What’s your favorite thing to have after your workout? I don’t really do much for supplements, the occasional protein shake and BCAA’s but that’s about it. (I love real food way too much to supplement more than that). My favorite thing to mix up right now is some fresh homemade iced tea (just plain green tea brewed and set in the fridge, I don’t like sweet tea), a splash of cranberry juice, my lemonade flavored BCAA’s and a squeeze of fresh lemon picked off of the citrus trees here at my apartment! 🌵🍋

The cleansing tools (easy to digest snacks!) help of course 😋 Detoxing is one of our bodies primary functions. We are literally detoxing every second of every day! So much so, that if your liver thinks it has too much to deal with, it stores excess toxins in your fat cells. 😖 Because most of us don’t take the time to give our digestive system a rest we leave a lot of these toxins stored behind in our body☠️ That’s why, if you have ever had a Detox, you know it works! You can literally see in someone’s skin/face/eyes etc when they finish, is clearer/younger looking/whiter.🧒🏻👶🏻👁 Here are the 10 signs your body is screaming out for a detox:
1. Low Energy
3. Brain Fog / Unable to Focus
4. Feeling Depressed
5. Overweight / Trouble Losing Weight
6. Trouble Sleeping
7. Sexual Disfunction
8. Unexplained Headaches
9. Unexplained Soreness / Stiffness
10. Skin Problems/ Allergic reactions
Goals bring action.
When you write goals that challenge, excite and scare you just a little you will be motivated to take action.
Every day will have direction and give you reason to be proactive.
Do you write your goals down? Do you go back to them everyday for direction?
Do your goals excite you and inspire you?
If they don’t, you need to write new goals that inspire you to get moving and working towards something that will bring some passion back to your life.

SWIPE🔛 While so many cooking oils offer health benefits, it is important to manage your consumption. Fat is essential but not in large quantities. A recent study showed that the average of 57,000 excess calories a year come from oil!!! So here are some helpful tips on where to start when it comes to cooking with oil:
1. There are plenty of healthy fats in many of the foods we eat daily such as avocados, nuts, cheese, olives, and meat. If you eat a well balanced diet, it is likely that you are getting enough fat without added oils. And by not measuring your oil while cooking, you can easily increase your caloric intake by hundreds of calories a day!
2. Not all oils heat the same. Oils like butter and olive oil have a relatively low “smoke point” meaning that once the oil begins to heat, it takes no time at all for it to burn up in the pan and possibly even contribute to burning your food. We suggest opting for an oil that burns at a higher temperature like coconut or avocado oil.
3. Heat your pan before pouring the oil in. Oil can burn just like all food and if the pan burns up the oil while trying to heat, you will have wasted a small amount. Rather wait until your pan is heated to measure a perfect amount just before adding your food item. A bonus tip if you are making veggies for dinner, measure out your oil and then toss the veggies in the oil before throwing it all into a heated pan.
4. Certain foods are more absorbent than others. Mushrooms for example act as a sponge when cooked in oil and will be more likely to cause you to pour excess amounts into the pan.
