WHAT IF MEAL PREP DIDN'T HAVE TO BE AS COMPLICATED?  

 

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.  

READY TO OVERCOME THE OVERWHELM? 

 

The biggest challenge many of my clients face is getting a handle on meal prep.  They think in order to change their relationship to food; countless hours need to spent in the kitchen, endless kitchen gadgets need to be purchased, and strange hard to find ingredients need to be found.  I'm here to tell you that is the further thing from the truth!  

When I was first introduced to clean eating I was a bit overwhelmed, yet amazed at how simple meal prep could be. Then, as I continued my journey into becoming a certified health coach and personal trainer I quickly learned that my clients success would be directly linked to keeping things simple. Overwhelm and time are the two things that often cause people to quit on their dreams; in life, health, and wealth! 

"I knew that creating a meal prep kit would solve several problems from helping one trim their waistline while bulking their bank account, but to also re-discover how amazing whole foods taste."  

 

My three goals for creating the Meal Prep Kit in a box system: 

1 - To eliminate the overwhelm  

I'll hand hold you through the entire process of what is involved with weekly meal prep. You'll have a copy of our exact grocery list, strategies to use for bulk meal prep, and several of our favorite go to meal ideas with recipes. Overwhelm and the kitchen don't mix, if you've seen Hell's Kitchen than you know what I mean. 

2 - Shrink or trim your waistline

If you've stood in the checking lane within the past several years, you know that most magazines claim that ab's are made in the kitchen.  Well, this is rather true.  The foods we eat have the power to help with weight loss, trim our waistlines, and reduce excess body fat.  By opting for weekly meal prep you are ensuring that you will stick to your health and wellness related goals because you meals are fully prepped for you.  There is little to no prep work at meal time unless you prepare a fresh salad or steam fresh vegetables.

3- BULKING YOUR BANK ACCOUNT  

One of the comments I hear often is that it is so expensive to eat healthy and I have to disagree to an extent.  It would be safe to say that the average meal out for two is around $50 - 60 dollars. Take a moment and recall the past week of meals- how many times did you catch yourself opting for a meal on the go, a coffee, or even multiple dinners out.  Creating a solid foundation with weekly meal prep will help to eliminate the excessive coffee runs, meals on the go, and dining out. Plus, when you start to create meals at home you are in the drivers seat of how the food will be prepared and seasoned.  

 

Let's chat about what's included:

Our story about how meal prep changed our lives

 

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!   

Questions and Answers:

Meal Prep Kit in a Box

Q: Who's this for?

A: Literally, ANYONE! It doesn't matter if you are a shift worker, stay at home mom, vegan, or paleo lover. Anyone can benefit from this concept!

Q: What type of meal plan is included?

A: Truthfully, the "meal plan" was created to provide inspiration for creating meals that you will actually enjoy. All of the suggested items have been outlined to keep your waistline in check, but you won't find a required list of proteins, carbs, or fats to buy or eat at a specific time of the day!

Q: What is so great about using a pen and paper journal over an app?
A: Don't get me wrong, electronically documenting your meals and exercise is a great option, HOWEVER, the act of putting pen to paper makes the food + mind + soul connection that much stronger. Those who have the greatest success in transforming their relationship with food credit food journaling as a key to their success.

Q: What is your #LIVEUNBOXED lifestyle all about?

A: When we transitioned to a paleo style of eating - we discovered that all of our foods were/are essentially unboxed. Of course, there are a few exceptions due to packaging, for the most part everything we eat is fresh, minimally packaged, and not coming from a box.

Q: To #LIVEUNBOXED must I follow a paleo lifestyle?
A: Absolutely not! The whole concept and idea for #LIVEUNBOXED is to encourage a diet/lifestyle filled with whole foods rather than those with fancy packaging or celebrity endorsements
