Can I have your opinion? Pretty please...

I am looking to gather some market research for a client and have developed an entertaining little questionnaire about running, fitness, and virtual races if you have a few minutes to play along. I am an avid runner myself and want to build a very cool running platform that will start with some awesome virtual races then add on in-person races so we can all get back to the start line. I greatly appreciate your time!

Ok! Tomorrow is the first day of the second half of 2019..... Who's gonna be in class with me at 8:30???
Wanted to say a big thank you to sam and amy for all their incredible training and encouragement this year! You guys have an excellent program and know how to get results! Pictures are from beginning of this year to yesterday.

Thereโ€™s a misconception that all cereal is bad for you. Itโ€™s true that many of them are highly processed sugary sabotaging diet traps ๐Ÿชค However, there are some cereals that arenโ€™t terrible. Hereโ€™s how to choose a good one:

Read the label ๐Ÿท for:
โœ… Higher protein content - protein is great for keeping you fuller longer! Look for a brand that is higher in protein instead of refined carbohydrates.
โœ… Higher in fiber - fiber also helps keep you fuller longer and fiber requires more energy to break down that refined carbohydrates so, your body has to expend more energy to extract energy from the food making it a better choice than fast digesting carbs.
โŒ Added Sugar - look for a brand with the least amount of added sugar possible
โŒSmall Serving Size - 100 calories per serving? Great!...oh wait, a serving size is only 1/8 cup? Yikes...if you want more than a few bites, youโ€™ll need a larger serving! Watch out for brands that appear low calorie but, actually arenโ€™t because the serving size on the label is so small!

Need a healthy meal for the whole family? Sheet pan dinners are a breeze!

CHICKEN FAJITAS WITH HOMEMADE SALSA
โฐ IN LESS THAN 30 MINUTES

โญ๏ธIngredientsโญ๏ธ

๐ŸŒถSalsa๐ŸŒถ

1 pint cherry tomatoes or 2 large tomatoes cut into quarters
1 medium poblano pepper
4 medium garlic cloves peeled and halved, to taste
2 tsp avocado oil or extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp salt to taste
1/2 tsp black pepper to taste
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 cup cilantro
1/2 lime juiced

Chicken and Veggie Fajitas ๐ŸŒฎ

1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
4 medium bell peppers any color desired
1 medium red onion or sweet yellow onion
2 tsp chili powder
1-1 1/2 tsp salt to taste
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 lime juiced
chopped cilantro optional

โœณ๏ธSpecial Equipmentโœณ๏ธ

โœ…sheet pan x2, a half sheet pan and quarter sheet pan are ideal
โœ…small bowl
โœ…blender or a food processor should also work

โญ๏ธInstructionsโญ๏ธ

โœ…Preheat the oven to 400F. Line two sheet pans with parchment paper. A half sheet pan is ideal for the chicken and veggies and a quarter sheet pan is ideal for the salsa.
โœ…Slice the bell peppers into sticks and onion into wedges. Add the peppers and onions to one side of a prepared sheet pan.
โœ…Slice chicken on the bias (see this video for help), about ยฝ-inch thick. Add the chicken to the other half of the sheet pan.

โœ…Combine the fajita seasonings in a small bowl: chili powder, salt, black pepper, oregano, smoked paprika, cumin. Rub the seasonings into the chicken on all sides and sprinkle over the vegetables. Drizzle a small amount of avocado or extra virgin olive oil on top of the chicken and veggies (just enough to lightly coat). Using your hands, mix the oil with the veggies and chicken.
โญ๏ธMake sure everything is in a single layer on the sheet panโญ๏ธ
โœ…Combine all the salsa ingredients, except the cilantro and lime juice, on the second sheet pan.
Bake the chicken and veggies and salsa ingredients for 20 minutes, rotating the sheet pans halfway through.
โœ…Once cooked, carefully add the salsa ingredients to a blender, along with the juice from half of a lime and cilantro. Carefully pulse the ingredients, making sure to vent for steam. You can make this salsa as smooth or as a chunky as you desire.
โœ…Squeeze the other half of the lime over the fajitas. Sprinkle chopped cilantro over the fajitas (optional). Stir the lime juice and cilantro into the fajita mixture.
โœ…Serve the fajita mixture with whatever fits your calorie budget for that meal! You can use tortillas, sour cream, guacamole, etc. Or, serve in butter lettuce in place of the tortillas. Lower calories Options can be low fat sour cream, Greek yogurt ranch, low carb tortillas, avocado slices etc. Another alternative is to serve the chicken and veggies with rice to make fajita burrito bowls. Top with the homemade salsa.
The salsa may also be made and served alone with tortilla chips--so good!

โœ…Recipe Notes
Chicken Note: If you want, you could use boneless, skinless chicken thighs in place of the chicken breasts, or mix in both.

๐ƒ๐ข๐ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ ๐ค๐ง๐จ๐ฐ ๐ฆ๐ž๐š๐ฅ ๐ซ๐ž๐ฉ๐ฅ๐š๐œ๐ž๐ฆ๐ž๐ง๐ญ ๐ฌ๐ก๐š๐ค๐ž๐ฌ ๐š๐œ๐ญ๐ฎ๐š๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ฒ ๐ฐ๐จ๐ซ๐ค? Yes! For people with super busy lives, nutritent dense quality meal replacements with a good ratio of carbs, fats, and protein can really help with weight loss...and not just for a quick fix!

Meal replacements appear to offer multiple benefits, including portion control and the ability to induce a calorie deficit, a method for increasing protein intake to aid in satiety along with providing structure, and convenience to weight-loss plans. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics identifies the use of meal replacements as an evidence-based strategy for weight loss and maintenance in overweight and obese adults (Raynor & Champagne, 2016).

Additionally, meal replacements offer an opportunity to increase the diet quality of clients by adding in nutrient-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, and calcium- and vitamin D-rich beverages.

๐‡๐จ๐ฐ ๐๐จ ๐ˆ ๐œ๐ก๐จ๐จ๐ฌ๐ž ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐›๐ž๐ฌ๐ญ ๐ฆ๐ž๐š๐ฅ ๐ซ๐ž๐ฉ๐ฅ๐š๐œ๐ž๐ฆ๐ž๐ง๐ญ ๐ฌ๐ก๐š๐ค๐ž ๐Ÿ๐จ๐ซ ๐ฆ๐ž?

To help inform choices (and filter out the scams), here are five things to look for in a meal replacement bar or shake.

1๏ธโƒฃ ๐‹๐จ๐ฐ ๐†๐ฅ๐ฒ๐œ๐ž๐ฆ๐ข๐œ โ€“ Carbohydrates in the form of starches and sugars are critical to deliver the body a steady source of energy for a longer period of time. But foods that are high glycemicโ€”meaning theyโ€™re fast-absorbing sugars and/or they donโ€™t provide much protein, fat, or fiber in addition to the carbohydratesโ€”are known to cause a spike in blood sugar, which can be followed closely by a crash, and then hunger. Low-glycemic bars ensure a steady source of energy to keep you feeling full longer.

2๏ธโƒฃ ๐–๐ก๐ž๐ฒ ๐๐ซ๐จ๐ญ๐ž๐ข๐ง โ€“ The type of protein used in meal replacement shakes matters in a big way. Whey is shown to promote more satiety and fat loss than any other kind of protein, and when paired with exercise, promotes muscle growth (1). Whey protein in its most natural and unprocessed form is described as undenatured. Research has shown that the consumption of undenatured whey protein has antioxidant effects beneficial for overall health (2). ๐ƒ๐š๐ข๐ซ๐ฒ ๐…๐ซ๐ž๐ž? ๐๐จ ๐๐ซ๐จ๐›๐ฅ๐ž๐ฆ! Stick with Pea, H**p, and Brown rice protein as a blend in combination also contains complete proteins and amino acids!

That ought to include carbohydrates, fats, and protein, but in a fraction of the calories. Carbohydrates and fats have earned a bad reputation, when in reality they are vital to the bodyโ€™s ability to function. When looking for a shake, choose one that contains healthy fats, complex carbohydrates, natural sugars, fiber, and an ample amount of high-quality protein. Some shakes are too high in calories while others are too low. ๐€ ๐ก๐ž๐š๐ฅ๐ญ๐ก๐ฒ ๐ฆ๐ž๐š๐ฅ ๐ซ๐ž๐ฉ๐ฅ๐š๐œ๐ž๐ฆ๐ž๐ง๐ญ ๐ฌ๐ก๐š๐ค๐ž ๐ฌ๐ก๐จ๐ฎ๐ฅ๐ ๐œ๐จ๐ง๐ญ๐š๐ข๐ง ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ-๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ ๐œ๐š๐ฅ๐จ๐ซ๐ข๐ž๐ฌโ€”still promoting weight loss, but not sacrificing any nutrients or your energy levels. ๐ƒ๐จ ๐ง๐จ๐ญ ๐ฌ๐ญ๐š๐ซ๐ฏ๐ž ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ฌ๐ž๐ฅ๐Ÿ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐ฅ๐จ๐ฐ ๐œ๐š๐ฅ๐จ๐ซ๐ข๐ž ๐ฌ๐ก๐š๐ค๐ž๐ฌ! ๐’๐ญ๐š๐ก๐ฉ ๐ข๐ญ!

4๏ธโƒฃ๐’๐š๐ญ๐ข๐ž๐ญ๐ฒ โ€“ Dieting is often associated with uncomfortable hunger that comes with cutting calories. In clinical trials, consuming a meal replacement bar has shown to curb appetite and lead to safe and sustained weight loss (3). When supplementing your diet with a low-calorie yet nutritious meal shake, cutting calories can be effortless and sustainable because your body is still being properly nourished. When meal replacement shakes are filled with high-quality whey protein, they also have the benefit of providing increased satiety resulting in the consumption of fewer calories throughout the day (4). Fiber is also an important part of any diet to enhance gastrointestinal health and function and increase satiety.

5๏ธโƒฃ ๐๐ฎ๐š๐ฅ๐ข๐ญ๐ฒ โ€“ Not all health shakes deliver what they claim to have in them. If the company doesnโ€™t have an established no-compromise quality policy that involves rigorous testing, then its nutritional content could be offโ€”by as much as 15 percent! That could mean extra calories you donโ€™t realize youโ€™re getting, usually from fat and sugar. Plus, if not clinically tested to be low-glycemic, you run the risk of blood sugar spikes that could thwart your health and weight-loss goals.
