it's summer time...time for vacations...time to pull out the old bathing suit and head to the beach BUT wait are you ready for the world to see what's been hiding under those oversize clothes you've been sporting...WELL if not then make these 12 power foods a part of your daily food intake...when time permits try exercising for at least 30 minutes a day to see better results.*
so here's the list (not in any specific order):
  • Beans (black kidney chickpeas)
  • Turkey & other lean meats (boneless chicken breasts)
  • Olive Oil
  • Almonds & other nuts
  • Spinach & other green leafy vegetables
  • Eggs
  • Peanut butter all natural (hopefully there will be no more recalls)
  • Whole grain foods
  • Instant Oatmeal
  • Raspberries & other berries
  • Extra protein like whey or soy protein (add it to a smoothie)
  • Dairy (low fat)

with this list of 12 power foods you can make endless recipes. one thing that i love making is boneless chicken breast lightly seasoned with salt pepper and garlic seared in olive oil for about 5 minutes on each side on top of a bed of spinach topped with sliced strawberries and almonds. that recipe is great for a light dinner. for lunch you can make a turkey sandwich on whole grain bread with a cup of milk or water and some blueberries. and for the most important meal of the day BREAKFAST have a favorite consists of 1 banana 6 strawberries frozen or fresh 1 cup of ice 1 cup of apple juice and vanilla flavored whey will get you off to the perfect between meals you can snack on peanut butter and apple slices or nuts and berries.
