Coconut Almond Chicken Patties

Coconut. What a delicious little gift from nature. I LOVE coconut. I think it’s because I grew up with fresh coconut. In Ecuador, we could find fresh coconut at any small market, grocery store and fruit stand. Its funny, sometimes coconut seemed to find us. While vacationing at the beach, you could see natives pushing

Egg White Scramble

Following a twelve-week trainer program and having to stick to a strict diet can be very challenging. Eating six to seven times a day is…well…difficult. Not because one has to eat a lot of food (I love to eat…the more the better) or because cooking may seem like a chore (I love cooking, it relaxes

Spicy Bison Burgers

Bison. First time trying it ever. I was a bit intimidated by the name, not gonna lie. We never had bison at our dinner table in Ecuador. I probably never even knew people ate this animal now a days! I was completely familiar with chicken, eggs, pork, beef, and fish…not bison. A couple of months

Pumpkin (Protein) Cakes

I just ordered an all Egg White Protein Powder from bodybuilding.com. I’ve ordered a bunch of stuff from their site before (including various types of protein), just never an all Egg White protein powder. It felt like Christmas, yet again, when I received their lovely Bodybuilding.com white box in the mail! I really haven’t heard

Sweet Potato Waffles

Diet. One of the most important aspects of fitness. So important in fact, that even though you might run, spin, lift, and train like a maniac you wont get the results you desire unless your diet is locked in. I speak from personal experience. I used to cycle like crazy; five to six times a

I just started the Live Fit Trainer. This is the fourth trainer I do in a row! In a row! No down time…diet, after diet…gym day after gym day. That’s tough. I must be one strong and determined woman. I mean, OF COURSE I’ve had cheat meals, times where I’ve cried when weight lifting gets painful

Almond and Coconut Waffles

I have a couple of “small pleasure” items that make my life more enjoyable. These are things that I could live without – if I had to – but I choose to include them on a daily basis because they make life way sweeter! They bring comfort, smiles, joy, and like holidays, I can look

So many exciting things happening….yes, it is a Monday and Mondays are usually dreadful to me, but there’s something special about today that makes this Monday not so shabby. For one, I am switching up workout routines! I’ll be starting today a less hard core trainer,

Salmon Parsley Patties

Living in Boise Idaho I am limited to getting my hands on good fresh fish. Yes, we do get fresh river fish, but it sort of isn’t the same. I usually just end up guying frozen fish or canned fish (tuna and salmon). Don’t get me wrong, I like having these options too (sometimes you

Bacon Wrapped Eggs

Eggs just go well with mornings. Don’t you think? It is everyone’s preferred source of morning protein. Well almost everyone…there are some strange people out there that don’t like eggs…funny, right?! If you’re one of these people…don’t take it personal. Maybe you’ll start liking eggs once you try this recipe. Eating eggs every morning or

My mom loves granola, so naturally, I love granola. I like a lot of things my mom likes. I want to be like her when I grow up. When I was little I remember loving all her perfumes, all the foods she ate, all the accessories she wore, and all the places she went. I’m

Cilantro Beef Burgers

Lately I’ve been really fond of protein. I think it’s because I highly appreciate all the healthy fats different meats have offered me on the last couple of weeks. When you’re working out ever day (high intensity workouts), working on marketing projects, and cleaning and cooking a bunch, you get energy drained. Carbohydrates are our

Patacones

There is nothing like our senses to bring back crystal clear memories. And for some reason, smell, sound, and taste seem to do the trick quite effectively!  These three seem to trigger some sort of chemical (or so I think) reaction in our brains that brings back perfectly clear memories in a matter of seconds…just

Our family has a very planned out monthly budget. My husband and I have thought of all the expenses we could possibly have in a month, gave them a dollar value, and added them to our Mint.com account to keep us accountable and in check. It’s good to budget. It saves you from going shopping crazy
