For the next few weeks, we wanted to get back to basics by breaking down each of our menus to show what they have to offer as well as their nutritional targets.
First up is one of our customers’ favorite: the Healthy Mix menu. This is our most traditional menu with a wide variety of local and regionally sourced lean meats, seafood and produce. This nutritionally balanced menu is pork free but with our a la carte options, you can add any meal of your choosing to your plan. Healthy Mix also can be ordered with “No Beef“ or “No Seafood“ meals. Don’t care for either of those? Then choose our “No Beef AND No Seafood“ option!
Our Healthy Mix meals are low in sodium, cholesterol and fat.
Our Registered Dietitian balances the nutritional content of the meals by the week. This allows us to offer you some of your favorite meals that may be slightly higher in sodium, like the Grilled Cheese Panini with Tomato Soup and the Shrimp with organic Red Mule Farms grits, while keeping the weekly nutrition numbers in line with our targets.
You’ll discover that eating healthy doesn’t mean boring or that you have to deprive yourself of the comfort foods that you love. Our dietitian does all of the nutritional number crunching for you so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy our gourmet meals.
Healthy Mix’s nutritional targets for sodium for our 1,200 calorie plan (3 meals a day) is less than 1500mg per day. While the targets for our 1,800 calorie plan (3 meals a day) is less than 2,000 mg per day.
If you want to go even lower in sodium, try using our Custom menu option. This allows you to choose the meals with the lowest sodium to build your own personal menu.
By meeting the healthy eating guidelines of the American Diabetes Association, the American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society, this menu is perfect for individuals who want to lose weight, maintain weight and are concerned with eating healthy. Individuals with hypertension, cardiovascular disease and diabetes generally do well on this plan.
You look in the mirror and wonder to yourself: How did I let myself go this far?
Whether you are brand new to fitness, or you’ve simply fallen out of shape recently, here is the quick beginner’s guide to get you back on track quickly. Change your in-front-of-the-mirror thought bubble to: Wow, I’m looking amazing!
by reading on and taking the action steps below.
Start with Motivation
Why do you want to get fit again? There must be a reason that you desire to change your body at this time in your life. Think about it until you have a very clear, very specific reason. There is no wrong answer here. We all have our own personal motivators for wanting to achieve our best selves. What’s ultimately important is that your reason is specific and powerful to you. Once you’ve determined what your motivation is, write it down where you can see it every day. Think about it. Focus on it. Don’t ever let go of it.
Work on Education
You need to eat right and workout smart in order to quickly achieve your goal body. Do you know how to do this? Are you sure? While there is more information on fitness available to us today than ever before, all of the information noise often gets in the way more than it helps. Don’t expect to know exactly how to get into shape by yourself. A successful body transformation plan should be made by a fitness professional, like myself. I’ll take your personal information into account and will answer any and all questions to ensure your success.
Seek out Support
It’s time to have an honest and vulnerable conversation with the people in your life who matter the most. Let them know how far you’ve let yourself go. Let them know what your goal is. Let them know why this matters so much to you. Your success rate depends heavily on the support system that you build around yourself as you begin to implement healthy lifestyle changes. It’s very possible that you’ll find one or more people in your life who are threatened by your desire to improve your body. While this can be upsetting, try to approach it with understanding. The best scenario would be them joining you.

Anyone who has experienced the joys of Atlanta’s morning commute has most likely listened to either of radio’s most popular morning shows…Q100’s The Bert Show
and 94.9 The Bull’s Caffeinated Radio with Jason and Kristen
. Because of their different musical formats, one might think that the 2 shows wouldn’t have that much in common with each other. While that might be true to some extent, the biggest similarity is Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine’s
Why are The Bert Show’s Cassie Young and Caffeinated’s Kristen Gates eating our meals? Because they work! Cassie and Kristen are always on the go, so finding time to eat nutritionally balanced meals, much less prepare them, has always been a big problem for them. That’s where Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine comes in!

option, which allows them to choose their favorites from each of our 5 menus. Our chef-prepared meals are a perfect fit for their busy lifestyle and can be for yours too! So whether you need a meal plan
