Thinking about purchasing the PCOS Seasonal Meal Plans, but have some questions?
Question: “How many servings are your recipes?”
The PCOS Diva Summer Meal Plan is perfect for 2 adults. The dinner recipes are 4 servings each, so that you have a nice dinner and plenty for lunch the next day. Many of the breakfast recipes are individual servings. If you are a larger family, you’ll just want to adjust the recipes. These meals are exactly what I feed my family of 5 (husband and 3 kids ages 14, 10 and 5)
Question: “What types of food will I be eating or not eating?
All of the 6-week Meal Plan Recipes are seasonally influenced and based on a balanced combination of whole gluten-free grains, lots of vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats. This is a plant based program, meaning you will be eating lots of nutrient rich plant based food in a delicious way. I take out all of the food that aggravates PCOS symptoms . There are plenty of vegetarian recipes, but you will also find dinners using various, fish, shellfish, poultry, lean pork and beef. In the plan, you will also find healthy fats like coconut, avocado, olives, nuts and seeds.
Question: “Will my meal plan cover the entire week?”
The meal plan covers 5 days a week. Inevitably, you will eat a meal or two out. You’ll probably want to include some of your old favorite recipes as well.
Question: “How will the meal plans be delivered?”
You will receive the Getting Started guide, and the first week’s meal plan as soon as you order. Afterward, you will receive another full meal plan each week for 5 more weeks. The plans are sent as PDF documents which you can keep and print, however, you may not distribute.
Question: “How much preparation time will the meals take?”
If you spend some time early in the week prepping dishes ahead of time like chopping veggies and marinating meats (like I do on Sundays), dinners during the week can come together in as little as 15 minutes. If you prep from scratch each night, plan on 30 to 45 minutes. The recipes make 4 adult servings, so you’ll get 2 meals out of 1.
Question: “Will I like the food?”
You will LOVE the food. I’ve taught hundreds of women how to cook foods that not only taste good but also energize and heal. As always, if you aren’t completely satisfied just send me an email at [email protected] explaining why you didn’t like the Meal Plan, and I will refund your money.
Question: I have food sensitivities. Will these recipes work for me?
My Meal Plan omits gluten, most dairy, and soy which are all common allergens. In fact, if you’re newly diagnosed as gluten- and/or dairy-free, these meal plans would be a great starting point for you. I’ve worked for years to develop recipes that are good for the body and are delicious. I guarantee that you won’t know you’re missing a thing.
Question: How is this program different than the other meal planning services out there?
There are a lot of meal planning services out there, but most of them include processed foods and are not designed with the unique needs of women like me and you who have PCOS.
Question: Will I have to buy expensive or exotic ingredients?
I provide a Pantry Essentials List in the Meal Plan Package. It lists everything you need to stock your kitchen for the weeks ahead. You may already have many of the list items already in your kitchen. Once you have stocked your pantry, your weekly grocery shopping bill will be much lower because you will have most of what you need to prepare meals, besides fresh produce and protein.
Question: I participated in your Jumpstart Program where I learned a lot about what to eat and received your 7-day Menu Plan. Will this still help me?
The PCOS Diva Meal Plans are totally separate from the Jumpstart Program, though the 7-day Menu plan is always a great resource. The Jumpstart Program is structured to help you have a week focused on learning how to live a lifestyle that allows you to thrive with PCOS. Jumpstart week is also about clearing out your body, releasing toxins, and learning new habits. The Meal Plans, on the other hand, are more focused on healthy meals for every day – recipes that you, your family, and your friends will love.
