|How to Fuel Up for Your Workouts
Summarized from article by Angela Pfier
Many people believe that they will burn more fat if they exercise on an empty stomach. While this may be true, how much are you really burning if you do not have the energy to push yourself through an intense workout?
It's suggested that you eat a meal and consume 2-3 cups of liquids within 2-3 hours of your workout. If necessary, follow this up with a snack and another cup of liquids 1-2 hours before working out. During your workout, have another cup of liquid, and have a snack and 2-3 more cups of liquid within an hour after finishing your workout.CLICK HERE

Healthy Eating Recipe
Cottage Cheese Pancakes
With the help of this recipe from the "Eat Clean Diet Cookbook" by Tosca Reno, you can enjoy cottage cheese in your food and not on your legs ;) It's high in protein and low in calories and fat.
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp maple sugar flakes (I substitute brown sugar)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (I use a little more for flavor)
1/4 tsp sea salt
8 egg whites
1 cup fat-free cottage cheese
1 cup fat free plain yogurt (I use vanilla)
- makes 12 pancakes
1. Combine the first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl. Make a well in the center
2. Combine eggs, cottage cheese and yogurt in a small bowl. Pour into well. Stir until just moistened.
3. Heat a nonstick pan or griddle or prepare a skillet with cooking spray. Heat to medium high. Use 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook until lightly browned on both sides.
Kate's tip: Mix flax meal into the batter for an Omega-3 kick or put fruit into the batter or on top of the pancakes for more flavor and nutritional benefit.
