In this episode, Chris and Jill reflect on 2022, books read, podcast guests interviewed and healthy eating tips mentioned throughout the year.

Some of the topics we discussed include:

    • Eating fiber first, then protein, then carbs. So eating your salad or vegetables first makes sense, then the protein, and then whatever carbs you’re eating.
Glucose Revolution by Jessie Inchauspe

Jill recently read the book “Glucose Revolution by Jessie Inchauspe” and we talked about some insights that she learned from it.

  • Water? Before after during? Drinking water before a meal might help you eat less. I’ve read that drinking during or after a meal does not affect your digestive enzymes so it’s ok to do.
  • Not in the car, not in front of the computer (not with a fox, not in a box)
  • Mindful eating… chewing certain # of times
  • Pam Sherman – not looking at what you are taking away but what you are adding (healthy food first)
  • Idea of intermittent fasting
  • Food Prepping
We love this colorful food prep example that Nancy Gardner at NG Energy shared with us in the Becoming Elli private Facebook group.
  • Recipes with protein ideas, other fan favorites.
  • Rice and Beans being a complete protein
  • 2 cups of veggies  or fruit handy for the drive or when you’re feeling weak
  • Tofu – yes or no?  How to make it more yummy
  • Protein powders that we like and how we eat them other than a protein shake

We also reviewed highlights from episodes in 2022 with inspirational guests:

Some of the topics we plan to cover during 2023 (based on suggestions from Facebook Becoming Elli Group … plus what we like to cover)
• Pelvic floor exercises
