The Most delicious and healthy breakfast

Originally posted on teenage trends:

Want to know one of the healthiest restaurants in town? This restaurant has everything from chia seeds, to organic tea to even veggie burgers. This healthy and relaxing environment is called be organics, located in great neck. I went there this morning and got myself a toast with feta cheese and tomato toped with avocado. It looks amazing and tastes even better. It was one of the most tastiest yet healthiest meal i have ever eaten and, it’s one of the best ways to start your morning off right!! What’s even better is it’s so easy to make that you can even make this at home!

If you’re one of those people that finds keeping fit a little bit…well, boring.  Then I hear you.  Endless hours on an exercise bike or pounding the pavements after work – let’s face it, it’s not for all of us.

That’s precisely why Crossfit should appeal to people says Alex Etherington, Rangiora based Crossfit trainer.  It doesn’t get boring because it’s varied and you don’t spend a long time on any one thing.  It incorporates things like running, weight lifting, kettle bells, rowing, etc.  So it stops that ‘boredom factor’.

And, done right, it can change lives.  Alex himself says he was unfit, unhealthy and overweight when he first came across Crossfit.  He’d previously tried going to the gym and running but just couldn’t get excited by it.   But Crossfit got him hooked and got him fit.  And it inspired him…

More than Yogurt

Originally posted on My quest for fitness:

For the next 26 days (at least) it is my intent to review, foods, vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, etc. that are the ideal of health and nutrition for each letter of the alphabetical. And since I have OCD tendencies and like to shake things up a bit; we’re going backwards so they’ll be in alphabetical order as we scroll down the blog – bear with my idiocentric ways.

Yes thank you…

It does not take much thought to think of one’s typical Y beginning foods such as yogurt, yams, and yeast but are they healthy and nutritious? Yogurt, especially the recent fad of greek and pro-bitotic yogurts, has become quite popular in the diet and nutrition world.  Yogurt in general is known for a healthy dose of dairy and “good” bacteria but it is also a good recovery fuel for post-work out snacks, offers a myriad of vitamins, and a generous helping of protein…

Tricep training

Originally posted on House Lifts n' Reviews:

I get asked often what I do to train my triceps. My two favorite exercises for them are the lying close-grip behind the head tricep extension (like skullcrushers but with a different range of motion back behind the head rather than to the forehead) and weighted tricep dips, aka weighted bench dips.

A lot of people get hung up on keeping a portion of the arm stationary while another if free to move only a certain range, blah, blah, blah. You can decide what works for your body and what range of motion hits your triceps! Every body is different, adapt your training to your body.

Here is a video for the extensions

Oh my smoothie!

Originally posted on Belle Rouge:

Last year, an illness and taking medication caused my body to be sluggish and bloated. Since last September, I have changed my lifestyle by exercising a lot and my eating habits by being on a clean diet. It’s improved my health and I always feel so energised.

My favourite thing of the day is making my ‘booster’ drink a mixture of both fruits and veg. It might sound really gross, but trust me it’s amazing!

With this you’re drinking up all your five a day(if you haven’t got time to cook veg alongside each meal).

Here’s what I made the other day: -

Chickpea Super Bowl

Originally posted on My Clean Eating Experiment:

Sometimes I feel like I’m in the Chopped kitchen or on Master Chef when I’m going through my fridge and cupboards looking for something to make for dinner. If you’ve never seen the shows, contestants get these mystery baskets with five or so ingredients that you wouldn’t think go together and they have to come up with dishes for the judges.

Tonight was one of those nights. I had no meats thawed, hardly any produce and no clue as to what to make for dinner. I was on Instagram, scrolling through my home page, and I saw a recipe from @SkinnyKitchen that made me look twice: a chickpea avocado bowl.

I had all of the ingredients minus the nutritional yeast (apparently it acts like cheese for vegans), so I dove right in. As I was preparing the components to this masterpiece I realized that my avocado had passed into the…
