We follow a very simple formula for every dinner…
– Source of PROTEIN (chicken, fish, turkey, beef, pork) that’s about 1.5-2x palm size
– A STARCH/GRAIN such as quinoa, brown rice, whole wheat pasta or potato (approx. 1-1.5 cups, cooked)
– Unlimited VEGETABLES (this dinner example we were lower on the veggies than usual)
– Healthy use of FATS (i.e. butter, coconut oil, olive oil, macadamia oil, chia seed, hemp seed, avocado) in preparation
The picture does not do this dinner justice for the Truth is in the taste buds! What may appear somewhat bland to the eyes is actually buttered asparagus, coconut rice and lemon-ginger chicken using organic butter, organic virgin coconut oil and a 100% natural organic lemon-ginger concentrated extract from Primal Essence.
The best part about “simplicity” is also being able to keep meal prep time to a minimum! There was next to no preparation needed here. While the asparagus was steaming, the rice cooking on the stove and chicken on bake in the oven Daddy enjoyed playtime with the kids while Mommy did her own thing before we all sat down together for dinner. And yes, the kids (Lauren at 18mos, Brayden at 5yrs) ate this too 🙂
It’s been proven that keeping it simple and family-friendly increases adherence and results!
Transformation Tip: We DON’T count calories. We DON’T suffer from “Carb Paranoia” or “Fat Phobia”. We DO monitor protein intake to ensure we’re getting 1.25g/lb of lean body mass per day for our goals. So what’s the “secret”? It’s a combination of the right amount and form of daily consistent exercise, meal frequency, nutrient timing, smart supplemental support and Isagenix.
Create a Healthy Day!
