Stop being afraid of aging! We women tend to mourn our birthdays before celebrating them, because we’re so wrapped up in the changes that come with getting older. Once you realize you can look and feel your fittest at any age, you’ll have nothing to fear. In fact, you might become fearless. Read more →
In your twenties, you’re battling the balance of a social life and the start of your career. Physically speaking, your body can handle the stress of late nights, non-stop work and lack of sleep…but only if you take good care of it. Starting a few healthy habits during these youthful years will pay off in the long-run.
Over the past year or so, my fiancé and I have been slowly reducing our consumption of meat. We participate in Meatless Mondays (remember my walnut tacos?) and rarely eat meat at any meal other than dinner, but we wanted to take things a step further. So two weeks ago, we decided to go meatless for an entire week. As we found out, eating vegetarian was tastier than we expected.
Here’s an omnivore’s take on the vegetarian diet:
You’re an athlete. You train hard and train often. Some days, you even work out twice. How could you possibly be gaining weight — and not the kind you want? When you’re not gaining muscle mass, something has to give…and that’s you. You have to give yourself the tools, the time and, yes, even a few treats to stay focused and on track.
Ever told your kids to “do as you say, not as you do”? You were probably joking at the time, because we all know how well kids listen to their parents…not! The next time you’re desperately pleading to get your kids to change their behavior, act like an animal. Seriously. Monkey see, monkey do.
Q: Which is better for athletes: animal protein or plant protein?

A: There are two sides to every coin. Neither is right nor wrong. What is always right, however, is listening to your body.
About 70 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered in it and about 80 percent of our bodies are made of it. Water is at the root of life, which would explain why you should be consuming a sufficient amount. Not only does proper hydration account for a well-functioning body, but it can also make your skin appear soft and supple, your lips smooth and kissable and your muscles hard and defined. But buyer beware: when it comes to hydrating a fit body (like yours), you should be mindful of more than just how much water you’re drinking.
