Summer is on its way, and it’s time for cookouts, parties, music festivals, and baseball! And although you guys tend to keep busy with softball leauges, outdoor treks, and general shenanigans, your love handles can still find a way to affix themselves to your newly sun-kissed statures.
What’s a fella to do? The good news is that you don’t have to eat salad every day. Your favorite foods can be prepared in a way that makes them delicious AND nom-worthy. So, good sirs, put down your Sam Adams and read on.
As we go through life, we're constantly categorizing (whether consciously or subconsciously) everything that crosses our path. He is this. She is that. These are different. That's the same. Yet, where does this lead us? No day is ever the same. And it’s this sense of variety that most of us thrive on and live for. So, why is that when it comes to analyzing our eating habits, we feel the need to categorize them as either “good” or “bad”? Let's dig into this a bit further.
It's hard to believe that strawberry season is right around the corner. We’re all quite familiar with these sweet, tangy, and bright red berries. But did you know that on top of being naturally delicious, they’re also a rockstar superfood?
The expectation for college students is to eat whatever you can, whenever you can, as long as it's cheap. But I didn't. I started meal planning sophomore year. Sundays were spent seeking out deals in the local ads, creating a meal plan and shopping list, grocery shopping, and finally, preparing food for the week.

With summer in sight, more of us are feeling self-conscious about our bodies -- and will enjoy the season less as a result. That's according to a new survey commissioned by Anytime Fitness.

Weighing over 400 pounds made me feel very nervous when walking into any place, let alone the gym. I always thought everyone was staring and judging me. It can be incredibly intimidating.

"If You Think You Can't, You Can."
Warrior Dash is a mud-crawling, fire-leaping, extreme running event. This fierce running series is held on the most challenging and rugged terrain across the globe. And now, it’s also a great way to help St. Jude Children's Research Hospital save children from cancer and other deadly diseases.
Growing up, pretty much my only experience with peas were the sad, mushy guys found in the canned goods aisle of the grocery store. They were okay (and a cheap and easy way to make sure my parents could get some veggies into us kids), but it wasn't until I had farm-fresh peas for the first time that I realized a fresh, sweet, bright green pea in the spring can almost be a religious experience! They are bursting with flavor and nutrients and can be used in so many ways—I encourage you to hop on the pea train!
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?
