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…

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: 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…

FOOD for thought: ACAI

I am probably Acai bowls’ #1 fan. Regardless of where I go, I always find myself tracking down an acai bowl one way or the other. My go-to place is Nektar Juice Bar, because they have a to DIE FOR PB (Peanut Butter) Bowl: An acai bowl mixed with peanut butter, granola, cashew milk and…

5-Minute Arm Workout

I’ve never been one to believe the whole “you can get a workout in just five minutes” speech. I mean, 5 minutes? It takes my microwavable dinner 5-minutes to heat up, how in the world can I break a sweat and feel as if I did a worthy workout in just 5 minutes? The truth…

Why We Shouldn’t Want a Victoria’s Secret Body

  I’ll be honest and say that I can’t help but envy Victoria’s Secret Models. I find myself walking into the store, doubting that I would ever look half as great as they do in their signature lingerie. Every year, I tune into the brand’s Fashion Show and dream of having their hot bods. With summer approaching,…
