Five Snacks I’m Currently Dying Over

I’m probs the biggest snacker ever. Three meals just isn’t my thing.

Life’s too jammed packed to whip up multi-grain pancakes for breaky, salmon with a side of organic greens for lunch, & grilled chicken & lentils for dinner.

Plus. I’m bored with three meals. Snacking keeps your metabolism up.

When people ask me about a meal plan, I don’t really know what to say. It switches all the time- depending on my mood, the season ( << for veggies & fruits ), & if Aunt Flow’s in town ( lolz ).

Here’s five healthy snacks that I’ve been obsessing over lately:

1.} Eggs: I scramble two & then throw red onion, tomatoes, & avocado slices on top. Add a dash of pepper & you’re good to go.

2.} Sunflower seed butter: put it on banana slices, apple wedges, low-carb toast, or eat it plain! YUM.

3.} Mini bell peppers: besides the fact that they’re so damn cute, they make a fantastic snack. They’re filled with Vit C, Vit A, & tons of fiber. I whip up the lowest calorie dressing the world, slice the cuties up, & add lemon. Die!

4.} Spelt rice cakes: these feel like you’re eating carbs in all the right ways. These rice cakes are super low cal & low in carbs. I add sunflower seed butter, a bit of honey, & a sprinkle of cinnamon. This is one of my favorite snacks ever!

5.} Watermelon + pineapple: love both of these fruit because they contain a lot of water. I put lemon ( yes, lemon ) on top & add a few spoonfuls of low fat cottage cheese or Greek yogurt for a quick, easy snack.

Any snacks I’m missing? Tell, tell.

YouTube Sensation: SarahFit !!!

Lauryn Evarts talks with YouTube sensation Sarah Dussault about skinny tips and tricks.

Happy Sunday babes! Tonight on ze blog I have YouTube sensation, Sarah Dussault [ check out my interview on her blog too! ]. This fitness guru is a busy, busy bee; she has almost 90k subscribers on her YouTube channel + runs the blog, SarahFit + is a regular expert on Diet.com’s channel. Geez!! Annnnddd she manages to eat right & workout- inspiring, much? Read on, lovaz:

+ Introduce yourself:

Sarah Dussault: I am a fitness loving blogger who originally wanted to be an on air reporter but somehow landed on YouTube. I have always been into athletics & am always looking to challenge myself. My blog, SarahFit, was created to supplement my YouTube channel but now I spend about the same amount of time on both. My YouTube channel, SarahsFabChannel has over 83K subscribers which is crazy for me to think about, but I’m forever grateful that I got in during the early years.

Lauryn Evarts talks with YouTube sensation Sarah Dussault about skinny tips and tricks.

+ Quick skinny tips or tricks?

SD: Avoid starchy carbs and dessert at night. When I do this, I get a better sleep & wake up feeling energetic. I have a sweet tooth post any meal, so this is quite challenging for me to do!

+ Weekly workout schedule?

SD: My weekly workout schedule changes frequently. Last year, I was training for the Urbanathon & incorporated a lot of cardio three times a week & strength training three times a week. These days, I’m doing The Bar Method five days a week and running thirty to forty minutes three days a week. I run five miles on Saturday & usually take Sundays off. A little extreme by my own standards but I’m conducting my own research. I have a month unlimited at The Bar Method & I’m eager to see if it really can change the shape of your legs. I’ve always had strong quads, so I was curious if ditching lunges for ballet movements would have any effect. I’m only two weeks in, so the conclusion is yet to be made!

+ Favorite go-to healthy food?

SD: My favorite go-to healthy food has to be the protein pancake. I have it every morning for breakfast & have yet to get sick of it after an entire year.

Lauryn Evarts talks with YouTube sensation Sarah Dussault about skinny tips and tricks.

+ Cocktail of choice?

SD: I do love a skinny margarita, but when I go the bar I will usually get a glass of Sauvingon Blanc or vodka soda with a splash of pineapple juice & a cherry. I’m like an eight year old when it comes to cherries; I love them in my drinks!

+ Motivation to stay in shape?

SD: My motivation to stay in shape is because I feel my best when I’m working out. When I don’t exercise, I feel tired & depressed. It makes me feel good about how I look. Also, it’s my job to be in shape pretty much. There is something to be said about finishing a challenging race. The overflow of endorphins & excitement is just overwhelming. Finishing a strong race with a great time is one of the best feelings.

Lauryn Evarts talks with YouTube sensation Sarah Dussault about skinny tips and tricks.

+ Quick, easy recipe?

SD: My favorite quick recipe is my salsa chicken. It’s just two ingredients in the crock pot. I guess that disqualifies it as a quick, but it is easy & makes for quick dinners if you remember to put it on in the morning.

+ Fav beauty product?

SD: My favorite beauty product is by Philosophy and is actually a cleanser called ‘Purity‘. It’s the only cleanser that keeps my skin clear!

+ Natural beauty remedy?

SD: I love how relaxing putting cucumbers on your eyes can feel. I get puffy eyes when I sleep with a fan on. If I have to film that day, I make it a point to relax for ten minutes with two slices on my face.

Look Hot in Your Sexy Halloween Costume

Supppp Halloween!!!— many of you babes are going out tomorrow night to party, get spooky, & dance to the “Monster Mash”.

I’m gonna to go out on a whim here & take a wild guess: most of your sexy costumes are belly bearing, supa short shorts, or revealing in some way.

Shocker!

But hey, get cray- Halloween only comes around once a year! Anyway, here’s some tips + tricks for looking extra hot on the sluttiest creepiest holiday of the year…

Hot & Sexy Halloween Tips: 

 + Drink up. Since you’re bound to be out late, enjoying a few cocktails, make sure to prep yourself before you wreck yourself. Guzzle this natural hot lemon diuretic before going out. If I bare my legs/belly/etc., I’ll drink this in the AM & PM. This lemon diuretic flushes out the system, which takes away bloat. Think of it as a ‘mini cleanse.’

+ Tan. Spray tanning makes everything look better. If you do it right. Stay away from anything with red undertones. Think bronzed  & sun-kissed, not Oompa-Loompa, Snooki orange. Find more tanning tips here.

+ Eat. Before going out on the town, eat a piece of low-carb toast with soy butter or avocado, cottage cheese & fruit, or scrambled eggs. If you’re drinking, these types of foods will help absorb the alcohol.

+ Light on the carbs & sugar. For the day [ & maybe the day before ] cut your carb intake in half. Also get rid of any processed sugars & ditch the salt. Too much salt can make people appear ten pounds heavier.

+ Vodka/water. If you’re wearing a revealing outfit, the best alcoholic beverage on the planet is vodka/water + three lemons. It’s light & has no bloating soda water in it.

+ Lotion. Wear firming lotion. It tightens everything up & make your limbs look smooth and sleek. My favorite: Olay’s Quench Plus Firming Body Lotion.

+ Shimmer. Adding a bit of bronzed shimmer to the abs makes them sparkle lightly. If you’re wearing a crop top, use a makeup brush to apply sparingly. I die over this bronzer/shimmer.

+ Workout. Yeup, yeup, yeup. Make time for fitness. People look way more toned after a workout.

+ Posture: throw your shoulders back & stand tall. Evoke your inner sex kitten {!!!}.

These pictures are from Halloween 2011 [ I was an indian chief ] & 2010 [ Tom Cruise from Risky Business { p.s. the cig is prop!!! } ]. And naturally, Pixy Bean was a watermelon. Hope everyone enjoys their Halloween- cheers!

Ahhhh…San Francisco was a whirlwind! We had way too much fun, ate the most delectable foods, & drank enough to make me say “I am never drinking again” [ <<< I'm sure you all know this feeling! ]. It was a welcomed three-day vacation; in the past couple weeks I’ve been multi-tasking at full force, so it was heavenly to shut off my computer & relax.

Since my daily routine is rather healthy, the indulgent trip took its toll this morning. My immune system needs a swift kick in the ass! Tomorrow I’m doing a double workout, drinking only water, & eating foods filled with vitamins & nutrients [ think every vegetable imaginable, egg whites, water-filled fruits, & quinoa ]. I really try to practice balance: if I let loose for a few days, then the next couple weeks I push myself to eat healthy & sweat often.

What’s your recovery advice- any tricks?
