Recipes: Egg & Sausage Casserole

Thursday June 15, 2017

Meet Sally.

Sally is a stay-at-home mom with errands to run all the time. Her mornings are packed: she drives the kids to school, does some grocery shopping, then comes home to wipe down the whole house.

By the time she catches her breath, it’s already lunchtime, yet she still hasn’t eaten anything. At all.

She’s on the fast lane to burnout, sickness, and fatigue.

If you’re in need of some fuel for the day, just like Sally, this egg and sausage casserole is the thing to take you mornings to the next level! Proteins and fiber are LOADED into the dish, and you skip out on a lot of unhealthy carbs, too.

Make some one morning, then portion out the rest for a week of irresistibly good breakfast.

How to Find the Right Workout Accountability Partner(s)

Friday June 09, 2017

Be honest: what does it feel like to work out alone?

For a few people, they enjoy working out at their own pace, doing the workouts THEY want to do. More often than not, these people usually have years of experience in the gym and know what they’re doing.

For the rest of the crowd, the gym can be confusing and intimidating. There are machines that look like robots, medicine balls you have no idea how to use, and, oh man—where do you even start working out?

Now, think back to a time when you did something new, something uncomfortable…with a friend. I’m sure you felt more confident than you would have been going at it alone.

Fitness is the same exact way. Well actually, life is the same way. No one gets far without others.

I want to get to the benefits of having an accountability partner when working out, something you may have never even considered. But first, why do people insist on being lone wolves when it comes to getting fit?

Recipes: Tasty Cheese Meals

Friday June 02, 2017

Don’t you just love cheese?

I mean, you can melt it into a delicious filler for a sandwich or burger. You can also throw it onto crackers or with veggies to add some sharpness to a snack. With a wide range of cheeses to choose from, the flavors you can come up with are nearly endless.

The only drawback to cheese is that it piles on excessive fat and calories. Anyone that’s dieted before knows that those those are two absolute diet killers.

I’ve got great news for you: there are plenty of meals that are cheesy and healthy! It’s not a culinary sin to indulge in cheese; you just have to do it the right way.

Today, we’re going to dive into a few cheese recipes that might just flip your world upside down. Hope we make your life a little “cheddar” (that was about as cheesy as these meals)!

Foods You Might Not Believe Are Loaded With Sugar

Friday May 26, 2017

Imagine an hourglass completely filled on one side. Picture that hourglass tilting a full 180°, forcing the sand on one side to slowly pile up on the other.

You’ll slowly start to see a mountain of sand form.

Now imagine that the sand was all the sugar America’s consumed this past year. Boy, that mound of sugar would probably be higher than Mt. Everest!

We love sugar. Its sweetness can comfort us when we’re down; it can also add a nice cherry on top (pun intended) after a hearty meal.

Unfortunately, sugars are bad for the body. They tack on calories that people don’t need if they’re trying to stay in shape. That’s why so many diets abstain from as much sugar as possible.

Or so they think…

There are a lot of foods that people love to tout as “healthy” that are actually stuffed with sugar. You might know sugar by one of its aliases: high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, corn sweetener, honey, molasses, glucose, sucrose, dextrose, or maltose.

Here’s a quick guide to some foods you’ll think twice about when it comes to sugar.
