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.

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

🔥🔥 FIRED UP & FINANCIALLY READY TO EXPLODE is here! Eeeeeeekkkkkkkkkkk and a HALF! I have not been this, well, FIRED UP & READY TO EXPLODE in a LONG while.

https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/firedup

You know when something just comes through you?

And it’s HOLY FREAKING FLOW YES and all the things?

And you FEEL the fire and the gold and the energy and the NOW?

Well,

this is that.

AND THEN SOME.

I’m so proud to invite you in to this brand new course with me! I will be teaching this in a LIVE Facebook group with twice weekly livestream trainings (+ more!) – something I have not done in a very long while.

When you say yes to soul-

life says yes to you.

Fired up and Financially Ready to Explode is the NEXT level wealth and mindset strategy for the already successful woman who is done playing small!

Here’s the thing –

There are very clear reasons why you never quite get to that FULL inhale-exhale state of money freedom, even as your income and lifestyle goes up.

You can bet your sweet ass we gonna talk about those reasons. Understand them. And learn how to roll with them. BECAUSE YOU GET TO BE ABLE TO BREATHE FULLY BEING YOU.

And OMG. So much more. And a LOT of it comes down to understanding that the MONEY WORKS FOR YOU WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND HOW TO ROLL WITH YOUR OWN CHANGING NEEDS.

And? That there are a million freakin’ ways to make money and there is ALWAYS money there that gets to come from flow. So for women like us … one of the biggest FOOLHARDY AF things we can do .. is try to make our business flow respond to things we think should work, things that did work, things that are working for others, etc!

What we need instead is simple:

A clear freaking understanding of where today’s money is at. This week’s. This months. The long-terms. And how to do it all in a way where true wealth growth becomes automated and inherent to who you are. Where you can breathe fully in your creative needs each day. AND, where it’s ALL fun and yes whilst making a crazy impact on those you want to help!

In short?

You need to get FIRED UP AND FINANCIALLY READY TO EXPLODE with me.

And that’s what we’re gonna do here:
