optimize your #metabolism

To optimize your metabolism, you FOOD NEEDS TO BE A PRIORITY. You need to eat the right kinds of foods and eat enough of those foods

Tip #1:

Eat plenty of healthy fats. Healthy fats like avocados, nuts and seeds, along with wild, fatty fish are great to boost metabolism. My favorite “gasoline” is medium-chain triglycerides or MCT oil, which is found in coconut oil. 

I love the brand Bean for their MCT with collagen powder in their pumpkin spice flavor. I use one scoop in my morning coffee and it tastes delicious!

Tip #2:

Go for color. One thing nearly everyone concurs with is that we need to eat plenty of fresh vegetables and other plant foods. Colorful, antioxidant-rich plant foods become essential for health and reducing oxidative stress.

Each week to save on time, I buy a bunch of pre-cut and pre-washed veggies from Safeway’s ready made section. I get mixed peppers, brussel sprouts, onions and squash and then I make a pretty easy sheet pan of roasted veggies. 

I drizzle with extra virgin olive oil (about 1/4 cup) and then I season with salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste, red pepper flakes to taste and 1 tsp dried oregano. I put the sheet pan into the oven at 400 degrees F for about 30-40 minutes, flipping the vegetables once or twice during cooking. I monitor cooking time and remove the sheet pan when the veggies are tender but not mushy.

Tip #3:

Limit sugar and flour. High-glycemic, high-carb foods put tremendous stress on your metabolism. Swap out some of your favorite treats for their low-sugar alternatives. My go-to for my sweet tooth is the product called SmartSweets Sweet Fish. I order this on Amazon. Sweet Fish are a chewy, delicious candy free from sugar alcohols, artificial sweeteners and added sugar.

NO GUESSWORK! ONE BAG = ONE SERVING, AND: 

  • 92% less sugar than other fish
  • 3 grams of sugar for the whole bag!
  • 44% less calories than the other fish
  • 13 grams of plant-based fiber
