How to Make a Simple-Healthy-Inexpensive Smoothie at home using 4 Ingredients. Here is an example: 1) Choose a frozen berry or a fruit. I recommend either a handful of frozen Blueberries or cutting up a Whole Apple. 2) Choose a Dark Leafy Green. I recommend either a handful of frozen pre-washed Kale or Spinach. 3) Choose a spoonful of your favorite natural nut butter. My choice is Natural Peanut Butter. 4) Choose 1-2 scoops of a tasty Protein Powder. Taste is VERY important here. There are many choices, both animal and non-animal proteins. I personally prefer a chocolate Whey Protein Powder or a Vanilla Pea Protein Powder. Lastly, add some cold water to your blender full of ingredients. I usually fill it up to the half-way mark of whatever I put in my blender that day. Experiment with everything to get things how you like. Smoothies are a great way to add fruits and vegetables to your diet. Smoothies are best after exercise or when you’re in a hurry. I highly recommend them. You can add other ingredients. I put about a dozen different goodies in mine. To me, my smoothies are like daily medicine. Keep it simple. Enjoy. #bssbbooks #blueskystrongbox

“What exercise would you recommend if I only have time to do ONE exercise?” (Video below from my Instagram page)

TURN UP THE VOLUME. Today is an important (free) video I did for everyone that asks, “What’s one good exercise you recommend for busy people?” It’s a great question and one that I do get often. So if you were to just do one (strength) exercise, I would recommend choosing one from this list. I tried to choose exercises that I do myself. I also tried to choose exercises that had variety and could be done in almost any situation with a variety of equipment or no equipment. One single exercise practiced correctly, intensely enough & often enough can give a tremendous bang for the buck. If your main goal is to lose body fat, focus 99% of your effort on nutrition and 7-9 hours of sleep every single night. For health, most folks don’t need to do a bunch of exercises to strengthen the body. But we all do NEED to do something. Strength is super important for everything that relates to health, fitness and enjoying a long higher quality of life. Strength doesn’t have to mean working out all the time or building big muscles, if that’s not your cup of tea. Strength exercises come in many varieties. Most people just do nothing their entire adult lives which catches up to most people later when they are too weak to do basic everyday tasks. Do know that a “strength” exercise is the same thing as a “resistance” exercise or even a “weight-bearing” exercise. Don’t ever be confused. Keep things simple. Remember, your form (how you do the exercise) is very important. Doing it regularly is also very important. Write me with ANY questions you may have… so here’s the list: 1) The Swing 2) Deadlift+Carry 3) Squat to Row 4) Goblet Squat 5) Turkish Getup 6) Crawling 7) L-sit. With all that said, the single best “general” exercise in the world is WALKING. Seriously. People often think I’m joking but I’m not. Personally, I prefer and highly recommend walking uphill whenever possible. Walking daily is essential. #blueskystrongbox

New Health & Fitness Tips! So i’m doing a Free Video Series on what i consider to be the Essential Elements of Health & Fitness. Until the end of the year, my plan is to release one new video each week covering a fairly wide range of information, doing my best to limit most of the main points to 3 things. Tune in. These videos are free. I’m doing these to help. I know more than anyone how confusing and frustrating diet and exercise stuff is. I’ve worked professionally as a Personal trainer for well over a decade. My hope is to clear up some of the confusion. Take notes, ask questions. I’m always here to help…

New Weekly Health & Fitness Tips! Your health is the foundation that everything in your life is built on. Do not sacrifice it for anything else. It’s very common these days to find those that sacrifice their health for fitness gains and vanity. This can only last for so long without paying a price. If you want to look better, feel better or live longer then take good care of your health first and always. Begin with what I call the “big 3”. #1) Hydration. #2) 30 minutes of brisk, yet relaxed, daily walking. #3) A regular sleep schedule that allows you to get between 7-9 hours of sleep without the aide of drugs and alcohol during the waking hours.
