You know those mornings when you wake up, hit the snooze, and refuse to get out of bed? Or after lunch, you struggle with all your might to stay awake at work? After 27 years, I finally realized why I felt so sluggish: It wasn't my workout, my sleep, or even my schedule.
UGH, I hate the typical food advice. Tell me if you've heard these before:
1. "Sugar is the devil. Salt is addictive. I don't know about you, but I eat a salad every day. I feel amazing."
2. "Oh, it's Wednesday night? I'll just whip up a simple dinner of braised fennel and spring-pea risotto with a white-wine reduction. It'll only take me a couple hours."
Can we get real?
I don't want to eat carrots, or broccoli and skinless chicken breast every meal for the rest of my life. And I'm damn sure not going to make roasted vegetable lasagna on a random Wednesday.
Yes, I want to eat healthy... but I also want to eat DELICIOUS food. Sorry, "food experts," my first rule is that I have to LIKE WHAT I EAT! (Is that so weird?)
I also need food to work around my life. I'm not going to cook salmon and take it to work. That would force me to use a microwave to warm it up, which destroys any health benefits, not to mention would stink up the office. How much will my co-workers like me after that?
And I want my food to give me energy and keep me focused, not leave me craving something sugary an hour from now.
My dream is simple: I just want to reach inside my fridge and know that I have mouthwatering meals ready to eat.
I don't want to think about it. I don't want to spend hours on food prep. I just want it to work!
I can't believe how long it took me to figure out how to do this. But now that I have, I'm so excited to show you.
Hi, I'm David Alsieux, owner and founder of Wisdom Square. Host to over 50,000 readers per month, and I gotta be honest - I don't know a single REAL person who eats like Martha Stewart.
Like you, I've read hundreds of articles on food - Paleo diet, Atkins diet, Mediterranean diet, South Beach diet, the list goes on. There seems to be countless "diets" available to us, and yet we still get sick when we follow them. Meaning something is missing!
Hippocrates is often called "The Father of Medicine" in Western culture. Every doctor for the most part is familiar with the Hippocratic Oath, which was used to swear in new physicians.
Lesser known by the same doctors is the fact that he was regarded as a person who could cure all disease by using herbs. He lived between 460 BC. and 370 BC.
Fast forward to the year 2016, and you'll find tons of "experts" proclaiming from the highest podium the latest "diet" that will save your health. Yet, despite the numerous variety of diets we have to choose from, disease still runs rampant and the cost of "research" to find a "treatment" is through the roof.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) invests nearly $32.3 billion annually in medical research for the American people. All while the average U.S. person spends $8,233 per year on healthcare... more than 2.5 times what the average person from most other developed nations will spend.
Where are the doctors like Hippocrates and Claudius Galenus today?
If that's not bad enough, nowadays you hear this phrase non-stop.
Look, it's fine to be tired once in awhile. It's even normal to have crazy weeks.
But isn't it interesting that we're surrounded by people who tell us it's normal to feel this way all the time? Our co-workers take daily "coffee breaks," our friends constantly tell us
