How is it already May?!? 

This month, let's focus on detoxing and getting healthier! 
I'm not talking about a detox diet - that is something that is a fleeting moment, a temporary "fix" that is not going to solve any underlying health issues or support long-term weight-loss goals. 
We need to breathe in the new Spring air and cleanse our minds and our bodies to be the best versions of ourselves!

10 Ways to Detox Your Body with a Clean Eating Lifestyle (not a detox diet!) 

Whether through the air we breathe, cleaning products we use, or the food we eat, we come into both internal and external toxins and pollutants every day. Fortunately, our body works daily to detoxify these toxins thanks to the work of the liver, kidneys, intestines, blood, skin, lungs, and lymphatic system.

But, these organs can become bogged down from time to time due to dehydration, lack of exercise, poor food choices, constipation, lack of sleep, excessive alcohol consumption, exposure to chemicals, or medications. This is why it is so beneficial to follow a Clean Eating lifestyle!

While following the Clean Eating lifestyle, we are much less likely to accumulate a heavy toxic burden in our bodies making an extreme detox or cleanse unnecessary for most.

By enjoying Clean foods and practicing healthy lifestyle choices, we can tailor the Clean Eating lifestyle to naturally boost our body's ability to detox. The transitions of the seasons (think Spring and Autumn) are excellent times to detoxify and reset.


The 22 Best Strength Exercises for 2022 

What if I told you that focusing on one area of fitness this year will have the biggest impact on your overall results?

It will help you lose weight and burn fat. It will help you build muscle and improve your overall health. It will take your workouts and fitness to a new level. It will reduce injuries, aches, and pains. It will literally reverse the aging process!

In 2022 we want you to simply focus on getting stronger. 

I am here to make getting into the best shape of your life easier and it all starts with improving your strength.

Think of your overall fitness as a house. You want the biggest and nicest fitness house in 2022 and we're going to build it. 

It all starts with your strength!

Your overall strength is the foundation of that house. Without that foundation, it doesn't matter how big your house is, it will fail. In fitness terms, this means you won't reach your goals or potential and/or worse, get injured.

With a strong foundation of strength, everything else fitness-related only gets better.

Your running improves. Your yoga improves. Your cardio improves. Your workout intensity improves. 


You're simply able to do more during your workouts and exercise with greater intensity, leading to better results for you.

To get you started, the folks at Dynamic Strength & Conditioning created a list of the 22 best strength exercises for 2022 along with a step-by-step guide on how to complete each movement. Enjoy!


Prevent Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis and the broken bones it can cause are not part of normal aging. There is a lot you can do to protect your bones throughout your life. You’re never too young or too old to improve the health of your bones. Osteoporosis prevention should begin in childhood. But it shouldn’t stop there. Whatever your age, the habits you adopt now can affect your bone health for the rest of your life. Now is the time to take action.

What can you do to protect your bones?

  • Get enough calcium and vitamin D and eat a well-balanced diet.
  • Engage in regular exercise.
  • Eat foods that are good for bone health, such as fruits and vegetables.
  • Avoid smoking and limit alcohol to 2-3 drinks per day.

Eat Your Protein! 

Counting macronutrients — protein, fat, and carbs — may not be totally mainstream just yet, but people are starting to pay more attention to it. And while some diets want you to limit carbs or fat, nearly every eating program — from the keto diet and Mediterranean diet to Whole30 and the DASH diet — gives the green light to high-protein foods. Why?

"Amino acids, the organic molecules that makeup protein, are essentially the building blocks of life," says Abby Olson, R.D., owner of Encompass Nutrition in St. Paul, MN. "Unlike carbohydrates and fat, your body doesn't store extra amino acids, and they need to be consumed daily."

In other words, if you fall short on your recommended intake of high-protein foods, your internal and external organs will suffer.

"You need protein to make hair, blood, enzymes, and so much more," explains Brooke Alpert, R.D., author of The Diet Detox. "The recommended daily allowance is 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight, so a 130-pound woman would need at least 48 grams of protein. In my practice, I've found those numbers to be a bit modest [so] instead of focusing on grams, I simply ask my clients to make sure there is one serving of protein at every single meal."

Your waistline can also suffer if you don't regularly eat high-protein foods each day. Science shows a connection between a healthy dietary protein intake and lower weight, more lean body mass, better cholesterol, a healthier waist-to-hip ratio, and lower blood pressure.

Hit your quota with this list of dietitian-approved high-protein foods that fit within any eating style.
