Adrenal fatigue detox challenge
PREP DAY - WHAT + HOW TO EAT
*This challenge originally ran as a live event with emails and a private Facebook group, but as a member you get access to do it as a refresher as many times as you want. Enjoy!
WELCOME TO THE CHALLENGE!
Over the next 5 days, you are going to identify the biggest sources of stress, physical and mental, that are contributing to your less-than-optimal health.
And because you’re also a member, you have access to the exact tools needed to address those physical and mental stressors head-on! Pretty cool, right?
Before we get into the specifics, let's make sure we're on the same page about a few things:
1. I am not a doctor. More specifically, I am not your doctor. The suggestions and strategies included in this free challenge are a starting point, but they might not be appropriate for everyone. Use some common sense. You are the CEO of your own damn bod, after all....if something I suggest seems counterintuitive for your specific situation, then consult your Dr.
2. Remember, this challenge is all about IDENTIFYING what the stressors are that are contributing to your adrenal fatigue symptoms. You can take this information and work on it slowly...or you can dive in headfirst and go 100% from this point forward. (It's up to you!)
3. With that being said, be realistic and know that perfection is unattainable, so don't start this challenge thinking you have to (or would even be capable of) changing every aspect of your diet and lifestyle over the course of 5 days. Just pick out the nuggets that feel doable right now and start where you're at.
LESS STRESS IS THE GOAL...NOT MORE STRESS!
For today, we want to try to set up your food selection on autopilot for the rest of the week. Everything in life is easier when you don’t have to stress about shopping and cooking.
You have an entire vault of meal plans (including grocery lists + prep guides) available right here to choose from…time to go pick one and get started!
Does the thought of prepping your food totally stress you? Then don't do it! You can keep your meals soooooo simple by following the world's easiest meal equation:
1 protein + a ton of colorful veggies + healthy fat = a meal
Doesn't get any easier than that, right?
If you want to batch your meals but don’t want to follow one of the member meal plans:
:: I like to make a big batch of homemade soup, stew or chili and eat it for lunches or a few dinners during the week.
:: A 9x13" pan of bacon, veggies and whipped eggs makes a super-easy egg bake to eat all week long.
:: Make taco meat and make sure to have lots of chopped veggies, guacamole and salsas on hand to make taco salads or taco-loaded-baked-sweet potatoes later in the week.
See what I mean? You can do a lot of this in advance!
Ok, with that, I'm going to leave you to do your shoppin, choppin and packin'.
I just gave you a TON of resources, and if that was overwhelming, then just watch the video and forget about the rest of this...
...But when you land on a new favorite recipe in one of the meal plans, make sure to share it in the Facebook group so we can all try it out!
