Attending Gasparilla this Saturday? Here’s your Survival Kit

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 1/27/2017 to Diet and Nutrition

For those who are attending the Pirate Fest this Saturday, you know it’s going to be an exciting day filled of beads, booze, pirate outfits, and lots of walking in Downtown Tampa. Pirates take this day quite seriously; many start drinking as early as 7 am and keep the party going until 2 am. Since this will be by seventh year attending, I have a good feel on how the day will go and what I’ll need to do to stay on top of my game.

Based on my past experiences, I’ve created a Gasparilla Survival Kit that will not only help you make it through the day but it might even prevent you from getting a hangover (say whaaa?).

To avoid feeling absolutely terrible later on, make sure to at least include a few items (if not all) in your Gasparilla Survival Kit:

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 1/23/2017 to Diet and Nutrition

I just ran out of Vega One’s Nutritional Shake in mixed berry so I decided to switch it up and try the coconut almond flavor. Needless to say, it tastes amazing! Vega never seems to disappoint when it comes to quality.

Resetting Your Body for the New Year

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 1/2/2017 to Diet and Nutrition

When it comes to holiday festivities, we tend to veer off track as far as nutrition and exercise goes. We consume foods that are high in sodium, sugar and fat which often leaves us feeling tired and sluggish. Many people strive to better themselves at the beginning of the new year through diet and exercise, but some lose motivation and fall into old habits.

Whether you are trying to bounce back into your normal routine or wanting to make lifestyle changes to your daily regimen, it’s important to reset your body so it’s prepared to make a healthy transition. Make sure to set attainable goals that aren’t too extreme; that way you will be more motivated to stick to your plan.

I have provided a list of recommended supplements to help you kick start 2017.

Your Food Labels Exposed

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 12/13/2016 to Diet and Nutrition

Growing up, I believed there was only healthy food and junk food. I thought all fruits and vegetables came straight from the earth- natural and pure. I wasn’t aware of processed and artificial ingredients, but I knew junk food was packed with sugar and salt. Years later I came to the realization that not all food is treated equally, by any means. I remember reading an “organic” label and thinking, isn’t food already organic? If it’s not, then what is it? What’s happening to our food?

Taking Care of Your Body during the Holiday Season with Enzymes and Probiotics

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 12/6/2016 to Diet and Nutrition

The holiday season is a time to eat, drink and be merry, however these festivities may be tricky if we are trying to be mindful of what we are putting in our bodies.  We tend to overindulge on appetizers, alcoholic beverages, turkey and ham, multiple side dishes, and desserts. I am guilty of overeating as well, although I try my best to control my portion size. There’s just so much food!

Superfood Profiles

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 11/15/2016 to Diet and Nutrition

What makes food a "superfood"? There is no legal or medical definition for the term, but it generally means any food, spice or herb that is nutrient-dense and supports overall health and wellbeing. Superfoods are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and polyphenols which help keep you healthy from the inside out. Although there are tons of superfoods out there, I have put together a list of my favorites, along with their health benefits.

Summer has officially arrived, but do you know what fruits and vegetables are in season? Consuming fruits and vegetables during their peak ensures optimal flavor and nutrition, and is better for the environment and economy.
