  • Sleep, Fat Loss, and the Importance of Creating a Bedtime Routine

    Sleep, Fat Loss, and the Importance of Creating a Bedtime Routine

    Whether you aim to improve performance in the gym, recover faster, lose weight, or increase mental health, sleep could be the missing piece in helping you improve your health. Most of us stick to a bedtime routine religiously throughout our childhood. But, as we move into adulthood, that same routine either adjusts or is completely thrown out the window as we enter the demanding world of school, full-time work, raising families (or pets, or plants, you do you!), and other responsibilities. Sleep is vital in weight management, mood, energy, decision-making, and happiness. Yet more often than not, it's one of the first things we sacrifice to get through our to-do list. Today, we're ....

  • Set Goals You Can Actually Hit in 2023!

    Set Goals You Can Actually Hit in 2023!

    It’s that time of year again: New Year’s Resolutions time. After the challenges the last few years have brought, the new year for many comes with sighs of relief and hope: hope that this year will be different, hope that this year will FINALLY be the year that things begin to change. While the prospect of the New Year is full of hope, the statistics of resulotions are not as much: only 8% of Americans that create New Year’s resolutions keep them all year, and 80% of those that make resolutions fail by February. So how do you beat the odds? Change the way you set your goals. One of the biggest reasons resolutions fail is because they are not specific ....

  • Thanksgiving Recipe: Pumpkin Pie Bites

    Thanksgiving Recipe: Pumpkin Pie Bites

    These might be the most adorable pumpkin pies we’ve ever seen, and at only 16-20 calories and 3 grams of carbs (!) per bite, you can eat an entire plate full of them without burning through your macros. In order to keep the calories low, we swap traditional pie crust for wonton wrappers. Additionally, we use a combination of maple syrup and monk fruit sweetener to lower overall carbs. If you’re not into monk fruit, simply swap it out with an equal weight of white sugar or coconut sugar (just don’t forget that that will add calories!) Calories: 16-20, Protein: 1 g, Carbs: 3 g, Fat 0 g Ingredients: 48 Wonton Wrappers 1 15.5 Oz Can Of Pumpkin Puree (Not ....
