I have just added a ton of homemade Larabar recipes to the cooking section. These bars are absolutely amazing. They are great for snacks, meal replacements, and desserts when you have a sweet tooth.
Eventually, I’d like to include some pictures of each bar so that you guys can get a better idea for what they look like. You can find a link to the recipes here:
PROJECTS UPDATE: I also have been working on this HUGE ongoing excel project that has already proven to be very useful. I’ve been compiling a list of foods (all the foods I can think of) with how many calories and grams of macronutrients and micronutrients each food has. It is very time consuming, but I know that it will be worth it.
Basically, this list will be a great food comparison tool so that you know which food choices to make. If you are an avid food tracker, or looking to compete in body-building or figure competitions, this list will allow you to see and record the macros you are eating.
It may be a while until it is complete, but I am very hopeful! At the rate I am going, I plan to finish it up in February – we’ll see.
UPCOMING PROJECTS: In the meantime, I am going to be posting more quick healthy recipes, and include a section on basic cooking skills so that those of you who would like to learn to make home cooked meals will be able to get a good grasp in a short time.
I just completed the Macronutrient section of the What are nutrients? page. This will give you a quick, general understanding about the different macronutrients that we take in for fuel and bodily function. Macronutrients consist of Proteins, Fats, Carbohydrates, and Water and Fiber. To find out more about what these nutrients are and what our body uses them for, follow the below link.
My next project is working on micronutrients, which consist of vitamins and minerals. I’ll create a post when that’s up and running.
**If you are interested in weight loss, I highly recommend reading about nutrients; the more information you have, the better – it will help you make the correct food choices because you will better understand why your body needs certain foods.
I just finished the PDF versions of my exercise and nutrition trackers! I’ve been using the ‘unpretty’ versions of these trackers for years now and find them very useful. Just go to the ‘Download’ tab and click on the links.
My next project is to finish the Excel versions so that you can track progress right on your computer instead of printing them out hard copy. I want to make sure they are super user friendly before posting them. Feel free to use them to keep tabs on your fitness.
The site is a little limited at the moment until I get things up and running and add a bit more content. I plan to have a few great features in the near future including:
- Personalized Fitness Programs
- Downloadable Fitness content (such as trackers)
- Articles on and tips on Fitness and Fitness Nutrition
Be sure to keep checking back – this site is only going to keep growing!
