15 minworkoutAs I began to decide where I wanted to take my blog, the most obvious direction was to give you weekly workouts!! So… as we begin each new week check back regularly for your free 15min workout that can be done at home, gym, on vacation, or even to sneak away from your desk at work.

Today we are going to keep it simple with a quick lower body workout. Perfect for when you need to stretch the legs or you can add weight in the gym to increase your intensity.

We start with 5 exercises and you complete one set of each exercise. If you are new to fitness, start with one round and work your way up. Try this for 2-3 days this week and before you know it, you will be doing 4 rounds in no time!

  • 50 Jumping Jacks & 50 High Knees
  • 40 Squats
  • 30 Mountain Climbers
  • 20 Walking Lunges
  • 10 Calf Raises

Complete each exercise then move down the list. Take a 1 min rest then repeat 3 more times!

*Option: Add hand weights to squats, lunges, and calf raises to increase your intensity level.

Give it a try and tell us what you think!

After several weeks of my low-carb diet, I have started to get bored with the same old meals. I’ve decided to experiment with new ways and one ingredient I never thought I would enjoy… CAULIFLOWER! I’ve never been able to eat it like my mother, cold with a side of veggie dip. Yuck!!  However, lately I keep hearing about this new craze about a cauliflower crust instead of your usual flour pizza crust. Sparked my interest so I gave it a try.  Women Cook

First attempt failed but in the making, I did come up with a great side dish.

  • 1 head of cauliflower (chopped in a food processor)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Push flat on greased cookie sheet and cook at 450 for 20min.

One step that I didn’t do well enough was you MUST squeeze the cauliflower to get the water out! I used a paper towel but didn’t get enough out to make it a flat-bread style. Instead, it reminded me more like cheesy grits! Haha, it was SOO yummy and I will definitely be making it again.

No picture for now as I totally messed it up but I’ll give it another go soon!

P.S. Was it just me, or did anyone else not know there was such a thing as PURPLE cauliflower? So cool!
