Do you know that berries have special benefits for athletes? Ever woken up the day or two after an intense workout and been so sore that it became difficult and painful to do just about anything? Even getting in and out of a chair? That’s what physicians and scientists call delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and they think it’s due to inflammation created by tons of micro-tears in our muscles. And one of the best ways to reduce DOMS is by consuming loads of berries. A controlled study done on endurance athletes suggested that daily blueberry consumption significantly reduced oxidative stress and inflammation compared to a control group.

finishfit. Are Avacados Paleo? Give yourself a pat on the back if you guessed yes

Are Avacados Paleo? Give yourself a pat on the back if you guessed yes. 👏 The biggest benefit that avocados have to offer is their healthy fat content. Healthy fats are essential for a variety of bodily functions: brain function, hormonal balance, absorption of vitamins and minerals, and so on. Because many nutrients are fat-soluble, if you eat a nutrient-rich paleo diet but you aren’t consuming enough fat, you may be missing out on absorbing many of those nutrients. Avocados are roughly 77% fat (63% monounsaturated, 14% saturated, and 12% polyunsaturated). This is a near ideal breakdown of fat and this isn’t even all that avocados have to offer! They are also high in fiber and low in sugar (which is rare for a fruit) and they contain high levels of vitamins B, E, C, and K, as well as potassium.

finishfit. What's to not like about Salmon, Veggies, and brown rice? Yes, its loo

What's to not like about Salmon, Veggies, and brown rice? Yes, its looks delicious! But, believe it or not there are many people who do not like fish.  If you’re a vegetarian for health rather than ethical reasons, it’s worth noting that a 2015 study in JAMA Internal Medicine reported that pescovegetarians—who eat fish but who are otherwise vegetarians—had a lower risk of colorectal cancer. Pesco­vegetarians were 43 percent less likely to develop the cancer over 7.3 years—a lower risk than vegans or vegetarians overall.  So how can you get the benefits of fish without eating it? Some plant foods—notably flaxseeds, wal­nuts, and soybean and canola oil—contain an omega-3 fat called alpha linolenic acid (ALA) found in fish. While fish can convert ALA from algae and other sea plants into EPA and DHA, humans can do so only to a very limited degree—less than 1 percent is converted, according to some estimates. So, one option might be to add fish oil supplements to your diet (although research on the effectiveness of fish oil supplements is still ongoing).

Who said you can't have your pizza and eat it too?  Just give the low Carb Vegan Cauliflower Pizza a try: PIZZA CRUST: 1 head cauliflower, "riced" (yielding 6 cups cauliflower rice*) 1 1/2 DIY flax eggs (1 1/2 Tbsp (10 g) flaxseed + 4 Tbsp (60 ml) water 1/4 tsp sea salt 3 Tbsp Vegan Parmesan Cheese (or nutritional yeast if avoiding nuts) 1 tsp dried oregano 1 tsp dried basil 3 cloves garlic 1 heaping Tbsp cornstarch 1 Tbsp cornmeal (or gluten-free flour // to discourage the dough from  sticking to the parchment) TOPPINGS: Puréed tomatoes or Easy Marinara Vegan Pesto Sautéed or fresh vegetables (e.g. bell pepper, onion, mushroom) Fresh basil Red pepper flake Vegan parmesan cheese INSTRUCTIONS: In a large mixing bowl, prepare the flax egg and let rest 5 minutes. Then add cauliflower rice, sea salt, vegan parmesan cheese, oregano, basil, garlic, and cornstarch.  Stir. until “dough” forms.  Line a baking sheet or pizza stone/pan with parchment paper. Sprinkle with a little cornmeal or gluten-free flour to help prevent the pizza from sticking when slicing.  Then use your hands to carefully spread the dough into a circle or square (depending on shape of pan // see photo) and keep the crust slightly less than a 1/2-inch thick with a slightly thicker outer perimeter.  Bake crust for 45 minutes. Then remove from oven and carefully flip the crust. Do so by first loosening the crust from the bottom layer of parchment with a spatula and then laying another sheet of parchment paper on top of the crust. Then grab both sheets of parchment and gently flip. Arrange the crust back on the baking pan. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 10-12 minutes more or until the edges appear golden brown and the center feels mostly firm to the touch. ‭ #finishfit #finishitwithfinishfit #finishfitshop #fitness #gymlife #fitfam #instafitness #gym #instafit #fitnessaddict #active #bestoftheday #instadaily #fitnessfreak #health #healthylife #eatclean #twelveskip #fitspo #abs #foodgasm #lifestyle #diet #sixpacks #gainz #motivation

When was the last time you had watermelon? There’s more to this sweet melon than meets the eye. Watermelon contains citrulline, an amino acid that may increase nitric oxide levels in the body. Nitric oxide helps your blood vessels expand, which lowers blood pressure. That’s exactly how pre-workout supplements work. So next time, instead of reaching for a pre-workout, reach for watermelon.

finishfit. Do you plant your own vegetables? If so, here are 4 staples in harvest

Do you plant your own vegetables? If so, here are 4 staples in harvesting your own vegetables: 1) Harvest Vegetables Daily A great practice in harvesting vegetables is taking a basket out to the garden every day to see what has ripened. Picking vegetables as soon as they are ripe often encourages the plant to produce even more. 2) Bigger Does Not Necessarily Mean Better Most vegetables are at their peak of tenderness and flavor when they are relatively small. Zucchini, for example, are best when they are no more than six or seven inches long, and then they get tough and woody. (If you discover an overlooked whopper, grate it and make zucchini cookies or zucchini bread). 3) The Timing of Harvesting Vegetables It's crucial to keep track of what you planted and when it was planted. Keep the seed packet so you know what to expect in terms of when it is ready for harvest. There are many cultivars of vegetables today, bred for different characteristics such as size and flavor. For example, it would be a shame to pick yardlong beans (which actually are best when they are 15 to 18 inches long) at the five to six inches that would be normal for pole beans. You can plant a watermelon variety that ripens at eight inches across or one that's not ready until the fruit weighs 30 pounds. 4) Look for Signs of Trouble When you harvest, look out for signs of trouble, such as yellowing leaves or rotting fruit, and remove the problem parts. Even if it's something you can do little about -- such as blossom end rot or cracking from too much rain -- there's no point in letting the plant put energy into fruit you won't be able to eat.

The most common types of mushrooms found in grocery stores are: 1) shiitake 2) portobello 3) crimini 4) button 5) white mushroom 6) oyster 7) enoki 8) beech 9) maitake. You can’t go wrong with mushrooms. They’re fat-free, low-sodium, low-calorie, and cholesterol-free. They’re also packed with fiber, vitamins, and minerals among which are: 1. Antioxidants: Antioxidants help protect the body from damaging free radicals that can cause conditions like heart disease and cancer. 2. Beta glucan: Beta glucan is a form of soluble dietary fiber that’s been strongly linked to improving cholesterol and boosting heart health. 3. B vitamins: Mushrooms are rich in the B vitamins: riboflavin, niacin, and pantothenic acid. The combination helps protect heart health. 4. Copper: Copper helps your body make red blood cells, which are used to deliver oxygen all over the body. 5. Potassium: Potassium is extremely important when it comes to heart, muscle, and nerve function. #finishfit #finishitwithfinishfit #finishfitshop #fitness #gymlife #fitfam #instafitness #gym #instafit #fitnessaddict #active #bestoftheday #instadaily #fitnessfreak #health #healthylife #eatclean #twelveskip #fitspo #abs #foodgasm #lifestyle #diet #sixpacks #gainz #motivation

Tired of your usual grilled cheese sanswiches? Then try this post-workout “Roasted Tomato Basil Grilled cheese Sandwich”. * Preheat the oven to 400°F. * Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the tomatoes on the sheet. Roast for 15 minutes until the tomatoes are starting to burst. * Place the tomatoes in a bowl and carefully mash with a potato masher to extract the juice. Strain the tomatoes completely and reserve the juice in a small bowl. Mix 1 tablespoon of the juice into ¼ cup mayonnaise until it has the consistency of a sauce (double the tomato juice and mayonnaise for extra sauce). Reserve the strained tomatoes and sprinkle them with kosher salt. * Spread each slice of bread with tomato mayo. Top with 1/4 of the strained tomatoes, shredded mozzarella, and some torn pieces of basil. Sprinkle the toppings with a pinch of kosher salt and top with another slice of bread. * Heat a grill pan to medium high and brush it with butter. Cook the sandwiches until toasty and the cheese is melted, about 3 minutes per side. Serve immediately. ‭ ‭ #finishfit #finishitwithfinishfit #finishfitshop #fitness #gymlife #fitfam #instafitness #gym #instafit #fitnessaddict #active #bestoftheday #instadaily #fitnessfreak #health #healthylife #eatclean #twelveskip #fitspo #abs #foodgasm #lifestyle #diet #sixpacks #gainz #motivation

When is the next time you’re going shopping? Here are 4 simple rules to follow to make healthier choices at the supermarket. 1) Shop the perimeter of the grocery store, where fresh foods like fruits, vegetables, dairy, meat, and fish are usually located. Avoid the center aisles where junk foods lurk. 2) Choose "real" foods, such as 100% fruit juice or 100% whole-grain items with as little processing and as few additives as possible. If you want more salt or sugar, add it yourself. 3) Stay clear of foods with cartoons on the label that are targeted to children. If you don't want your kids eating junk foods, don't have them in the house. 4) Avoiding foods that contain more than five ingredients, artificial ingredients, or ingredients you can't pronounce. #finishfit #finishitwithfinishfit #finishfitshop #fitness #gymlife #fitfam #instafitness #gym #instafit #fitnessaddict #active #bestoftheday #instadaily #fitnessfreak #health #healthylife #eatclean #twelveskip #fitspo #abs #foodgasm #lifestyle #diet #sixpacks #gainz #motivation
