It’s time to simplify mealtime so that you can better enjoy your family!
You are SO busy with work or volunteering or babies or shuttling your kids around or managing your household or ALL OF THOSE and MORE. You know it’s important to eat dinner at home, as a family, but you just can’t figure out how to make it a bright spot in your day. It feels like one more to-do, and it’s often super stressful to even think about it at the end of a crazy long day.
But…you KNOW you want it to be different. You want dinner to be a time that everyone enjoys and, even if they don’t (the kiddos…because FOR REAL they are fickle little suckers sometimes), you want to come to the table and have the energy to reconnect and love on the folks that matter most, rather than throwing 3 different meals together, at different times, and then collapsing in front of your bowl of cereal and glass of wine.
You are in the right place. I am here to help you find the strategies, meal ideas, and even some shortcuts, to help you simplify, and ultimately, enjoy dinnertime. This site is chock full of ideas on how to choose meal planning strategies that work for you and your family, dinner ideas for family-friendly healthful meals that can be made in under 30 minutes (on most nights), and great shortcuts and meal helpers from Wildtree. Below are the ways that I more personally help folks simplify dinnertime.
What? Meal planning coaching?? I know…that sounds super crazy, way too Type A and organized for you. Deep breath. If dinnertime is a constant stressor in your home, if you’re super busy with work and kids and just want someone to guide you, point you and/or tell you what to do to make it simpler, then 1-on-1 meal planning coaching is perfect for you.
I offer several levels of support, starting as low as $40 that range from quick calls to talk you through your immediate challenges to more consistent touch-points that allow us to develop a plan that works for you and your family, including meal plans, recipes, and strategies for making sure that dinner is not an after-thought in your home.

From Krista, a wife and busy mom of 2:
It’s almost time to start my weekly menu and grocery planning so I can get groceries. And it’s so easy now that Angie Trueblood put together this awesome binder and meal planner worksheet for me!! Everything is organized so it’s easy for me to find dinner ideas based on how much time I have each night. She even included great ideas for different veggie, rice, etc side dishes to get us out of our broccoli and rice rut. If you dread meal planning and grocery prep, give Angie a call and she can help. ??She also helped me with ideas for the pantry, the ClickList and grocery pickup services at Kroger and Walmart, ideas for school lunches, breakfast and snacks….awesome stuff!!
From Carol, who needed me to talk her off her meal planning ledge:
Angie calmed me down so I wasn’t totally freaking out and set me on the correct path about what I needed to do. With just a short, 30-minute call and follow-up email, she helped me stop and kind of reset myself. I was able to actually listen to what she thought might be the best way for me to organize meal planning for my family.
