85. Lillie Eats & Tells | Healthy + Easy Meal Planning Even Picky Eaters Will Love

85. Lillie Eats & Tells | Healthy + Easy Meal Planning Even Picky Eaters Will Love

After a long day, whether at work or running after the kids, the last thing you want to think about is cooking up dinner. I mean, with picky eaters and piling up dishes, ordering take out sounds prettyyyy nice most nights.

But, as we all know, it’s best to know what’s going into the food we are eating. 

So how can we make cooking more simple AND healthy for ourselves and our families?

Thankfully, Brittany is inviting cookbook author, content creator, and Macro queen, Lillie Biesinger, onto the podcast today to answer just this.

After embracing the Macro Counting lifestyle (you’ll learn more about this in just a second!), Lillie began to see great results in her physical and mental health. But there was no way she was going to eat a Laughing Cow cheese wedge mixed into egg whites for the rest of her days. 

Now THAT is something we can all relate to.

Cooking was far too important in her life, and she wanted to include her kids, in a healthy way, into her love of cooking and food.

So she set out on a mission to create her OWN real, satisfying, DELICIOUS meals. Meals heavy with flavor and variety, and even with size and volume, and yet light on macros!

Now with a community of over 547,000 and authoring 4 cookbooks, we’d say: Mission Accomplished.

In this episode, Brittany and Lillie are chatting about what her lifestyle looks like now, and how she’s creating meals her whole family loves. Tune in to hear: 
• Exactly what a macro is and why it’s not so scary
• How Lillie got started on her content creation journey
• Healthy ways  to include your kids in a healthy lifestyle
• Lillie’s favorite + easy go to recipes (including one pot meals!)
• Where to begin with meal prepping for you week

So, really quickly, here is some information on exactly what a macro is, just so you know it’s not all that complex if you wanted to look into what ‘counting macros’ look like!

‘Macros’ refers to the word MacroNutrients which are your Carbs, Fats, and Proteins. Essentially, it’s a more detailed way to track calories. But! On our health journeys, if our goal is to lose weight, we want to make sure we are targeting losing body fat and keeping muscle. This is where protein consumption matters a lot! You’ll hear Lillie chat about exactly how to create protein-filled meals throughout the episode.

Speaking of those recipes, here are her three go-to meals you can easily prep for the week, and some being only a one dish endeavor!
White Chicken Chili
Pork Tenderloin with Chimichurri
BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich with Cilantro Lime Slaw

You’ll also hear Lillie talk about her favorite Target cutting board. So of course we are including that for you here!

Friend, if you’re tired of the question ‘what are we eating for dinner?’ and not having an answer, this episode is going to be your guide on how to make healthy AND delicious meals. You’ve got this.

For more of Lillie, you can follow her on Instagram, find new recipes on her blog or shop her cookbooks!
