You’ll find a cheatsheet in the recipe book that clearly labels options that are dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free, and vegetarian-friendly. My children attend a nut-free school, so the majority (not all), of the options take nut-free schools into consideration. In the recipe book, 76 recipes are gluten-free (or may be modified to be gluten-free), 64 recipes are dairy-free (or may be modified to be dairy-free), 70 recipes are egg-free, 83 recipes are nut-free, and 66 recipes are vegetarian-friendly.

Why is enrollment only open for a short time?
Enrollment is only open for a short time because the course comes with a private, members-only Facebook community. After the enrollment time window, we need to be able to focus on supporting and helping current students.

Can I print the recipe book, lunch kit, snack guide, and additional PDF guides, worksheets, and cheat sheets ?
Yes, you can! All PDF guides, books, templates, and cheatsheets are professionally-designed and printer-friendly.

How long will I have access to the course?
As a student, you enjoy lifetime access to the course. We use a mobile and user-friendly platform called Teachable to host the course. You can return to the course whenever you want and take the course and visit the guides and cheat sheets and recipe book. Teachable also has an app that you can download from the App Store. I highly recommend this route if you want to access the course from your phone or tablet. This means you can watch or listen to the lessons anywhere: while cooking dinner, on a plane, waiting in carline, or during soccer practice!

Will I get future updates?
Yes, you will! We always take care of students! Live Simply is known for AMAZING customer service and support. As we update the course (bonus lessons are currently being added on a monthly basis), you automatically receive updates. Investing in the course now, locks you into the current price so you’ll receive updates without paying extra.

The course sounds amazing, but I don't know if I'm ready.
The course is an investment in yourself and your family. It’s an investment in simplifying your life, nourishing your child, and your sanity (because we all know that serving and eating real food takes thought and work). The course is designed to give you all the tools you need to simplify real food and pack this food in the lunchbox. The course saves you precious time since you don’t have to spend hours searching online, reading books, and trying to piece together all that information. Instead, you can work through one class per week, have all the tools needed to simplify, and immediately take action on what you’re learning. You can start simplifying now and save yourself a lot of frustration! It’s taken me years to learn how to make real food work for my family (in a kid-friendly, budget-friendly, and time-friendly way). I want your journey to be easier and that’s why I created the course!
