As promised, here is the recipe for “Bulletproof Coffee”, I start every single one of my mornings with this coffee. The recipe comes from the Bulletproof Diet book by Dave Asprey. His diet focuses primarily on eating high fat, it involves intermittent fasting and putting your body in a “fat-burning” mode, otherwise known as ketosis. I will be posting more about this book and its philosophy in the near future.
I know it’s been a while but now that I’ve gotten back into the swing of things as I’m home for the summer, I’m aiming to post at least every two weeks and hopefully every week…I’ve got a few new ideas in mind for the blog involving some possible re-designing, so stay tuned and don’t give up on me! (:
In the meantime, I wanted to talk about my workout routine (since I’ve been home) and how I train. Read more to find out!
As a busy student and health & fitness nut, I’m always looking for the best on the go, high-protein snack and well ladies and gentlemen, I may just have found it. I was recently delighted with the opportunity to sample Pure and Primal protein energy bars which happen to be GMO-free, gluten-free and vegan.
It’s evident that our environment plays a key role in our eating habits whether we realize it or not. At home, you eat what’s served for dinner. When you go out you choose what you want to eat at the restaurant. Well what about at school?
Having recently started university in the fall and being the health conscious eater that I am, this posed somewhat of a challenge. Not only did I have to adjust to my new environment but I also had to alter my eating habits of course. With this came various concerns, the main one being the dreadful “freshman fifteen”. In case you’re unfamiliar with this term, it is used to describe the weight gained by first year students when they move into residence at university. Many of my peers were equally as concerned with this idea. I quickly realized however, that although your environment can change, you’re eating habits don’t have to.
You’re healthy habits are completely in your control and can follow you anywhere you go. Yes, it is true that not everything you once had available to you will remain the same but this is where flexibility comes in. Humans are very adaptable beings and in the grand scheme of things, I’ve realized that adapting to a university environment, although difficult is not as daunting as it may seem. By keeping your healthy habits in check, the transition is even easier as this is one aspect of your life that can remain the same. Maintaining this consistent aspect of your life is exciting and reassuring. It leaves you more time to focus on your studies and the social aspects of university.
Think about it!
