Why You Don't Cook
DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?
Hi, I’m Kim Flynn. I’m the founder of Card Salad. I’ll tell you about our Eat Well program in just a minute. But right now, I want you to review in your mind what you had for dinner last night.
Did you order a pizza? Find some quick freezer fare? Refrigerator graze?
The reason why we aren’t cooking good REAL foods for ourselves and our family each day is because you are missing both SYSTEMS and HABITS.
Systems & Habits
WHY YOU NEED BOTH
If you want to develop ANY good habit–whether it is cooking and eating real foods, or studying to learn a new language–you will need both a SYSTEM to follow and a HABIT to make it happen.
If you were to start cooking real foods six days a week (gulp!) you would definitely need a system. You would need a weekly shopping list, and recipes to follow.
Habits not Diets
THE SLOW CUT IS THE SHORT CUT
But if you aren’t in the habit of cooking dinner every night, forcing yourself to cook every night for a week would be painful and grueling. This is why diets don’t work. They are too extreme and your body and brain rebel against extremes.
You need to slowly, gently instill HABITS into your routine.
And the secret to instilling habits is not to move from one extreme to the other. The secret to instilling habits is to follow the middle way, building a series of habits that stack onto each other.
So What is Eat Well?
SYSTEMS & HABITS FOR EATING REAL FOOD
The Eat Well program is both a SYSTEM:
- A menu board to remind you what is for dinner each night
- Done-for-you shopping lists
- Recipes delivered to your door
And HABIT building:
- Daily habit cards that stack on each other.
- Recipes that start out hearty and gently move to leaner fare.
- Daily mindset training that moves you into self-acceptance and away from body shame.
Worried about Failing?
IT'S NOT YOU. IT'S THEM.
If you are considering starting this program, but worried about falling off the wagon like so many plans before, consider this.
If you want to lose weight with this program:
- The dieting industry has done such a disservice to women (and men), telling us that our bodies aren’t acceptable unless we are over-thin, and telling us that we need to aggressively change everything about our lifestyles to see success.
- The reason why you haven’t been able to keep weight off long term is not because you are lacking discipline. It’s because you haven’t had a system with habits before.
If you want to get organized with this program:
- Just like dieting, if you have tried to overhaul your home systems and meal planning habits overnight they probably didn’t “take.” Instead of extremes, build your habits with the Eat Well program to last a lifetime.
TAKE THE STRESS OUT OF MEAL PLANNING
Here’s what Tyffani says:
“The board is a nice way to put away all the electronic device distractions while we enjoy time in the kitchen. The recipes are all quite delicious, with enough variety that most anyone will find some new family favorites.
We have some dietary sensitivity in our home, and it was easy enough to substitute for the sensitivities. Love having my month planned out for me so I can spend a little more time swinging in my hammock.”
The Eat Well Starter Kit comes with
#1 Menu Board
Hang your Menu Board on your refrigerator and you will always know what is for dinner. The recipe cards hang on the Menu Board for each day of the week.
#2 Recipe Cards
You will receive beautiful, delicious recipes each month that will gently guide you to healthier eating. You will start out with restaurant-style foods and gradually move to leaner recipes as your body starts craving a better diet.
#3 Weekly Shopping List
Each week you will receive recipes for 6 dinners, 4 sides, and a dessert. The shopping list is coordinated with the recipes each week. Shopping has never been easier or more convenient.
#4 Daily Habit Cards
This is the magic. We will walk you through setting up daily habits to transform your health, one small step at a time. No discipline or shame needed.
Two Recipe Programs
EVERYDAY GOURMET OR HEALTHY LIVING
Everyday Gourmet recipes start out hearty and move gradually to leaner and leaner fare. This is where you will start if you are used to eating lots of restaurant food or freezer fare.
If you are already used to eating a leaner diet, we suggest starting with the Healthy Living recipes. These include lean meats and lots of vegetables.
If you are somewhere between the two, start with Everyday Gourmet.
We do NOT recommend starting with the Healthy Living recipes if you are not already eating mostly plant-based foods. If you jump right into the leaner Healthy Living recipes, you will just be starting another diet.
Walk away from wanting quick results, and start moving towards building habits for the rest of your life. It is counter-intuitive. The slow cut is the short cut.
LESS CHICKEN NUGGETS AND RAMEN
Here’s what Wesley Rohm says:
“I have used the Eat Well system for 2 months now and I think it’s just great. The shopping list is already made and coordinates with all the recipes- it’s so easy and saves me hours of finding things that look good at the store. I hate grocery shopping so I love how easy it is to get in the habit of placing my order online and not worrying if I forgot anything.
My kids love the recipes, my teenagers are in charge of cooking 2 nights a week- they get to choose their card and can follow the recipe really easily. Our family is eating more vegetables and real food now. Less chicken nugget and ramen last minute meals.
I have felt more energized and have felt and seen changes in my body from eating better food- it feels great!”

WHY SHOULDN'T I JOIN THIS PROGRAM?
If you are still wanting a quick fix–another 30-day diet of restriction and counting and obsessing, this program is not for you.
You will not be counting calories, fat grams, or carbs. You will not be timing yourself or limiting your food intake to certain times of the day. You will not be weighing yourself or measuring your waistline. You will also not be restricting foods, starving yourself, or enforcing strict dieting rules.
WHAT KINDS OF FOOD WILL I MAKE?
Our Eat Well Everyday Gourmet recipes come with lots of variety. Each week you will cook a variety of meals from steak and chicken, to vegetarian, to old fashioned Grandma’s cooking.
If you are already used to eating a leaner diet, we suggest starting with the Healthy Living recipes. We do NOT recommend starting with the Healthy Living recipes if you are used to freezer fare and fast food. Slow and gentle, remember!
Everything you cook will be real-food based. Most of your shopping will be in the produce section and meat/dairy aisle. The Eat Well program guides you through habits and meal planning that encourage life long, sustainable healthy eating.
HOW MANY RECIPES COME WITH THE STARTER KIT?
Your Eat Well Starter Kit comes with 30 days of done-for-you meal planning. Each week comes with 6 recipes for dinners, 4 side dishes and one dessert. Simply place each recipe on your weekly Menu Board (mounted on your fridge or pantry for easy access) and voila! Meal planning is done.
HOW MUCH WEIGHT WILL I LOSE?
If you are joining the Eat Well program to lose weight, dieting research tells us that diets don’t work long term! If you need to lose weight, your best bet to lose weight permanently is by eating a sensible, moderate, mainly plant-based diet. This is what Eat Well is!
If you have weight to lose, we highly recommend starting with the Everyday Gourmet recipes and working slowly through them, getting leaner and leaner each month.
HOW DOES THE AUTO-SHIP PROGRAM WORK AFTER THE STARTER KIT?
With the Starter Kit, you will be automatically enrolled in the monthly Eat Well program, which comes with a monthly kit of new recipe cards, shopping lists, and habit cards. If you ever change your mind, you can discontinue or pause the program at any time.
To cancel or skip a month, you simply need to “pause” your monthly subscription by logging into your customer account. Pausing or cancelling your monthly subscription needs to be done 14 days before your next delivery to avoid being included in the shipment for that month.
WHAT IS THE MONEY BACK GUARANTEE?
Ordering is RISK FREE. In short, if you’re not satisfied for any reason, just contact our office anytime within 30 days of ordering, send us the starter kit back, and we will refund you minus a small restocking fee. No questions asked. There is no risk to get started.
