I received a few questions related to hitting your protein goal and how to know if your protein goal is too high. Basically, are you eating too much protein? This is a great question, so I have a few things to get consider when you’re trying to determine if your protein goal is too high or not.

Good morning! A bunch of you guys have asked about my favorite non-meat sources of protein, so here’s a post devoted to some of my favorites. I know there are plenty more high protein vegetarian options out there, but these are my current go-tos. I’m still experimenting and discovering new ones, so please share your favorites and how you incorporate them into your diet. I love getting new ideas and know you guys do too!…

One of the most common questions that I get from nutrition clients is “how do I get more protein into my diet?” Consuming enough protein is so important – it keeps you satisfied, your blood sugar more steady, cravings at bay, and helps you better recover from your workouts. Clients are often looking for tips on how to include more protein in their meals and snacks, so here are some tips as well as my favorite…

Hi, guys! Happy Hump Day! Did you see that I just launched a new FALL-INSPIRED macro offering?! It includes all sorts of delicious, macro-friendly seasonal recipes (i.e. apple, pumpkin, squash) along with your own personal macro goals. It doesn’t include one-on-one coaching, but it’s great for someone who just needs a little kick in the butt and motivation to get back on track. It’s perfect for post-Labor Day! If you have any questions, please don’t…

I am so excited to share these super helpful tips on how to include more protein in your diet from some amazing food and fitness influencers around the Internet. (There are even a couple of Registered Dietitians in the mix!) I’m always looking for new ideas to get a balance of various sources of protein into my diet, so I personally loved reading their ideas. Additionally, one of the most frequently asked questions that we receive…

Did you know September is National Whole Grain Month? It is indeed, which is why I am so excited to work with General Mills on this blog post. Ninety-five percent of Americans don’t get enough whole grain in their diet, but with cereal from General Mills, it’s easy. Whole grain is the first ingredient in all of the General Mills Big G Cereals, which means there is more whole grain than any other ingredient, including sugar from all…

Hi CNC peeps! I’m Chantelle, a certified health and lifestyle coach at Elemetta. As an old school CNC reader, I’m thrilled to write this guest post! Tina asked me to share some tips about veggie protein since she’s experimenting with eating more plant-powered meals. I’ve been vegetarian for 20 years and help people create healthy habits whether they’re paleo, vegan, or something in between. There can be many reasons for wanting to eat less meat….

Good morning, friends! If you’re like me, you’re all about getting protein in your diet. Of course, it’s really important when it comes to my workouts, but it’s also key for controlling my cravings and keeping me full, especially when it comes to my first meal of the day. Breakfast always sets the tone for my healthy habits, so I make sure it’s a good one. Typically, my breakfast is a mix of carbohydrates and fat with a healthy dose of…

This post is sponsored by Silk. Remember the single-serving recipe for brownie batter that I mentioned the other day? Well, here it is! And, trust me, it’s a good one. I make it ALL the time now. I love enjoying this Ooey-Gooey Brownie Batter after dinner as a way to satisfy my sweet tooth without going overboard on calories and sugar. It’s also perfect as a pre- or post-workout snack since it incorporates a good mix of protein, carbs, and…

Good morning! Right before running my first marathon, I wrote a post about why I was gaining weight during my training. I didn’t sign up for a marathon to necessarily lose weight, but I sure as heck didn’t think I would put on weight, especially since I was running so much. In the end, it came down to consuming more calories than my body needed, so I was about 10 pounds heavier on marathon day. When I…

I love a good muffin, so when I thought about what I would eat for breakfast and snack on during my upcoming travels, this tasty treat immediately popped into my head. But, I didn’t want to make any old muffin. (You know the ones that leave you hungry just a couple of hours later, right?) I wanted to make a muffin with some serious staying power, so I incorporated some of my favorite protein- and…

Did my post title remind anyone else of Punky Power?!? I totally said it that way in my head! 😀 Ok, maybe I’m weird. Snack I’m trying to amp-up my protein intake with the hope of satisfying my out-of-control sugar cravings. A lot of people left comments and emailed me to say that eating more protein (and fat) helped them combat their nasty cravings, so I’m giving it a try! Mid-morning, I snacked on a…
