Pivotal Fitness Greenville gym advises that you never go into battle unprepared. That’s why you should make it a habit to restock on your key supplements and meal prep for the week.

We all know the week ahead gets busy and hectic. There is always room for unforeseen obstacles. To avoid falling off the health kick, you must establish and prepare your meals. That way, you can rest easy knowing that all of your food and fuel is taken care of and ready for your enjoyment. You will have everything set in place, giving you the ability to resist the urge to slip into unhealthy eating patterns during the week.

The early stages of massive meal prep conveniently happens for most people on Sunday evenings. If you prefer another night to slice, bake, grill, bag, puree, and steam away, by all means, use that day for your meal prepping extravaganza.

Here’s a sampling of good foods to get all stocked up on for your prepping and week. (To get hooked up with a meal plan that uniquely suites you, seek the nutritional guidance and expertise of those at the Pivotal Fitness Greenville health club.)

Go to town with your protein purchases. Get stocked up on chicken, fish, cage free organic eggs, lean ground beef, cottage cheese, and bacon. Purchase lots of low sugar fruits (lemons, limes, raspberries, blackberries, cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, etc.) for green smoothies. Throw in some tomatoes, avocados, and sweet potatoes into your cart for additional carb sources. Don’t go easy on the veggies and legumes. Buy lentils (red, beluga, etc.), beans (black, kidney, etc.), and plenty of greens. Avoid snack foods. (If you must, delight in some almond butter if you know you won’t be tempted to consume more than 1 spoon full per day.)

As a general rule, stick to buying lean and organic meats, legumes, and greens. Steer clear of all snacks. Stay away from high carb foods. Purchase fruit mindfully. Fruit is a nature’s dessert, so there’s no need to buy/consume lots of it.  

Once you get all of your food transported home, get crackin’. Steam up your veggies. Cook up enough lentils or beans for the week. Freeze your fruit for green smoothies. Cook up your meat. Store it all safely in your fridge for your return.
