So we hear a bunch of mumble jumble all the time about Carbs vs Fats vs Proteins, how much of this should I eat, or what carbs are really bad, how much protein should I have, etc etc. It can be a little overwhelming at times and a little discouraging if you’re not listening to the right sources. This week I have two simplifying guidelines that if you stick to, can make a big difference, and help you towards weight loss or fitness goals. I’m not saying this is the answer to it all, but just some simple guidelines that are easy to follow. I find that with my clients if we focus on one or two things at a time instead of a whole list of do's and don'ts, they are a lot more successful and less stressed! So if you don't know where to start, here a couple of tips you can start with today:

Happy Weekend Everyone! I'm going to be starting a weekly series of sharing some of my favorite product finds throughout the week every Friday! So lets cut right to the chase, here's my four favorites from this week:
1) Vive Juicery in Sugarhouse (1597 S 1100 E, Salt Lake City, UT 84105)
If you're looking for a refreshing little pick me up I highly recommend Vive Juicery. Its the cutest little juice shop and each one comes in an awesome little glass bottle. I went for the "Stella" which has Kale, Spinach, celery, cucumber, green apple, lemon, and lime. It was the most refreshing cleansing flavor! Fair warning, they are pricey.... But if you've every tried juicing yourself you know how much produce it takes to fill a small bottle. They have a menu of fruit juices, vegetable juices, almond milks, and detox packages. Its a must if your in the area!
2) Easy Dinners from Costco, like this amazing Kale and Red Chard Stir Fry Kit.
I've been working crazy hours this week and last thing I've wanted to do is slave away in the kitchen all night. This was a life saver this week. I added asparagus, zucchini, and mushrooms to the mix, steamed it all in a big pan with the lid on, poured over the sauce, and bam, I had a veggie filled delicious dinner.
3) This new Protein Powder from Gnarly, which also doubles as an appetite and weight management supplement with fat burning benefits, triple whammy! Lots of you ask what protein powder I use and I've recently found one that I love. Gnarly makes a very clean product using Whey protein from New Zealand grass fed Cattle, sweetened with stevia, plant-based digestive enzymes, pro and prebiotics to help with your digestive and protein absorption, no artificial coloring or sweeteners, GMO free, fat burning slimming blend, Gluten free, and a low glycemic index to keep your blood sugar from spiking. This is one of the best profiles I've seen in a protein powder and not too mention both the Chocolate and Vanilla taste amazing!

4) Ghee as a replacement for Butter
What is Ghee you may ask? Ghee is a form of butter made from grass-fed cows, and cooked longer and in a certain way that removes the harmful components that can cause inflammation, sensitivities and intolerances to some people with other dairy products. Ghee has a healthier make up of vitamin K2, beta carotene (which is why it’s so vibrant yellow), vitamin A and a better Omega-3 fatty acid ratio than other butter options. Stay tuned for a couple for recipes utilizing this fabulous ingredient.
And there you have it! Four fabulous favorites I've discovered this week and wanted to share. Enjoy! I'll be back with more next week!
