It’s National Nutrition Month!

Welcome to National Nutrition Month (and a Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to you as well!).

This month I will be highlighting what I love most: FOOD!

I’ll be working to get you back into the kitchen with easy recipes and meal prep, as well as chats about proper nutrition and all the nutrition tricks needed to get the most health out of your body. I’ll focus on education and fun as well. Food shouldn’t be boring, even if you’re trying to lose weight! You’ll get the insider track on eliminating digestive disorders and meal prepping like a pro so dinner can be on the table in less time than it takes hittingĀ a drive through.

Remember, it’s NUTRITION, not exercise, that can make or break your health and wellness goals.

Be on the lookout for more and sign up over to the RIGHT ==========> to make sure you’re in on all the goods (even some freebies and sales THIS MONTH ONLY).

See you tomorrow!

Weight Loss Tutorial: Calories VS Portions

Hey guys!

Thirsty Thursday: Slimming Sips

 

 

Happy Thursday!

I’ll be posting another flat abs segment today, but I wanted to give you a couple of simple recipes that help keep bloat at bay and flatten the midsection.

Keep in mind that if you have ulcers or intestinal issues of any kind, you should ALWAYS consult your doc before embarking upon a change in diet. :)

Slimming Cranberry Sip:

I keep this on hand all day long.

In a large water jug (mine is 24 ounces) add pure water, splash of no sugar added cranberry juice and a splash of apple cider vinegar. The splashes are approximately 2 tablespoons. The drink should still taste like water with barely a hint of the other 2. Sip this throughout the day (you can refill and drink up to 4 jugs) to help increase kidney and liver function, which aids in fat utilization.

Morning Boost:

Every morning this is my routine: Place 6 oz hot water in cup with juice of 1/2 to 1 whole lemon and 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar. This cleanses the liver and helps with toxin elimination.

The Natural Smoothie:

No fancy powders or concoctions here. Just all natural foods to nourish the body. In a blender add:

6 ounces unsweetened almond or coconut milk

6 ounces water

4 ounces low-fat, plain Greek yogurt

1 small handful of strawberries

1 large handful of spinach

1/2 frozen banana

Blend until smooth, adding ice for a thicker smoothie

 

Enjoy these slimming sips on a daily basis to help bring your body into balance and flatten out those abs. Be on the lookout for another installment in the Foods for Flat Abs segment on YouTube today!
