This is the newest and FOURTH of Lillie's cookbooks and it contains over 60 tasty, macro-friendly recipes to add to your healthy-cooking arsenal! This book can simply serve as your next macro-friendly cookbook. Of course these are recipes you won't find in my other books. However, this book is also meant to help us get the hang of our PLANNING, so inside these pages you'll also find a detailed six-week meal plan equipped with grocery lists.  I’ve organized each of the six weeks in a way that MY family would love to eat. Every meal feels fresh and new without starting from scratch each night.  The weeks are planned for you,  with repeat ingredients and meals that feed into each other--to maximize your groceries and your efforts!  


Similar to my first cookbook, Lillie Eats and Tells, you’ll prep a protein, use it fresh in a dinner recipe that night, and then again in at least one other dinner that week. Sometimes, you’ll use that protein for lunch as well.

In order to keep things interesting, in the second half of the book, you’ll find a large selection of bonus “quick meals” that you can plug in as needed throughout the week. Between the recipes planned into the six-weeks, and the bonus section of sweets/breakfasts, lunches and dinners, you'll have more than enough to keep your menu as simple or varied as you'd like! Your meals will be balanced and full of nutrients.
This will simplify your dinner time, your meal prep, and your grocery shopping! It will leave you with more time for the things that matter most to you, and fewer straggler items wilting in your fridge. You can follow the plan precisely, or simply enjoy the recipes throughout the book as you wish!

IF YOU DON'T COUNT MACROS: Great! Just enjoy knowing your recipes and meal-plan (if you choose to use it) are well balanced, lightened up, and TASTY.


IF YOU DO COUNT MACROS: Each recipe in this plan not only has the macros listed, but also pre-loaded into the My Fitness Pal (MFP) app. Simply search "Lillie Eats and Tells" plus the name of the recipe, OR SCAN THE BARCODE provided! This is a new feature I'm SO EXCITED about. As with all of my books, you can log the suggested serving size or change it to fit your needs. This will give you tons of flexibility. I have not created the meal-plan portion to fill every calorie of your day. Rather, it will take care of the important parts (Protein! Veggies! Flavor!) ... while leaving you wiggle room to larger portions, more toppings, or your favorite snacks.


If you count macros (with a traditional, non-keto focused breakdown), this plan should naturally help you hit your goals.  My meals are generally low in fat, high in protein, and moderate-to-low in carbs. It’s true that not everyone shares the same goals, but this approach is helpful for most—and here’s why:


The majority of new macro counters struggle to hit high protein goals while keeping fats and carbs in check. This is a common theme regardless of body type or goal. Most of us will also find it pretty easy to add in more carbs and fat if we’ve got room. (Bread, grains, fruits, oils, cheese, nuts, avocados—there’s not a meal I wouldn’t love to include it all!) Carbs and fats are much easier to add to your meal than to calculate and remove. Which is to say, if you want your fats or carbs higher, GREAT! That will be easy. But these recipes are designed to tackle the hard part by providing you with a protein-rich meal that is beautiful, filling, and tasty.


If you eat the suggested serving size in this plan for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert each day, you’ll land between 1000–1300 calories—with over 100 grams of protein! This calorie count is intentionally low in order to allow you plenty of wiggle room for snacks, toppings, or larger portion sizes.  If you need extra protein without increasing carbs and fat, simply log and add more of the prepped protein to your meals. Having that lean, isolated protein makes hitting those goals SO much easier!

GLUTEN/ DAIRY FRIENDLY: This book was written while I was eliminating gluten and dairy which means every recipe is either written naturally GF and DF, or there are notes to make them so! You'll see product suggestions and substitutions and a way to log both version, OR notes if the macro-variance is small. If you do NOT watch your gluten and dairy, don't worry! These are not made with weird ingredients or lacking in flavor. You'll see options to add cheese etc. This should make it super flexible for all of us!
