Cool (Mostly Health Related) Stuff I Found This Week

Fitness

If you want to make exercise stick, you’re going to have to learn to love it!

Getting ready for bathing suit season? Here are some great tummy toning exercises to get you looking awesome!

Here’s an interesting article about the best workout for your body type. This is great for my pear butt!

Great article about the power of positive thinking when you’re working out! Although geared towards people who like to lift weights more than cardio, you can still translate the idea over to anything you do!

Recipes/Nutrition

I was discussing alternative calcium sources to a client the other day and within hours, this article from The Huffington Post popped up! Coincidence? I think not! I just goes to further prove that, no, milk is NOT the only way you can get mega amounts of calcium into your diet (without having to resort to pills or chews).

Ohhh!!! These look good AND healthy! Double rich chocolate protein cookies! Think I may whip some of these up this week!

I love avocado! It’s so incredibly healthy and versatile! Check out this recipe for a simple avocado pasta!

If you’re having difficulties trying to maintain a balanced meal, here are 6 steps that will help you tremendously!

If you want to be inspired on a daily basis to live a healthier life, follow inspiring people on social media! Here are the top 10 online health influencers complete with their social media links!

Mmm…smoothies! And ones that balance your body and mind are even better! Here are some handy recipes for detox smoothies you can try. Just remember that your smoothie should replace a meal or snack, it shouldn’t be in addition to what you normally eat! Smoothies can be nutritious and have plenty of health benefits but they can also contain a ton of calories! Replace your breakfast or lunch with one or have it as a snack in the afternoon!

I love beans and I love black beans the most (well, it may be tied with romano beans) so I can’t wait to try this black bean recipe from Mens Health! It just sounds so savoury!
