Hey guys, I'm still alive and kicking! So exciting news on my end real quick! I started back up with school (Whoot Whoot)! Good luck to anybody who recently started their semester, may straight A's be in your near future! For this weeks blog I will be discussing how to quickly and effectively prepare fat burning, muscle-building, healthy meals! First off, let’s talk about how everyone hates meal prepping and see it as a negative. My favorite thing people say is the good ol “I just feel like I'm eating the same stuff over and over”.

Disclaimer*** Don’t treat fats as your enemy! Just realize that you only need them in moderation.
That’s right, I said it… you can, of course, include other foods in your meals. Avocado, nuts, seeds and other healthy fats all play a role in your meals The thing is, they are calorically dense and play a very small role. Usually it is one tablespoon of guacamole or the cooking of your food in oil to be more than enough fat for a meal.
