Food Facts by @meowmeix

Sugar vs. sugar 🍓 I know I’m team right side most of the time but left is fine if you want to TREAT yourself 🙌 . This is just a friendly reminder why going for the right side (strawberries) on a daily basis will do your body some good! Because nobody is eating 12 cups of strawberries in one sitting but it’s very easy to drink a whole strawberry milkshake . The left side has literally 0g of fiber. While the right side has a whooping 34.8g fiber 🤪 That part of the reason it’s so hard to eat that many! . Displayed: 1 medium strawberry shake vs. 12 cups whole strawberries . P.S. I’m now the proud owner of a crap ton of strawberries. P.P.S. That shake has been sitting in my freezer for months from other IG posts lol team recycle. . . . . . #cleaneating #healthychoices #healthyeating #healthyfood #weightloss #cleaneats #fitfood #instahealth #nutrition #mealprepmonday #glutenfree #getfit #paleo #healthyliving #determination #healthylifestyle #active #mealpreprecipes #exercise #fitnessaddict #cardio #mealprepsunday #strawberry #strong #train #cleanfood #fruit #protein #weightlossjourney #organic

Some of my favorite protein sources! 🍳 It’s important to vary your protein sources to get the different benefits from each. . Also, I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to buy pasture-raised chicken & eggs, grass-fed beef & bison and wild salmon 🍃 It’s not the meat that has inflammatory properties but if they’re fed a diet of grains & antibiotics with little to no sunshine that can be detrimental to your health!❤️ . Below is a breakdown of the some of the different benefits of each protein source. P.S. if you want some plant based sources of protein next leave a comment below. . Pasture-Raised Chicken: high protein source, lean, a good source of vitamin B6 & niacin. (Source 1) . Wild-caught salmon: high in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, selenium, vitamins B3, B6, B5 and potassium. (Source 1) . Grass-fed beef: high in conjugate linoleum acid which has been shown in studies to lower cancer risk (source 2 & 3) & packed with omega-3 fatty acids & antioxidant vitamins. . Grass-fed bison: a lean source of protein, high in vitamin B12, zinc, selenium, niacin & iron. (Source 4) . Pasture-Raised Eggs: high in choline, omega-3 fatty acids, contain carotenoids which are important for your eyes (lutein and zeaxanthin) plus packed with more vitamins & minerals. (Source 5) .

Calorie dense vs. nutrient dense. Which one would you pick? 🙌 . While it’s great to treat yourself, being aware of how quickly calories can add up can help make sure you’re not hindering your goals.

My day of eating (I’ll probably eat a little more): Breakfast – Paleo protein pancake + 1/2 cup blueberries Snack – half a grapefruit + handful of almonds + @foursigmatic lion’s mane Lunch – Egg salad jar Supper – Lamb, tomatoes, + purple cauliflower Dinner – Chicken soup Night snack – dark chocolate + four stigmatic cocoa . . . . . #cleaneating #coffeetime #cafe #coffeelover #healthychoices #healthyeating #healthyfood #coffeeaddict #weightloss #cleaneats #fitfood #instahealth #nutrition #mealprepmonday #coffeegram #glutenfree #getfit #latte #paleo #instacoffee #healthyliving #determination #healthylifestyle #espresso #active #caffeine #bbg #exercise #fitnessaddict #coffeeshop
