WELCOME TO WEEK 3 OF THE 6 WEEK NCFIT SUMMER RESET SERIES!
Raise your hand if you have done a health, fitness, or nutrition “challenge” in the past.
Keep your hand raised if you were told to cut out certain foods for the duration of said challenge?
Keep your hand raised if you went back to eating the foods you restricted at the end of the challenge.
Ok - you can put your hand down.
This isn’t the best way to build a healthy relationship with your food! “No sugar! No cheese! No carbs! No legumes! No eating out. No Fun! No No No!”
Summer Reset is not one of these challenges. Our goal is to help you develop healthy and SUSTAINABLE habits. Our goal is not to reinforce the idea that some foods are inherently BAD.
WHAT'S THE CATCH?
No catch. We are going to work on nutrition with absolutely zero focus on what NOT to eat. Instead, we are going to focus on what you should eat, and *poof* - the rest will work itself out on its own! Just trust the process and stay consistent!
Ok so maybe this is the catch… but hear us out!
For this week, the focus is to get a serving of vegetables with every meal. How much is a serving? We are keeping it SIMPLE. No measuring. No need to weigh your food.
We are just aiming for a cupped handful with every meal.
YES - THAT MEANS BREAKFAST, LUNCH, AND DINNER
No Veggies with desert, That would be weird…
TIPS AND TRICKS
- Veggies with breakfast can be tough. Throw it in a scramble! The easiest thing to do is to pick a few favorites and scramble them together with some eggs. Top it off with a little hot sauce and BOOM! What vegetables? You won’t even notice!
- Prepare for the Week! Batch cook some roasted vegetables. Pack a few lunches. Pack the fridge with enough options to last you through the week. Don’t get to a meal without a vegetable option. A little work up front goes a long way in setting you up for success throughout the week!
- Have fun! Eating veggies doesn’t have to be boring. Look up a recipe that looks good, add cheese to your big salad, drizzle some honey and salt on some brussel sprouts. The options are endless. The goal is to eat more veggies! We didn't say they had to be raw, unflavored, and boring.
Have a fantastic week! Don't forget to share your progress on social using the hashtag #LIVEBETTER for your chance at YETI prizes!
