Do you still like chocolate milk? This pertains to both dairy and non-dairy. It has the "perfect" amount of carbohydrates, protein, and fat for optimal post-workout recovery. However! It's not a meal replacement. Make sure to eat something GREEN (something that comes green naturally!) everyday. Green beer does not count.
greatist.com Researchers say chocolate milk may be more than just delicious. It could also be the ideal post-workout beverage.

[01/30/13] POPCORN! Delicious and nutritious! Seriously. Not all popcorn; just plain popcorn. A cup of plain is about 31 calories (compared to a cup of tater chips which gives you oh...about 139 calories). Popcorn also contains fiber and is 100% whole grain. And whole grains are really good for you because they contain those things we're all screaming about called antioxidants (found in the hull, or the part that gets stuck in your teeth). So have your popcorn, but have it with olive or coconut oil, herbs, spices, nutritional yeast. And keep the unhealthy additives to a bare minimum.

[06/01/12] Want to lose weight? Start by eating your breakfast. Everyday.
Need a reason to start lifting? Here are 20 to get you started.
1. Lose 40% More Fat – studies show that dieters lose mostly fat when lifting, while those that don’t lift lose both fat and muscle.
2. Burn More Calories – pure and simple; muscles burn more calories
3. Clothes will Fit Better – unused muscle is replaced by fat over time. Here’s something scary; those between 30 and 50 years of age lose a whopping 10% of muscle and this doubles by age 60!
4. Keep Your Body Seemingly Young – continue getting off the couch without much trouble.
5. Build Stronger Bones – resistance training (aka lifting) increases bone density and elevates blood levels of osteocalcin, a marker of bone growth, by 19%!
6. Increase Flexibility – Olympic weight lifters rate second only to gymnasts in overall flexibility. Not that you want to be an Olympic weight lifter, but flexibility is improved through the hips and shoulders with resistance training.
7. Healthier Heart – Lifting gets your heart pumping, helps blood pressure scores, and reduces the risk of stroke and heart attack.
8. Prevent/Reduce Diabetes – Strength training reduces blood sugar levels and improves sensitivity to insulin.
9. Reduce Risk of Cancer – resistance trainers portrayed significantly less oxidative cell damage than non-lifters.
10. Diet Will Improve – On top of burning calories, weight lifting helps your brain stick to a diet.
11. Handle Stress Better – Keep calm with lower levels of stress hormones and a faster recovery of blood pressure levels.
12. Reduce Jet Lag Time – Strength training helps the body adjust faster to time zone changes or work shift changes.
13. Be Happier – Improve overall mood and reduce anger
14. Sleep Better – Lifting hard helps the body rest easier, fall asleep faster and sleep longer.
15. Get in Shape Faster – Lifting improves both strength and provides cardio benefits.
16. Fight Depression – Squats are the new Prozac?? Lifting provides a similar response rate at reducing symptoms of major depression as does medication, but without the negative side effects.
17. Be More Productive – Be 15% more productive, which leads to being less stressed and happier with your job.
18. Add Years to Your Life – Get Strong to Live Long. Total-body strength is linked to lower risks of death from cardiovascular disease, cancer and other causes of major disease.
19. Stay Sharp – Lifting weights decreases blood levels of homocysteine, a protein that is linked to the development of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
20. Be Even Smarter – Resistance training enhances cognitive function and results in better short-term and long-term memory, improves verbal reasoning and increases the attention span.
Remember these results come from consistent strength training 3 times a week for at least 6 months.
