Have you ever made chia seed pudding before? It's one of my favorite things to make. And for many reasons. The first of which...it's delicious! It also has soooo many health benefits. It's packed with omega-3's, protein, antioxidants and fiber (a lot of it)! I work with a lot of nutrition clients who struggle to get enough greens and fiber in their diet, so when PurePharma announced their new product, G3, I couldn't wait to add it to some chia seeds pudding. This recipes packs a healthy punch!! With the addition of G3, which is a greens powder made from spinach, kale and parsley, you're loading up on vitamins and minerals from some of the most nutrient dense leafy greens.
I get asked a lot of questions like "how do I eat eat healthy when I'm traveling?" Or "how do I stay on track with my diet when I'm on the road and choices are limited?" And I completely understand these challenges. But I've also learned over the years how to travel and make it work. If being heathy is a priority of yours (and I'm sure it is or you probably wouldn't be reading this) then I hope this list comes in handy. Whether you travel for work or pleasure and whether you're on a road trip or flying somewhere far away, having a plan is key. Convenient food is not always the best option, but when you're taken away from your kitchen and your routine, what are you expected to do?
One of my favorite things to do when I travel is to explore markets and restaurants to try new foods. Okay okay you got me, I just like to eat. A lot. But lucky for me, Peru did not disappoint. Here's what 10 days of eating and drinking my way through Peru looked like.
Two questions I get asked a lot are "What should I eat before and after I workout?" and "What supplements should I take." And these are both great questions, because the food we eat and the supplements we take have a huge impact on how we perform in the gym and how we recover from our workouts.
