Guilt-Free Easter, Tips to help you stay on track,



Guilt-Free Easter, Tips to help you stay on track,
I use to love to indulge on Easter you know some wine, glazed ham or a yummy prim rib and of course those packed fill sugary cadbury creme eggs! Oh ya I would be in a food coma for hours and not to mention the sugar headache that lasted into the next day. These days I have backed off on the foods that no long fit my lifestyle. I do allow myself to have a treat but going over boar isn't an option any longer. Use the tips I posted below to help keep you on track so that you don't go completely off track but you can still enjoy the day.

Easter is a day of celebration and indulgence in wine, red meats, and sugary sweets. While it's easy to go overboard in the Easter feast, it's all about balance. Yes, you are allowed your Cadbury Creme Eggs, but use these tips to keep you from completely falling off your diet plan.

Let's start with the basic and get your water in. I like a little natural flavor in my water so I add a thin cucumber and lemon slice in. This also help with liver-detoxing and digestion.

Let[s face it, there is going to be lot's of stuff like cheese, cracker and Easter candy. Don't allow yourself to sabotage your hard work because come Monday you will wish you had stayed on track. Fill up with veggies or salads the fiber will help fill you and you can stay on track. Just say NO!


Have a juice or smoothies. This is another way to get your fiber in and will help you stick to the plan. Just because everyone is piling their plates at brunch doesn't mean you have too.

You still feel like you need that bread or candy. Have it as your treat after you have eating and filled up on the healthy stuff. Sure we all want to indulge on bread & butter ( my kryptonite ) oh and one or two bites of chocolate caramels, peeps and jellybean seem like they won't hurt you in one sitting think again. Pick one and enjoy.

Why you should add Warm Water, Apple Cider Vinegar and lemon to your morning routine.

Lemon Juice:

Another acid and works very similar to ACV. You can drink either one or mix both together. I mix them both together. Lemons contain Vitamin C… not a spectacularly high amount, but 30-50 mg per lemon. They also contain potassium.


Drinking lemon water first thing in the morning gives the body a chance to absorb these vitamins effectively and can provide a little immune boost.

Vitamin C is also good for the adrenals a…

MIRACLE NOODLES - GLUTEN FREE

This is one of my favorite gluten free meals. And it so easy and quick to make.
Have you heard of “Miracle Noodles?”
These translucent, gelatinous Japanese noodles, which are made from the konjacyam, are low in calories and carbohydrates


These are my go to pasta with out the extra carbs and gluten. Shirataki noodles come pre-packaged in liquid, portioned out in a plastic bag that gets refrigerated. ( but you can find them in your local market kept near the dry pasta.) The noodles are watery and emanate a faint, fishy odor (though they’re 100 percent vegan), which comes from the plant they are made from. Shirataki noodle manufacturers recommend rinsing, draining and drying
Ingredients 1/2 tbs oil
2 tbs fresh garlic, minced
2 tbs fresh ginger, minced

Why you might be holding on to belly fat.

Yikes! Getting older sucks, no more eating what you want, your body changes how quickly you gain weight and how slowly you lose it.  What is up? Sounds depressing not really, keep reading.  







As we age both men and women experience a declining metabolic rate, what is that? (Metabolic rate is the rate at which our body burns calories) and to add to that, women have to deal with menopause. Yippee! No not really.  Gaining weight after menopause, mean you’re more likely to gain it in your belly.  What happens is the production of the hormones estrogen and progesterone slows down.  While, testosterone levels also start to drop, but at a slower rate. Causing a shift in hormones and that is what cause the weight to stick around. 
Now it’s not the end of the world so don’t go grab the bag of chips and ice cream just yet.  When I worked in the gym I would see so many women hitting the spin, and cardio class 6 days a week with very little or no results. One of the things I teach my clients is …
