Grocery Shopping For The 90 Day Challenge with Cooking With Sensei
 
Welcome to our first video for this year’s 90 Day Challenge!  Our goal is to get better results this year by shopping smarter and prepping better quality meals! When you start out it could be overwhelming in the beginning but know it gets easier with some practice.  

90 Day Challenge: Trusting The Process

Kicking off this year’s 90 Day Challenge, its important to talk about “the process”.  The process describes things changes that you will start to see and feel over the next three months.  People spend billions of dollars every year in products by companies that promise them a quick and easy way to transform your body without hard work or sacrifice.  But like they say, if it’s too good to be true, it might be. 

The Goal Of Cooking With Sensei 

One of the goals of Cooking With Sensei is to encourage and educate that to get healthy, you don’t need  to depend on outside food sources, or meals that are either frozen or packed by a stranger.   Put very simply,  we’re helping you take control of what you eat.  By focusing on prepping, planning and cooking clean – we don’t have to spend a ton of money on purchasing pre-packed meals  or concentrate on counting points. By following a plan and sticking to it, we are here to help you because you’re going to know what to eat, when to eat, and learn the importance of why were eating it.  

If you know me, you know that I love to eat. But the thing I love more than eating is teaching people how to prep, cook and eat fresh healthy colorful meals on a daily basis that will earn the same (if not better) results. 

There is no starving yourself or skipping meals in this program. Instead, we focus on eating 4-5 small meals that YOU made (and enjoy) without ever having to deprive yourself of a meal or consider going into starvation mode.   Remember this, if you burn more calories than you consume and you’re gonna lose weight..  


The Importance Of Food Shopping

Here’s a quick and easy secret about grocer shopping. When you get to the super market, focus on shopping on the perimeter of the supermarket. The outside of any grocery store is where you will find the fresh food. 

When I go shopping, I always start by picking out my fruits and vegetables – this is where the vitmains and nutrients (and color) for any meal come from.  As I’m move around I concentrate on my proteins – a I stop at the seafood department and then make my way to the meat department to pick up my chicken, ground turkey and lean beef.   Lastly, I swing around to the eggs and dairy aisle.    I usually don’t have to go in the middle of the store except for my brown rice, rice cakes, quinoa and spices.   Once I have everything I go home and start preparing so that way I’m ready for my next meal.    If you fail to plan, you plan to fail, so prepare those meals and let’s make it the most successful 90 day challenge.

Follow me every week to stay motivated.
