Okay, okay we all talk about how busy life is. And it truly is busy! Between work, our social life, other obligations, plus if you are a parent that business doubles/quadruples, and you have even more on your plate. So seriously how do we find time to workout and eat healthy?
Since I went sugar free in January, I really have come to the realization that it takes TIME to eat healthy. Many people try to make it seem so easy, but let's be honest...it's not. It takes time, and I'm thankful I"m home during the day with my son, working from home, and able to spend time in the kitchen trying and making sugar free recipes. But when you work full time with other obligations after work, seriously how do you have time to eat healthy?
Our society make it so much easier to eat quick, processed, fast foods. So if you are in that boat, I totally get it. (That's one reason why I try to share as many of my SUGAR FREE RECIPES with you as possible, so hopefully you can find time to make them for your family!)
Then you know there are those super productive and disciplined people who have a routine and they weekly meal prep or batch cook. Which is awesome for them. I have a couple of fitness industry friends that are seriously awesome at getting this done, and I am super impressed by them.
BUT, for the rest of us....
What do we do?
How can we make healthy foods for our family when our life is so busy?
Recently I started hosting Freezer Meal Workshops at my house.
And since I didn't come up with the idea, and I brag and just say, this idea is GENIUS!
Seriously, it's so smart! And I have had amazing feedback from the two I have hosted so far. I already have 3 more planned for the end of this month/first of July.
So how do it work?
Basically, people register to attend my workshops by paying a workshop fee.
For the registration fee, they get a full menu (8 meals, which can be turned into 16 meals if you have a family of 2-3), plus the easy-to-read grocery list. Along with this, all utensils are provided, plus all the seasonings and rubs used in the recipes are provided. PLUS! They don't have to do it at their own house! Which means, no dirtying up the house, or adding hours to their meal prep just for cleaning up. They just come, meal prep, and leave. So it takes the hassle out of cleaning!
Then, they leave with 8-16 prepped freezer meals!
It's such a laid back atmosphere. I usually have coffee and a snack, and we just chat while being super productive. It's an amazing use of your time!
Plus, it gives back so much!
When you are able to meal prep for your family like this, then that means you get more time to spend with your family during the week.
Now you know evenings tend to be busy. Kids get home from school, parents get home from work. It's extra-curricular activities, homework, dinner, baths, and bed. Not much time to spend together as a family. So with having these meals already cooking in the crock-pot for dinner, you aren't spending an hour+ making dinner and away from your family. You are able to have that time back with your family, and dinner is just READY!
How awesome is that!
One more awesome thing....the meals are HEALTHY!
I go through all of the recipes and make them as healthy as possible.
Because that's the point isn't it. If we just wanted meals for our family with no concern to the nutrition, then we could run through the McDonald's Drive-thru and shop the Dollar Menu if we needed. What I am offering families is a way to have HEALTHY MEALS prepped for themselves! There is so much more value in that! Remember, we are striving to Leave a Healthy & Active Lifestyle Legacy!
Here's an example of my upcoming menu:
What if I don't eat certain things on the menu?
Seriously, I have so many menus to choose from, and we can totally customize the menus if needed. There have been several people who don't eat shell fish, or pork. When that is the case, we can change the meat or just change the menu items all together!
I want to work with you to make it fit your family's needs.
Isn't it Awesome!
I am seriously loving being able to do this! I really feel like it's a way for me to spread the Leave Your Legacy Lifestyle in person with people. To share with them my passion of helping families make healthy choices!
Plus, I am working with some to host LONG DISTANCE FREEZER MEAL WORKSHOPS!
So, if you are local, obviously you can sign up for an upcoming workshop! If you are long distance but this interests you, then let me know, I can contact you and we can customize a workshop for you and your friends!

Have you ever attended anything like this before?
As a sidenote, along with hosting these Freezer Meal Workshops, I am a consultant for Velata. That is the brand of seasonings/rubs that we use for the workshop. They are all non-GMO, diary, nut, soy free, and totally yummy!
