1) “Go Green” Nutrition | @monica_parodi
Tuesday is ALL ABOUT THE GREENS! For those of you old enough to remember the cartoon, Popeye, he was onto something! Greens have a beautiful amino acid profile for building muscles!! And if you didn’t know muscle burns fat. For those of you that know about Glutamine supplements for recovery and muscle growth, Spinach is high in Glutamine. Getting it from nature is the BEST way.
Whether you are vegan, vegetarian, paleo or on a high protein diet one food group that everyone agrees is optimal for health and results is GREENS.
So today’s nutrition challenge is to have something green with 3 of your meals and/or snacks.
Keep it simple. A side salad, a green smoothie, garlicky green beans or try these recipes for easy kale chips and baked asparagus. Kale Chips are surprisingly great at satisfying the need for salty, crunchy chips. Don’t judge them by the way they look, try them first!
Now it’s time to sweat and #ShutUpAndTrain!!
