Meal Stacking

Meal planning and prepping can seem like a daunting task at times, especially when you consider how much kids like to snack! In the video below, Melisa shares some of her tricks to creating a successful meal plan. One way she focuses on is menu stacking. Menu stacking acts as a sort of domino effect where meals/foods you make earlier in the week are utilized again for other meals later in the week. What are some of your favorite meal planning tricks?

Menu stacking discussion begins at 11:24 / 52:18

01:28     more than 10 years and we are really in

01:31     the place so we are expanding and

03:12     lot of fun I think you'll also learn a

03:14     lot about yourself it is a very limited

03:16     program so each one of the programs

03:18     we're going to talk about we are only

03:20     taking a few people huh because we don't

03:22     want to be overrun and because we want

03:25     to make sure we can give you the service

03:27     that you need by doing one unless so we

03:29     can not take a hundred people we can

03:31     really only take like ten people a month

03:34     and and so if there's a program that you

03:37     want to be you know really looking into

03:39     you I would take care of that in the

03:41     next day or so because it's it's going

03:43     to fill up very quickly for our first

03:45     like maiden voyage month and so the

03:47     program includes like I said one-on-one

03:49     with me it's a workbook for you to go

03:51     through that's got some graphics in it

03:53     and got some help helps in it and so it

03:56     will include oh he's right anyway it

03:59     will include some phone calls with me

04:02     and we'll be doing a lot of like

04:04     intensive work together so if that's

04:08     something that you're interested in

04:09     please by all means check out Melissa

04:11     Nelson calm for a slash reboot and

04:14     that's like a me in another Hmong

04:16     situation you know the two of us working

04:18     together

04:19     the next thing we're going to talk about

04:20     is the program called families in sync

04:22     and I'm really excited about that mrs.

04:24     inky Eric actually came up with anyone

04:26     where I end up with the name he went for

04:28     the name and it just made the most sense

04:30     yes and so families in sync is a mom and

04:35     dad and it's a whole family program you

04:37     know it's a little it's different from

04:39     our thrive program in that it's not

04:42     focusing so much on your marriage it's

04:44     focusing on your home and so the

04:49     families and think program is about it's

04:52     about the two-month program it's really

04:54     it's four weeks of intense intense

04:56     because right it four weeks of intense

05:02     discussions with us like one-on-one with

05:05     families examining what went wrong

05:08     exactly in your baseline and then making

05:10     a plan to fix things right giving people

05:13     the tools to make those things exactly

05:15     we're going to give you the same tools

05:16     that we work with every you know every

05:17     day and and we really wanted to be

05:20     extremely tangible things that you can

05:23     do right away and so so again it'll be

05:27     it'll be this is four weeks where we're

05:30     gonna work really intensively together

05:31     and then we're gonna give you a month to

05:33     work on on your own and then come back

05:35     and report and we're gonna have you know

05:37     we're going to talk about like oK we've

05:39     worked for four weeks really close

05:40     together like then now you've had a

05:42     month to sort of do it on your own what

05:44     things went well what things to do we

05:46     still need to work on and because we

05:48     really want to like help you guys have

05:51     peace in your lives there's there's some

05:53     so much struggle and there should not be

05:55     struggling your home and you know Eric

05:58     and I kind of have some unique unique

06:00     talents that we can lend to this you

06:02     know we have we know blended families we

06:04     understand special needs we understand

06:06     those things that are going on it we

06:07     have five children and we're a blended

06:10     family awesome yes and so we know what

06:13     it's like to be in the weeds and we know

06:17     what it's like to get out of it and to

06:18     really feel good about your family in

06:20     the way that the direction that you're

06:21     going in so um so again that one is well

06:25     as you know some comforts I seek so

06:27     Kellis put the the two links in the

06:29     the comments here unless I'm on our

06:31     webinar and so we're going to talk about

06:33     both of these both of these programs

06:35     really fold into the this webinar that

06:38     we're doing this week but there's going

06:40     to be people that are already part of

06:42     our other programs that are you don't

06:43     want to come to this webinar this week I

06:44     think so the webinar is called straight

06:46     talk on bad behavior and straight talk

06:51     on bad behavior is just what it sounds

06:54     like it is going to be an hour of Eric

06:57     and I like just talking about like why

07:00     your kids are misbehaving so come if

07:03     you're ready to hear it everybody has to

07:08     do it we can totally deal with it and

07:11     we're going to talk about some of our

07:12     own mess ups we're going to talk about

07:13     you know how we recovered things and

07:16     we're going to give you some tangible

07:18     some tangible things right away so if

07:21     you're interested we're gonna do two

07:23     live sessions this week and one will be

07:26     on Wednesday night at 5:00 p.m. Pacific

07:30     time and one will be on Saturday morning

07:32     at 10 a.m. Pacific time and so they'll

07:35     both be different you want I mean

07:37     they're they're the same topic but you

07:39     know that we different because they're

07:40     going to be live and what we'll be doing

07:44     is just going through we're going to be

07:46     taking questions it's going to be in the

07:48     zoom format it's not going to be here on

07:50     Facebook and the space for that is very

07:52     limited so you want to go to Melissa

07:54     Nelson comp or slash straight and you

07:57     want to sign up to date because it is

07:59     going to fill up fast very limited space

08:02     and so and then you're going to want to

08:03     be there on time

08:06     and if you know for some reason you

08:07     can't you signed up and you can't catch

08:09     the alive

08:11     you really should try to catch live just

08:13     because if you've got questions and you

08:15     really want to work through some of your

08:16     struggles then you know then there then

08:20     you know we'll be able to work through

08:22     them with you life but there will be

08:23     there will definitely be a replay and

08:25     but you have to sign up I will not be

08:28     sending the replay out for people that

08:29     don't sign out so you absolutely have it

08:31     anyhow to go through the confirmation

08:33     process because the the confirmation

08:36     process I've had some really like

08:38     frustrated messages from people I just

08:40     have to tell you it's not our fault

08:42     their world is changing and the world is

08:46     making it so that there's new laws that

08:50     are there going into effect in the next

08:51     month or so and so the companies aren't

08:54     really starting to like email marketing

08:57     companies are really starting to crack

08:58     down now we have to have double opt-in

09:01     on everything that means you sign up and

09:03     then you have to confirm your email and

09:05     you don't confirm your email then you

09:07     won't get the things from us and so we

09:10     really need people to just really trust

09:12     trying to train people you can be super

09:13     diligent about it because it's what it's

09:15     what's coming and it's coming because we

09:19     have had you know not strut strong

09:23     enough spam laws and now there's family

09:26     so they really want to make sure that

09:27     you really want that stuff in your inbox

09:29     so I'm Julie ass is a separate from

09:31     thinking feeling really our thinking

09:33     feeling willing members already have

09:35     access to the workbooks that are there

09:37     in the curriculum and more section of

09:40     thinking feeling willing those will be

09:42     work on your own if you and so that that

09:46     part is included in the program if you

09:48     want the one-on-one coaching with us for

09:50     the month than it is you know because

09:52     it's not a it's not a wallet essentials

09:55     product it's a Melissa Nelson home

09:57     product and so you will have to if you

10:00     want the one-on-one coaching then you

10:01     will definitely have to go through it

10:03     that way but you have access to all of

10:04     the materials and really inch really are

10:07     thinking feeling willing members should

10:09     not need families in sync or the rhythm

10:12     reboot because you have all of the tools

10:15     at your fingertips all of the tools are

10:17     within the program so if you work the

10:19     program you really wouldn't need these

10:20     these are really for families that

10:22     aren't working in the program that

10:24     aren't part of it so you know that

10:27     that's really what I have to say about

10:29     that I think that it's we have such a

10:31     great product and thinking feeling

10:32     willing and you work it it will work for

10:35     you but if you need that extra hump and

10:38     you need that one-on-one hand-holding

10:40     you are absolutely welcome to join one

10:42     of these programs but yes you will have

10:44     to pay for that separately because it is

10:46     if we're going to be working really

10:47     tight one-on-one together for a month

10:49     that it just is not included in the

10:52     program so

10:54     I think that's all with regards to the

10:56     announcements that we had realizing that

10:58     I wouldn't be able to manage the chat on

11:02     the YouTube unless I go over there

11:04     Oh are there I go check the questions to

11:07     see how we're gonna talk about menu

11:08     stacking yeah so I can go I should

11:10     probably go over MIT and I manage that I

11:12     just tuned in like to clone ourselves we

11:15     need Kelly to be right here every

11:16     morning so I'm here is what happening

11:19     I'm here but I'm over there okay he's

11:22     gonna step aside so menu sacking maybe

11:26     snacking is something that I started

11:28     doing Oh probably about two years ago so

11:32     what is menu sake menu stacking is this

11:35     ability to make your menu like really

11:39     work for you and they really you know I

11:42     want to say after my stroke before my

11:44     stroke I didn't mind being in the

11:45     kitchen after my stroke like seriously

11:47     the kitchen is just something that came

11:49     with my house really don't want to be

11:52     there but I am you know I love home

11:57     making in that respect and it's not that

12:00     I hate cooking it's just that like the

12:03     choleric and my head goes oh I have to

12:06     make more meals well really I just want

12:09     to play and especially since my stroke

12:12     and so I came up with some ways to make

12:15     it easier for me because it is my

12:17     kryptonite it's definitely my home and

12:20     do I have to pick again and and I know a

12:23     lot of you struggle with that so when I

12:24     came up with many stacking it was really

12:27     and truly I'm a lazy lady's face of me

12:31     like yeah I don't want to cook another

12:33     meal so menu stacking is this concept

12:37     where you start with a meal that then

12:40     takes you all week long and it can be a

12:44     couple of different basis and and I'm

12:47     going to say is no I don't have

12:49     vegetarian options that are in my menu

12:51     right away but I have to tell you if you

12:53     are I can't imagine that would be really

12:55     hard you would just you would change

12:56     which you're what you're cooking so for

12:59     instance our menu usually consists of on

13:03     Sunday or Monday I'll make a whole

13:05     chicken

13:06     and we have an instant pond I have to

13:08     tell you I'm waiting for the dating

13:10     people at Amazon to approve my affiliate

13:12     because I know I could sell something in

13:14     some pots for them I told my answer pot

13:16     all the time my children are sick of me

13:18     talking about the instant but Ellen are

13:20     you sick of me talking about the answer

13:21     pot just my kids Harry likes a handsome

13:27     pot if you're following Harry I need you

13:29     to use the Aries on Facebook you see

13:31     here he's been hit was on on what he's

13:34     doing his instant pot so we bought the

13:37     instant pot a couple of years ago and I

13:40     bought it when I was the reason why I

13:42     was sold on it was because at the time

13:44     we lived in a place that had a bigger

13:45     kitchen but I knew we were downsizing as

13:47     we were moving closer to the beach so I

13:49     needed something that replaced the rice

13:52     cooker and the crock pot and the so I

13:55     was on the lookout for something that

13:56     was going to replace a lot of those

13:58     things and the instant pot does that so

14:00     the instant pot is a rice cooker it is

14:04     you know it is a crock pot it is a

14:07     pressure cooker it you know you can make

14:10     soups and it's basically a pressure

14:12     cooker and then it's also as a hot plate

14:14     so you know I could see somebody that

14:18     lived in a camper like when I first

14:19     started started with the instant pot

14:20     there were people that that I followed

14:23     that were like they were on road

14:25     truckers it was a couple and so she was

14:27     she was doing all these videos in the

14:29     back camera on their truck and she had

14:31     this smaller she the six are the 6 quart

14:34     I had the 8 quart because children leave

14:37     home and they don't really leave they

14:39     just keep coming back and that's great I

14:41     love them but I'm constantly making a

14:43     lot of food and so I have the bigger one

14:45     and now they have a baby one that's like

14:46     a 4 quart which I need to acquire

14:48     because it would be perfect size for

14:50     rice but when I first acquired it it was

14:53     really because I wanted to be able to

14:55     get rid of all those other appliances I

14:57     really didn't want I didn't know what

14:59     size kitchen I was coming to and I

15:01     really wanted to change the footprint of

15:02     what we had you know storing and what we

15:05     were bringing with us so I bought it

15:06     with that intent in mind and oh man I

15:09     had no idea what I was walking into you

15:13     because it is I use it all the time like

15:14     almost every single day to the point

15:17     where I have

15:18     get insert because you know I'm

15:21     constantly cooking something in it so

15:24     again on Mondays like if you're gonna

15:26     stack your menu I just wanted to give

15:28     you a little instant pop background on

15:30     Mondays you're going to stack your menu

15:32     you want to come up with a meal that you

15:34     can utilize in different ways all week

15:36     long so the two that come to mind the

15:39     most for me are a pot roast and and a

15:42     whole chicken so you've got your whole

15:46     chicken one of the reasons why I love

15:48     the whole chicken is because we're going

15:50     to be you know making bone broth from it

15:53     so we do we we use that broth then all

15:56     week long so we start with a whole

15:58     chicken on Monday and on Monday we make

16:01     the whole chicken and usually I'll make

16:03     a you know a rice or pasta side dish or

16:05     vegetables or whatever it is and we are

16:08     gluten-free so I use a lot of Barilla

16:11     gluten-free pasta that's that's our

16:13     pasta means day and that's actually like

16:16     the best one that I've ever found so

16:17     it's a little bit more expensive

16:19     sometimes but really like to use that

16:22     one you know in but adding the

16:24     vegetables in and everything so we've

16:26     got this chicken and then our sides

16:28     that's Monday we buy a bigger chicken we

16:32     have like a subway the acorn instant pot

16:34     so I buy a bigger chicken and usually

16:38     the chicken I can find a good organic or

16:41     at least a hormone free chicken you know

16:44     for like less than twelve dollars twelve

16:47     thirteen dollars and so that's like

16:49     feeds us the whole week so I get the

16:51     chicken on Monday we cook it my name

16:53     Eric t-bones it on Monday and usually

16:57     there is way more than what we're going

16:59     to eat in that meal so he t-bones it and

17:02     then I take that carcass and it goes

17:03     back against a pot with about mmm four

17:07     to five cups of filtered water and some

17:10     seasonings and then it goes in the

17:12     instant pot I put it on about 180

17:15     minutes and I make bone broth and I put

17:17     a little apple cider vinegar in there

17:18     helps sort of leech more out of the

17:20     bones

17:21     and it goes and and it's making my bone

17:24     broth and so that bone broth then is

17:28     going to be used in another meal I'll

17:30     take the chicken you're going to eat it

17:32     on Monday night and there's going to be

17:34     leftovers from it there's generally

17:36     enough leftover because we buy the

17:37     bigger Birds it's generally enough

17:38     leftovers then to have tacos or fajitas

17:42     or some other chicken dish on another

17:46     night during the week so when I'm making

17:48     my menu I'm keeping this stacking idea

17:50     in mind I'm keeping in mind that we are

17:53     going to be using it the rest of the

17:55     week so again Monday we may have the

17:58     whole chicken and some pasta

17:59     Tuesday we might have fajitas from that

18:01     and and I just I really like la Frontera

18:07     as a brand la Frontera fajita mix

18:11     because they tend to be you know better

18:15     sourced and you can get them at the

18:18     national food store but if you have your

18:20     own way to make fajitas and great then

18:21     you do that and if you do please your SP

18:23     with me yes I cannot find one that I

18:26     really like so I will make that I will

18:28     take that chicken that's left over after

18:30     that meal

18:31     and if that if it's only enough for

18:33     fajitas I will actually put it in a

18:36     container with the mix and stick it back

18:39     in the fridge and it's got even more

18:40     time because once once meat is cooked it

18:43     doesn't marinate as well obviously

18:44     because it's already been cooked but if

18:46     you let it sit in there overnight it

18:47     does get a lot it you know it's sort of

18:49     soaks in so then we will we will you

18:54     know have that in there and Lennon asked

18:56     the question here she said I'd love to

18:57     hear from any of yours that are doing

18:59     vegetarians the one thing that came to

19:01     mind linen for me was if you had a

19:05     vessel in stock and you were making

19:06     beans maybe and then having that stretch

19:08     all week long or because we do a lot of

19:11     vegetarian things with our instant pot I

19:13     just was really thinking about how we do

19:16     because we do a lot of paleo stuff too

19:18     as far as like meats and that's really

19:21     what got me going on it was how we were

19:23     going to be able to bring enough protein

19:24     to to our family in that way so I would

19:28     love to hear if you send me some of your

19:31     favorite menu

19:32     ideas that you are already working on I

19:35     will help you stack them because I think

19:37     the stacking is so so so helpful

19:40     so again chicken on monday tuesday may

19:44     we're having fajitas or some other

19:45     something else that we're doing with

19:47     that chicken it's usually fajitas is

19:48     easy and fast and then on Wednesday I'm

19:53     either making tomato soup from the the

19:57     chicken stock or a chicken noodle soup

20:00     or I might make some black beans and use

20:03     that soup base so I'm using that again

20:06     on a third night if I'm making tomato

20:09     soup or chicken noodle soup I generally

20:11     make enough so that then we can eat it

20:14     for at least one more dinner and

20:16     generally one more or lunch so by Friday

20:19     that chicken that we started with on

20:21     Monday

20:21     has fed us almost every day that week

20:24     and and we we didn't even when you know

20:28     when we had Harry here and he was eating

20:30     a whole lot more it was we just bought

20:33     bigger birds you can also do it with I

20:36     was thinking about this the other day

20:38     you could do it with some bone-in beef

20:42     if that you then use and I was thinking

20:46     about it with a like a pot roast you

20:49     could use it as a pot roast and then you

20:51     could take the leftover pot roast and

20:53     shred it and do shredded beef the other

20:56     things that we've done in our instant

20:58     pot and this isn't stacking so much as

21:00     it is just cooking big that lasts all

21:03     week long especially if you're in the

21:04     mode of like figuring out how you can do

21:06     lunches for the whole week I love to

21:09     make barbecue chicken in a pot so for

21:12     that I don't use the whole chicken I

21:14     just used thighs and you can usually

21:16     find organic thighs at Costco for about

21:19     $24 for the package of three there's

21:23     like three in that package right URI and

21:25     and and I for this I usually use about I

21:28     usually use at least two of those

21:29     packages for this but you could use all

21:32     three if you've got a bigger family and

21:34     you want it to make it go longer so I

21:36     will cook them in the inset pot with

21:39     some really good barbecue sauce that's

21:41     not no corn syrup you know gluten free

21:44     barbecue sauce and

21:46     or make your own you know cook them and

21:48     you just want to make sure that there's

21:49     at least one cup of liquid so that your

21:53     ass and hot doesn't blow up it needs to

21:55     have enough liquid in it to create this

21:57     to you so you know I'll make that on on

22:02     one day and it will usually last us the

22:04     whole week so

22:05     but we've eaten that on several

22:06     different things I have kids that eat

22:08     that on rice we've eaten that with wrote

22:11     the Hawaiian King rolls are like really

22:14     the best but they're not gluten free so

22:16     while the gentlemen in our house can

22:18     enjoy those these days sorry and I can't

22:20     so you know finding some good

22:22     gluten-free breads or some other ways to

22:24     enjoy those those things system is

22:27     really like the topic of what we're

22:29     doing a lot of now that we're doing more

22:31     gluten free stuff so um and how many

22:34     questions I know we have a lot of

22:35     viewers does anybody want to share with

22:37     their favorite meal stacking us if

22:39     you're already stacking your menus like

22:42     this already or questions about meal

22:45     stacking I'm happy I'm all yours and

22:48     happy to help you troubleshoot some

22:50     things I have to say that we have you

22:53     know we sort of perfected this over the

22:55     last at least the last year year two and

22:58     and it really really reduces my time in

23:01     the kitchen it reduces my mail making

23:03     time not just because the instant pot is

23:05     an amazing piece of equipment but just

23:08     because we do the stacking piece the

23:10     stacking piece that generally tends to

23:12     really pull us out of the kitchen and

23:14     and we can make things like like when we

23:17     make fajitas we can make that last a lot

23:19     longer like definitely it's usually a

23:21     meal and then a lunch especially if I

23:24     turn around and I make rice and the

23:26     instant pot and I make some Spanish rice

23:27     then that can go with it as well and so

23:30     it makes it stretch a lot farther and I

23:33     because I'm just all about about not

23:35     wanting to be in the kitchen right now

23:37     yeah I saw this um I saw this this towel

23:41     at the there's a little shot down here

23:43     that some that is I like a little

23:47     touristy shop everything like my kitchen

23:50     is just a room that came with my house

23:51     and that's kind of how I feel

23:54     yeah anyways Angie says I follow paleo

23:58     as well great video

23:59     I just think thank you I I think that in

24:01     any way that we can especially because

24:04     paleo ends up being so like meat

24:06     intensive and and it can get to be

24:10     overwhelming for you know you as far as

24:13     like making it coming up with meals and

24:15     then it for your budget

24:16     it can be overwhelming to source good

24:19     meats that and poultry that is not you

24:24     know that that's not GMO that's not full

24:27     of full of stuff that we don't want it's

24:29     hard and so I really looked for ways to

24:32     make it like go farther Brianna says

24:35     Lennon we often do giant pot of chicken

24:38     and do chickpea euros ooh that sounds

24:40     good then the next day do hummus that

24:43     it's right up my alley I live on us or

24:46     pasta con CeCe with chickpeas another

24:51     week I'm gonna go back another week

24:56     another week we'll use a different bean

24:59     kidney beans to do chili I think see

25:02     that that's that's a great way that's a

25:04     great way to to do stocking for

25:07     vegetarians that I didn't even think

25:09     about chili cuz we would make that too

25:11     and that that would be that's a great

25:14     let's see Nadia says is stacking still

25:17     doable without the instant pot it is I

25:19     just think you have to work farther or

25:21     work a little bit harder and the instant

25:24     pot isn't available where you live dang

25:25     it I'm sorry but I totally would buy Oh

25:29     anything where I think this is amazing

25:32     machine so yes it would be definitely

25:36     doable the way you would do it you would

25:38     have to use a crock pot or a slow cooker

25:39     and and and you know even though you

25:41     don't have an instant pot if you had

25:43     Nadia I don't know if you have access to

25:45     any kind of electric electric I my brain

25:51     just holy Oh pressure cooker that's the

25:54     word I was looking for any kind of

25:56     electric pressure cooker I think would

25:57     do but no I think that you could

26:01     definitely do the same things with say a

26:04     crock pot it would just take longer so

26:06     you would want to start it

26:07     you you would want to get up Monday

26:09     morning with dinner in mind obviously so

26:12     if you're going to do a whole chicken in

26:13     the crock-pot you would want to start at

26:15     Monday morning and then you would still

26:17     have the benefit of you know having it

26:20     ready for Monday evening and then you

26:23     know breaking down a carcass and then

26:24     you would want to in order to make bone

26:26     broth from that it takes longer in the

26:28     crock-pot so you would want to leave it

26:29     in a crock-pot you know until the next

26:31     day

26:32     I've done that before I did that before

26:34     we have the asset pot with with regards

26:36     like making bone broth so you know

26:38     definitely you would want to work on it

26:41     from it's just gonna take a little bit

26:43     longer

26:43     but you know it's definitely doable menu

26:45     stacking I think is just this idea of

26:47     really working at what we can do to

26:51     lengthen those meals and lengthen those

26:54     you know the the pieces that we have

26:57     like all of those working parts and and

27:00     working on a menu can be super

27:01     overwhelming and it's something that I

27:04     you know I talk about on a regular basis

27:06     as far as like it needs to be part of

27:07     your rhythm and especially if your

27:10     rhythm is a mess go back and look at

27:12     your menu because not having a menu in

27:13     place unless you're planning on eating

27:15     out every night even if you are so they

27:18     plan it and so like really having that

27:20     menu piece in place is super helpful so

27:24     when you are when you're coming up with

27:27     trying to get your rhythm sorted and in

27:31     a good place

27:32     I always tell families you need to have

27:33     two to three weeks of menus done like

27:36     done written and in the can so it's easy

27:39     for you to pull and then you have to be

27:41     ahead of the shopping for that so if you

27:44     have those menus already done you can

27:46     pull it and you can you know get the

27:48     shopping done and you got it and then

27:50     you don't have to worry about what

27:51     you're making for dinner you don't have

27:53     to worry about what people are eating

27:54     for lunch because you've got it all

27:55     planned out already so menu settings

27:58     totally helps with the lunch situation

28:00     too because you always you're always

28:01     sort of ahead a little bit because you

28:03     have some food from the night before and

28:05     yes you might be using it this night but

28:07     you can portion out what you need

28:09     usually when we do it with a like a big

28:11     chicken it feeds us for two or three

28:15     meals after the initial meal if you can

28:18     get a big enough bird and like I said

28:20     that's one of the

28:21     reasons why I like the eight core we fit

28:22     a whole thing turkey I guess but that

28:25     Christmas like Christmas or Thanksgiving

28:27     we could we put a whole tree it's like

28:29     somebody gave us this whole turkey and I

28:31     was like what in the heck I'd never

28:33     curtain never cooked a turkey at 45

28:35     years old never cooked turkey before

28:36     because somebody always picked it for me

28:38     and I thought how in the heck am i

28:40     kicking this thing and we had to cut off

28:42     one of the breasts because it was a

28:44     really big turkey but we cut off one of

28:46     the breasts and I threw that in the

28:48     freezer and then we cooked the rest of

28:49     the turkey I mean was a big bird in the

28:51     pot and it was perfect it was absolutely

28:55     perfect so that what it it it gave us

28:57     the same menu sake only we had bird for

29:00     a long time along like a week or more

29:04     there was a lot of turkey you can do the

29:07     same thing you make turkey broth you can

29:09     you know make turkey soup then from that

29:12     utilize the turkey breasts for lunch

29:14     meat you can do all of those all the

29:16     same things and it just goes farther so

29:19     really mini a second is just this idea

29:20     of really looking to make your menu go

29:23     farther and it helps you out so much in

29:25     the kitchen especially if you've got

29:27     allergies especially you you know are

29:30     looking at a special diet like paleo or

29:32     anything like that so you want to really

29:34     really plan it out and have it together

29:37     Angie says we do a lot of boiled eggs

29:39     fruits and vegetables for lunch

29:40     yep I think that's it's great and easy

29:43     and fast and it's super helpful let's

29:46     see and you can serve it with rice too

29:48     for heart your appetites yes rice can go

29:50     a long way and I have to tell you the

29:52     thing about rice in the instant pot is

29:53     it's done in like four minutes I mean it

29:55     you have that it has to come to pressure

29:56     but it still it's done in like four

29:59     minutes and so I love the answer pop for

30:02     that so I really liked once a little

30:04     four quart one because then I can just

30:06     have one for that Briana says my husband

30:09     hates the idea of boring repeated menus

30:12     I'm reinstituting them and I have

30:14     assured him he'll more says if dinner is

30:18     faster that's really good that's good

30:24     Breanna it is it dinner as faster yes I

30:28     think that's great and I think you don't

30:31     like why don't we menus check I don't

30:32     ever think about it being boring because

30:34     one make one

30:35     I think sorry it's so laughing why don't

30:37     we I will make chicken noodle soup or

30:39     chicken and rice soup or you know you

30:43     know the next week I will make tomato

30:44     soup and tomato soup is like goes so far

30:48     and we make tomato and rice one link and

30:50     I'll make tomato pasta one week I'll you

30:53     know I make a German noodle but I can't

30:55     make right now because I think an issue

30:57     but we make tomato soup it's been sold

31:00     on a regular basis to see what else does

31:03     she say

31:03     I'm tests as two to three weeks so do

31:07     you prep for that say uh sometimes I'm

31:11     basing my meat purchases off of sales my

31:13     mind can barely wrap around a week at a

31:15     time we sort of do stacking currently -

31:18     I didn't realize that wasn't that's what

31:22     I was doing

31:22     yes that's not great when you find ou


31:24     that you're doing something you didn't

31:25     realize so yes two to three weeks

31:28     especially if your rhythm is in the

31:30     toilet you want to have to - through

31:32     sand the way I recommend you do that is

31:33     you take I would I would do twelve and

31:36     make a list of twelve Brunel's twelve

31:38     dinners that are really easy for you to

31:41     do that your family likes and then go

31:44     through those twelve dinners and what

31:45     can you stack what can you stack you

31:47     know I mean for us it would be like

31:48     chicken fajitas you know pot roast one

31:52     thing we were like is ribs and that's

31:54     not stackable but you know I would go

31:56     through and make twelve a list of twelve

31:58     to fifteen meals that you all like and

32:01     and then I would do five to ten lunches

32:04     and like five breakfasts that's your

32:06     base just make your lists and then pull

32:10     two to three weeks of menus and I have

32:12     to keep them together that really if you

32:14     have the same menu it have like two to

32:16     three weeks of menus and you can rotate

32:17     it then it's not going to get boring and

32:20     you can change it up a little bit I used

32:21     to have like we used to have a soup

32:23     night and like an ethnic thing like like

32:25     Mexican or Italian and I was hanging so

32:28     it's kind of weird because I make

32:30     Italian out all the time so we kind of

32:32     walked away from that when we started to

32:33     meal stacking more just because it was

32:35     easier to do it this way but yes as far

32:38     as like having the prep I would have the

32:41     prep a week in advance so when you're in

32:44     you're watching those sales and it

32:45     really doesn't take a lot you know you

32:47     would

32:48     at least your meat prep you would have

32:50     extra in the freezer if you want to get

32:52     your vegetables fresh that week

32:54     definitely you know then you want to

32:56     stop by the store and grab those or you

32:59     know make a list for dad to grab on this

33:00     way home from work or whatever I think

33:02     it that part should be fresh obviously

33:04     it doesn't keep us long but if you can

33:07     stay ahead of the meat than that you

33:08     know that really helps and it definitely

33:10     it's just about if you could get one

33:13     week ahead then you can stay one week

33:14     ahead and so you know setting aside a

33:17     little extra budget so that you can get

33:19     one week ahead I think it's golden for

33:21     you go ahead yes here the Prairie

33:25     pioneer school houses the name it says

33:27     I'm in the meal planning part of the

33:29     planning for peace Journal and I feel

33:31     your pain Breanna no for Anna that's

33:36     really funny I just think it's hilarious

33:39     because I think that meal planning it

33:41     takes so much so usually what happens

33:44     here

33:44     it was just like evening rhythm what

33:46     happens here is what I miss will cook

33:49     and then we'll eat and then the other

33:51     one of us like will head head kids to

33:56     bed like shortly after when when mom's

33:58     tell me that their kids need a snack

34:00     before dinner I'm before bed I'm like

34:02     what the heck time are y'all waiting yes

34:04     we eat between 5:00 and 6:00 usually

34:06     they're in bed like we're heading to bed

34:09     at 7:00 like there's no time for a snack

34:11     in there it's just not if you are eating

34:16     it for and you weren't going to bed till

34:18     8:00 then I could see but you know

34:19     really working having that bed time

34:21     stacked early and this is like so Sam's

34:24     about to be 12 he's also getting ready

34:26     for rent at that time because he felt

34:28     that he really likes it been married and

34:30     so where our whole house is shut down by

34:34     eight like Tibet and usually to sleep by

34:38     that I mean there are definitely

34:40     exceptions but but generally yeah so

34:43     there's what we're eating and then you

34:46     know I'm pushing them to bed and we're

34:47     working on that and I'm reading to them

34:49     and Eric is then cleaning out the

34:51     kitchen so that when we're both done

34:52     with those chores off duty and we're

34:55     done for the night so yeah definitely

34:57     think about that if that's not what's

34:59     working for you

35:01     Becca says I stack my menus a bit

35:04     differently we use a lot of meat because

35:06     my husband is a caveman in a Polish

35:09     shirt he craves meat one chicken

35:12     wouldn't be enough for more than one

35:14     meal plus lunches can s get comments

35:17     today I'm just trying to get to this see

35:19     more plus lunch is the next day I ain't

35:28     wonder how big your chicken is Ranna

35:30     are not random and I get I would get

35:33     bigger ticket and bigger answer pot I

35:35     plan menus a month in advance according

35:38     to the season good you should usually do

35:41     that too then I repeat I see so many for

35:43     three months in a row each then each

35:46     meal is only eaten a few times a quarter

35:48     and we don't get bored that's a great

35:49     idea sometimes we go longer than three

35:51     months if we've had a crazy change in

35:54     seasons like we did this year when

35:56     winter was just dragging on and on

35:58     that's that's a great that's a great tip

35:59     I really like seasonal menus too we tend

36:02     to do a lot based on the farmers market

36:04     and I California we get things before

36:06     everybody else we've got strawberries

36:08     here right great then the last probably

36:10     the last month we've had strawberries

36:12     like strawberries and Brussels sprouts

36:16     the last few weeks and so I'm loving it

36:18     when I can get things really fresh

36:21     Jennifer says Tess you could have a week

36:26     plan each type of meat you typically get

36:29     that's a good idea that's a really good

36:30     idea you know so that you if you see

36:32     that pot roast are on sale you have a

36:34     week's plan with that you're stacking

36:36     with just the pot roast or a week's plan

36:38     that you're stacking with the whole

36:39     chickens

36:39     I tend to I was thinking about at Costco

36:44     and the chicken thing I was buying no

36:46     chickens at Costco and I think that's an

36:48     Okie thing to do like the whole organic

36:50     ones I'm finding that often Ralphs which

36:53     is a Kroger brand so Ralph's Fred Meijer

36:56     Smith's I think there's other Kroger

36:58     brands but they tend to be cheaper on a

37:01     whole chicken basis and you get a bigger

37:03     whole chicken sometimes than you do at

37:05     Costco I need to do earlier bedtimes yes

37:11     ma'am you do debris

37:14     anna says um yes yes yes she's thanking

37:19     Becca this is Brian okay I'm so glad so

37:22     anybody else have any extra anything

37:24     else they want to share I think it's a

37:26     really good topic and I mean I really

37:29     think we could do a workshop on just

37:32     menus but you know I have to tell you

37:34     that is really what helps the rhythm

37:37     when you know what you're eating it

37:39     takes so much of a load off for

37:43     breakfast for lunch for dinner and then

37:46     if you know what snacks you're having

37:48     and it's next don't have to be like it's

37:50     next here I'm like get yourself a dang

37:53     Apple yeah it doesn't have to be this

37:55     this big deal we just really have to

37:58     think about it and and you know then

38:02     there's the next level the next level of

38:04     course would be an incredibly conscious

38:05     menu of you're taking it from and most

38:08     of us are pretty conscious but you're

38:09     taking it from here's the menu idea to

38:12     then making sure that it it fits all of

38:14     your your desires with regards to health

38:17     and nutrition and and so that that

38:20     really is is it it's just the next step

38:23     and and so making it like really fit for

38:25     your family Julie says I've had success

38:28     with stacking as long as they plan out

38:30     hitting the grocery store twice a week

38:32     so the veggies make it to the end of the

38:34     plan for a short like I attend to

38:36     because our farmers market is on

38:38     Wednesdays I tend to like plan the menu

38:41     out and and save the things that I know

38:44     I'm going to need those fresh veggies

38:46     for at the end of the week and that's

38:49     super helpful here Jennifer says I chop

38:52     my veggies so you guys have create all

38:53     these comments this morning I chopped my

38:55     veggies for the week the ones that I

38:57     will keep in advance and it saves a lot

38:59     of time for cookie it does excuse me the

39:03     pre-prep really helps a lot Eric likes

39:06     to make homemade pizza and we do a lot

39:08     of pre prep when it comes to that

39:09     because otherwise he'd be in the kitchen

39:10     for three hours and Becca says yes a

39:14     workshop on menus would be awesome I

39:16     hate meal planning and grocery shopping

39:18     and need fresh motivation I don't keep

39:20     that in mind I hadn't thought about that

39:22     until this morning I just I think that

39:24     then meals and menus

39:27     it's something that you go you know like

39:30     I have to do this is something you have

39:32     to do yes you might as well enjoy it all

39:35     right

39:35     I still enjoy a little bit Angie says so

39:38     with the bone broth I freeze an ice cube

39:40     trays that's a great idea

39:42     then often for lunch or breakfast I cut

39:45     in

39:46     or zuto fresh vegetables and kind of

39:50     make instant ramen that's a great idea I

39:52     use a bone broth a lot a lot we use it

39:55     for just about everything if I'm going

39:57     to make any kind of ramen dish dish

40:01     even if I'm gonna use the ramen noodles

40:03     I'm gonna use my own bone broth I don't

40:06     use I don't use the stuff that's in the

40:07     packet I mean it's nasty for one but

40:09     even if you have a good one

40:10     it's still better to cook in in the bone

40:13     broth so I use the bone broth for rice

40:15     and they use the bone broth for you know

40:17     all kinds of bases for for other foods

40:20     as well so it goes a long way but my

40:23     favorite is I make a homemade tomato

40:25     soup with the bone broth from the week

40:27     from that week and I use about four cans

40:31     four to six cans of organic tomato sauce

40:34     and and in just make it all from scratch

40:38     and it is an amazing soup some butter a

40:41     little bit of spicy

40:45     Nina says I like to use frozen

40:48     vegetables yes you know that's another

40:50     great way when you when you need to for

40:52     sure that I am cooking and buy lots of

40:55     fresh greens however I plan on growing

41:01     my baby greens because I don't like them

41:03     going going to the story there yep good

41:06     point yeah there's another one grocery

41:08     shopping is a big deal for us once a

41:10     week the kids and I go altogether and

41:12     have lots of fun but I end up buying so

41:15     many snack foods I don't shop with my

41:16     kids I just she said she ends up buying

41:22     a lot of snack foods and I'm starting to

41:24     suspect my son has a gluten allergy and

41:26     I have to tell you the reason like we've

41:28     always been low gluten but the reason

41:31     why we're doing the sir I and I are

41:33     doing the gluten-free thing right now is

41:35     because she's got this lovely rash right

41:37     I think that's where came from we we go

41:40     to Disneyland a lot and so we end up

41:42     taking sandwiches that we can eat in

41:44     line or there and I generally don't

41:47     because we've been doing sourdough for

41:49     years

41:49     sourdough doesn't seem to bother her or

41:52     me or myself and we were already gluten

41:54     free on the pasta and but you know like

41:57     for Disneyland I'm like well candy bread

41:59     which is really you know not horrible

42:02     bread it tend to still buy better candy

42:04     bread but it was full wheat it was not

42:06     sourdough broken-down and after two

42:09     times of going and having extra candy

42:11     bread laying around that then everybody

42:13     wants to eat yeah now she's got this

42:15     rash so no gluten for her or me for a

42:18     while

42:19     let's see okay

42:22     good morning Erica breakfast drama ooh

42:24     What's in breakfast Roman sound like

42:26     something that sounds like something

42:27     Airy would make Harry we have a Sarai's

42:30     worth day party yesterday

42:31     she turns having yesterday which is

42:33     crazy for those of you who have known us

42:35     since she was born

42:36     holy cow can't believe she turn seven

42:38     yesterday he comes and I have made this

42:41     cake and having cake and ice cream we

42:43     have some friends here he disappears I'm

42:46     like we're eating here you go he had

42:48     come in a house as we were outside and

42:50     made himself a frozen we had these

42:52     frozen organic burritos that we buy at

42:54     Costco frozen burrito with two eggs on

42:56     it you know what it's a eggs on

42:57     everything it's really funny that's his

43:00     menu stacking it has got eggs so let's

43:03     see America says she's glad she actually

43:06     caught the video good morning good

43:08     morning don't have a baby today eric is

43:11     about to pop in a day ladies everybody

43:13     sits and prayers for her Gaia says using

43:16     an app Romania's that also make shopping

43:21     list that's a great idea

43:22     but do you can you share the name of the

43:25     app that you use because I think that's

43:28     a great idea then I can send my list

43:30     directly to the grocery store for them

43:31     to put it together that's a great idea

43:33     it's a great idea thanks for that tip I

43:36     am I would love to know what app you're

43:38     using for sure we Chen tend to use

43:40     Google Pete just to make the grocery

43:42     list as an it can go between air connect

43:45     or Evernote we use Evernote to we

43:47     haven't used that for grocery lists in a

43:49     while Brandon says I'm going to put some

43:51     photo

43:51     of materials I've made to help with

43:54     meals sure we'd love to see that I don't

43:57     use it all still but need to reinstitute

44:00     it I made a list of everything I buy at

44:04     the store in order that I encountered

44:08     them in the search that's a great idea

44:09     you know because every store a little

44:11     bit different I go to some grocery

44:13     stores I go what the heck how is this

44:15     laid out this way because it's totally

44:16     not totally not the way we like things

44:19     out at the other stores and so I think

44:21     that's a great idea if you're if your

44:22     list isn't in the order that you're

44:25     you're doing Rianna says I know y'all

44:30     make a lot what flour do you use when I

44:32     am baking with wheats high-acid than my

44:34     hi ladies I'm baking with wheat I use

44:37     organic weight flour for breads you

44:43     either organic or the King Arthur Flour

44:47     one of the two and now they think they

44:49     have an organic went to so it's just

44:51     depends on which one I get a store when

44:52     I am using when I'm doing gluten-free

44:54     then I tend to use the Bob's Red Mill

44:57     one to one which is good it's just

45:00     pricey but it's that's good that's what

45:01     we use that's what I use for this cake I

45:03     made yesterday I mean I think gluten

45:04     free cake for his birthday and I wasn't

45:07     convinced to the recipe and this is like

45:08     me being a recipe snob Eric was agreeing

45:11     with me cuz dress snob this is why

45:14     because I like look at this recipe on

45:16     Pinterest and the whole this woman has

45:20     this whole beautiful cake and then she

45:21     iced it was something for my tub she

45:24     didn't make a rub breasting I was like I

45:25     don't know well suspect in this cake but

45:27     it actually turned out good and I'll

45:30     post them I'll post the because it was

45:32     it was actually pretty good the kids

45:33     were like this tastes like brownie it

45:34     was really good guy says it's called

45:38     email is the app it wasn't free but it

45:41     is a lifesaver

45:41     you know sometimes spending a couple of

45:43     bucks on an app I have several apps like

45:45     that that that I I love because you know

45:49     even then you have to spend money on

45:51     them that they're lifesavers so

45:58     Becca wants to know Breana shops at all

46:00     these what's really funny his Eric

46:02     remembers all these when he was on his

46:04     mission in Ohio they had all these there

46:06     did you see their own all these here

46:08     Lisa yeah there are some here huh like

46:12     there's one in the National City there's

46:15     a few I've been that I took the kid

46:17     that's how I find a little nostalgia

46:21     she says Becca joy says she does the

46:24     same kind of grocery list and she

46:25     laminates it and then use the dry erase

46:27     marker that's a great idea too

46:28     Oh grand ideas ladies let's see Rachel

46:33     wants does anyone know of an app that

46:35     helps with gluten free soy free nut

46:37     house Oh dairy free that's not that's

46:39     hard one that's a really hard one I hate

46:44     shopping and trying to meal plan with

46:46     food allergies you know we were

46:48     dairy-free and gluten-free when Harry

46:50     was little it was definitely harder

46:53     those were they like in the stone Age's

46:54     when there was not a whole lot that was

46:56     around I made a ton of stuff from

46:58     scratch hi kids my big kids they're sort

47:01     of what to think that they didn't

47:03     actually eat like this but they ate I

47:04     did mung bean sprout add patties like

47:07     Lisa I would make think money mung beans

47:09     and sprout them and then I put that

47:13     would put them in the Bosch goes before

47:19     I had a Vitamix put him in the Bosch and

47:21     make like a paste and then I would add I

47:24     used we were able to use spelt flour so

47:26     we used some spelt flour and then I

47:28     fried them up and they actually they

47:30     like to pretend that they didn't eat

47:31     those because I can't believe you ate

47:33     made us eat that but they ate them and

47:35     they left them there create little

47:36     patties so I tried to do things like

47:38     that that could that they were quick and

47:41     easy and if you can find a good base

47:44     honey of quick and easy like things that

47:47     you guys like it'll make it a lot easier

47:49     but when you're when you're trying to go

47:51     through it the first view the first

47:52     little time what's hard like soup or

47:55     Soraya like she's like this is heavily -

47:57     this is heavily this is how sorry for it

48:01     but to know Harry's like I feel your

48:04     pain he remembers going through it

48:06     Lennon says I'm a huge iron corn fan you

48:09     know what I forgot about them they are

48:10     good too

48:12     they're not gluten-free but they I don't

48:13     have a problem with them I haven't tried

48:15     them since we've been doing the

48:17     gluten-free thing but they I really like

48:20     them I like their they have a wide egg

48:24     noodle that we've used I really like

48:28     that I've used that my chicken noodle

48:29     soups and you know of course when you

48:31     make an chicken noodle so if you have to

48:32     add the noodles at the end but

48:34     definitely really like like the ioan

48:36     corn stuff because I feel like I really

48:40     feel like there's not a reason and and I

48:42     know people are gonna argue with me but

48:44     our bodies are made to eat gluten

48:47     they're just not made to eat it in the

48:50     quantities that our culture like likes

48:53     to eat it and so I really struggle with

48:56     this idea that we have to be gluten free

48:58     forever although some people for sure

48:59     have to be gluten free forever but I do

49:02     think that there is this way that we can

49:04     do it in a better way and and so when I

49:07     I know that our situation was like the

49:09     tipping point was the candy bread we

49:12     were keeping it all under wraps I had to

49:13     taste something else

49:14     I had no joint pain since then since I

49:18     got rid of gluten about two weeks ago

49:20     yeah anyways going through here Moran

49:26     and says I grew up vegan and my dad

49:28     would send us to school with us alpha

49:30     sprout and tofu sandwiches it's like

49:32     that's like the old school way a while

49:35     back I was bragging to my friend how we

49:38     she grew up like me and would never

49:40     trade our food with other people she

49:42     said yeah

49:43     because no one would trade with us

49:46     that's great conversation you guys it's

49:52     anybody else have any other thoughts you

49:53     have any other comments over here all

49:56     right I think we're gonna wrap it up

49:57     please make sure that you sign up for

50:00     straight talk about bad behavior on on a

50:05     Wednesday or Saturday then let's see

50:11     Brianna says I thought I'd post to all

50:14     of essentials but oh because it's a file

50:16     you should post it there you could post

50:18     it in thinking feeling willing or an ask

50:20     Melissa asked unless that has people

50:22     that are not thinking feeling willing so

50:38     reboot and I'm going to ask that you

50:41     know the best the best best way that we

50:45     can share our work with other people is

50:46     when you talk about it so I would love

50:49     it if if we have worked with programs

50:51     with us that that you have loved you

50:54     know whether it be our thinking feeling

50:55     willing program or so my brother

50:56     programs please share that is the best

50:59     when you can share word of mouth and

51:00     these two new programs I really and

51:03     truly believe are huge

51:05     helps for families that maybe aren't

51:07     homeschooling or maybe they are and

51:09     there's trying to get busy and they're

51:11     really really struggling with these

51:13     concepts that I cover in thinking

51:15     feeling willing but maybe they're not

51:17     ready to take that leap yet so if you

51:19     would share I would love it it would be

51:21     so awesome and such warming up my heart

51:23     if you would just share some of the

51:25     links that Kelly shared in the beginning

51:27     of the chat with with your friends with

51:31     friends that you know need it you know

51:33     with friends that might be struggling

51:34     with discipline in their homes or with

51:36     getting the rhythm together that's

51:38     really what this is about it's like

51:39     sharing then we're working together and
