Liz Hilliard’s Food Diary
Organic Green Tea
Hilliard Studio Method Signature Smoothie
Think Thin High Protein Bar + Trilogy Kombucha
This bar is the only processed food I eat. Its 20g of protein and 0g of sugar keep me fueled after teaching and working out. Kombucha has healthy probiotics which are great for digestion.
Grilled salmon with loads of leafy greens and vegetables.
Raw veggies dipped in hummus. The darker the better. I love cabbage, broccoli and brussels sprouts.
Beans, beans, beans! Lentils and black beans are my favorite. My nighttime salad is any chopped green in my garden with nuts of any kind. I add more more veggies and fruits like blackberries. A really good olive oil and balsamic vinegar with salt, pepper and lemon is the best dressing you can use for flavor and healthy fats. I add the lemon or any citrus squeeze to aid in the absorption of the greens.
My nightly treat is homemade popcorn air-popped in olive oil or coconut oil and 2 glasses of good red wine.
