Kiki is a NASM certified personal trainer and fitness nutritionist with a passion for helping people achieve their health and fitness goals. In this blog post, she’s sharing her tips and advice on how to meal prep with ICON Meals, so you can simplify your life and eat cleaner without spending hours in the kitchen.
Hey, ICON Meals fam! I'm about to give you the 411 on meal prepping. If you're anything like me, you know how hectic life can get. Between work, workouts, and everything else life throws our way, who has the time to cook every meal? But before you reach for that questionable take-out menu, let me introduce you to the magic of meal prepping – the Kiki way!
Why Bother with Meal Prepping?
The simple answer? Because meal prepping is your ticket to simplifying your life. Not only does it save precious time and coins, but it's also a goldmine for anyone trying to eat cleaner. Even though I live this life day in and day out doesn’t mean I don’t need help or assistance with my meal prep. ICON meals makes it easy for both myself and my husband to stay on track with our fitness goals. And who's got your back in this culinary adventure? ICON Meals, of course!
