I’ve had the pleasure of working with the amazing Allison Tibbs for over a year. I was fortunate enough to be part of the interview team who ultimately hired her at Equinox Pine Street and I knew within the first minute of talking with her she was going to be an asset to our club, to the fitness community and to my own personal growth. Simply put, I love this fierce woman.
Allison talks the talk and walks the walk. She is an inspiring coach, athlete, businesswoman and - getting to the point of today’s post - unparalleled food prep goddess. If you don’t follow her already, do so immediately. She is constantly sharing simple, delicious and healthy recipes and food prep strategies. Check her out online, on Instagram and on Facebook.
She was kind enough to let me “borrow” these five recipes I learned from her latest clean eating challenge. My personal favorite is her take on a traditional Greek salad. It literally makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Allison uses coconut oil to grill her chicken. I gravitate more toward olive oil (my partner’s last name is Haralabopoulos, need I say more?). Both are a-ok so long as you get the “virgin” kind. In fact, in a perfect world you’d cook with both regularly giving variety to your diet. (Read more about EVOO and coconut oil here and here and decide what you prefer.) And for a great low sodium general seasoning try Trader Joe’s “Everyday Seasoning” or “Lemon Pepper”.
