Chicken Spinach Miracle

Hey following folk, I’m back with another great idea, brewed up in the midst hours of an afternoon. I tend to eat a fair amount of spinach and chicken, day in and day out, usually side by side. I realized, maybe I am eating a minute bit better than the surrounding peers in my environments, I thought to myself, I should give this salad thing a shot; being I eat chicken, and spinach practically 3 times a day it’s probably a no brainer. What I came up with is the miracle in my book. Enough Vitamins and nutrients from just adding a few ingredients together, makes 2 bland foods extremely delectable. Onto the Concoction… *As a rule of thumb usually I measure with my hand as opposed to the standard or metric system, adjust accordingly for your tastes and preferences. •Start off with a bowl, any ordinary size will suit. •A handful and a half full of Spinach, baby or regular. •2 Tablespoons worth of Greek Yogurt. (Sometimes I buy the Honey, or Vanilla for a sweet taste.) •About 4-6 oz of warmed Grilled or Baked Chicken, about the size of a fist (I would imagine fried or crispy would taste good, but that is for you to decide on your own quest). •One half of a Banana, cut into half dollar size chips. •Sparingly a just amount of nuts, 3-7 for some crunch. Almond, Walnuts, Cashews, Brazil your choice, if you decide to incorporate this regularly, switch it up and be excited for a new taste each meal. That’s about it, if you have the chicken pre-cooked, and...

Vanilla Berry Shake

Here today I have a real tasty and healthy treat. Still working on perfection of the recipe, but solid enough to work with. Nice to have as a great addition to a small meal, by itself, or after a good workout. Check it out below.. I use a Ninja Blender, a excellent tool to work with. -Start off with 12-14oz of milk -add a cup of frozen mixed berries -1-2oz of vanilla protein powder -4-5 almonds, or a tablespoon amount of peanut butter for taste Blend to a smooth consistency, 15-30 seconds should do the trick.

Cardio Boost 1

Part of a Mini Series I named “Cardio Boost” -Stretching- 5-10 minutes. A must have for every workout, whether an athlete or just trying to get in shape, you need to always have some elasticity before you get your body pumpin’. You wouldn’t want to tear any muscles, or get any cramps, trust me stretching is crucial. If you have access to a steam room or sauna, I would use them, to also warm your body temperature and get your mind into the zone. Complete each with intensity, stay at about 70-85% of your maximum heart rate. Rest between sets, maximum 25 seconds. -1 minute jump rope Just a smooth rhythm, not too fast not to slow, eventually if you can kick it up a notch, some one legged movement and foot skipping is a must try. Makes the jumping actually enjoyable. -10 Pullups After a while you’ll notice a trend of mine is doing pullups. Once you master them you will never not want to use them, they target your core upper muscles, and a brilliant staple to all workouts. Second set, if you can isometrically complete a pullup, do 4-6, otherwise complete the ten. -10 Forward Standing Lunges I star off with 10 each leg, no weight. Remember you need to keep your body stretched! These will get the blood flowing for some additional leg movement. Second set, use a dumbbell or plate of comfortable weight, hold out in front of your chest and spin it the direction of which leg your stepping forward and -20 Rep Curls For this I start off with a target minimum...

Balance

Balance.      To each selves, we have our own plans, goals, records, and guidance. Every mind has its own focus, insights, and core conscious. What we can control can have limits, but what we can do will be rewarded. Many examples can be made. Here are a few:      It’s almost simple as saying it’s similar to the black and white circle, yin-yang. You weigh the positives with the negative and find equilibrium. Say you have to work at 8 am. You decide to not eat breakfast, or make time to cook a meal. If you choose not to make breakfast, usually it takes longer to get into gear for the day. If you do decide to make time and eat, usually you would have a more productive start and feel better, like accomplishment.      So I think, and you may have thought as well, what if I can’t make the time, or there happens to be a possible late start. Guess. I would take some time maybe a day or to before, and prepare yourself. Write down what your are going to have, or have some accessible food (which should allow you to be content as you usually would be). Not just a granola bar, or a piece of fruit. Don’t make the accessible food option regular either, that defeats the purpose if getting into balance.      What I am getting at, the point, is schedule ahead if you need to make balance and ends meet. Even if it feels like a burden, after you compensate a few moments ahead of time, the outcome...
