Meal Prepping and Weight Loss

 

Happy Monday Everyone!

It’s Courtney and I’ve decided that with the countdown to the holidays starting up, I’m going to get a head start on the usual New Years Resolution; losing some weight! A big part of losing weight is what you eat, right? Luckily, we’ve got Seasonest, which can make even healthy food taste fun, so I’ve decided to do a few things to get this ball rolling!

This past week my sister, Cori and I kicked off our goal with some fun meal prepping! We cooked all of our meals for the week ahead of time and it made life so much easier. Meal prepping really helps curb snacking and reflex eating- you know you’ve got something healthy waiting at home. Here’s a breakdown of what we ate this past week:

Lunch 1:
Baked ziti with Seasonest Italian and Soul Food Blends
Stir fried okra, peppers and onions
Ginger snap cookies

This weeks’ foods were a good start for us, but this is just the beginning. Alongside our meal prepping, we’ll be tracking our weight loss and trying to get to the gym at least 4 times a week. Please send all your encouragement along! :) We’ll keep you updated on our weekly progress.

If you’d like to join us, please let us know and share your own progress with us, what your favorite Seasonest recipes are and what you’d like to see made into “healthy” meals. Make sure to share your story or pics – we’d love to see them and be encouraged in our own goal!

We’re excited to start this journey to being healthier and hope you’ll join in.
