A breakfast packed with protein and energy

Category: Recipes    

For a long time I was, like many, scared about eating anything like oatmeal because it was “too many carbs” – fast forward to now when so many of those myths for me have been debunked. I now make sure that having carbs, and I mean GOOD carbs, are a part of my daily routine. I never believe that low carb diets will ever work for me, I just am not a happy person to be around if I am eating minimal amounts of carbs. Oatmeal though is a great source of carbohydrates and ene ...

A quick breakfast to fuel your morning - Ezekiel Toast, Almond Butter and Coffee Shake

Category: Recipes    

Getting out of the house on time while still making a decently healthy and nutritious breakfast is always a challenge. I am always going a mile a minute in the morning so I have to be able to make something quick that I can also eat on the go if I need to. Recently since I have not been able to list heavy (an injury I have been dealing with for the last 2 months with inflammation and pain in my sternum and rib cage) I keep my morning meal consistent. I am a huge fan of Ezekiel bread, which many p ...

Making protein pancakes has never been easier using P28 Foods pancake mix

The snow does not seem to want to let up here in New Jersey which means we get snowed in a lot lately.

The best post workout breakfast combo

Question: What should I eat after I workout?

I get this question a lot so I figured it was time to share with you what a typical post-workout breakfast looks like for me. There are tons of great options for a healthy breakfast, but many are not optimal for goals when it comes to strength training or losing body fat. A “healthy” bowl of cereal can quickly become unhealthy by loaded in lots of sugars, fats and many times people do not actually eat the right servi ...

Typical post workout healthy breakfast - what to eat after lifting weights in the morning

Category: Fitness     Recipes    

20140312-200038.jpg

As a morning workout person I am up and out the door by 5:45am in order to get at least 1 hour of weight training in before work. The gym in the morning is less crowded and gives me room to get through a heavier lifting day without feeling rushed by people waiting for equipment I am using. On my heavy training mornings I eat a heavier breakfast post workout. This gives my body the fuel it needs to ...
