    Here’s a quick recipe to spruce up your morning pr-oats, or protein oatmeal, routine! One thing I’d like to highlight is why I do not recommend cooking oatmeal WITH protein powder.  Simply put – protein dries it out and slightly changes the flavor and texture of the oatmeal. As an alternative, I recommend cooking the

    Recently I crossed another fitness challenge off my bucket list by competing in the Red Bull 400! It’s touted as the world’s highest 400-meter race that happens at several locations around the world, but in the US, it’s only held in Olympic Park in Park City, Utah.

I’m learning all about new flavor combinations in order to mimic some animal based meals and food, while also finding new ways to make meals nutrient dense. I was never a fan

    Post-Workout Plantains With Maple Syrup

    Without a doubt, this is my favorite post-workout treat because the carbs help replenish the glycogen stores from training and tearing down the muscles, but in a MUCH more delicious way. The maple syrup is sugar-free, but if you can handle it and prefer it, you can use real maple syrup or honey, careful not to
