This week the host of Fashion Flash is Shawna of Female Fat Loss Over 40. If I get discouraged or lazy about fitness, scrolling through this site gets me back on track. While watching a a twenty something hustle through Zumba routinue makes me feel that fitness is an impossible goal, Shawna’s step by step advice and videos empowers me to do more.
And when you are finished looking through all the great Fashion Flash sites, check out The Best of Clean Eating published by Robert Kenneday Publishing. I read my first issue of Clean Eating magazine while getting my bi-annual highlights. I was so excited by the temping, gorgeous yet healthy recipes that as soon as I was finished, I ran out to find my own copy. When I couldn’t find it in the neighborhood news stands, I raced back and begged the salon owner to let me buy her copy. It was that good.
Most lifestyle magazines will offer a monthly article on healthier food choices and recipes– printed right between an article on fried chicken around the world and the ten best recipes for cheesecake. In Clean Eating every sinlge recipe is packed with healthy nutrients and avoids all the stuff you don’t want to eat. Now the editors of CLean Eating have compiled about 200 of the best recipes into a colorful temping book. The Best of Clean Eating offers a full range of easy meals, snacks, budget entrees, and cooking for one or two. For example I’ve always loved the sweet potato spread served at the Angelica Kitchen ( the iconic vegan restaurant where John Lennon was a regular) and the recipe in Clean Eating is equally wonderful. My favorite chapters offers recipes for what are my most calorie and fat laden times– holiday dinners and Summer BBQ. For example the Clean Eating Mock Sangria starts with white cranberry juice and its my new summer favorite.
The Best of Clean Eating also provides a months worth of menus and shopping lists that detail how to use the recipes IRL.
