New Year. Better You.

New Year. Better You.

  The key to reaching your optimal potential both mentally and physically: NUTRITION It’s that time of year. The holidays are over and you’re starting the New Year off right. Right? Challenge yourself this year to take control of your health – both mentally and physically. There is no greater reward you could give yourself, or those around you, then taking care of your own health. After all, if you feel good, you exude greatness! We have come up with five ways to start the New Year on the path to achieving your 2015 health goals. 1.) Drink plenty of water. This is number one for a reason. Water is one of the most underrated components of health. As dietitians, it has been eye opening to see just how many people live in a state of dehydration.

Recipe: Almond Butter Quinoa Blondies!

Almond Butter Quinoa Blondies Make 2015 the year of mindfulness. This includes mindful indulgences too! Switch up your recipes a bit and try something new and tasty. This Almond Butter Quinoa Blondie is made with quinoa flour, which you can find in the baking section or near the gluten-free flours in most natural grocers.  If you’re feeling extra ambitious, make your own quinoa flour by using a clean coffee grinder to grind whole grains of quinoa into a powder. These blondies have less than 150 calories per serving, and higher protein content than your average dessert. Replace the dark chocolate chips with dried fruit (I suggest dried apples or cranberries), and you will have a great breakfast side option.  Embrace the theme of mindfulness by slowing down and enjoying every bite. Makes: 24 blondies Prep: 10 minutes Total Time: 1 hour Ingredients 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened 3/4 cup smooth or crunchy natural almond butter 2 large eggs 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 3/4...

Post No-Sugar Challenge Wrap-up, Hints, and Recipes

As the no sugar challenge comes to an end, I am sure most of you are feeling much more confident in your ability to steer clear of that processed white stuff you used to crave all the time.

Or will I decide to just eat sugar every now and then as a treat? This challenge was not designed to tell you to never again eat added sugars. It was designed to show you that it is possible for you to live without it. Sure, it takes a little extra work and planning on your part, but hopefully this challenge has shown you how much better you feel without sugar. What we hope you take from this challenge is two things. Number one, sugar is served best in moderation.  Number two, we hope you learned that sugar is hidden by...
