Meal prepping usually means spending your weekend planning to cook, and taking a full day out to cook and box all your meals.
Sounds exhausting, right?
A client of mine was meal prepping each weekend and spending 8 hours on Saturday and Sunday, so she could have healthy meals for the week.
Unsurprisingly, she hates giving up her weekend to the process...
Not only was she tired, but she HATED it.
I do not want you to meal prep!
In the traditional sense, that is.
I want you to meal prep the way I teach it:
-Still have your weekend
-Fridge stocked with ready to eat meals
-No cooking, shopping or cleaning during the week
-30% savings on food costs (how about an extra $3,000 a year?!)
Meal prepping really doesn't have to be miserable!!
It can be fun and simple and easy.
You need proper planning, a few hours of blocked time and the confidence that the process doesn't have to be awful.
I would love to help you!

The real American tragedy is TIME: we are so strapped for it, we will do anything to have more of it with our busy lives that we sacrifice our health for it.
Guys, the big businesses know how badly you want more time that they are going to offer to you easy solutions that will kill your health.
Solutions like "fast food" (literally time in the title), that have no regard for your health.
These are the reasons why the US is in the state of declining health it is in.
But when you sacrifice your health to have more time, guess what? You are actually also sacrificing time!
Because when you don't have health, time literally doesn't matter. There is nothing useful you can do with time when you are in a hospital, in a doctors' office, unable to get up and move, or on pills that make you feel terrible.
I want to tell you there is a way for you have both more time and your health.
I spent my career creating it for you.
You can get 15 days worth of time back a year...while eating healthier than you...
If you have tried to clean up your diet before and failed, it’s because you weren’t specific enough!
I see so many people go down this path- they decide they want to eat better, maybe choose a recipe or two, hit the grocery store and by day three they are back to pizza for dinner and feeling super guilty about it.
There is no shame there, my friend!
Here’s how you can prevent that next time: make a list of the foods that will make up 90% of your diet, and then plan ahead for when you’ll be having the indulgent 10%.
What foods make you feel best? Write them all down. Now find recipes that include those foods and do your meal prepping.
This simple process cuts down on temptation SO MUCH!
It makes a diet change really easy. Don’t leave it to chance or for you to make a healthy decision in t moment- that never works! This process does work.

A client reached out to me the other day.
She said, “my family just does not support my new way of eating. Making this shift is so hard sometimes I don’t know why I am doing it.”
I told her the only support she really needs is her own!
The people in your life probably won't support you making a change at first.
They only know the old you, not the new you!
But you know the new you, you believe in that person and your ability to become that person... And that is what’s really important.
I asked her “what else can you feel in those moments when you see your family not support your new diet?"
How about pride in yourself for making the change that most will never dare to do?
What about self-love because you are doing something awesome for yourself?
What about gratitude for your family that loves you?
Those are all feelings to try on when you are feeling the challenge, when you are feeling down.
You can do this!
I am so proud of you for just getting started.
Good things don’t come easy...
I was sweating my butt off at the gym today, kind of regretting being there, when this thought hit me.
If I want to feel the way I want to feel this summer, I’m probably going to have to go through it. Feel discomfort. Sweat. Skip dessert.
This goes for saving money, getting more free time each week, committing to meal prepping.
The work you put in upfront might not be easy.
You might even need to invest money upfront to get these things...
But if the result is worth it, then the “hard part” isn’t so bad.
I challenge you to do the hard thing today- invest in yourself, sweat, go through the pain.
It’s worth it on the other side.
Join the meal prep course and you will definitely give yourself the gift of time and money on the other side!
