“You can’t pour from an empty cup.”
“You are not required to set yourself on fire to keep other people warm.”
“Don’t give so much of yourself to others that you end up losing yourself.”
“Fall in love with taking care of yourself.”
“You gotta nourish to flourish.”
You have probably read sayings like these before (they ARE all over Pinterest and Instagram and Facebook…) written in cute, colorful fonts accompanied with inspirational, sometimes thought provoking, images. All subtle and direct messages about how important it is that we take care of ourselves. Why are these messages so common and so popular? Because we are so busy running our careers, our businesses, our families, our homes, our social lives and commitments to even think about how to properly take care of ourselves. So we need cute little reminders that it is okay to put ourselves first.
And what is the most important way we take care of ourselves? We feed ourselves GOOD food. Food that our bodies need and crave. Food that nourishes us and energizes us and helps us live long, productive lives.
This is why a Cincinnati & Kentucky food prep service like Prepped Girl is so important and worth the investment. It allows us to keep doing what we are doing AND take care of ourselves at the same time. Need some convincing? Here are 5 reasons you need a Cincinnati & Kentucky food prep service like Prepped Girl in your life:
1) A food prep service saves you time.
Well, that is if you are using up some of your time on the weekends and weeknights to actually prep your meals ahead of time. Prepping ahead of time requires time to plan your menu, shop for your ingredients, and prep your food. Time you could be using to get caught up on other activities or to simply relax. Using a meal prep service will take care of that for you. We here at Prepped Girl do all the planning, shopping, and prepping, and all you have to do is choose your meals and click a button. We can even bring the meals directly to your door already made (minimum meal order for delivery). Talk about a time saver!
2) A food prep service makes healthy eating easy and convenient for you.
For those of us who just don’t have the time to prep our meals ahead of time, meal prep services make it easy for you to eat healthy, nutritious meals WITHOUT taking time away from all the other stuff you do. Cincinnati & Kentucky food prep services like Prepped Girl only use fresh, wholesome ingredients, and offer a variety of ways to eat vegetables and protein. Plus, with breakfast AND lunch options, you don’t have to guess or figure out what to eat each day. You just grab your already prepared meals from the refrigerator and go.
3) A food prep service can help you lose weight.
I mean, let’s be real, shall we? What is the hardest part about losing weight? Food. We are bombarded with not-so-good-for-us-food options every where we go. And since we are being real, let’s own up to the fact that we LIKE some of that food. It tastes pretty dang good. It’s hard to make the right choices. But food is 80% of our battle (give or take). We can do all the cardio and lifting of weights that we want, but if we don’t eat right, we won’t see results. Food prep services offer you low calorie meals that actually taste GREAT. At Prepped Girl we only use real, good-for-you-ingredients that leave you satisfied and taste just as good if not better than the not-so-good-for you stuff. Plus, you only get so much so there is ZERO chance of overeating.
4) A food prep service can help you feel better.
Yes, eating healthy food will help you feel better because, well, because you are eating good food and your cells can take that food and create you. But using a meal prep service will help you feel better in that you will feel more in control of your life. There is nothing worse than scrambling around, running late out the door to get to work or to drop the kids off or to run errands. You don’t feel very put together and that “hot mess” feeling can permeate everything you do. When you use a meal prep service like Prepped Girl, there is less scrambling. We can’t help you get to work on time, BUT we can make it easy for you to feel put together once you get there. You just simply grab your breakfast and lunch as you scramble out the door and head to your destination.
5) A food prep service will help you look cool.
Okay. This isn’t necessarily a documented thing, but we think food prep services make you look cool and on trend. I mean, all the cool people use services like Prepped Girl…or at least we think all our customers look cool!
