I started writing Meal Makeover Boot Camp in October of 2017. I honestly, just started writing. I didn’t know how but I knew this would end up being a book. I had a lot to share. There is so much confusion about what to eat and how much to eat.
These questions were not a topic just two generations ago. I mean, my grandmothers never worried about portion sizes, their micros or macros. They never spoke those words. They just knew that food had to be real, natural, and tasty.
My goal in writing this book was to go back to basics and learn how to eat for nutrition and pleasure. Food is meant to nourish you and enjoyed.
However, putting together a proper meal was always kind of a challenge for me. I knew how to eat a decent dinner, but breakfast and lunch lacked nutrition. So I started to research and read many books on the food.
I learned how to drink green smoothies for breakfast. It was totally weird at first, but once I got the hang of it, I never looked back. Next, I learned how to put together a nutritious lunch. My lunches always lacked nutrition. They were weak. I mean, I didn't get any energy out of them.
As I learned and put in practice everything I was learning, I realized that my energy levels were improving, my skin was brighter, and I just wanted to share everything I learned! As I put together this book, I realized that no book was like mine. Everyone talked about numbers and fancy terms, but no one simplified breakfast, lunch, and dinner. No one simplified these meals. So I did.
I hope that when you read this book, you will learn how to put together a proper meal that will nourish your body and make you smile.
