Taking the "Junk" Out of Junk Food

I believe that setting a good example for my kids is one of my most important jobs as a parent. This includes all aspects of living healthy, including a good diet.  Food habits are started young, something I have no doubt noticed when sitting around the dinner table with our little ones.  Many tactics have Continue Reading «Taking the “Junk” Out of Junk Food»

Fitness and Nutrition: An Ever-Changing Dynamic

Lately, I have been answering a lot of questions from people about how many times per day they should be eating.  I usually start answering them by asking them the same questions.  Most people respond with the same answer:  5-6 smaller meals per day.  Anyone that has been involved in fitness over the past several Continue Reading «Fitness and Nutrition: An Ever-Changing Dynamic»

Homemade Energy Protein Bars

Food Concepts: The Right Choices

Tomato Bacon Basil Man Food (a.k.a. Qu_che)

It’s no secret that protein is a necessary ingredient for building muscle mass. It especially important this time of year as you are laying down a base level of fitness in preparation for the spring and summer racing season.

So The Assault is Almost Over...

You’re almost through the most hectic and diet-wrecking period of the entire year. Congratulations: The assault is almost over. 1)  You’ve made it through Thanksgiving (that’s like an assault with the occasional weird concoctions such as green jello with suspended cabbage).  Where you may feel guilted into filling your plate with small portions of food Continue Reading «So The Assault is Almost Over…»
