Fit Friday: MSF Summertime Trail Mix

Friday is here! I am so ready for grilled pizza night and maybe even a movie? It has been incredible weather this week and I’m hoping to take advantage of it this weekend with some time at the beach and a pool party for a special little mermaid who turns one 🙂 I was thinking of healthy snacks that I could just grab and go since I will be teaching Pilates in the morning and going straight to an event afterwards. It’s hard to think of things that you don’t need to refrigerate or won’t melt to a gooey mess […]

Fit Friday: MSF Salted Caramel Bites

Hello weekend! Even in the dead of summer vacation there is still something about Fridays, it’s honestly the best feeling to get to the end of a work week or weekdays and have the promise of a full weekend on the horizon. I have to say I’ve enjoyed my summer schedule which mostly consisted of Pilates and walking Finley, but there is something to be said about a work schedule and being able to depend on that consistency. I found myself busier than ever this week with appointments, meeting friends, and working on a multitude of projects. Whenever I get […]

Fit Friday: Treat-Yo-Self Superfood Cups

Happy Friday friends! Although I’m trying to get back into the healthy swing of things after our vacation, I still want to make sure I leave room for some decadence and have a treat when I have the craving. Instead of throwing it all out the window and giving into just any sweet treat I see, I make it a point to include a little nutrition so I’m not totally blowing it. In preparation for times like these, I like to make treats ahead that I can just grab when the urge strikes. I was looking through my refrigerator for […]

Fit Friday: Red, White and Blue Hummus

The strawberry and blueberry cake at Fourth of July BBQs has been played. If you’re looking for something to bring to your next festive gathering and want to boast your patriotic pride, I have an interesting spin on the classic trio. Hummus. Not many people dislike hummus and for good reason. It is filled with protein so keeps you full and satiated, has a creamy and pleasant texture, and is extremely versatile. What’s not to love? I thought it would be fun to include some simple recipes that would spice up your next gathering or impress the hostess with your […]

Coconut oil has been all the rage. While the health benefits and versatility of what it can do are impressive, I feel like it’s been done…we know it’s amazing and we understand what it can do for us. Seeing it everywhere made me think of where it comes from and if in fact the fruit itself is as impressive as the oil and water we see lining the shelves. After reading all about the coconut fruit, I found it to be just as fascinating as the counterparts we know and love. So here it is, my list of benefits I […]

Wellness Wednesday: 5 Reasons You’ll Go Maca For Maca

The Maca root is not something new and I touched upon it’s impressive benefits in an earlier post. To be honest I have only recently gotten into using it in my smoothies. When I discovered some of its amazing properties I wanted to spotlight it on MSF for those who are just jumping on the bandwagon and may want a little more info. It originated in Peru and is part of the radish family although it is commonly ground into a powder and consumed as a supplement or mixed into smoothies. The benefits of this root have been celebrated by ancient civilizations […]
