All of the deliciousness of chocolate covered strawberries, plus muscle building whey protein!
Here are the financial differences between grocery shopping, eating out, and using a meal-kit delivery service.
If you’re like me, you need to eat roughly every 3 hours to avoid getting hangry and becoming an absolute nightmare to be around (that and some form of caffeine throughout the day). You probably also want to eat healthier, more wholesome meals. Your options are making your own meal plan, buying all of your groceries yourself, and large batch prepping your meals in advance to eat throughout the week, going to a restaurant/cafe/diner, or using a meal kit delivery service. Here’s how the three stack up using the following meal (taken from HelloFresh’s website):
Honey Glazed Chicken Teriyaki over Rice with Sugar Snap Peas (2 servings)
12 oz. antibiotic free, free range Chicken Breast
1 cup of basmati rice
6 oz of sugar snap peas
1 thumb of ginger
1 garlic clove
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon of honey
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Grocery Shopping = $14.5
While you have to spend $13.02 to make this meal by getting the ingredients yourself from the grocery store, the advantage is you can buy these ingredients in larger quantities driving the overall cost down. This is a good option if you plan on having this meal several times throughout the week instead of just once. This is what each ingredient costs, having gotten most of the options on sale:
Chicken Breast: $2.25
Sugar Snap Peas $3.36($0.56/oz)
1 lime: $0.40
White Wine Vinegar: $1.49
Soy Sauce: $1.79.
Olive Oil: assume I have this at home.
The benefits of grocery shopping
+ This meal comes out to $13.32 pre-tax (about $14.5 after tax), for both servings ($7.25/serving).
+ You can add/omit ingredients, customizing the recipe however you want and personally selecting each ingredient.
The disadvantages of grocery shopping
+ You wouldn’t just go to the grocery store for this one meal, you would probably go and get everything you need for the week, spending 90 minutes door to door.
+ You have to hope that this grocery store has everything you need for your recipes, otherwise you have to go to more than one grocery store to get what you need.
How to Meal Prep Like A Pro
Eating Out at a Restaurant/Cafe = $38.63
To get this near $39 valuation, I looked at the cost of similar entrees at several restaurants in my area, and by the area where I work. This may or may not be accurate in your area, since I’m basing my results off of NY and Manhattan prices, which are generally pretty high. Here’s how I came to this valuation:
Person 1: $15
Person 2: $15
Tip: $6 (20%)
Tax: $2.63 (tax is 8.75% in NY)
The post-tip and post-tax total is $19.32 per serving.
Benefits of Eating Out
+ Little to no work on your part.
+ Show up, eat, pay, leave.
+ No cooking, no cleaning, no grocery shopping.
Disadvantages of Eating Out
+ More than 2x as expensive as making it yourself.
+ No control over ingredient quality or nutritional content.
+ You do need to commute to the restaurant.
Meal-Kit Delivery Service = $23 (HelloFresh)
The $23 valuation for this option comes directly from HelloFresh’s website, at $11.50/person for one meal for two people. Similar to grocery shopping, the more you buy the more you save with the difference being that you typically don’t have any left over ingredients. Comparable companies like Blue Apron, Plated, and Home Chef cost roughly the same so give or take a few dollars if you use one of them instead of HelloFresh.
Benefits of Meal-Kit Delivery
+ No grocery shopping, saving 90+ minutes not including unpacking and storing ingredients.
+ No food waste.
+ Costs about 40% less than eating out.
Disadvantages of Meal-Kit Delivery
+ Rarely leftovers since the meals are designed for a specific number of servings.
+ You’ll still have to grocery shop for basics since it doesn’t cover breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.
+ Costs more than buying all of the ingredients yourself, assuming you can get most of them on sale and don’t care about eating regionally sourced, typically higher quality ingredients.
In the end…
My opinion has always been this: I love cooking, I don’t mind the process of cooking or clean-up, and I love trying new things. I also always tend to put my finances first though so I rarely ever order food from restaurants or stop to pick-up breakfast or lunch on my way to work. IF I was regularly going out to dinner on weekends, I would probably use a meal-kit delivery service because I look cooking and it would save me 40% of my money. Eating at home and entertaining are also a more fun, intimate experience.
I eat 5-6 meals per day and simply could not afford to only eat out or to only use a meal-kit delivery service, so grocery shopping for staple ingredients in my diet (eggs, yogurt, grains, fruit, meat, vegetables) would still have to be my primary way of stocking my fridge.
Interested in trying a meal delivery kit service? Here’s my experience using HelloFresh
Disclaimer: I work on the HelloFresh social media team now but don’t worry, this post isn’t to tell you why you should choose HelloFresh over their competitors and I’m not being paid to post this. There are no affiliate links and this post isn’t monetized in any way. I’m just posting my experience with my boxes so far, explaining the benefits, and popular concerns.
Meal delivery kits started in 2011 and since then have turned into a tremendous market that many people doubted at first. I’ll admit it, I was a doubter also. In case you’re behind, some of the popular meal delivery kit services include HelloFresh, Blue Apron, Plated, Home Chef, Sun Basket, Marley Spoon and Green Chef. What’s the difference between them all? Different recipes, different styles, different missions. Here are some key things you should know about HelloFresh:
1. They are a meal kit delivery service
Meal kit delivery services like HelloFresh essentially work like this: the company creates recipes that you can make in about 30 minutes. They source all of the ingredients, package the exact amounts needed for the recipe in an refrigerated, insulated box, and ship them (for free) to your home. You unpack your box and cook the recipes yourself.
2. They, like the others, are a subscription service.
This means that whether you get a free box, a promo code, a coupon, or just sign up for a box in general, you are signing up for a subscription service. You can pause up to 8 weeks at a time which means, while HelloFresh is a weekly subscription, you can manually make your subscription bi-weekly, tri-weekly, monthly, or bi-monthly. Again, you have to do this manually for now but it is an option if you want to try the service but can’t commit financially yet.
3. They have a Registered Dietitian on staff.
My degree is in Dietetics so you can imagine why I find this extremely valuable. The recipes are made by a culinary team of chefs with the help and oversight of HelloFresh’s dietitian. What does this mean for you? You have somebody fighting to balance the portions of sodium, fat, carbs, and protein in each recipe. Plus, she creates the nutrition label info so every recipe comes with an ingredient list, nutritional breakdown, and allergen information.
4) The recipes are outstanding and portioned.
Now I haven’t tried any of the other meal kit services’ recipes but I can say this much, the HelloFresh recipes are unbelievable. The menu does change weekly and you’ll probably like some meals more than others, but every week so far there’s been at least one super star meal. Each meal has roughly 5-6 oz of lean protein, a serving of vegetables and a fun twist that I would never think of (orange glazing meatballs?!).
What if I already know how to cook?
If you already know how to cook it’s even better, in my opinion. Look through my recipes and you’ll see that while I’m no professional chef, I know my way around a kitchen. If you already know how to cook then you’ll be able to get through these recipes with ease while also learning new techniques and trying new food combinations (I never would have made things like kiwi salsa otherwise). It’s almost like saying “I already know how to read, why buy books?”.
Isn’t it expensive?
That really depends. You could most likely get the ingredients yourself by going to a grocery store and spending 1-2 hours of your time there. Also, I hate when I want to try a new recipe that calls for 1 tsp. of Thyme which means I have to buy a whole bottle. I wouldn’t/couldn’t use a meal delivery kit to account for 100% of my weekly groceries, but it’s an amazing substitute to eating out, dinner dates, and getting out of the rut of making the same meals all of the time.
Versus going out to eat…
Most meal kit delivery services generally cost around $9.99/meal. HelloFresh meals range from as low as $8.50/meal to $11.50/meal. Compare that with the $20+/meal you’d get at a nice restaurant for very similar meals and meal kits win again! Now, you’re probably thinking “but at least at a restaurant I can sit and be served”. True, but you also pay a premium for that service in both the meal costs and the 20%+ tip. You’ll still wait 30-45 minutes to eat (the approximate cooking time of HelloFresh and their competitor’s recipes) so you essentially have to weigh paying a premium to sit and talk against chopping some vegetables and meat.
HelloFresh packages their recipes in individualize, smaller ventilated boxes. Once I get my box at the door, I open it and remove the individualized recipe kits, and stow them away in my fridge until I’m ready to cook. No sorting, no standing in line, just 15 seconds of unpacking.
You do have to deal with breaking down cardboard, emptying the ice packs (once you’ve saved enough of them for later use), and disposing the very limited plastic though.
I definitely recommend trying a meal kit delivery service and of course, I highly recommend HelloFresh. There are always tons of promotions and coupons so you can your first box super cheap!
Need to burn a little extra belly fat? Here are 10 easy ways to start.
Burning 1 lb. per week essentially boils down to burning an extra 500 calories per day. Whether that means eating 500 fewer calories or stepping up your exercise routine, it’s a lot easier than you think. Try any of these tips to burn 1 extra pound per week:
1. Substitute foods
One of the easiest ways to cut calories is to substitute some of your foods, not cut them out entirely. Swap sour cream with Greek yogurt, mayonnaise with avocados, eggs with egg whites. Of course the portions matter but these healthy alternatives are higher in protein and unsaturated fats, and are lower calorie options.
2. Add a few more minutes of cardio to your plan
Adding a little bit of more cardio to your workout routine every day can help you burn more calories each day, making it easier to hit that 500 calorie deficit.
3. “There is no such thing as snacking”
Try your best to eat in the form of meals. If you prefer to snack throughout the day, turn your plan into 6-7 small meals that you can eat every 2 hours instead of grazing throughout the day.
4. Mind your coffee
Do you always use cream, milk, and/or sugar? Try cutting your sugar and milk portions in half, or drink your coffee black (you get used to it). I’ve seen people put 3-4 packets of sugar in their coffee every day. It’s not an outlandish amount of sugar but that extra 50-60 calories per cup (before milk) can add up, especially if you’re drinking a few cups a day.
5. Watch your high-calorie food
That means anything with a lot of oil, or cooked in oil. Just because something is baked doesn’t mean that the oil all over it doesn’t count. Use olive oil or coconut cooking sprays for extra flavor with less than 1 calorie per 1/4 second spray. Then, use a tsp. of oil or butter if you absolutely need to.
How to Keep Yourself from Binge Eating
6. You booze, you lose
When Mr. OnlyEatsProtein&SaladAllDay or Mrs. Haven’tHadCarbsSince2003 tell me that they can’t lose weight no matter what they do, they usually fail to mention the bottle of wine/day they’re drinking. 1 drink = 100 calories or more. So, if you have several drinks per day and you cut out 3, you’re already down 300 calories per day. Only 200 to go and you didn’t have to do a thing.

Going through your week feeling tired no matter what you do? Try these 5 easy ways to increase energy naturally.
Between caffeine crashes and sugar crashes you may feel like you can barely keep your eyes open anymore, AND IT’S ONLY 4 P.M. Here’s what you can do to increase energy naturally. Even though caffeine is a natural stimulant, we’re going to look at mainly caffeine-free options:
1. Do 20 minutes of cardio every day
Get your heart rate up and blood flow pumping as early in the day as you can. You don’t even need a gym membership. Do a quick 15-20 minute circuit at home, grab a jump rope and do 60 second intervals, or go out for a power walk or jog. Do this 4-5 days per week and you’ll instantly feel more energy throughout the day.

2. Avoid simple sugars during the day
Simple sugars like juice, candy, sorbet, and pancakes are more likely to spike your blood sugar consequently leading to a blood sugar crash that will leave you feeling sluggish for hours. Avoid simple sugars and white breads by replacing them with whole grains, fruit, vegetables, oats and other high-fiber carbohydrates.
What Are The Best Times to Eat Junk Food?
3. Eat more high-fiber, high energy foods
Fiber helps regulate blood sugar and prevent insulin spiking which will help that inevitable sugar crash. High energy (high in healthy fat) foods like nuts will provide a large dose of calories to keep you going without spiking blood sugar. Try eating 1/2 oz. of roasted almonds with breakfast.
4. Eat 4-5 small, balanced meals per day
Providing your body with balanced doses of carbohydrates, protein, fiber, fat, vitamins, water and minerals throughout the day should prevent that mid-day slump associated with the 3 large meals per day diet. It’s like having adequate nutrition on a continuous drip into your bloodstream versus getting large doses in 5 hour intervals.
5. Limit your caffeine intake and space out doses by 5-6 hours
I couldn’t talk about energy without bringing up caffeine, no matter how hard I tried. The half life of caffeine is roughly 5 hours, so I generally try to space out my doses by 5 hours. Drink your first cup of coffee, tea, or energy drink first thing in the morning. Have your next dose about 5 hours later if you need it and try to cut that dose in half and see if that’s enough to spark some energy without keeping you up all night. Nobody said you have to fill your coffee cup to the brim every time.

Save hundreds of dollars on groceries by following these 8 tips
Does your checkout total surprise you every week at the grocery store? Put yourself in control of your financial and physical health by knowing what to buy, how to buy, when to buy and where to buy. Check out these 8 ways to save on groceries:
How Meal Prepping Can Save You Thousands
1. Shop the perimeter
90% of your grocery shopping should be done around the perimeter of the aisles with the exception being for toiletries, paper plates/towels, etc. Reason being, the perimeter is made up of whole foods like yogurt, eggs, meat, cheese, milk, fruits, bread and vegetables. This should make up 90% of your cart every time.
The 80/20 Diet Rule
2. Buy in season
Buy your favorite fruits and vegetables in their prime season. The best way to stay on top of this is to adjust your recipes to match the seasonal harvest.
3. Buy what you can in bulk
For dry foods you may even be able to do this online. If you’re going to eat oatmeal for breakfast most mornings then consider ordering it in bulk or larger than normal quantities to cut costs in the long run.
4. Keep an eye out for surpluses
When I was 15 I used to work at a farmer’s market. I remember one season we had huge, overgrown cauliflower for nearly 1/2 price that grew up to 10-11 lbs. Keep an eye out for a surplus in groceries like eggs, fruits and vegetables that might cut costs down significantly, and then take advantage of those savings. These surpluses can generally save you 25-50% off or more!
5. Buy on sale
Doesn’t get much easier than this. Keep an eye out for good deals on foods you would get regularly. Every aisle generally has sales ranging from 5% to 50% off. If you’re able to buy most of your products on sale, even if it’s only 5%, those savings could add up to several hundred dollars by the end of the year.
6. Go in with a budget in mind
If you know you spend $100/week on groceries, then plan on making that your absolute maximum. Buying on sale, in season and in bulk will help keep your costs under that $100/week limit. Try to cut that number to $95/week and that $5 weekly savings will add up to $260 per year!
7. Hunt for promos/coupons
Using online promo codes or coupons is a tried and true way to save tens of dollars per week on groceries. If you save only $10/week by doing this you’ll save $520 by the end of the year!
8. Join a rewards program
Some, if not most, grocery stores offer rewards programs to incentivize shopping exclusively at their store. Stop & Shop converts shopping “points” to gas savings. I’ve had clients that have saved hundreds of dollars on gas by using rewards points to get $0.1, $.25, or $.50 off each gallon of gas.
I hope you found this helpful and you find creative ways to save money while living healthy and fit!
Tired of running? Try one of these cardio exercises instead.
Don’t get me wrong, running is a great way to get back in shape but it comes at a cost. Running is a high impact activity that over time may cause joint pain. Also, depending on the type of running you do you may find better metabolism-boosting effects with these exercises:
Cardio Acceleration Supersets for Fat Loss
1. Kettlebell Swing
Kettlebell swing intervals are a great way to torch fat while also developing explosive thrusting strength, building the legs, core, and shoulders. Perform 5 sets of 30-60 second intervals with 30-60 seconds rest in between. This form of HIIT training will help you burn fat, build muscle and keep your metabolism boosted for up to 48 hours.
2. Mountain Climbers
Try adding 30-60 second sets of Mountain Climbers in between your lifting sets (instead of taking a break) to pump up your heart rate and burn fat in place of your resting sets. All of the cardio benefits of running without the joint impact.
3. Jumping Jacks
This classic exercise incorporates your core, hip adductors and abductors, calves and shoulders making a great way to warm up vs. jogging for 15-20 minutes. Do a few sets of jumping jacks to warm up your muscles and joints before you turn up the intensity.
Speaking of turning up the intensity…any time the word “burpees” is mentioned in a group exercise class I hear a collective, audible “UGHHHH”. These aren’t for the weak of heart. Burpees are a combination of a push-up and a jump squat. At your own pace, do 5-10 burpees in between your lifting sets or for several intervals for a full-body scorching cardio and resistance workout.
5. TRX Row
Give your legs a break. Build up your back and arm strength with TRX Rows. Perform 5 sets of 25-30 reps in between weight lifting sets or superset them with a lower-body cardio workout for a full-body workout set.
6. Step Ups
Target your quads, glutes, and core by doing knee-level step ups, meaning the platform you step up on should be at your knee or slightly higher to hit your glutes harder.
7. Body Squats
Body Squats can be done any time, anywhere. Build explosive quad strength while you elevate your heart rate and develop better balance and posture. Try doing 5 sets of as many perfect reps as possible in 30 seconds.
8. Stepper Switch Foot
Set up a stepper with 4 risers (2 on each side). Place one foot on top of the stepper and the other foot slightly behind you. In one motion, explode off your back foot switching positions so the foot that was on the stepper is now behind you and the foot that was behind you is now on the stepper. Repeat for 30 seconds as fast as possible.
9. Kettlebell Goblet Squat
Kettlebell Goblet Squats are a level up from regular body squats. Holding a kettlebell under chin while squatting allows you to place more resistance on your quads, engage your core more, and place extra stress on the biceps and delts.
10. Row Machine
This underrated piece of cardio equipment is probably abandoned in the corner of your gym somewhere. Several sets of high resistance rowing for 60 seconds or 250 meters at a time is a sure-fire way to burn massive amounts of calories in only a few minutes.
3 Mistakes People Make When Cutting Carbs
If cardio feels like a chore that you keep putting it off then try mixing up these cardio exercises. If you do each one of these cardio exercises for 1 minute and take 60 seconds of rest in between each set you will have done a 20 minute, full body cardio workout that is guaranteed to burn more calories and burn more fat than 20 minutes of jogging on the treadmill.
Trying to get your diet on track but don’t know where to start? Consider this your step-by-step guide to Meal Prep
There’s no one way to meal prep. Your best bet is to find a routine that works best for your schedule. If you don’t have much time during the week to prep, you may want to make extra-large batches on Sundays. If your schedule is a little more free, you can get away with prepping your food on Sundays and Wednesdays. I also prep day-to-day by bringing mostly quick, easy meals to work. Here’s how you can start:
1. Large Batch Prep Your Protein
Your proteins will generally take the longest amount of time to prep so you might as well start by getting that out of the way as soon as possible. Use a crock pot and cook several pounds of meat in it for several hours, then separate each portion in tupperware. This is an easy, hands-off approach and requires very little attention. You can also bake or grill several pounds at a time which works just as well, it just requires a little more attention.
2. Large Batch Prep Your Carbs
Carbs are generally easier to prep. Oatmeal only takes a few minutes, you can buy steamable potatoes, rice, and bread requires almost no attention at all. Cook several cups at a time of your carbohydrates of choice and separate them into tupperware, or pair them with the proteins you’ve already prepped.
3 Mistakes People Make When Cutting Carbs
3. Keep an eye on fats
Prepping fat takes almost no energy whatsoever. If you’re using oil, just use a teaspoon or tablespoon and add it to your pre-prepped protein/carbs. Nuts can be portioned and stored in separate plastic bags, containers or in the same tupperware as your protein & carbs. Butters should be portioned using a teaspoon or tablespoon and added to each dish. Avocado is really the only fat that should wait until the very last minute before prepping because they spoil quickly.
4. Only prep the hard stuff (if you’re in a crunch for time)
I love cooking, but maybe you don’t. My advice is to only prep the “hard stuff” like meats, (lots of) vegetables, potatoes, etc. You can always pack some whey protein, a sandwich, Greek yogurt parfait, and quick, healthy snacks the night before you get up for work.
I personally prep the night before I go to work, about 4-5 nights/week and have a few large batch prepared meals ready. I usually bring 3-4 meals to work with me and most of them only take minutes to prep. Here’s an example:
Greek yogurt Parfait
Prepped the night before: Greek yogurt portioned in a tupperware container, high protein granola portioned in a zip-lock bag, 1 whole banana stored in my bag.
AB & J on Double Protein Bread, Protein Shake
Prepped the night before: Spread 1 tbsp. of almond butter and 1 tbsp. of preserves on 2 slices of double protein bread and place in a tupperware container or zip-lock bag. Store 1 scoop of whey protein in a small container.
Chicken, Veggies & Rice
Prepared a few nights before: Store 4-6 oz. of chicken, 1 cup of veggies, and 1 cup of rice in a tupperware container and place in the fridge or freezer until the morning before work. Then, I put the tupperware in my 6 Pack Bag and bring it to work.
All of these meals are stored in the fridge the night before I go to work. The morning of, I put all of them in my 6 Pack Bag (Expedition 300) and bring them to work. Now I have 3-4 meals when I need them at work. I hope this helps you as you learn to meal prep like a pro. Once you start you’ll immediately see the advantages and understand why so many fitness enthusiasts, bodybuilders, and athletes meal prep.
