Our Story: About Meal Prep on Fleek
This Instagram post is how it all started...
Nick connected, with a fellow food blogger (Sarah), over a cheesy burger (because Sarah loves cheese) on Instagram back in September 2015. They came together to create a cheesy, glorious, food Instagram account full of the food they dreamed about (but never really ate).

After several months of trying to create and curate content, for younger people, around those crazy 1000+ calorie meals, they both came to the realization that it wasn't something they could really stand behind.
By the end of 2016, we had gained over 100K Instagram followers and thought it was a natural step to create a destination online to teach people how to meal prep and share inspiring recipes. If you’re looking to get started with Meal Prepping, check out our Getting Started - Meal Prep 101 Guide
Today (October 2021), we have reached over 11MM people through the website and are supporting a total community size of over 900k on social media.

Hey everyone... this is crazy weird for me because I would have never done this in a million years had you asked me 6 months ago. But because one of my goals for 2017 is to teach and inspire more people, here it is...
I've been working out consistently for the past 5 years, with very little progress. In 2016 I started meal prepping almost every weekend. I make 10 meals per weekend that I eat for lunch throughout the week. Each meal (most of the time) costs under $4 per meal and I spend about 3 hours making all 10 meals.
I've slowly been decreasing in body fat, but not losing weight... which is ok. To date, I've lost 6% body fat, going from 23% body fat to 16.7% body fat. I went from a snug 36" pant waist to a loose 34" pant waist.
This has been a total game changer for me. I am totally open to question, thoughts, feedback, etc. My goal was never weight loss, but portioned meals with mostly whole ingredients. In other words... No canned or bagged food.
Now... if I could only get my hair to grow. ????
