Nutrition Simplified



We’ve tried them all-- counting macros, no bread, lots of bacon, the cookie diet (WHAT?!)  They worked for a minute, but now the weight is back...times 2!

With all of the fad diets and cleanses out there, what are we supposed to believe in?  

It’s exhausting navigating through all the misconceptions, steps, and restrictions. Not to mention, you still don’t know what to choose when you go out to dinner at your favorite restaurant.  

Let’s simplify this by learning to be conscious of our choices- but not letting nutrition rule your life!  Quick, easy planning that can be sustained to create healthy habits-- that’s the name of our game!

A habit of preparing as much food as possible, in advance, is the key to minimizing your cooking during the week. The idea is to spend one day a week to get the heavy lifting out of the way (most people find Sunday meal prep works best for busy schedules) so during the week you can just assemble your meals and eat.

Then all you have to do it some last-minute prep items the night before, like defrosting meat, chopping delicate greens, washing berries, etc.

This system is as easy as 1...2...3...

To decide what you’ll need to Meal Prep, simply:

1. Clear any junk foods or snacks from your pantry.  (Don’t worry, Shakeology can help curb those junk-food cravings!)

2. Look over your schedule and make a plan. What nights are you going to be home, what nights are you going to need to have something already to go, what nights are you home to cook it then?  Many of my clients have used this meal planning guide that I created to help them sort out the details and make a plan. Print one off each weekend to get yourself set up for the upcoming week. 

3. Take a look at the recipes you’ve chosen for the week and make a list of all the ingredients you'll need included. Check the cupboards to make sure you have what you need, and organize what's left on the list by department in the store so you can get in and get out.  

4. Gather all your ingredients, recipes & start cooking! 

A few Tips and Tricks from the pros:

- Purchase a kit of food storage containers like these on Amazon (we LOVE ours)  - If possible order groceries online or for pick up only using tools like Hyvee Aisle,  Instacart, Clicklist or whatever your local grocer offers. - It's best to shop the perimeter of the store, those things are generally healthier for you since they don't have a long shelf life. - Purchasing pre chopped fruits and veggies saves you time, but it can also cost you nutritional value. The longer something has been away from it's natural state, the lower the nutritional value.   - Creating a nutrition plan that works for the long term is key to your long term success!
