Simple Avocado Toast by Fit Fathers

Try our simple, tasty and healthy lunch after an hour of cardio and strength training. Yes, of course it’s vegan. We layered toasted double fiber whole grain bread with traditional hummus, organic avocados and slightly warmed organic tomatoes. The heat within the tomatoes helps release the antioxidant lycopene which in turn protects against prostate cancer in men. Season with a dash of black pepper, garlic powder and Himalayan pink salt.

The meal was served with a Japanese sweet potato and a medley of sautéed collard greens, spinach, kale, beets, onions and Shiitake mushrooms. So, this recipe covers each macronutrient including healthy fats, complex cards and plant-based proteins. Eat clean and enjoy!

Join Fit Fathers’ founder Kimatni D Rawlins for 7 days of purity while consuming fresh, organic fruits and vegetables to clean the gastrointestinal and prepare your body for the spring season. When the mind, body and soul are free of toxins and environmental contaminants, clarity takes presidence and inner truth moves to the forefront.

Beginning Monday March 16th we will eat fruits in the morning, fruits and veggies for lunch and veggies for dinner. Only water shall be drank in-between. Though, you have the option to also juice your produce and make smoothies as long as the ingredients are just fruits and veggies. Vegetables shall be eaten raw or lightly steamed in water. Please, no oils, vegan butters, supplements or snacks. We will eat like herbivorous animals who are anatomically and physiologically adapted to eating plant material, for example foliage, as the main component of their diet. Afterward Fit Fathers also suggests a colonic to further cleanse the colon and remove old debris from your pipes.

The formula is simple but the results will be tremendous. Pass along as our foundation motto is education first: Each 1 Teach 1! Join at 7-Day Fruit & Veggie Lifestyle Challenge

Brown Bag It!

Fit-Fathers-Veggie-BLT-TLTWords by Kimatni D. Rawlins

Anytime my wife and the mother of our two daughters heads out on a long flight I hook her up like a Fit Father should. No need in searching for GMO, processed or fast foods in the airport when 20 minutes of home prep can lead to nutritional happiness in the friendly skies. Moreover, on the road you never know what mood your taste buds will be in so I always prepare a few options for Misa to choose from.

Meal 1) TLT = Tempeh, Lettuce and Tomatoe sandwich on whole grain toast. But I use kale instead.

Meal 2) Fresh, steamed, organic kale and onions seasoned with nutritional yeast, garlic and Braggs Liquid Aminos served over quinoa.

Fit-Fathers-Kale-Yeah

Meal 3) Fit Fathers Bowl: Brown Rice, the kale, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, tomatoes and onions.

Clean Green Power Machine

Clean Grren Power Protein ShakeGreen shakes oftentimes get a bad rap just for coloring alone, not to mention most individuals are hesitant to readjust their taste buds. Yet, these drinks are potent, nutritional and can be made to taste just as good as a fruit shake or better.

In your Vitamix, add coconut water, ice, banana, pineapple, broccoli florets, flaxseeds, oranges and kale leaves. Blend well and give it a go! Drink at least 45-minutes before your workout to absorb the nutrients and begin converting the mixture into glucose for fuel. Replenish immediately after exercising so your body can begin the healing process.
