Instead of grabbing whatever is in sight or ordering takeout on the way home, a little planning – and a lot of protein – will go a long way. RelatedNo Gym, No Problem!

We are big fans of chia over here.

They’ve also got serotonin-releasing tryptophan, and they’re high in omega-3 fatty acids. Amazing, right? A common question, however, is: “How do you use chia seeds?” We hear ya. If you’re new to the chia game, you’re probably thinking, “But what the heck do I even do with these?” We’ve got plenty of options for you to take your nutrition to the next level with this powerful superfood. Your brain and body will thank you. As a Pudding. First things first, we love us some chia pudding at[…]

Meghan Markle is one healthy eater. During a recent interview with Good Housekeeping, the 35-year-old actress and current girlfriend of Prince Harry shared her five refrigerator must haves, and we’re pleasantly surprised. In addition to hummus, almond milk, green juice, and carrots (“Because I love them and so does my dog, Bogart, strangely.”), Markle also revealed her love for chia seed pudding. The Suits actress even confessed to making the dessert “every single week.” Fun fact: chia seed pudding is actually low in calories and will leave you feeling full after, so it makes sense why Meghan Markle is a fan of the yummy dessert that we often eat for breakfast. If you want to try out chia seed pudding[…]

You try your best to log eight hours of sleep each night, choose healthy food options when you can, and squeeze in a few hours of exercise each week. You’re young, and you think you’re generally healthy – and you probably are. But if you’re like 44 million American adults, you visit a doctor every year, just to be sure. According to a survey< from the Kaiser Family Foundation, a full 92 percent of Americans think that an annual physical is a cornerstone of general well-being, and around 62 percent report actually getting the check-up. But the ritualistic visit, which usually involves disrobing for a semi-arbitrary physical exam and giving away a few tubes of blood and urine, has been[…]

High-protein, low-carb diets are often touted as magic cures for those who want to drop a little (or a lot) of extra weight. The Atkins rave of the early 2000s and the more recent hype around the Paleo lifestyle have driven a high-protein movement that gained momentum with media attention and celebrity endorsements. Though some research does suggest that high-protein diets lead to weight loss in the short term, the greater body of evidence indicates that in the long term, these diets may do more harm than good. One recent study of 34 overweight women asked half the group to eat a typical weight-loss diet containing a standard amount of protein and the other half to follow an otherwise identical[…]
