Why small changes work better!

Why small changes work better!

However, this takes a tremendous amount of willpower to make large changes in short periods of time, in turn, decreasing the chance the desired change sticks over time. This is synonymous with “fad” diets, where a person attempts to sustain a high level of will power by eating very strict (to an unrealistic point usually) diet only to come crashing down and ultimate off the diet. This typically results in people eating more bad food than they originally were before choosing to start the very strict diet. We would rather see to you take a balanced and holistic approach to your diet.

Health Benefits of Safflower Oil

The Benefits or Safflower Oil

Highly regarded as a great source of essential fatty acids, Safflower oil has many positives we can all benefit from. Mostly comprised from omega 6 fatty acids, it also contains a small amount of CLA (conjugated Linoleic acid). There are two types of Safflower oil; high-oleic and high-Linoleic.

madness post workout smoothie

Strawberry-Banana “Madness” Smoothie

The Shake below is technically more designed as a pre or post exercise shake. The reason for this is because it’s very simple in terms of ingredients but mainly because it has carbs, protein and low fat which are ideal for post workout and even pre workout. My pro tip here would be if you are using this as a pre workout shake, using the almond or flax milk is a good idea because it gives you a little bit of fat in this smoothie. If you don’t want to use either of those milks, you can use water and add 1 Teaspoon to up to 1 tablespoon of Almond or Peanut Butter for a little extra fat in the pre workout smoothie or if you are using it as a meal replacement.
