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 healthy way to grill asparagus

Category: Recipes    

Nothing beats fresh asparagus as a side dish or a healthy meal prep addition. One spear of asparagus is only around 3 calories but is packed with nutrition.

Asparagus is also a great antioxidant and has been shown to help detoxify the body. It contains high levels of the amino acid asparagine, whic ...

Healthy Meal Prep Ideas to Pack for the Day

Category: Fitness     Recipes    

As many of you know from reading my blog I am a HUGE advocate of meal prepping. I don’t think I would be able to stick to any kind of routine with what I eat on a daily basis if I wasn’t planning and preparing for what I am going to eat daily. With a hectic work schedule that leaves me little to no time to go out for lunch or snacks, I make sure to pack all of my meals with me in the morning. This has been a practice of mine for over five years now and has been a big part of my succes ...

Whether you work a full time job with a crazy commute, are juggling the house and kids or are in school and bouncing from class to class, let’s face it – sometimes it’s easier to just grab something on the go from the vending machine or local convenience store. While it does take more work and time to pack and prepare your meals I have to say that doing so has kept me on ...

A chocolate greens smoothie that doesn’t taste like grass

Category: Recipes    

I have to admit when I wrote this title I didn’t even realize just how funny it was, but then when I re-read it I had to leave it. How many times have you tried to add greens powder to your protein shake and all it did was taste like grass, literally. I never really got the hang of using greens powder with a protein shake. I always used to add it to my green juices, which I make with an apple, cucumber, spinach, water, 1 lemon squeezed and a scoop of From the Earth Greens powder Read more

Perfectly Seasoned Crock Pot Organic Beef Chili

I was so excited to finally break out my brand new Cuisinart Slow Cooker this evening and make my very first recipe.

After seeing lots of my friends sharing recipes of what they make in their crock pots and slow cookers I decided to break this bad boy out and make some delicious chili. Slow cookers are great if you have the time to let your food really m ...
