Anonymous asked: What do you suggest for someone who doesn't like certain healthy food? Skip them and find an alternative or suck it up and eat them? For example I can't stand broccoli (and unfortunately it's pretty much the only veggie my mom likes, the joys of being home for summer lol). Would you force yourself to grow to like it or just eat other veggies? The same for things like Greek yogurt? I...

My "Tips" Up to This Point!

I said “up to this point” because I think our views about health develop over time with knowledge and experience. That being said, here are my reflections and tips/suggestions. Hopefully they can help you if you feel like...

Anonymous asked: How do you recover from soreness? I am a very active person but recently had to forgo lifting because of school, work, and more school. I finally got back in the squat rack the other day and did some front squats (4x10 @ 50%) and I can barely move 2 days later! I've been foam rolling and stretching after I shower. Nothing seems to help.

This week's groceries
:) This week’s bill was pretty low- didn’t need almond milk, eggs, or ezekiel bread. So that helped keep it down. I’ve also learned that to save money I will just buy one type of fruit and one type of vegetable for dinner. So this week I bought Fuji apples (on Thursday) and 3 lb of green beans- I’ll make these and eat these for dinner for the next 5 nights (sometimes...
