Meal Prep: A Step for Success

We’ve probably all heard the quote attributed to Ben Franklin, “If you fail to plan, you are

planning to fail!”

This is very true, especially when it comes to nutrition. In the last few weeks, we’ve talked about getting our veggies (7-9 servings) and eating our protein (1 deck of cards size serving for women (2 for men) 4-6 times per day). But eating like this takes time, and time for many of us is our biggest barrier to success.

Summer is almost here, and for most of us this means busier schedules between kids activities, pool parties, barbecues, and not to mention, we all have careers to manage. This

time of year makes planning and eating well very difficult for a lot of us.

Try picking a day or two to meal prep. Schedule this like you would your workouts or anything else in your life that is important to you. Pre-cut up your veggies (or buy them pre-cut). Cook your chicken, turkey, organic beef or whatever else you need for dinners and lunches for the next few days. Hard boil up eggs so you can easily grab them for breakfast or a quick snack. If your goals are important to you, plan so you can succeed!

Our friends at HyVee in Brooklyn Park (off of Zane and 610) offer Simple Fix group meal prepping workshops! We are partnering with them for our second round of workshops on June 21 and 22nd in the evening! Please email Shannon Smith at to reserve your space! SPOTS ARE LIMITED! You do not have to be a current Fuse Fitness Coaching client to attend this, so feel free to encourage friends to sign up as well. Stay tuned and watch for more info in your email inbox or on our Facebook page.

Last year, I shared an article from the daily burn with 12 tips to meal planning I thought

was worth sharing again: ideas-healthy- eating/ ideas-healthy- eating/
