Intermittent Fasting (I.F.) + Day of Eating!



Vegetables and Fruits are slow carbs and should be the bulk of your daily diet for optimal health.

Healthy complex carbs = colorful whole foods

I usually follow the 16:8 method of intermittent fasting;

1:00 PM - 9:00 PM Eating Window

9:00 PM - 1:00 PM Fasting Window

I do NOT count calories!!!!

Upon Waking...


HYDRATE (water, water, water)... decaf coffee or herbal tea... mindful movements (yoga, cleaning the home, nature walks).



I add collagen peptides to my decaf coffee with some unsweetened almond milk. Collagen is really good for your skin, joints, nails and hair!

I add BCAA's to my Water (Branched Chain Amino Acids)

 BCAA's help prevent muscle loss, and build lean muscle tissue, burn fat, recover from workouts (reduce soreness), and this one I like has ashwaganda which reduces stress =)




1:00 PM First Meal! 

I enjoy mixing Intermittent Fasting with eating real, whole foods (mostly vegetables, lean proteins, healthy fats, and berries). I eat 6 egg whites per day (great protein!).


Here are some lunch examples: 


Easy, Delicious Mediterranean Salad (pictured below);
persian cucumbers, cilantro, green onions, tomatoes, lemon juice, olive oil, white vinegar, pink himalayan sea salt, black pepper, cumin.


Smoothies are convenient and super nutritious because you can put so much healthy stuff in the blender! I always put my super greens powder and a big handful of fresh spinach! 

I always keep the fridge stocked with fresh, colorful veggies and berries!


Decaf Green Tea.
So many health benefits to Green Tea!

Protein, Veggies, Healthy Fats, maybe some Berries if I feel like it!

Wild Caught Salmon pan fried with lemon, olive oil, and pink himalayan sea salt, with my favorite salad (red onion, cucumber, strawberries, white vinegar, pink sea salt, black pepper).
