Splendid Spoon Magic
For dancers, some of the most common questions are about meal prep, quick meals and short cuts to healthy eating. I’m all about making healthy eating as simple as possible. There are times when it’s really just a matter of building the habits to prep and have the healthy food available.
Other times, like when you’ve got performances or your schedule is just packed it’s best to take a simpler route. Obviously, meal delivery services are about ease but many of them are not quite as concerned with quality of food and healthy options.
Splendid Spoon goes against the grain by prioritizing nutrition packed foods, nutrients and even principals of intermittent fasting.
My favorite plan from Splendid Spoon is The Program 2.0. It includes smoothies, soups and blended soups and can help you to get back on track if you’ve felt like your eating habits have gotten out of whack. While I’m usually a “soup only in cold weather person” I’m also super aware that the summer can easily take your healthy eating habits off track.
When I tried Splendid Spoon in the Spring, I used it to supplement my cooking. I always have time to do some cooking but I don’t always have time to cook 3 meals a day. With Splendid Spoon I was able to use the meals when I needed. This meant, I’d sometimes have a smoothie for lunch or one of the soups for lunch or dinner.
The blended soups I’d usually heat up at home then take with me on – the – go, in a travel mug, as a snack or just to energize me through midday. There are so many ways to integrate Splendid Spoon into a healthy lifestyle and the time it will save you is amazing. When we have 1 less thing to think about it really frees up some space to focus on our goals!
If you can’t fathom soup in the summer, try a smoothie delivery option – hellooooo time saver! Even just one meal being pre – made for you can save you time and mental energy. Did you know that the average adult makes nearly 200 choices about food in a single day? With Splendid Spoon you can eliminate a good number of those choices and know you’re making good decisions for your body.
For dancers, during the busy season you may require more food that a day’s allotment from Splendid Spoon. In that case I’d suggest adding some healthy whole foods that will nourish you and sustain you through rehearsals, classes and performances. There’s really nothing worse that being distracted by hunger when you’re trying to perform at your best.
If you’re in a good place with your mentality around food – you feel like your practices with food are generally balanced and healthy but you’re having a hard time reaching a body goal. Or maybe you’re looking for a little pre – season detox of sorts to get your body and eating back on track, The Program 2.0 from Splendid Spoon could guide you in the right direction.
The daily mean plan includes 1 smoothie, 1 blended soup (which they call their “soup cleanse”) and 1 regular soup.
From Splendid Spoon : “Our Program is the culmination of over five years of diet and fasting research, customer feedback, hundreds of thousands of meals, and a whole lotta hard work. It’s a foolproof wellness plan that keeps your body fitter, stronger, and cleaner. Beyond the body, we provide the mindfulness training and support that help you take ownership of your well-being. Together, these are the small changes that make a big impact on your health.”
I would caution that if you are an emotional eater, binge eater, or feel like you have a negative relationship with food and your body than you’re better off participating in a program like The Dancer’s Best Body Program before giving any sort of meal delivery service a try.
Trying any diet, meal plan or pre – determined food plan if you haven’t first worked through your relationship with food (as silly as the concept of a relationship with food might seem) will not yield long term body changes.
Also remember that any temporary plan – 1 week of Splendid Spoon eating – won’t transform your body unless you take what you experience forward. How can you use a delivered meal plan as a stepping stone to take healthier eating forward?
