I've been asked what it means to meal prep and how does it look like? I have to prepare four or five meals, different meals and spend all these hours ... And it's not about that.
Meal prep, it means that you go to the store and you buy several things. One is a whole bunch of different vegetables, the other thing can be some whole grains, like brown rice or semi-grains like quinoa, and two or three different types of proteins that you would like to have. For example, you can have chicken or you can have any kind of fish, or you can have tofu. Then when you go home, you just cut the vegetables, you still fry them, you cook the rice or the quinoa, then you still fry or bake the fish and the chicken. Then put everything in boxes and during the week you just mix!
Good morning everybody. Happy Monday!
Do you have a specific habit for meal prep through the week?
I always recommend to my clients, and myself, to meal prep during the weekend. It's very simple, it makes life easier, and if you have food ready for the whole week, it will be less likely that you make a poor choice about eating something unhealthy, fast and quick.
What I recommend is going shopping Saturday or Sunday, or the day that you have off, and right after shopping drop your things in the kitchen and meal prep right then and there. Don't wait, don't put things in the refrigerator, because it's less likely that you will feel inspired to do it. So right after shopping is the best time to do it.
I hope this tip helps you, and I hope you create a new healthy habit!
It's been an incredibly busy time at Nourish the Brain Institute. The launching of the new program Dynamic Nutrition Specialist is something I've been looking forward to for the last six months as our team has been working to build it from the ground up.
From script writing to filming, to the addition of new team members and website features, there is so much to celebrate!
It all started when I had an idea, that I could not have developed fully without the use of my higher faculties.
One day my mentor, Bob Proctor, helped to realize the importance for the world what I do and how that can help many in the world.
“It would be selfish to keep it for yourself, it is your soul calling, you have to educate people about the importance of what you do, how that can heal their brain, body, and mind."
That phrase took me totally out of my comfort zone but didn’t matter whatever would take I was going to do it and I did it....
December is upon us, the last month of 2018. It is usually the time that we look back and take inventory of the past year, acknowledge our achievements as well as identify the things that we could have done better and set our goals for the new year.
When you look back over 2018, how do you feel about the year as a whole? What, if anything, would you have done differently?
The good news is that with the start of a new year, you get another chance to re-do the things that didn’t go so well in 2018. If one of your 2018 goals was to lose weight or get into better shape, you can start again!
Think of losing weight and getting leaner as a marathon, not a sprint race. The more steadily you lose excess weight, the longer it will last. Why? The reason is very simple. Our brain needs time to make changes and to create and develop new neuropathways that will stick forever. When we make small changes, one at the time, it is easier to stick with this new...
