Exercise is the most underutilized antidepressant [FFT EP 2 – Podcast]

We recently posted a conversation starter to our twitter and instagram feed that food is the most abused anxiety drug and exercise is the most under utilized antidepressant.

We loved the perspective offered on both sides from this conversation starter. So have a listen & join the conversation too!

Cauliflower Tots [Recipe]

These cauliflower tots are a great low carb alternative to the traditional tater tot.  Plus they’re baked, which cuts down on unnecessary oils.  If you have an air fryer try using it in place of the oven to create a crispier texture!

I don’t know about you but tater tots remind me of a simpler time.  They bring me back to school lunches and hanging out with friends. My college would often serve them at the dining hall. I remember the excitement my roommates and I would have when it was tot day! They’re just so playful!  Crispy little nuggets just waiting to be dipped in ketchup and enjoyed.

Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza [Recipe]

The cheeseburger pizza isn’t a new invention. Papa John’s Double Cheeseburger Pizza is back on their menus by popular demand! Far from being the worst possible choice when going out to eat, when you look at the nutrition information for a slice of this little piece heaven, you’ll see that the macros really aren’t all that bad! The issue really only comes when you decide to polish off a whole one on your own. 😋

We recently asked our followers to determine if they could only keep one and had to give up the other, which would they choose? Cheeseburgers or pizza?! Well when it came down to it, the verdict was….

Flourless Banana Oatmeal Microwavable Muffins [Recipe]

These gluten free banana oatmeal muffins make a perfect snack anytime of day. I love them pre-workout! They are flourless, and can be made dairy free with a few substitutions. If you’re anything like me, you enjoy having a homemade baked good every once in a while. But most recipes yield 12-24 servings which I don’t always want sitting on my counter tempting me! 👀  The idea of a single serving mug-muffin is a great solution, and even more-so when it’s microwavable!

Shrimp Fajita Sheet Pan Dinner

These shrimp fajita and peppers are a super yummy option for your weekly meal prep. They’re quick and healthy and because you cook everything all on one sheet pan, there’s minimal mess too! I love Mexican food because it’s easy to make, full of flavor and all the while can be kept very lean. You can also easily add ingredients on – like choosing to serve with tortillas or guacamole if you need more carbs and fat – or just keep it simple and lean. This family recipe really caters for all and removes any concern about trying to hit your macros.

Overcoming MS with Sustainable Nutrition – Jessica Philpot

We’ve posted once before about Jessica Philpot’s amazing weight loss progress and recovery from MS (Multiple Sclerosis). But her journey is truly phenomenal and is more than deserving of this update. One of the things we love about our nutrition program is the opportunity it gives people to change their lives forever. Sure, we’re always happy for clients when they reach their body composition and fitness goals, but when we get updates from our clients 2, 3, 4+ years later and they’re still making progress with their health, still enjoying the way they eat and haven’t reverted back to old habits. Well that fills us with more joy than you could possibly imagine.
