{WIAW} The Power of Food

Happy Wednesday Friends!

Guys, I’m totally obsessed with my new book I mentioned Monday, The Power of Food. Like I’ve probably told all of my coworkers about it 5 times and mentioned it every two minutes to B and my friends & family.

The Power of Food | Britt's Blurbs

Adam Hart just has a way to connect with you (the reader) so well! The beginning of this book is all about his background and how he found his health and happiness. Not only did he find it through food but through his mind. Your mind is a powerful tool that many of us (myself included) do not use to the full extent. He lays out action steps to achieving the life you desire. One thing he constantly stresses is visualizing your intentions every day. “What are your 5 year intentions?” I have so many goals and ideas for myself whizzing around in my head that I need to capture that energy and visualize the process every day to achieving those goals.

Besides the life inspiration– the REAL FOOD recipes he provides sound delicious! He also talks about ADDING power foods to your diet instead of taking foods away. As you know, I don’t believe in restrictions when it comes to living a healthy life. It’s all about the 80/20 rule and finding your balance. He mentions to start with a core group of power foods- chia seeds, hemp seeds, ground flax seeds and hemp seeds- and add them to anything you eat. EVEN PIZZA. You’ll become full more quickly and your body will rep the nutritional benefits of the power foods. Soon you’ll be craving those power foods and will want to eat just that to be fueling your body properly.

I won’t go into all his secrets so BUY HIS BOOK. {No I did not get paid to say that nor did I receive the book for free. This is my honest opinion because I believe this book could be a powerful tool for people.}

So yesterday I took a look at my eats and noted where I could ADD real food into my day.

Mid-Afternoon Snack | Britt's Blurbs

Since I was on the run for work during the afternoon, I had to make due with a Luna Bar. They’re fairly clean but still processed. I need to really try and make more of an effort to prep enough granola bars on Sunday to last for a few weeks.

Power Foods I Could Add: Homemade granola bar or trail mix

{Dinner}

Kale Chips | Britt's Blurbs

A few kale chips when I got home before winding down from the day and getting dinner ready.

And for dinner–> Baked cod, sweet potato & asparagus. Mmm real food!

Power Foods I Could Add: Perhaps a nut pesto over the cod. However, I was pretty happy with the power foods in this meal.

I encourage you to take a look at your daily eats today and see where you can ADD POWER FOODS to your day!
