What to Eat Before a Run

What to Eat Before a Run

What to eat before a run has become my latest obsession. Everyone seems to have a different opinion! What I’ve discovered is that there are some helpful tips that can guide your own final decision, but that when it all comes down to it, trial-and-error will end up being the last step.

Being in Nature Improves Nutrition and Overall Health

Being in Nature Improves Nutrition and Overall Health

I just read about a study that showed that being in nature improves nutrition. I mean, I’m super not shocked that you are healthier if you head outside in daylight and fresh air. I know that being around plants is also great because there have been lots of studies into that forest bathing practice that is so awesome in Japan. Still, the fact that it affects food in some way definitely caught my attention. Could going for a nature hike break my obsession with cupcakes? …no tree is that powerful!

5 Best Exercise Motivation Tips When You Absolutely Hate Your Workout

5 Best Exercise Motivation Tips When You Absolutely Hate Your Workout

Last week, Holly posted a few things on Facebook and Twitter about some of the best exercise motivation tips she’s seen online. Unlike me, Holly really struggles to do her workouts. I used to, but I’m really getting into it, which I’m happy about. I think the difference isn’t that I’m someone who loves exercising and that she’s someone who hates it. I think I’ve just found the right way to do it for me. I’ve found what drives me. Suddenly, it all switched on.

How to Do a 5am Run When You’re not a Morning Person

How to Do a 5am Run When You’re not a Morning Person

I am not a morning person, but I’ve still found that a 5am run is the time that works best for me. If you’d asked me a few years ago – heck, six months ago – if I’d be out there before the sun comes up and jogging down the sidewalk on my own, I’d have looked at you like you’d lost your mind. Never at any time in my life had I ever pictured myself as someone who would wake up that early, have a quick bite and sip of water and then start running. Now, I do it a few times a week! Even more surprising, I kind of love it!

Plant-Based Protein as the Focus of Your Meal

Plant-Based Protein as the Focus of Your Meal

This week, I’m investigating plant-based protein and how to make it a focus of the meal. The reason? I discovered that when I eat meat, that tends to be my meal’s focus. When I have beans or tofu or something like that, it’s usually buried into the other ingredients as though I need to hide its shame.
