Healthnut: A Collective Meal Plan that is Seasonally-Inspired, and Community-Supported

January 2, 2018


Hey Ya'll!


It's 2018 and I want to share a little news with you about Happy Belly Life.


Happy Belly Life will turn two years old this year!  In 2017 Happy Belly Life experienced an official name change with the county of Monroe in New York State.


We changed from Happy Belly Nutrition to Happy Belly Life.  We did this because we felt a little bit restricted branding ourselves exclusively in nutrition.  Nutrition is excellent and of course important, but nutrition is also just one small piece of the whole health puzzle. Beginning this year, we are broadening our services to involve programs that encourage members to apply what they learn about nutrition and healthy eating.


The first of these programs is Healthnut.


Healthnut is a community-based, subscription meal plan program in which we will release one new 5-day meal plan on the first day of each calendar month.  Each meal plan will provide 7-8 seasonally-based recipes, a grocery list, a schedule for batch-cooking the recipes during the week, and a schedule for what to eat and when. 


Most importantly, the Healthnut meal plans will provide community and learning.


When you join Healthnut, you will be invited to join our private online discussion forum.  You will also have access to our recipe-builder and meal-planner worksheets, which provide guidance to help you create your own recipes and meal plans, based on the 5-day meal plan that we'll give you.


I will be present in the discussion forums regularly, as will be my invaluable recipe-creators.  The forums will be a place for all Healthnut members to pose questions directly to me, my recipe-creators, and all other Healthnut members.  We can share questions and ideas about nutrition, ingredients, cooking techniques, kitchen tools, meal planning, and much more.  The online community will also serve as a place of inspiration, motivation and celebration!


Finally, I want to share with you one last detail about Healthnut.


Healthnut provides one new 5-day meal plan every four weeks.  We did this intentionally.  First of all, I can't meal prep and cook every week of the month...and food is my business!  So how can I expect anyone else to meal prep
