Getting fresh produce is extremely hard when you are on a budget. It gets even worse if you live in a neighborhood that doesn’t have the greatest selection of healthy food choices. My simple solution to this problem is frozen bagged vegetables! I love frozen vegetables when I am on a tight budget. It is affordable, never spoils and easy to prepare. I literally throw the frozen veggies in a container and walk of the door with it every single day. There isn’t a huge difference between fresh and frozen veggies, not to be confused with pre cooked frozen foods. The freshness and maybe the micronutrient content isn’t as good as fresh produce but guess what it will get the fucking job done! So if you’re on a budget and complaining about the price of fresh veggies go to your local supermarket and grab a dollar bag of frozen veggies!

I grew up in New York City with very humble beginnings. As a child, like most New York City children, I spent a lot of time in front of the television and eating junk food. After years of being overweight and unhealthy I decided to make a life change. I began working out regularly and almost immediately fell in love with fitness. Boxing became my sport of choice and fueled my progression into a healthier lifestyle. The passion and love I felt for fitness lead me to become a certified personal trainer and later a strength and conditioning coach. The joy I receive from changing someones life physically, spiritually and mentally is the most rewarding feeling ever!
