Athletic Fox

Athletic foxThese recipe and menu collections are fully compliant with the nutritional approach to fat loss and building a tight body endorsed by fitness expert Rachel Guy of Athletic Fox. The Athletic Fox approach to healthy nutrition does not require extreme deprivation or removing entire food groups. Rather the focus is on optimizing a regular diet for developing and sculpting lean body mass while maximizing fat loss.

Athletic Fox Top 10 Foundational Habits for Great Nutrition

  1. Drink 2-4 liters of clean, filtered water daily.
  2. Center your meals around lean meats and other quality proteins, rotating choices from meal to meal.
  3. Eat at least 5 servings of vegetables and 2 servings of fruits daily. Choose a wide variety, preferably in season.
  4. Be strategic about your carbohydrate intake for your personal weight and fitness goals.
  5. Do not cut entire macronutrients out of your diet.
  6. Choose free range, organic animal foods whenever possible, especially meats.
  7. Limit processed food and alcohol to very occasional use. (Remember that low fat usually means high sugar.)
  8. Eat the freshest foods possible and don’t overcook your food into oblivion.
  9. Minimize sugar and chemicals in your diet.
  10. Use sensible portion control to keep caloric intake balanced.

Fox Food Foundation for Training

Base all of your meals on fibrous veggies, a lean meat, fish or eggs and a serving of clean, healthy fat. Add a serving of a starchy carbohydrate at breakfast and after training, and eat two pieces of fruit whenever you like in the day.

This tasty salad requires some chopping time, but it's well worth it. It's mostly seasonal fruits and veggies, but the avocado, hazelnuts and dulse give it enough staying power to enjoy as a lightly detoxifying meal, great for enjoying after a bit of heavy holiday "celebrating" :)

Baked Mediterranean Chicken

Mediterranean cuisine, well known for its nutritional benefits, is easily adapted to a quick baked chicken dish. While simple to make, it has a satisfying complexity of flavor. The piquancy of the lemon and olives is mellowed by the creamy feta. This recipe can work in all seasons, even summer, because the oven only needs to be on for twenty minutes.

Baked Sweet Potato Hummus

This delightful, lightly sweet hummus makes a perfect satisfying, high-fiber fall snack with crunchy crudites or seasonal fruit slices. It is made without oils for lowest-cal, but tastes great with a splash of extra virgin olive, so feel free to drizzle if you're looking for some clean fats. The flavor with black beans is delightful, but the color isn't, so choose your bean base accordingly :)
