Are You Ready to Improve Your Health?
Achieving Optimal Health is a complicated process, and is often overlooked in conventional treatment methods.
The problem is, it is much easier to take a pill for a symptom, then it is to dig for the root cause and correct that dysfunction which could potentially alleviate your symptoms.
But eventually a pill may no longer fix the symptoms, and another pill is required. Then those 2 pills stop working, and another one is added. This process continues until you are tired of chasing symptoms and instead you want answers.
This is where we come in.
In our nutrition counseling service, we guide/support you with making nutrition changes, educate on nutrition related chronic conditions, and/or discuss ways to best fuel your body. We spend time discovering YOUR needs, learn about YOUR goals, and what YOU want to achieve with improving your nutrition intake. Nutrition is individualized - each person has different needs and preferences.
We take a look at 5 Main Components of your life to create a dedicated protocol to fit your needs:
At the root of all functions of the body are the nutritional components needed to keep the body well. Each person has different needs to feel their best.
Rest & Recovery
Equipment Needed for a Balanced Eating KitNo one on the DHF team receives any kickback from the product links listed. We included links of products we are familiar with and know that they will work well.
If you can have any type of cooking equipment on your truck this is my top pick!
That is because the microwave is able to take on the task of cooking most foods well. I have weeks of recipes built up using just the microwave for cooking!
If you have the extra cash I would highly recommend getting a Galanz 3-in-1. Some invertors cannot manage the air fryer capabilities but you will still be able to use the microwave and oven capabilities!
Fridge, preferably with freezer space
Coolers can do a whole lot, but a fridge with a freezer space is able to handle meal prep capabilities. Making a couple meals at a time and being able to store those is one of the best ways to avoid eating out
Food grade cleaning wipes for cleaning dishes, fruit and veggies
3-5 glass meal prep containers with sealing lids
Making a meal that lasts a couple of days is great but what about storage after??
Glass meal prep containers are perfect for that because they have sealing lids so you won't have a mess after driving on bumpy roads and they are heat safe so you can actually cook in them as well!
Paper plate, bowls, utensils
Water bottles are GREAT because they help you to avoid getting packaged calorie containing beverages like sodas. Feel free to use flavoring packets to snazz up your water.
Did you know that slight dehydration is a big risk factor for overeating? General recommendations are to drink about half your body weight in oz each day
Try the link below for a water bottle with time markers to help you be aware of how much water you are taking in.
Re-usable or Ziplock bags
Baggies are a great way to prep snack portions to avoid overeating, or to store leftovers in a SUPER space saving way!
There are also re-usable bags for a way to save money long term and reduce trash
Canned goods are a great way to continue to get nutrient dense food even when you run out of fridge/freezer space.
But lots of cans don't have a pull-tab so make sure to invest in a can opener so you are not left with food you cannot access
Colander & Cutting Board
I promote a lot of steamer bags of veggies and other recipes that require cooking in water so grab a colander to drain off any extra water easily.
And I occasionally have recipes that require some cutting so click the link below to get a handy-dandy cutting board with a colander built in!
