What's the most common misconception about eating healthy?
THAT IT IS DIFFICULT AND/OR TIME CONSUMING.
With my clients, I emphasize the importance of establishing STAPLE FOODS and STAPLE MEALS to take the hassle out of healthy living.
In essence a staple food is a go-to food for your healthy-eating-arsenal, one that you enjoy a lot and a staple meal is a meal that you can mix and match in multiple forms to keep things interesting.
Here are some examples of my personal staple foods/meals:
-Protein cookie dough
While I'll admit I'm a creature of habit and can go months eating the same thing for breakfast without it getting old - all of these foods on my list I can eat nearly daily and not get sick of, because they are QUICK AND EASY to make AND I'm able to spice them up however I feel.
With my chicken/protein bowls, I can flavor them to be Mexican, Asian, Mediterranean. I can turn them into a salad, or add rice/pasta. But I know I have my staple proteins and veggies in that bowl, no matter the flavor combo.
The same goes for the wide array of smoothie flavors that can be put together to create a delicious post-workout drink.
By far, my long-lasting, most prized staple food is OATMEAL.
I've eaten oatmeal for years at this point with only small hiatuses here and there. Not only is oatmeal full of nutritional value, it's also great because you can top it with just about anything and have it taste AMAZING.
Let's be real, plain oats alone are bland and not my fav...so I've concocted several oat recipes over the years that turn bland into the bomb dot com!
AND TODAY I AM SHARING MY CURRENT OATMEAL RECIPE WITH YOU!
If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know I've been eating this oatmeal recipe daily since back in the spring - I just can't shake how D E L I S H it is.
