When it comes to nourishment, consistency is the key. Eating whole foods such as fruits, veggies and legumes will give your body the goodness it needs, without the additives many processed foods include.
Keep it clean by removing added sugar and highly processed foods from your daily meals and snacks. It's necessary to increase your water intake to approximately 2.5 litres a day - this is important for health, growth and development of your bodies system, coordination, concentration, hydration, skin and muscular response. Katie's daily nutritional habits include 1 green smoothie and/or a cold pressed veggie juice, 2-3 cups of organic green and/or peppermint tea, lots of nutrient dense veggies such as carrot, zucchini, spinach, celery, beetroot and a couple of pieces of fruit a day such as banana, pear or apple.
Listening to your body is imperative to reaching your fitness goals. Whether you're craving another day of rest, increased carbohydrates, more water or extra sleep, it's important adapt accordingly.
