For many, the beginning of the New Year brings renewed focus to a healthier lifestyle and one key to diet success lies in having a plan in place for meals throughout the week. Work, family and other commitments can make the idea of cooking healthy, balanced meals throughout the week seem overwhelming.
Meal prepping can help as it takes the guesswork out of the nutrition side of a healthy, balanced lifestyle, but the idea of counting macros and cooking a week’s worth of meals at a time can be daunting for some.
One locally owned business offers a solution to cut down on the time it takes to prepare savory, nutritionally balanced meals that you can also feel good about eating.
Lake Charles native and owner of Apex Meal Prep, David Simon, has his sights set on being a premier meal prep service that provides convenience to their customers, but more importantly, flavorful meals.
“Meal prepping does not have to be boring and repetitive,” says Simon. “It should not be confined to weekly set menus either. Our meals are fully customizable, with more than 330 possible meal combinations. We take care of the macro counting and we help customers have satisfying, heat-and-eat meals on hand.”
No matter what your diet plan may include, Simon says Apex Meal Prep has an option to fit. “We are able to accommodate any lifestyle or nutritional needs our customers may have, be it keto, vegan, low carb, no carb and more.”
Living in an area known for the quality and tastiness of its food might make the idea of purchasing pre-prepared meals a little uncertain, but the meals at Apex Meal Prep are designed to satisfy local taste buds, keeping customers feeling guilt-free while enjoying them.
Meals are available in store and ready to heat and eat right out of the store’s fully stocked coolers. Online ordering also adds to the convenience, giving customers options for lunches and dinners on the go.
“We offer an Apex Membership for only $10 a month that provides members with exclusive pricing on all meals in store and online, discounted prices on merchandise and access to silver, gold and platinum meal plans,” adds Simon. “We also offer free macro consultations for members. This is a one-on-one consultation that helps our customers determine their individual needs based on their information and nutritional goals.”
Although Simon has been providing meal prepping services to the area since 2017, his storefront opened in mid-December with coolers stocked full of a variety of meal options. Customers can either take their meals to go, or they can take a few moments to heat up their meal in store before getting back on the road.
Apex Meal Prep also carries BPN (Bare Performance Nutrition) supplements, pre-workout solutions and Whey protein powders in a variety of flavors.
As 2022 begins, Simon offers this advice to anyone looking to make a healthier lifestyle a reality in the New Year. “Stay consistent. Consistency compounds over time and if you just keep your eye on your goal and stick with it, you will absolutely be successful. Consistency requires preparedness and goals of bettering health, getting in shape or simply accelerating fitness, start in the kitchen. Apex Meal Prep can help by providing the tools necessary to take the guess work and time out of being prepared nutritionally to crush individual goals.”
