Zone Challenge – Prepping Veggies

Hey guys!  Here is our latest Zone Challenge video with Jeremy showing us some ideas for prepping veggies.  Its not only important to have Protein ready to go but also to have veggies ready to grab and go or throw into a salad or stir fry.  Be sure to rinse all your veggies before cutting them and eating them.  About 6 months ago or so, Giermaine and I checked out Dr. Barry Sears’ book, “Top 100 Zone Foods”, from the library and read up on all the top Zone food choices.  Now we try to stick to the top Zone foods.  The top Protein choice is Haddock (fish), the Top Carb is Cauliflower, and the Top Fat source is Olive Oil from Italy.  Here are some of the best choices for Carbs.  Cauliflower, Blackberries, Blueberries, Kale, Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Red Cabbage, Collard Greens, Spinach, etc.  I highly recommend buying that book or checking it out from your local library.  If you are serious about your health, optimal performance, and dropping or keeping fat off then you need to take a look at these foods.  Enjoy.  Let me know if you have any questions.

    Hey Jeremy!

    I love the videos! I can help out with some of those curry recipes and stuff to.

    Anyway- quick question on this one. I read a few things here and there that say that veggies loose their nutrients after they are cut for more than 15 minutes. Do you notice the veggies going bad after a while?
