Pull-ups in the Bathroom: 4 Little Ways to Keep Up Fitness

The best way to enact change is to find ways of working something in to everyday life. This is true both for new skills and habits as well as for physical fitness. I have found that squeezing small workouts into any spare minutes helps to improve overall health. This not only keeps you actively exercising, but also taking full advantage of your time.

The trick is to blend these exercises into the things you would normally do every day. This way, it doesn’t feel like you are going out of your way to exercise. This helps you to remember to work out, and also makes it as quick and easy as possible. These exercises use your body weight and minimal, if any, equipment.

Almond Summer Squash “Oatmeal”

Oatmeal was always one of my favorite breakfasts and snacks. It’s quick, easy, filling, and delicious. After giving up grains, however, I’ve wanted to come up with something to fill this gap. While testing out flavors and combinations for my Summer Squash “Ice Cream,” I stumbled upon something that was pretty comparable, Almond Summer Squash “Oatmeal.”

Summer Squash “Ice Cream”

For a while now, I’ve been looking for a good healthy alternative to ice cream. I helped my father open up an ice cream store nine years ago, and I have been working there ever since, making and serving the creamy, heavenly goodness. It’s one of the things I miss the most while on this diet. Every dairy-free recipe I’ve come across, such as those which use bananas or coconuts, are still very high in sugar and carbohydrates. For those looking for an even healthier and still delicious alternative, I’ve come up with this: Summer Squash “Ice Cream.”

It’s fairly quick and incredibly easy, and might just satisfy your cool craving. I know it did for me. Here’s how to make it:

Fake Foods, or Healthy Alternatives

When I started this lifestyle, I was completely opposed to fake foods, or healthy diet-friendly alternatives to the unhealthy “foods” that I used to eat. I didn’t like the idea of making fake ice cream, or fake mashed potatoes or anything like that, because I wanted to appreciate the food that I was eating for what it was. I thought that eating fake versions of my weaknesses would just make me give in to temptation more. I’d much rather try to overcome this and build up my willpower.

But at a certain point, I found myself craving certain foods more and more, and falling into the terrible habit of more frequent cheat days. In order to save myself, appeal to others, and help those who were doing the same, I caved and decided to try my hand at making some alternatives.

Here are my Fake Foods / Healthy Alternatives Recipes.
