About Nutrition
When it comes to living a healthy life, the only thing as important as exercise is diet. It’s all about learning to make healthier choices. I like to experiment in the kitchen with different healthy ingredients and share my recipes. I complement my 15-minute workouts with 15-minute meals full of healthy nutrients that support my body rather than destroy it. Why not give them a try!

    04/01/2014
    Considering our bodies are made up of mostly water, most of us know that proper hydration is essential for our wellbeing.  Interestingly enough, as newborns we are 75% water.  As adults, our bodies end up being around 55-60% water though that number decreases as we age.  It goes without saying then that drinking enough water on a daily basis is necessary, especially when we’re sweating Read More.
