I started posting meal prep videos on my blog years ago as a resource for athletes on how to eat cleaner. I never claimed to make the healthiest meals, but my goal was to offer a few new ideas and show how easy it can be make better choices, inspire those who are intimidated by the kitchen, and occasionally demonstrate how economical “cleaner” eating can be for anyone!

Today’s prep was a throwback to two of my most commonly made meals:

Breakfast Scramble (eggs, green and red pepper, onion, and a bit of chicken and steak)

Salad (spinach, carrots, steak and chicken, blue cheese crumbles, candied pecans)

All in, the groceries for this prep ran just over $50 and I estimated that it produced around 11 meals for me. For context, that comes out to around $4.50 per meal. If I were to run to Chipotle, my usual burrito costs me $13.67. So yeah, it’s a lot cheaper for me to take a few hours and make food that’s better for me anyways!

There are still times where I won’t feel like cooking, didn’t have time to make a grocery run, or just craved a Motomaki Sushi Burrito. The point of posts like this, though, is to show that eating well doesn’t have to be intimidating. I’ve said this many times on my blog before that since people in our community by and large share the goal of wanting to get in better shape: “You can’t out-train a bad diet.” Nutrition is the base of the pyramid of success that CrossFit created, so if I can help at least one person feel more confident and equipped with some simple ideas, I’ll be a happy guy.
