February 2017 Nutrition Bites

Planning and prepping are the keys to success!

When you begin a new personal training and nutrition program, there are a lot of things to think about. It can be overwhelming.

When we try to stick to our new, balanced habits it helps to have some tricks up our sleeve to help us stay on track.

Here are some tricks I employ to simplify my life and help:

P-L-A-N and P-R-E-P

Make most of my weekly protein on Sunday. Of course I have a family that I cook for, so adjust accordingly. At my house I like to be prepared for the week ahead.

The hardest part is done. The rest of the meals can be “built” around the protein.

I prep the protein I made so I can toss things together quickly. In example, I diced up the chicken and slice up the cooked links. If I don’t get to all of the protein I prepped I can freeze quite a bit of it for future use.

Sunday night, I toss together enough little meals, in my unit portions, to get me through my work day for two days. In the morning all I have to do is grab them and I am set for two days at the office! I stay on track and save money. I do this every other night.

These tips and tricks become a balanced habit if you do them enough and just a way of life. I hope they help you too.
