What you need to know about heart health

Heart health is something many of us don’t think about until we’re “old”, if we ever think of it at all! Truth is, 1 in every 4 deaths in the US is related to heart disease and is the leading case of death in men AND women… that is super scary! Clearly this means we NEED to be thinking about heart health.

Foods You Should Always Have in Your Pantry

I get these kinds of questions a lot… what’s your go-to ___ (fill in the blank)… People always want to know what the “magic” food is that they need to eat every day or walls have on hand. While I can’ tell you a magic food or the ONE food you should always eat, I can tell you some foods that I think you should keep around for quick and healthy meals or snacks!

Things to Know, Before you Get in the Zone

Because your heart is a muscle, it gets stronger with exercise.

From yoga to HIIT classes, heart rate based training offers many benefits, and is the most effective way to reach fitness goals.

What you need to know about foam rolling

Foam rolling is crucial to preventing injuries and unnecessary soreness after a workout. It works through the fascia and scar tissue that gets built up from wear and tear on the muscles (which happens when you work out) and leaves smooth, pliable muscles that can be worked again without the risk of injury from too much scar tissue.

Why muscle is harder to build with age…

You’ve heard it before, and you know it’s true: Getting old is no cakewalk! We’re trying to keep our heart and our organs healthy, thinking about protecting our skin, making sure we’re eating clean and then, oh yeah, what’s up with this new “soft” body I didn’t have back in my 30s and 40s?! Yes, it’s true: unfortunately, muscle is harder to build and maintain as we age.

Healthy Holiday Swaps

Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a 2 1/2-quart casserole dish or ramekins and set aside.

Peel and roughly chop sweet potatoes into large chunks. Place into a large pot and cover with water. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat to medium-high, and gently boil for 10 to 20 minutes, until the potatoes are fork tender and drain, and place into a large bowl.
