Why 30-Minute Meals Matter:

Busy schedules shouldn't derail healthy eating habits.  These quick and easy meals offer several benefits:

  1. Reduced Excuses: No time for cooking becomes a less frequent excuse with these speedy options.
  2. Increased Compliance: Clients are more likely to stick to a plan they find manageable.
  3. Improved Nutrition: Healthy, home-cooked meals trump unhealthy fast food choices.

Time-Saving Strategies for Trainers:

To save clients time, encourage them to prep meals once a week. Chopping vegetables, cooking protein in bulk, and portioning ingredients beforehand can shave off significant time during the week. Utilize shortcuts like frozen vegetables, pre-cooked grains, and rotisserie chicken for healthy options that save prep time. Leftovers are lifesavers – cook double portions for dinners and enjoy them for lunch the next day.
