Let’s talk about food!!!

First of all, we apologize for taking so long to write a post, but life got really busy. We moved to a different apartment, Carol started a new job full time and she is starting MBA soon. Rich besides the move, he was having perhaps a mid life crisis (LOL), but you can check his blog for more info.

Swim workout!

So we are returning to blog more often and today we decided to talk about FOOD! Food is our favorite thing to talk about it and  that is one of the  biggest concern for many people that want to be healthy (including us). So we tried to break down our grocery list for the week, especially now that training is starting to ramp up. Is worth to say that we eat very clean, in fact, the conception of clean eating for most of you might be different, please check here to see what Rich has to say about clean eating. So here is our list of we mainly consume and where we buy:

Produce: Cauliflower; Carrots; Kale; Spinach; Eggplant; Onions; Garlic; avocados; zucchini; squash; Red peppers-  we get the produce from a small farmers market on Lake worth road called Sofia Farmers Market.

Protein: Grass fed ground beef, sirloin grass fed steak; organic free range chicken from trader joes, pasture raised eggs and pasture raised ghee from fresh market, Pederson Farm bacon (the only one without sugar), only Whole Foods have it.

Coconut products and etc: Sambazon acai sugar free, Native Forest coconut milk (unsweetened), Native Forest coconut cream (Rich is addicted), raw artisana coconut butter (Carols Addiction), Nativas Naturals Maca powder and  365 organic coconut oil, this we only find at Whole foods.

Using fat as fuel:  vespa CV 25 (Rich) and  Vespa Jr (Carol)- You can get here.

– Water and about 4 tablets of Nuun.

Of course we can’t leave out the occasionally Vega Maca Chocolate bars (check video below).

That is pretty much what we eat, its very simple and very effective. FAT IS YOUR FUEL!!!

We understand  that food is some sort of an emotional thing for a lot of people, and it was for a long time for us too. After learning about so many approaches (and experiencing their pitfalls), we learned that there is nothing better than moderation, and specially wholefoods!!! You can eat pretty much everything, if you don’t overdo, but of course, the cleaner you eat, the cleaner your body (mind and soul as well) will be and will thank you in the future. We see our food choices as our “health insurance”, we will explain more later.

On the next post we will go deeper and share a few books we have learned a lot with, but before, a funny movie to lighten your day: Rich and the delicious Vega chocolate bars (occasional treats!)

Blessings!!

Rich and Carol
