The Secret Recipe To Become Healthy

Fad Diets

Training Programs

Diet Pills

And the list goes on…

We live in a world filled with information, or “fluff,” that we don’t know where to begin. More specifically, in the fitness industry, you have all these “gurus” begging you to follow their social media pages, follow their advice, when really, all they have are abs.


My secret to any successful fitness journey? Know your “why” and never lose sight of it. Your “why” is the reason you want to lose 10-15lbs, the reason you want to increase your strength. Your “why” is going to keep you motivated and add more value to your journey than a fad diet, or the latest and greatest training program.

Most recently, I’ve created an online fitness community for moms. Mom’s who not only want to transform physically, but want to use the power of their results to mold into the best role model, or Super-Mom, they deserve to be.

Teaching these women there’s more to life than a strict regimen is key. Sure, the right information matters, but so does the right mindset with a “why.” I mean, is there anything more motivating than having energy for your kids, or making sure you live long enough to run around with your grandchildren?

Your recipe to success:

  • Have a support group you can relate to
  • Find a structure that has your best interest in mind, but more importantly, one you can adhere to
  • Be consistent
  • Remember your “why”

His & Hers Honest Reviews: Pittsburgh Fresh

FTC : Pittsburgh Fresh sent us the meals. We do not get commission from the discount and they did not pay us for this review.

Nutrition is one of the things I’m constantly blogging or talking about it. It is so important to not only you body, but mental health as well. Nutritional deficiencies can lead to mood swings and disease which are both things that we do not want. Many times when we make the commitment of eating healthier or losing weight we can easily get sucked back into our unhealthy habits because of the following:

    • Takes too much time to prepare and cook
    • You hate cooking
    • It doesn’t taste good
    • Too expensive

The good news is that a meal prep company can help you out with that .  Pittsburgh Fresh is a chef created meal delivery service that creates delicious and healthy meals. They even label each meal with their macros. We  placed our order and it was delivered about 4 days later. You can either have it delivered  to your home for six bucks or pick it up from a variety of locations across Pittsburgh.

 

 

We ordered a couple different meals including:

  • Buffalo chicken pasta with mashed potatoes
  • Beef black bean burger served with oven roasted carrots(with mashed potato)
  • Creamy sundried tomato chicken with mustard green(with spinach tomato pasta)
  • Vegan/Vegetarian: Vegan burger with baked carrots




Let’s get right to the review:

 

Creamy sundried tomato chicken with pasta & mustard greens

His perspective

CONS:

  • Could benefit from cooking the chicken a bit longer
  • Container would be better if it were BPA free
  • Could benefit from using more spices

PROS:

  • High quality of chicken and vegetables
  • Nice sized portions
  • Easily able to track your calories or macros throughout day

Her perspective

CONS:
  • Wish there were more vegetarian options
  • Avoid microwaving the food if possible as microwave ovens radiate your food
PROS:
  • Great packaging ! I accidently dropped two containers filled with food and the container did not come open
  • Liked the nutritional info on every container
  • Good quality food
  • Nice selection of meals
  • A lot of food per meal

Overall, we enjoyed our meals. Our absolute favorite was the vegan burger. It had so much flavor and the quinoa was delectable. We were both surprised at how good it tasted! Our second favorite was chicken was the sundried tomato chicken and mustard greens. We will definitely be ordering again. We also wanted to thank Pittsburgh Fresh for sending us the meals and offering our community a discount !
