This article talks about a lot of great things you can do to ensure you eat well and exercise during the work week. Personally, I find it a challenge to stay on top of exercising and eating well during the week. Lately, I have tried to meal prep on Friday or Saturday nights which has been super helpful. It ensures I eat nutritious food and it is easy to quickly grab something when I'm on-the-go. I'd love to hear if anyone else has any other tips and tricks that has worked for them.

One of the cookbooks I love is Angela Liddon's Oh She Glows. This cookbook is filled with amazing vegan recipes that are both tasty and healthy. They are easy to make and you can freeze the dishes, which is great when you are on-the-go. This is a really good option when you don't want to eat a meal that includes meat, poultry or fish. If you don't want to buy the book right away, you can go on her website to view some recipes: https://ohsheglows.com

The vitamin C I like to use is the Ester C 1000mg + Bioflavonoids vitamin C. Vitamin C is one of the most vital vitamins to protects various cells within the body and improve overall health. According to WedMD, vitamin c can also act as a shield against heart disease, prenatal health complications, skin wrinkling and eye disease. This vitamin can be found in various fruits (mainly citrus fruit), but also in vegetables and other foods. One of its major roles is to produce a protein known as collagen which is imperative for healing cuts and other injuries. Vitamin C supports immune health to fight off viruses and other temporary illnesses and thus being the reason why it is advised to consume vitamin c dietary supplements during flu and cold seasons.

The protein powder I use after working out is the GNC Pro Performance Whey ISO Burst All Natural protein powder. Protein is necessary to stimulate muscle growth leading to improved strength and optimal performance in the gym. Whey protein is beneficial in the sense that multiple organs, neurotransmitters, hormones and enzymes need the protein macronutrient to conform to its high performing standards at all times. However, it is important to take into account the downside of utilizing this supplement if not used appropriately or as instructed. Whey protein escalates the release of anabolic hormones to encourage muscle growth, such as insulin, as suggested by Health Line. When blood sugar spikes insulin is secreted to regulate the blood sugar and therefore may result into weight gain rather than muscle development and fat loss. Whey protein is most beneficial for individuals who require a post-workout supplement or after performing intense physical activity for a prolonged duration. Relative to many types of protein, whey is most effective considering the acidic properties of the stomach providing a rapid release of amino acids to be dispersed throughout the body compared to casein, a slow digestive protein.
