Easy and Delicious Clean Eating Mayonnaise
Clean Eating Mayonnaise I recently embarked on an epic nutritional adventure with the legendary Sagi Kalev.  As part of the process, he has given me a short (and I mean SHORT) list of acceptable foods to use in my meal plan for the time being.  This was a scary proposition at first, as many of the foods -and ESPECIALLY herbs and spices-I was unfamiliar with using on a regular basis.  I feared I would have to resort to nothing but unseasoned chicken and spinach at each and every meal.  The GREAT news is, that having that short list really forced me to get out of my comfort zone and start...

Cheat vs. Treat
So It’s ok to Cheat?! A cheat, by definition and connotation, is just a bad thing to do.  But we hear the phrase ‘cheat meal’ or ‘cheat day’ all the time in health and fitness circles.  This article from Tosca Reno, author of The Eat Clean Diet will help explain why a ‘cheat’ is still a bad thing, until you give it a new name….TREAT. “Eating Clean is a lifestyle choice, which means you adapt it to fit your life. If you must have birthday cake, then have it.

Cheat Meal, Cheat Day, Refeed…Is it important?
Why you shouldn’t cheat your cheat meal! You may have heard the term ‘cheat meal’, ‘cheat day’ or ‘refeed’.  While the term you choose to use is not important (well, maybe it actually is…more on that later), the thing itself definitely is.  “Cheating is good?” you ask?  Under normal circumstances no, you should never cheat on a test or a spouse of course! But when you are ‘dieting’ or restricting your calories to achieve weight/fat loss, the use of a ‘cheat’ can be vitally important! Why a cheat meal is... Read More

What is Clean Eating?
Clean Eating is What?! I get a lot of confused looks when I mention Clean Eating to people.  I can just imagine what’s going through their heads…”she wants me to wash my food?  Perhaps spray on some kind of cleaner-like windex??”  No, not at all! Clean Eating is simply the idea of eating food that is in it’s original, natural form-unprocessed or very minimally processed.  What does ‘processed’ mean?  The definition varies slightly, but it’s generally any food that has artificial ingredients and generally comes in a package, box or bag.  The...

Bethany-Beachbody Challenge and Shakeology Success Story
When I started doing a TurboKick class, two awesome things happened. I found out that I loved TurboKick, and my instructor—and Team Beachbody Coach—introduced me to Shakeology when she gave me a packet to try. I loved it so much, I went onto her site and ordered a 30-day supply immediately. That was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life. Before Shakeology, I’d TRY to eat healthier, but I always ended up eating a few large meals a day and never really sticking to a diet plan. As a nursing student with two jobs, I felt like fast food was the only thing I had time for. But... Read More
