Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  It’s the meal that gives you the energy to start your day!  I always think of quick and easy meals I can create to give my body the boost it needs.  Well, toast is a fast way to start your day and it can be extremely healthy and nutritious if you know what to add to it.

Chelsea Crockett - Toast RecipesThe first recipe involves a piece of wheat toast with peanut butter and bananas!  Smear on a healthy serving of smooth or crunchy peanut butter, whatever you prefer. Take a banana and slice it up then put the banana slices all over the top of the peanut butter. Feel free to sprinkle a little cinnamon across the top of your toast, too!

Another recipe that I love is avocado toast. I take half an avocado and smash it up then add salt, pepper, and some red pepper flakes to it. Stir it all up and smear the avocado spread all over the top of your toast. It’s delicious! Feel free to add some bacon slices if you have some :).

My other favorite go-to recipe is scrambled egg with cheese and bacon on toast.  I love to take a fresh egg and scramble it in olive oil. Then, I add some cheddar cheese to the mix and stir it up. I toast my wheat bread and put the scrambled egg on top of it after it’s done! While I’m cooking all of that, I fry my bacon in the microwave. It comes out very crisp and I add it to my scrambled egg sandwich! YUM!

Bon appetit! – Chelsea

Writer’s block is a real struggle.  Sometimes we just can’t find the motivation to get anything done.  I’ve been there, done that, trust me!  It can even happen when I’m editing videos, writing articles, or coming up with Instagram captions!  When you’re struggling with writer’s block, here are a few ideas for regaining your motivation.

  • Allow yourself to take a half-hour or an hour break, more often than you think you need. Chelsea Crockett - Writer's Block This way is proved to be one of the most effective!
  • Take a nap.  Power-naps are a real thing.  Taking anywhere between a 30-60-minute nap can give your brain the energy it needs to think.  Sometimes sleeping really is the answer! 
  • If you’re hungry, eat your favorite snack.  I know for me, I love food!  Frustration can often take its toll so eating a light snack can give you a break and a boost.
  • Bring your spirits up.  When I get writer’s block, I often find myself getting frustrated and negative.  Do something that makes you happy!  Whether that be playing with your dog or calling your friend for a few minutes.  Positivity helps!
  • Free write.  Free writing is actually effective!  Sit down, grab a pencil, and write whatever comes to mind.  It may help or it may not, but it’s worth a shot!

I hope these help you next time you’re writing a paper or outlining your speech!

What and how you eat during the day can make a huge difference in your workout performance. Fueling your body the wrong way can hinder your performance, but also eating too much before exercise can interfere with your workout goals.

When it comes to eating before exercise, timing is everything. No matter the time of day that you exercise, you need to make sure to plan your workout two to 3 hours after your meal. Too much food before a workout will make you feel sluggish and can lead to stomach aches and
digestion problems. Most experts agree that you should eat a small snack about an hour before you workout to fuel your body, such as a little carbs and a little protein. Even if you workout first thing in the morning, eat a small piece of fruit to fuel your body with the nutrients your workout needs.

Exercising can make you feel energized and healthy, but first you have to fuel your body right!

Running is one of the best stress relievers, AND it is awesome cardio! In order to get the most out of your run and be successful, you need to give your body the right fuel. Here are a few fueling tips to help you optimize your runs and fuel your body the right way.

  1. Before your run: Before your run you need to eat foods that are filled with natural sugars that are easy to burn for energy. Bananas are one of these foods! Plus they are a great source of potassium AND are delicious.running 1
  2. During your run: If you are doing a long distance run, it is important to continually fuel your body so you do not run out of energy. Starbursts are great for this! They are easy to chew while running and pack a sugar punch.
  3. After your run: Eat some oats! Oats are rich in carbs and also packed with protein and fiber. Grab a bowl of oatmeal with almond milk and fruit for the perfect recovery snack!

Happy fueling!

XOXO, Chels
