Becca’s Fab Five- January Edition

It’s no surprise that I am a health junkie…. food, movement, stress reduction, sleep, hormones, brain chemistry, gut health…. you name it. I LOVE the Human Body with all of it’s mysteries and intricacies. New products and science are always coming down the pipe and it’s hard to know what to read, where to spend […]

Exercising with Kids: A Quick How to Guide Pt 2

In Part 1, I lined up some basics on exercising with kids and gave you my thoughts on the role of exercise in a family. While it’s important to have a general understanding of your philosophy and a basic idea of how it “should” go, the reality is that you want a workout and you’d […]

Veggie Tots

We have our produce box delivered every Thursday to the gym. It’s like Christmas to open it up and see all the beautiful fruits and veggies and herbs! We were looking to mix it up a bit and the boys are definitely at an age where hand-held foods are just so realistic. A client shared […]

Say Good-bye to Stroller Woes

Many professionals in my field of Human Movement frown upon using strollers with kids. They point out that while you exercise, you encourage your kids to sit… and in the worst possible position imaginable, too. I get all of that. But I would argue that losing my sanity would be far more detrimental to my […]

Exercising with Kids: A Quick How to Guide Pt 1

When I give talks and meet with potential clients (or even just run into someone in the grocery store), people give me all sorts of excuses why they just can’t exercise right now. 99% of the time the excuse they give me for why they can’t is actually a reason why they should, and one […]

Nurtured By Nature- A Breakfast Hike

We are continuously trying to find more and more ways to reconnect with the world around us and step outside of the confines of modern technology. The benefits of time in Nature– you know that thing we did all day, every day for the majority of human existence– are undeniable. If you just close your […]

Oat Balls (aka Cookie Balls)

These Oat Balls are a great snack or quick breakfast that are popular in my house. We don’t eat a ton of grains but we all seem to handle oats well and these “Cookie Balls” (as Colt calls them) are incredibly satisfying. Ingredients: 1.5 C Old Fashioned Oats 1/2 C Vanilla Whey Protein (2 scoops) […]

Kids Cook: Chia Pudding

Feeding kids can be hard… Don’t Battle, OUTSMART! Lately, Colt has been exerting his opinion (and seeming power) more frequently at the dinner table… and the lunch table… and the breakfast table. He loves allllll sorts of foods but has realized that my sole purpose in life is to nourish him and his sole purpose […]

Food Upgrade: Taco Tuesday

Taco Tuesday is always a popular meal! There are a ton of ways we can make this meal so much healthier and still a favorite, too. Choose your Taco meat wisely! Ground Beef is a fatty meat (at least the stuff that tastes good!). Go for organic and/or Grassfed. Hint: Sam’s club has a 2 […]
