Sprouted Kitchen Cooking Club
Preparing meals from scratch is time consuming, let alone the planning, shopping and prepping. Week in and week out, often for conflicting diets or tastes (I'm looking at you, toddlers).
With everything else vying for your attention throughout the day, it's no wonder so many of us resort to take-out or packaged meals by the time dinner rolls around. Home cooked and wholesome be damned, you're tired.
we believe that eating well shouldn't be Difficult.
Sprouted Kitchen Cooking Club provides a streamlined plan for busy people so they can put tasty, real food in their bodies and on their tables.
Developed from experience.
Over the years, through the journey of publishing Sprouted Kitchen, writing cookbooks, teaching classes, contributing to magazines, and talking friends through weeknight dinner hangups, I've developed shortcuts and practices for cooking efficiently and well for my own family.
With that in mind, we have set out to create Sprouted Kitchen Cooking Club, a program that will assist in getting people to the table with tasty, healthy-ish food in a simple and sustainable way.

What people are saying about Cooking Club
“Yumm! Week one was amazing. My husband was skeptical (he is about basically anything that costs something) and he is a whole hearted SK Cooking Club believer after this week. My fave was the salad and his were the tacos! Oh and we devoured the honey fudge in like 24 hours.”
“I just wanted to drop you a note to say how frickin excited I am about this! When I first read about it, I wasn't sure it would be for me, but decided to sign up anyway since I love your books so much. I work crazy hours, so I almost never cook during the week, so I didn't think this would click for me, but I was totally wrong!! I came home late last night from a crazy Labor Day weekend, really not in the mood to grocery shop, let alone cook. I have to say, I did not realize how much effort just THINKING about what I wanted to cook/buy took. By just going on auto pilot and buying what was on the list and cooking the first recipe, I got a great, much needed wholesome meal, and it felt SO EASY TO DO!! Not having to use my brain to think/organize just made all the difference in the world. Tacos are on the menu tonight - so excited to try the next recipe!!”
“I've made two of the recipes for week 1 (got a late start after the holiday weekend!) The pasta and grilled salmon tacos were both great! What I like so much about this cooking club is the shopping list. I pretty much wing it when it comes to meals and often don't have the right ingredients with many last minute trips to the grocer, when I do plan it's generally for one meal. So it's awesome to do one trip to the market and have everything readily at hand for 3 meals and dessert to boot!”
I wanted to let you know how much I've appreciated jumping on the bandwagon of Sprouted Kitchen Cooking Club. At first I was hesitant, because I often commit to things that I don't always follow through on but I was desperate enough for some dinner inspiration, that I joined. Not to mention, the cost per month is super affordable and doable for us.
I have only completed the first week but I've made all three meals and the dessert and not only do I feel a fresh wave of inspiration in the kitchen but I am learning how to use foods I don't normally buy while. At the same time I've felt so much pride in serving something fresh and delicious to my family. My two little boys have eaten everything and taken risks on new foods because of the delicious combination of flavors.
This week I'll be doubling the recipes as we are hosting. I usually have a few freak out moments when I think about what to cook for guests and I typically resort to my same old same old go-to's. This time around, I don't have the stress of putting together a grocery list (done) and I am confident in whatever Sara has thoughtfully pieced together for the week. I know it will be a treat for me and the guests I am serving.
I'm really glad I joined, It's breathed some life into my cooking routine.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a Cooking Club membership cost?
When you sign up for Cooking Club your first week is free, after which membership is $6.99 per month. This breaks down to $1.75 per week or less than 43¢ per recipe.
How many recipes will I receive each week?
Each weekly plan will provide four recipes - three meals and one treat or snack. My desire is to close the gap between the experienced cook who makes everything from scratch, and the person who fears the kitchen. SKCC is designed to build confidence in the people who are overwhelmed by dinner but aspire to cook more at home.
I believe that three dinners at home is a reasonable number for the average home cook, who can then fill in other nights with their staple meals, going out, social plans and what not. Personally, I find five meals of planning to be too much, whereas three leaves room for plans changing, leftovers or a pizza and movie night should the mood strike.
Recipes are free online, Sara.
I know! Isn't that great? There is so much great content that it can even be too much for some of us. If you are organized and like the searching and pinteresting and list making and you have the skills to whip up a quick pan sauce with what you have on hand without a recipe, this program is probably not for you. I am aware this isn't for everyone. This is for the guy or gal who wants someone to help simplify their meal planning, make dinner a little easier on them, and remove the fear from cooking. My goal is to build confidence and offer a very usable resource for people who want to eat better at home but aren't quite sure how to get there.
What kind of food can I expect?
I eat a produce heavy diet, with seafood and poultry on occasion. I'm not overly concerned with labeling my food choices, but I know that is important for a program like this. I don't follow strict rules, but I do pay attention to what makes me feel good. I lean towards a mediterranean or anti inflammatory diet, where there is limited use of wheat, dairy and animal proteins, with wiggle room. I focus on using seasonal produce, healthy fats, legumes and nuts. Food choices should not be a game of "good" and "bad", you will see the substitutions for various diets in the recipe notes. You will catch on to my staple ingredients and adjust as necessary. This can be as simple as adding a grilled chicken breast to a vegetarian entree to up the protein content or leaving sausage out of a pasta dish if you prefer it vegetarian - either way, all notes will be there in the side bar so the plan works for your eating habits.
Where will it go from here?
I pivoted my plans from writing a third cookbook to this project, as I believe it may lead to a more communal place to cook alongside people. I want to lead people back to the dinner table. If there is enough interest, this could lead to an app, more video content, grocery lists that interface with delivery services that exist, recipes that can adjust for number of people serving, or a number of other potential features. We started a Facebook group so we can share ideas about what we swapped or did with the extra dressing. I am excited to chat with you, and help however needed, of course.
I am also quite passionate about inviting people into our home - ordinary hospitality - and I think that has gotten away from us in the time of curated Instagram pages which sometimes discourage people from hosting, if they are not an amazing cook. Maybe once a month we can add one recipe that is written for closer to 8 people? I can give lots of make ahead tips so YOU will invite people over and I can walk you through getting a simple, vibrant dinner on the table. I don't know! So many thoughts. We're starting this thing rather lean with the desire to refine and improve it based off of the feedback we get from real users. So while we may not be able to make shifts quickly, we are always open to your ideas.
