Hey Megan, What's Your Diet Look Like?

I’m asked on a regular basis about what I eat. It’s great because it’s a sign that people are getting the idea that food is what fitness is all about. In this post I’m going to lay out 25 of the foods that are typically found in my kitchen and pantry.

Trust me, I’ve met tons of fitness models, and we all eat the same nutritious stuff (with lots of variances of course, but you get the idea). Enjoy!



25 Foods In My Kitchen At All Times

  1. Broccoli and Cauliflower
  2. Beans/Lentils like black, kidney, garbanzo, or cannellini. They’re low in calories and fat, but packed with fiber, protein, and minerals.
  3. Oranges and grapefruits (grapefruits are a natural fat burner).
  4. Quinoa: It looks like a whole grain but they’re actually seeds. Incredibly nutritious and quicker to prepare than grains.
  5. Brown rice (in moderation, but better than processed or whitened rice).
  6. Cage-free and organic eggs.
  7. Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries.
  8. Salmon (wild varieties only; no GMO up in here!)
  9. Low fat Greek yogurt (ideally probiotic) replaces sour cream in some of my recipes.
  10. Steel-cut and old fashioned oatmeal, I avoid instant.
  11. Avocados are one of my go-to sources of healthy mono & polyunsaturated fats.
  12. High-quality Whey protein powders (I use IsaPro and IsaLean).
  13. I sip on natural vitamin C drinks sometimes for energy boosts in the morning.
  14. A greens supplement, my like IsaGreens.
  15. Fresh lemon and lime juice, which is great for adding to water (better than sugar-filled sports drinks), or squeezing onto veggies, and salads.
  16. Shirataki noodles are low in calories, not as good as pasta, but a great alternative when a craving for processed carbs creeps up.
  17. A fiber supplement that assists with digestion and helps me feel full, which aids in excess weight loss.
  18. Asparagus is chock full of vitamins K and B!
  19. Lean red meat (I partake maybe once to twice a week at most).
  20. Free-range organic chicken.
  21. Spinach is my one-stop-shop for iron.
  22. Green tea helps me burn fat and is a gentle form of energy brimming over with anti-oxidants.
  23. Raw almonds, cashews, and walnuts are other natural resources of fat that I regularly employ, while keeping a close eye on serving sizes.
  24. Fish oil is healthy for plenty of reasons, but I love it primarily because of what it does for my skin, hair, and nails.
  25. Clean water is a must! I don’t care if I have to boil the stuff myself, a steady stream of fresh clean water is crucial to my fitness and health.

How many of these foods are in your house right now this second? If you know who I am, have seen pictures from my photo shoots, and thought it would be nice to look like I do, what you’re really seeing are the results of that list up above. It’s not about looking good, it’s about eating well and loving your life.
