My fingers are struggling to keep up with my mind as I share today's blog post. This post has been a dream of mine for over three years and to see this idea finally take shape is very exciting.
When I first became a health coach, I knew that I wanted to create and launch products that would not only be useful, but also help my clients create a solid foundation to grow from. As a recovering product and paper junkie, I knew that whatever I created had to simple to use, sustainable, and beautifully designed. In late February, I was able to finalize a few of the missing details and now I am excited to announce the official launch of my:
MEAL PREP KIT IN A BOX
We spend a large part of our day thinking about what to eat for breakfast, pack for lunch, and make for dinner is something that happens daily. It's on repeat in the back of our minds constantly, and for most, it's a point of contention when trying to determine everyone likes/dislikes, what's on sale, the ease of a new recipe, questioning if you have time to make said recipe and the list goes on.
WHAT IF MEAL PREP DIDN'T HAVE TO BE AS COMPLICATED?
Five years ago, when we transitioned our lifestyle from processed foods, delivery, and take out we were lost on how to make healthy choices that didn't break the bank or have us spending hours in the kitchen every night. It took several attempts of trial and error to find a method that was quick, easy, and sustainable. Thankfully, once we began Sunday Meal Prep Sessions, we haven't looked back AND our waistline and bank account thanked us.
Now, we are sharing our system with you and let me tell you... it isn't rocket science. In fact, it is pretty basic, but most allow overwhelm to set in instead of giving weekly meal prep a try.
So, who are we: We are a couple who struggled with our weight throughout our entire marriage. At one point our combined weight would tip the scales at over 500 pounds. Our meals would rival any holiday spread from massive side dishes to several homemade desserts a week. It was no surprise that the pounds would pack on. It wasn't until I [Amanda], had a meltdown on the floor of our walk-in closet that the reality of our lifestyle slapped us in the face. Yet, we would yo-yo diet and attempt to "start Monday" several times a month, but failed to ever start. Thankfully, with Patrick's support I reached out for help and transitioned our diet to a clean eating style. Limited processed foods were included on this plan and the weight fell off. From there we transitioned to a paleo based lifestyle and have stuck closely to this way of eating ever since.
Together, we've learned to eat in a way that fuels our bodies, but also provides so much flavor and fun into our meals. We refuse to eat boring food or endless of amounts of chicken and broccoli. We have truly created a lifestyle that is sustainable and hope to help you do the same!

- a quick guide to help you get started
