What do you see as the biggest nutritional mistake among age-groupers? Reward eating—especially with foods that contain a lot of sugar. Rather than eliminating foods with sugar, seek to reduce your intake of processed foods and replace with a simple diet of real food. I can meet all my nutritional needs from three basic meals and supplement with nuts and fruit. My meals: scrambled eggs with quinoa and olive oil; large salads with good fats, nuts, seeds and lean protein; wraps with hummus, lettuce and lean protein. Use a mirror and your mood to tell you how you’re doing. Don’t worry about perfection; just improve a little bit each season.
