I like to make my own fajitas seasoning and have it on hand especially as many seasoning purchased at the grocery store contain sugar and other unhealthy additives. Here is the recipe I use when making my own seasoning: https://downshiftology.com/recipes/fajita-seasoning/

Fajitas salad bowl. You can cook chicken breasts ahead of time and either use a salad mix or romaine leaves to complete this dinner idea. https://www.spendwithpennies.com/chicken-fajita-salad/

This recipe is vegan but I always make it with 1 lb of grass fed ground beef. I also use whatever is in the fridge. This is what makes it a great weeknight meal especially if you can wash and chopped ahead of time. https://www.loveandlemons.com/stuffed-acorn-squash/

I found this really interesting article highlighting what motivation is through the lens of psychology. Many people believe that motivation is something that just comes in phases and occurs passively. Take a look at this article and understand what motivation really is - https://www.psychologytoday.com/ca/basics/motivation

I always love tasting foods from all over the world. While COVID-19 has hindered my ability to do so, I found a really amazing cookbook last year to learn how to prepare and also taste so many international recipes. I am so thrilled not only to be able to taste new foods, but to also be able to prepare the food and understand combinations of flavors and spices to make some of the most delicious recipes. Here is the link to the cookbook I absolutely love - https://www.amazon.ca/Best-International-Recipe-Classic/dp/1933615176

There has been so much hype around the use of muscle guns to enhance athletes recovery. I personally use a muscle gun following a workout to combat muscle soreness. While they can be useful, it is important to be aware of how to properly use the gun to avoid injure and even danger.

The HIIT workout you will find below, is one of the most energy boosting sweat session I have ever taken part in. The beauty of HIIT is that you can perform this style of exercise in the comfort of your own home with limitted equipment. The workout video below is a follow-along video involving different styles of training which include the following: bodyweight movements, plyometrics (explosive movements), functional training and conditioning to name a few. Condensed in a 30 minute training session, the goal is to push passed your limits and discover new exercises. High intensity interval training (HIIT) is great for burning fat, improving endurance, and gaining lean muscle mass. Lastly, I would like to mention that this video is suited for beginners, intermediate and advanced athletes as the video includes alternative exercises if you feel uncomfortable or you are unfamiliar with a particular movement. 30-minute HIIT follow-along video below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdYi2KLQPEo

Eating a balanced meal can be interpreted in many ways. To me, a balanced meal is where my plate consists of all 3 macronutrients. One of them being carbohydrates, then fats and lastly, protein. As other athletes will agree, consistently hitting all 3 macros in one meal is necessary for optimal performance in the gym. There is nothing worse than going to the gym with low-energy as a result of poor nutrition. Dr. Fuhrman's Eat to Live cookbook is one that should be added to any recipe book collection. Dr. Fuhrman's cookbook involves a breakdown of the nutrients each meal consists of. This is a great way to keep track of your macros during the day, and another way of knowing whether you are reaching your target fat, carb and protein intake on a daily basis.

There is nothing better than starting off your day with a refreshing beverage. During my work weeks, a typical morning looks like getting ready for work and rushing out the door to make it to work for 8:00am. This nutrient-filled smoothie includes kale, apple, cucumber, lemon juice, ginger, coconut oil, maple syrup, and protein powder (optional). I usually like to mix up my breakfasts, but I will incorporate this smoothie into my breakfast at least 3 times a week. In doing so, I have seen major improvements in terms of acne and overall skin health. In addition to this, I feel a boost of energy before work, which is much needed to the start of a busy day.

In Supplements
Most individuals consume one or more dietary supplements each day. In fact, Americans collectively spend $31 billion each year on over-the-counter medications (including dietary supplements). With this significant statistic, research has been conducted to test whether supplements are as beneficial to and individuals health as they are made out to be. John Hopkins research team suggested that there isn’t any harms linked to taking dietary supplements, however, low-sodium diets, omega-3 supplements and folic acid supplements were shown to have the greatest health benefits.

Arnold Schwarzenegger was a legend in the fitness industry and changed bodybuilding for what it is today. The inspirational video linked below applies to both men and women. Arnold speaks on how some of his biggest failures have turned into some of his greatest successes. Women often times are told that they can’t do something and that they are inferior to men. This video holds some great messages and lessons that all women should have the opportunity to hear. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MoEoKP5ZETA

Hey everyone, I wanted to hop on here to share with you a very interesting article I came across recently. New research was recently released by the University of Eastern Finland to suggest that choline (an essential nutrient) may reduce our risk of dementia. According to World Health Organization and ScienceDaily, over 50 million individuals worldwide suffer from this disorder. See the link below to learn more about how dietary choline can lower your chance of dementia. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/08/190806101530.htm
