Let me be clear – eating healthy is not my thing. And I’m fairly confident it never will be. At least not fully. My life is super fast-paced and I am a fan of indulgence.
I recently tried out Eatfitters, a store (with a few locations)/program located here in Houston that prepares healthy meals for you to keep you on track.
I tried the Go3 plan, which included a consultation with a nutritionist (perfect to tell her I don’t like basil, what my day-to-day looks like, and my weaknesses – i.e. sweets), and meals (including snacks!) for three days. It’s the most my fridge has been stocked in months.
I was pleasantly surprised by most of the meals as I’m a pretty picky eater (my favorites are listed below).
What I loved most about having a 3-day plan with Eatfitters was that it saved time trying to figure out what you’re going to eat for lunch or dinner every night. It seems every night I battle with what to cook or where to eat. It also helped me avoid giving into those last minute temptations and cravings, like a juicy burger from Barnabys or white-sauce pizza. Knowing I had food that was already in my refrigerator ready-to-eat made it so much easier to stick to healthy eating.
Some of my favorite menu items included:
- Strawberry Pancakes (it came with honey, but I cheated and added some sugar-free syrup)
- Turkey Stroganoff
- Salmon Piccata (my absolute favorite!)
- Turkey Spinach Lasagna
- Cheesecake Bars
- Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins (these were amazing, I’d eat them anytime!)
Pro-tip: they keep a cooler on the right with meals that are about to expire (they are still good, I promise!) and are 50% off. If you want to swing by and try a few things for lunch or dinner that day, it’s a great way to get a healthy meal at a great cost.
