Thank you again Meghan Doll, Registered Holistic Nutritionist, for coming into the studio on Sunday to chat with us! In case you missed it here are the highlights:
Hydration is 🔑
Body weight (lbs) divided by 2 = Oz of water needed per day PLUS extra on spin days 💦💦
Add a pinch of Pink Himalayan Sea Salt to water for mineral support. (if its white it’s not right)
🍋Lemon water with sea salt is amazing!
The perfect pre-workout snack is high protein and fat. Must for 6am rides or if you ride after work and haven’t eaten since lunch. 6AM – It is important to have something in your stomach! 425 and 530 snack is optional.
➡️Favorites discussed: hard boiled eggs, almonds, cheese (grass fed), jerky, avocado with hemp, avocado with almond butter.
Eat within an hour of waking up for hormone health!
All meals built starting with protein in mind first (1-2 palm sized servings), then a fat source, veggies are best carbs!
Think the more natural the better- grass fed meats, pasture raised eggs. Support the local farmers market!
Protein powders are useful but real food is preferred! Amino acid powders are not needed.
