When you’re trying to live a healthier lifestyle, microwaveable meals just don’t make the cut … unless they’re prepared by a trained chef inside a local kitchen.

Created by former NFL athlete Gerome Sapp, Health Binge is a grab-and-go prepared-food service offering pre-packaged, portion-controlled and nutrient-rich entrées and snacks that make healthy living easy. With access to breakfast, lunch and dinner choices like lemon and vanilla blackberry pancakes, ancho chili bison enchiladas and blackened shrimp and grits, anyone with a busy lifestyle can get proper nutrition without sacrificing time or taste.

Sapp initially developed the concept for his teammates as the football captain at Notre Dame, but it wasn’t until he graduated from Harvard Business School that he streamlined the idea. Having just announced a new partnership with EOS Fitness, Health Binge is set to operate from 14 locations across Nevada and Arizona this month.

“I took a very methodical approach to it,” Sapp says. “The model is perfect for the gym.” The flagship location, located near Jones and the 215, opened in December and has already garnered a loyal fanbase. There’s even a weekly program called the “Binge 7” that includes free delivery, and curious patrons are also encouraged to visit Health Binge every Saturday to talk to the in-house nutritionist, free of charge.

“It should start with your goals,” Sapp says. “Eating healthy and changing the way [people] approach life in terms of nutrition and wellness—that’s what our meals help with.”

Health Binge, 6040 W. Badura Ave. #140, 702-629-6111; daily 7 a.m.-8 p.m.
