I'm pretty adventurous when it comes to foods. I'm always ready to dive fork-first into a new item I find on the store shelf. But even considering my culinary weird streak, I was pretty skeptical when I first heard about the concept of black bean brownies.
When you have a race or other athletic event on the calendar, you follow a training regimen to prepare yourself. But are you equally intentional about the food you consume leading up to the big day?
This guide explains the why, who, what, and when of healthy carbohydrate-loading before a race. And it's not all garlic bread, pasta, and potatoes!
With spring suddenly upon us, I’m sure many of you are looking to take your fitness to the next level. After all, we all want to look lean and fit for the summer, right? And many of us want to perform at our best when it comes to training and competition too! Whether you’re looking to run a few extra miles outside, join a new boot camp class, or get back into your favorite warm weather sport, one thing is for certain—you need to adequately fuel your body.
Let's face it, we are all creatures of habit. We love eating certain foods often and frequently. Heck, a while back I went through a string cheese phase and man could you see it in my diet tracker. To make things easier for you, we thought it would be a good idea to show you how to create a custom meal and how to add it to your diet tracker!
The snow is finally melting, the trees are budding, and my excitement for spring is building. This is the time of year for growth! Farmers' markets will soon be here and fresh, affordable produce will be abundant. All the smells and colors engage my senses. Now’s the time to “taste the rainbow,” figuratively speaking.
Fueling your body with good food is an essential part of training for any race but especially for marathons. Getting the right nutrients will give you the energy you need to sustain the long weekly runs leading up to the big race. A nutrition plan is as important as a mileage plan.
Did you know that all-natural mud smoothies are a great source of carbohydrates and protein? All you need is some organic dirt, free-range worms, and water, and you'll have the perfect post-workout snack!

Real food. What is “real food,” you ask? And, how do I make sure I’m eating it? Let's talk!
I don’t know about you, but now that it's officially Spring, I’m suddenly craving lighter and brighter flavors! Goodbye root veggies and roasting pans, hello fresh and raw veggies from the garden!
