You are more of an expert on nutrition than you think!

Sometimes, we make nutrition more complicated than it is – GMO this, gluten-free that, and organic everything blah blah blah. First, let’s start with the basics, and go from there. I believe that you are all experts on nutrition and I am going to prove it right now with three questions: What is healthier; broccoli or cookies? Which food is better for you; grilled chicken, or a brownie sundae? Do sweet potatoes or french fries have more vitamins and minerals? If your answers were broccoli, grilled chicken, and sweet potatoes, you passed! See how simple nutrition is? Let’s not make it complicated. Get rid of the garbage and stock your  fridge and pantry with the following list of foods so you can nourish your body with nutrients, vitamins, and minerals, promoting muscle growth and recovery. When you run out, go buy more. Simple.
