My athletes and lifestyle clients always ask: “how should I be eating?”
This could be a complicated question with a long answer and a huge list of diet changes. Except, that sucks, and experience says so will the outcomes. Now I answer that question with one statement and a google search term.
STATEMENT: I want you to be a vegetarian that eats a little bit of meat.
WEB SEARCH: “Grain bowl” and view the images.
A grain bowl represents everything good about eating.
- 80% plant-based
- High in fiber
- Tons of colors for a variety of phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals
- Can be made with no cooking skills
- Requires no recipes
- Preps, packs, and travels fantastically
- Uses a mixture of canned, frozen and fresh produce
Perhaps the most important of all is that grain bowls are a flexible style of eating that lets you choose meat, dairy, fish, or not, without feeling deprived or some complicated recipes.
There a few pieces of kitchen equipment than make a grain bowl life way easier though.
- Julienne peeler – who needs knife skills
- Benriner Japanese Slicer – quickly thin slice anything
- Vegetable Peeler – to make ribbons
