Yum! Please keep sharing, I love these!!

Are all calories equal? No! Eating 300 calories of spinach is not the same as eating 300 calories of candy. The body uses and stores calories differently depending on what they are comprised of. Protein requires more energy to metabolize than fat and carbs, and different foods have different effects on fullness. So skip the sugar laden foods that will just leave you tired and hungry, and reach for veggies and fruit, high protein, and nutrient dense options!
When life is overwhelming take a step back and become grateful for everything you have.

Who doesn’t love a hot bowl of soup on a cold April day? I certainly do! This easy and healthy Mushroom Barley Soup is a great meal to keep you warm in this frigid weather. All you have to do is throw everything in a pot, let it simmer, and you’re good to go. Mushrooms are full of vitamins and minerals and even said to have medicinal properties. For extra protein, I usually have grilled chicken or fish on the side. So whip up a batch of this soup and enjoy!
Shishito peppers anyone?? These finger sized peppers are mild with a smokey flavor (although 1 out of every 15 can pack a punch so be warned!) They're filled with vitamin K, vitamin B6, and vitamin C so they make a nutritious snack.   Heat a tablespoon of oil in a pan and sauté 1/2 pound of shishitos (stirring often) for 3-5 minutes until the skin is blistered and the peppers have started to soften. Sprinkle with salt and prepare to be amazed!
Who doesn't love a delicious and healthy dessert? These 3 ingredient flourless brownies are everything! They're so darn healthy, you can even have them for breakfast. So go ahead and have your dessert without feeling cheated or over indulging!
Coach Stacie O'Neil Nevins and J Lo having some fun today in a last minute workout before the nighttime rush. Looking good Coaches!
Sweet potato toast? Yes, this amazing nutrient filled food (think beta-carotene and vitamin A) can also be a healthy and gluten-free substitute for bread. The possibilities are endless.

Directions:
-Slice the sweet potato lengthwise into ¼ inch thick slices
-Place the sweet potato slices in a toaster on high for about 5 minutes or until cooked through. 
-Top with desired toppings and enjoy!

My go-to toppers are peanut butter and sliced banana or mashed avocado with red pepper flakes and Himalayan salt...delish!
We would like to congratulate Lisa for being Pulse’s Member of the Month!

Lisa has been a part of Pulse from the beginning. Loyal. Dedicated. Hardworking. Athletic. Mentally Tough. Those are some of the words that describe Lisa. I’ve witnessed her push harder and harder every month to better herself. It’s motivating to watch her, especially when she has had to overcome challenges that she will never complain about. 

She also happens to be the sweetest woman. Lisa is doing some great charity and is a dedicated mother. When she walks into Pulse you have to smile. 1 because she is incredibly sweet and 2 because Leorah is usually attached to her at the hip😁. Member of the month was long overdue for her. 
Congrats Lisa! Nobody deserves it more.
Keep making progress, Warriors!
A dairy, gluten, and vegan free dip that actually tastes good? Sign me up! This smoked cashew "cheese" spread is a crowd pleaser, simple to make, and a healthy option for your veggies. The secret ingredients? Bourbon smoked sea salt and pepper...yum! You can even thin it out with water and use it as a sauce on zucchini noodles or as a dressing. I promise you won't feel like you're missing a thing!
This easy Italian Turkey Stir-fry is a great healthy option for week day nights. It’s a regular in my dinner rotation because it’s quick, full of vitamins, and delicious! I sauté some minced garlic in olive oil and add ground lean turkey until cooked.  In go my favorite mixed vegetables (or whatever I have on hand) and cook until the veggies get a little softened. Then I add salt, pepper, oregano and a little balsamic vinegar and that’s it! I mix it up with some quinoa or cauliflower rice and dinner is ready!
Coach Workout!
Roasting your vegetables is a great way to add more flavor to them. My latest obsession...shaved brussel sprouts! They come already shredded in a package. Just put them on a foil lined baking sheet, sprinkle with olive oil and Himalayan pink salt and bake at 425 degrees. They cook quickly and taste like French fries when they’re finished! Brussel sprouts are packed with fiber, protein, vitamins and antioxidants. Good and good for you...what could be better?
Exercising and eating healthy but still not losing weight? You may be underestimating the calories you are consuming. All of those extra bites and tastes you may take throughout the day can add up! A spoonful of peanut butter can have more than 90 calories, a handful of m&ms can have 100 calories, a handful of nuts can have 160 calories. So watch your extra bites and tastes if you’re not seeing the results you are looking for! Discipline is the key!
Who doesn't love going out for Mexican food? The only problem is the big basket of fried chips they serve at the beginning of the meal. 
The Pulse solution? Ask for sliced jicama or other veggies and use that to dip into the salsa and guacamole! Tons of unnecessary fat and calories saved!
Pulse is more than just a boxing gym...

Nutrition Tip:
Looking for a fun, portable, delicious, and healthy breakfast that you can customize? Then these egg “bagels” are for you. You can use egg whites, real eggs, and whatever veggies you like. Throw them in a donut/bagel pan with some salt and pepper and bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. You can keep them in the fridge for a few days and your breakfast and snacks will be set!
