The Best Meal to Prep


Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Brett Safford, I am the woman behind the mechanics of the sharecast, the designer of your monthly emails and the KD Elite billing. I love supporting Krisha and the KD Elite team in giving you the best fitness experience possible. My husband and I have been working out with Krisha since May 2020. Since we started our relationship remotely we didn’t meet in person until the following year, despite living less than 2 miles away. Our first face to face meeting was when I dropped off some gluten free air fried maple glazed donuts at her house.


I started out my adult working life in the food industry. The joy and passion I felt in those first kitchens and bakeries I worked in led me down the path I am on now. With a culinary arts degree and over 15 years of experience in the food industry, I am deeply passionate about the art of cooking and the joy it brings to people's lives. As a mother, I understand the importance of nourishing meals that are not only delectable but also promote good health. With an unwavering commitment to preparing dishes that are both nutritious and mouthwatering, I strive to create culinary experiences that satisfy both the body and the soul.


When I began my fitness journey with Krisha, many moons ago, food was my primary focus. How do I take my love for food and all things that taste delicious and also meet my nutrition goals? My method was to take dishes I already loved and tweak them to kick up the protein and balance the fat and the fiber. Oh and the other most important thing… How do I make it easy and repeatable in a meal prep kind of way?


Today I am going to share with you that first meal I made for my husband and I that helped us hit our numbers and had us looking forward to dinner night after night. Monthly I would prep my protein that I would freeze in portions. Then weekly I would prep 6 days worth of meals - portioning them out in glass containers that could easily be microwaved. Then I would defrost the protein each night then add it to my reheated vegetables. Below I have shared my go to chicken recipe along with the veggie prep.
