It is officially Fall and while we’re still experiencing warmer temps down in South Florida at our fitness retreat, the humidity has dropped and we’re able to enjoy lighter air and crisper mornings. With fall comes the inclusion of fall flavors everywhere. Whether it’s pumpkin spice, cinnamon, apple, date or fig, fall flavors are being seen in coffees, protein shakes, dessert and snacks. So to go along with the season and all of the delicious flavors, we decided to create an awesome Apple Pie Trail Mix. It’s packed full of healthy goodness. It is gluten free and just the perfect amount of salty and sweet.Read More

Most of the recipes I found didn’t have protein added to them so I decided to boost mine with protein. Chia seed protein pudding packs a healthy punch. It’s loaded with healthy nutrients which makes it a great option for either breakfast or a healthy dessert.Read More

Everyone wants superfoods these days. Our guests that come to our fitness retreat love to talk about superfoods and how they can get more of them. It’s a great conversation because there is some confusion out there. There are like a zillion shake diets out there (I will not name any of them) who claim to be selling “superfoods”. I’m here to tell you that superfoods don’t come in the form of a processed meal replacement shake. They just don’t.
Superfoods are -> Whole, unprocessed, colorful foods.Read More
