The MOST requested topic has been DIET. While, I’m no expert, or dietician, Here’s what on my plate on an average day. I try and limit sugar and bread in my diet, although I believe in cheat days! Here’s a normal day minus birthday parties and taco Tuesday! Also, some key athletic apparel can not only motivate you to work out, but up your casual game. I show some of my favorites below. Don’t forget, a trench, a camel coat, and fun sneakers finish the look. So, without further adieu, here’s my everyday diet:
B : Pumpkin seed granola and almond milk (I buy the variety that is less than 7 grams of sugar) almond milk latte and a green smoothie consisting of kale, sometimes beet, frozen banana, frozen pineapple, coconut water, and chia seeds) * This combo changes daily to keep it interesting
L : Big kale salad, a couple cups of kale, sliced turkey, black olives, feta cheese, and homemade dressing:
1/3 cup grapeseed oil, 3T balsamic vinegar, 3 T sugar, 1 t salt, 1 t crushed garlic,
D : Chicken and Rice – We have a family joke about how often we eat this combo, but you cannot deny how versatile and healthy it is. My kids are always asking, are we having chicken and rice again? I have a million varieties including a soup version. So good!
Snacks: Raw almonds (good protein and packed with wrinkle fighting vitamin E), avocados (antioxidents and tons of good fat), oranges or grapefruit (a great snack to boost vitamin C, and builds collagen, hello younger skin!)
+Keep drinking lots of water, green and dandelion tea in between meals will give you energy.
