#nutrition... #health... 🎉🎉🎉
what the majority of my days look like... big ol smoothies for at least one meal per day #teamsmoothiessss
💃🏻 i don’t know about you all, but i rarely have the patience to cook in the mornings 😂 so most of my days start with something like this.
smoothies allow you to throw a bunch of healthy stuff (techinal terms here) in a blender and get on with your day.

🥑 it takes some time to find the right combination of flavors and consistency that is palatable... but a good rule of thumb: a serving of fruit and a veggie, some omegas, protein (@corenutritionals
isolate whey is my go-to), and fiber.
#nutrition... what works and what doesn’t? aka what is sustainable and what isn’t?
over the years, there are some things that have been confirmed time after time... these principles guide my nutrition and what works with my life.
👉🏼 not following a #mealplan. never has been sustainable for me. meal plans tend to trigger disordered eating habits and those are scary if you have struggled with nutrition in the past!
👉🏼 flexible dieting. being able to choose what my intake looks for a certain day while recognizing that overall consistency is what is most important. i eat gluten, dairy, artificial sweeteners, carbs at night. i accept i can’t be perfect and that is ok! that is good! perfect isn’t sustainable or realistic. 👉🏼 eating carbs & moderate f*t before lifting makes me feel good. don’t be derp head and forget to eat before a 2 hour lift 😂 (been there...)
👉🏼 diving protein over 3-5 meals per day to spike #mps
(muscle protein synthesis).
👉🏼moderate f*t and moderate carbohydrate intake. no low f*t or low carb quick fixes.
👉🏼 focusing on “whole”, nutrient dense foods 90 percent of the time and eating plenty of fiber to keep me satisfied.
👉🏼 lotssss of fruits, veggies, omega 3’s, and other healthy fats for glowing skin. i notice a big correlation to how my skin looks and the quality of my diet.
