Learn To Simplify Meal Prep To Save Time, Meal Plan To Cook With Confidence & Eat Well For Health | taught by Barb Kemp

Course description

Welcome!  I'm Barb, a passionate home cook and food educator. Thanks for taking the time to look at this course.

So many of us would like to simplify meal prep, eat healthy foods and cook more meals at home. Prepare meals with foods that truly nourish ourselves and our families and scrap all the take-out, processed, pre-made foods that are typically fatty, sugary and salty.  

But lets face's hard to find the time to cook for our families...with juggling work, family, social events and everyday chores. It's a problem.

But what if you had someone guiding you through the process of home cooking.  Showing you how to simplify meal prep for healthy dinners, choose the best foods at the grocery store and meal plan to eat well and save time.  Then you'd cook healthy, tasty meals for your family and friends with confidence. I promise!

 Barb Kemp, Food Educator with 15 years experience
It's why I created this course. 

For the past 15 years I've been delivering healthy eating and cooking courses to home cooks.  What I've found is that everyone wants the same simple things. They:
  • wish to simplify meal prep and cook more healthy dinners so they can take better care of themselves and their families. But they can't find time.
  • wish to learn how to choose healthy foods at the grocery store, but are overwhelmed with all the food choices.
  • need healthy dinner ideas.
  • wish to save money on groceries and waste less food.
  • wish to be more organized with meal plans so they can save money, time and eat more variety.
  • wish to feel inspired, motivated & gain confidence with their cooking skills. 

At the end of the 4 week guided course you'll turn cooking into a successful habit and have the healthiest family possible.

What You Get:

The course is meant to be taken over 4 weeks, or you can go at your own pace. You'll get:

  • 32 educational & skills-based videos over 4 weekly sessions
  • weekly challenges to support you
  • weekly workbooks with recipes
  • bi-weekly email support and access to instructor
  • recipe Booklet with over 25 simple tasty recipes from the workbooks
  • meal planning and shopping list template
  • 5 day completed meal plan with recipes and shopping list
  • subscription to the Recipes To The Rescue Newsletter
  • money-back guarantee, if you aren't satisfied after 2 weeks

At the end of the course you will:

  • be preparing yummy, healthy meals for family and friends (with pride).
  • know how to create well-balanced meals (and take better care of yourself and your family).
  • be preparing weekly meal plans that match your lifestyle (yeah!).
  • be eating less take-out and processed foods (and saving time and money!).
  • be serving meals full of variety that your family want to eat (and not making the same meals every night).
  • be choosing the healthiest foods at the grocery store with confidence & start reading food labels.
  • simplify meal prep to save time and effort in the kitchen (so you can watch more Netflix).
  • save money on groceries and waste less food (plus save the planet!).
  • reduce the stress of home cooking with many healthy dinner ideas.
  • feel inspired to cook more meals at home (success!).
 This course is a basic healthy eating course and not meant for those on specific specialized diets.

Course Sessions

Session One

The program kicks off by setting you up for success.  In this session you'll come away convinced that food matters and become inspired to cook more at home.  We'll show you how to chop onions and garlic and show you how to make a Tomato Meat Sauce Recipe.                                                              

Session Two

In the second session we'll explore food.  You'll understand the importance of eating real food and discover ways to include more fruits and veggies in your diet.  By the end of the week you will be whipping up delicious salads and whizzing up tasty smoothies.

Session Three

In this session we ask the question, "Do you really know what's in your food?"  You'll learn to decipher food labels so they aren't so confusing.  Understanding what's in your food will help you eat better.  As well, you learn some different ways to save money at the grocery store (who doesn't like saving money?).  We dive into talking about grains and fibre, especially the importance of fibre and how to increase your intake so you can feel healthier.  By the end of the week you will be preparing a soup, a wrap or a pasta primavera which all help increase your daily fibre.

Session Four

Taking a little bit of time each week to get organized is the best thing you can do to establish great cooking habits.  In this session you'll learn how to plan your weekly meals so you can save money, save time, eat better and eat less take-out. By the end of the session you will be enjoying yourself in the kitchen cooking up delicious Veggie Chili, Quiche or Easy Curry Chicken.  You'll be on the road towards establishing a healthy happy kitchen.

Hello and Welcome!  I’m Barb Kemp, a passionate home cook and creator of Cooking Reboot.  I’m a food educator with over 15 years of experience. I get very excited talking and teaching about all things food, healthy eating and cooking.  My hope is, through this course, you too will get hooked on real food and home cooking.  

My love of food and cooking began in my twenties when I was advised to become vegetarian for health reasons.  The problem was I liked meat and potatoes and didn’t really know how to cook.  I ate whatever I wanted, including takeout foods filled with sugar, salt, and fat.  Embracing the challenge, I learned to cook,  Then I started to add more veggies and whole grains into my diet and I discovered a whole new positive lifestyle change.

Later, when I became a mom, one of our children developed a food allergy and all meals had to be made from scratch. I struggled at first, but once again welcomed the change and learned to menu plan.  It was a game changer.

Eventually, I switched careers and started writing and teaching about home cooking, meal planning and fresh whole foods. 

Today, many home cooks lack food knowledge and confidence in the kitchen, just as I once did. In some ways, the need to cook is declining, as prepared food is everywhere. Yet for many of us there’s a  desire to cook nourishing meals at home.That’s why I write the Recipes To The Rescue Blog, Newsletter and created the Cooking Reboot online courses.  They're enjoyable and relatable for the everyday home cook and teach habits and skills that can easily become part of a healthy lifestyle. Learning the magic of menu planning and gaining the confidence to cook saved me and my family…and it can save yours too.

Join me and together we’ll bring joy into your home kitchen.
