Vegan Keto: Day 4

Shift Shop: Vegan Meal Planning

When I saw the Shift Shop meal plan i kinda freaked out a bit- week three is NO CARBS! well… you get carbs of course. fruit is the bomb. but you aren’t “supposed to” eat things like potatoes.

Basics of Eating Clean

Everyone, and i mean everyone, has their own definition of “clean eating”.

What’s the best source of Omega 3s? Flax vs Hemp vs Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia!

So i already blogged before about Omega-3 supplements & why (or why not) we should take them (fish burps)! But this is about after you’ve decided to get your omega 3s from a plant based source & are just trying to figure out what the best source is or the difference between the sources. I like to mix it…

Vegan Tri Fuel!

Fueling for a triathlon is WAY more stressful for me than it needs to be. I overthink everything!! And i recently was listening to a podcast that made SO much sense and told me to stop looking outside for what will work for me. every body is different. and we all have different tastes, metabolisms,…

I travel. Like… a lot. Mostly for work (I go to Chicago one week a month) but for fun too! And when traveling you get thrown off from your awesome habits and routine you have when you’re home… and that stinks! But if you do a little advance planning (which I’m getting better at every…
