Hungry? Well you won’t be after this sweet potato recipe that’s a full meal in itself! Inspired by my go-to order at a local salad shop this easy to prep dish is packed full of flavor and a TON of nutrients. 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.
Nick is a newer member of North Naples CrossFit but he’s certainly not unfamiliar with the fitness scene. As a young police officer, staying on top of his health and fitness comes with the job! That being said, he knew he needed to move his focus to his nutrition. Nick had seen the success his buddy Vince had with tracking macros and so he decided to give it a shot with the help of Own Your Eating and our 21-day nutrition jump start. Check out his amazing results in just 21 days!
I’m sure you’ve heard this time and time again, but the most significant fitness gains are made in the kitchen not in the gym. Of course, training hard is important, but your efforts can all too easily be undermined by a poor diet. Put your hand up if you’ve ever though to yourself “I don’t get it, I train all week, I eat pretty decent, so why don’t I look like a CrossFitter?!” ??♀️
If you are constantly bouncing from fad diet to fad diet, it’s pretty unlikely that you’ll get the results you want. After all, results require consistency. However, knowing where to start with your nutrition can be a bit confusing, so let’s break it down for you!
Andy Snavely is our Lifestyle Member of the Month for January 2019! When we told Andy that we’d picked him he was completely shocked. It just goes to show that hard work does not always go unnoticed. Andy may still be working towards his weight loss goals, but the consistency of his tracking and day-to-day maintenance of other important lifestyle habits has been truly impressive! Thanks to our amazing coaching platform we’re able to tracks things like whether you’re +/- 5g of your macronutrient goals, frequency of completing check-ins, daily assignments and more!
Here we are, less than 50 days into the New Year and already those big ambitions for a “New Year, New You!” are quickly diminishing. The pledge to work out every day, quit drinking alcohol during the week and to get 8 hours sleep every night lasted all of about 2 weeks before life got the better of you. You’re wondering whether anyone else is still sticking to their New Year’s resolutions and how anyone could possibly juggle a full time job, family and rock a killer set of 6-pack abs. Surely these people aren’t human? Or they don’t eat or they have a staff of people helping them with everything!
These brownies are packed with all of the chocolate, chewy deliciousness you want from a brownie with none of the guilt!

Bonus – you don’t need to bake these so you don’t have to worry about actually baking!

Whether you love spending time in the kitchen or it feels like a necessary evil, we know that having the right tools to hand can help minimize the time spent on less enjoyable tasks. Some of these might seem like a bit of a splurge, but trust us, they’re worth it!
