  1. Hi Darcie! I'm new(ish) to THM and was so happy to find your blog because I've had the hardest time getting going. It seems so simple to separate your fats and carbs and avoid added sugars, but it's not as easy as it sounds! Quick questions: how many people does your weekly meal plan cover? and do you have a weekly budget for food? Thanks!

    1. Hi Amanda! All my breakfasts and lunches are just for me unless otherwise noted. All my dinners feed my family of 6. My monthly grocery budget is $450 for everything including toiletries, paper products and I have one in diapers. My kids are 50% on pland and my husband is about 75% on plan

  2. Thank you, Darcie for making my life easier and more fun in the "cooking world" with sharing you're meal plans and recipes! I love how you make your own taco seasoning, enchilada sauce, etc. I made your Burrito bowl for dinner yesterday, and it was delish. I plan to make lots more of your meals/recipes! THX!
