Clean nutrition demands strategic planning. Brendy likes to track her food down to the gram. She always eats carbohydrates late in the day. If her carb content drops, she adds healthy fats to balance her macronutrient profile. She sticks to this game plan, even when she's traveling or unable to get the exact foods she wants.
"You can't always have the perfect food available for you," Scheerer says. "I'll do the best I can, whether it's a protein shake or a protein bar. It varies. I try to keep a clean diet, but it's really tough on my schedule."
Brendy likes to use black and cayenne pepper on every vegetable, fish, chicken, and steak in her meal plan. She adds cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice to oatmeal. These two spices make boring food fun, and they also offer unique health benefits of their own. Brendy gets creative when ordering at restaurants, as well.
"I always order dry," Scheerer says. "I ask for no salt, no oil, and I always ask for sauce on the side. It's the easiest way to avoid those extra calories that you may not actually eat if you were at home cooking it yourself. Any time I order chicken or something else on a salad, I ask them to make the chicken fresh. I don't mind waiting. Usually if the chicken has been premade, it has been sitting in salt, oil, and preservatives, so I try to avoid that as much as possible."
