Meal prep I can get behind

Meal prep I can get behind
“If you want the fries, eat the damn fries.”

For the record, that wasn’t my only takeaway from the MNCPA webinar, Finding a Healthy Balance: Nutrition Know-How for CPAs. But I’d be lying to you if I said it didn’t hit.

Sure, it’s funny. But it also makes a lot of sense. Taking a balanced approach to what I eat means I can sometimes get the fries instead of the salad — and that’s awesome.

More than 240 MNCPA members tuned in to this free CPE webinar led by CPA-turned-nutrition coach Heather Buda. She encouraged attendees to dump the “all-or-nothing” mentality and instead focus on building healthy, sustainable habits.

One pro tip she recommends is planning and prepping meals for the week. Can’t wrap your head around a whole week’s worth of meals? Me neither. But I can get a week’s worth of chopping out of the way.
Here are some of the sites she uses when searching for healthy recipes:

When she’s not making corporate CPAs feel like rockstars or rescuing members from CPA certificate mishaps, you can find her at home embarrassing her kids with questionable karaoke choices, usually of the Elvis variety. If you get the chance, ask her about plant propagating, campfire building or dining out in Minneapolis where she and her family reside.
