We get it. The past few months have been tough, and you may not be feeling like the best version of yourself these days. You may have even gained a few "pandemic pounds," but that's ok - we're here to help! The best part? These aren’t quick fixes.

Hydrate, Sleep, and Work it Out!

First things first: Drink plenty of water, get enough good quality sleep, and exercise on the regular. These are the foundation of healthy living.

Eat Healthy, Carb Conscious Meals

There are so many definitions of healthy these days, it’s hard to know what it even means! Let’s break it down, according to #science.

  • Eat green and non-starchy vegetables, which are great sources of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
  • Get enough protein - it's crucial for overall wellness and weight loss.
  • Don't forget healthy fats, like avocado, nuts, and seeds, at each meal. Fats are the most satiating out of all the macronutrients and add delicious flavor to meals.

Limit Sugar, Booze, and Carbs

Sugar and alcohol are empty calories, meaning they provide no nutritional benefit to you, but pack a lot of calories in a small serving. Sugar and booze also actually promote fat storage, so it’s best to avoid them for the most part if weight loss is your goal. 

Not all carbs are evil, but all carbohydrates do raise your blood sugar and insulin levels. This is fine in normal amounts, but too many carbs can lead to fat storage.

Psst...we’ve got tons of recipes that have no added sugar and are very low carb!
