If I can scream anything from the rooftops and everyone would hear it would be:
RESULTS COME NEARLY 100% FROM NUTRITION!!!!
Remember it, write it down, stare at it until it embeds in your brain and you understand it with all of your heart.
If you are killing yourself in the gym on a daily basis and seeing LITTLE results ask yourself, wtf am I eating?
I highly recommend writing everything you eat in a day down in a journal and checking all the ingredients / nutrition facts as well. Just ONE DAY. See how eye opening it is.
Grocery shopping is honestly one of my most favorite things to do. I especially LOVE Sprouts.
Sprouts is a natural foods store just a few miles away from my apartment. I feel like they carry EVERYTHING. Fresh, organic produce, fruit and meat. Sprouts also carries my favorite nut milks, kombucha, Ezekiel bread, MCT oil, trail mix’s, I can go on and on and on…
I thought I would share with you my STAPLES.
High protein, nutrient dense snacks that keep me full for HOURS and feeling good.
Also, please share with me your GO-TO foods you have weekly!
Fruit is an awesome snack…for the MORNING TIME. Fruit is pure sugar– 100% fructose– spiking your insulin up super high (which is fine if you burn it off right away). Eating fruit gives you really quick energy & if you are not burning it off right away it will make you crash and crave bad foods. My tip: cut sugar off after lunch and save yourself the worries of crashing and craving.
I usually just get 1-2 different fruits or else the rest will go bad.
-Specifically from sprouts-
- Ezekiel Cereal + Silk Protein Milk (19g protein)
- Apples + Peanut Butter (10g protein)
- Tofurky Deli Slices (SO GOOD/VEGAN) + Kashi Sea Salt Crackers (16g protein)
- Organic Chicken Bone Broth (9g protein)
- A good trail mix (Almonds, Cashwes, Walnuts) <6g protein
Think HIGH PROTEIN when it comes to snacks if you want to feel full (I shoot for no less than 10-20g protein each snack). Protein is what is going to help you feel full, feed your lean muscle mass, grow stronger, & FEEL GOOD.
- Brown Rice
- Sweet Potatoes
- Chicken Breast
- Lentil Pasta
- Ground Turkey
- Frozen Veggies
Lunch & Dinner need to be PERFECTLY balanced. A perfect plate has 1/2 veggies (any you want), 1/4 LEAN PROTEIN (no dark meat), 1/4 healthy carbs (nothing starchy and white). This will provide all the protein, nutrients and minerals you need!
How would you rate your eating habits on a scale of 1-10?
