Essentials: Health

1.)   Almonds – Natural power and energy. Almonds are a great source of protein and good for your mid day snack which helps to curb your appetite. It’s better to snack on some almonds then a bag of chips, plus 6g of protein from 20 almonds is pretty daym good.

2.)   Green Tea – I’ve cut out coffee and soda especially as a means of caffeine to keep me awake. It has a lot of antioxidants, and good for your digestion as well as metabolism.

3.)   Egg Whites – Packed with protein, and doesn’t have high fat content. Perfect for losing or gaining weight. Egg White Omelets/Egg Whites on Wheat or Multigrain Toast/Egg Whites and some old bay or salt. You can occasionally have some of the yolk, but its high in cholesterol. Also, stop frying your eggs in oil! Either get egg beaters egg whites which don’t need oil, or hard boil your eggs.

4.)   Steaming Pot/equipment – Most diets fail, because people neglect to incorporate enough (if any) greens into their daily intake. Cold raw veggies can be hard to swallow sometimes, so having a steamer brings some life, flavor, and great texture. Broccoli, Spinach, Asparagus are just a few of my top favorites.

5.)   Water Bottle – Nalgene Bottles are great for example to keep with you at all times. You should be drinking 6-8 cups of water a day. It helps you feel full, hydrates your body especially your muscles, and cleanses/flushes  a lot of waste non essential  impurities within your body.
