10-Day Meal Planning Bootcamp
Meal planning. It’s either the Best Thing In The World or a Total Nightmare, depending on the time of year, what’s going on in my life, and—honestly—how hungry I am at the moment. And I’m supposed to be a food professional! But… here’s a thing that might be helpful to all of us: a free 10-Day Meal Planning Bootcamp.
It’s 10 fun challenges that will make you a meal planning superstar.
The Bootcamp runs from December 20 through January 8, and unlike a real bootcamp, it doesn’t required combat boots and no one will be yelling at you!
Each day, you’ll receive an email that includes a meal planning tip and a task—each challenge is designed to take just 20 minutes. (Really! 20 minutes. You can set a timer and test the veracity of that statement!) You’ll tackle stuff like the nuts-and-bolts of planning, setting up your pantry like a pro, the quickest veggie sides, kitchen organization, and more.

Sounds awesome, I’ve signed up! I’ll be starting the year with another whole30 so could really use some new planning tips!
Meal planning is my nemesis, I am determined to make peace with it in 2018, because life is so much easier when I have a plan. Would love some good tips, just wondering who is doing the Bootcamp, anyone know?
It’s sponsored by the people behind Ultimate Bundles, and I *believe* it was put together by a crew of food bloggers. I’ve seen it, and it’s pretty great. And it’s free, so… why not? If you don’t like it, you can always unsubscribe.
Wondering if you could clarify something for me…you say 6-8 cups of veggies per day…how many ounces/pounds would that be…I shop once a week as I live a half hour to the nearest grocery store so knowing how many pounds of veggies I would need would be most helpful.
I wish I could tell you specifically, but different veggies have different weights. One way for you to estimate is to try something like this:
At lunch every day: 1 carrot, 1/2 cucumber, 1/2 bell pepper
At dinner (M-F): broccoli, green beans, kale, brussels sprouts, zucchini
extras: lettuce, scallions for salads
If you buy about 1 pound of each of the dinner veggies and 7 carrots, 4 bell peppers, 4 cucumbers, and 2 heads of lettuce that should get you close to a week’s worth of veggies. You can start with a template like that, try it a few times, then tweak it as you better learn your habits.

Thank you…I was thinking about 7 pounds per week or more would cover it, but just wanted to be sure. I try to have more then less and this is a great starting point.
count me in!
The sign up page does not seem to be working. Nothing happens after I fill in everything and hit “sign up.”
Hi, Brian! You might try it again… I just tested it and it worked fine. If you continue to have problems, email me and I’ll put you in touch with someone who can help.
I was able to submit thru a different browser. Seems like it didn’t like Chrome.
Is there a way to catch up? I tried to sign up, but it says that it is closed since it is obviously already in progress. I get that, but I really need help in this area!! Please!
I don’t know if the organizers are planning to open it up again. I’ll see what I can find out!
