“A failure to plan is a plan to fail.”
This quote never really resonated with me until I started diving deep into my nutrition journey.
I used to be the girl that needed bread at every meal to feel full or even to feel like it was food. When I was introduced to the paleo diet, I was like hold upppp! This isn’t going to work with just meat and veggies…I’m not going to make it!!
Well, I made it friends, and my ENTIRE perception of food has changed for the better.
Fast forward to 5 years ago when my husband was diagnosed with colon cancer and at that moment, I took an even deeper dive into my understanding of nutrition. We learned really quickly how important it is to pay attention to what you’re putting in your body, what cancer cells feed of off, what foods lower inflammation levels (reduce cancer cells), the list goes on and on! I have such a deeper appreciation for what and how we use food, how often we eat it, and WHAT we put in our bodies.
I get asked all the time how we eat and what we follow.
In all honesty, it depends on the time of the year.
I am a fan of intermittent fasting, whole 30, paleo, and macros. We have done them ALL and I love them all for different reasons. But going back to my quote above…no matter which of those you choose, you have to PLAN. Plan your meals, plan your events you are going to, plan what you are eating when you are eating. Hands down, it’s a recipe for success and keeps you from getting trapped up in the hustle of the week when you’re so tired at the end of the day that all you want to do is eat “something” and that “something” always turns into “one thing” that wasn’t part of the plan because you needed something to eat quick. Plan ahead, know what you’re doing.
My best recommendation is that you identify what your goals are because that really depends on which type of nutrition plan (macros, paleo, whole 30, intermittent fasting) you are going to follow. Comment below if you have any specific questions, I’m more than happy to help you!
In January, we always start our year off with macro tracking so we can dial in our numbers and get back on board after all of the holiday eating.
Here’s 4 easy recipes that I shared on stories yesterday for our meal prep Sunday! Enjoy!
This week is going to be a good one!
Yours in health,
