Almost every weekend, Amanda Meixner preps her healthy meals and shares her photos on her Instagram account.
Her simple recipes and colorful photos of mouthwatering food remind us that healthy meal prep doesn’t have to be hard to be good.
Recently, Amanda incorporated the Beachbody Performance Line into her intense training schedule and showed us how it fit into her clean-eating lifestyle.
“I was so excited to get to try the Beachbody Performance Line!” she told us. “It worked perfectly with my 21 Day Fix eating plan. I love that the calories were so targeted, I didn’t have to worry about adding them to my container count. I’m a lover of extreme workouts, and the supplements were a great compliment to the combination of MAX:30, P90X, Body Beast, and 21 Day Fix EXTREME workouts I do.”
Amanda took the Beachbody Performance Energize drink before workouts and said “I literally feel the effects right away! This is great when I work out first thing in the morning and am not totally in the mood to get moving. After one scoop of Engerize, I feel amped!”
During her workouts, she drank Beachbody Performance Hydrate, followed by Beachbody Performance Recover within 30 minutes after cooling down.
She noticed that Hydrate helped her push even harder, and was really excited about Recover.
“It tastes amazing!” she told us, “I’m a chocolate lover, and it definitely feels like I’m drinking dessert. I also like knowing that I’m getting the right blend of proteins to help speed up my muscle recovery.”
See how Amanda combined the Beachbody Performance Line with her regular meal prep (including her grocery list!).
