Picking Protein, What You Need To Know!

Plant Vs Whey
Plant based proteins usually have the same grams of protein as whey, however, in order to get that content companies use things like: pea, sprouted brown rice, hemp, and chia. This type of protein is perfect for vegans or anyone with lactose intolerance, or dairy allergy.
Whey protein is a milk protein and is a dairy product. It’s a protein-packed punch and contains amines – specifically Leucine, which assists in protein synthesis and muscle formation.

Fighting Against Negative Self Talk

My feeling after experiencing the classic “Running High” 

Nothing keeps me more motivated than that feeling of ACCOMPLISHMENT 🙂 

However, getting to that feeling of accomplishment doesn’t always come easy, in fact, sometimes it’s a huge struggle, one I wanted to share with you, to hopefully inspire you in a positive way. 

If you’re like me, than sometimes before you start some form of physical exercise, you without trying, start thinking of negatives surrounding, how it’s going to go, feel, or how much it will hurt, etc. You may not mean to think that way and you might not realize how much it’s impacting you or even where it stems from. However, I’m here to tell you, if you can get quiet and listen for those negative thoughts and start reversing that mindset, your physical work will become so much easier and more rewarding and that will transfer into a positive mindset all around. 

I’m someone who loves the feeling after a good workout, it’s what keeps me coming back. There is nothing quite like it, my body needs to feel that surge of endorphins {helps to block pain and is associated with the feeling of euphoria} to help me get things done in the day and to feel more joyful on a daily basis. If you haven’t found something you enjoy doing, DON’T STOP LOOKING! Get out there and try different types of exercise, there are so many options you are bound to find a few you like.

Produce Bath & Spray Recipe

Scrub a dub dub, put your veggies in the tub!

Vegetable and fruit bathes are a must, here’s why…

  1. Contamination risk, from preparation to storage time, there are opportunities for contaminants, especially bacteria, to live on your vegetables.
  2. Anyones hands can be on the loose produce you pick up, people test and touch, creating a breading ground for bacteria and germs.
  3. Produce can often be spilled on the floor of grocery stores, during unpacking or shipping, if produce isn’t ruined it will be put on the shelf, definitely without a wash. Ensure you wash items even in the plastic containers like berries, they could’ve easily been on the floor.
  4. Helps remove dirt, pesticides, and waxes. The more we get off, the less we put in our body.
