Mz Everythang! Robin Roberts

Mz Everythang! Robin Roberts

Incomparable. Brilliant. Stunning. Fighter. Role model. Advocate. Cancer Survivor.

Mz. Everything Robin Roberts.

I, like everyone who has grown up in this country knows who Robin Roberts is. Whatever her parents did needs to be bottled and immediately sold in Costco sized quantities.

Her nutrition intake consists of foods high in nutrient density. The key is eating foods low in calories while being high in nutrients (vitamins & minerals). Great nutrient dense foods are kale, spinach, Greek yogurt, and a wide variety of fruits, grains, and healthy fats. Remember that fiber and omega-3’s are a large factor as well. Instead of spending money on supplements your nutrient dense food intake should be your supplementation. By taking in fiber and omega-3’s your body will fight off hunger while also allowing you to eat as much as you please since there is little to no calories in nutrient dense food sources.

And… REMEMBER TO EXERCISE!!! It’s a no brainer. Eating Clean + Exercise = a Healthier YOU
