Recipes For January 2017 – Vie Kitchen

— Fresh Start —

People always ask us, “What should I be eating?”  This is a great question!  Why do all this hard work at Vie if you aren’t going to fuel or replenish your body correctly?  Whether you are paleo, vegan, vegetarian, or a macro calculator, we want you to eat real unprocessed whole foods.  That simple!  No matter what camp you belong to this is possible. There is no magic equation-no magic pill.  The work you put into this will determine your results.  We don’t want you to count every calorie and stress, nor do we want you to be mindless about what your body really needs.  It’s a beautiful thing called balance.   We care about you on and off the court!  That is why we have provided the following meal plan.  This is not for the picky eater.  Yes, we will have you eat veggies ;).  This is for the planner who already knows she is short on time and wants to put herself in the best position to succeed.  As mature and disciplined individuals, I hope we all realize eating food should not always be entertainment.  It is okay to say no to yourself!  No to the excessive alcohol.  No to the over eating.  Saying a simple no is a victory in itself!  Over time these will add up and you will start to feel and look the way that you crave.  So let’s take a look at the menu!
