Spoke 1: Lay the foundation for excellence by eating a healthy, plant-centric diet.

The American workforce is plagued by a crisis of convenience. When you’re juggling work responsibilities, family obligations, and any number of personal issues while trying to rise to an unrealistic standard of success, nutrition is the first to be thrown out the window.

Rewarding yourself with a doughnut in the morning, skipping lunch for back-to-back meetings, grabbing fast food on the way home from a long day at the office… these time-saving bad habits quickly integrate into your daily routine and become the norm.

Trust me, I know the pattern all too well.

When I reluctantly ditched the donuts and started batching green smoothies for the mornings, I was shocked by how quickly the results set in. I was quicker on my feet, my thinking was sharper and more strategic. Above all, I felt better.

Eating well can still be convenient, it just takes a little more mindful planning. In Reinvent the Wheel I will help demystify the complexities of healthy eating and give you the resources to craft your own meal plans that will lay the foundation for your personal excellence.
