Weekly Meal Plans for Special Diets

Weekly Meal Plans are designed for people with special dietary needs who want more variety and enjoyment from their meals while keeping the meal planning process as easy and streamlined as possible.

Meal Plans are completely customized to your specific dietary needs and personal tastes. Is cauliflower safe for you to eat, but you're bored with your usual routine of steaming? Your customized Meal Plan might include a recipe for roasted cauliflower with tomatoes, garlic and Kalamata olives. Not a fan of Mediterranean, but love Thai food? Then creamy cauliflower soup with coconut milk, ginger and lemongrass would be a better match for you. 

Meal Plans are appropriate for gluten-free, dairy-free, GAPS, low FODMAP, candida and myriad other special diets.

Includes:
* Custom menu, recipes and shopping list (breakfasts, lunches, snacks and dinners for 7 days)
* Hand-outs with shopping, storing, kitchen and meal-prep tips and instructions

Documents are sent in .pdf format to view on your electronic device or print as you wish.

Price: $200 per meal plan (2-plan minimum)

Multi-Week Meal Plan for LEAP and Elimination Diets

This program is designed for people who are eliminating and re-introducing foods to determine what is, and is not, safe for them to eat. 

The recipes include not only the foods prescribed for your new diet, but the cuisines and flavors that you love most, making you feel delighted instead of deprived. The goal is to be stress-free and motivated so you’ll stay on the diet and reap the maximum health benefits of the process.

Menus are provided weekly to accommodate newly-introduced foods.

Includes:
* Weekly correspondence with your dietician regarding your progress on the diet, with specific information about which foods should be added or eliminated.
* Menus, recipes and shopping lists (breakfasts, lunches, snacks and dinners)
* Hand-outs with shopping, storing, kitchen and meal-prep tips and instructions

Documents are sent in .pdf format to view on your electronic device or print as you wish.

Price: $250/week (2-week minimum)
