Healthy Food List and Snacks


Healthy balanced is the goal to looking and feeling your best!  Make sure you are eating the right amount of protein, carbohydrates and fats for your body and your goal.  If you need help figuring out what  your body needs feel free to contact me and I can help you figure it out!  Fill your plate with lean protein, lots of vegetables, a whole food carbohydrate and have some fruit too.  Focus on eating whole real food 90% of the time, and allowing some room for your favorite treats, lets be real we all have those cravings once in a while, and it really is okay to save about 10% of your calories for a treat now and then.  Make sure you are drinking plenty of water, a good rule of thumb: about half your body weight in ounces (example: 150 pound person should get about 75 ounces in water daily).
This is not an all inclusive list but is a good place to start!  Try some of my healthy recipes too, trying new things can really help keep you on track!
