2017 has been a great and exciting year for Fresh ‘N Fit. It began with us launching a new and improved website and several new offerings like our house made protein barshealthy mix and paleo snack packs and low calorie desserts. And because you asked for it, we added a text reminder service so forgetting to place your weekly orders would be a thing of the past.

We’re happy to announce something that we’ve been working on for some time now…and that’s regular weekly updates to our menus.

That’s right. Beginning the week of August 14th, you will see new items added to each of our menus every week. If you thought we had a wide variety of meals before, then you haven’t see anything yet!
At Fresh ‘N Fit, we believe that convenience is one of the factors that separate us from the competition. With more than 120 pickup locations around Atlanta, as well as home and office delivery, it’s never been easier to eat healthy.

So in order to accommodate your busy schedule,we have extended our weekly order cutoff time to 5PM every Thursday!

That’s right…you now have an extra hour to get your orders placed to have service for the following week. If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Customer Service.
And finally, if you were ever curious about what some of our meals look like, we have added a Gallery page on our website. You’ll now be able to view by menu type what many of our meals will look like on your plate. Enjoy!

3 Essential Snacking Tips

DSC_0141 (1)
A big part of eating for fat loss is keeping your metabolism going all day long with small, sensible meals and snacks. In theory, this is simple and easy: eat a little something every 2-3 hours throughout the day. Unfortunately very few people do it right, resulting in frustrating weight gain. The content of your snacks and small meals is of utmost importance. If you’re eating the wrong thing every 2-3 hours then it’s easy to gain weight quickly, rather than what you want, which is to drop fat and clothes sizes. Let’s jump into the 3 Essential Snacking Tips that I have for you today to keep you on track and burning fat all day long…

Snacking Tip #1: Watch out for added sugar

Sugar is the biggest problem when it comes to fattening snacks, and so this needs to be the number one nutrient that you check. Your frequent snacks should contain very little, or zero, added sugars.
This is a pet peeve that I have: many ‘health’ foods have massive amounts of added sugars, which will destroy your results. Items like protein bars, jerky, dried fruit, green juice, and trail mix often have added sugars and preservatives that you need to watch out for and avoid.
Your snacks should have little to zero added sugars, and should be a nice blend of protein, fiber and complex carbohydrates.

Snacking Tip #2: Check the serving size

When your snack comes in a package, after you make sure that it isn’t filled with sugar, check the serving size. It’s a popular technique for food manufacturers to give the nutritional facts for 2 or even 2.5 servings, on an item that you will likely polish off the entire package.
If the servings are more than just one then you’ll need to do some quick math. Calculate the total calories, sugar, carbs, fat and protein. Make sure that the numbers line up with your target nutrition sums. Always be aware of how many servings you are eating in a single sitting. Do the math if you’re eating more than one serving – be honest with yourself!

Snacking Tip #3: Homemade and made-in-nature are best

As convenient as packaged health snacks are, you will always see better results by eating whole foods found in nature, or snacks that you’ve made at home with real food ingredients. Even the healthiest packaged protein bar from the store is going to contain preservatives and additives that are completely avoided in homemade foods.

A handful of raw nuts, a piece of fruit with fresh nut butter, a hard boiled egg, a homemade fitness muffin (recipe below), some chicken breast on veggies or chopped flank steak on a salad are all better options than any packaged snack.

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!

The Most Wonderful Time of The (New) Year!

rebecca-w0117
How do you end 2016? Did you hit any or all of your health and fitness goals? We hope you did and on that note, we would like to share another inspirational story from one of our favorite Atlanta crossfitters, Rebecca Walburn“After starting Fresh ‘N Fit in the last quarter of 2016, we’ve had Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year celebrations. I’ve traveled coast to coast for work. I’ve had road trips to visit family as well as long term house guests staying in our house. We even had a few germs run through the house. It has been chaotic, to say the least.”

“It might be the most wonderful time of the year but it is also one of the most stressful.”

“Despite the overbooked season, I am happy to say that both my weight and body fat are both down! I haven’t been starving, I haven’t deprived myself of my favorites. I’ve mostly stayed with my meal plan and lost weight and body fat over the holiday season while still eating pumpkin pie with whip cream, birthday cake, and sugar cookies I decorated with my kids.

“Having the consistency of the meal plan kept me on track and I’m much closer to my goals because of it.”

“Sure, I could have dropped more weight and fat had I skipped those seasonal foods, but being able to enjoy those moments without any guilt is an amazing feeling. Plus, losing weight and decreasing body fat is not something that usually happens around the holiday season. I’m THRILLED I can still savor the moments with my family without feeling deprived and yet I’m still closer to my goals. I have no doubt the foundational nutrition from Fresh ‘N Fit helped this become a reality.  If you haven’t tried Fresh ‘N Fit, give it a few weeks and see how it can help you as well.”
