TUNE-IN nutrition TUESDAY TIPS: Quality Foods For Crystal Clear Frequency by Paluna Santamaria

radio

Tuning into quality can sometimes feel like trying to find a radio frequency. You go through days of almost clear and then get some weird feed back and adjust a little, before you get some awful results and then boom- you hit the sweet spot. You find a crystal clear balance of macros and quality foods.

 

We could all hit our recommended macros every day by filling them with lettuce, beer, protein bars, cookies or fried chicken. Choosing foods that “technically” fit into your macros but are filled with crap might give you some kinda view of your results, but it won’t be crystal clear or energizing for your body. You’ll still be getting that radio feedback of mix results. While we know that every now and again you need to eat something less than desirable because you’re out and in a pinch, listen to the feedback you’re getting when you do that and adjust by reaching for that quality whole food when you can to find your perfect station. You’ll be singing with joy when your macros meet quality food. 

Tune-In Nutrition // Tuesday Tips: Pureé by Paluna Santamaria

Let me start by breaking the sad news to you: Oreos are not daily requirements to improve your health (maybe for the two seconds of happiness they'll bring but that's for another post). 

However you do NEED to eat a wide variety of vegetables and some fruits for many reasons including vitamins and fibre. Since I love vegetables and hate cooking I end up eating pretty boring items. I add variety by switching up spices and ways of cooking (mostly steaming or roasting). 

Few months ago I went back to being a toothless baby. Yes, I now blend my fruits and vegetables to make pureé. Don't judge it until you try it!

Bottom image: cottage cheese, apples, stevia and cinnamon as a post workout snack! 

Be creative, add pecans or almonds, sprinkle raw cacao powder maybe some shredded cheese to the veggies.

Do you have a combo you think we'll love? Share it in the comments!
