Post workout chocolate chip waffle 😍 to make the waffle batter I just blended 1 mashed banana, 1 egg, 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1/4 cup milk, 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder and 1 tsp chia seeds. Then I mixed in a few dairy free chocolate chips. I cooked it in a waffle maker and topped it with melted coconut peanut butter and chocolate hazelnut butter!

What is something good to eat after being sick?

onegirlfourlives:

I’ve been sick all day and I’m just starting to feel good enough to eat something. I rarely get sick, so I don’t have as much experience with this. I’ve been eating saltines and animal crackers with sprite, but I feel like I need some protein. My mother (a nurse) recommended…

My mom always tells me to do the BRAT diet. Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, Toast and then also chicken broth. Most chicken broth is also made with veggies do you get a serving that way too

Should I Buy Organic?
What is classified as organic?

Organic produce is produce that was grown without the use of pesticides, GMOs, radiation, and other chemicals. It consists of produce that was grown naturally. 

How can you tell if something is organic?

If the label reads that a product is 100% organic then it is just that. However, if the label reads that it is organic, then the product contains ingredients that are at least 95% organic. Some products may contain organic ingredients but will not be labeled organic because they do not contain 95% or more of organic ingredients.

Is it more expensive?

Organic may sometimes be more expensive but that is not always the case. However, as the demand for organic products increases, the costs will go down. Since organic produce requires more labor, it may be more costly.

Is it better?

This is a hard question to answer. There has not been enough research done to confirm whether or not the benefits of organic food is significant.

An article from The Washington Post compares conventional foods with organic foods by splitting them up in categories like fish, meat, milk, produce, and eggs. The article ends up finding that while there are some differences between the two that would make the organic foods better, they aren’t significant differences.
What is the difference between “Organic” and “100% Organic”?

In order for a food to be labeled as “Organic”, it needs to be at least 95% organic. Those foods have this label. 


A food that is labeled as “100% Organic” is a food that is purely organic and has all organic ingredients.

*Most contaminated foods are strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes, apples, and pears.

Right before you head out running, it can be hard to remember exactly why you’re doing it. You often have to override a nagging sense of futility, lacing up your shoes, telling yourself that no matter how unlikely it seems right now, after you finish you will be glad you went. It’s only afterward that it makes sense, although even then it’s hard to rationalize why. You just feel right. After a run, you feel at one with the world, as though some unspecified, innate need has been fulfilled.
