Protein. In the health and fitness world, that word is thrown around like it’s made of gold. Everybody’s talking about it, everybody’s eating it, and everybody’s drinking it. But why? And how much should you be getting? And what foods are good sources? So let’s discuss.
Combining a clean diet with exercise several days a week can transform your body and your life. And these days, most people are looking to do exactly that! But it’s typically not as straightforward as it sounds. “Sticking to my workout plan is so easy and fun and I just love it!” said no one EVER! Yes, there are days when I look forward to working out. But there are also days when I DREAD it. Or I intend to work out and other things come up. Then my one rest day turns into two, and then moves into three, and now it’s much harder to get back on track. So how do you make exercising work for you?
If you’ve ever perused Pinterest before (and honestly, who hasn’t?), then you’ve likely stumbled upon thousands and thousands of overnight oats recipes. You might be thinking, “Why in the world are there so many of these things?” And the answer is, of course, because they’re AMAZING! Your next move is to try them out! If you’ve already tried them out, and LOVED them (because, again, who hasn’t?), then I’m here to share my new favorite flavor 🙂
If you’re looking to eat healthy, stay on track for your diet, or really just make your life simpler, then meal prep is for you! Especially if you have a little one in the house, meal prep is DEFINITELY for you! By spending just a few hours on Sunday, I’m able to make all of my breakfasts and lunches for the entire week! It honestly makes the week so much smoother, and helps me stick to healthy options. When I find myself starving at work before lunch, I’m able to grab a quick, prepared snack rather than something I’ll regret from the vending machine. If I didn’t have a six month old, having all my breakfasts made would mean I get to sleep in a little bit longer… but what is sleep when you have kids???
