Our Current Workout Playlist

Working out is hard enough as it is, but if you have a great playlist to distract you from your muscles being in pain (hey, we aren’t all Olympic athletes) it makes everything better. Even though our fave songs can change everyday, here’s a workout playlist I can’t stop listening to. Have any other songs…

Health Nut: Alternatives to the Gym

There was time when I considered myself a gym rat. I couldn’t work out any other way. I needed to go to the weight area. I needed to try every machine. My cardio rested on the Elliptical machine located in the right corner of the building by the window (Yes, I had my own spot)….

Food for Thought: Vegan Pizza

Being a lactose-intolerant has it’s downfalls. I’m not able to enjoy dairy products, like everyone else, simply because my system will corrupt. Would I like to order a Bean and Cheese Burrito with no worries? Of course! Would I want to eat that Cheeseburger with not a care in the world? Obviously! But my body…

At home Kettle Bell Workout

Alright everyone! It’s Workout Wednesday! Lately I have been busy writing more papers than I would like, but I have dedicated at least 30 minutes-1 hour each day to do something active. I found this awesome, at-home workout video on YouTube and couldn’t help but try it. Be prepared to sweat, because it not only…

Health Nut: Cookie Butter Madness

If you have never stepped foot in a Trader Joe’s, then I feel sad for you. If you’re completely anti-healthy grocery stores, then you might want to reconsider when I tell you that there is a certain product that Trader Joe’s offers to customers that is Heaven in a jar. At first bite, all you’ll hear is…

Food For Thought: Oatmeal Obsessed

It seems as if I eat oatmeal at least once everyday. When I’m not eating, I’m browsing food recipes from Pinterest or drooling over Instagram posts from food bloggers I follow. Now in every picture I always see Vigilant Eats oatmeal packs and figured I could try it to find out what the hype was…

Day at the Farmer’s Stand

Call me weird, but I always feel like a giddy little kid, anytime I get to go grocery shopping. Being that I’m now on Spring Break, I have been able to take some “Me Time” and do what I enjoy doing best. After visiting a local farmer’s stand I love, I left with a “Yummy Bundle.” It…

Meatless Monday: Pumpkin Grilled Cheese

I might as well be a slave to Pinterest. Regardless of what I’m doing, I will always find a way to browse recipe ideas on my Pinterest feed. Now I try to actually replicate the recipes and try them for myself, but sometimes my busy schedule doesn’t always allow that. Fortunately today I was able…

Food for Thought: Meatless Monday Sandwich

I’m not really sure why, but every Monday I tend to abide by the “Meatless Monday” trend. Ironically whatever I’m eating doesn’t contain any meat and sometimes it’s not such a bad idea to have a break from meat. After trying this Veggie Sandwich while on a road trip, I couldn’t help to be inspired…

Food for Thought: Hummus Wrap

  “Can I get a veggie sandwich, without the bread?” For today’s “Meatless Monday,” I thought I would share a different take on a veggie meal filled with protein and healthy goodness that could make you forget about eating slices of bread for the day (Don’t worry, it will see you soon enough). While browsing my…

Food for Thought: Loaded Sweet Potato

I may sound different, but I actually prefer sweet potatoes over regular ones. I’m not sure what it is, but I feel instant gratification to order anything sweet potato related when I see it on the menu. Today was no exception. I’ve been obsessing and drooling over the healthy food pictures on  Sol Cal Cafe  ‘s instagram….

Food for Thought: Post-Workout Greens

Usually after working out, I always find myself thinking two things: Why do I have to be so hungry? WTF do I eat without eating my workout away? Normally my go-to is always something having to do with fruit. Whether it’s a smoothie, peanut butter and banana, fruit with yogurt, etc. Lately, I’ve surprised myself…
