Feeling a bit overwhelmed with macros? We’ve got you! Our coaches gave us the inside scoop on what they always have on hand in their pantries and what they can’t wait to get their hands on this Spring.
If you’re new to macros, Coach Gabby recommends making lists of the protein, carb, and fat sources you enjoy eating. “I always have chicken and shrimp on hand for protein, rice, potatoes, and pasta for carbs, and olive oil and avocado on hand for quick fats.”
Coach Katie always has a variety of veggies in her pantry, from broccoli and carrots to bell peppers of all colors. She also makes sure to keep rice cakes and deli meats around for quick and easy meals.
The key to getting the most out of your macros is eating as many nutrient-dense foods as you can. “My favorite nutrient-dense food is salmon!” says Coach Gabby, “It’s packed full of omega 3’s.”
When it comes to nutrient-dense veggies, Coach Rachel says “I love spinach, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, avocado, sweet potato, and zucchini.”
Coach Katie loves throwing zucchini on the grill for an extra kick of flavor. “My mom has a tomato and bell pepper garden in the summer”, she said, “and home-grown is SO GOOD.” Um, how jealous are we?!
Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring. Every season has its own bounty of delicious veggies that are sure to keep your meals exciting. Leafy greens are in season in the Spring, so stock up on spinach, lettuce, swiss chard, and cabbage for a fresh superfood salad.
