Keep Food Simple- Part 2
Last week I hit you with “Keep Foods Simple- Part 1.” As promised here is Part 2..
A few more pro trips from yours truly:
- You can buy pretty much every vegetable pre-cut or even frozen and it makes it super easy to drizzle a bit of olive or avocado oil, throw on some seasoning, and toss in the air fryer. Super easy and makes them much more enjoyable to eat.2. Ground meat is very simple to cook up and tasty to add in with anything. Plus! You can cook it in bulk and easily adjust your portions based on what your goal calls for. Same thing with rice. This is an easy staple that you can make in bulk and have ready for the week.
3. Remember, variety is the spice of life! Don’t stick to only chicken and broccoli. Your body needs all the nutrients different foods have to offer. Eat different meats (yes even red meat, even fattier meat), change up your veggies and fruit choices, and mix in some different kinds of grains and starches. (Rice, oats, quinoa, potatoes, oats etc..) Add in some new fats like ghee, or nut butter and avocados.
4. When in doubt, eat veggies. Eat the veggies! Even when I’m macro counting, I do not count my vegetables. They are free! The nutrients you gain from them trump any minuscule amount of calories they contain. Eat them, enjoy them, and learn to use them as a tool to distract from that entire box of Girl Scout cookies. (Here is a good 80/20 split. Bulk up with those carrots and leave some room for one of those cookies)
- Carbs are not the enemy! You need them, they need you. We can stop forcing ourselves to live without each other. Keep them mostly clean whole sources, less processed more real, and enjoy your life again.

Nutrition doesn’t need to be hard.
Keep it simple…
✅Purchase simple ingredients
✅Cook in bulk
✅Get an air fryer
✅ Use the 80/20 Rule. 80% whole foods, 20% treats
*Simple ingredients = Whole ingredients. Things you find on the outer edge of the grocery store. You probably need to refrigerate them, and they will expire with in the next 5-30 days.
*“Meal prepping” could simply mean cooking more than you need right now. You don’t need to get fancy containers, you don’t need to spend 2 hours each Sunday portioning them out. All you need to do is cook more at once so it is available to you when you are hungry. Keep your fridge stocked with cooked food so when the time comes to eat, the barrier to entry is so small and you don’t look for quicker solution to your “nothing to eat here” problem.
*I don’t think I need to explain the air fryer… if you don’t know, just trust me and invest. #IYKYK
*Healthy eating isn’t complicated. Eat more real food than processed food. Stick to mostly whole foods (i.e. from the outskirts of the grocery store) and then add in a little pizazz with whatever it is you enjoy and enjoy it. Think 80/20. 80% whole, 20% pizazz.
I will hit you with some more tips on keeping it healthy next week. Stay tuned!
