Change Your Kitchen – Change Your Life!

Today’s post is a guest post by Channing Morales. WARNING! Don’t read this unless you’re ready to stop making excuses about what it takes to look, feel and function your very best!

In recent months I’ve had many people ask me what we eat now and even more people say “you have a lot of time on your hands” – which leads me to admit that I probably prioritize differently to MAKE time for these changes… and my quest is to make the steps to better health EASY and not so time consuming. Believe me, we have just as little time as the next family, with children and both working… and we’re probably on a tighter budget – I can almost guarantee that.

The way we eat is actually pretty simple: get away from processed food. We still have our ‘cheat’ ravioli’s from Costco which are an easy cook up but they are minimally processed with no added sugars. Ice cream (until I get a food processor) and chocolate covered pretzels still make their way into the kitchen as well… I’m human people!

So here is what I tell my clients when they ask about food. I’m not a nutritionist, but I know more about nutrition than the last dietitian I conversed with 2 weeks ago… so I know my $%^t folks… and feel free to add your knowledge too 🙂 especially if its congruent with a traditional real food omnivore lifestyle.

FIRST and most important: eliminate EVERYTHING with the ingredient High Fructose Corn Syrup or Corn Syrup – this is the #1 thing that leads to stored body fat… it DOES not metabolize, even after a workout and just gets stored as BAD fatty tissue. This means any processed food containing HFCS – salad dressings included and I’ll give you a recipe for an awesome dressing that is good on EVERY salad.

Second: Make sure your refrigerator is STOCKED all the time with things to make a salad… this will also force you to get creative and hit up the produce aisle a little more – pick out everything GREEN you can find: avocado, broccoli, sugar snap peas, cabbage, peppers, onion, edamame (its good soy), cauliflower, cucumber, spinach, romaine, red leaf lettuce to start. Mushrooms, zucchini and squash, and asparagus cook up really quickly for a side to any meal.

Third: Eliminate useless grains: chips, bread, wheat pasta, white rice, cereal (waste of calories) Substitute: quinoa (keen-wa), SPROUTED bread (your grocer will help you find this), gluten free/rice pasta, oatmeal and brown rice as your healthier grains only to accompany meals in small portions (appx 1 cup), potatoes. Grains can be debated with my paleo friends – but yes, too much leads to stored fat as well.

Fourth: Get free range eggs (not cage free), free range chicken, and grass fed meats. I know they are a little expensive (note from Kat: wouldn’t you rather pay your grocer/butcher than your doctor?!) but some could argue that “animal protein causes cancer” -it could contribute to the promotion of cancer IF it’s industrialized and grain/soy fed. “The China Study” completely lacks in any information regarding WHERE the meat comes from (which is a whole ‘nother story). One of the rib-eye fillets will be good for 2 meals.These can be found at Whole Foods or Henry’s markets – or at a farmer’s market. YES – grass fed meats are expensive – but so are doctors bills, so pick your battle!

Fifth: Try picking up some good quality dairy cheeses like raw milk cheddar, raw/pastured butter, Greek yogurt (with the fat – it’s high in protein which will metabolize the fat), feta (with the fat), raw milk – QUIT WITH LOW FAT/FAT FREE BS.

Sixth: keep these things on hand: sea salt, almonds! coconut oil, cold pressed olive oil, raw sugar, cinnamon, raw honey, grapeseed oil, organic peanut butter (not fortified with Omega), tons of spices, rice vinegar, fresh garlic and basil, organic jelly and ketchup (if you can’t live without it) and seasonal fruits.

Eliminate soda and juices too… that’s just wasted calories and SUGAR. Even gatorade has tons of HFCS in it! Coffee is FINE with raw sugar, cinnamon and some raw cream/milk.

I’ll add to the list later but these small steps are easy and will start you in the right direction.

Making a quick exit while I’ve got it on the brain : FAT DOES NOT MAKE YOU FAT.

Live Well.

Thanks Channing! Channing is a new friend of mine and shares many of my beliefs on nutrition and healthy living. She’s also been an invaluable help with some of my mothering battles, as her beautiful bubba is a few months older than mine. This little ‘rant’ is something she posted on Facebook, and it really grabbed me. I hope you’ve enjoyed it as well! Connect with Channing on Twitter, or visit her over at Fitorbit.com.

Remember –

Life is Now. Press Play!

PS.

I’m excited to announce my Flow-Led Millionaire Private Client Mastermind Days are back, happening this August (PM me for full deets!) 

Warning! This Mastermind will require you to get TF over your hang-ups around:

* Automated income

* Being seen more, and more boldly

* Adding layers upon layers upon layers of more SELLING

* Ruthless repurposing and re-selling

* Structure, systems, process

* Building a cash machine which pays you on repeat regardless of whether YOU are grinding your fingers to the bone to get it working!

Requirements:

You have an existing business which makes money, delivers a fabulous product or service (or multiple of!) which helps people, you know who you are and who you’re here to serve (while always welcoming deeper clarity!), and you have a proven track record for getting results to those people … even if it’s on a scale, so far, which, frankly, you consider outrageous. Since you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world!

Oh, speaking of which – you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world! And you’re ready to put the wheels on that NOW, and see your revenue – your growth of soulmate audience – your soul-led result-gettin’ systems – and all in all your own badassery – explode, stat!

You’re not afraid of doing the damn work (duh),

but you also know that there’s a simpler way, a more flow way, a more YOU way.

And you’re ready to get down to the nitty gritty of that now, and then roll it out like the take no prisoners mofo you are.

All with me – secret counsel to the worlds most elite game-changers, leaders, and revolutionaries – supporting you to know exactly what to do,

and exactly how to do it,

so you make MORE money,

reach MORE (of the right people),

the YOU way,

having more fun and flow than you ever dreamed possible,

and finally knowing you’re all in on you,

Now!

What you get out of this time together is simple:

* Identified opportunities for money-makin’ – minimum 3, up to 10+ (this is normal in these conversations with me)

* Specific to you simple soulmate audience growth strategy, which you can roll out right away, and will often involve only ‘tweaks’ rather than having to DO anything dramatically extra

* Confidence and inner tools as well as practical steps for improving / adding to / setting up (depending where you’re at) your automated income / funnels 

* Personalised (to your personality / style / lifestyle / skillset) action plan for implementing

* Tweaks you can add in right away to increase sales on existing processes

* Daily / weekly ‘hustle flow plan’ individualised to you

All in all here’s what it comes down to:

>>> You will walk out with a complete action plan tailored to your business, very detailed and also very SIMPLE, with also a complete understanding of what you need to do and HOW to do it, to take you to the next major income level, and beyond.

This will include your next three offers (MINIMUM), up-sells, or funnel ad-ins, FULLY CREATED IN THE TIME TOGETHER!

Plus:

1:1 follow on support to help you implement and follow through.

I love doing this INTENSIVE deep dive work where we pull everything apart all at once, and then nail down the EXACT action steps for each person to take to get more paying customers and clients, who are soul-aligned, coming in NOW, who are also buying more things, because you’ve got all your damn shit in place!

This immersive day together is limited to 5-7 people per event. 

If this is speaking to you PM me here to apply / for more info!
