As of yesterday, the state of California has issued a mandate, and now people are now being mandated to do what they’ve always done – stay at home and avoid society. Of course there’s always that minority who will miss the gyms and the face-to-face conversations (OK maybe most of us). If this describes you, then you’re probably wondering “can I still stay healthy during quarantine?” and, “is it humanly possible to binge-watch the entire Office TV show for the fifth time before quarantine is over?” To the latter, I’m not sure, but for those worrying about their health, I’d like to comfort you by explaining that it isn’t quite as hard as you think.
We’re finally warming up here, at least in Southern California, so now’s the time to pull out your frozen treats and cool drinks! Most of the time, though, your frozen treats may be things like Otterpops, which are little else than a mixture of corn-syrup and food coloring, or like Kool-Aid, which has ingredients that are impossible to pronounce, and also has food coloring. Sometimes your healthiest option is to make your own, and in this post, I have a recipe for Protein Popsicles! It’s exactly what it sounds like – popsicles with protein powder in them.
Summer break is upon us! It’s time to start evaluating the way we’re eating, and start making healthy and sustainable choices. This is more important than it may sound; the food we put into our bodies affects our health directly; our stress levels, our mental health, our energy, and our whole physical well-being.
It’s time to fuel your body properly for all your summer activities!
Often it is very time consuming to prepare entire healthy meals three times a day from scratch, while also making sure you’re getting all of the numerous nutrients your body needs to function at its peak.
I recently found a solution to this via a nutrition program that offers complete meal shakes, specifically balanced with all the nutrients your body needs in each one. Each complete meal shake ends up being under $3.
I take two of these each day, leaving myself with one regular food meal per day to prepare for myself, as well as healthy snacks in between. What I like about this program is that its not a diet; it’s simply a program that showers your body daily with pure nutrition, which naturally aids in the building of lean muscle, and weight loss.
If you could spend under $3 for each of your meals, with no prep and no shopping, while also losing 10-20 pounds in your very first month, would you do it?

Merry belated Christmas! Christmas baking is done for this year, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves – New Year’s is just a few days away, and more cooking must be done. An amazingly cheap and fast dinner that the whole family can enjoy is Gnocchi, in all of it’s related recipes.
This particular Garlic Mushroom Gnocchi is extremely time-and-cost efficient, healthy, and full of flavor. Gnocchi takes only 3 minutes to boil, and don’t cook it too long otherwise it will get chewy and harder to consume.
Beer Bread is one of the quickest bread recipes out there, with a distinct flavor and an awesome moist texture.
Beer has rising agent in it already, but most store-bought beer will not have enough of it to make the bread rise; for this, most beer bread recipes include baking powder, which reacts with the beer to lets the bread rise and develop air pockets. Because of this process, Beer Bread is certainly a ‘quick bread’ – the recipe consists of mixing the dry ingredients together, then mixing in the melted butter & beer, then baking right away. There are no rising times or kneading.
These rolls are quick and easy to throw together, and turn out amazingly! They rise quickly, are soft and fluffy, taste great with a bit of butter (and maybe some jam) and make an awesome side to any meal.
