Which would you choose?
Ever wonder why sweet potatoes are deemed "healthier" than regular potatoes? 🤔Find out why they both deserve a place in our daily nutrition 🙂
🔸GLYCEMIC INDEX & LOAD: When comparing the GI & GL of the two, white potatoes are higher, which means they digest quickly and can send insulin levels skyrocketing. 🚀 -
(GI is a measure of how quickly a food converts to glucose.
GL is a measure of how much a food converts to glucose.) -
This is one of the main reasons why we are told to avoid food high in GI such as white potatoes. However GI & GL shouldn't be the deciding factor when judging the “healthiness” of the two, because:
1️⃣GI changes with food type (floury vs. waxy potatoes).
2️⃣GI changes when other foods are introduced. (We usually eat both potatoes & sweet potatoes as part of meals.)
3️⃣GI changes with food preparation.
🔸SUGAR: Naturally, sweet potatoes have 7 x the sugar content of regular potatoes.
🔸VITAMINS & MINERALS: In general, both are roughly similar in their vitamin and mineral content. Sweet potatoes are richer in Vitamin A & Beta-carotene, aiding growth and repair of the body’s tissues, muscles. 🏋🏼 While potatoes contain more than 3x the folate and have more potassium, which is important for postworkout recovery! 💪🏻
🔺In conclusion, it's a TIE! Overall, they're pretty evenly matched: both contain strikingly similar amounts of calories, protein, carbs and fat. Both white and sweet potatoes, when eaten as part of a balanced and intentional diet, provide an amazing variety of nutrients while keeping us full and energized. 🔋
I personally like sweet potatoes because it often satisfies my sugar cravings, especially when they're baked with peanut butter/almond butter on top 🤤

Regular Oats ➡️ Egg White Oats! 🥚🤓 Add easy volume & extra protein to your oats with this #foodhack oatmeal edition!
This is something I do every single day to my oatmeal! I'm a volume girl and this hack adds some serious volume to those oats 👌🏻 plus a super fluffy texture and about 12g extra protein! Here's how ya do it:
1️⃣: microwave ~26-40g oats (or ~1/3 or ~1/2 cup any oatmeal sub like Cream of Wheat or Quinoa Flakes) + a bit more water than recommended for about 1 minute
2️⃣: add 2-3 egg whites directly to oats and stir, stir, stir until oats & egg whites are combined (~15 seconds)
3️⃣: put combo in microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring between rounds. Repeat 3-5 times until mixture starts to rise in bowl
There you have it! Volume protein oatmeal 😻 after, I always add Maca Powder, Cinnamon, Pink Sea Salt (trust me on this 🎉), stevia, and nut butter! Credit- @therunningpowerlifter .

Pre workout breakfast looking good 🤗😋 had this yesterday then had the best run since surgery so let's hope it works its magic again 😉 speaking of running, here are my thoughts bc I know y'all missed #KonvosWithKristin (s/o to you Danielle)
Yesterday I ran 4.5 miles and it felt so so good 🙌🏼🏃🏻‍♀️ I was running off a lot of stress and anxiety and I've found running is my favorite way to re-center myself. Pre run I was anxious, overwhelmed, and not feeling great. Post run I was calmer, had more energy, and overall a more positive outlook. I also think eating before running improves performance, I usually work out on an empty stomach but when I know I want to run I'll eat and do it later 😊 moral of the story, exercise is therapy, it doesn't need to be yoga that helps relieve stress, but if it is, that's great! Find what works for YOU. .
I also want to stress that working out gets put on the back burner for some people when they're stressed, but I think it's so important to make time for it because it will help you clear your head and feel much better. .

Dinner date with my favorite ladies 😍

Too soon? 😉

A weekend with just me and the pup calls for meal planning, cleaning, girl-bossing it up, and autumn-izing my house! 🍁(and of course, catching up on GOT! I'm one of the few who didn't watch the leaked episode I guess!) 😜#introvertsunite

Confession: I don't like sushi. BUT, I loooove me a poke bowl from @beech.charleston 🙌🏻
Had so much fun with some friends Wednesday night taking a yoga class @reverbcharleston followed by this bowl 🙌🏻. Have you been over to @workshopchs to check out all the fun things?

The guy said it would change my life it's so good. Lol
Salmon Pasta in spaghetti, freshly made on the spot, all the way down to pasta noodles from scratch. 😋

Friday night dinner! I tried a new recipe tonight and made chicken shawarma.
The recipe for the chicken shawarma is as follows: 👉🏻Ingredients:
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp ground tumeric
1 tsp kosher salt
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
⅛ tsp cayenne
2 TB extra virgin olive oil
1 lemon juiced
3 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs (don't use breasts)
Combine all spices + olive oil and marinate chicken overnight or for at least 4 hours in fridge. Place chicken on baking sheet and bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes. Slice chicken and enjoy!
You can make a salad with it like I did or eat in a pita.
My salad = chicken shawarma + cherry tomatoes + cucumbers + red onion + tahini + quinoa + mint + parsley + romaine lettuce. Eat the rainbow!

These are the biggest mistakes I've made and things I commonly see as well. So I figured I'd explain each of them and how correcting them can help.
🥗Not enough real food- If it didn't come from the frozen section, it was a no-go for me. Many people know this about me. And it held me back for a long time. Not only was I not getting the nutrients I needed but processed foods were also effecting my decision making ability. Processed foods are full of empty calories and sugar. This leads to food cravings and over-consumption almost 100% of the time. And when you go over your calorie limit consistently... ya gain weight! If you want to make hitting your goals extremely hard on yourself, then go ahead, eat all the processed foods you want. OR you can eat more real foods like vegetables and things you cook. This will energize you, make you feel great and put you in the right space to hit your goals.
💦Not enough water- evvvveryone tells me they struggle with this. I struggled with it too. It was one of the first things I improved with my health and it made all the difference. Being hydrated, in my opinion, should be your main focus because it will be a huge help in you reaching ANY of your other health/ fitness goals.
💪Not enough protein- so many people ask why they aren't building muscle and then I see what they eat in a day... bagel for breakfast, turkey sandwich for lunch and then a burger for dinner. I'll admit, getting the proper amount of protein you need does take a bit of effort. But it will change everything for you. Not only does it aid in building muscle but it will help those looking to lose weight too. Protein will keep you satisfied, so you stay away from all those extra calories. Focus on getting .7-1 gram per pound of body weight.
🍕No fun- so, you've covered allll the other options but you're struggling because it's becoming stressful to keep up with and you just want some freakin pizza! Go for it. IF YOU DO NOT ENJOY IT, YOU WILL NEVER STICK TO IT.-
I hope this helps and any questions, drop them below!

"For though we stubbornly cling, believing in our moment of hunger that there is no other possibility of love, we only have to let go of what we want so badly and our life will unfold.

Awwww Tay I just stumbled across this photo of us from New Orleans and I love it 💜💜 Such a life-changing trip - i can't wait to bring our teams with us to Indianapolis next year, and watch them experience it firsthand!!!! #bossbabes #womensupportingwomen #lifteachotherup

To all the girls about to start college... I want you to know something. To all the women starting a new phase in life, I want you to know something. For all of you girls who are going back to high school, I have something I want you to know.
There will be ups. And they will be glorious and full of memories and laughter. You will feel filled to the brim. You will feel a sense of control. Like you are in the drivers seat of your life.

But we all know what the opposite of up is. According to Newtons law, what goes up must come down.
You are going to get hit. Hit hard. You will stumble, some of y'all will fall. I HIT rock bottom, and I hit it hard. And every time that get back up and get back in the drivers seat, every time that I think i don't need any help driving, I am humbled and I fall. It's hard, it hurts, but you can and will get through those low moments.

But in the midst of both the highs and the lows it's up to you to know your worth. It's up to you to decide where your happiness and joy comes from. Find it from within. Look so deep inside of yourself that you are so so sure of WHO you are and WHAT made you you. Those highs and lows? Those will make you and break you. But a masterpiece is made up of messes. My favorite canvas that I painted had three coats of paint, 3 re-dos, and all three coats came together to make a masterpiece. It took time... but it came together.

That's a lot like life. We have a short amount of time here on this planet. And in that short time we will experience a lot. But everything you will go through and have been through has formed you into the amazingly beautiful human that you are. DONT let the ups and downs make you throw in the towel, make you start from scratch. Use everything that comes your way to form you into a warrior. A warrior can't control everything that happens to him, and that's ok. Don't try and control everything that will come your way. Don't turn to things that are external to seek control. Instead, use the energy to fight to get up. Pick yourself up when you fall. Be humble in your highs. And don't forget yourself in the rollercoaster of life.

This here is my little secret weapon I keep in the cupboard. I love to swap flour for LSA, almond meal or a FODMAP friendly flour such as coconut or buckwheat. So when you need something to rise or your recipe says self raising flour this is my little trick. Use whichever flour or alternative you like but add 1.5 teaspoons of baking powder per cup + it will become it's own self raising version. Happy baking!

Always appreciate a friend who cooks for you & makes it healthy! Thank you @sheetal3217 for hosting! You da best! 💚🙏🏼👯
