💪 Fix your nutrition in 3 steps 

It’s Tuesday afternoon. And because it’s supposed to be 97 today, you’re going to find me hitting balls in the climate-controlled luxury of the gym during lunch. 

For the record, 97 is ridiculous for late September here in St. Louis.  

So today, we’re going to switch gears. And focus on what we’re putting in our bellies.  

If you’ve been following us for any time, this will come as no surprise… 

…instead of over-complicating our already-complex lives, let’s focus on keeping things SIMPLE. 

Let’s talk about your MEALS…because a lot of times we’re led to believe that the more complicated and “fancy” our nutrition is, the better. For now, put the food scale back in the pantry. 

Here’s one GREAT way to keep it simple: 

Come up with a “food formula” that works for you, that includes meals that: 

  1. You love 
  1. Are simple and easy to put together 
  1. Align with your goals 

And simply rotate meals that follow that formula throughout the week! 

You do NOT have to reinvent gourmet meals every time you sit down to eat…or constantly come up with new ideas every day. 

Many moons ago, our co-founder Ryan had a “real” job. And he ate the same lunch for 6 months. 

That’s a little extreme. But our palettes are just fine rotating through the same 6-10 meals.    

Having a go-to formula works in several different ways: 

  • It simplifies your shopping and food prep. 
  • It removes “decision fatigue,” which can happen when you’re forced to make choices all day long. The more decisions you make, the harder it becomes to make good ones! 
  • It helps stop that overwhelmed feeling you can get when you’re wondering whether your choices are “right” or “wrong” or “good” or “bad.” 
  • It saves you time and energy.  
  • And helps you stay on track.   

I’m lucky because my wife Sue prepares most of our meals. But, the trickle effect works for me because it makes her life easier. 

And THAT is what it’s all about.
