Paleo Protein Brownies

I have been following a muscle building training program for the last month or so, and apart from heavy lifting, a big part of what will determine my success is my diet. What we eat and the timing of when we eat is huge for these type of things; our muscles need constant fuel to grow and recover, and they are

Cacao Protein Shake

2016 is here and it has arrived along with a plethora of resolutions. Everyone seems to have one, and it seems to me like most of these resolutions are either health or fitness oriented. I am not sure when the “New Year’s Resolution” tradition started, but I am sure glad it did; it is a

Paleo Granola Bars

Aren’t snacks on-the-go ideal? I love having a quick nutritious treat ready to go for when I find myself in a hurry. It is so great to have something already prepared that won’t spill, wont smell, wont be weird to pull out while in meetings, and that will just hit the spot perfectly. I highly

Root Roast

Who doesn’t like to switch their vegetables up? I know I do! It gets pretty old to eat the same thing…like just eating carrots, or just eating cherry tomatoes, or just eating kale. You’ve got to give your body a bit of everything, you know? Different ingredients provide different minerals and vitamins, so it’s always

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Those of you who follow me on Facebook know I am following a 3-month training program. This trainer is not your usual moderate program; this one is hard-core. I am lifting like a man, doing cardio twice a day, eating super clean foods and taking a few supplements every day (multi-vitamin, fish oil, l-carnitine, yohimbe,

Paleo Breakfast

Paleo Breakfast. Yum! In my opinion, there is nothing better than breakfast foods. I love the weekends because my honey and I get to go on breakfast/brunch dates and order all sorts of yummy goodies (usually Paleo approved…but sometimes I do splurge a little and get myself a menu item that is not so Paleo…shh). It’s

How-To: Meal Timing and Healthy Habits

On Friday I talked about how often I eat and how I am sticking solely to the Paleo diet, but I really didn’t give you guys much detail on how I go about it. This past weekend, I got a text from Bonnie (my wonderful sister-in-law, who, by the way, is an excellent baker and

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

Mariel’s Guide to San Francisco

San Francisco, such a unique city. It’s vibrant, colorful, energetic, full of smart and driven people, with amazing restaurants and stores, a nice mix of historic and new architecture, right by the water, and pretty predictable when it comes to weather (mostly foggy and rainy, with a slight chance of a sunshine surprise). It’s a

Mariel’s Mykonos Guide

Mykonos was our third and last stop in Greece. We got to it by ferry, which was a two hour ride from Santorini via SeaJets. Taking a ferry was the only transportation option from Santorini, as there aren’t any direct flights from Santorini to Mykonos. However, the ferry was short and comfortable. A word of
