- Check out 100 Days of Real Food Blog, she has a lot of great recipes all made with “Real Food,” including whole wheat pizza dough; whole wheat tortillas; Salad Dressing; Energy Balls. She also has a great app called “Prepear” that you can use to plan your meals out – just an overall great resource!
- Make a large batch of rice or quinoa on Sunday and use in your lunches and recipes throughout the week!
Things to Consider when buying:
- Choose Nut Butter that is only Nuts + Salt (Kirkland Organic, from Costco is my choice)
- When buying Greek Yogurt, choose plain and add a little honey + fruit for sweetness (Fage 2% is my favorite)
- Choose a trail mix without chocolate, or make your own with almonds + Craisins + sunflower seed + pumpkin seeds, and a little granola
- Check out Metronome Wellness for the list of dirty dozen + Clean 15 Produce
- I love me some Costco & Trader Joe’s. Both have a good variety of affordable, organic food.
- As much as I love fresh fruit and veggies, I must admit, I buy a lot of frozen, it’s nice to always have on hand and know that it’s going to keep.
- When time allows, you can’t beat a good farmer’s market or roadside stand for the best local produce around!
