What you eat will make or break your fitness results so if you aren’t happy with your current body then I’ll bet that your diet could use some improvement.

I realize that finding the time to cook and eat healthy meals is a challenge for many of my clients and so I’d like to introduce you to the Nourish Bowl.

What is a Nourish Bowl? It’s a simple meal that consists of greens, protein, healthy fat, veggies, healthy carbs and various flavor adds.

A Nourish Bowl could be enjoyed for any meal of the day, is quick to assemble, and is the perfect alternative to high calorie take-out meals.
