Snap Kitchen—whose green chile chicken enchiladas are shown above—is just one of this weekend's competitors at Houston's first-ever Fit Meal Challenge.

Whether your health and fitness resolutions are coming along great, or need a little revisiting already, don’t worry— we’ve got you covered. This weekend promises an event so loaded with health benefits, it'll be sure to kick your goals into high gear. Houston’s first ever Fit Meal Challenge will take place tomorrow, January 14, from noon to 3 p.m. at 11707 W. Sam Houston Parkway.

What you need to know:

The Fit Meal Challenge is a competition between local health food companies. These places work hard to provide balanced, healthy, appropriately-portioned meals, taking the guesswork out of meal prepping. (A truly daunting task, I myself recently discovered.) The beauty of these companies is that the food is freshly prepared and ready when you are, fitting perfectly into your busy schedule. Now you really have no excuses not to eat healthy.

Who's participating:

There are 12 companies competing in tomorrow’s event, including Snap Kitchen, Perfect Fit Meals and Bee Fit Foods. According to the challenge website, the Houston Fit Meal Challenge is the first of its kind and promises to be, “an action-packed, healthy, fit meal competition between Houston companies claiming they have the best ‘healthy and fit’ foods to offer.”

Why you should go:

Not only is tomorrow’s event free, it also benefits the Houston Food Bank, the local organization whose goal is feeding Houston's hungry by making food accessible to those who are in need, so be sure to bring a non-perishable donation. You will also be able to eat food and lots of it! Celebrity judges and Houstonians alike will get to taste different meals from these fit food companies and vote in order to crown one of them victorious. A few of the celebrity judges who are attending tomorrow’s Fit Meal Challenge include former Houston Dynamo soccer star Brian Ching, current World Boxing Champion Jermall “The Hitman” Charlo, social media phenomenon King Keraun, defensive back for the Arizona Cardinals Marcus Cooper, and former NFL player Doug Dawson.
