Hey, guys. It’s me here, Jessie. I am doing this video because I wanted to show you some of the things that I pick up at Whole Foods for Ahmad and I.
We are really trying to focus on leafy, greens for the summer, right? Because it’s hot outside, so you need things that are cooling for the inside. So, anything green, anything light, nothing too heavy for the body, right? It’s like you want to lay off heavy fats, you want to lay off heavy carbohydrates, starches, high in fat food like cakes, cookies. All the things that we know to do all year round but especially during the summer because it keeps your body cool in the inside and it aids and burning fat. So, think Kale, Quinoa is actually like green, think tuna salad, think alike chicken salad. And later in the clip, I’m going to show you a really fun way to make a healthy to consolidate that you can incorporate in your meal or in your diet. Ahmad actually came up with this really delicious mix that he puts together. So, I’m excited. I can’t wait to show you.
And then, what else? I think that’s it. Maybe some lean protein, of course, you want to have protein in every single meal through working out hard core. You need to aid those workouts with some lean protein. Also, let’s see. I can’t think of anything at the moment. Fruits, of course, I’m forgetting fruits. Don’t be afraid to have fruits especially if it’s smoothie. Maybe mix the fruit smoothie with some protein so that we are always absorbing some and every meal or snack. You don’t want to go heavy on the fruits because it’s still sugar and it still affects your body the way sugar affects it if it’s over abundant amount of something.
And then, tons of water, tons and tons of water. If you feel that you’re little lower on energy or electrolytes or vitamins and even minerals, drink coconut water. Coconut water is excellent. It has sugar in it but it has natural sugar, so your body absorbs it, uses it immediately but it doesn’t have that crash feeling that you got from some sugary drinks. And that pretty much wraps it up.
If I would think of anything else, I will get back to you. But right now, that’s it. So, stay tuned. I’m going to show you my groceries once I come out from Whole Foods. Again, I don’t buy everything at Whole Foods, I just buy few things because it’s pretty expensive. So, I’d like to buy vegetables and the fruits here, of course, organic is the better way to go, no pesticides, no hormones, no nothing. So, stay tuned. We’ll get back to you with the groceries that I’ve gotten. We will go over some recipes together because that’s important when you’re creating any diet plan or you are on an existing line, you’re kind of feel you’re in a rock and needs some creative ideas. Those are the times that you need to watch this video because we have some great recipes coming up and some fun detox even smoothie ideas. So, we’re going to break that up into several little segments for you. We’re not going to hit you all up at once a lot of information. So, just keep coming back and staying, too, so you can see we have next for you, all right? I’m excited. I’ll see you, guys, in a little. Bye.
Hey, guys. Okay. This is what did I get from Whole Foods portion. So, first thing I want to show you is red Kale. It is gorgeous. It is beautiful, brightly green vegetable. It’s very similar to cabbage. It’s actually from the cabbage family. Just wonderful for your skin, it’s vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin K, really helps in aiding in the digestive process, also clearing you out, so you want to eat that especially for this summer, right? Like I said earlier, it cools down your body. Well, you can use it for chicken salad, one of the leaves and wrap it and eat like the chicken salad wrap. You can put it to the, which I’m going to do it later a separate clip for that. I would mix it with apples, a banana and if you want some hemp seeds for some proteins. That will mix my next Whole Foods purchase which is hemp seeds. The reason why I wanted to show this because it’s an alternative form of protein you can get. If you’re vegetarian and you don’t want to eat an animal meat, hemp seeds, lots of people use this. You can grind it up and put it in the smoothie or you can put it in your cereal or you can put it even in your salad. It’s up to you. You can get pretty creative with this. So again, you can find it at Whole Foods or you can order on landline.
The next thing I got was I made Ahmad and I this wonderful salad that we call love basket. You could see right here. It is romaine lettuce, some rice and those are stringed zucchini which are awesome at taste, super good, a lot of veggies here because that’s we’re trying to focus on and I have one hard-boiled egg in there. What I plan to do is throw in some chicken salad that I also bought from Whole Foods. We love very much, it’s light, it’s fresh, it’s a high quality great chicken. It’s hugely important if you’re going eat meat. Make sure it doesn’t have any biotics, any hormones, you know, it’s good for you, it’s natural.
What else did I buy? Oh, this yummy, yummy Quinoa vegetable power cakes. You can actually make them yourself. So, it’s just Quinoa vegetable with a little bit of bread crumbs, just a little bit to keep it all together and then you heat it up and you can mix that up with your chicken salad, you can put it in just a salad minus the chicken. You can just eat a plain, whatever you want.
Next is, some granola that I bought for Ahmad because he loves granola with kids, yogurt and this is strawberry hemp granola. It’s delicious. You can see it here, it tastes yummy. It’s actually low in sugar, high in quality protein, easily digestible, it tastes wonderful. It doesn’t taste like cardboards. Sometime healthy granolas don’t have that delicious granola taste. So, you can eat it with your cereal, you can put it in your smoothie, in your yogurt, whatever you want to do.
Next is, let’s see what else. Jam, organic high quality jam that doesn’t have the added chemicals or sugar that some jams that you can get at regular convenience store or regular supermarket store have. So, you want to be very cautious about that. It should be high quality. The thing is that you’re eating, so that’s when you feed your body.
Next is, apples, green apples because I love them. That’s the staple for the summer. Green or red, it doesn’t matter, it just depends on your choice.
Next clip, I’m going to show you how you can make a kale smoothie using green apples. So, stay tuned for that. That’s coming up next, all right? And that’s all I got today. I just have to get few more things. Whole Foods is expensive. So, you want to pick and choose the things that you’re going to buy there that save some money. Until next time, I’ll see you soon. Bye.
