Thank you so much for your order. IF YOU HAVE REACHED THIS PAGE, YOUR ORDer has been received. Have questions about the meal plans? Please review the FAQs below.
Q. How do I access my meal plans?
A. Meal plans are sent out by email every Friday morning. If you do not see it in your inbox, please check your spam/trash folder and verify that you have the correct email address in paypal. If you have done those things and you still cannot find it, simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get another one sent right out to you.
Q. Can’t wait! Just placed my order. How do we let you know our food preferences? For example, no eggs for breakfast?
A. The same meal plan will be sent to everyone, but will contain a list of substitutions for common food allergies, likes and dislikes.
Q. I love the meal plans but I need to cancel my subscription for the time being. How can I do that?
A. Easy peasy! You can cancel at any time from within your Paypal account.
Q. Just ordered 4 weeks. Will there be a reminder email when the 4 weeks are over, or is this only going for 4 weeks?
A. Reminder emails are not sent out. However, when you realize how much you love them and decide you want to order more, you do have the option to subscribe. You will be charged the $4.99 weekly and a new plan will go out every Friday. You can cancel your subscription at any time.
Q. You say this is an opt in / opt out plan. What exactly does that mean and how will you know which week I am supposed to get?
A. It simply means that you are never under any obligation. You can jump in or jump out at any time. I keep track of which week everyone is on. Even if you take a month off and then re-order, I will know which week you left off on and which week you should get next.
Q. How many carbs per day are your meal plans?
A. The meal plans will be set up so that you can mix/match your meals for the day to stay within the carb range that you want. All recipes will be less than 10 net carbs per serving – most will be much less than that. These plans will be suitable even for those that are trying to stay in the 20-30 gram per day range.
Q. Are you only using recipes from your site, or will it be a mix of recipes from your site and your cookbooks?
A. The meal plans will be a mix of recipes from my site, brand new recipes exclusive to the meal plans, my cookbooks and from some of my favorite low carb bloggers (with permission).
Q. I am located outside of the United States, can I still use this menu plan? Will I be able to find the ingredients necessary to make the recipes?
A. The meal plans are made with only unprocessed, real, whole food ingredients, making them easy to find in other countries.
Q. Do you have a sample plan I can see?
A. The sales page is very detailed and contains actual pictures from the meal plans. That way, you know exactly what to expect and there are no surprises. You can revisit the sales page here.
Q. Do the recipes in the meal plan contain dairy? If so, are there substitutions?
A. Yes, the recipes have dairy. There will not be substitutions written in for the dairy, although in many recipes it can just be omitted. I will be developing more specialized plans down the road.
Q. How many people is the meal plan intended to feed? Also, how much is the average weekly cost of groceries on your plans?
A. It is written for 2 to 4 people but can easily be scaled up or down. As for an average weekly shopping cost, the price of groceries is different in every state—dependent upon the cost of living, minimum wage etc. However, many people have commented that after the first couple of weeks (after building up the fridge and pantry staples) that their grocery bills have been drastically reduced and that there is virtually no waste.
Q. Why are there only 3 of each meal? I thought this was a 5 day meal plan?
A. When you look at the meals for the week, you will see that there are 3-4 meals in each category – Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Side Dishes as well as an extensive snack list. It is written this way so that there are enough servings in each category for 5 days worth of food. For example, between the 3 breakfast recipes in the Week 1 Meal Plan, there are 20 servings total. That is enough to feed 4 people breakfast for 5 days. I am utilizing leftovers to make this plan easy to stick to. The idea is to save money, reduce waste and spend less time in the kitchen. You can save that extra time for family and friends by prepping meals in advance and in the right portions so that you aren’t cooking every day, 3 times a day.
