Starbucks Inspired Homemade Protein Bistro Snack Pack

Starbucks-Inspired Protein Snack Pack

Starbucks Copycat Protein Bistro Packs
You know those packaged Starbucks Bistro Protein Packs? I love to pick them up along with my “Tall, Decaf, Soy, No Foam Latte” (yes, a little high maintenance order there…but I can’t have caffeine and I want as much soy milk as possible so no foam…but I digress). Anyway, the latte is already $3.75 and the protein pack “snack” adds another $5.25 to the order and poof…the balance on my Starbucks app goes away pretty quickly.

Every time I pick one up, I think “I can make this myself.” Also, I don’t eat the cheese that’s inside so I’m wasting food – in addition to the plastic container. But the little tasty bread rounds are my favorite and the limiting factor in making the packs myself.

3 Tips to Keep Your Fitness Resolutions Alive All Year

By the end of February, most New Year’s fitness resolutions are abandoned.

Gold’s Gym analyzed check-in data among its more than three million members over the past four years. Researchers found that gym attendance among new members begins dwindling 41 days after the New Year (Feb. 10), with most new gym-goers falling off what they call the “fitness cliff” by Feb. 24. Jamie Eason — a fitness magazine cover model, writer, and public speaker— has tips to help keep your fitness resolutions on track this year.

Land O’ Lake’s Meyer Lemon Snack Cake

Lemon Snack Cake
Meyer Lemon Snack Cake
This is a great morning snack cake! I love snack cakes because they have no or limited frosting and they are perfect with breakfast – you never feel like you are eating a heavy dessert. The tang of the lemon is a perfect way to start your morning. This recipe “only” uses less than a stick of butter so it isn’t super rich. And because of that, you can sneak pieces throughout the day. 🙂 Just sayin.
Lemon Snack Cake
Baked in an 8″ square pan, you can get 9 really big pieces or more smaller ones. I cut several of these into triangles and they looked cute.

Blue Cheese Popovers – Cold Start, Hot Finish

Easy Beef Wellingtons – Never Say Never

I’ve been quoted as saying beef wellington is one of the dumbest recipes of all time, and that I would never do a video for it, and I still stand by those statements. However, “dumb” doesn’t mean not delicious, or not beautiful to look at, and since I’m doing an individual version here, I’ve still not technically done a real beef wellington. My legal department has assured me… to read the rest of Chef John’s article about this Easy Beef Wellingtons recipe, please follow this link to become a member.)

Top Tips for Dropping Water and Gaining that Six-Pack

You may watch your macros as closely as a Mandalorian binge, but for most, getting abs to pop remains an elusive and demoralizing punch to the gut—no pun intended.

And it’s not as simple as doing 1,000 crunches every day. A 2019 study by the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research found that people who did ab workouts for six weeks increased their core strength but failed to lose abdominal fat. It doesn’t matter how strong your midsection is: if it’s covered by a layer of flab you won’t get the six-pack you’re after.

So, what to do next? Your problem may be as simple as retaining water that’s masking your stomach’s muscle definition.

This could be caused by a variety of factors, including the supplements you’re downing, an abundance of sodium, surprisingly even dehydration can be the reason for your bloated look. So yes, it’s still recommended you drink at least a six pack of Northern Chill Alkaline Water a day.

There is hope, t… Read More
