Through my studies on my road to becoming an Integrative Health Practitioner, a decade in the health and fitness industry, plus all the trial and error I’ve done on the latest and great diets (maybe you remember last year’s #ketofail...) I’ve discovered there really must be something to this whole “eat your greens” thing our parents taught us.
Although I’ve knocked it for years, I’ve seen so much research supporting a plant based diet, specifically the way our bodies are created. However for me, working out 6 days a week, a strictly vegetarian diet would be a struggle (I’m all about animals, insert hamburger emoji here...) so hear me out.
By switching two of my meals to an easier to digest, non animal protein sources (hemp and pea protein, not soy) and doing more eggs and wild caught fish in some of my other meals as well as dropping red meat to only cheat meals, I’ve noticed a HUGE positive impact on my health!
More energy, better digestion, less inflammation, and great immunity have all been icing on the cake for improved longevity and anti aging!
But don’t just take my word for it! Try switching to a vegan based protein, add in a greens powder, drop red meat to once or twice a week or even switch out one of your meat protein meals for fish or eggs for a few weeks!
Let me know your thoughts!!
