Let’s talk about skinny fat.
We all know strong is the new skinny (thank GOD) and more and more girls are getting on board with treating their body well and accepting the results that come from doing that.
Treating your body well is the action – your BEST, strongest body type is the result. If we do it right, that result looks different for everyone.
If you’re working towards your best bod, PLEASE don’t be scared of eating fats… because fats are one of the things that will get you closer to that.
Think about it… you want the food you eat to either burn as energy, grow your muscles, improve your mental health or immunity, OR help you reach your healthiest weight. Am I getting that right?
If it helps, healthy fats can also be known as skinny fats. They’re clean fuel, they protect your body and keep it warm like healthy fat should, they improve your skin, they absorb nutrients, AND they help regulate your hormones. Gimmeeeeee: avocados, nuts, seeds, olive oil, coconut milk, etc.
They DON’T clog your arteries as badly as animal fats do, they don’t come with processed chemicals and fillers from processed foods that mess with your digestion, fat burning, healthy weight, and skin.
SO with that said, let’s enter guac city and share my easy recipe that can help you add some healthy fat to dip your chips in, add to sandwiches, dip veggies in, and more:
Here’s what you need:
- 1 avocado
- 1 tbsp cilantro, chopped
- 1 pinch himalayan pink salt
- 1 pinch pepper
- 1/2 tbsp lime juice
- optional: 1 tbsp finely chopped onion
- optional: 1 tbsp chopped jalapeno or spice of your choice
Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl and mash together with a fork. You’ll DEF want to adjust the amounts as you go. You might like a little more lime juice, you might like a little more spice.
TIP: I’m OBSESSED with these multigrain chips lately and you need to know why. So not only are they made with healthier ingredients than most (like quinoa, flax seeds, ru joking??) but they’re the only tortilla chips I’ve found so far that are NOT SO SALTY. aka – they don’t make you feel puffy or tingle your mouth when you’re done because of all the extra sodium. Bye, bloat.
AND: I need to ask you a question…
What do YOU like to eat? Healthy or not. I love making recipes for you to try new healthy options and it’s SO much fun when you guys tell me some of your favorite meals. That way, I can make sure I’m showing you health hacks for foods you actually like. So tag me (@healthyandhustling) in your favorites so I can help you get the body you want. Thank you to the girls already doing this. ILY.
Off to record a new episode today + maybe making this guac tonight while I have a heart attack over the Bachelorette. Garret 4ev. Thanks for reading!
