TRUTHSNO BS INFORMATION ON FITNESS & NUTRITION
I can remember, as if it were yesterday, walking into my very first day of kindergarten. Clasping tightly to my mother’s leg, crying uncontrollably and begging her not to make me go. One of my older, teenage sisters was there too, also begging my mom not to make me go. She was as heartbroken for me as I was. The baby of the family after all, with four older sisters to help protect me from anything that could disrupt my world.
Not all salads are created equal.

Dedicating a few hours one day per week for food prepping is hands down the optimal way to set yourself up for success in terms of healthy eating. But what happens when you just don’t have time to do that. Maybe you’ve been traveling, have a a particularly heavy load at work, kids’ schedules are hectic or maybe even you just aren’t at a point in your journey where you can make food prepping happen.

You do not raise yourself up by tearing others down. I don’t care if it comes to race, gender, financial security, professional accomplishment or social status, you can only become empowered from within.
How much protein do I need?
The answer is, it depends but I can almost guarantee you don’t eat enough of it.
In preparing to register my daughter for a new school, I had to dig out her original birth certificate. She was born 11 years ago, in Jiangxi, China and we adopted her at age 8 months. This is our “story” and honestly, this many years later, we don’t think much of it.
Is Meat Bad for Me?
The answer is…yes and no. I don’t say this to confuse you, but the truth is some meat is indeed bad for you and some is not. It all depends on the quality of the meat.
