Before we get into the rest of this blog post…

I want to say thank you to all our readers and the Reign Fitness Community for the support and feedback we got on Part 1 of “The Healthy Cooking and Protein Meal Prep Video” and the “What We Eat” grocery shopping video.

On top of all the support, we got a ton of questions and I thought it would be beneficial to answer them here on the Reign Fitness Blog so here we go…

Q. How long do the groceries in the “What We Eat” video last you? 

A. The groceries will typically last us about 3 weeks.

Q. Do you use olive oil or coconut oil when cooking? 

A. If the animal protein has enough fat, we typical won’t add/use any additional fat like olive oil or coconut oil. For all the other cooking we like to use coconut oil because of it’s higher temperature threshold.

Q. How else do you prepare your chicken? 

A. I like to grill year round so that is definitely one way we will prep the chicken. It’s nice because you can grill like 10-12 chicken breasts at the same time and prepare a lot of meals that way. Mesha likes to also bake a lot of chicken, pretty simple. (350 degrees for 30-35 minutes).
 
Q. Do you prefer fresh or frozen vegetables?

We love to use fresh vegetables as much as possible but frozen vegetables can be very convenient for prepping meals. We will typically utilize both fresh and frozen throughout the week. When you are going through a lot of vegetables it’s nice to have a frozen supply so your not running to the store all the time.

Q. What does a typical day of eating look like for you two? 

Check out the bottom of the post after you watch the video.

Q. How much Protein do you consume each day? 

Mesha’s daily target is to get 1 gram of protein in per pound of bodyweight. I am always trying to get 1.25 grams to 1.5 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight.

Q. What type of carbs do you guys typically eat? 

The carbs we eat typically get cycled but usually consist of oatmeal, sweet potatoes, brown rice, quinoa, or some variations of these. Anytime we are looking to lean out, most of our carbs come from vegetables.
