I’m seriously stoked on the warm, wonderful weather we are having. Unfortunately, it does make for awkward tan-lines when you walk EVERYWHERE. I’ve got a legging tan-line, a shoe tan-line. A racer back tan-line and a budding shorts tan-line. That’s a lot of lines. Not super attractive but my body does appreciate the walks and the Vitamin D.

Have you seen this article? In a nutshell, it’s saying that doing a little burst of exercise DOES NOT make up for an entire day of sitting. Whether it be in the car, at work, or in front of the television… sitting is bad for you. Health experts (I use that term loosely) used to think that, regardless of the rest of your day, getting 30-60 mins of moderate-intense exercise was all you needed to be healthy. NOT TRUE. These new finding show that people need to be active ALL DAY LONG. Yup. All day. At least the equivalent of walking 4 miles a day.

Fortunately for me, I’ve been walking around 6-8 miles a day. And that doesn’t even include the times I’m just moving around my house cooking or cleaning, and it also doesn’t account for my usual hour or two of working out, be it yoga or Crossfit. I know not everyone has the time for such things, but try to move a little bit more in your day. Dance around during commercials. Take stairs. Park farther. These things may not give you six-pack abs or help you lose 15 lbs. but they will contribute to your overall health in the long run. Get out there and move your booty!

Also, eat your veggies! Preferably covered with Yum Sauce. This stuff goes great on anything! Salad, burgers, chicken, lettuce wraps…. enjoy!

Stopped by @lazyacresmarket_encinitas and grabbed this tonic to keep my immune system solid while my little guy fights a cold. I'm not gonna lie, it doesn't taste that good, but has some crazy good ingredients and so far I'm keeping all the germs from taking me down πŸ‘ŠπŸ» Not upset about my breakfast situation.
GF sourdough open faced breakfast sandwich and bone broth with all the immune boosting goodies. #goodonya #northcountysd #needonedowntown PREPARATION// One thing I never regret;
Taking time to meal prep for myself. It's so much easier to make healthy food choices and lose the stress over time spent in the kitchen when you're prepared! #mealpreppin #gingerorangepork #slowcookerftw If you didn't catch my live video yesterday about my grocery shopping (riveting... I know.), I gave the low down on why and how I make my own nut butter.
1. It's generally cheaper.
2. It tastes way better.
3. Easy to do in a vitamix or food processor. Just have patience because you're not making a smoothie, you're grinding nuts until they release their oils and smooth out.
Need another reason to make your own? 
4. Customization
This batch had a touch of vanilla and cinnamon and I can easily control the amount of saltiness.
You guyyyyysssss. It's so good and easy. Be like Nike and #justdoit
