If you want to be successful in any aspect of life, you have to plan ahead — and that is absolutely true when it comes to food and healthy eating. I'm a busy woman — I founded my activewear line 25 years ago and continue to expand the business today. I find that organizing my fridge is as important to my routine as brushing my teeth. It helps me start each and every week on a healthy note. When you’re organized and prepared, it’s a lot easier to make the best possible food choices that will give you optimum energy and leave you feeling amazing.
On Sunday mornings, I make a trip to my local farmers market to collect the best in-season fruits and vegetables, and then visit our local butcher and fish shop for quality protein. When I get home, I plan and prepare foods for the week ahead based on the ingredients I have found.
I put a few hours aside every Sunday to plan my meals for the week. This usually involves making a big batch of soup and protein balls, whipping up a few of my favorite dips for snacks, and popping my favorite smoothie ingredients into zipper bags, then into the freezer, so breakfast is ready to blend at a moment’s notice. Here is how I stock my fridge for a week of healthy eats!
