“Keep your cart to the perimeter” – adapted from the Crossfit L1 Training Guide and Whiteboard Daily.
“In plain language, base your diet on garden vegetables (especially greens), meats, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. That’s about as simple as we can get.
By keeping your grocery kart to the perimeter of the grocery store while avoiding the aisles is a great way to protect your health.
Food is perishable. The stuff with long shelf life is all suspect.
If you follow these simple guidelines, you will benefit from nearly all that can be achieved through nutrition.”
This is a nice timely reminder as we start the new year. All of us are feeling the effects of the holidays, the calorie rich foods and lots of it, and of course not as much time in the gym. As we finish off all the holiday leftovers and special baked goods and re-stock our kitchens, keep this in mind. I don’t venture down the aisles very often and when I do it is usually for coffee, spices and cereal for my kids who have two hollow legs!
So I will look for all of you in the gym or the perimeter of the grocery stores in town!
