Eggs are great for protein, keeping hunger at bay and sustained energy. Eggs contain choline, an important nutrient for brain function–especially important for babies and pregnant women. Choline enhances different brain and nerve functions and helps the liver remove fat from it to burn for energy.

What’s more, it is also known to boost the health of the kidneys, bladder and pancreas. Eggs contain B vitamins for energy and omega-3’s.

As always, please choose good quality eggs (organic and corn and soy free feed if possible). Who doesn’t love eating eggs? They’re the easiest protein to prepare, low calorie, filling and delicious in various ways.


ganze und halbe avocado isoliert auf weissAvocados are great for the healthy monounsaturated fats, anti-inflammatory properties, and potassium (over double the amount in 1 banana).

Potassium regulates the electrolyte levels in your cells, helps your muscles contract and aids in the waste removal process, just to name a few. I love eating avocados because they’re a great substitution for cheese on salads and meats.

Their creamy texture and rich flavor is great, and their raw fat content is known to help your body absurd up to 3 times as many nutrients in a meal!

Almond milk

Almond milk is a great substitution for dairy and soy milk, and has fewer calories.

Almond milk contains 30% of the recommended daily amount of calcium and 25% of vitamin D in one 8 oz glass. These help with bone growth & strength, improve immunity and cell function. In addition, almond milk provides 50% of your daily requirement for vitamin E, which is important for improving your skin’s health and preventing blood platelets from clogging.

I enjoy adding almond milk to my protein shakes for minimal additional calories and in my grainless granola for breakfast. Make the switch and I promise you will not miss your dairy milk at all.

Macadamia nuts

Macadamia nuts are a great raw for a snack. They can be sliced in a salad, or toasted. The oil of these nuts has become increasingly popular due to its great flavor and high smoke point.

Macadamia nuts contain a high amount of fat, however, up to 86 percent of the fat is monounsaturated. Monounsaturated fat helps to lower cholesterol and decrease your risk of heart disease.

They are one of the only food sources of palmitoleic acid, a fatty acid that may speed up metabolism. This reduces the body’s ability to store fat.

You have probably heard the term flavonoids in reference to red wine? Macadamia nuts also contain these, which which are converted into antioxidants in our body. These antioxidants destroy free radicals and protect our bodies from various diseases.

Fatty Fish

Fatty Fish are powerhouses for omega 3 and protein. Omega 3’s are great for lowering depression, improving brain and eye health, and reducing risk for cardiovascular disease.

Fish also has a low caloric content, so it’s a lean option for those looking to lose excess weight. Some fatty fishes to include in your diet are salmon, mackerel, sardines, herring and tuna. Baked or pan seared fish is a quick lunch or dinner option and goes goes great with salad, fruit, quinoa or steamed veggies.

Almond Butter

Almond Butter with celery is a great snack and contains plenty of fiber, vitamin K and protein. They are a combination that will leave you feeling satisfied and energized until your next meal.

Apples with almond butter are another great option if you have a sweet tooth. It’s also the perfect combination of protein, complex carbs and healthy fat!

While I certainly realize $13 for a tub of almond butter is far from budget, this is the most amazing almond butter on the planet. It’s the brand I use, and a little goes a long way. If you use consume 1 serving a day as I recommend, you can get a few weeks out of  a single tub.

You can thank me after you try it! If you decide to take my word on it, make sure you grab a jar of the cinnamon raisin almond butter,
