The Truth About Peanut Butter

Peanut butter comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Not only that, you have to battle with which brand and type of peanut butter you want to purchase. There are a few things you should know before you throw another container of peanut butter into your shopping carriage.

Do you find yourself eating peanut butter often? Do you throw away the container because it expired and you didn't finish it, or do you throw the container away because it's empty? If you find yourself throwing away your peanut butter because you finished it, then first things first. Buy your peanut butter in bigger sizes. You will be spending a little more, but you pay less per serving. This will save you some money in the long run. Need more reasons why buying in bulk is better? Find out why here.

Amazing Protein Bar Recipe

The peanut butter is MIA
Protein bars are everywhere now a days. Unfortunately, they aren't all that healthy and they usually pack more sugar and saturated fat than candy bars. Luckily for you, I have stumbled upon a creation that everyone has loved and I want to share that recipe with you. These homemade protein bars can be described as a "carrot cake, banana cinnamon, chocolate brownie." Enjoy.

Super Size Me Not

For all of my SCSU friends, you might be familiar with the post I did recently about my favorite class: Stress Management. Thinking back to that class, not only was it full of many creative hands on activities, but it also included many movies. I absolutely love movies, and in that class, we watched Super Size Me. For those of you who haven't seen it, it is a documentary about how a man explores the consequences of his health while on a diet of eating strictly McDonalds for a month. Ahhh yes, the dreaded McDonalds.

Burning More Calories Post-Cardio

Did you know that building more muscle allows you to burn more calories throughout the day? Cardiovascular training can have the same effect. It has been proven that the intensity of your cardiovascular training can dictate how many calories you burn throughout the rest of the day. This is all made possible thanks to EPOC, which is short for Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption.
