Skip the Tupperware and Try Buffet-Style Meal Prep!

You spent half of your Sunday planning, grocery shopping, cooking and putting food into portioned, little boxes.  Monday goes well.  You enjoy the prepped meal and the clean energy that accompanies the healthy food you prepared at home.  Tuesday isn't bad.  You still have the energy, even if the meal was a bit boring.  Wednesday comes and you can't even bear to take that plastic box out of the frig and put it into your work cooler.  At lunch, everyone else's meal smell incredible and you begin to give in to temptation.

Frustrating, isn't it?  If this is you, I have a solution!  I call it Buffet-Style Meal Prep and it also supports different levels of hunger (I'm thinking about that Gator workout), and food for the whole family.  By preparing several different options to choose from each day (and different combinations), you are able to keep things interesting.  You can also increase your protein and fat on intense days like the Open Workout, or Hero WODS.  In addition, it allows everyone in your family to eat meals they enjoy.  This system also works well in a Caveman-Hippie Chick household like mine where I pile on the veggies, and Vic piles on the meat.  We can both make sure to have a balance on our plates, but still, meet our individual nutritional needs.

If you would like to learn how to create a meal plan system that works for your lifestyle and goals, message me or find me in the box.  My 12 Week Meal Prep Course and Challenge begins March 2nd! It's part of The Garden, my online learning community, and the price can't be beat!  For only $25/month, you have access to this class, a community of support, and answers to all your nutrition questions from a source you know and trust, me!
