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
5 scallions, whites and greens separated and thinly sliced
1 tbs sriracha ( or to taste )
1 bell peppers, assorted colors, cut into thin strips
6 oz mushrooms, thinly sliced
1/2 cup of broccoli per person
2 7-oz bags shirataki noodles (I …


Going gluten free is a choice that I am making. 

 I notice for myself that when I take the gluten out of my diet I feel much better. I was missing my noodles and pasta!!! But I didn’t miss how I felt after eating it. 
Now I have so many more options and these are the newest ones. So yummy! Next week I will add a photo and recipe of the salad I will be making.

I feel better now.

A few years ago, I was in world class condition having completed 2 Ironman events within a 6-month time frame. Prior to that, I was a distance runner and had maintained a strong level of fitness for nearly two decades. Fast forward to 2015 and the stresses of work began to cause my focus, motivation and attitude toward fitness to stray. While my nutrition was never poor, the focus that I know to be…

Shaun T is Back

Shaun T is back with an exciting new home workout exclusively on Beachbody On DemandSHAUN WEEK: Insane Focus, starting June 12th. It’s not Shark Week, but Shaun Week – a seven-day, high-intensity workout that includes the best moves from Shaun T’s fat-busting programs FOCUS T25 and Insanity, as well as new moves from this super trainer.

It’s a week for people to break plateaus and to find out for themselves that they can do this, they can commit to something. It’s hard to commit to 30 or 60 days, but everyone can commit to seven days and that small success builds motivation to do something bigger.
By doing the Shaun Week workout June 12th to 18th — along with hundreds of other Shaun T fans across the country — you’ll be sure to get swept up in the excitement and it might kick start the next phase of your fitness journey.

Ghee or not to Ghee….

What the heck is Ghee anyways? 
Ghee, or commonly referred to as clarified butter, is a dietary source of fat traditionally used in Indian cooking you can find it in specialty stores like whole foods and some grocery stores. 
How is Ghee Made?
Ghee is made by heating butter slowly until all the water cooks off and the proteins coagulate in the bottom of the pan. The ghee is poured off and strained, solidifying once it has cooled. Ghee is cooked longer than traditional clarified butter which gives it a nutty taste.

Why use Ghee?
Ghee has a higher smoke point than normal butter, olive oil and coconut oil, making it an excellent choice for sautéing foods, It doesn’t taste as good to eat a lone but it has an amazing nutty taste and when add it to your veggies or other foods.
Ghee will last a long time outside of the refrigerator and when stored in air tight container it can last up to 3 months and when kept in a refrigerator, without opening, ghee can last up to a year.
Ghee stimulates the se…
