If you are investing time and money (and let's be real, time IS money) into your workouts, you have to round it out with solid nutrition.  

The cost of groceries is rising, and if we're not organized, some weeks that food will just go to waste anyway.  How many salad greens have you tossed this year at $5 / container? How many times have you said "F*#% it, I'm just ordering in tonight" or grabbed your dinner on the way home because you can't be bother to go grab all the minor ingredients you need to whip up a decent meal?

There are times in our lives when we need to just make the investment in a boost. Balanced, nutritious meals concocted by an expert who knows just how to make the things you both crave AND need. I've been a longtime fan of FitOrganix for the quality AND deliciousness of their meals. This is not paid endorsement, I asked them permission to share about them again because I think there are so many of us who can find this service, but this brand in particular, incredibly useful at times like these.  As you'll see from the food below, it's tasty & healthy food that leaves no room for excess cravings. But even that aside, I adore how personable they are in their business dealings.  You can write to them with your specifics wants and needs, and you will establish a relationship with one of the best helping hands you've received when it comes to your health. 

You can pick up the service for short or long term. I'll definitely be recruiting their help a few times over the course of this year so that I can really remain focused and reap the benefits of being highly fueled. A few weeks in which I save that grocery and cooking time can make a world of difference in what you're able to accomplish. And, my body will thank me. 

Here are some of the meals I indulged in last week, leading to an energy peaked & health conscious weekend:
