Priorty Number One - Fresh Foods

Flu season is quickly approaching. It actually may have never left with H1N1 swirling around the globe. It is as important as ever during this time of year to keep your immune system in tip top shape. How do you do that? Eat fresh foods! If you eat fresh veggies, fruits, meats and seafood as often as you can, then you will dramatically increase the trace nutrients in your diet. There is a lot of evidence that shows that the immune system works better when it is nourished in the correct way. Cookies, pizza, and Baked Lays don't nourish anything.

I have been completely guilty in the past of buying large amounts of fresh food, throwing them in the fruit and veggie drawer in the fridge, forgetting about them and tossing them in the trash two weeks later. What a shame. Remember how ridding your home of non paleo foods keeps you from indulging? Well, if your fresh foods are out of sight the same thing happens...except we want to eat those foods. We need to see them.

Quit using your fruit and veggie drawer. Give your shelves in the fridge a good scrub down and properly display all your fruits and veggies where they are the first thing you seen when you open the door. Keep your celery and carrots washed so you can grab them and random for a quick snack. Keep your grapes and apples in bowls. All the colors will help your fridge stay bright and inviting. No one likes to open the fridge and see there is nothing to eat. Keep it stocked!

Be careful though, you don't want to buy too much at once. Keep enough on hand to hold you five to seven days. This way you will always have crisp veggies on hand. No one likes to eat wilted veggies. That is not the way nature intended.

Muscle Up Update:
Yesterday I started my new game plan to hit the muscle up. I officially have twenty days to get it done. I'm working on getting a good dead hang false grip pull up and super super deep ring dips separately. After some good work on those I'm going to try to string them together. My wrist is pretty sore today from that stupid false grip. It is the price I must pay. It will happen.
