It's hard to believe another year has come and gone. It feels like just yesterday everyone was lying on the couch, hands on bellies, wondering why they ate so much. We have a sneaking suspicion it may happen again, in a week's time.
There's something about Thanksgiving that makes even the most health-conscious among us let go for the day. We eat more calories in one meal than we would otherwise eat in a whole 24-hours. So, since we're all going to eat, we figured we may as well all eat better...
That's why our Registered Dietitians here at InsideTracker teamed up to create some recipes that will leave you feeling full and deliciously satisfied without that regretful, "I can't breathe, I'm so full," feeling.
In honor of a holiday in which we're grateful for a whole lot – including health – here's a full Thanksgiving feast for you and your family: From a tasty little appetizer to the main event.Read more
Trick or treat! Halloween marks the beginning of a long season in which to eat, drink, and be merry. For many of us, this means indulging a bit more than we normally would, skipping a workout here and there, and maybe foregoing a salad for a bowl of soul-warming pasta.
Add that to falling temperatures and a desire to curl up under the covers, and you have a recipe for diet disaster on your hands. The dreaded winter weight-gain can creep up quickly, but so can subsequent springtime weather, when we begin to shed the layers only realize it's a bit harder to shed those extra pounds. Where do we end up? Back in the gym working it all off...Read more
Did you know March is National Nutrition Month? We take nutrition pretty seriously around here, so we figured it's a perfect time to pay homage to foods that best fuel our blood. Forget the Oscars — we're joining the action with the inaugural InsideTracker Food Awards! Actors get a nod for their great performances; why shouldn't the modest mushroom, or the stellar steak?
We’ve grouped the body's biomarkers into eight categories and awarded each category a "winning food," based on its nutritional content and ability to pack a performance and health punch. Plus, we’ve created a recipe around each food (free to download) so you can whip up a healthy storm in the kitchen!Read more
Mom always told you to eat your beets. As usual, her instruction was on point. The health benefits of beets are well documented, but there’s a new trend on the performance-enhancing block in the form of juice — and not the illegal kind. Beetroot juice is all the rage these days, and it turns out it could be the key to unlocking increased speed and endurance in everyone from weekend warriors to seasoned pros.
Beetroot juice also packs a powerful cardiovascular health punch. That makes it the perfect topic for February’s theme of red: there's Valentine's Day, National Heart Health Month, and of course, February 5th was National Wear Red Day, the American Heart Association’s annual initiative to raise awareness about heart disease and stroke in women. Whether you decide to wear red or drink it, there’s more than one reason to try beetroot juice. We've even created a recipe so you can make your own!Read more
Whether you're in it for the game, the commercials or the parties, one thing is certain: Super Bowl Sunday will involve food. And it probably won't be healthy. You may not care at another time of year, but if you're still clinging to those New Year's resolutions like the rest of us, you'll agree that potato-chip-fried-bacon-on-a-stick can be the snack that sabotages your clean eating plans. Never fear: InsideTracker recipes are here!Read more
