It’s hard to believe but March is finally over! I know with everyone being confined at home because of COVID-19 it seems March has lasted forever, but I hope you are remaining safe and healthy away from this virus. I know I’m thankful I have Shakeology. No, it can’t protect you from the virus but it can feed your body a daily does of dense nutrition with all the vitamins and superfoods to help your body fight off any infections. I’ve been drinking it for 9 years and it’s greatly improved my health.

I know with all the gyms and fitness centers being closed and people being trapped at home that you have probably been really struggling with your fitness and diet. Well I have the perfect solution…

If you are not yet a Beachbody On Demand member, now is the perfect time to sign up. You can try it for free for 14 days, and get it as low as for $39 a quarter. It offers thousands of workouts you can do right from home. There are tons of programs that don’t even require any equipment. You can try many of the workouts completely for free without a membership, just read the article below.

Also Beachbody has different nutrition diet programs online that can definitely help you dial in your meal planning and lose weight. They are the Ultimate Portion Fix and 2B Mindset. These can be done with or without the Beachbody On Demand workouts.

The best deal right now is the new 10 Rounds boxing program by Joel Freeman which comes out on April 6th. I can offer you a big discount on the new 10 Rounds challenge pack this month that comes with or without Shakeology. Are you interested? If so, contact me.

Do’s and Don’ts of Healthy Snacking

Snacking on a hard-boiled egg or a handful of almonds can be an easy way to stave off hunger and add some extra protein into your diet.

But what happens when you’re tempted to reach for something way less virtuous, like a pint of salted caramel ice cream? These tips can help you handle your cravings and eat more mindfully.

DO ask yourself why you’re snacking

Are you eating because you’re bored or stressed? Are you grabbing a sugary latte on your morning commute because that’s what you always do? Make sure you’re not just giving in to mindless snack habits.

DON’T wait until you’re absolutely ravenous

“Hunger drives us to make impulsive choices based on what is most convenient, not what is most healthy,” Greenfield says.

DO slow down

It takes time for your body to register fullness, so look for snacks you can’t gobble down too quickly.
“Foods like apples and orange take work to eat — peeling them and eating around the core — which will allow the satiety to catch up,” says Scott Schreiber, D.C., L.D.N., C.N.S., a chiropractic physician and licensed dietitian/nutritionist in Delaware.

DON’T keep junk in stock

Give your willpower a break. If there’s a snack you have a hard time resisting, resist it once — at the grocery store! — rather than having to resist it every time you walk past the fridge or pantry.

Avoid These Snacking Mistakes

When you’re scoping out snack ideas for your meal plan, keep in mind that certain snacks aren’t really as healthy as they sound. Here are a few sneaky ones to watch out for:

  • “Fat-free” or “sugar- free” snacks. For starters, there’s no need to cut fat from your diet. And as Greenfield notes, “usually when fat is removed, it’s replaced with sugar” or other additives that aren’t doing your body any favors. Meanwhile, sugar-free snacks are usually loaded with artificial sweeteners, which have been linked to weight gain, cautions Dr. Schreiber.
  • 100-calorie snack packs. The built-in portion control can be helpful if you’re seriously craving chips, crackers, or candy. But it’s still processed food, so don’t make these your daily go-to snack. “It’s better to get high-quality foods that will fill you up, rather than low-calorie foods filled with sugar and hydrogenated oils,” Greenfield says.
  • Unlimited healthy foods. Even the healthiest snacks can sabotage your diet if you don’t pay attention to portions — so rather than sitting down with a bowl of veggies and a tub of hummus, plate a serving so you don’t accidentally consume a few hundred extra calories.

Healthy Snack Ideas

From Thai hummus to bell pepper nachos, here’s some healthy-snack inspiration:

Are You Ready to Go 10 Rounds? 

New At-Home Boxing Workout Available for VIP Early Access April 6!

Boxing is one of the best TOTAL-body workouts you can do, and super trainer Joel Freeman is bringing 10 Rounds to Beachbody on Demand in this month!

10 Rounds offers will be available with a $20 savings off Challenge & Completion Packs to offer you the best value, and VIP Early Access will be available to everyone on April 6th! Message me now and I will send you a purchase link when it becomes available!

In 10 Rounds, Joel shows you how every single punch actually begins at your feet, burns up through your hips, intensifies as you torque your core, and explodes all the way through your fists. It’s intense, but it’s also a lot of fun.

This program is built around the simple, precise, and effective principles of boxing — without the impact. Joel leads you through 3 days of boxing training and 2 days of strength-building workouts with weights that will help you get a true, full-body transformation.

You won’t be hitting a heavy bag or sparring partner. Instead, you’ll be doing it the way boxers spend the bulk of their training time — shadowboxing.

The boxing workouts are broken up into 10 rounds, 3 minutes each. You’ll focus on punching combinations and footwork that will progress over the 6 weeks. You can also crank up the burn by using resistance loops on your legs to get your stance as strong as possible.

I’m excited to do this workout with my accountability group! Join us and shadow box your way to a lean and shredded physique with 10 Rounds!

Creamy Mashed Cauliflower

Serves 4

This creamy cauliflower mash makes a perfect low-carb stand-in for mashed potatoes. Use mashed cauliflower and mix in garlic, buttermilk and a touch of butter to create a flavorful side dish that has about one-quarter of the calories of typical mashed potatoes.

No buttermilk? You can use buttermilk powder prepared according to package directions, or make “sour milk”: mix 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup milk.

  • 8 cups bite-size cauliflower florets (about 1 head)
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled  
  • ⅓ cup nonfat buttermilk (see tip, above)
  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided  
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Snipped fresh chives for garnish, optional

Place cauliflower florets and garlic in a steamer basket over boiling water, cover and steam until very tender, 12 to 15 minutes. (Alternatively, place florets and garlic in a microwave-safe bowl with 1/4 cup water, cover and microwave on High for 3 to 5 minutes.)

Place the cooked cauliflower and garlic in a food processor. Add buttermilk, 2 teaspoons oil, butter, salt and pepper; pulse several times, then process until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a serving bowl. Drizzle with the remaining 2 teaspoons oil and garnish with chives, if desired. Serve hot. Source:

Coconut Macaroon Shakeology

If you like coconut, then you probably LOVE macaroons. This Coconut Macaroon Shakeology is the answer to your cravings — without heaps of sugar.

Coconut extract can usually be found in the baking section of your local grocery store. Otherwise, you can buy it at baking supply stores. You could also substitute vanilla extract or almond extract instead; or alternatively, you could simply leave it out altogether.
Shaving a bit of dark chocolate on top of your drink makes it extra indulgent. If you’re fancying a different garnish, a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg would pair well.

  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk beverage
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 scoop Vanilla Shakeology
  • ½ tsp. pure coconut extract (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp. shaved dark chocolate (optional)

Place coconut milk, ice, Shakeology, extract (if desired), and coconut in blender; cover. Blend until smooth. Garnish with chocolate if desired.
