That's why I married Chris @goneeuro, he doesn't like cake (except for cheesecake), so I always get the last piece 😉🙃

I am learning more and more each day on this health journey. Today’s nugget of wisdom: protein/energy bars are NOT a health food.
Now this might be old news to some, but I’m betting that most people believe they are a healthier option to a candy bar.
Let’s compare:
Clif Bar White Chocolate Macadamia Nut
Calories: 260
Sodium: 220mg
Protein: 9g
Total Carbohydrate: 42g
Total Sugar: 21g
Snickers Bar:
Calories: 250
Sodium: 120mg
Protein: 4g
Total Carbohydrate: 33g
Total Sugar: 27g
Although the Clif Bar has more protein and does contain organic ingredients, it also has more calories, carbohydrates and sodium than the Snickers! There isn’t a huge difference in sugar quantity either. This just goes to show that just because something is labeled “organic” or “non-GMO” on it does not necessarily make it healthy. It’s just clever marketing tactics to get us to purchase their products. But the nutrition facts speak for themselves. Read yo’ labels, ladies!

Tonight's 📣 shout out 📣 goes to Ruby Day! Another amazing transformation since saying yes to our nutritional program. This program total ROCKS‼️
This is what Ruby had to say:
"The girl on the left was me 1.5 yrs ago. The girl on the right is me today. 😊
It was a long and testing road. Both physically and emotionally. I didn't wake up every day jumping for joy; excited about my accomplishments. I STRUGGLED. There were days I wanted to quit because the scale wasn't moving fast enough. Some days the scale even went UP. I asked my self what's the point? Why am I giving up all the foods I enjoyed for the scale to not even move! I would become frustrated and angry with myself. My children and husband felt my stress too 😔. But I still continued to plug away day after day convincing myself that something's got to give. I didn't quit on myself. Not this time. Not like I done so many times before. I stuck it out thru the good and the bad. I over came my negative thoughts and I pushed. I taught myself to be patient and to trust what SO MANY had done before me.
Today I am happy. I'm full of life and energy. I take picrures ALL THE TIME. Probably a bit excessively but that's ok. 😊 I've learned to celebrate my small victories and to speak positively about myself.
I go to the parks. I go swimming. I love life and I love people. I'm no longer avoiding nights out or social events. I am living life to the fullest and I'm loving every minute of it. My relationship with my children (5) is better. My relationship with my husband is the best it's been in years. I love myself and that reflects on to every relationship I have. #thankfulforthedayisaidYES #abetterway"
Wow... That’s so inspiring. Congrats Ruby!!

Haven’t been able to walk for a few days... it feels really good to get back to the park for 3 miles!! 🏃🏻‍♂️🤘

Regrann from @nutritionfactsespanol - Estas hamburguesas son deliciosas y una manera fenomenal de cubrir varias casillas de la Docena Diaria. ⠀


1 taza avena⠀
1/2 taza de trozos de nuez⠀
¼ cucharadita cúrcuma⠀
1/2 taza cebolla roja picada⠀
1/3 taza champiñones picados⠀
1 1/2 taza de frijoles negros sin sal o una lata escurrida⠀
2 cucharadas de tahini o mantequilla de almendras⠀
1 cucharada linaza molida⠀
1 cucharada levadura nutricional⠀
1 cucharada perejil fresco picado⠀
2 cucharaditas miso blanco⠀
1 cucharadita cebolla en polvo⠀
1/2 cucharadita ajo en polvo⠀
1/2 cucharadita pimentón ahumado⠀
1 cucharadita mezcla salada de especias (http://bit.ly/2BEHp3l)⠀

Precalentar el horno a 190ºC. Procesar la avena, las nueces y la cúrcuma en un procesador de alimentos hasta deshacer todo bien. Luego añadir la cebolla, los champiñones, los frijoles, el tahini y la linaza y volver a procesar. Añadir los ingredientes restantes y mezclar. Probar si la mezcla mantiene la forma. Si está seca, añadir agua; si está humeda, añadir avena; en ambos casos, una cucharada de cada vez. Dividir en 4 y formar las hamburguesas. Dejar reposar en el refrigerador media hora. Meter al horno en una bandeja con papel de horno durante 25 minutos o hasta que de doren, y dar la vuelta a la mitad del tiempo. ⠀

To the girl looking at my Instagram, to the woman clicking through my website, and to the lady reading my Instagram stories, no I don't have it all figured out yet.
What may look so easy and successful is a lot of hard work and dedication. I get up early, stay up late, go to work, study, post on Instagram, study some more, do my research, take photos, cook and so much more. All while still trying to get my business up and running, trying to find out where this should go. I want all of my followers to know that I'm not one of those fitness girls, posing in her underwear, trying to impress others. I'm not trying to get a million followers just to show off. I'm doing this, to help all of you and to get my business up and running.
I also want every girl out there to know that you can do whatever you want. If you want to start your own business, go for it. It's scary I'm not gonna lie, you may fail, you may find out it's not for you, and you won't make a ton of money with it at the beginning BUT hell you tried. So, if you're passionate about something, go for it! All it takes, is a first step. #volkswagen #girlboss #businesswomen

Did you know that water helps act as a lubricant for muscle tissue and blood flow? 💧 Make sure you keep up your fluids throughout the day! #pticastlehill #sydneyfitness

It’s become a bit more trendy these days to call carbs the nutritional scapegoat ironically having not learned our lesson the first time about dietary fat.
If you were to ask many people to name a source of carbs, they’ll typically say:
🍕 Pizza
🍟 Fries
🍰 Cake
....You get the idea. But the issue is these foods are actually higher in calories of fat.
Then you have foods like potatoes 🥔, whole grain bread 🍞 , rice 🍚, and fruit 🍉, all of which are very nutritious sources of food which add fiber, nutrients, phytochemicals, that are often thrown into the pile. Not to mention many carbs are actually very filling. On one satiety index, boiled potatoes actually outranked beef! So the claim that “carbs make you hungry” is simply not true.
Moral of the story here is forget any what’s “good” or “bad”; and just focus on a pattern where the large majority of food should be fresh and whole and good quality with minimal processing. If you really nail that with at least 80% of your food, the 20%, meaning 2 out of every ten meals (which is really pretty forgiving), can be any bit of tasty goodness your heart desires is perfectly fine. Including donuts. 🤤

I found this beauty on lunch break today, let me tell you it's delicious. What's not to like about strawberries, acai, and coconut? Three of my favorites (besides mango 😉). What's your favorite go to drink, next to water? #probiotics #coconut #lunch

BANANAS: Contain bromelain, an enzyme that helps your body recover after a workout and also acts as a safeguard for your testosterone levels. Check out this study from the University of Tasmania. 15 elite cyclists were used as test subjects. The subjects raced in a competitive cycle race for 6 consecutive days. Researchers divided the participants into two groups. 
Group 1) 7 cyclists who received 1,000 mg’s of daily bromelain. Group 2) 8 cyclists who received a similar-looking placebo.
 On days 1,3, and 6 over the cycling days, researchers took blood samples and examined the samples for various exercise markers, including testosterone.
 As expected, the high amount of endurance exercise significantly lowered blood testosterone levels in the placebo group. However, the group getting 1,000 mg’s of bromelain supplementation had stable levels of testosterone throughout the 6 days of cycle racing.
GRAPES: The skins of red grapes contain resveratol, a proven aromatase inhibitor. Aromatase is an enzyme that converts testosterone and other androgens into estrogen. Consuming grapes and other sources of resveratol like the ones we’ve previously mentioned can help support healthy testosterone levels.
LEMON, LIME, & OTHER CITRUS FRUITS: Citrus fruit lowers the stress hormone cortisol because it’s jam-packed with antioxidants. This according to a recent study published in the U.S. National Library of Medicine. It also contains vitamin A, which is an essential vitamin for testosterone production.

Citrus fruits also helps lower estrogen levels, thus promoting healthy male hormones.
 Vitamin C also reduces stress and inflammation.

Are white potatoes really that bad for us? Are sweet potatoes a much better option?
All potatoes contain carbohydrates, which our bodies need for energy; they also have fiber. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of Vitamin A, which is important for eye health. White potatoes have potassium, which can lower blood pressure and improve blood circulation.
The problem is how much we eat and how they are prepared: huge loaded baked potatoes, baskets of French fries and bags of potato chips!
If any potatoes are prepared in a high fat method, then NONE of those options are healthy (including sweet potato fries and chips)!! Eat a variety of real potatoes. They have many nutritional benefits. Just stick to 1 cup per meal, check out smaller “pee wee” potatoes, eat the skins, and try out different colorful potatoes too! (that’s a PURPLE sweet potato at the end of the video!)

*NEED MORE PROTEIN?* by @roballenfitness
By now everyone should know that no matter what “diet” or “eating structure” you follow, you need a lot of protein. I’d suggest a minimum of 0.82 grams per lb of body weight.⠀
What that means is that you’ve got to try to get it in each meal and snack. Even then you might need to supplement a bit. Your best bet is always eating good quality, whole foods though. If you need a bit more though, don’t be afraid to supplement a bit. And no you’re not “doing protein” it’s NOT an anabolic steroid 😂😂⠀
Above are some great, high protein options for whether you eat meat, are vegan and/or need to supplement.⠀
Note that I put lentils, beans and chickpeas WITH a serving of rice. The rice compliments these products well because it has a high methionine content, balancing out their low content of this amino acid.⠀
Makes sense? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below! ⠀

Some important things to note:
🥑Eating fat to get thin just isn’t correct.
🥑Oil is not a health food.
🥑The fat you eat is the fat you wear (as per Dr. John McDougall).
🥑Carbs don’t really make you fat. Is it possible for the body to turn carbs to fat? Yes. But it is a really inefficient process (de novo lipogenesis). So unless you’re eating a TON of excess carbs and your glycogen stores are saturated, this won’t really happen much. (If you are insulin resistant, you have to be more cautious about simple carbs + high fat diet).
🥑Cheese pizza & donuts are high FAT foods. It bothers me when people say “I have to avoid carbs to lose weight” referring to these🤦🏼‍♀️
🥑You SHOULD consume some fats in your diet but they should come from whole food plant sources, like avocados, nuts and seeds. 😊✌🏼
& don’t just take my word for it! The following are great books to read if you want to learn more about nutrition and health, and these doctors are great to listen to and learn from:
Proteinaholic - Dr. Garth Davis
How Not to Die - Dr. Michael Greger
The Starch Solution - Dr. John McDougall

👉🏼El huevo es una proteína Gold Standar✨posee vitaminas A, D, B1, B9 y B12, y a pesar de ser una de las mejores fuentes de proteína para los Ovolacteovegetarianos, tiene muy muuuy mala fama por su supuesta asociación directa con el aumento del colesterol en sangre❌, pero ¿será cierto?🤔 🔬Estudios recientes que evaluaron el perfil lipídico de diversos pacientes sanos no encontraron relación del consumo de huevo 🍳con mayor frecuencia semanal con los de menor frecuencia, por lo que 🚫NO apoyan la hipótesis de que un mayor consumo de huevo se acompañe de la alteración del colesterol y triglicéridos en sangre✅ ➡Actualmente los desbalances en el perfil colesterolémico se asocian a otros a factores y no directamente al consumo de colesterol en la dieta.
✅Es por ello que desde el 2015, la Asociación Americana del Corazón retiró la recomendación de disminuir el consumo de colesterol en los alimentos y ha enfatizado el llevar una ✅alimentación saludable✅alta en fibra ✅y baja en grasas saturadas y grasas trans ☝🏼️Sin embargo, el consumo de alimentos varia de persona a persona, y va en dependencia de su estado de salud. En ese sentido los estudios también demuestran que los pacientes obesos, con resistencia a la insulina 🔸y sujetos con predisposición genética el metabolismo de las lipoproteínas (colesterol bueno y malo) es más sensible a alteraciones cuando se consumen alimentos que lo poseen, lo cual ❌interfiere en el perfil lipídico de estos pacientes y ❌genera consecuencias que afectan su calidad de vida y ponen en riesgo su salud👀 👉🏼 Es por ello que, en Cocina Vida te recomendamos consultar a tu especialista para que tomes las mejores decisiones en relación a tu alimentación, estado de salud y características individuales✳️ Fuentes
