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.

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.
