One of the paradoxes of owning and operating a fitness business is that you often times don’t have time to focus on your own health. Crazy, I know.
But as every business owner knows, your day is so over-scheduled and you’re constantly on the go or solving problems that emerge from out of nowhere, that you just settle for grabbing food on the go or eating what’s most convenient and easy to shove in your mouth.
I recently found a new food blog that I love: Sara Adler’s www.simplyrealthealth.com
You can check out the Simply Real Health cookbook ($39.95) as well.
I love the philosophy behind what Sara Adler is all about—making healthy eating easy, simple and a part of your life that you do without thinking about it. Adler is all about making the commitment to health and then making good choices to get there. She is about community and inviting your friends and family to help you. The recipes are great, flavorful and pretty easy. Since you are eating “real” food, everything tastes amazing, you eat more of a variety of foods. I’m actually looking forward to cooking now. And you don’t have to give up the occasional cocktail. Bonus!
Since all of the recipes in Simply Real Health are gluten-free—and I did love eating my weight in pasta—I invested in a vegetable spiralizer. It’s so fun and easy to use.
OXO Good Grips 3-Blade Spiralizer with StrongHold Suction ($39.95): The suction holds the device to your counter, which is really handy because it does take some muscle to make these veggie noodles.
This is my favorite veggie noodle recipe from Pinch of Yum blog, Creamy Spinach Sweet Potato Noodles with Cashew Sauce. The sauce is so good—the cashews make this amazing cream sauce. Any leftovers keep well for lunch the next day. You’re welcome!
I’m still working on my topics for next week, so if you have any suggestions or need help with a specific area of your business, let me know and I’ll incorporate it into my next posts.
Until then, stay on your toes!
