As hectic and sometimes as disorganized as one nighters or extended tours may be, you just can never find the time or the right fuel to give you the energy to perform your best. Backstage food leaves a lot to be desired and a soggy burger or a stack of pancakes just ain’t cutting it. You need to create a lifestyle, a habit of eating healthy food and stick to it.

It’s easier than it sounds, really. Today’s guest, Kariman Pierce will give you the lowdown on how to take care of yourself and your band mates. For those creatives that work at home or in your studios, having a kitchen and setting a schedule make planning meals easy and affordable.
