What does "only what you need" mean to you?
To me, “Only What You Need” is a way of life. When it comes to diet,
...the majority of food I strive to incorporate is nutrient-dense.
These foods give my body the nutrition it needs to function optimally and thus allow me to feel my best. I encourage my clients to do the same and I promote this on television and with my online community through the food and recipes I share.
In a world where there are so many distractions and things calling for our attention, I strive to focus my energy on the people and possessions that serve me and bring me joy. I have found that it makes for a happier, more fulfilling way of life.
What's an easy way to incorporate more protein into your diet?
Besides helping to rebuild and repair muscles after exercise, protein also plays a vital role in keeping immunity strong and maintaining hair, skin and nails. In addition to vegetables, PROTEIN is what I strive to incorporate into all my meals and I encourage my clients to do the same. High quality protein adds staying power to a dish and helps stave off hunger until your next meal. Eggs are my go-to source of animal protein because I always have them on hand, and they can be prepared in minutes.
OWYN is an easy way to incorporate high quality, plant-based protein and accommodate those with dietary restrictions. Besides enjoying on the go, I love adding the 100% plant-based protein shakes to smoothies and pancake batter to add flavor and easily up the nutritional profile.
I LOVE the OWYN Smooth Vanilla because it’s creamy, light and a seamless addition to any smoothie (whether I’m going all green or more fruit) and baked goods in lieu of almond milk.
