It’s always the best hanging out with the kids! Everything from cooking together, hearing how school and social life is going, training and even creating together! We always use the main ingredient that I learned from my Mom & brother George- make it FUN
This is a great snack or even pre workout meal. In a bed of greens and berries I serve up some awesome home made hummus! The berries and beats are high in minerals vitamins & antitoxins! Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are a type of legume that is full of protein, fiber, and complex carbohydrates!
In these challenging times I wanted to take time and thank you all for your support! I am positive that we as a race will get through this. I felt and feel that it is very important to acknowledge my appreciation for the enthusiasm and energy I get from my loved ones & clients! If you have someone special who picks you up & boosts your energy- let them know!
A lot of people wonder if it’s possible to build muscle on a plant based diet. Many experts still insist that you need to build muscle with red meat, poultry ( chicken/ turkey) & fish.
I began delving into plant based eating 10 years ago. Whenever I had to get in top shape I would eliminate red meat & poultry from my diet and stick to fish. Then I asked myself “What protein source is lighter than fish?” Egg whites, beans & lentils! I got more definition but more importantly my recovery and endurance improved DRASTICALLY. Many “experts” say you need meet for strength ( you actually need carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals & fats for strength) I noticed absolutely no decrease whatsoever in muscle mass or strength.
So if you’re following a plant based diet you have nothing to worry about as long as you read up and be creative in the kitchen! You can enjoy great tasting meals and achieve fantastic results at the gym!
We’re doing our best to stay healthy and strong during these challenging times!

I was especially happy that my beautiful daughter helped me lead the workout! Amani has helped me ever since she was a little girl and always brings sunshine wherever she goes!
Today’s meal prep was black quinoa, red beans sautéed in garlic,black pepper, olive oil,& yellow curry ( with an assortment of greens.
I mixed a shake with hemp protein, coconut oil & milk, peanut butter & blueberries! I divided that into two snacks!
