1 Solid Reason to Skip Superfit Meals (other than Thanksgiving😜)

CONFESSION: We took a night off Superfit to enjoy the Jax Foodie Tour experience and WOW – an experience it was! No better way to spend a rainy Wednesday night than over a warm bowl of craft ramen (shout out to @CraneRamen) and good company. Thanks for the great pic, Corinna!

We don’t always veer from our delicious Superfit meals, but when we do we make sure it’s #foodie approved.

The Jax Foodie Tour is an exclusive 2-week Jacksonville food marathon. With your own foodie pass, you can enjoy access to all participating restaurants! Each restaurant serves up a 3-course secret menu.

That’s why we decided to crash Wednesday’s foodie tour at Crane Ramen, a craft ramen restaurant located in historic Five-Points of Jacksonville. They offered a variety of set menus that included appetizers, an entree and dessert. From pan-fried pork dumplings to a warm, savory bowl of craft ramen, you could say we were in foodie heaven.

Despite the delicious, exclusive food access, the tour was a unique way of meeting other Jax locals who share a true passion for food. It’s sponsored by two local foodies who you can surely trust for #foodie approval (GratSee and NateDoesFood). And although ramen was quite the stray away from our typical Superfit meals, the Jax Foodie Tour offers healthier restaurant options, too! Many of which cater to vegan and vegetarian diets as well.

Our 3 opinions of the #JaxFoodieTour experience:

  1. VIP service

Food aside, restaurant service makes all the difference. Crane Ramen went above and beyond, making sure we were enjoying our experience!

  1. Incredible food

The primary reason we did the Jax Foodie Tour: THE FOOD, DUH! I think eating from a secret menu made it taste even better, too 😉(if that’s even possible).

  1. An innovative way of bringing local foodies together to celebrate the hottest Jax food spots!

So unique! If you like good food and cool people, you must check this out!

 

Memories are often created around food. Our vision at Superfit Foods is to make clean eating cool. In turn, we encourage others to continue creating those memories, but around delicious, healthy food. We think it’s awesome the Jax Foodie Tour created an innovative experience to bring like-minded individuals together for an even bigger purpose.

Not only is this tour an incredible way of meeting other Jax foodies, but a cool way to discover your new “cheat” meal spot a well. 😎

Join Our 8-Week Holiday Challenge!

Holiday Challenge

With the holiday season upon us, it’s easy to let yourself go. Avoid the January guilt by joining us on the 80/20 holiday challenge!

The average American eats 21 meals per week (3 meals a day, 7 days a week). When it comes to eating healthy, we often think the key to success is to forbid all “unhealthy” foods. Reality is, restricting yourself from food can lead to a downward spiral. At Superfit Foods, we preach a healthy balance. There is life-altering value in nourishing your body with healthy, nutritious foods. However, we’re all human and want to indulge in some wine and chocolate on a Saturday night.

The 80/20 rule is a balanced approach to healthy eating that incorporates moderation. This rule can be applied to many aspects of your life, but in this case: dieting.

Oscar Wilde once said, “Everything in moderation, including moderation” and we couldn’t agree more! Let’s be honest here, who can eat super clean 100% of the time? Depriving yourself of all the desired American treats simply isn’t realistic. We all enjoy (and deserve) an indulgence…in moderation of course!

The 80/20 rule is not a “fad diet” or tool for weight loss, rather a lifestyle. The practice is to make healthy eating choices 80% of the time, while letting yourself indulge the other 20%. Following this rule, you’ll sustain healthy eating habits long-term, making it easier for you to achieve and sustain your health and fitness goals.

The 5 Easiest Ways to Start Today

  1. Do the math

Assuming you are like most Americans and eat 21 meals a week, that would mean 17 of those should be healthy and you would be allowed 4 “cheat” meals.

  1. Skip the work

Let us make the 80% effortless and delicious for you. Upgrade to 17 meals this week. We’ll handle the time-consuming part of meal prep: shopping, cooking, cleaning. All you have to do is heat and eat…sweet trade, right? OH, and you can 100% customize your meals to your taste preferences. We want eating healthy to be cool, tasty and mindless for you.

  1. Don’t sleep on snacks

If you have a sweet tooth like us, we also offer healthy Snacks that you can add to your order. We like to refer to these as “sweets without the cheat.” Vegan Peanut Butter Protein Cookies, Fruity Pebble Protein Doughnuts, Protein Blueberry Muffins and more!

  1. Don’t sweat the small stuff

If you end up eating 5 or 6 “cheat” meals one week, it’s not the end of the world. Move forward and remind yourself you’re making the effort to better yourself!

  1. Create accountability

95% of people succeed at reaching their goals when they have an accountability partner! Need more accountability? Check out our locations page for some awesome fitness spots in your area!
