  • Weightloss Recipe: Healthy and Easy Fried Fish with Sweet Potato Fries

    One of the biggest things we hear from our clients is they want variety in their meal plan. We don't blame them! Chicken for every meal can definitely get boring and the whole point of creating a sustainable healthy lifestyle is actually being able to ENJOY your food. A challenge that many folks face when trying to shake it up with their protein choices is picking flavorful protein without a ton of fat. Protein is a critical part of overall health (things like building muscle and keeping bones strong) as well as achieving weight-loss goals. That's why we wanted to bring you an awesome fried fish recipe that's low in fat to curb those cravings! This recipe is great for summer when you're ....

    Now, you're probably asking yourself: what are they talking about? Aren't they a gym? And our answer to that would be no! There is a distinct difference between a gym and a private studio, and while most fitness facilities are projected to open June 1st (ourselves included 🙌🙌🙌🙌), you should definitely proceed with caution when it comes to returning to big gyms. When it comes to big gyms they're biggest concern is one thing: getting memberships. You know it's bad when they have to start advertising that they are now cleaning thoroughly. Shouldn't they have already been doing that? 🤔🤔🤔 The reality is that big gyms are kind of gross. They have a hard time regulating cleaning the ....

  • Surviving COVID-19 Recipe: Salsa Verde Chilaquiles

    Surviving COVID-19 Recipe: Salsa Verde Chilaquiles

    Chilaquiles are traditionally served for breakfast in Mexico and consist of crispy tortillas swimming in salsa and sprinkled with cheese. How can you go wrong, right? In order to ensure that the tortilla chips don't become a soggy mess, it's better to bake your own rather than use store-bought tortilla chips, which tend to break down more quickly. For the best results, look for thick, homestyle tortillas that are either 100% corn or a corn and flour blend. Serving size= 243 g, Serves 2 Calories: 403, Protein: 21 g, Carbs: 55 g, Fat: 9 g Ingredients

    200 g tortillas (5 rounds)
    340 g (1 container) salsa verde or roasted tomatillo salsa (found in the refrigerated foods section)

    COVID-19 Support: How to structure your pandemic day to decrease stress and stay on track

    If you're anything like our clients, this quarantine is probably making you a little stir crazy. One of the things we've done is getting creative on our off time to keep ourselves engaged. A great way to do this is through board games! And one thing we've noticed as that quite a few games have checkpoints, certain things you need to accomplish in order to move forward in the game. Checkpoints make a seemingly insurmountable situation a little less terrifying. If you focus on reaching the next checkpoint (rather than beating the whole game or level) the situation is more manageable. In life, it works the same way: accumulate checkpoints and you'll achieve great things. Right n ow, many ....

    COVID-19 Support: Can you buy willpower?

    You’re probably experiencing something right now that’s pretty frustrating: a lack of willpower. A lack of willpower can show up in a variety of ways, anything from being unable to stop watching netflix, to being unable to resist binge eating your favorite junk food. So why has your willpower decreased? Stress is one of the biggest impacts on willpower, and let’s face it: COVID-19 is bringing on a whole new level of stress. For many of our clients who have transitioned to work from home, stress shows up in adjusting to the new work process, a shake up in routine, but also being home with their family a lot more than they are used to. Willpower is ....
