Eating healthy when you’re on the go is HARD. It’s so tempting to grab a cookie with your afternoon coffee or reach for a bag of chips to hold you over until dinner. The bad news is, the temptation to cave and eat something you might regret later is EVERYWHERE. The good news is, YOU can prevent this from happening! Having healthy snacks on hand (meaning with you and ready to go whenever hunger strikes) is key. It’s all about preparation here. When you know you’ll be out of the house for a while, throw one of these healthy alternatives in your bag to keep you satisfied and full from nutrient dense foods!
Being totally honest here, it actually took me a while to get into listening to podcasts on a regular basis. I gradually started listening to more and more motivational, self development podcasts around the same time that I started my own entrepreneurial journey with Protein Power Ball (about two years ago). There is truly something so awe-inspiring when the guests (or even hosts) of these podcasts share their stories of success, struggle, grit, and ingenuity.
If you’ve ever found yourself in “supplement lingo” wondering which ones are actually worth the time (and daily commitment!) you’ve come to the right place.

We finally made it...the end of the most difficult year any of us will probably face in our lifetime. Normally we would all be preparing for the New Year with countless resolutions while we think about all the extra-indulgent foods we just ate over the holidays. This year looks very different because the majority of the world is hoping for something we haven’t seen in a while- normalcy.
It’s time to deck the halls and with that means a barrage of rich, decadent and often unhealthy foods. Whatever holiday you celebrate, there are ways to enjoy your favorite traditional foods without tossing away your healthful eating habits. Don’t worry if sugar plums are dancing in your head. You can enjoy them as long as you practice some mindful eating and moderation.
Make your list and check it twice! Express your gratitude for the special people in your life by giving them thoughtful gifts for the wellbeing of their body, mind and spirit.
Your hectic day is thankfully over, and you can finally settle in for some relaxation and downtime. But, before you can even turn a page in your new book...here it comes...the late night snack attack. Even though eating late in the day can be troublesome for your metabolism and can also affect your sleep patterns, sometimes you just need a snack!

Vegan or eating primarily plant-based? The next question that usually follows goes something like this, “So, where do you get your protein?!” It’s not a problem! You can easily get all the protein you need from plant-based sources.
Working from home can be an opportunity to change your lifestyle for the better but, unfortunately, it is easy to fall into the trap of unhealthy and unproductive habits. By identifying and avoiding these pitfalls, you can find a positive work/life balance.
Halloween can be tricky. At every turn, kids are tempted by sugar-laden goodies and candies that can be hard to pass up. What's a parent to do? Don’t get spooked. There are plenty of ways to create fiendishly fun treats that are healthy too!
