Paradigm switch

(zuchinni with 1 tsp of olive oil, cumin, sea salt, & cayenne pepper)

The more I talk to clients about nutrition the more I realize that individuals focus too much on what they canNOT eat instead of focusing on the array of foods they can enjoy. For example, yesterday I ate the following:
  • eggs
  • avocado
  • steak stew meat
  • peach
  • almonds
  • walnuts
  • spinach leaf with homemade chicken salad (chicken, purple onion, green bell pepper, apple, canola oil mayo, spicy mustard, habanero relish, seasoning
  • LaraBar
  • grape tomato
  • ground chicken
  • zucchini and squash cooked in coconut oil
  • apple
  • almond butter
  • protein shake
I challenge every one to switch their paradigm of thinking with foods. Focus on all the amazing foods there are to eat. Get creative with vegetables based on what is in season. Fuel your body for success. Try it for 7 days. I guarantee you will see and feel the difference.

Sprint to FGB status: 1 mile down, 9 to go for me. Ran 8x200m yesterday with 30 seconds rest.


  1. This post inspired me to spend some time on Monday afternoon chopping up veggies so they were ready to go when I cooked or needed a snack. Thanks!! :)

  2. YAY!! That is great news, Georgia. Exactly what I want to hear. Keep up the good work! Feel free to keep on asking me questions about your food log.
