You can workout until you’re blue in the face but until your eating habits match your sweat effort you will never see the results that you not only want but deserve. Take time to stock your home with guilt-free grabs for your laziest days and biggest snack-attack moments!
My 5 Go-Tos
Give me that good fat! To be honest, I eat more avocado than is recommended daily. But if you’re going to cheat, cheat well!
High in protein and it contains all 9 essential amino acids.
The healthiest option is to soak dry beans overnight but let’s be real, we don’t always have the time for that. I keep cans of these bad boys in my pantry. *Of the low-sodium variety when possible.
Your favorite greens
Baby spinach, kale, you name it!
Vitamin C, potassium, fiber and more!
**These fab five mix in to my favorite lazy meal like the one below. You can eat it alone or add your personal favorites to the mix. Whether you’re in an olive and cucumber mood or having more of a sautéed onions and peppers day, enjoy!
This is the first thing I reach for in the morning. They contain a decent amount of natural sugar to get you up an at ’em!
Whole grain bread
I eat carbs, I love carbs, I embrace moderation.
I love adding a little olive oil with any other veggies I have that week and roasting them in the oven. (350 degrees, 25+ minutes)
To my spicy food enthusiasts, a sugar-free hot sauce is key. I have multiple favorites but I am about to tell you something big: you can never go wrong with Cholula! Avocado toast (sliced or mashed) topped with a little Cholula and black pepper is my signature snack!
Eating healthy isn’t about depriving yourself or restricting your diet, it’s about changing your lifestyle to reflect your attitude and feasting on greatness.
