Wondering what instructors keep in their kitchens to keep them fit and fueled all day long? Philadelphia Instructor AMANDAH POVILITUS knows a thing or two about what it takes to eat healthy… As the creator of the vegan blog, The Shift Wellness, AMANDAH is always recipe testing and cooking up a healthy storm. Here, read exactly what foods she stocks up on.
1. Fresh Produce
Including but not limited to brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes (purple are my favorite), avocados, mushrooms, kale, cucumbers, tomatoes, all kinds of citrus, bananas, apples, berries, onions, and garlic.
2. Healthy Fats
Coconut oil, olive oil, nuts (I make milks with almonds and hazelnuts and desserts with cashews), hemp hearts, cacao nibs, and ground flaxseed.
Beans, lentils, tofu, tempeh, field roast faux-meat products, and all of the leafy greens and other fresh produce that give us a ton of clean protein!
Sprouted breads (like Ezekiel 4:9 bread), farro, buckwheat, and oat groats. We also love to make pasta with whole grain and brown rice pastas that we top with fresh tomato sauce or vegan cheese sauce!
5. Healthy Snacks
Daiya dairy-free “greek” yogurts, vegetables and/or whole grain chips and hummus, dark chocolate, Lenny & Larry’s complete cookie protein cookies, and whole grain bread, almond butter, and no-sugar-added jams for almond butter & jelly sandwiches!
Coffee, non-dairy creamer for coffee, kombuchas, Vega Performance Sport protein powders, matcha powder for green tea lattes.
