A common concern when transitioning to healthy eating is the cost. Coming to terms with a higher price point for groceries can be extremely daunting, even if you aren’t trying to feed a small army. As with anything, the process of changing your habits around spending and food is based on your own particular struggles, but many have asked for some tips, so over my next couple of blogs, I will share some things that have worked for me at some point during the last 7-years. I don’t use all these tools at all times, and certainly didn’t implement them all at once. The process was gradual, and I change it based on my needs for the time in my life.

Every year the Open creates an incredible growth and learning opportunity for all of our members. That's a large reason we love it. It allows you to try something you haven't tried before, to push yourself outside of your comfort zone, and to be surrounded by an incredible network of community throughout each Open week. While all of us as coaches have done the Open before and it is not our "first rodeo", what you may not know is we too are human and struggle with many of the "nervous fears" each of you do.
It's Monday and more than likely you are slightly more motivated today than you will be any other day of the week. On Mondays people are more likely to hit the gym, make lists, eat better, push harder, and generally just go for it a little more. Honestly, I love Mondays. I wake up ready to take the world on and I am going to push as hard as I can to be the best I possibly can at everything I do.
It's meal prep day, and we wanted to share with you what was on the menu. I'll admit, I am TERRIBLE at following recipes, and even if I do follow a recipe, you can ask Shane or Adda, I typically am changing things, not measuring, and adding my "spin" on it. But, what I've done is found some similar recipes to what we made, in case you need some inspiration going into your week. Have fun with meal prep. Try new things. Sometimes mine work, and sometimes they don't, but I am always up for trying new flavors, combinations, and seeing what happens!
