I love a good meal prep day, but I do everything in my power to fly through it as quickly as possible. I generally enjoy the process, but I’d much rather spend my time with family and friends, especially since my prep day often falls on the weekend. Plus, with the warmer weather on the horizon, I know I don’t want to be trapped in my kitchen prepping food! Tip #6 (continued from this blog…

Meal prep can feel like a super overwhelming and daunting task if it means spending all day in the kitchen. The last thing I want to have happen is my meal prep take over my entire Sunday! That’s supposed to be a relaxing day, right? Or better yet a “Sunday Funday”! All I know is that I do NOT want to waste my weekend cooking and stressing over weekday prep. I’ve had plenty of practice…

Hi, guys! I’m excited to share with you a short video and blog post about some of my favorite frozen vegetables and recipes for how I use them in quick and easy meals. As I mentioned recently, I’m learning more and more about how important it is to include lots of veggies in our diets, so I’m really amping up the quantity (and quality – frozen makes buying organic really affordable) of veggies in my…

Hi, friends! Happy Saturday! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! I’m so glad to be home, but I woke up to slim pickings for breakfast this morning. Our kitchen was practically empty! I ended up eating leftovers from a “freezer” dinner (ground turkey + chopped spinach with garlic) the night before and a rice cake with almond butter. I also added some fermented marinated carrots from Farmhouse Culture. Not too shabby! After breakfast, we…

Oh, 2017 has been a YEAR. With the way it started, I wasn’t sure I’d actually make it out alive and in one piece. But, I took life day-by-day and managed to survive the roller-coaster ride of running – not one – but two start-up companies with my usual full-time job “on the side.” (Mug from Kerrie at the start of 2017.) Prior to the start of 2017, Kerrie and I had about 30 nutrition…

I’m keeping it real with you guys this morning. I run a macro plan business, but, man, there are just some weeks that I’m not in the mood to meal prep at all. Sometimes I’ve had a busy weekend and just don’t have the energy. Other times, I’m just not super motivated to spend a couple of hours in the kitchen, especially when I have the option of enjoying “Sunday Funday” relaxing with my family…

Let’s talk about breakfast this morning. Some say it’s the most important meal of the day, and I personally think it sets the tone for your entire morning and beyond, so I always make it a point to eat a nutritious one. I mean, if I eat a crappy breakfast, there’s a good chance the rest of my food (and even exercise) choices will follow suit. For me, a healthy breakfast is pretty much a…

Hi, friends! Happy almost Friday to you! I was planning to share this blog post tomorrow, but I never finished my post for today (because the $40 internet on the plane was so terrible), so I decided to publish it a little early. I thought this round-up would be a great way to share some of the fun things from my week so far, so here are 5 for (almost) Friday! 1. I just had…

Hi, guys! Happy Hump Day! 🙂 So, yesterday, when my alarm clock went off at 5:01 AM, I was not ready to start the day. Oh my gosh, it was the last thing I wanted to do. It was gray and rainy outside, and I was soooo comfy in my bed, but, of course, I had a full day planned. Up and at ’em! The first stop of my day: Starbucks. I might have been their…

Hi, guys! Happy, happy, happy Friday to you! Any fun plans for the weekend? We have a birthday party on Saturday and a beach day planned for Sunday, so I’m very much looking forward to it! 🙂 So, I had a lot on my agenda yesterday, so I was up and at ’em with the sun. I woke up, showered (ugh, nightsweats – I hope we can figure out my wacky hormone stuff sooner than…

Hi, guys! I receive a lot of questions from CNC readers about Designed to Fit Nutrition, a custom meal plan business that I started with my friend Kerrie a little over a year ago. It’s been a whirlwind experience so far, and, HOLY COW, do we have some exciting stuff on the agenda in the coming months. I can’t wait to share all of the awesome news with you guys! In the meantime, I wanted to…

Hi, guys! After my trip to New York last week, I came home to a house with practically no food in it. I mean, ya, we had food, but not our usual favorites and not very much fresh food. Let’s just say it was slim pickings! We actually had a great dialog in our DTFN Client Facebook group the other day about favorite pantry and freezer staples, so I thought my meal choices for the…

Good morning! I hope your week is off to a wonderful start! Since it’s Tuesday, it’s time for another edition of Monday In Meals where I share what I ate throughout the day on Monday. I love sharing my eats, especially at the beginning of the week, because it’s motivation for me to stay on track and it often sets the tone for the days following. With that, here’s a recap of my meals and…
