  • Accepting Your Body

    I feel a strong need to put this out into the universe, as it’s something I am constantly working on. I think the only reason anyone ISN’T working on this is because they haven’t thought of it yet. We live in this social media world full of before/afters that just seem unobtainable and un-maintainable. All the photo filters and perfect…

  • High Protein Taco Pasta

    Happy Monday  😀 I’ve never had “Hamburger Helper” before, but I am pretty sure this recipe is a much more refined homemade version of the dish. I love pasta and I love mexican flavors, so I decided to give this one a go, and it did not disappoint. This dish is actually VERY versatile! You can use whatever protein you want:…

  • Quick Weekday Breakfast

    Hope you all had a lovely Halloween! Come on out of your candy coma once you’re ready and let’s get back to seeking optimal health and badassery. This is our go-to weekday breakfast. We prep this on Sundays during our meal prep time and then it’s ready to grab and go every morning throughout the week. SO freaking convenient! You…

  • Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks

    I liked my latest instagram story so much that I decided to write a whole post about it!  For a while now I’ve been looking to Alex Moe from @themacrobarista for ideas about what to get at starbucks when I wanna #treatyoself. Let’s face it, when you’re on a cut or in a calorie deficit (which you really should NOT do more…

  • Testosterone

    This one is for the dudes. Have you ever had your testosterone levels checked? Since the 1980’s men’s average testosterone levels have dropped by 1% every year. Average levels in the 40’s were 1400-1500 and now a recent sample of 5000 Americans shows an average of 387. With lower and lower testosterone levels, men are feeling weaker. They have less…

  • Ground Beef

    Hey! Are you new to meal prep?! One really great place to start is to just prep your protein and nothing else since increasing protein intake is THE most common issue when people are starting to dial in their macros. This super simple ground beef is one of the easiest places to start. It works great for meal prep, or…

  • Green Chicken

    I can’t believe this is our first chicken recipe! Chicken is usually such a go-to for people who are looking to increase their lean protein intake. While chicken thighs aren’t exactly super lean, they are a delicious semi-lean protein that we have been loving for meal-prep purposes for years. We buy the boneless, skinless version to really maximize the protein. We…

  • Why Be Gluten Free?

      What’s the deal with gluten? Gluten is a protein found in grains like wheat, barley, and rye. It gives wheat breads their chewy elastic texture. Humans are not designed to digest grains—they are not intended for the human gut. If you think about this, it makes a lot of sense. We can’t run out into a field of grains…

  • Cauliflower Mash

    Did you miss us?! We were busy doing a crossfit competition this weekend, so now that it’s over we are taking a little time off to heal our bruises and give our sore muscle some time to recoup. We usually make this cauliflower mash recipe for weeknights, but it actually saves and reheats really well, so it would be a…
