WHAT'S YOUR DIET?

Balance, moderation and clean eating AKA minimally processed foods. If I were to get a little more
specific: high protein, low carb… and a good amount of HEALTHY fats. I also avoid SUGAR as much as I
can.


WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON BEING VEGAN AND/OR VEGETARIAN?

I have absolutely nothing against it! All power to you. My sister has been vegetarian since she was 12
and vegan for the past 10 years, so I’m pretty familiar with that lifestyle. I also eat at vegan restaurants
all the time because I love consuming vegetable based meals! Veggies are the core of clean eating in my
opinion, however I just love a good meat and cheese board. Girls gotta live.


People get so wrapped up in the meat/dairy debate that they sometimes forget the fact that the real
issue is found amongst ALL diets: consuming heavily processed foods and not enough clean, nutrient
dense meals. Also… balance and moderation above all.


WHAT'S YOUR IDEA OF HEALTHY FATS/CARBS?

Good source of healthy fats: avocado, coconut oil, olive oil, ghee, whole eggs, fish, nuts.

Good source of carbs: sweet potatoes, quinoa, legumes, whole grains.

Good source of protein: (organic) meat, chicken, fish, eggs, beans, yogurt, nuts, seeds.


DO YOU DRINK PROTEIN SHAKES?

YES! Protein in liquid form is most beneficial POST-workout. Your muscles will then soak up the nutrition
for muscle recovery and growth. My favorite protein powder & protein drink brand: Orgain.

Easy protein shake combo: protein powder + PB powder + nut milk + spinach + frozen banana + frozen berries + ice


HOW MANY MEALS/SNACKS DO YOU EAT DAILY?

Typically 3 main meals, with 2-3 healthy snacks throughout the day.

My go-to healthy snacks are found right in The Recipe Book!


WHAT DO YOU DRINK on a daily basis?

Water, water with lemon, sparkling water… and then more water. That is IT.
I do drink caffeine and alcohol (in moderation… usually) but NEVER with any added sugar.

If I have iced tea, it’s unsweetened…
If I have coffee, I drink it or with a splash of *unsweetened* coco milk
If I have alcohol, my order is tequila blanco with soda water and fresh limes. No syrup or juices added
EVER! (sugary cocktails = hangovers from hell).

Avoiding sugar for me is not about weight-loss, although when I cut it out for an extended period of time
I drop weight like a hot potato…
