Paleo Smoky Grilled Pineapple Burgers

Since going Paleo my family has fallen even more in love with our grill. Paleo and grilling just work well together. The past couple of years I've even been stepping outside my grilling comfort zone more and more. Grilling things I'd never thought to have grilled before and trying new flavor combinations. I have to say I'm pretty thrilled with the results of most of my flavor experiments.  In the past I'd never have thought to grill fruit, but it's amazing. Grilling fruit and adding it to traditionally savory dishes? Brilliant. Oh yes, and? New rule: every burger recipe for the rest of forever must contain grilled pineapple. OK, maybe more of a guideline. It's a seriously delicious combination though. This Smoky Grilled Pineapple Burger is always a crowd-pleaser at my house. It's not only Paleo, but Whole30, glutenfree, lower carb, and clean eating friendly. I promise you won't miss the bun!  paleo, grilled pineapple burger, smoky

FitViews Book Club January Book Reveal

  Have you joined FitViews Book Club yet? Well, January is the perfect time...  If you're curious, here are the details: We'll be meeting monthly over on Clubhouse to connect and chat about our monthly book selection.  What kinds of books will we be reading?  Fitness, health, wellness, nutrition, mindset, and related topics. One month might be a memoir and the next something on mindset or habits, then maybe something on lifting or nutrition. I'll try to mix it up and keep it interesting. By joining you are in no way obligated to read every book. If one of our monthly selections doesn't float your boat or you find yourself crazy busy for a bit, just skip that month! No big deal. Then jump back in any time. I want this to be fluid and welcoming. I understand that not every book I pick will be everyone's cup of tea. No worries. Also, you aren't required to speak. You can just come, listen, and enjoy. Or feel free to raise your hand if you want to join the convo. An

December Fit Goals + November How'd I do?

  November just flew! So, how'd I do on those November process goals? Well, I did amazing on the Starting Strength Program and pretty crappy on getting my walks in. My November goals were... As I said, I did amazing with the lifting (see those results here) and only got in a handful of shorter walks. As for my keto thanksgiving goal, I accomplished that easily and felt great about it.  So, for December my goals (as pictured at the top of this post) are: Lift MWF Walk Twice a Week Considering that Christmas and our homeschool break are coming up, and I'm working on launching a podcast, and... really my focus is building muscle right now, I'm keeping my focus on lifting and minimizing my walk goal to something more reasonable. (Did you see me slip that big news in there? More coming soon!) So, aiming for twice a week on my walks and leaving the lifting schedule the same. My lifting workouts currently look like this: 5 minutes warm-up on the rower as well as some hip circles

Clean BCAA Lemonade Recipe - Low Carb, Keto Friendly, No Sucralose

Today I have a clean, budget friendly BCAA Lemonade Recipe to share with you! BCAA Lemonade? Uh, why? First, BCAA stands for branched-chain amino acid. To get technical a minute, Wikipedia says:  A branched-chain amino acid ( BCAA ) is an amino acid having aliphatic side-chains with a branch (a central carbon atom bound to three or more carbon atoms). Among the proteinogenic amino acids, there are three  BCAAs : leucine, isoleucine and valine.  The three proteinogenic BCAAs are among the nine  essential amino acids  for humans, accounting for 35% of the essential amino acids in muscle proteins and 40% of the preformed amino acids required by mammals. BCAAs are a popular supplement in the fitness community. Though quite controversial. I've read claims from they help grow muscle to they help retain lean muscle when cutting calories to those that say they are completely and utterly worthless. I read an interesting article on BodyBuilding.com,  BCAAs: The Many Benefits of Branch-Chaine

Hype or Help Review: The Starting Strength Program

  Ya'll, I have not done a Hype or Help review in a hot minute. If you haven't been around these parts long, a Hype or Help review is more of a deep dive than just sharing my thoughts and opinions on a program.  I go all out and actually put myself through the program and share my entire experience and results. I generally share before and after photos, before and after weight and inches, and really the entire experience. (Scroll to the bottom to see my updates and progress!) I'm super excited to dive in and test out the Starting Strength program. This will obviously be so much more than just a book review, it will be a 2 month test of the program. Though I will share my thoughts on the book itself as well. So, what's Starting Strength? Well, it's a book , and a bigger picture barbell training methodology, by Mark Rippetoe. It really does go much beyond just the book as there are Starting Strength coaches and gyms out there too. Unfortunately, there isn't a coa
