You’re going to think it’s funny, but my 2-year old daughter loves to decorate “Easter Eggs”… and although it’s been quite a while since last Easter (after all, NEXT Easter is only a couple months away), we still break out the eggs from time to time for a little Easter Egg decorating like we did just the other day.
Truthfully, it doesn’t require a lot of extra work, as Daddy always has hard-boiled eggs in the fridge. Why? Because they’re a great, incredibly convenient high protein snack chock-full of healthy fats and more vitamins that you can count. That’s why!
Congratulations to Linda Rosenberg, the winner of our Protein Shake Recipe Contest! She thought outside of the box—and into a bowl!
Instead of conventionally drinking protein shakes in a cup, she arranged hers in a pottery bowl. As a matter of fact, the trend in the health and fitness community seems to be to have high-protein smoothies in a bowl with some added “toppers,” like extra fruit, seeds, nuts, or even my chunks of 85% cocoa chocolate!
It makes smoothie-making a little more interesting. It’s an idea that’s caught somewhere between overnight oats (minus the oats) and a protein smoothie. Combined, it is a smoothie bowl—totally fun to make and visually appealing to say the least! After making this, she devoured it, of course! It tasted like breakfast and dessert combined except for Linda… it was actually dinner! Hahaha! (more…)
This recipe actually comes from BioTrust Fitness Advisor Dr. Charlie Livingston, and it packs loads of healthy fats, fiber, and quality protein. Oh, and did we mention it’s delicious? (more…)
Do you like pasta? Me too!
OMG we have so much in common!!
Alright, so you probably know that most pasta dishes are bad news for your waistline, packed with carbs and loads of fatty fat fat, right?
In fact, carbs + fat = the ULTIMATE fat-gaining recipe, making it rather obvious why a large plate of pasta is the ultimate fat loss nightmare.
That said, you can still enjoy a nice pasta dinner while slimming your waist at the SAME time…just apply my two flat belly pasta tricks! (more…)
If you’re like us, you love eating a LOT of food. One of the best ways to OVEREAT while on a diet is by enjoying huge, delicious salads regularly.
Here’s our 7-Step, Fool-Proof Method for building the ultimate fat-burning salad each and every time:
1. Get a huge bowl (no… bigger)
2. Fill it with salad greens (spinach, romaine, spring mix, etc.)
3. Add other veggies (carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, celery, eggplant, onions, peppers, etc.)
Let’s face it. We all get cravings, and we all give in to them.
BUT, when you understand how to choose the right foods, you can still satisfy your every craving without screwing up your diet or being overwhelmed with feelings of guilt.
For example, let’s say you get a craving for something salty and crunchy… it’s a pretty common craving. Unfortunately, it often leaves us reaching for terrible processed foods like potato chips and pretzels—foods that certainly aren’t going to have a positive effect on your fat loss goals or your health.
But, what if you had a go-to salty and crunchy food that you could turn to in these instances that was actually healthy for you and your waistline? Well you do… (more…)
I know, I know… nobody wants a dry sandwich. But how exactly do you avoid adding over 100 calories and 10g of denatured fat to your sprouted grain bread without a little mayo?

Yesterday was a Low Carb Day, although I allowed myself to have a smidge more carbs than I normally would at dinner just so I could try a new recipe, which I’ll share with you in a minute, and boy am I glad I did! (more…)
In almost every case, you should steer clear of store-bought, packaged salad dressings. Simply put, the salad dressings that you find on the grocery store shelves are almost always filled with these fat-storing, health-damaging ingredients:
1. Denatured and trans fats. Most store-bought salad dressings are made with cheap, denatured and highly processed fats. If you see vegetable oil, canola oil, or soybean oil on the ingredient list, steer clear! These damaged fats can and will wreak havoc on your health and your waistline. (more…)
