Paleo Mango Salsa Sriracha Turkey Burger Salad

Paleo Mango Salsa Sriracha Turkey Burger Salad

That’s a mouthful!  I made this lunch time salad with leftovers from last night dinner of turkey burgers which were eaten with roasted asparagus.  The turkey burgers actually have mango salsa in them, but you can season the burgers how you prefer and then prepare the…

The Importantance of Hydration

The Importantance of Hydration

Do you drink enough water? Do you train hard, eat right, take supplements and then don’t consume enough water? You may be doing more harm than you think. Coming from someone who once had kidney stones, you DO NOT want them. I’ve had 3 children and the pain I…

How to be Supermom (or just look like one)

1. Prioritize  Yes, we all have busy lives. Do you have that one friend that seems to get it all done and never look back? Maybe it just seems like it. She is likely prioritizing her day and quite organized. That’s not to say that unless you’re a type A personality…

Cheat much?

Cheat much?

If you’re Kristen Stewart, I know the answer already. She is being called the vamp tramp. Clever isn’t’ it? It’s Friday! It’s usually pizza night, right? For me it is. Eating clean and training hard go hand in hand. After all, if you do one without the other, you will…

Bullying Stops Here

Bullying Stops Here

I wanted to open up a line of communication about this subject. My reasons are personal, but if I can help others in doing so, than the message has been sent. I plan to share a very personal story, but I’d really like some input from you. It’s quite a hot button topic…

Are you motivated for yourself first and foremost?

Are you motivated for yourself first and foremost?

Let’s face it, most of us want to look good and feel good. Not everyone is willing to do what it takes though. Not everyone is educated on how to eat or what supplements to take. There is boundless information available on every kind of lifestyle to follow. It can get…

Paleo Tomato Basil Mahi Mahi with Spinach

Paleo Tomato Basil Mahi Mahi with Spinach

I’m reading about eating for your brain recently and I decided to make this recipe with that in mind. Omega 3’s are super brain food and helping with memory and brain function. In addition to that (if that’s not enough for you) they help reduce inflammation and many…

Top organic foods to buy

Top organic foods to buy

AKA, the dirty dozen. These are the fruits and vegetables you should purchase organically when possible. They are listed in order from the highest levels of pesticide to the lowest. I realize organic usually means more expensive, but not always. Regardless, you should…

Paleo Pot Roast

Paleo Pot Roast

The last roast I made was very disappointing. I think I had purchased a different cut of meat than normal. I’ve kind of spoiled myself with Tri-tip (which is certainly not necessary, but awesome) over the years and if I sway from it, I’m typically not happy. This was…

Cooking healthy for a family

After a long history of following every style of eating, I’ve now discovered one that works for me. A Paleo lifestyle. Simply said, I eat a grain-free, dairy-free diet including tons of veggies, protein and occasional fruits, nuts and seeds. I’ve continued down a path…

Why a 15 minute workout is all you need…

Why a 15 minute workout is all you need…

It’s Sunday morning, I grab my sandbag and a jump rope and head outside for my workout. I decide on walking lunges to attack my legs today. Caution, this workout is lower body heavy today but also great cardio. Here’s the breakdown: Repeat this circuit for 5-7 times…

I burpeed Mt Rushmore!

I burpeed Mt Rushmore!

Well, what else would I do?  It seemed like a good idea at the time.  Not sure anyone looked at me funny or that I even cared.  Maybe just my kids did.  I’m fine with embarrassing them.  After all, I try to do it as often as time allows. Live healthy, burpee often,…

Paleo Curried Beef and Broccoli Slaw Fritatas

Paleo Curried Beef and Broccoli Slaw Fritatas

My inspiration came from none other than Nom Nom Paleo’s blog. This recipe was whipped up easily and I see tons of potential with regard to ingredient options and leftovers. In my head that sounds like “LEFTOVEEEEERS” like when Oprah announces, “you get an elephant…

Yay, Burpees!

As promised, I completed 54 consecutive burpees.  Ended up in 3 separate videos due to numerous complications. All in all, I did it in just under 6:30. Why you may ask?  Back in May I decided to challenge myself by begging for “likes” to my JTG Nutrition Facebook…
