Want to test our new Meal Planner / Shopping Lists book?

By Robyn Openshaw, MSW | Jun 23, 2011

We’ve been hard at work, for months, on a companion booklet for 12 Steps to Whole Foods, that has 4 weeks of Menus, with Prep Notes, tips for saving time and money, and 4 weeks of corresponding shopping lists. It also has a list of store types that we shop at, and suggestions for which stores to buy whole-foods ingredients in.

We broke down the costs, and for a family of 4, we spent $100/week on groceries. There goes the idea that eating whole foods isn’t affordable!

We’ve had the request often to develop menu plans / shopping lists from people who are new, from people who don’t cook much, and from people who are used to the “diet” methodologies. (You know I’m resistant to that last thing….but on the other hand, I’m a believer in giving people what they want if it isn’t hurting anyone!)

So, would you like to test the planner for us? Just email support123@greensmoothiegirl.com and if you’re one of the first 10 to ask, Jenni or Jackie will send you a PDF copy.

To participate, you should already have 12 Steps to Whole Foods (and preferably you’ve been working in the course for a while–though that isn’t necessary).

What we ask from you is FEEDBACK after you follow the plan for a month. Anything and everything. Typos, recipes that made too much or too little, things you thought were too much work, ideas, give it all to me!

We’ll be happy to give you credit in the Foreword of the book as one of the editors, plus the printed copy of the book when it’s done.

And if there is any really ambitious 12 Stepper out there who wants to help in a bigger way (we’ll compensate you if you’re chosen), we wouldn’t mind having another 4 weeks of menu plans and shopping lists. Just tell Jenni that you’re interested in working for us on that.

    I would love to try it out! I drink Hot Pink Breakfast Smoothie every morning and don’t think I could give it up though if there is a different breakfast. 🙂 Let me know! Robyn, I hope you are feeling better! Praying for a speedy recovery.

    LOL! I had to laugh, because when we were whole foods vegan we spent $130/month on groceries for two adults and two kids, 3 and 1. BUT we didn’t do a lot of green smoothies and such, so there is that.

    Wow, this is perfect timing! I just spent the day adding up, and then averaging what we spent on whole foods over the past 3 months for just my husband and me. Our average was an embarrassing $550 per month. I cried, then prayed for help. Well, here it is! Please let me test this.

    Thanks, and get well soon!

    You guys are awesome. My husband just ask how much we have been spending these last few months now that we have started the 12 Steps, and it is way more than our previous budget. So I am so excited for this. I hope I am not to late to be a tester. If I am I am happy to pay for it. Also I hope you are healing fast and have a great weekend in Idaho.

    Thank you for this information. I too sent in my email request to preview. My sister and I are loving the 12 steps book, we are enjoying Green Smoothies daily (for a few months now) and have added big salads. I am working on switching to the homemade dressings, and I’ve made your granola which is AWESOME (like everything). The best part is I have even been able to steer my meat-eating boyfriend away from fast food burgers (atleast it’s a start)!

    I would love this! I make a trip once a week to do grocery shopping and would enjoy saving time trying to meal plan each week. This is a great idea.

    Do you know if you will offer this separate when it comes out; for those that have been a 12 stepper for a while?
