10 Day Health Challenge

What’s in Season?

Relish in the bounty of spring with seasonal, local produce and a plethora of recipes that will keep you busy all season long.

After Haley’s lecture series with the San Rafael Fire Department, both myself and the members of the department are more conscious of our nutritional choices. While on duty our energy level and mental sharpness is critical to our job performance. Haley has taught us how to make healthier choices in our food and recipes selections to support us physically and mentally. It’s not uncommon to hear department members say “Haley wouldn’t approve of that.”  She has changed the way we look at nutrition.

I had been struggling with how to get my husband and myself to consistently eat a more healthful diet. Working with Haley was great because she helped us understand what we were eating, how it was affecting our health and fitness goals and what changes we could make to most effectively meet those goals. In just a few weeks, Haley guided us through those changes and we noticed differences immediately.

Haley was really able to help me come up with a wide variety of ideas for healthy eating, incorporating greens and other necessary nutrients into my everyday diet with more ease: ideas that made day-to-day eating easier, efficient, and even cost-effective. Taking care of yourself isn’t always going to be quick and efficient, the knowledge that Haley has the ability to share can make that process easier, and more fun!

Haley is so knowledgeable and still there are no stupid questions with her. I could come to her with really basic or very technical questions and she always took the time to make sure I got my answer and learned something useful. Plus, as a somewhat recent vegetarian, she guided me through a meal plan that not only helped me get the protein I needed but keep my intake of empty carbs down.

Raw Lemon Coconut Macaroons

These little guys are great pre, during, and post-workout, which is why I’ve been sampling them at the gym you see in the background. I’ve been promoting my online program, Nutrition Boot Camp, at Five Points Fitness in Corte Madera, and I’m getting a lot of questions about coconut. “How much fat is in them?” “What’s all the fuss about coconut?” What IS the big deal with coconut? It’s high in fiber- 1/4 cup of shredded coconut has over 13 g of fiber! Compare that to 1/4 cup of oatmeal (2.5 g) and cooked chickpeas (3 g). Fiber is important for digestive health and elimination of toxins from the body. Some research suggests coconut has antiviral and antibacterial qualities. This is part of the reason coconut has been used in traditional medicine for many years. Coconut oil is a source of healthy fats. Composed of predominantly medium chain fatty acids, the fat in coconut oil does not have a negative effect on cholesterol and can help protect against heart disease. Plus, it’s the kind of fat that gives you lasting, sustainable energy and has positive effects on endurance. It’s rich in many vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, folate, potassium, iron, phosphorous and magnesium.   Raw Lemon Coconut Macaroons Ingredients:  Makes about 12-14 1-inch balls 1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut 1/3 cup almond meal 2 Tbs. honey 2 1/2 tsp. coconut oil 3 dates, pitted 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract 1 tsp. lemon zest or lemon extract 1/2 tsp. fresh lemon juice 1/8 tsp. sea salt Directions: Combine everything together in a food processor and mix until fully incorporated.

Overnight Protein Porridge

We just wrapped up our Live 10 Day Health Challenge winter launch and WOW what a success! We had great feedback and people participating from all over the world. You can click here to see a few testimonials. While we’re busy putting the finishing touches on the SPRING menu, I wanted to share one of my favorite easy breakfast recipes. Mornings can be hectic and sometimes we only have enough time to grab n’ go on our way out the door, am I right? This easy Overnight Protein Porridge recipe, adapted from Claudine at Cooking with Claudine, taste like an oatmeal raisin cookie but is actually good for you. At the 10 Day Health Challenge, Quick breakfasts are what we’re good at. Just ask our past Challengers: “OMG the Instant Mason Jar Oats are sooooooo good, I’m hooked!” (that’s a real quote by the way). This recipe also checks all the healthy breakfast boxes: •    Fast & easy •    Full of nutrients and healthy fats •    Gluten-free, dairy-free, & sugar-free •    Whole food ingredients •    Complete plant-based protein •    Delicious •    Inexpensive Plus, you can prepare a weeks worth of Overnight Protein Porridge in individual jars so all you have to do is pour in your milk of choice the night before. Mine’s already sitting in the fridge, ready for tomorrow morning.   Ingredients: 2 Tbs. whole oats 2 Tbs. chia seeds 2 Tbs. hemp hearts 1 Tbs. raw buckwheat groats 1 Tbs. raisins or currants 1 tsp. ground cinnamon 1-2 Tbs. protein powder like this one or this one 1/2 cup non-dairy milk of your choice 1/2... read more

Za’atar Toasted Almonds and Maple Cashew Dates

Za’atar Toasted Almonds My clients from Pilates ProWorks are so hard core. This weekend I taught a special hour and a half Holiday Boot Camp and I ended up kicking my own ass too (ladies, anyone’s hamstrings as sore as mine?). Because of their awesomeness, I wanted to share a few nutrient-dense, high-protein snacks- AND we all needed a calorie replacement after our workout. By the way, both of these recipes make great hostess gifts or as an addition to a holiday gift basket: unique, tasty, and healthy bite-size treats. What’s za’atar?  It’s an interesting Middle Eastern herb blend that commonly contains oregano, thyme, sumac, salt, and sesame seeds. You can make your own mixture with a mortar and pestle, but I got a small box from Whole Foods and I’m sure you could find it from other grocery stores. I’m clean out, however, because I’ve used it in chicken marinade, sprinkled it atop roasted squash and homemade popcorn, and added it to a Greek yogurt dip. Ingredients: 3 cups raw almonds 1 egg white 2 tsp. za’atar seasoning 2 tsp. sea salt Zest of 1/2 lemon 1 Tbs. olive oil Directions: 1) Preheat oven to 350 2) Whip egg white until it becomes frothy, then add za’atar and sea salt. Add the almonds and combine thoroughly. 3) Spread almonds evenly on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Bake for about 15 minutes, then remove from heat, add olive oil, stir, and bake for 5 more minutes (or until they are fragrant and toasted). 4) Remove from oven and immediately zest lemon over hot almonds. Stir and let cool.  Maple Cashew... read more
