The Zone Meal Treasure Chest

A sound nutritional plan sends markers of health in the right direction and prevents sickness.  A solid meal should make you feel more focused and full of energy, in addition to satisfying your hunger. In other words, you should feel "in the Zone."  Being in the Zone is simply finding the right combination, quality, and quantity of marconutrients and timing the meal well – resulting in a beautiful harmonious balance of hormones.

This ideal meal is not going to be the same for everyone.  By following Zone parameters for your body composition, you've only started your path to wellness.  A Zone meal for one person may not be ideal for everyone.  For instance, when I have a meal consisting of 4oz sliced deli turkey, 2 apples, and 12 almonds – I know that this meal will leave me hungry.  Yet, if I have 4oz grilled chicken breast, 2 cups of steamed broccoli, 2 whole peaches sliced up, and 12 almonds – I feel like dy-na-mite!

What I'd like you to do is create a little treasure chest (a shoebox would do) of Zone meals that make you feel great.  This meal should also have a time of day associated with it, i.e. breakfast, post workout, late-night snack…  As you build a menu of Zone treasures, your ability to live in the Zone becomes easier and easier.  This will result in long life of perfect performance, balanced hormones, and high levels of energy.  Okay, totally exaggerating, but you get the idea.
