A healthy lifestyle starts from the inside, so fueling your body with nutritious and delicious food is a key component of feeling great. But, we know that coming up with a meal plan and cooking fresh food everyday can be a lot of work––good thing there are so many great local Baltimore restaurants that make healthy eating easy!

Another great way to make healthy living easy is meal prep. That way, you can avoid the nightly struggle of “what am I going to have for dinner?” Your meal will be prepped ready to eat! There are some great meal prep companies that serve Baltimore, so prepared meals are delivered right to your door. It doesn’t get easier than that!
Jimmy's Famous allows you to “set it and forget it.” Simply select how many meals you want per week, whether you want to pick it up or have it delivered, and your preferred meal plan. Jimmy’s has options to customize based on your fitness goals, such as whether you want to bulk up or tone. Each week, they shake things up with a new menu, so you’ll never be bored. They offer keto and paleo-friendly plans, too!
Simply pop one of John’s Fit Meals into the microwave, and poof! You have a hot, delicious and healthy meal ready to go. Based right here in Maryland, John’s Fit Meals offers pre-portioned, pre-prepared meals made with wholesome and fresh ingredients.

Prepared by Executive Chef Parker Greene at the Merritt Club, LM Prep meals are clean-cooked and made with locally sourced ingredients. Simply select your meals and a pick-up date, and you’re good to go.

When Territory creates their meal prep recipes, they consult nutritionists and local chefs to ensure that you’re getting the highest quality in both nutrition and taste. Plus, they cater to paleo, Whole-30, keto, low carb, Mediterranean, vegetarian, vegan, mixitarian, plant-based and low-fat diets. When you order your meals, you can even see the macro information for each dish, so you know exactly what you’re getting and how it can fit into your fitness plan.
While lots of resolutions are centered around weight loss or dieting, it’s important to consider all aspects of health. With all of the turmoil of the past few months, you may be feeling more stressed or upset than usual. Taking extra steps towards mental self-care is another important way to feel healthier and happier in the new year. Try adding a mental health component to your New Year’s resolutions, like starting a habit of journaling or meditation.
We hope the fresh start of a new year inspires you to #LiveYourAnthem in a happier and healthier way, Anthem residents. We wish you the best of luck in sticking to your resolutions! Share your healthy meals and favorite workouts with us on our Instagram page, @AnthemHouseApts.
