I get a lot of questions about my lifestyle habits, in terms of food intake.  The answer is pretty simple for me - Intermittent Fasting.  It's always worked for me over the years, and now that I'm deeper into this fitness game, I'm more well-informed and I tackle my 16:8 method with ease and simplicity.   Fasting for sixteen hours and then spreading your predetermined calorie and macro intake into the remaining eight seems like

Did you know that there's  little bit of Superhero in all of us?  There have been many discussions had, surrounding which superpower you would want to have, and what you'd do with it.  But you do have one.  You have the extraordinary power to vaporize your enemy. We're talking about fat, here. I had read up on this very subject some months ago, and I was quite surprised by my findings.  I always thought you "sweat your

When it's all said and done, if you cut this into 15 servings like I did, it's 98 calories per.  12 servings is 113 calories per.  Not only that, but it's got some PROTEIN in it, guys!  Who doesn't need a little more protein!?  Of course, you will most likely use a variation of the ingredients I use, so make sure you measure and add up/calculate your calories.  But I don't see it differing much

Nope, I'm being serious.  I made these gorgeous things yesterday and I was equally parts horrified as I was stunned, from the time I started making them, to the time they actually met my taste-buds. Again, I topped these with a little bit of Halo Top Vanilla Bean ice cream, and no I don't work for Halo Top - I'm just a huge advocate of theirs, and still nothing else compares to them.

My sister has suffered through many stomach issues that kept her awake all night, kept her miserable, and couldn't be figured out.  Recently, she decided to go vegan, and those stomach issues she suffered through for years had diminished almost immediately. Her birthday was March 13th, and mind-you, the rest of our family outside she and I have no real inclination of eating healthy, let-alone some "strange fad diet" like going vegan.  When my mother

I saw the above quote today, and it spoke to me.  "Fix another queen's crown...without telling the world it was crooked."  Fix her crown because you are her equal.  Fix it, because you would rather her do the same for you, and not let you walk around looking disheveled.  Of course we're not talking about actual headgear, here.  We're talking about women supporting women.  Women helping women.  Women empowering women. I am fortunate enough to be surrounded

I DO say.  Granted, it won't be completely the same until I buy a food processor that will turn my concoctions into actual butter texture, however this awesome but TEDIOUS recipe is plenty worth trying.  Especially considering it's only 90 calories per 2 tbsps. vs the 190 that Nutella has.  And if you love Nutella as much as I do, and you also love to incorporate it into your FITISH baking efforts, I highly recommend

One of the things I cannot stress enough is that if your diet is boring, so will you be.  I ate the same thing day-in and day-out for several months when I first started dieting, and all it did was make me crazy for my cheat-day.  It doesn't have to be that way, but it took me a little while to figure that out. I challenge myself regularly to take my favorite foods and find

LAWD have mercy...  Yanno, it probably does get old to whomever reads these recipes, how excited I get over them.  Each one is my favorite - I know, I know.  But I truly wouldn't recommend these things if I didn't fall madly in love with these dishes.  So!  Let the recommendations commence.  I started with the potatoes because the cook time is longer for them, and I'm all about condensing my time in the kitchen, if
