The "NOW" best thing in nutrition are nature's power packed tiny seeds. Seeds like flax seeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds and pumpkin seeds are getting lots of hype, and they should. They have been coined "super seeds" and this is exactly what they are. I'm thrilled this category of food is rapidly expanding. Nutrient-dense and packed with disease fighting minerals and enzymes, seeds can be used in pretty much any recipe and enjoyed alone.
Good things really do come in small packages so start making seeds become a staple in your healthy panty.!

#hempspotting #veganuary2015 #30dayhempchallenge #bevegan … What was once thought of as a lifestyle designated for earth-loving hippies, veganism has hit the mainstream market in full force from doctor recommendations to pro athletes and celebrities touting the benefits. There is a wealth of education showing that a whole-food plant-based diet can help prevent heart disease and other illnesses, including diabetes, hypertension, obesity, anxiety and even sexual dysfunction. A plant-based diet is rapidly growing within sport nutrition because it’s ability to improve athletic performance due to the nature of how easy plant foods are to digest and assimilate.
As a long time vegan, vegan athlete, animal rights activist and vegan coach, I’m thrilled to hear about Veganuary and their support of Veganism. I can't speak highly enough about the motivating community they have built bringing like minds together. They offer a wealth of education, support, tools and recipes in a really fun and motivating environment. They help anyone who has thought about trying vegan experience it with ease for the month of January, a time for resolutions and new beginnings.

Ready or not, here I come! That’s the feeling I get as soon as I lace up my running shoes every morning. I’m geared up to take on the world. As a vegan athlete, avid runner and outdoor endurance junkie, I sweat. Which brings me to the reason I’m writing this article, have you ever heard of the Handana? After you read this, I assure you that you will want one! For anyone that is active and sweats, this is a must have.
I took the Handana out for it’s first test on a 10-mile Run and was very impressed. One of my favorite quotes from Dr. Seuss is: “Why fit in when you were born to stand out?” That’s what came to mind when I put on my Handana for this first run. Basically it’s built around the natural body behavior of removing sweat from our face and eyes when we are in the moment of our adventure. It’s designed to serve a similar purpose as wrapping a bandana around your hand to wipe sweat away from your eyes, neck and forehead. I have never thought that something so simple would be so incredible. I’ve been waiting for this my entire running career!
BEVEGAN® Nutrition Tips
Nutritionally, there are a few things to plan for before you head out the door and when you return home.
Consider the following:
1. How you fuel yourself before & after your run
2. Timing of your nourishment
3. Eating the right types of essential nutrients
An easy way to consume protein after your run is in a liquid form like a smoothie. Refueling with liquids is great because it requires less digestive energy (energy you need for quicker recovery).
Lastly, eat a larger meal about two hours after your run and be sure it is full of essential fatty acids, complex carbohydrates and complete proteins. This will gear up your body so it’s ready to give it everything you've got during your next run.
After a tough and/or long workout, you should begin hydrating within the first 10-15 minutes after stopping. Even if it was cold or freezing outside, you still sweat a significant amount and need to replace fluid loss. Plain water is sufficient for shorter workouts but endurance drinks become more important as workouts get longer. Opt for healthy electrolyte solutions and drink around 16-20oz. Here are two to try at home:
