Simplicity = Long Term Satisfaction 🔑
When you ‘train’ your body and mind to crave simple (and nutritious) meals...you will always feel satisfied! And when you learn to prepare your food in a way that supports your goals, life just becomes so much easier 💪🏻
The more elaborate and complicated you make your everyday meals, the harder it is to create sustainable satisfaction 💃🏻
When I’m preparing my typical meals, I focus on the following👇🏻
1️⃣ High-Quality Protein 🍗🥩🍖🍳 I personally prefer leaner cuts of meat like sirloin, filet, chicken breast, lean ground beef, or salmon. I like to add my own healthy fats so I can control the amount I’m consuming.
✔️Grilled Organic Chicken Breast
2️⃣ Healthy Fat 🥑🥥 I make sure to get a good balance of monounsaturated & saturated fats throughout the day.
✔️ I rubbed a bit of coconut oil (saturated fat) on the chicken before cooking and served with jalapeño/garlic stuffed olives + added a drizzle of olive oil on my broccoli (monounsaturated fats).
3️⃣ Colorful Veggies 🥦🍆🥬🥗 I’ve always been a ‘volume eater’ and having an adequate amount of veggies/fiber helps me feel full and satisfied...plus, I just like how they taste 🤷🏻♀️
✔️ Steamed Organic Broccoli
4️⃣ Salt & Spices🧂I always use high-quality salt for flavor and to ensure my electrolytes are balanced. I also keep a large selection of spices in my pantry to ensure that I never get bored with flavors.
✔️ I used Redmond Real Salt on everything, Caribeque Seasoning on the Chicken, and Everything But the Bagel Seasoning on the broccoli.
5️⃣ Fruit & Starchier Carbs 🍓🥝🍌🍠🍚 Depending on my activity level, specific goals, and other hormonal factors...I’ll incorporate fruit, potatoes, or other ‘higher carb, lower processed’ foods STRATEGICALLY and with intention.
