In the first part Carbohydrates, part I I shared the basics of carbohydrates including what they are, how they’re used in the body, how they’re digested, and how much we need.

Gift Guide for Fitness Lovers + barre3 gift!

Barre 3 Fitness Gift Guide 2014

Today I’m sharing some of my favorite fitness picks, as these are highly requested since I’m always talking about staying fit, working out, and my new love of barre3 here in Nashville. Ever since stumbling upon barre3, actually they lovely barre3 team sought me out and I’m so happy they did, but I’ve fallen in love with their philosophy and of course the workout. I’m a routine and avid barre3 class attendee at least 3 times a week and also find myself doing the 10 minute workouts throughout the day when I need a break to step away from my desk. They’re lifestyle is all about that, a lifestyle. It’s not some crazy strict ballet class, which I’ve tried before, but it’s a beautiful fusion of yoga, pilates, strength/conditioning, cardio, and balance. All things that my body and mind crave in comparison to my daily routine of sitting most days writing or standing in the kitchen cooking! I’ve noticed changes in my posture, my grace, and balance since starting with barre3 in only 3 months- I adore it.

Interview with Sarah B. of My New Roots

My New Roots Cover

I’ve had the pleasure to get to know the beautiful (from the inside out) Sarah from My New Roots beyond this lovely interview; and let me tell you she’s incredibly sweet and passionate about what she does, things I admire in a friend and as a source of inspiration. When I first read Sarah’s interview, I was incredibly engaged and caught myself shaking my head in agreement with her words about balancing life with work and enjoyment- a true soul sister in my eyes and spirit. Her recipes are classic, photography is stunning, and not to mention she’s a total babe (and new momma!). I’m so excited to share this candid interview with Sarah in hopes that her philosophy about life and food as well as her thoughts on living whole and well as we do here on Nutrition Stripped, will inspire you as greatly as she has done for me. Without further delay, meet my soul sister from Copenhagen, Sarah B of My New Roots.

Beetroot Coconut Sugar Cookies

Beetroot Coconut Sugar Cookies Nutrition Stripped

I took a quick poll on the Nutrition Stripped Facebook page last week asking about your favorite holiday cookies that you’d like to see a healthy remake of and the largest request was about sugar cookies! Not surprising though since sugar cookies are THE classic holiday cookie especially around this time of year when cookie swaps and cookie decorating is a part time activity. Beetroot Coconut Sugar Cookies involve one of my favorite root vegetables, beets, coupled with gluten free flours, coconut oil, and some other goodies. And they can be made vegan friendly too, bonus.
