A HEALTHY IMMUNE SYSTEM is our best defense
Move more and sit less!
Nobel Peace Prize Winning Discovery
By Dr. Barry Sears
Sitting too much hurts the immune system.
Moving opens the body’s internal pharmacy, our own “natural” medicine bottle.
Blood flows over the top of our internal medicine bottle and floods the immune system with lots of healing medicine.
Through movement is increased blood flow, and every organ in the body is flooded with “internal medicine” and immune fighting cells.

Movement creates an energy field… this is the winning Nobel Prize Discovery!
The better your blood flow, the better your immune system.
So, go outside and play! Move, exercise! Wave hello from afar to fellow immune building neighbors.
Create lots of good healing medicine in your body.
Just move!
Loved the video. I need to get a ball!
Just saying 🙂

Happy Fall! 🍁
It’s pumpkin season and time to try a
healthier version of PUMPKIN BREAD

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Ingredients:
2 cups almond flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
4 eggs, lightly whisked
¼ c. coconut sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup 100% pumpkin puree
½ tsp. of pumpkin spice or cinnamon can also be added to taste
Optional: ½ cup each of chocolate chips & walnuts

In one bowl mix together dry ingredients and set aside. In a second bowl, mix wet ingredients until smooth, and pour into dry ingredient bowl. Stir until well combined and not clumpy.
Line a 9x5 glass dish with parchment paper and pour batter into loaf dish. Check at 40 minutes by inserting toothpick in center of bread. If toothpick comes out clean, it’s done. Otherwise, bake for another 5 minutes at a time and keep checking.
If a little extra sweetness is calling you, opt for the cream cheese glaze made with:
3 oz. regular cream cheese
1 or slightly more to taste Tbsp coconut sugar, honey or maple syrup
2-3 Tbsp almond or regular milk, or heavy cream for added richness.

Wisk (best with electric beaters) together room temperature or slight softened in microwave, the cream cheese, coconut sugar and milk. Drizzle over cooled bread. Allow to sit 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

Being fit means consistent exercise and this makes your post workout meal a key piece to the fit equation. After an accomplished, tough training session, it’s important to consume high quality carbohydrates to properly recover and fuel your next exercise session.
Focus on carbohydrate-rich foods such as oatmeal, sweet potatoes, brown rice, whole grain pasta, beans and bananas. These healthy carbs are necessary to replace glycogen, build muscle and fuel future workouts. Carb-rich choices will ensure sustained energy post training and give you the necessary fuel for future workouts.

Today’s helpful nutritional post!

Getting Serious about Post-workout Nutrition

If true health in the form of fitness, building muscle and improving endurance is your goal, you must get serious about what you eat after your training session. While you may have crushed those ball slams, pushed your limits on the bench press, and squatted your way to a peak heart rate, if you do not choose the right foods post workout, it is possible to negate all your sweat-driven effort and hard work.

For successful, permanent weight loss, do this…

For successful weight loss, it’s not only about calories and food choices. For permanent change, it’s important to identify when and WHY weight and unhealthy habits first became an issue.

Did it start during a stressful situation or relationship, a new job or working from home? Perhaps you developed unhealthy eating habits as a child.  Why and when did you stop being active? Also, consider health and hormone related changes. When and why did your health stop being a priority? 

If you really dig and discover WHEN and WHY you started gaining weight, it will be easier to make long lasting changes and adapt a new way of thinking when it comes to your weight, overall health, and wellbeing.

Here’s a great one for your short work week!☕️🍵

When the days’ events leave you feeling stressed, try a cup of Green Tea in place of your morning coffee.  Too much caffeine can cause a short-term spike in blood pressure and leave you with feelings of anxiousness, not to mention an unhappy gut.  While coffee has its benefits, Green Tea has half the caffeine of most coffee, and many studies reveal it provides the same amount of alertness and those “awake” feelings we crave from our daily morning coffee ritual. Even more beneficial, this green elixir contains antioxidants and Theanine, which has a calming effect on the nervous system, while at the same time giving you a nice energy boost both physically and mentally.

Summer isn’t over yet..☀️
STAY HYDRATED!

Recently, I’ve been witness to clients coming into the studio under hydrated, so if you are one who forgets to drink enough water, this is for you.
It can be easy allowing hours to pass without proper hydration in favor of a few cups of coffee at your home office desk. However, staying hydrated is essential for not only physical energy, but optimum mental performance as well.  
If a glass or two of water has not been consumed by late morning and you find yourself reaching for food, hold up! You might be thirsty, and the lack of hydration might be misconstrued as hunger.
One way to help with staying hydrated is to purchase a fun, colorful reusable water bottle.  Another trick is to set your phone alarm, reminding you it’s water break time. Keeping properly hydrated will ensure you power through your MHF workout session, so drink up!

LATE NIGHT EATING

While a late-night pizza pie and brownie filled dessert might bring comfort after a long, hectic day, its reward is short lived, and often regrettable. Its impact can prove to have both physical and emotional consequences.
You’ve probably heard that eating after a certain evening hour is not good for you, while others believe it has nothing to do with the time, but rather what you are eating. According to the latest studies, it’s a little of both. Time and food quality both affect whether midnight noshing creates negative health issues.
Eating more calories than your body can use over time leads to weight gain, regardless of the timing, period! But many studies demonstrate that individuals who habitually eat late at night tend to have a higher MBI due to choosing lower quality convenience foods. Research is uncovering that eating after 10 p.m. may have a negative impact on blood sugar and overall body fat percentage. These negative results can be avoided, even if you eat late, by choosing healthier options containing protein, healthy fat, fiber, or all three. Chose nutrient dense foods such as string cheese, pistachios or walnuts, Greek yogurt, whole grain toast with almond butter or even popcorn. Avoid simple carbohydrates such as cookies, sugary cereals and chips, and rich foods such as left-over lasagna, meatloaf, or pizza, which can be difficult to digest and interrupt a good night’s sleep.
Make your health a priority by adding a reminder to your daily calendar when it’s time for lunch or a nutritious afternoon snack. And if fat loss is your ultimate goal, not to mention a restful night’s sleep, remember to eat enough AND often enough throughout the day to maintain stable blood sugar and avoid late night hunger binges altogether.
