What Should I Eat?


In plain language, base your diet on garden vegetables, especially greens, lean meats, nuts and seeds, little starch, and no sugar. That’s about as simple as we can get. Many have observed that keeping your grocery cart to the perimeter of the grocery store while avoiding the aisles is a great way to protect your health. Food is perishable. The stuff with long shelf life is all suspect. If you follow these simple guidelines you will benefit from nearly all that can be achieved through nutrition.  (Content courtesy of http://www.crossfit.com/cf-info/start-diet.html)

 

Day in the life of Matt and Cherie Chan from CrossFit Verve from CrossFit HQ:

“So we’re here in the Chan household, and we’re at prep day,” says Cherie Chan of CrossFit Verve, located in Denver, Colo. “We try to do this once a week when we have time to prep a bunch of meals or a bunch of food that will make it super easy for us to stick to what we do every day: Zone-Paleo foods.”

Join Cherie and husband Matt for an inside scoop on their nutrition. Today they shop and begin preparation for their meals.

Cherie adds a great tip for fruit and vegetables: prep them right after you buy them.

“If I put these in the fridge the way that they are after buying them from the grocery store, what notoriously happens is I will waste about half of them because I wouldn’t have had the time to chop them and prepare a meal,” she says.

Matt and Cherie Chan show how a little planning, organization and preparation can help you keep on track with your nutrition.
