Melissa Boufounos - CHN, Pn1  Founder MB Performance Nutrition I help OCR athletes recover faster & perform better @ocrnutrition Official Nutritionist @ocrwc ‘18 Free Macro Guide👇🏼

I was interviewed by @lindsey.heiserman for her Mind Muscle and Movement Podcast. ⁣

I still battle the thought of “I work out, I race, so I can eat anything I want.” Well....Melissa from @ocrnutrition talked on the podcast about creating a solid foundation, busted some myths, talked carbs, hydration and more. ⁣

Episode 105 is on fire! ⁣

Do you share the “I workout so I can eat” mentality??? ⁣

Going for a walk during a sun shower. ⁣
☀️ ☔️ ⁣
It’s important to listen to your body. Sometimes that means scaling back your scheduled training session. ⁣

With the humidity and the storms we’ve had lately, my Post Concussion Syndrome symptoms have been showing up more frequently. ⁣

I’ve been experiencing more tinnitus, headaches, neck pain and dizziness than usual. ⁣

My training plan called for an easy 40 mins recovery run but I knew even that was a bit too much to handle today. ⁣

So I went for a 20 minute walk in the rain instead. ⁣

Some movement is better than no movement. ⁣

Iced cold foam cappuccino from Starbucks is freaking delicious! (Made with coconut milk). ⁣

Had a reward on my gold card so it was free - my favourite kind. I never order a venti, but when it’s free, why not? ⁣

3 shots of espresso 😜 I’ll be bouncing off the walls today. ⁣

I don’t think breakfast could get more local than this! ⁣

Turkey bacon from @trulocal, fresh bread from a local bakery, homemade jam a friend made from organic berries they grew in their own garden, tomatoes from a friend’s garden and fresh Ontario peaches. ⁣

There is so much flavour here! ⁣

What are you having for breakfast today?⁣

Next in my chocolate series is a local 🇨🇦 brand we love for too many reasons to count. -
-
@Giddyyoyo foods are not the same as other organic or fair trade products. They go to great lengths to source foods nourished by mineral-rich soil & fresh water, and grown in healthy remote environments. -
-
Their products are untouched by genetically modified organisms, the practice of hybridization, and chemical solvents and metals regularly used in the practice of bringing foods to market. -
-
Not only can we feel good about where this food comes from, the ingredients are so good that I have no guilt in eating a few squares of chocolate for breakfast. It pairs nicely with a black French Press coffee ☕️-
-
Their chocolates are free of gluten, peanuts, dairy, soy, refined sugar and all other nasty ingredients that don’t need to be in chocolate. -
-
Oh, and they’re obviously super tasty, or I wouldn’t be featuring them at all. This flavour is one of my favourites -

This carb queen is supporting the @specialolympicsontario by purchasing this donut at @timhortons today. 🍩
I love donuts. Normally my standards are higher than this, especially because I try to avoid my food sensitivities, but it’s for a good cause. 😉
I was pleasantly surprised to see it’s a cruller donut under those sprinkles instead of a plain donut. 😋 -

If you’ve been following me long enough, you know I am a chocoholic.
You also likely know that I don’t eat dairy and I avoid gluten and soy as often as possible.
Finding good quality chocolate that is free from dairy, gluten, soy, GMOs and other processed ingredients and fillers can be difficult. Especially chocolate that actually tastes good!
I am going to start a new series where I feature chocolate that I have tried and approve as a Nutritionist and chocoholic.
First up is this new chocolate bar from @enjoylifefoods. I already love their chocolate chips and use them in my baking and recommend to all my dairy free clients so I knew this bar wouldn’t disappoint. I was right!
This bar tastes exactly like their chocolate chips and is free from gluten and 14 common allergens.
However, the only downfall would be that there is still a lot of sugar in this bar (13 g of sugar for 32 g of chocolate). I usually try and buy chocolate that is Fair Trade Certified as well but was unable to determine that status.
It’s a much better alternative than a typical candy bar and caters to allergy-friendly crowd, but it’s not a chocolate I would consume on a daily basis because of the sugar content.
I like to have a few squares of dark chocolate every day but not when it packs 13 g of added sugar to my day.

If you’re looking for a once in a while treat, this is a great option.
Do you recommend a brand of chocolate I can try that is gluten free, vegan, soy free and free of artificial colours and flavours? Comment below.
Want to send me some samples of your chocolate to feature in this series? Drop me a DM. -
