When I found out about these zero calorie, carb free, gluten free noodles I nearly died. They REALLY are zero calories because they’re made out of 97% water and 3% fiber (glucomannan). These noodles have been around forever and originated in Japan. It’s a good way to get full when you’re really watching your caloric intake. The noodles can be subbed for any pasta or noodle dish. They end up taking the flavor of the sauce you cook with. They are AMAZING. Click here to go to their store.
A durable yoga mat
You can get a decent yoga mat on Amazon for under $20. These will usually be about 1/8 or 3/8″ thick and will last you a good few years if you use it a few times a week.
A fashionable and functional yoga bag or gym bag
I couldn’t find myself the perfect yoga bag so I designed my own! The new designs are super chic and roomy enough to fit your mat PLUS a ton of other stuff! They each have sweat-proof lining, ventilation holes, adjustable straps, key clips, lock loops, jewelry pockets, water bottle pockets, phone & iPod pockets, and a matching shoe bag. Get one here!

I love peanut butter so much but unfortunately I can’t afford to eat it all day long, calorically. When I found out about PB2 I nearly flipped out! It’s pressed peanut butter powder thats’s only 45 calories per TBS versus the traditional 200 calories of regular peanut butter! If you just want the flavor of peanut butter and are already getting enough healthy fats in your diet, you have to try PB2. All you do is mix the powder with water and it tastes EXACTLY like peanut butter. So goooood!!!! It changed my life.
Vanilla Whey Protein
One of my fave things to eat in the morning are protein pancakes. Without my whey protein, I can’t make it! There are so many brands out there, and I don’t particularly have a go-to one yet. What I can recommend is to try to look for a powder that is low in carbs, fat, and sugars (under 3g each) and high in protein (at least 20g, most are around 23-26g) at 120-130 calories a scoop.
Protein is great for building muscle and is essential to consume within 30-60 min after a strength training workout. You can also get complete protein from sources like lean meats, egg whites, and tempeh.
Egg whites are the best. There’s only 17 calories in 1 large egg white and it has 4g of protein. I could eat these all day. I use them in a lot of my healthy recipes including the pancake mentioned above. I buy liquid egg whites so that I don’t have to waste the yolk.
