I have got to brag on my amazing wife Beth! This tip, is inspired by her. On I believe on Thursday, I came home and Beth was making pie crusts, or so I thought. When I asked her what they were for she said, Mother’s Day. She was making quiches, she knew, she nor my mother would want to cook on Mother’s Day. So she planned ahead and prepared something awesome.
What about you? Do you tend to be rushed in the morning? You can make your breakfast ahead of time and be awesome like Beth. Normally, Beth likes to make egg casseroles in a baking dish (glass), cut them in squares and freeze or refrigerate them. Then all you have to do is just heat up one square every time you want to eat one and voila! Super easy and very fast. It can get you fed and out the door in just a few minutes.
Here is a link to a video to make frittatas (which are great to make ahead of time!): www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7h9cR1Geck&feature=youtu.be
Did you know that about 95% of Americans aren’t getting enough Omega 3’s in their diet!?
As you probably know if you have been following my posts, not all fat is created equal! Omega 3’s are on the front line of defense against inflammation – which as you may have heard, is at the root of nearly every disease. I got this list below from a one of my favorite Strength Coaches, Dan John. Even if you are skeptical about Omega 3’s, consider this, even if a quarter of what is listed is true, why wouldn’t you get more of it?
So what makes omega-3 fats special? Studies show Omega 3’s can:
In other words, your body needs these healthy fats to function properly!
Here’s the catch….your body isn’t capable of producing them on its own. This means you MUST consume them as a part of your regular diet.
What are the best sources of omega 3’s?
Here are a few: mackerel, salmon, cod liver oil, herring, oysters, sardines, anchovies, tuna, walnuts, grass-fed beef, organic eggs, flax seeds, chia seeds, and hemp seeds.
You may even prefer to take an Omega 3 supplement if you’re not getting enough naturally in your diet. That is what I do.
If you want to learn more about Omega 3’s, here’s a great article: authoritynutrition.com/omega-3-guide
So there you have it!
Are you up for focusing on Omega 3’s and eating more Omega 3-rich foods (or supplementing) every day this week?!
