As we head into a season of gathering over food with family and friends, we’re sharing two delicious, longevity-approved dishes to give your holiday meal a nutrient-dense flair.
Simply adding more color to your plate can not only increase the nutritional value, but also make for a prettier display. Seasonal vegetables and fruits like leafy greens, orange and yellow squashes, purple potatoes, cranberries, pomegranates and citrus fruits are great additions to most side dishes while contributing to your daily intake of essential vitamins, minerals and fiber.
This protein-packed hearty salad is sure to please all family members. Using a homemade yogurt-based dressing, you’ll skip the added vegetable oils often found in processed, store-bought dressing while adding in an extra serving of protein. Mom tip: reserve a small amount of the dressing and offer it as a dip for the breaded chicken.

With September right around the corner, hurricane season (and pantry stocking season) is upon us.

Collagen has become a buzzword, mostly because of anti-aging skin benefits. Supplementation can help prevent fine lines overtime, keep the skin feeling plump, youthful and glowing, as well as develop stronger nails and hair. Collagen also aids in exercise recovery and bone/joint health. Beginning in our mid-twenties, collagen production declines. After the age of 40, we experience a 1% decline per year.
Struggling to walk up the steps after a high intensity class? Nervous of how sore you’re going to feel after a personal training session? Active recovery exercises, like low-intensity cardio, static stretching and myofascial release such as foam rolling or massage are all common ways to aid in muscle recovery, especially after an intense workout, but what you eat and drink after a workout can be just as important in the recovery process.
In the world of nutrition, how much and what type of protein we should consume is highly debated. Some say high quality animal meat is needed for optimal health, while others advocate for more vegetarian diets and plant-based sources of protein. The goal is to experiment with what works for your body, right now in your life.
What’s not to love about smoothies? They are convenient, customizable, portable and you can easily pack in the protein. They can taste like a tropical beach vacation drink or decadent chocolate dessert, depending on your mood or cravings. If you’re new to the wonderful world of smoothies, let us walk you through how to build your own nutrient-packed, delicious blend.
