My Supplements

My Supplements

Because I eat a diet of all real food, I feel fairly confident I get decent, but not perfect, levels of vitamins.  I eat a good balance of foods, however, we can all benefit from the addition of vitamins and supplements to fill in the dietary gaps. Some key…

Get Real | Be Honest With Yourself

Get Real | Be Honest With Yourself

  When it comes time to make a change, do you ever feel like you are simply spinning your wheels?  I want to address a question I’m frequently asked .   “I’m working out, eating right and I’m not losing any weight.  I’m frustrated, what can I be doing differently?”  …

Gluten Free Chicken Tenders

Gluten Free Chicken Tenders

If you’re like me and have kids that tend to be picky eaters, you know how challenging it can be to get them to eat healthy and nutritious meals when all they want is “kid food”.  I feel like I am on a never-ending hamster wheel of chicken nuggets and pizza.  Though…

Behind the Image

It would be easy to believe I am always upbeat and positive, live a stress-free life and have perfect children.  In reality, what rings true for you is no different in my world.  I have children that occasionally talk back or battle me on dinner, tons of stressful…

Tiffany Gaston | The Paleo Figure Competitor

Or am I?  I’d like to address this since I’ve seen some comments online that refer to me in this way.  While I am most definitely a big believer in the many benefits of living a Paleo lifestyle, I’ve tried my hand at getting ready for a figure show while maintaining…

The Aftermath | NPC Pittsburgh Championships

The Aftermath | NPC Pittsburgh Championships

It’s been awhile since I could focus any amount of time on my writing, my other passion.  I have been consumed with this past weekend’s show, to which I have much pride in my accomplishment.  It’s always such a surreal moment when you have worked your tail off towards…

Showtime!

Showtime!

I’m on my way to showcase my hard work over the past several weeks.  I am anxious to see how it has payed off as I am confident this is my best package yet.  I am taking the stage about 8 pounds heavier than 6 months ago.  I was initially very leery to add weight, but…

Paleo Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Paleo Slow Cooker Pot Roast

  I’m in my final week prep this week and thought I’d go back to some oldie’s for ya.  Here’s an easy weeknight or any night dinner that couldn’t be simpler to prepare.  I’ll see you back next week with the results of my latest show, The NPC Pittsburgh.  Go Team…

Under Construction

Not much rocks me at this moment.  Despite the whole world going on around me, the good, the bad and the indifferent, I have a laser focus like no other.  I didn’t sign up for this to wing it.  I am strong, I am dedicated, I am devoted and I WANT this. I hope I will…

Paleo Pan Seared Spicy Mahi Mahi

Paleo Pan Seared Spicy Mahi Mahi

This was a last minute meal, thrown together with some Mahi I happened to have on hand in the freezer. My daughter stayed home from school today and I had plenty of time to cook. She woke up with hives all over the side of her face. Special… I gave her some Benadryl…

Cardio Queens

Cardio Queens

  Howdy!  I’m 14 days out and I am really starting to feel the pressure of it’s impending arrival.  I feel I was a bit leaner at this point last time, but I’ve been trying to appreciate the fullness for what it is and hold on to it a little longer.  Just trying…

Max “The Body” Philisaire

Hey ladies…thought I’d send a little Monday morning motivation your way!  Guys, I’m sure this can serve to motivate you as well.  A nice lean set of abs is a sign of someone’s commitment to eating right and training hard.  This man lives and breathes health and…

NPC Pittsburgh | 3 Weeks Out

NPC Pittsburgh | 3 Weeks Out

I’m just a girl, alone in the dark, chasing my dreams on a 7% incline. No one is awake, no one here to push me. I make myself do this madness. Just me and my own internal drive to be better. Better than yesterday, better than all my tomorrows.  I will go after my…

Out of Darkness Comes Light

Out of Darkness Comes Light

You see a fit body and you think the person must have great genetics or has always been this way.  Maybe they even spend countless hours in the gym.  To understand how far this man has come, you must first understand his journey.  The fact is, fellow NPC competitor…

NPC Pittsburgh | 4 Weeks Out

NPC Pittsburgh | 4 Weeks Out

Temptation?  You don’t mean these pretty cupcakes?  Well, I guess if you’re into that sort of thing.  I admit, it was a bit like being lost in Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory over the weekend with all the treats around me.  A bit of a living nightmare indeed.  Easter…

Paleo Butter Chicken

Paleo Butter Chicken

Shocking I know…another Indian recipe.  I’m on a roll, what can I say. I love Indian food and it’s fragrant smell wafting through my home.  Kind of makes me  feel like the real deal over here. So here’s the deal, the real deal: 2 lbs organic boneless skinless…

Paleo Baby Back Ribs

Paleo Baby Back Ribs

Being that I’m not much of a BBQ sauce girl, I thought we’d grill up these ribs with a Memphis Style rub instead.   I didn’t want sugar, but instead opted for honey which I drizzled on them prior to the rub.  This way the spices stuck to it and it formed a nice crust…

Countdown to the NPC Pittsburgh | 5 weeks

Countdown to the NPC Pittsburgh | 5 weeks

  I am officially 5 weeks out today!   I know, that may seem like a ways off yet, but I am beginning to get excited about my next show.  I started a new meal plan this week and I really feel myself tightening up as a result.  I’ve gained…
