These days, I’m all about efficiency. If there is a faster way to do something, that is route I go. I like a good home cooked meal but after putting Tommy to bed, it’s often the last thing I want to do.
Last night, Nick and I tried out The Foodery for the first time and it was amazing. I selected a couple of meals last week to be delivered on Sunday. The meals are already made and prepped. All you have to do is reheat. The meals are healthy and the ingredients are thoughtfully chosen from local and organic to wild caught or grass fed. They even lay out specific requirements for each ingredient here on the company website including a list of banned ingredients.
Our first meal was a Caraway Crusted Salmon, Dill Sauce with Roasted Beets and Wheatberry Blend.
The servings were very generous. The meal tasted home cooked, healthy and delicious. I’m picky about salmon and it was cooked perfectly. The two servings cost $27 which is a bargain for a meal like this in my neighborhood. The South End Buttery sells identical salmon (probably not wild) for $28/lb. It would have been at least $40 to get a similar ready to go meal. It was a great alternative to take out, healthier and cheaper.
I can’t even explain how nice it was to have a meal ready in minutes that tasted so fresh. This is a new parents dream and I wish I had it 9 months ago. You can try it now for 20% off your first order using coupon code SarahfitEatWell.
Similar to not wanting to waste my time in the kitchen, I don’t want to waste my time in the gym either. My workouts have gotten shorter and harder to make better use of my free time. I used to HATE burpees, until I realized how effective they were at not only raising my heart rate but also building strength and toning up my entire body. I swear they have also made me faster.
Today’s new video (I upload a new video on YouTube every single Tuesday – so subscribe already!) features 15 of my favorite burpee variations. If you’re an instructor, check it out for some creative additions to your classes. If you’re looking for a challenge, try each one for 5 reps and see how long it takes you to complete. I’m taking the challenge tomorrow morning and will share my results on SnapChat or Insta stories.
Rachel, my videographer, thought it was a funny video. I’m like, “How is it a funny video?” She said it reminded her of the scene from Forrest Gump when he explains that various ways to cook shrimp. You be the judge!
I already did a HIIT workout before filming and my chest was super sore so I only add push ups for the first few examples. The rest are done as a modified version sans push up. Feel free to do as many or just a few with the full range push up. I can’t do 75 in a row, so I’ll be doing the challenge as demonstrated in the video.
What is your favorite variation or did I miss your favorite? Leave it in the comments below or on YouTube.
