Two months ago I wrote about my experience with InsideTracker and shared some of my results. Since then I’ve had a chance to implement changes, especially when it comes to my nutrition. Here are my top 5 nutrition changes.
1. Chocolate Almond Milk
I don’t really drink milk that often and had only tried almond milk a few times in the past. I purchased chocolate almond milk for the first time a few weeks ago and it’s SO delicious! Chocolate almond milk is fantastic in smoothies, or you can just drink it plain, and it provides a healthy dose of Vitamin D. I enjoy a glass after a workout as well.
It’s not that I hate eggs, it’s just not my first choice when it comes to breakfast food. I’m a carbaholic but I’m trying to change this! I’ve been making a point to eat eggs at least twice a week for breakfast. I like that eggs also provide a good source of protein so I stay fuller longer. Next week I’m going to try hard boiled eggs. I haven’t had those since I was a kid!
Avocados are good for helping with inflammation. I’ve been more diligent about adding avocados in my smoothies. Not only does it make the smoothies creamier, but it also provides a good dose of healthy fats. In addition, I’ll use any excuse to get extra fruits in my diet.
4. Pecans and Almonds
I’m more of a cashew type of girl, but pecans and almonds will help reduce my LDL cholesterol. Right now it’s in the normal range, but I need to bring it dow a few points to be in the “optimized zone”. I also like to have a handful of these nuts for a quick snack (much better than eating junk food)!
5. Dark Chocolate
Dark Chocolate (REAL dark chocolate) helps to increase iron levels and it’s a nice treat! It’s dark chocolate so no further explanation is needed, lol 🙂
