Reason no.836 why I love #FlexibleEating: This recipe is for 4lbs of pork butt cooked in beef broth and seasoned with warm spices. I made these carnitas street tacos that were (no exaggeration) as good as the $50 plate from my all time favorite high end SoCal Mexican restaurant. Try them out and I promise, you and your team of minions will be fighting over who gets the leftovers!
Despite 45 million Americans going on diets every year and spending in excess of $33 billion on weight loss products, 2/3 of the population is overweight or obese. Our nation needs education about nutrition, now more than ever! Being overweight doesn’t just provide physical limitations and health issues, it can cause problems in our relationships, making people feel self-conscious and disconnected from the person they truly feel they are.

I recently discovered fresh passion fruit is delicious! I must admit that until a few weeks ago I had never cut open a raw passion fruit. And I was missing out!

Whether you’re a CrossFitter, soccer player, gymnast or American ninja warrior, fueling your performance will be a huge part of your ultimate success when your day of competition comes around. Many non-competitive athletes assume that the key difference between themselves and competitors is that competitive athletes train many more hours than them and that’s what sets them apart. Whilst it might be true that plenty more hours are spent practicing, training, honing their athletic skills and improving strength, the biggest differentiator is that competitive athletes include nutrition as a part of their training regimen.
Inspired by my go-to order at a local salad shop this easy to prep dish is packed full of flavor. It’s vegetarian but swap out the yogurt with a soy or almond based one and it becomes a completely vegan dish!
A balanced diet is a taco in each hand, wouldn’t you agree?! ? To say I’m partial to the odd taco would be like saying Yogi Bear kinda likes picnic baskets, or Homer Simpson occasionally eats donuts. You get the picture! I like to think of tacos as a healthy hybrid between a plate of nachos and a salad. With just a few ingredients, you have a simple yet super tasty flavor combination that makes these dressed-up Mexican sandwiches not only delicious, but cheap and very easy to make yourself.
Traditional pasta is delicious but super high in carbohydrates. While some days are worth saving some carbs for a spaghetti dinner or ramen noodles, sometimes we turn to vegetables for our noodle fix. This is a wonderful recipe to make a big batch of and to use throughout the week for meal prep and you can even add some chopped up grilled chicken breast for protein. There’s tons of flavor and fiber to keep you fueled and happy.
