Gluten-free, Paleo, and Primal Cinco de Mayo Recipes

Published: (Updated: ) in Health News by .

A lot of people use Cinco de Mayo as an excuse to hit up their favorite taco shop and kick back with a margarita, completely unaware of the historical significance. Did you know that May 5th marks the anniversary of the day that Mexico drove out French military in 1862? Now you know why you’re clinking your salt-rimmed glasses and piling on the guacamole. While there’s nothing wrong with a meal of Mexican food, it might be tough to stick with your eating style if you’re picking up takeout. Here are 6 Mexican-inspired recipes that you can whip up on May 5th, whether you’re following a gluten-free, paleo, or Primal lifestyle. Shrimp and Cauliflower Rice Bowls Recipe An artfully arranged rice bowl is a hearty meal that’s packed with a variety of colors, flavors, textures, and even temperatures. The thing is, the good stuff usually sits on top of a packed bed of rice, which could push your carbs over the edge if you’re trying to keep them low. Riced cauliflower is an easy substitute that creates just as satisfying a bowl as the real thing. While it looks like a lot of effort, this shrimp and cauli-rice bowl recipe comes together in just a few minutes. Get the recipe here. Keto Burrito Recipe Everyone loves a good burrito. They’re hearty, filling, and you can stuff them with whatever you’re in the mood to eat. Wrap them up, and they make a convenient and flavorful meal on the go. Can you have burritos when you’re keto, though? When you’re keeping your carbs low, good burritos can seem out of reach. Traditional flour tortillas send your carb counts through the roof, and inflammatory grains drain you of all of your energy. Other store-bought tortilla options are either just as carby, they have questionable ingredients, or they simply just don’t hold up. We found a way. This keto burrito recipe has all of the flavor you’re looking for, without the carb-loaded carrying case. Instead, we use a thin, crepe-like egg pancake that compliments any burrito ingredient combination you can dream up. Get the recipe here.    Egg Tacos with Avocado and Lime Recipe These aren’t fried eggs, nor are they scrambled. The eggs in these tacos are just slightly set, with a warm, runny yolk that is barely scrambled into the whites. Slide one of these gently cooked eggs into a warm tortilla, top with cool avocado and lime and slices of jalapeno and you’ve got the perfect breakfast taco. Although these egg tacos are delicious for dinner, too. Get the recipe here.  Sheet Pan Steak Fajitas Recipe The whole point of sheet pan meals is to make life easier by delivering a flavorful, balanced meal to your table with very little cooking and cleanup involved. These sheet pan steak fajitas deliver on all counts. Strips of steak, bell pepper and onions served with avocado and salsa is a delicious mix of protein, colorful vegetables and healthy fat. Everything cooks together at … Continue reading “Gluten-free, Paleo, and Primal Cinco de Mayo Recipes”

“Mark,
Your timing is impeccable. This week the performance period (week 14) of training for IRON MAN CDA began. Saturday ended with me in the back of an ambulance after a long bike/run day. I passed out, hit my head on the flagstones and was out cold for several minutes. Several tests indicate I have a low blood pressure condition following strenuous endurance activity. I had my pity party and I am now looking for my next adventure. I have several IM’s and I love Triathlon with a passion.ng outward brain expansion in the absence of constraining chewing muscles bound to the sagittal crests) … made us who we are today.”

COVID-19 vaccines and the LGBTQ+ community

Published: (Updated: ) in Health News by .

A history of discrimination in multiple settings, including health care, may make some people who identify as LGBTQ+ hesitant to get a COVID-19 vaccine, even though the virus has disproportionately harmed this community. If you’re struggling to make a decision, this may help you consider benefits and risks.

7 Strategies for Making Change Less Stressful

Published: (Updated: ) in Health News by .

Whenever I meet with a new client, I can feel their apprehension about making any lifestyle changes within the first few minutes – especially once we start talking about food . It’s the worry about never being able to have their favorite foods again. The fear of not being able to stick with it. The judgement from friends and family, who, in their opinion, are going to alienate them from social functions, happy hours, and dinner parties (you know, once those are in full swing again). The emotions and ‘what ifs’ that come up for some people can seriously derail them from a life they love and completely deserve. Just the idea of change becomes such a roadblock that they’d rather stay stuck in their current patterns than take steps toward something different. Sound familiar? If so, stick around because I’m going to unpack why change is so stressful and tangible steps you can take to make it easier. Why Is Change So Hard? Your brain likes to keep you safe — that’s one of its very important jobs. It loves keeping you safely tucked inside your comfort zone where everything is nice and predictable. Why? Because when you experience change, your brain interprets it as a threat, so any action you attempt to take that’s outside your comfort zone will be sabotaged because of your basic human needs for survival and certainty. Unfortunately, resisting change, even something that’s good for your health and wellbeing, is in your nature. Psychologist and creator of the Transtheoretical Model of Change (or TTM), James Prochaska says we resist change, not because of the change itself, but our perception of change. It’s that deep down threat to our safety and security.   Is It a Setback or Progress? Altering your behaviours takes time and often involves backtracking, which may feel like a setback, but it’s not. You’re still moving forward. That’s because change isn’t a one-time event. It’s actually a series of non-linear events that happen over time, meaning you go back and forth between the stages, working through them until the change becomes fully established and there’s limited chance of you going back to your old ways. Check out the Transtheoretical Model Stages of Change to see what I mean: In the Pre-Contemplation Stage… You want to make a change, but you have no conscious intention of doing it. While this may make you feel like you’re not onboard, it’s a good sign. And it’s the first step in the process. In the Contemplation Stage…. You begin to have an internal debate about making a change and might have more insight on why it’s important to you. In the Preparation Stage… You’re weighing the consequences of your change and may take a small step toward it. If you want to change your diet, you might join the Keto Reset group on Facebook or research paleo recipes online. In the Action Stage… This is where you go from planning to doing. You’re engaging in online … Continue reading “7 Strategies for Making Change Less Stressful”

In many cases, women with PCOS have skin and hair issues such as acne, hair loss, or excessive hair growth in places where they normally do not have hair.
