It’s Thursdays with Trina and Nutrition is our topic.  You can workout all you want but if you do not support your body with good nutrition you will never progress or get lean.  Start planning for meals and proper snacks.  If you eat regularly every 2-3 hours, you will keep your blood sugar levels normal and therefore avoid an insulin spike.  Eating regularly also promotes healthy weight loss.  You know that afternoon craving and crash you get?  Let’s avoid all of that by choosing wholesome foods that fill you up.  Keep it simple, accessible and healthy.  Think healthy carbs, protein and fats.

Healthy Snack

What You Need

2 Ryvita Crackers *41 calories each

1 oz Goats Cheese *approx 101 calories, 8 grams of fat 7 grams protein

Half of a cucumber

Palm full of all natural raw unsalted nuts *I generally use almonds, cashews and pistachios as they are the best nuts – Pecans are featured in this photo

I am on a higher calorie diet with training so you could definitely cut the nuts by a little and have just one cracker.

The Best Nuts:  The lowest-calorie nuts at 160 per ounce are almonds (23 nuts; 6 grams protein, 14 grams fat); cashews (16 to 18 nuts; 5 grams protein, 13 grams fat); and pistachios (49 nuts; 6 grams protein, 13 grams fat). Avoid nuts packaged or roasted in oil; instead, eat them raw or dry roasted, says Caplan. (Roasted nuts may have been heated in hydrogenated or omega-6 unhealthy fats, she adds, or to high temperatures that can destroy their nutrients.)
