Protein… more than just building muscles.

Most of us are familiar with the story of the three little pigs?

If this one missed your nighttime routines as a kid, I’ll give you a brief summary:

The three little pigs who are the subject of the title were being targeted by a very tricky wolf.

So each of these pigs decided their safest bet was to split up and build themselves three separate homes to protect themselves.

One little pig built his home out of straw. Not the most sturdy structure so the wolf came and blew it away.

The second little pig built his home out of sticks and again this material was not a strong enough defense.

This third little pig however built his home out of brick. A strong building block and when the wolf came to blow it away, the house wouldn’t budge and the three pigs were safe.

When trying to build healthy nutritional habits into our lifestyle it’s important that we think like that third little architect.

We have to have a strong foundational tool to defend our bodies from threats.

Protein is one of the most instrumental tools in facilitating key functions in your body and for creating a strong satiating diet.

Muscle tissue, cartilage, skin, and bone are all created within the body by the building blocks of protein.

In addition to the physical benefits, certain proteins contains amino acids like tyrosine and tryptophan which promotes certain neurotransmitter production. 

Meaning that eating more protein can make you have more drive, be able to concentrate better, give you the ability to be more calm and feel more happy.

Not only is your mood improved but the additional amino acids; arginine and glutamine which can be found in certain proteins provide important immune support for your body.

Each PureFit meal packs on average 30g of protein.

That high protein content gives you a solid base to protect the work of all your healthy lifestyle choices.

It is also important in fueling energy to complete each task in your day. Protein is key in your body’s completion of the krebs cycle which creates energy for all your activities.

A higher protein content in each of your meals will produce a longer lasting feeling of fullness.

When choosing the materials to build a strong and healthy body, the place that you live; it is important that you choose a material that gives you the right tools.

To optimize the multiple benefits that protein will give you, I would recommend that you partition your protein out throughout the day.

That way all of the benefits of this important macronutrient are cycling through your system at a consistent rate.

Those tools to build a strong foundation to defend your body from disease, produce a feeling of satiety and comfort, and create a longer lasting healthier you.

Choosing PureFit meals means choosing a meal that you know is guaranteed to provide a tool that is vital  for your bodies high performance.

Be an architect. Your body is the one home you can’t move out of. Give it the materials it needs to thrive and stand strong. Choose PureFit meals and choose a healthy body.

What’s your time worth?

 

Every minute in each day is a negotiation with yourself. What’s the most valuable way to spend my time?

Time is something we all have the same amount of. The differences in our lives come from how we choose to spend it. Something you can’t avoid is taking time to fuel your body. Proper fuel allows you to do all other daily tasks more efficiently. Making this choice can mean a sacrifice in another area of our life. And remember, we only have so much time to use. Studies have concluded that a person spends an average of one hour per day prepping, cooking, and cleaning up. Times that by seven days in a week and we are looking at 7 hours lost to food. During that week you also had to shop for groceries. The average time spent in a grocery store shopping for a week’s worth of food is 45 minutes. Given typical traffic, you can estimate 30 minutes of driving time. Over the course of a week just in meal time related activities you have lost somewhere between 7-10 hours. To continue being productive in other areas, we can’t just stop eating to gain that time back.

Let’s get a little more efficient.

Say we are going to choose to spend time on the weekend prepping our food for the week. If I choose to instead cook 15 meals on Sunday and then go the extra step to portion them out appropriately. I may cut my cooking, prepping, and cleanup time to about 5 hours for the week. Then if I average my time spent going to the store; shopping and commuting to one hour, we are at 6 hours spent in food prep. Depending on which of these routes you take and how efficient you can be with your time spent we are still looking at 6-10 total hours per week lost to the creation of food.

Now let’s look at cost.

On average a meal that you shopped for and prepared yourself costs you around $5. For 3 meals a day over the course of 7 days you are spending $105 a week to feed yourself. But what amount did I really lose when I factor in time? If I could supplement my week with just one meal a day that I knew would be high quality and have virtually zero time spent in a grocery store, preparing or cleaning up I could cut the amount of time I spend on food in half. I could gain back 3-5 hours every week. What is that time valued at for you? For those who are entrepreneurs, work in sales, or are otherwise employed in a time intensive career those hours lost each week could equate to a large loss in productivity and profit.

Let’s look at how we could save time.

By spending just over $50 to get five PureFit meals for the week and use them as lunch you could gain another five hours of work time productivity. If you make over $10 an hour; the time you’ve gained has created a more profitable situation for you then spending that time on food. By supplementing your week with the help of PureFit. You’ve optimized the efficiency of staying properly fueled with high quality foods and utilizing your time to gain a maximum benefit.

So again I ask you, what is your time worth?

Let PureFit give back to you. Give back your time, and give back your freedom to determine what is most valuable to you. Grab a meal today and enjoy your extra hour.
