In a lot of marketing regarding nutrition coaching and weight management, it is common to see the terms “tracking macros”, or a focus in general on macronutrients. So as consumers, it can appear that the key to nutrition and ‘being healthy’ is about focusing on the macronutrients in your diet. But, I want you to know that that isn’t necessarily the case, and if we just focus on macro tracking, we are missing a bigggg piece of the health puzzle!

If you’ve been on social media lately, and you’re the kind of person that follows a bunch of food accounts, you may notice that “meal prep” is all the rage. Why? Because it makes your busy life easier and more nutritious. How? Well, instead of constantly turning to takeout options and/or spending every morning, afternoon and night creating a new meal every time you’re hungry, meal prepping provides you with prepared food for the week or for a few days. It also takes away the humming and hawing about what to have for breakfast/lunch/dinner every day which can waste valuable time. Having prepared, healthy food sets you up for success and cuts out the possibility of resorting to poor food options. The photo above is actually a collection of meal prepped foods that I had on hand in the fridge. I was able to make a fresh salad by picking and choosing a few of the prepped options I had, threw them on some arugula. It was delicious and I put it together in about 5 minutes.
