Trying to Build Muscle & Lose Fat? These 7 Foods Will Help!

There are plenty of reasons to eat better & work out - improving your health, losing weight, and gaining muscle to name a few. Most people have multiple reasons and luckily these tend to go together quite well. But losing weight AND gaining muscle can be a bit more complicated.

You’re already familiar with the various ways of losing weight - specifically creating a calorie deficit - but if you want to gain muscle as well, that can’t be all you do. In fact, gaining lean muscle requires energy and specific nutrients which means you should focus not only on how many calories you’re consuming but also which nutrient-rich foods you eat (as well as exercising regularly!). Without all of these things, you’ll reach a plateau and be unable to go further.

How often has this happened to you? You make a plan to change something in your life, with the best intentions, only to see it fall through. Unfortunately, good intentions don’t necessarily equal action.

Eating well these days can seem like a complicated matter. Between running the kids to school/activities, working, and living the rest of your life things get hectic which probably leaves you feeling exhausted.

Eradicating the Epidemic of Childhood Obesity

Childhood obesity has been called an epidemic and for good reason. In the past three decades, in the United States alone, childhood obesity rates have tripled. Nearly 1 in 5 school age children and young people (6 to 19 years) in the United States is now obese or overweight. That’s a huge increase! And it’s a huge risk to our children’s health and well-being.

Make Breakfast #1

Spring is in the air so you might be starting to get health-conscious in anticipation of summer and bathing suit season.

You’ve heard it said a million times but breakfast really is the most important meal of the day and there’s plenty of reason why.

Top Mind/Body Trends of 2019

These days we realize that being healthy is a mind + body experience, not an endeavor solely focused on food and exercise. While eating healthy and taking care of ourselves physically is essential, we also need to manage stress, sleep well, use tech responsibly in our lives, be mindful of what’s in products we use on our bodies (such as makeup, etc)., and so on. It can all seem a bit overwhelming at times, so we’re here to help you out with a look at some of the top mind & body trends of 2019.

Happy [Insert Food Holiday Here]!

We like holidays. Who doesn’t? But there are HOLIDAYS, and then there are holidays like “Wave All Your Fingers At Your Neighbor Day” (yeah, we’re not sure about that one either). The ones we really like though are the food holidays (of course!) and there are some great food-related holidays happening this month. Listen up, because you’ll definitely want to participate.

Souping vs. Juicing

Are you a fan of cleanses? If so, you're likely familiar with juicing - extracting juice from fruits & veggies using a juicer. Juice cleanses are often used to detox the body and kick-start bodily systems into optimal function, but there are some negatives. That's one of the reasons juicing is seemingly being replaced by souping. What is souping? It's essentially the same thing as juicing except you use soup instead. It helps detox your body, reduce inflammation, and increase circulation. Plus, there are various ways to do it. It's quickly becoming one of the most popular cleanses around. So, is it right for you? And how does it compare to juicing?
