Hearty Winter Salad

Recipes, Veggie of the Month, What we're up to
We know that spring is upon us but we had to share what has become what we call in the Berg house our Winter Salad. This hearty salad has plenty of crunch and fiber to almost make it a meal. For me at least I need a little more protein. This salad checks off a lot of requirements for us. One it keeps for 3-4 days. (I hate chopping vegetables every day!) It is full of different colors of veggies. Meaning more nutrients. It has a very satisfying crunch to it. Oh and it tastes pretty good too. We also wanted to give all of our Habitual Fix members a little more inspiration during our vegetable week! Plus inspire all of our other clients to eat more veggies! For more info check…

ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

How To, Recipes, What we're up to
I know that this vegetable, like beets, can have a similar effect on folks. They either love them or they hate them. That seems to be how it is in my house. Jason and Jack will not touch them! However, I could eat them every day. I didn't start eating brussels sprouts until I was an adult. Luckily, I was never exposed to the dreaded boiled brussels sprout until I ordered it once in a restaurant and wondered why on earth would anyone want to eat that!  My favorite way to eat them is roasted. Super simple and vey flavorful. Brussels sprouts is a member of the cruciferous vegetables that every health expert on the planet is always trying to get us to eat. This is for good reason! Brussels…

Tech stuff, What we're up to
2019 has arrived and I am going to spend a lot of time out here in cyberspace imparting what I think I know.  It is my hope that you will look forward to explorations of health and fitness with me and that we both will learn and experience a few things along the way.   Before we get to all of that lets first just have a little bit of fun.  One of the things that I do for myself is to create interesting play lists for my workout times.  In particular, for cardio sessions, having a strong cadence to run to, or some powerful lyrics to energize me can make all the difference.   For a strength session I sometimes go with a book or interesting podcast.  I prefer a podcast…

Travel Workout in Denver

Free Programs, Goal Setting, How To, What we're up to
This last week I was in Denver visiting family, friends and going to my 20th high school reunion. Anyone that knows me knows that I am a planner and that I love to have a schedule and for it to be full. My grand plan for this visit turned out to be over-scheduled and even disrupted by altitude! Unfortunately, I did not get to do everything on my plan.  This included my running schedule. Since I grew up in Denver I never appreciated how thin the air is. Coming from Spokane which is at 1,843 feet above sea level (to be exact) to Denver which every one knows is the mile high city was a little bit of a shock to my system. I had headaches everyday and higher fatigue…

THE BEST LAID PLANS

book recommendations, Free Programs, What we're up to
Last summer, when I started running and getting more serious about getting strong enough to run, I used a daily planner to help keep me on track. I think I got this idea from another fitness blogger so nothing really original there. I laid out a plan that I would follow every week and would log daily what I had accomplished. It helped me to see what was working and, sometimes more importantly, what was not. This became incredibly useful when I got gluten/soy poisoned in late summer. Like Superman’s Kryptonite, I crumble when these two substances get to me. First, the migraines start followed by an unrelenting fatigue. It takes about six weeks for everything to clear up and feel human but then another six before my superpowers return…
