Top 10 Ways to Stay Accountable to your Fitness!

All too often we set a fitness goal, and 2 weeks in "fall off the wagon."  Don't worry, it happens to the best of us as life seems to get in the way and other "things" take priority.  However, YOU should be your first priority!  Your health and happiness determines the success of all parts of your life...

Mexican Quinoa

Quinoa is on of the most popular “superfoods” these days.  It is loaded with protein, fiber and minerals, but doesn’t contain any gluten.  Pronounced KEEN-wah, 1 cup cooked boasts 8 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber and is loaded with antioxidants, making it one of the best if not THE best grain for someone to reach for! Below is my FAVORITE quinoa recipe that is SUPER easy to throw together and is so versatile!  Throw it on top of a bed of lettuce and add some shrimp or chicken for a perfect meal...

What’s Your Foot Type?

When it comes to selecting the correct running shoe, or any fitness shoe for that matter, you must figure out what type of foot you have. The best way to achieve this is by going to your local speciality running shoe store and having them perform a professional gait analysis.  It is free, takes no time at all, and best of all takes the guessing out as far as which shoe to buy and why.  But, if you are like a lot of runners, you might not have access to a speciality running store and will have to take accountability for your own foot health.

What’s the Skinny on Stevia?

In today's world of sugar substitutes there is one in particular that is getting a lot of attention.  Stevia, which is extracted from the plant Stevia Rebaudiana was first found in Paraguay for use to sweeten teas.  Fast forward more than 1,500 years later and it is still used today for its original purpose as well as an additive for coca-cola and food products in more than 30 different countries. Most people that use stevia do for the purpose of a sugar substitute, which begs the question of how is stevia different than regular sugar? Interestingly, stevia is almost 300x sweeter than sugar but has no calories or artificial ingredients. We all know that an abundance of too much sugar can lead to many negative side...
