Whenever the topic of meal prep comes up, at some point in the conversation I’ll hear something like:
“I just can’t eat the same thing every day, it doesn’t taste good, it gets boring.”
But do you know what tastes better than food? Success.
Finding good advice on meal prep or nutrition is a pain in the butt. There is just so much B.S. to filter through. Most meals have a complicated list of ingredients and take over an hour to prep. That’s why I’m sharing a cheap, easy, and tasty meal for you to try.
I published this post for the people that eat to perform. Perform at work, perform in the gym, perform with your friends, perform at life. It’s all about performance.
People like us need to conserve all of our time and energy to focus on climbing the mountain.

Bonus things to know:
Macronutrients – referred to as “macros” is a type of food. Macronutrients are those nutrients that the body needs in large amounts. These provide the body with energy (calories). There a four different macronutrients: Proteins, Fats, Carbs, & Veggies.
The PFV Rule – If your goal is staying lean/lose weight, you should focus on the PFV (Protein, Fat, Veggie) diet. If you would like to gain weight and size, you should focus on the PFV + C diet.
Micronutrients – Micronutrients are those nutrients that the body needs in smaller amounts. Micros are mainly made up of vitamins, minerals, etc.
The best way to learn nutrition is to start logging and tracking what you eat using MyFitnessPal.
So as of lately, the taco bowl has been my favorite. I hope you enjoy it too. If you know of a great recipe, let me know in the comments because I want to give it a shot.
