Lighten Up!

By Katie's Conscious Kitchen

4 Weeks, 53 Recipes

$19.99/mo (Billed Annually)

Light, delicious meals to support weight loss or restore balance after a heavier period of eating.

We all have stretches of heavier eating, holidays, vacations, wintertime, etc. This is perfectly normal and healthy! However, sometimes it can feel good to lighten up our meals and our bodies after a period of heavier eating, to restore balance and energize the mind and body.

This meal plan reflects the way that I eat when I want to lighten up a bit, and is thoughtfully curated to expand your meal repertoire without overwhelming you with too many new recipes each day.

These meals are delicious and satisfying, while being on the lighter side calorically. These 4 weeks of recipes will also teach you some basic, useful cooking skills and support the development of healthy food prep habits along the way.

Most of the meals in this plan are plant-based, with easy swaps for dairy and meat if you prefer. A few of the breakfast recipes contain eggs. For vegans, feel free to swap them for other breakfasts of your choice elsewhere in the meal plan.

Saves Me So Much Time!This app saves me so much time!! The cook mode is amazing. It makes it so you don’t have to scroll from ingredients to directions and the best part, it keeps the screen from going black and having to unlock your phone or iPad mid recipe.

CustomizableIve been struggling with meal planning lately, discovering this app has been extremely helpful. Finding recipes and being able to just transfer the needed ingredients directly to my shopping list is great. You can also change the amount of servings and it will adjust the recipe for you, given I usually need to make recipes smaller as a single mom this is very useful.


Every Mom Needs This App!This app makes meal planning and grocery shopping so much easier. I have 4 kids so I don’t have a lot of free time to meal plan, create a shopping list, then do said shopping. I love Walmart grocery pick up and didn’t think it could get easier but Prepear made it easier.

This is a fun app!This is a fun app. Add your own recipes or look up new ones. Love the meal planning. It helps keep the "whats 4 dinner" question at bay.


No More Endless Blog Scrolling!I have meals dropped into my digital planner and it generates my shopping list for me! I no longer worry about what we are having for dinner because Prepear truly has taken the stress out of meal planning and shopping. No more endless blog scrolling, super cool cook mode feature makes it easy to see ingredients and recipe at the same time.

Search for special dietsThis is an awesome meal planning app and the only one I use now. You can search for special diets, including gluten-free. Each recipe has the option of generating a shopping list for you, so you have everything you need when you go to the store. Ive got about 11 cookbooks saved in here!


Store Everything Together!I came across Prepear whilst I was rushing, trying to look up recipes and write a grocery list. This is great... I can store everything together in one place and it’s so easy to navigate too. Love that I’ve found it as it’s making daily life so much easier!

Done for you planning!My favourite thing is using the premade plans. I dont have to figure out what to put on the calendar. Does every meal work for our family? Nope. But at least it gives me a base to work from - like if there is a noodle dish that wont work for us, I know that I can make a noodle meal that night, etc. I am thankful that I can drag recipes around on the plan so easy.
