Plank Jack Crossovers: In plank position, Jack your legs out to the side. Bring legs back to starting point, then bring your knee to opposite elbow. Repeat on the other side. That’s 1 rep
Plank Shoulder Taps: In plank position, alternate tapping your shoulder with the opposite hand.
Total Body Crunch: Crunch your knees towards your chest, as if curling into a ball. Do not pull on your neck.
As you know, clean eating and fitness go hand in hand, and sometimes our meals can become a bit stale, or, boring if you will. Because of this, it’s important to add variety to your plate for both nutritional benefits, and as a way to keep yourself from eating the same thing over and over again.
To help you out, I’ve created a list of my favorite Super foods from A-Z. There are plenty more to choose from, as well as cooking styles, so make sure to try a new item each week to add vibrancy and variety to both your life and palate.
Which will you try today!?
Click on the name to read the benefits of each item.
- Dandelion Root
- Flax (whole or ground)
- Iced Tea (Unsweetened).preferably passion tea from Starbucks )
- Navy Beans
- Ugli Fruit
- Xylocarp (a hard, wooden shelled fruit. Such as a coconut)
What are some of your favorite Super foods?

SO..How was your Easter weekend?
Did you have to do a lot of Burpees?
I’ll be honest…I’m gonna be Burpeeing all week from eating lots of this..
desserts, wine, and lots of sweet and salty snacks in between.
However, every bite was worth every burpee, and I’m back to my usual eating habits of nutrient packed breakfast smoothies, lean proteins, fruits, veggies, and the devil himself…the Stairmaster.
- 2 handfuls of spinach
- 1 scoop vanilla sunwarrior protein
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1 Tbsp ground flax
- 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla coconut almond milk
- 1 frozen banana
- 3/4 cup pasteurized liquid egg whites
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1 tbsp. ground flax
- 1 cup water
Oh the Stairmaster. You kick my butt every time.
I am the type of person who enjoys food on the holiday itself, and then it’s back to regular eating.
Knowing that there is leftover pies, cookies, and salty side dishes sitting in my fridge is not something that I recommend, especially if you are the type of person who tends to mindlessly pick at them throughout the day, which is most likely all of us.
If this is the case, GET RID OF IT!
Yes you may be wasting food, but that is no excuse to eat dessert for 5 days straight because you feel guilty that someone brought it.
The holiday is over…move on.
This is called tough love.
You’ll thank me later.
It’s another busy week over here!
