health = wealth
Things just FEEL better when you're treating your body right. At least that's my M.O.
I notice a big difference in the way that my body feels after eating well, particularly. When I was working from an office that had a snack machine, I would invest in a GIANT, soy-based protein bar everyday and about 3 bags of Pirate Booty. I was hungry, and even these snacks didn't satiate me. 700+ calories later, and I felt tired, groggy, and still hungry.
I'm no nutritionist, but I've gotten good at knowing what works for ME and my own body. One thing I know for sure is that when I feed myself high-quality (aka not processed), mostly plant-based foods; I feel amazing. I sleep better. I have more energy throughout my days. My skin glows. My nails and hair grow like weeds. I don't carry excess water weight and feel bloated.
It all SOUNDS great right?
I am committed to bringing you recipes + daily inspirations, along with the instructors here at Cycle Fitness who will also be contributing their own material.
