Korean beef

This recipe was adapted from a Korean beef egg roll recipe I found on pinterest (I don’t do a lot of deep frying for meals, sorry). I don’t know authentic this actually is… I’ve only had Korean a few times and I’ve always loved it! Sweet and spicy beef though- what’s not to like?! This recipe […] Read more…

high protein bread

I’d like to preface this by saying there’s nothing wrong with bread or carbs =) Sometimes though, to hit your protein goals for the day, you want something other than meat. For me personally, I’m on low carbs getting ready for a show, and I do miss things like bread, and can rarely fit that […] Read more…

Meal plans

I think the #1 most requested service I get is that of meal plans. Y’all KNOW that nutrition can make or break your goals! This is TOTALLY accurate of how I approach said meal plans…. Not! (Plus- I tend to distrust male health “pros” with less muscle than myself. But whatev). So the whole objective […] Read more…

Adjusting your macros

I recently talked about how to set up your basic macros here. That can get your started but just know you can make adjustments. When I set macros for my clients, whether for flexible dieting or a set meal plan, I keep a couple different things in mind. Are they trying to build lots of muscle? […] Read more…

Starting out your macros

I want to preface this post by saying that this approach may not be THE solution for everyone. But I do believe it can work for MOST!  I’ve written about “IIFYM” or “flexible dieting” in 3 other posts! You can check them out here, here, and here. In these posts, I explain what macros are, what flexible dieting is, and […] Read more…

Body Love <3

I wanted to recap a few things that have been on my mind since we did the February “Love your body” challenge, and also announce our winner! Julie Weaver scored the high of 92 points! Not only did she kill it, but she’s pregnant! It’s pretty tough to commit to eating healthier, avoiding sugar, and […] Read more…

Best protein bars roundup!

I thought this would be fun to put together my list of favorite protein bars and the benefits of each. A real meal, made of real whole foods is always ideal but when we need a snack on the go, or can’t plan ahead very well, these are better than nothing- or choosing something crappy […] Read more…

sweet pork nachos

Who doesn’t love nachos?! This was a delicious and easy alternative to our typical comfort food! Regular nachos= carbs on carbs on fat on fake cheese. Not filling, and 0% percent nutritious. My version is obviously a lot more fiber, and less cheese- but filling and so tasty! It’s a combination of a few different ideas I’ve seen, […] Read more…

Asian fried rice casserole

I give you the easiest recipe- one that I made up as I went, so I have no real measurements, sorry!  I made a big batch last night of half brown rice/half jasmine rice in the rice cooker. So that was ready to go. Usually I have chicken prepped in bulk, but I didn’t at […] Read more…
