The Most Effective Cardio 

A lot of people think that to lose weight and get the body you want, you have to do cardio. True. Cardio will help you burn fat. BUT, overtraining cardio will also start to eat your muscle. Muscle is what keeps you tone and helps you burn fat when you’re not working out, so too much cardio will give you the result of “skinny fat”. I’ve been there.

Eat More Calories 

One of the common misconceptions when losing weight is that you have to drastically cut your food intake to see results. I’ve been there too. I would eat below 1000 calories a day, essentially throwing my body into starvation mode. I now know that if you eat more you can lose more. WHAT, NIKKI?! Yes…. Fuel your body with MORE food and you will lose more. Of course, you still need to be moving that booty to burn calories or you’ll gain weight, but you definitely don’t have to starve yourself to get results any more!

Nikki’s Thai Chicken Coconut Soup 

Let’s take a trip to Thailand! Tom Kha Gai, or Chicken Coconut Soup, is one of my favorite soups on the planet earth. It is THAT good. I’ll eat it any time, but it’s awesome if you have a bad cold. It’s so fresh and soothing that it clears your sinuses and helps you heal. Let your food be your medicine right? The fresh ginger and lemon grass is all you need to feel better. Soups are great for fall and they store easily, so you can make double or triple the recipe to freeze it. Meal prep friendly recipes have a special place in my kitchen, especially ones that are perfect for fall. What I love best about this recipe is that there is no salt added. You don’t always need to cook with salt!

Nikki’s Autumn Banana Bread 

Banana bread is one of my favorite things to bake. It’s simple and you can do so many different flavor profile variations. Sometimes I add peanut butter; sometimes I add other fruit, like blueberries. It’s very versatile. Banana bread is also one of those treats that doesn’t feel like a cheat because it can be homemade and remain healthy. So I figured with fall just around the corner, I’d give you the recipe for my Autumn Banana Bread. And of course my recipe has a few ingredients swapped out… get used to it now.

Fruits and Veggies by the Cup Full 

No one ever got fat from eating a piece of fruit. I often tell people that even if you’re at your caloric intake for the day and you get hungry, go for an apple or crunchy veggies. Your body LOVES fruits and veggies. It wants them! They are packed with natural sugars and fiber, are easy to break down, and are way healthier than grabbing a processed snack like a power bar. Most are low in calories which means it won’t make you pop buttons if you have some extra servings. At the end of the day, they are whole foods and whole foods are what you should be putting in your body. So here are my rules about eating your fruits and veggies.
