It takes effort and dedication to make time for a workout --- especially on a holiday. That's why it's nice to have a few go-to workouts that you can do anywhere (with or without weights). Check out my 4th of July-inspired fat-burning workout. It's 13 movements (for the 13 colonies) with sets of 50 (for the 50 states).

Stuffed Peppers 

I had to share this recipe because I’ve been talking about it all week. It’s one of my all-time favorite meals to prepare when detoxing. This dish is easy to make, nutritious and satisfying.

If you’re a vegan or vegetarian, add kidney beans instead of meat. Not a fan of rice or want to add an extra protein kick? Substitute the rice for quinoa, which is also tasty and lends a nutty flavor.

But when it comes to eating healthier, it doesn’t always mean that you have to completely overhaul your diet.  In fact, when working with clients, I find most often, they just need new ideas.  They want an action plan that gest them out of a rut and focused on eating clean.
