Crushing Your New Year Health Goals

Para español orpima >>Alcanzando tus Metas de Bienestar Este Año Nuevo

By AnaMaria Bech

As 2024 approaches, many people aim to start the new year with a clean slate. They set goals and renew their dreams, hoping to make positive life changes. While we expect gyms to be packed and diets to begin, we also know that for many, it will only last for a while.



If you want to become a healthier version of yourself in 2024, there is a way! Eat Crush Meals is a meal prep company that originated in Louisiana, focusing on providing healthy meal options and sensible portions to busy individuals. Most people fall off the healthy eating bandwagon due to time constraints and poor planning.

That’s where Eat Crush Meals comes in to help. James Haik, the entrepreneur and owner of the company, began his food journey to stay healthy and save money on grocery waste. The meals’ organic produce and authentic flavors made it easy for Haik to believe in the company and invest in taking the local brand beyond Louisiana. According to Haik, “Eat Crush Meals is more than just a meal prep company; it’s a passion project that aims to inspire individuals to take charge of their health and achieve their goals.” He is a testament to a lifestyle change that came from better nutrition. His belief in the company’s offers has taken the local service to over 48,000 people nationwide.


Haik’s daughter, Isabella, follows in his footsteps as an entrepreneur in the health industry. Isabella made her health a top priority. “As a student-athlete, she believes sensible-portioned meals are the key to performing better. “Isabella’s drive to ‘crush it’ and maintain a 3.75 GPA while participating in activities like swim team, choir, and cheerleading is a testament to her commitment to health and performance,” says Haik.


She enjoyed the positive changes she saw within herself so much that she became more involved in the family business. “I got involved to help my dad with little projects like labels and meal prepping.” Now, father and daughter work together as a team. They understand the challenges individuals with busy lifestyles face, including the difficulty of regularly preparing healthy meals in between activities. Isabella brings fresh ideas to the company, drawing on her multicultural background to suggest flavorful dishes incorporating some Latin flavors she grew up with. By offering diverse food options on their menu, they can cater to different taste buds, including Jamaican dishes, Central American cuisine, and Asian flavors.


Eat Crush Meals has developed several plan options to help individuals kick-start their health journey, including the 15 meals per week plan, which provides 6-7oz of food and 1300-1500 calories daily. This plan removes the guesswork, thinking, and preparation that can be overwhelming for people seeking a balanced diet. In addition to this option, Eat Crush Meals offers Paleo, Breakfast Only, and Weight Loss Essential plans for ready-to-heat gourmet meals.


Eat Crush Meals is involved in community service, sharing positivity, and partnering with schools like Chapelle, where Isabella goes, promoting healthy eating. “I’d like to influence my family and other teenagers in my community of the importance of nutrition and fitness,” says Isabella. Haik also believes food is the starting point for achieving a healthier and happier life. He knows that his company is changing lives one meal at a time.
