Eating Out and Staying on Track

Eating out can be a major cause for anxiety when on a fitness or nutrition regimen, especially when you’re just starting out. You feel like you’re in control of what you put in your body when you can buy and prepare the food yourself, but the moment someone wants to go out to eat you become a little nervous because you just don’t know how you’re going to be able to stay on track and eat out at the same time. You feel like you can’t indulge or enjoy a night out or you’ll ruin your progress, right? Wrong! What if I told you that you can make eating out work for your goals? What if I told you that you could still enjoy some pizza every week (like this lovely pizza from my date with my handsome man last week)? So let’s chat about it. Food shouldn’t make you nervous.

What's Supp?

“Greens: Contains 3+ servings of fruits, veggies, and greens. It helps to alkalize your stomach (this means balancing your body’s pH). It can help digestion, bloating, and more. I add a scoop of this to a cup of water every morning. If you can’t handle the grassy taste, you can add a squirt of Mio or another water flavoring brand. I always order it from Amazon, as it’s normally more pricey at health food stores. They have plenty of different flavors such as cocoa, berry, citrus, and more. The original, extra large kind (with 60 servings) is currently super discounted with Amazon Prime! Click here to save on it!

How to Celebrate National Oatmeal Day

Most of you probably have no idea, but October 29th is National Oatmeal Day. If you’re anything like me and you eat oatmeal on the regular (and when I say on the regular, I mean sometimes eating oatmeal two and three times a day), you probably want to celebrate with a giant bowl of warm oats with more toppings than your undersized bowl can handle. I mean lets be real, when it comes to making oatmeal, there’s not a bowl out there that’s big enough!…

Sugar Free v. Fat Free

“I'm sure we've all been in the grocery aisle shopping for a certain food that has a million different varieties that included fat-free or sugar-free. Ever wondered if one was truly better than the other? Ever wondered which one was healthier? I know I have. I wanna talk through each of their pros and cons so you can have a better understanding of which, if any, is better for you!”

Or that one time you hired a personal trainer and they gave you daily macronutrient goals to target and you were just kind of confused about it. Ever wonder what a carbohydrate ACTUALLY is? When they say carbs and fats are bad, is that true? Are you eating enough protein? WHAT ON EARTH DO THOSE COLORFUL GRAPHS IN MYFITNESSPAL MEAN?!”
