You have goals. You have plans. But you have trouble sticking to them. Learn the tricks to get a lot out of a small time investment. Plan ahead so YOU control your meals instead of them controlling YOU.

  • You want to get the kids involved but you're not sure how.
  • You want to stop throwing away food that was left too long in the fridge.
  • You want to sit down to family meals feeling relaxed and peaceful instead of tense and upset.
  • You want to feed your family healthy food without spending HOURS in the kitchen and overspending on your food budget.

I can show you how a little bit of planning goes a LONG way to achieving your goals. And, when you achieve your goals, you're taking steps to reduce food waste, which, you know, helps the planet, helps the community and helps your budget.

This simple course gives you all the steps you need. Be ready to print the materials, bring a pencil, and get your meal schedule sharpened!

Parenting and Food Systems

The mission of Nourishing Liberty is to inspire and empower families and communities to nurture each other and the earth through our food choices and interactions.

Food is a huge part of our lives. Our choices matter.

I strive to live my principles in my role as a mother to 5 loving, wonderful, and healthy humans. I want to share what I've learned about feeding a family healthy food on a budget so other families can have the same success.

As a small business owner in the food industry, and as a woman in permaculture, I offer my overlapping expertise in marketing, food, and farming to address some of the common challenges facing small farmers and food businesses.
