Hey friends!

Happy, happy March!  March is one of my favorite times of year and for many reasons — it’s my birthday month (which I share the same b-day as my dad!), it’s when the start of spring is in the air, and it’s my profession’s most favorite health observance — #NationalNutritionMonth 😛

If you follow me, you’ve probably noticed that I like to celebrate a good food holiday — ahem “National Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day”, I see you!  And what I love about celebrating a food day — or month, or week — is that for once, we actually allow ourselves to have fun and enjoy food instead of letting guilt, shame, or embarrassment creep in.  Are you smelling what I’m cooking?

Food holidays can be especially helpful in the kitchen.  In The Meal Planning Method course, I share the value of what I call “recipe starters” — which inspire your recipe research for the week.  (As much as I’d love to spend hours curating recipes to cook, I just don’t have that kind of time!)  A “recipe starter” could be anything from your favorite cooking magazine or food blogger, to leftover ingredients in the fridge OR… a food holiday!  Just check out all these awesome days I found on National Today to help inspire you and make your meal planning exciting each week.
