The demands on a chef often make it hard to sit and eat a proper meal and as a result we tend to graze our day away. However, grazing is not optimal for a chef trying to stay fit. And while the old adage goes, “you can’t trust a skinny chef,” there are some good reasons to trust a fit one.
One of the best things to come from your favorite chef watching their diet is the creation of fun recipes that meet the needs of a diet driven consumer, while still delivering amazing taste. I have and continue to learn that what I consume affects everything from my mood to overall well-being. A few everyday changes that have helped me are: more proteins, power greens and vegetables. While it’s hard as a chef to find time to eat right all the time our already busy days I’ve found that a smoothie is a great and quick way to eat healthy.
Below is a recipe I love which utilizes some local spinach. As always with our recipes, use them a baseline and tweak to meet your needs. I love toasted hemp seeds in my smoothies as well as some chia.
My new Mountain bike is waiting for more time on the trail and it’s going to be a great summer. Happy blending my friends.
