What most people don’t know about me is that I’m basically lazy. I am a Yoga Instructor, Fitness Trainer and Massage Therapist but when I’m not working I really, really like to do a lot of nothing. I try to eat right but even filling out my diary on My Fitness Pal takes more time than I really want to spend. So you can understand that when I see friends posting photos of their Sunday food prep – it just makes me feel tired. And usually the food prep is the same meal every day of the week. That’s a whole lot of work to eat right, Right?
But I found the PERFECT solution! I have a friend who makes meals! Miranda Loehle cooks and packages lunches and snacks for friends who want to eat healthy and/or are busy and don’t have time to cook for themselves.
Here’s what she brought me this week. Five lunches and snacks that are prepackaged, labeled and measured by macro and by calorie. She delivers them to me at work in this nifty little cooler container and at the end of the week she picks up the bag with the empty plastic containers and brings me a new bag! Awesome huh?

So the question is: How did I do? I had this great food at my fingertips all week. No hassle, no problem. Did I stick to the plan? The Answer is Somewhat. I did really good all week except for on day two. One of my co-workers was going to the nearby Bagel shop and I indulged in a yummy cheese bagel covered in cream cheese.
Having the food in my fridge gave me a healthy option every day. I didn’t have to plan, shop, cook or package my own food. I could just grab a couple of containers out of the fridge and put them in my work bag. It worked great and made my week a whole lot easier!

I wonder what will be in my lunch bag this next week! Happy Eating! – Dawn
