"Fit and Fresh"

I'm teaming up with a fantastic personal trainer to offer a "Fit and Fresh" package to people in our area. Except I wish we could come up with a nicer name. "Fit and Fresh" sounds like a bag of lettuce or something. Any ideas out there?

Here's the scoop: The client contacts us about the package (it's a great gift for a husband, wife, parent or boss-- hint, hint), we set up a date and time, and we both arrive: he to do the training, me to do the cooking. The price is $175 and includes everything - 1 hour of training, groceries, and a healthy, home-cooked meal that will serve 4-6 family members. The challenge for me was designing meals that I could prepare in 1 hour and stay within budget. But, I enjoy that sort of challenge. Here are a few of my ideas:

Turkey Chili
Whole Wheat Rolls
Mixed Greens with Low-Fat Creamy Herb Buttermilk Dressing

Chicken with Cranberry Sauce
Mashed White Beans
Autumn Salad with Maple Vinaigrette

Spicy Orange Beef Stir-Fry
Vegetable "Fried" Rice
Cucumber Salad

Greek Chicken with Orzo
Spinach Salad with Poppyseed Dressing

Crispy Baked Tilapia
Oven-Roasted Sweet Potato Fries
Baby Greens with Lemon Vinaigrette

Slow Cooked Black Beans with Brown Rice and Cheese
Wheat Tortillas
Fiesta Salad

Got comments? We'd love to hear 'em before we officially launch this idea.
