Food culture is weird. Mention “eating healthy” & peeps instantly conjure images of salads, egg whites, & ground turkey.
Just being honest: if ya regularly eat egg whites, we just naturally assume you hate yourself (Had a client refer to them as “chicken sperm” & honestly haven’t looked at ‘em the same since – HAHA). Salads? Couldn’t tell ya the last time we crushed one of those either. Ground turkey? Why would ya when you can just buy lean ground beef or bison with the same protein & fat macros.
Not to say there’s anything wrong with any of those – there just may also be WAY more enjoyable ways to crush your macros. Regardless if eating at maintenance or poverty macros, life tends to be a lot more enjoyable if we’re crushing foods we ACTUALLY enjoy, ya diiiiig?

How Do We Assemble Our Bad*ss Bowl of Awesome?
We keep how nutrition SHOULD BE (aka simple as shizz) and go down the list, picking one from each and throw it a bowl. Then start shoveling food in your pie hole like the healthy animal that ya are!
New to kraut & sprouts? Saurkraut is great for gut health (we love @farmhouseculture) a few times a week. Sprouts (broccoli, sunflower, radish, etc) are great for liver detoxification. If liver is happy, hormones are happy, so we’re a huge fan as they’re little micronutrient dense powerhouses.
Seeds on the other hand are little hormone balancing wizards. During follicular phase, try crushing 1T of flax & 1T pumpkin seeds daily. During luteal phase, holler at 1T sesame & 1T sunflower seeds.
