Finding a Healthy Balance With Fresh ‘N Fit
By: Adam McCabe
I am halfway through the NPSL season with the Georgia Revolution and I could not be happier with how things are going. I am performing well and the team is right in the mix for making the playoffs this summer. Furthermore, I personally feel great and have really leaned out during the season.
With the season being a long 5 plus months long, and my schedule being pretty hectic with practices, matches, and community events, I really need a constant in my life when it comes to my food and diet.
Thankfully, I have Fresh ‘N Fit meals to provide me with that healthy balance throughout my life.
The toughest challenge I face while playing for the Georgia Revolution is the fact that three times a week I have to travel down to McDonough, Georgia for practice. While it is only a mere 40 minutes away (on a good day with little traffic), I still spend a total of 4 hours on practice days committing to traveling to practice, practicing, and then traveling home. Practices begin at 7:30 and last till around 9 to 9:30. Then I have to make the 40 minute drive home.
The last thing I want to worry about or do after a long day and soccer practice is cooking a meal. By the time I get back into Atlanta, most restaurants or healthy eating establishments are closed. However, with my paleo Fresh ‘N Fit meals, as soon as I return home I can pop one in the oven while I shower and within 20 minutes of getting home, I am eating a healthy meal.
For me, the most important asset of Fresh ‘N Fit meals is the ease of making the meals and how much time it saves me during my busy schedule.
I am not sure how I would be able to eat properly and with such ease without Fresh ‘N Fit. Thankfully these meals enable me to continue playing the game I love, while having a stress free life and helping me perform at an ultimate level.
In terms of performing consistently at a high level (within your sport), feeling active and healthy overall, or those who are looking to lose weight, the key is to have a consistent, healthy diet. As the saying goes, “it is 80% diet and 20% exercise.” Whatever your goal is, Fresh ‘N Fit meals will provide the necessary platform to help you surpass and achieve these feats. I am able to perform on a consistently high basis while playing for the Georgia Revolution because I have a great foundation with my diet. My body and mind are in the correct space to perform, due to the healthy foods I eat and fuel my body with daily.
