Tropical Salmon with Sweet Potato Mash

Lately, I’ve found on Instagram that y’all are interested in seeing nutrition and macro info for the food I eat.

Truthfully, I’m not super keen on tracking every bite I put in my mouth for the rest of my life.

But I’m also aware that most people don’t have any clue as to the total calorie and macro composition of their daily diet.

And unfortunately, in the real food, Paleo community, being oblivious to that can actually cause harm in the long run.

Whether you are way too low carb, or simply undereating in general, having some level of macro-awareness is crucial for fueling your body appropriately and avoiding the dangers of long term undereating.

Knowing how many of you struggle with undereating, that’s why I’ve created…

fed for real RECIPES!

Every Thursday I’ll publish a real food, gluten-free recipe that provides a good balance of protein, carbs, and fat to fuel your body and reach your health and fitness goals.

These full meal recipes will help ensure your body is well fed for real!

Generally these will be higher carb meals than the ones you might be used to seeing on typical Paleo websites.

I want to provide recipes that allow you to get the carbs they need to fuel your workouts, your hormones, and your daily life in general.

Feel free to tweak the portion sizes as necessary to better align with your personal macronutrient needs.

(And consider working with me if you have no idea what you should be doing with your macro balance!)
