BE PREPARED

6 Jul

Be prepared with your food. You have to know going into any situation how long it’s going to be between meals, how much food you currently have in you, whether you’re going to get hungry or not and what your available options will be.

I’m always packing food and clean mineralised water with me when I’m going out for an extended period.

One example of what I would take with me is organically home grown capsicum and spinach, organic chopped carrot and 3 organic boiled eggs. The vegetables are the carbs; the eggs are the protein and good fats.Each time you eat, you should have a combination of carbs, protein and fats. If I just had the vegetables without the eggs, I know I’d get hungry very quickly.

Every person is different too with what ratios of carbs, proteins and fats they should eat. The best way to find out what ratios are best for you is to keep a detailed food diary documenting what you eat, when you eat it and how it makes you feel an hour or so after eating it. If the food works for your body, you will feel, energised, alert, awake and positive. If the food you eat is wrong for you, you may feel sluggish, tired, bloated, negative, heavy and possibly a sugar high then a massive sugar crash.

I know if I have this snack, I’ll be able to last another 4 or 5 hours before I need to eat again. Preparation time to make this is approximately 7 mins and you can do other stuff while the eggs are boiling. So when people tell me they don’t have time to prepare their meals, I know it’s a BS story.
