Meal Ideas - What the Heck Should I Eat?

  • Focus on one-ingredient foods

  • Focus on quality over calories and the quantity piece will naturally fall into place.

  • Create a hunger-crushing combo: protein, fat and fiber.

  • Protein: the most satiating micronutrient

  • Meats, seafood, tempeh, Greek yogurt, eggs, beans

  • Fat: build a better brain and calm your nervous system

  • Olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, nuts, avocado, butter, and seeds

  • Fiber: feel fuller longer and maintain consistent blood sugar

  • Focus on veggies first then fruits and fiber-rich grains like oats

  • What about carbs?

  • Focus on complex carbs like fruits, vegetables, potatoes and beans. Always pair carbs with protein, fat and fiber. Try to avoid naked carbs

  • What about beverages?

  • Stick to water, black coffee, seltzer waters and unsweetened teas. Sweeten with fruit. Avoid artificial sweeteners.
