Warmer Weather Here We Come! 

IMG_3890.JPG

Spring marks the start of so many new and exciting veggies popping back in to say hello after a long winter. I don’t know about you, but I sure am excited for the warmer weather!

After a very long winter (so it felt for me), the sun has started peaking out and everything seems to have bloomed overnight. Even though summer and spring can feel like they may be all fun and games. It can be hard for some to make the transition into the warmer months. Going from working long hours because it’s too cold to do anything, to having more time (and sun) to go out with friends at night and on the weekends. I know many struggle with balancing going out and cooking nourishing food that keeps us light and energized.

Though Spring has started a while ago, we also have a full summer ahead of us! Even though I love my weekends away and going out to eat, I do start to feel like I am in a bit of a slump when I don’t have enough nourishing home cooked meals. One way I like to stay on track is by meal planning and prepping.

I am here to let you know that even in the seasons when all you want to do is be outside, it is possible to stay on track with meal prepping, and it doesn’t have to take up your whole Sunday. Trust me, I am LIVING PROOF.

I have been preparing most of my meals for the past six years. This is all while being a premed student with a rigorous course load AND working AND volunteering and then transitioning to working full time in clinical setting with early morning meetings and long days on my feet.

Though my professional life has changed quite a bit over the years, I have never compromised what I put in my body because I know that like good fuel, good food would help fuel my body and brain to be the best version of myself!  

If you feel overwhelmed about balancing all of the spring and summer plans and want to make sure you’re eating well or if you feel like you need inspiration about what cook for the week, or even need help planning your meals in advance, I have something for you...

Introducing: Nonna Gaby's Spring/Summer Meal Plan

Your guide to quick and easy meals that will have you feeling inspired to prep in your kitchen! 

I know that I always feel better when I am cooking for myself and eating my own food and I am sure that you do too. I created my first Meal Plan for so many reasons: for my friends and co-workers who would stare enviously at my color filled packed lunch containers, for those busy parents that feel like they can’t catch a minute and especially, and most importantly, for YOU! 

Once you get cooking with me in the Spring/Summer Meal Plan, you'll see that meal prep and planning doesn't have to be a whole big thing... I often spend 15-20 minutes on my meals and have leftovers for lunch the next day and then some. In Nonna Gaby's Spring/Summer Meal Plan I will teach you meal prepping tips and tricks and recipes that are super simple and delicious. 

You will learn how to cook efficiently, and as a result you'll be eating more healthy, whole foods (because YOU will be making it) and ultimately you will feel amazing! And let's be real, we don't have time to be feeling less than great in the Spring/Summer because there are so many fun things happening! These recipes are foolproof (I am a huge fool and I created them) so even if you make a mistake or adjustment, they will still taste great! 

Taking classes with Nonna Gaby has been a game changer! I’m a busy mom with a full-time job and eating healthy is a priority- but often the recipes and resources out there require a lot of ingredients, time and are complicated. One week I was exceptionally busy AND I was solo parenting, so I used Nonna Gaby’s simple, delicious and healthy recipes to get me through the week. She makes cooking easy and teaches how to use what you have on hand rather than needing to make an extra trip to the store to get more ingredients. I’ve gained more confidence in the kitchen and have fun prepping and cooking meals. I can’t recommend Nonna Gaby highly enough!
