What do I Eat??? Week One...

My name is Julian Kaufman.  I own Forte Fitness, and I am so grateful for our team of trainers and clients.  I am often asked, "What do you eat?"  Well each week I am going to send you a meal I have actually eaten and prepared.  I desire to eat beautiful food that tastes great and is nutritionally diverse.  I focus on eating whole foods, mainly plant-based.  I try to include as many different plants, vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts and seeds as I can each day.  

This is a breakfast I made and ate this week.  (Sorry the picture is grainy - I will try to get better ones as the weeks go on!)  I am busy like you.  I get up in the 5s or 6s each morning and work until 7pm or later.  I only mention this to say if you want to be a healthy eater, you can.  It just takes your commitment.  You owe it to yourself and your family because what you eat will determine your health.  

The breakfast you are looking at is no cheese omelet.  I sliced thinly small red, yellow and orange bell peppers.  I threw them in a pan with a little olive oil. I also chopped up some kale and threw it in the pan.  Then I cracked two free range eggs.  Meanwhile I steamed 4 asparagus.  I seasoned the eggs with sea salt, black pepper, and red chili flakes.  I seasoned the asparagus with a little olive oil and sea salt  I drank a glass of green tea with it.  

It was delicious and healthy.

Give it a try.  It is not hard to do.  And this was just my plate.  I made this for my son that I had to take to school as well.  Not only is he eating a healthy breakfast but he is learning to appreciate good, healthy food and to take the time to make it.
