Sports Day and 19 foods to always have on hand
Sports Day was held inside to keep the screams away from the neighbors. And even better, we only had about 1/3 of the gym to work with. No worries, I am a master of my craft. We played hockey, rowed, canoed, swam, played basketball, raced horses (a crowd favorite), did football agility drills, and did some archery all in the comfort of our rain free gym. Then the last thing we did was a belly blasting (not to be confused with the 21 Day Belly Blast nutrition program) core workout. Great job by you all today, the inside is not the most fun but you put in work today! We should be outside for the remainder of camp, so maybe we can put those sweet gloves to use! If you haven't been this week, I got you all some gloves so don't forget to grab them when you come.
Casino Day will be tomorrow. Gambling, cigars, drinks on the house it's gonna be awesome! You will never know how awesome unless you make plans to attend. There will be Blackjack, Poker, slot machines, craps, all the big games will be there so you should too. We got 3 days left you got this!
My hero Dr. Chris Mohr has another good tip for you. Here is his list of the 19 foods you should always have on hand.
- Raw Nuts — almonds, pistachios, walnuts, pecans
- Canned salmon
- Nut butters (almond, peanut butter, etc)
- Rolled oats
- Olive oil
- Spices to flavor foods without sugar, calories, or fat
- Beans — all types
- Wild fish (salmon is a favorite)
- Free range eggs
- Fruit (all types)
- Veggies (all types)
- Brown rice
- Sweet potatoes
- Frozen fruit (great for smoothies)
- 100% grass fed beef
- Free range chicken
- Herbs to flavor foods without sugar, calories, or fat (but loads of nutrients instead)
That list is made entirely of lean proteins, good carbs, healthy fats, and for the most part is very easy to prepare. The more you set yourself up for success the better you do. How many times have you some home, looked for something to eat, found nothing prepared, and ate some crackers/cookies/Little Debbie type stuff that is handy and easy? Probably pretty often. Have cut up vegetables, fruits like bananas, grapes, and apples, nuts, etc... that will help you from grabbing those other items. Convenience drives choice more often than taste when you get in a hurry.
