Start you with Apple!
Apples are extremely rich in important antioxidants, flavanoids, and dietary fiber. The phytonutrients and antioxidants in apples may help reduce the risk of developing cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease. This article provides a nutritional profile of the fruit and its possible health benefits.
Apples deserve to be called "nutritional powerhouses". They contain the following important nutrients:
1. Vitamin C - a powerful natural antioxidant capable of blocking some of the damage caused by free radicals, as well as boosting the body's resistance against infectious agents, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.
2. B-complex vitamins (riboflavin, thiamin, and vitamin B-6) - these vitamins are key in maintaining red blood cells and the nervous system in good health.
3. Dietary fiber - the British National Health Service2 says that a diet high in fiber can help prevent the development of certain diseases and may help prevent the amount of bad cholesterol in your blood from rising.
4. Phytonutrients - apples are rich in polyphenolic compounds". These phytonutrients help protect the body from the detrimental effects of free radicals.
5. Minerals such as calcium, potassium, and phosphorus.

what type of fuel should you fill it up with? Enter: Clean eating. View a clean eating plan as premium fueling for the body that features nutrient dense, portion-controlled, antioxidant-rich foods and meals free of additives and potential toxins.” “Although no clinical definition exists, clean eating generally refers to how a food is produced. It’s about the path from where it originates (farm = clean; manufacturing facility = not so much) to your plate. Food products with more steps along that path (say, a little road trip to the manufacturing facility) are generally thought of as less clean,” Clean eating isn’t so much a diet as it is a lifestyle that zooms in on pushing out bad foods and slipping in as many nutrient-dense, wholesome foods as possible. “Eating clean is giving your body what it needs to thrive. It’s about getting away from ‘fake foods’ and embracing real ones. When we switch to eating clean, we refresh our eating habits and eat without limiting major food groups or even counting calories! We’ll not only ward off disease by eating this way, but we lose weight, and de-bloat, making ourselves feel comfortable in our body, and look the way we were meant to.
Looking back on my journey to get where I am now, I'm glad I decided to make that lifestyle change and get into the gym people won't believe me when I tell them I've only been working out for two years it's crazy what research and hard work can do. When people ask me about what they should do I always start by telling people that what I do might not work for the next person you have to put that out there you have to find what works for you we all are different and there are different things that has to be done to achieve what you want all I can do is give to on what needs to be done as a standard but remember what I do might not work for the next man one thing I do tell people as a100% garuntee is to not ego lift you will not grow from over training!
Sushi has become a favorite staple in the diets of fitness enthusiasts, and for good reason. Sushi made with tuna or salmon is packed with vitamin D and omega-3s. While other foods also provide some omega-3 support, fatty fish like these two have the highest natural concentrations available of these important fatty acids. The benefits of omega-3s include enhanced cardiovascular function, the ability to stabilize cholesterol levels, decreased inflammation and decreased risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and autoimmune disorders such as arthritis.
Anyone choosing sushi as a part of a healthy diet and fitness protocol should avoid sushi labeled “spicy” or “tempura.” “Spicy” usually means that spicy mayo is incorporated, which is a high-fat, high-calorie condiment. “’Crispy’ or ‘crunchy’ rolls have a deep-fried coating, and unfortunately this includes tempura. The crunch can add 300 to 400 calories per six-piece serving, which is not conducive to any fitness plan.
Otherwise, sushi is low in saturated fat and high in protein, making it a great choice for fitness buffs, especially bodybuilders looking to keep their waist trim while gaining plenty of highly nutritious vitamins and minerals. The high concentration of fish oil found in sushi provides high levels of EPA and DHA omega-3 fats, excellent sources of anti-oxidants. Salmon and tuna are also high in Vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin and antioxidant that offers heart-healthy benefits and may improve immune function.
Some people practice yoga to calm their nerves or take cat naps to recharge. My preferred method to stay happy and positive after a long “omg I’m going to throw my computer” kind of day: Cooking. It’s that hour by yourself while hovering over a pan sautéing and chopping that is oddly meditative. You can block out the world and listen to the sizzle and shake of the pan and just breath. Also...when it’s all said and done, you get to eat a very nice meal! This holiday week should be a busy one so here’s a stuffing recipe that won’t stress you out and will hopefully provide you all with some calm mediative time in the kitchen.
