A Day of Healthy Eating

Happy Friday! I’m so glad the weekend is here. This has been one crazy week. I normally have time to cook fresh food, but I’ve spent too many hours in the gym. My creativity in the kitchen may be halted, but the flavor lives on. I put together a whole day of healthy eating for you guys so you don’t have to take the extra time to plan and prepare. 🙂 The recipes are simple and can be modified to your tastes! Enjoy

Breakfast: Greek Yogurt Recipes

Snack: Protein Shake

Lunch: Grilled Chicken, 1 cup Sweet Potatoes, 1 cup steamed broccoli

Snack: Protein Bar

Dinner: Grilled Fish, ½ cup brown rice, 1 cup asparagus

Eat the Seasons

With all the diet trends out there, it’s hard to know what is actually good for you! My motto is keep it simple. Eat your veggies and make sure you have an adequate protein intake. However, I’ve realized you have to be selective even when it comes to healthy foods. Most fruits and vegetables are not in season year round. Chemicals are added to produce so it can be available to us every season. But how do you know which fruits and vegetables to eat? You may have heard of the clean 15 or the dirty dozen, but those lists aren’t specific to location.  Check out this website that lets you find produce in season specific to your region! http://www.sustainabletable.org/seasonalfoodguide/

One of my favorite foods available now is asparagus. This is one of the best recipes I’ve used. Don’t go too heavy on the parm 😉 http://allrecipes.com/recipe/214931/oven-roasted-asparagus/?internalSource=hub%20recipe&referringContentType=search%20results&clickId=cardslot%2017
