The Rebel Kitchen

Stock your kitchen like a Rebel. The biggest secret to success is PREP.  Get your planning done and your pantry cleaned out!  Here are some of our favourite ways to make meal prep fun. Everyone’s body needs different food…there is no “one-size fits all” meal plan that really “works”.  Do your own research, note what foods make you feel amazing, and which don’t agree with you. We share what works for us. When it comes to food and diet trends, we choose to be fans of science and are always wary of the endless fear-based marketing messages.  Is it necessary to buy organic + hormone-free? Is there something really wrong with the favourite foods you’ve been eating for years? We think it’s all about balance and eating the best food you can, when you can. WHAT WILL I EAT? Every body needs different food. This is why the one-size-fits-all meal plans you may have received during fitness challenges before DID NOT WORK FOR YOU. You should not feel deprived, hungry or miserable about food, during challenge season. Rebel meals should be full of healthy, delicious food that you LOVE. Along the way, we’ll be sharing our favourite ways to amp up our eating for maximum health and vibrancy. We’ll also be sharing our favourite ways to time meals. Will they be right for you?  We’ll help you know how to decide. Do you have any health concerns related to diet? Do you ever feel the following after you eat? bloating abdominal pain or cramping nausea headaches and brain fog Food has a major impact on our health and wellbeing, and we need...
