Do you love burritos? Fish tacos? Wraps? Fitnessing? Well, let’s combine all of those in one dinner, and make it right now. Yes. Let’s do just that.

Here is what you’ll need, if you’re interested in joining me (and it just so happens this will serve four people, so bring yo friends!):

  • 2 tilapia filets (around 6-8oz each)
  • 8 collard green leaves (or stalks, or whatever they are)
  • an onion (red or yellow, whatever’s your jam)
  • a red bell pepper
  • a lime
  • seafood magic fish seasoning, or taco seasoning, or one of those type things
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 mango*
  • 1 cup of cabbage or broccoli slaw for crunch (I had leftover zucchini, so I chopped some and used that)

*If you don’t like mangoes, you can use pineapple, or any other fruit you like. Or, if you’re one of those sad boring people, you can use no fruit at all. Read More

OK you guys I’ll keep this short, because I just did a Bikram yoga class and they are JUST THE WORST, and all I want to do is go to sleep and try and forget it ever happened (also, I do this about once a week).

We are going to talk about almond milk, why you should drink it, and how easy it is to replace whatever milk product (milk, maybe?) you currently drink with some unsweetened (vanilla if you’re feeling sassy) almond milk.

Let’s start with wtf it is. Almond milk is made from soaking almonds in water for a day or two, and then blending that with more water, and straining the blended concoction. There you have it. Almond milk.  It looks almost exactly like milk, but is better.

WHAT’S SO GOOD ABOUT IT

First of all, if you’re lactose intolerant, or allergic to milk, you can still drink almond milk. So, that’s what would be what’s so good about it. If this part is irrelevant to you, first of all THANK GOODNESS because no one should miss out on cheese, but second of all, there are still plenty of reasons you’ll convert to almond milk. Let me present them in list form. Read More

Okay everybody it’s time to get going with some meatballs. Regular meatballs are made with ground beef, which is not a great source of lean protein, as we all know. These meatballs are a recipe that my mother makes, that was passed down to her by Rachael Ray. We made some adjustments and now they are perfect fitnessing meatballs. SO HERE YOU GO. Read More

I’ll tell you what it is. QUINOA IS YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND, THAT’S WHAT.

But also, it’s technically a seed, and one that acts like a whole grain, and is like pasta’s older, prettier sister. If you’re interested in saying it aloud, you can do so by saying KEEN-wah. There. You’ve done it.

Let’s talk about how RIDICULOUS it is that you aren’t already eating this all the time by going through all of the ways in which Quinoa satisfies the This Food Is Awesome requirements. Read More

If you’ve been fitnessing for a while, you know that all in all it’s basically a big thumbs up. You have energy, you’re getting stronger, you can eat cool stuff and drink wine all the time (and cocktails sometimes) and you’ve got endorphins to spare.  This is all very positive.

However, there is one sad thing about fitnessing, which is that you can’t eat a bunch of spoonfuls of mayonnaise. Or really even one spoonful, if we’re being honest here.  This is tragic because any “salad” that isn’t your standard lettuce-and-friends concoction is made with mayo as a main component. Potato salad, pasta salad, tuna salad, chicken salad, and egg salad are all mayonnaise-fests.

SO NOW WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO?? Read More

We’re all adults here, so I think it’s safe to say that we should have more than ketchup and Kraft Singles in our fridges at this point. Eating out and ordering in are really easy ways to add unnecessary calories, so it’s important to keep your fridge stocked with supplies for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. Because you are a badass who is fitnessing, it’s even more important that those supplies are healthy and nutritious, because we all know that if you stock up on mac n cheese, you’ll be on your way to a shame hangover in no time.

I’ve divided this into 3 categories for your organizational pleasure. Read More

Did you rip that paper towel and use 1/4 of it to wipe up some protein milkshake spillage, and the other 3/4 to make your sandwich to bring to work? Congratulations. You like efficiency as much as I do.

Did you save those few rogue onion, tomato, and kale slices from turkey burgers at dinner to put in an egg white omelet the next day? Such a great re-use of resources.

Did you save 6 seconds by not putting on a coat to go to the gym, since you’re only going to take it off once you get there anyway? What a time saver.

I think it’s clear that we share the EXACT same love for efficiency, which is why this tip is especially easy / hard.

It stems from a very common, very SERIOUS problem: you are full but your plate is not yet empty. Read More

Hey Busy Person.  I know, you’re SO busy. I don’t know how you do it. I can’t even imagine how hard it is to run that business / work those many hours / juggle that many jobs / walk your dog that often / knit that many hats / write all those webisodes / record all those guitar riffs / memorize all those lines / program all that functionality / save all those babies / etc.

Listen, Busy Person, I know you’re SO BUSY and trying to fitness on top of that (and first of all GOOD FOR YOU because that shit is HARD) but, there is one more thing to add to your list of all those things you do.

Make your damn lunch. Just do it. Read More
