Sweet Spreads Giveaway for Your Sweet Tooth!

Sweet Spreads Giveaway

I don't do giveaways all that often on my blog, but every now and then I find a product I really love and want you guys to get to try it too.  I was introduced to Mama Mel (owner of Sweet Spreads) a while ago by one of my friends, Danielle, at Bodybuilding.com.  I ordered a sample pack of this coconutter which comes with a mini mason jar (the packaging is so cute) in every single flavor. Coconutte ...[Read More]

Healthy Taco Bowl!

TacoBowl

Does anyone else love taco bowls? I do! They are so quick, tasty, easy, and you can make them low-carb if you need to. This recipe is a heck of a lot cheaper in ingredients then what you pay at Chipotle, and I can whip this up in 3-4 minutes.  I usually use either grilled chicken that I cook in bulk or ground turkey breast that I season with taco seasoning. I make this often for lunch or a mid-mor ...[Read More]

True Lemon Giveaway

True Lemon Giveaway

I wrote a blog post a few weeks back about a healthier alternative to Crystal Light (click HERE to read that full post). It was completely unsolicited and I just wrote it because it is something I use myself and wanted to share. Somehow True Lemon caught wind of the article, and emailed me and told me they wanted to send me some samples to thank me for such a nice article. I was shocked and surpri ...[Read More]

The Best Protein Mug Cake You've Ever Tried

mugcake8

This month's Recipe of the Month was a challenge for me to make!  I've been playing around with mug cakes lately to curb my sweet tooth at night, but I've found that a lot of the time they end up really dry.  I found that adding a little extra unsweetened cocoa powder can really be a game changer and can make them really rich and moist.  I also added a healthy frosting to this one that makes the c ...[Read More]

This recipe was supposed to be posted yesterday, and I am so sorry it didn't get finished in time!  I spent the majority of the morning on the phone with my web hosting provider trying to figure out what on my website kept causing it to shut down!  We had a number caching issues ...[Read More]

Zucchini Tots

I saw this recipe on Pinterest the other day (if you aren't following me yet you should!  Click HERE to see my 'Clean Eats' board).  They looked delicious but had cheese, whole eggs, and italian bread crumbs and I knew I could clean them up even more.  So, I started experimenting in my kitchen and these turned out GREAT!  My 2-year old loved them and I did too!  We will be making these a lot more ...[Read More]

Benefits of Keeping a Workout Log

Workout Log Workout Journal

I always bring my workout log with me EVERY single time I go to workout, here is an example of a page from my log back in November 2011. I just bought a small 100-page Mead notebook at Office Depot (I put my hand there to give you a perspective of the size). There are a lot of different ways to track your workouts, this is just how I like to do it. I used to print off the logs from bodybuilding.co ...[Read More]
