Module 1: A Dinner Full of Macros

Shoot for a combination of macronutrients when it comes to planning your dinner menu. Macronutrients are your carbs, proteins, and fats. Simply, use the Food Target to choose a food from each section to build a meal that is healthy and balanced.

When it comes to macronutrients, a typical question I get a lot is how much protein is enough? If you are eating a well-balanced diet of lean meats, healthy grains, nuts, seeds, and leafy greens—you don’t have to worry about getting enough protein.

Typically, I don’t recommend supplements of any kind especially whey protein. Whey protein is processed protein that comes from milk. It is very acidic and is hard for the body to breakdown and absorb. Because, proteins are also known as amino acids, eating too much protein can make your body acidic. Keep in mind that acid equals inflammation and inflammation is the root cause of all disease.

If you are a vegetarian or feel that you don’t get enough protein, I recommend you add hemp seeds to your diet. Hemp seeds are the highest source of plant-based protein with 11 grams of protein in just 3 grams. They are also high in healthy omega 6 fats needed for energy and a healthy metabolism. The will also be the most affordable protein source. Simply, throw them in your smoothie, add to trail mix or top on your oatmeal or salad for a delicious crunch.
