FUEL YOUR WORKOUTS

I use after those really hard workouts to help my muscles recover. It really does help to reduce muscle soreness and growth. There is a whole performance package that includes samples of pre and post workout mixes, proteins, and recovery. I recommend adding these to your workout routine.

Mac and Cheese

4 tsp of organic butter

2 tbsp of flour

1 cup skim milk

1 cup shredded cheese of your choice

4-6 cups of whole wheat macaroni

2 -3 pre-cooked sliced chicken breasts

1 head of broccoli steamed

Cook pasta according to package. Melt the butter in skillet. Before completely melted, whisk in the flour slowly for 1-2 mins. Slowly whisk in the milk for 1-2 mins until the mixture begins to thicken. Whisk in the shredded cheese until you have a creamy mixture. Add broccoli and chicken to pasta stirring for 1-2 mins and then drain. Add the cheese sauce to the pasta, broccoli, and chicken. Add a pinch of parsley to the top. 1 serving = cup, (.5 green, 1 blue, red, and yellow)

Fitness Trackers

Not all athletes are made the same, so neither should your fitness tracker. A fitness tracker like FitBit, Jawbone, or Apple Watch, is important because it helps give a more accurate picture of the calories you expend. Add that with a meal tracker and calculate your calorie deficit to subtract the pounds.
