I’m a busy gal. I’m not going to lie, most days I STRUGGLE with balancing everything on my plate. I’d do anything to lift off the weight and relieve some of the stress I experience on a daily basis.
My schedule looks a lot like this:
- 6:30 am wakeup
- 7:00 am – 2:30 pm school
- 4:45 pm – 6:00 pm field hockey
- 8:00 pm – 10:30 pm homework
- 11:00 pm bedtime
As you know, I love to cook (definitely an understatement!) but when I get home from a full day of events *exhausted*, the last thing I want to do is make a full meal. I prefer to spend the few hours I have to spare on myself! I love to do a little flow through in the morning, before school, and in the afternoons, I allot some time to relax, because you’re body needs its rest!
With such limited flexibility in my schedule, it’s tough to cook myself meals as meal times come around. Lunch and dinner are usually a scramble, because it’s tough to whip up foods that are nourishing and fast while I’m hangry! That’s why I tried out Catered Fit, a meal prep company that delivers meals right to your door!
Why Catered Fit?
Of all the meal prep companies out there, Catered Fit is particularly alluring because it allows YOU to be in control of your meals! They provide a wide range of nutritious options and meal sizes, so you won’t be starving yourself or doing any major restriction. This meal prep is sustainable, it’s not meant to be a diet, but rather a supplement that takes a little weight off your schedule.
How Does It Work?
I tried the 5-day meal plan. I went on their website and chose a meal plan that suited my diet (I switched between meatless/paleo), then specified my allergies/intolerances (I did dairy/gluten free). They created a custom menu for me that fit my needs, and gave me the option of different portion sizes to choose from to properly fuel my activities (I did the athlete portion)! Everyday at around 4:00pm, a delivery man came to my door and left my meals in a reusable bag with ice packs, so it wouldn’t spoil if I wasn’t home. Each of the meals were labeled with all of their macros, nutrition information, and ingredients, so I could see exactly what I was putting in my body, and make sure I was eating a good balance of food groups.
What Impact Did It Have On My Day?
Catered Fit was AMAZING! It was so convenient, and it sped up my day significantly. To be perfectly honest, food is always on my mind. I’m always trying to analyze how I feel and determine what I want for my next meal, and THEN I have to cook it, so yeah it’s safe to say a few hours are dedicated to food alone. With Catered Fit, I made all those decisions ahead of time, and all I had to do was eat it when I became hungry! My day transformed completely, because when I got home, I was able to eat immediately and get a major kickstart on my homework, which saved crazy amounts of time…and ultimately allowed me to get more sleep (and who doesn’t want that??).
Catered Fit is more than just a meal prep company, it’s a lifestyle fix. It helped ease my day and allowed me to spend more time being productive, rather than dilly-dallying on meal prospects! It’s definitely worth the extra $$ to have meals prepared and delivered to your door. At the end of my plan, I felt better rested, less stressed, and healthier. It was a treat for myself, and maybe it doesn’t have to be every week, but it feels good to have a break every once in a while.
