Far too often, when I start coaching a client on improving their food choices, they will say to me, “Just tell me what to eat.”

Let me be clear, I don’t ever tell clients exactly what they should eat on any given day. That is not what I do, that is what diets do.

I don’t do diets and neither should you.

The work I do teaches you how to nourish your best life and, of course, what you are fueling your life with has a profound effect on the “quality” of your life.

So what do I do as a health coach? I educate you about food: what is in your food, how your body responds to food, and how to improve your food choices. What I don’t do is choose your food for you, ever. Why not? Because, ultimately, it disempowers you, and greatly reduces your chance of success in the long run.

That being said, we all have days that we get bored with our food and we just wish someone would give us an idea or ten about how to shake things up.

In light of this, I have some ideas for you to make tomorrow a little easier.
