I had to wait until the weather actually cooled down, you know?
And that it was official on that calendar… to finally admit that Fall is here.
To finally make that shift into the cozy, earlier evenings, to cooking warm meals inside, and to actually enjoying the process of moving into these slower, more intentional months.
And, I have to admit. When I cook a little homemade dinner, even after a crazy day, I feel like I’m winning at life. It’s like this soothing little routine that says- you got this, mama.
The ability to nourish ourselves and our loved ones with the magic of real food is both a gift and a necessity for a healthy life. But let’s not forget the importance of efficiency and simplicity, especially as the seasons change.
Amidst the pumpkin-spiced everything, crisp leaves, and football games, this season invites us to gather, share, and sprinkle a little nourishing magic of good food with our loved ones. As our rhythms shift with the seasons, we all could use a touch of inspiration and encouragement in the kitchen.
So, back and ready to help you do that with ease & joy? The Fall Meal Plan is here & better than ever!
So…. what exactly is the Fall Meal Plan?
The Fall Meal Plan is a four-week collection of downloadable and printable weekly meal plans. Each plan is naturally gluten-free and comes with super-easy, healthy recipes. We’ve also included a weekly printable shopping list that’s perfectly coordinated. This means you can spend less than three hours a week cooking while enjoying gorgeous, healthy real food at every meal.
Here’s why you’ll love it:
a) say goodbye to wasting time searching for healthy recipes, cooking hour-long dinners, or spending marathon hours on meal prep Sundays
b) forget about blowing your budget on eating out all the time because breakfast, lunch and dinner are sorted, and they’re exciting
c) feel better in your daily life and have the energy to conquer it all
d) break free from your mundane recipe routine and discover some new easy gems that will see you through the entire season
e) spend just around three hours or less per week shopping and cooking for all your meals (or just one hour a week if you opt for the Dinner Only meal plan)
f) savor amazing, tried-and-true, simple-to-prepare healthy real food, all #simplyrealhealth style

Q: What if I am a picky eater/am cooking for a picky eater/have food sensitivities?
A: If you’re picky- I think I can change your mind. That’s because we think everything in the plan tastes great and would be worth a try first, even if it’s out of your comfort zone.
If it’s about food sensitivities- all of the recipes are designed for easy swap-outs- whether you are vegetarian, dairy-free or gluten-intolerant (the entire plan is naturally gluten-free and dairy optional).
Q: What if I’m traveling, or have to go out for dinner or lunches on certain days?
A: That’s totally fine! The Meal Plan is meant to give you structure and recipes that use the same ingredients in different ways, so you can modify the plan or start and stop it around your travel schedule easily.
Q: Is anything off-limits? Coffee, wine, desserts, etc?
A: No, nothing is off limits at all. This is not a diet plan– just a way to help you maximize your healthy eating, mix up your routine and get you eating and feeling better without so much effort!
Q: So, what did people think about the last Seasonal Meal Plan?
“Finally a smart, practical way of living and learning about eating and your health. It just makes sense where other fads or diets don’t, for the longterm. The way you feel, the amount of energy I had and my now glowing skin is all the proof I needed. Thank you!” — Janna P.
“I liked the grocery checklist. Correction – LOVED the grocery list. I haven’t wasted food since I started, we’re spending WAY less on our weekly grocery bill and my picky husband LOVES the food. Triple win”- Casey B.
“This is the perfect way to take the thought and stress out of figuring out how to eat correctly. And, I have never felt better in my life!” – John P.
“I feel SO much better. I always thought I was a really healthy eater and this has completely changed my perspective. I have lost weight [a nice side effect], I don’t wake up in the morning with stomach aches, and my skin is clearer– plus so many other things. I’m a real-food convert now!” – Amanda D.
“The meal plan was a pretty easy way to learn how to incorporate healthy habits into your every day life- not just sporadic days here and there. And the food was bomb.com- it definitely got me out of my cooking rut and with some great new favorites. The blog is not even a TINY smidge of the awesome recipes that Sarah gives. I seriously can’t wait for next season to get more!” – Alex G.
“I am feeling more creative and inspired in the kitchen–the fact that it’s with healthy food is even more of a bonus!” – Christine V.
