🥩 Adequate Protein
Protein should be the largest source of your daily calories. They are the building blocks of life. Everything from your internal organs to your bones and brain are made up of MOSTLY protein.
Choose high-quality proteins (those that are of animal origin and are easier for the body to absorb) including meat, fish, poultry, eggs
🥑 Healthy Fats
Healthy fats are crucial for regulating your hormones and vitamin absorption. They are essential to having balanced hormones, healthy skin, shiny hair and adrenal energy.
🍠 Controlled Carbs
The amount of carbs you need depends on your goals, energy and recovery. Choose complex carbs that give your body fuel and energy
🥬 Nutrient Density
Did your food run, fly, swim or grow from the ground? Aim to stay away from processed foods
