Today’s guest is breaking down what so many of us struggle with: how to prepare meals when we’re on the go and on a full schedule.
Justine Cappel is a pre and post natal fitness specialist, personal trainer and Precision Nutrition Coach. She’s the owner of Twenty Toes Fitness based in Toronto, and Justine runs a passion project on Instagram called Simple Family Food, where she shares lots of simple ideas and recipes for feeding her family while keeping it healthy-ish.
What I love about Justine is that we aren’t talking about your average meal prep, where every single item of food is portioned into Tupperware containers and takes up your entire Sunday.
This is more about how minimal planning and a single extra hour in the week can have a huge impact on our ability to make choices that feel good for our bodies the rest of the week rather than defaulting to take-out, even if you’re not someone who’s into cooking.
One of those questions that always seems to loom over many of us is what to eat for dinner in particular, and at the end of a long workday it can seem overwhelming. Instead, Justine is talking us through how we can use even the smallest amount of preparation to free up some mental bandwidth during the hectic work and school week rather than having to default to the drive-through, and why motivation is a myth.
Plus, Justine is giving us tips on cooking for kids and how to involve them in the process so that they actually get excited about eating nutrient dense foods, which is one of the most common issues many parents I’ve talked to struggle with.
