To Snack Or Not To Snack…

By: Adam McCabe
The most exciting news I heard coming into the New Year from Fresh ‘N Fit was the introduction of their snack packs and dessert boxes.  I have tried many of different meal plans (thankfully finding and loving Fresh ‘N Fit), but never had I tried a snack pack or dessert box.

A major health and nutritional struggle of mine has always been snacking. In fact, this is one of the largest issues individuals have when attempting a new diet, trying to lose weight, or just trying to live a normal healthy life. With the access to so many (and unhealthy) snacks, snacking becomes a vehicle into bad nutritional decision-making. Whether this comes from choosing bad snacks, or choosing to over snack, snacking can de the downfall of an individuals diet. We must remember to constantly be making good choices of what, when, and how much we snack.

What I loved about my Fresh ‘N Fit snack packs was the variety and the portion sizes. Below is a list of the snack pack I received with my meals this Monday.

Snack Pack week of Sunday, March 26, 2017:

  • Coconut Chocolate Macaroons
  • Paleo Granola
  • Spiced Chia Roasted Nuts
  • Pizza Muffins
  • Chocolate Paleo Bar
  • Cranberry Date Paleo Bar
  • Chocolate Almond Banana Chip Mix
  • Almond Butter Apricot Bites
  • Olive Tapenade with Veggies
  • Pesto Chicken Salad

Each snack was served in its own container and was labeled accordingly. I chose the paleo snack pack option, as it fits in with my current diet regimen. Fresh ‘N Fit offers two types of snack packs, paleo and healthy mix. Why the snack pack work great for me, is that it controls my urge to over snack. I often make healthy snacking choices, yet I continue to snack due to boredom or to pass time. I do not allow myself the chance to fully digest before I am in the process of over snacking. With the Fresh ‘N Fit paleo snack pack, I have the ability to know that eating one full snack pack item should be sufficient as my one morning or afternoon snack. This has greatly helped my issues of over snacking in my diet. Furthermore, the paleo snack pack comes with such a wide variety of different options, I am never bored with the snacks I have at hand. I also always feel comfortable (and never guilty) about snacking, since the items I am choosing to snack on are consistent to my diet plan and portions.

Like the majority of individuals out there, I love to wind down a night with something sweet to help finish off my day. I definitely have a “sweet tooth” and have constantly struggled with finding a healthy option for dessert. I often find myself eating the most convenient dessert possible and sacrificing my diet for my sweet tooth. I was the most excited to hear Fresh N Fit was coming out with a dessert line, for the fact that I knew their dessert options would help curb my portion control issues and give me a healthy balanced choice of dessert options.

I cannot even begin to express how satisfied I have been with the taste, quality, freshness, and portion sizes of the dessert boxes. I do not think I will ever be able to cut a small dessert out of my diet, but Fresh ‘N Fit makes me feel much less guilty with their fantastic plates. Below is the list of the dessert box I received this week:

Dessert Box week of Sunday, March 26, 2017:

  • Peach Cobbler
  • Pumpkin Spice Cake
  • Apple Crusted Pie
  • Pecan Bar
  • Raisin White Chocolate Chip Cookie
  • Whipped Chocolate Mousse with Fruit

I plan on making sure I have these two latest and greatest additions to Fresh N Fit in my weekly orders. Both the snack pack and dessert box provide healthy, portioned sized options for individuals who need help curbing the snacking or sweet tooth issues. The best part about both new features is how incredibly amazing they taste!

What do 2 of Atlanta’s Most Popular Radio Personalities Have In Common?

cassie-kristen
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 meals.
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.

The 5 Results and Benefits That I Gained From Whole 30

my-whole30results-300x300I previously shared that this was my third time following the Whole 30 program – in a raw nutshell it’s a nutrition program that you follow for 30 days to ‘reset’ your body and let it heal and recover from the effects certain foods may be causing.  The only way to really know how certain foods impact you is to eliminate the groups that can have a negative impact on health and fitness.  Essentially, this meant for 30 days earlier this year, I had no sugar of any kind, no grains, no legumes, no dairy, and no alcohol.

My third time on this program was a charm.  Literally, I wasn’t counting down the days and wondering if I would make it to the end.  I knew I could do it and more importantly I WANTED to do it because the benefits are so worth it.

Result #1 – My Complexion!  I have battled adult acne my entire life.  I didn’t have it as a teenager but once I got to college – boom! And…it has lingered every since.  Since my dad passed in 2014 and my stress level increased my face exploded with breakouts.  I’d tried creams, pills, even dabbing my pimples with toothpaste!  Many doctors have told me it’s caused by my hormones.  Ok great…fix it!  People in the last few weeks (just the ones that feel they can) have been telling me how wonderful my complexion looks and I’ve been thrilled with the results.  Still some scarring but it’s fading and much easier to cover up a few battle scars with some BB Cream.

Result #2 – My Energy!  I’m talking good ol’ organic energy.  I was barely drinking coffee because it’s hard to want it without some Stevia drops – but I did drink tea.  I wouldn’t feel the energy crash at work late afternoon or feel like I had to hop in bed when I got home from work.

Result #3 – Quality Sleep!  This isn’t an area I really struggle with but I can tell you that I slept great and woke refreshed.

Result #4 – Weight Loss!  Since working with my fitness coaches, I really measure my progress by body fat % loss, instead of pounds lost, but I don’t have my start and end percentages for fat loss.  So I give you pound loss.  I lost a total of 6.4 lbs!  That’s a ton for 5’2” me in a month.

Result #5 – No belly bloat!  Particularly when I eat grains and dairy, my belly protrudes.  I’ve noticed as I add some of these foods back (sparingly!) that I can feel and see a difference.

Have you tried a Whole 30 or some type of clean eating program?  Are you considering a short-term metabolism, systemic inflammation ‘reset’?  Do you try limit certain food groups from your diet?

By Elizabeth Miller, HappyHealthyCareGiver.com


At Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine, we try to have something for everyone to enjoy. Our 5 chef prepared menus offer a total of over 300 meals but did you know that 70% of our Paleo menu has dishes that are 30 Day food cleanse approved? Let us worry about what you’re going to eat for the month while all you have to do is focus on the results!
