The Daily Dish of a Nutrition Genius Week 3

Brrrrrrrr it sure is getting cold here in Rochester, NY!! Despite the cold I am determined to keep up with my running schedule so on this chilly morning I got my butt out of bed and went for a fasted 6.5 mile run in the snow.

After my run my first priority was re-hydrating so I started with 1 tsp of magnesium powder mixed with 12 oz of water. As you know from Nutrition Genius Radio Episode 12: Post-Workout we like to reserve our highest carbohydrate meal for after workouts to replenish our muscle glycogen and help rebuild our tissues.

This is how I did it… Continue reading “The Daily Dish of a Nutrition Genius Week 3”

Sun and Cirrus CloudsNow that it is getting colder and we’re spending more time inside it’s important to pay attention to your vitamin D intake!Vitamin D is so freakin’ cool.

Sunday Morning Cinnamon French Toast Casserole

Sassy here and time for your weekly recipe, it’s a new spin on an old favorite (a #tbt for you social media fiends 🙂 )! Get ready to dig into a delicious and yes gluten free Cinnamon French Toast Casserole!

As long as I can remember, my family has had big Sunday brunches every week, right after we went to church.

My brother will tell you it’s because I did not want to clean up, my mother will say it was because I ate too fast and I would’ve just said it was the turkey bacon (ew!).

Well, lo and behold some 10-15 years later I LOVE breakfast and no longer get those nasty stomach pains and heartburn. How on earth did I make such a drastic change?!?

By getting RID of the GLUTEN!
