Eating for one… I used to throw away so much food at the end of each week. How can people possibly eat for just one? Over years of practice, I’ve figured out the magic equation.
*preps perfectly for one, becomes a math wizard*
Let’s sum up (pun intended) my food lifestyle in 3 words. Notice I don’t say a diet, because it’s not. It is my way of life.
Rainbow, fats, protein.
my go-to staples:
+probiotics– -benefits- amazing for your gut & regulating hormones!
Wildbrine probiotic sriracha. A sneaky way to get in your probiotics & Wildbrine has a lot of fermented options too.
Ultimate Flora with 15 billion probiotics. I get mine at Sprouts.
+ apple cider vinegar -with the mother (-benefits- read all about that here)
+arugula & dark leafy greens -benefits- Cancer Protection. …high in Vitamin K which is great for your heart, bones & skin.
+asparagus–benefits- helps decrease bloating, regulate bowl movements & helps transport glucose from the bloodstream to your cells.
+cauliflower rice–-benefits-tons of vitamins and minerals, well known as a cancer fighter.
+avocado –benefits- high in fat to keep you full longer, great for your skin and loaded with nutrients. I eat one mini avocado a day!
+frozen acai packets–benefits- no sugar fruit? yes. please. & it contain a lot of antioxidants!
+tone it up protein (vanilla) -benefits- while being a lean protein it also will help keep you full and repair muscles. It also has very minimal ingratiates so you know what you are putting your body. PLUS, it tastes great.
+mini peppers –benefits–helps fight inflammation and are loaded with vitamin A & C, which is also great for your skin.
+garlic -benefits- umm besides making food taste amazing, it can also help prevent colds.
+onion -benefits-helps regulate blood control
+banana -benefits-since I eat mostly paleo I love having healthy carbs, being rich in potassium and magnesium bananas can help lower blood pressure & are good for your heart.
+zucchini -benefits- very nutrient dense, can be put in most anything ( I use them in my smoothies too!) and are said to be good for your overall health.
+raw nuts, walnuts & almonds -benefits- keep you full longer, full of fiber, great for you skin & leveling blood sugar.
+cashew milk -benefits- high in vitamin k it can be good for bone loss & it’s lactose free.
+turmeric -benefits-natural pain reliever and inflammation fighting machine! I put it in everything. Add a pinch of black pepper to help increase absorption!
If you catch me in the grocery store without these things — I’ll buy your groceries ?
a peek into my daily menu
+matcha with half cashew milk, half water. Mix in Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, cinnamon, turmeric & small amount of honey.
+banana with handful of walnuts or almond butter
+huge salad with lean protein and vibrant colored veggies
+pick me up smoothie – tone it up protein, ice, water, acai packet & half an avocado and half cup of cauliflower rice. Add turmeric
+dinner is either a homemade soup or salmon & veggies
my quick & dirty tips on how you can prep for one & eat healthy
+shop the perimeter of the store. I usually only go in aisle for almond butter, nuts & broth.
+right when you get home always wash & chop your veggies, ASAP. It sets the mood & will make the rest of your weeks meals faster & easier.
+sometimes I will slice my bananas to freeze & and lay them flat in a ziplock baggie, for snacks and smoothies.
+grill your lean protein – I prefer grill vs oven or stovetop, this is up to you!
+slice & sauté sweet potatoes – I add these to my macro bowls or save them as a side with dinner.
