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!

    The Raw Food Diet

    08/06/2014
    The raw food diet became quite popular after celebrities such as Demi Moore actively preached the benefits of it.  It’s a deceptively simply diet that focuses on eating foods that have not been cooked in any way, shape, or form.  Strict raw foodists insist that cooking our foods renders them toxic or strips them of their nutritional value.  That means that any type of heat.....Read More.

    Homemade Low Carb Chocolate

    It's been a while since I had an actual store bought chocolate, made out of all the usual ingredients including sugar or sugar alcohols.
