Finally! A fitness plan that works for me

Finally! A fitness plan that works for me

Hey ladies hey!

I am writing today with more excitement than I have written a blog post in a long time.

This is because I have to share with you something that I thinkis incredibly important, and is also very close and dear to my heart.

It is this:

My most amazing friend, business partner, source of never-ending inspiration, and beloved fitness guru (“let me send you a video to show you proper form!”) Noelle Tarr is about to release a fitness program!

The reason this is so exciting to me is two fold:

1) Noelle is a powerful, talented, and inspiring woman. I am so proud of the work she’s done. I get all teary-eyed every time I think about it.

2)  One of the best things about Noelle is that she is thorough. She is smart. She cares deeply about quality. She is a freakishly freakish perfectionist. This might sometimes suck for her on a personal level (sorry Noelle!), but it means that she creates resources that work. I am excited partially because I am happy for her. But I am, even more so, excited because of how many lives she is about to change.

Noelle’s life in the fitness industry is both long and deep. She loves fitness with a passion that burns. She has been a dancer, an athlete, a runner, and a weightlifter. With so much experience (and with years worth of reading and research), she is now the queen of exercise that is safe, that is convenient, that is efficient, that feels good, and that makes you fit and strong.

So Noelle has a program. And it’s amazing. 

It’s called “Strong from Home” (check it out here) — and what it does is provide literally everything you need (once you purchase a kettlebell… that’s literally all you need) to have a kick ass fitness program right from your own home. This means, for one thing, that you can do the exercises on your own time. Morning, afternoon, or night. Sandwiched between your kids’ napping schedule. Whenever is best for you.

The exercises in Strong from Home are fast and they are efficient, so you literally only need 15 minutes to get effects some of your friends might get after a whole hour at the gym. They really get your heart pumping and feeling energetic and alive, and then you’re done, quick and with a vitalizing enerrgy.

This also means that you can choose the workouts that best suit your own needs. For example, you can tone the parts of the body you most want to focus on. You can also choose from a variety of different levels, from beginner to advanced, to suit your current fitness level.

Finally, this means that you can save a ton of money. Gym memberships are so expensive these days. Even at a YMCA or similarly budget-friendly facility, you could spend $80-$100 a month. At most gyms — and Crossfit boxes — you’re looking at $200 or more. This amounts to more than $2500 a year. Or, you could purchase a membership to Noelle’s program–which lasts forever, by the way–for just $137, and never pay a gym fee ever again.

Noelle’s program could save you $2400 in just one year. If you use it for two years, it could save you $4900! That’s about the price, by the way, of 7 round trip flights to London.

So let me tell you real quick what’s in the program. There’s lots – like I said, literally everything you need – so read all the way to the end, ok?

  1. No-Nonsense Instructional Guide – Everything you need to know about using the program and creating a framework that fits seamlessly into your life
  2. Complete Program Guide –4 done-for-you templates that map out a 12-week plan to easily follow based on your experience level
  3. Comprehensive Workout Library125+ workouts categorized by time, tools required, and type 
  4. Essential Motivational Guide – Clear and actionable steps for increasing your motivation and creating lasting habits, in case you struggle with that
  5. Go-To Exercise Visual Guide – Easy-to-follow photo examples of how to complete each exercise in the Workout Library
  6. Private Accountability Group – Private group exclusive to those following the Strong From Home program (Only in the Support + Premium Package)
  7. Day-to-Day Progress Tracker – Exactly what you need to track your workouts and progress as you implement the program (Only in the Support + Premium Package)
  8. Interactive Video Library – Exclusive membership site that contains step-by-step video tutorials for how to execute and modify each of the 75+ exercises listed in the Workout Library (Only in the Premium Package)

The program is being RELEASED FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER TODAY… 

AND IT IS 25% OFF, THIS WEEK ONLY!

Get it here: http://paleoforwomen.com/go/strong-from-home

It is altogether likely that the program will never be 25% off again. This is an extraordinary discount and I personally wouldn’t wait to jump on it. Hell, I haven’t. I got it. Because it’s an incredible deal for literally the most comprehensive and best suited to me fitness program I’ve ever come across.

This is for me. I’m too busy for gyms. I’m too cheap for gyms. I want exercises that make me stronger, that support my balance when I dance, that help me bike faster, that keep me from getting winded, and that make my insulin levels nice and low and sensitive (so I can eat all the apples!).

Noelle has finally provided what I need to do just that.

So please, check it out! You can read all about it (and watch a sample video) here:

Let me know what you think! I would love to hear if you find Noelle as charming, delightful, and knowledgeable as I do. 🙂

5 Must-Have Condiments for the Paleo Kitchen

5 Must-Have Condiments for the Paleo Kitchen

You’re a busy person, with a lot on your plate.

You’ve probably got work, or school, or kids, or all three!

And you’ve decided to eat home-cooked, wholesome food to help with your health.

Maybe you have hormonal conditions, or an autoimmune disease, maybe you want to lose weight, or clear up acne, or lower cholesterol.

No matter what the situation is that helped you decide to eat a paleo diet, the stresses of modern life effect us all.

I don’t care how much time I have on my hands.  I just do NOT want to make my own mayonnaise. 

Or ranch. 

Or ketchup. 

Or barbecue sauce. 

Whatever it is, I’ve basically got time to make my main dish and vegetable, and zero time to get fancy making condiments.

But condiments are what make food worth eating sometimes. 

I mean, a delicious ranch sauce on a chicken salad, or mayonnaise on a burger.

There’s nothing quite like it.

That’s why I’m so glad that things are changing.  It is now possible to buy great sauces and condiments online, in paleo form, made with healthy oils and ingredients, so I can sauce it up guilt-free. 

And out of the dozens of wonderful options out there, these are a few of the new favorites from Primal Kitchen I think you just gotta have in your pantry.

Primal Kitchen Mayo

This is the original, the best and the most important condiment I always keep on hand.
Store-bought mayo is made with the nastiest of the nasty ingredients- even the “olive oil” kind is usually loaded up with soybean oil or some other kind of Omega 6 rancid disaster oil.  

Mayo is eggs and fat at its core, so it’s also super strange that the store bought stuff seems to last practically forever.

And mayo is something I use in a LOT of dishes.

Primal kitchen makes theirs with delicious avocado oil.  I love the flavor MUCH more than mayo I’ve made at home with olive oil (which can come out bitter if you use EVOO), it has a definite traditional mayonnaise taste.

It’s super easy to get this stuff quickly thanks to the magic of Amazon.  Find avocado oil mayonnaise here.

Primal Kitchen Chipotle Mayo

What’s better than regular mayo?

Ummm…chipotle mayo!

This stuff is to-die-for good and makes Mexican dishes quick and easy.  It spices things up like nothing else and it’s also made from the same healthy avocado oil that the other Primal Kitchen Mayo is made from.

It’s a must-have condiment in my kitchen.  Find it here.

Primal Kitchen Ranch

When I first went paleo, I sometimes had the thought, “what is life without ranch?”

Memories of chicken nuggets, pizza, wings, and french fries dipped in the stuff swam through my head.

And, of course, it’s the best salad dressing!

But my ranch days were long behind me when I discovered Primal Kitchen’s ranch dressing. 

This was missing from paleo eating for TOO LONG and thank GOODNESS Primal Kitchen makes a healthy version. 

The options with ranch dressing are endless and not limited to lettuce covering.

I bake it in casseroles, slather it on meat, and just generally do everything short of drinking it out of the bottle.

Yum.  Find Primal Kitchen Ranch here. 

Primal Kitchen Greek

Like Greek dressing?

Me too.

And I missed it quite a bit.

I eat a LOT of salads on this paleo diet.  And olive oil/balsamic vinegar gets OLD. 

So the introduction of greek dressing back into my diet was a true variety maker!  

It’s delish!  Find it here.

Primal Kitchen Honey Mustard

Okay, so honey mustard isn’t the hardest thing in the world to make.

It’s just honey and mustard, right?

But the whole ratio thing is bothersome and having it in a bottle means its ready to go for meats and salads, quickly and easily. 

You can trust this honey mustard to be made from organic ingredients that taste delicious.

I’m a huge fan.  Find Primal Kitchen Honey Mustard on Amazon here. 

What are your go to condiments?  What do you choose to make and what do you choose to buy?

2016 Paleo Roundup

2016 Paleo Roundup

2016 is over and done, and if you’re reading this you’ve survived it.

Now that 2017 is here, it’s time to take a minute and reflect on where we’ve been.

About this time of year I also like to round up all the fun and exciting programs, products, and advances that have happened in the paleo community.

Every Friday we publish something new, and now I’m rounding them up for you.

Here’s all the best stuff to happen to paleo in 2016:

Supplements and Health

Whats new in paleo supplements and health products?  Lots!

For example, a whole new kind of protein that might just change the world.  And we found out how pumpkin can pack some nutritional power here.  Clarity on how the liver affects all your hormones.

We talked about the difference between prebiotics and probiotics, and how both are important for health.  Find out more here.

And we found out how to properly fuel our workouts here.  And then we talked a bit about the switch to walking here.

We found teas that help balance hormones, and a book that helps those with autoimmunity.

We learned to de-stress and sleep like a pro.  And we learned about the biggest and best changes to grass fed meat delivery in 2016 here

Beauty

Some great beauty products came out in 2016, too.  Here’s a few we covered.

First, we found out about probiotic skincare here, something that just might change your face for good!

We learned tips for shiny, beautiful hair here

And we found the best deodorant for sensitive skin.

Recipes and Cookbooks

SO many great cookbooks and recipes came out in 2016.  Here’s just a few of the great ones we shared.

Caramelized Rustic Bacon and Fennel Salad

Salted Mexican Chocolate Clusters

Chicken Tikka

Beef Buffad 

Eggplant Lasagna 

Bacon Beef Liver Pate with Rosemary and Thyme

Home Fries and Sausage Skillet

Well Fed Weeknights

Tandoori Chicken

Raan (Leg of Lamb)

Snacks and Food

We reviewed some GREAT snack foods in 2016, too.  Here’s a few of our favorites.

We learned to make paleo pasta here!

We found all the BEST butters, here.  And all about some great bone broths here.

We learned all about making an awesome paleo tea party here.

We found out about how to do salt right here, and how to sneak in some great snack to the movies, here.  

We found the best paleo pumpkin spice stuff, too!

Self-Love and Discovery

This year some truly great programs came out.

My friend Kayla came out with her pioneering disordered eating recovery/discovery program, which you can learn about here.

We learned 5 lessons from Sloths here, and how to have a fantastic introvert night in here.  

We learned how journaling can help us let it all out, here, and Summer showed us how to Rock Our Bodies.

Last but not least, we found out all the confessions of a former fitness model, here

2016 was another year to live in a modern, vibrant world, a world that is finally beginning to awaken to the truth about food, health, and lifestyle.  And YOU were a part of the paleo movement.  All in all, I’d say that’s a pretty good thing!

Thanks for making 2016 great!
