Better Pet Nutrition #HealthierTogether

Koneko is thrilled to be back on the blog again to chat about better pet nutrition. If you missed my first post featuring him it's here. He's really getting good at working the camera, don't you think? 

I talk a lot about food, nutrition, and especially paleo eating on FitViews. I believe that good nutrition is a must. It's the foundation upon which we build everything else in our lives. You may know that I'm passionate about people nutrition, but I'm also passionate about pet nutrition. Providing good nutrition is one of the most important things we can do for our families and our pets as well. Better nutrition equals better everything!

Quality nutrition is essential to my family's overall well-being and tha…

The Killer Jillian 30-Day Workout Rotation #killerjillian

If you've visited FitViews before you have probably noticed I'm rather fond of Jillian Michaels at-home workouts. I own virtually all she has and have reviewed many on this blog. They're just good, solid workouts that give me great results. 
I'm particularly fond of Jillian programs, calendars, and challenges. I've blogged through Body Revolution and BodyShred. I vlogged through the 30 Day Shred. Pretty much every Jillian challenge set forth I've delightedly owned.
But I'm feeling a bit "been there done that" lately. I want a new Jillian challenge. Something fresh, something challenging, something different. Something new to motivate me and push me. So, I decided to come up with my own! I'm calling it the #KillerJillian Challenge.


The #KillerJillianBefore I launch into the calendar, a little disclaimer: This challenge is in no way endorsed by Jillian Michaels. It's just a for-fun workout calendar I came up with. Also, I'm not a trainer, d…

Paleo Peach Cobbler

This Easy Paleo Peach Cobbler Recipe was sponsored by Puritan's Pride.
When I first went paleo I was convinced I’d need to swear off desserts and baked goods forever. That was fine for my first 30 days of strict paleo. After that I found I wanted to be able to have something sweet once in a while, but without going completely non-paleo crazy. That's when I discovered paleo baking! Who knew?!
Paleo baking is using paleo-friendly ingredients to mimic common baked goods like breads, cookies, pies, etc.
First, I played around with the different paleo-friendly ‘flours’, sweeteners, and oils. Then, once I became comfortable with the basics, I set out to convert my favorite old family recipes to being paleo-friendly.
My dad's favorite pie is peach. He loves peach pie at the holidays. Any holiday! I have yet to perfect a paleo double crust pie, but I have gotten pretty good at crisps and cobblers.
This is my revamped version of old-fashioned peach cobbler…

Easy Paleo Mashed Sweet Potatoes

This Easy Paleo Mashed Sweet Potatoes recipe was sponsored by Puritan's Pride.
Growing up the only encounter I had with sweet potatoes was at Thanksgiving dinner. I hesitate to even call them sweet potatoes though. They were more like sugar coated sugar, with a side of sugar. Seriously!
The recipe was to coat a baking dish in margarine, add diced sweet potatoes, top with more margarine and a healthy heaping of brown sugar. Bake. And then? At the end you top the whole thing with a bag of marshmallows and bake again.
Blech! Needless to say I was never fond of sweet potatoes.
When I first went paleo I decided to reacquaint myself with sweet potatoes. They’re a great paleo-friendly carb source. I must confess the thought made me shudder, but I persevered. I tried them simple. Baked. I was so shocked. They're so good!
Now, I love sweet potatoes. They’re a go-to side dish for family dinners. Not only are they delicious, but they’re good for us and easy to make. The funny thing about sweet…

FitViews 2016 Holiday Fit List

It's that time of year again!  Time for my FitViews Holiday Fit Listgift guide for 2016.
I just love the holidays. The music, the decorations, the extra time spent with family and friends, the Starbucks Peppermint White Chocolate Mochas...mmmm 


Oh wait, I wandered off. Holidays, yes.

What I don't love about the holidays is trying to figure out what to get people! I'm one of those people that wants to find the perfect thing that people are going to love and give a little squeal when they open. Some people are easy, but for those on my list that are tough to buy for I love gift guides. I've found the best presents on gift guides.

Which is why I do one here! So, if you don't know what to buy your wife for Christmas, read on. (Or sister, cousin, aunt, mother, bff, daughter...)

KETO Hot Cocoa Pancakes

OK, I know I've been on quite the low carb pancake tangent lately, but THESE! Seriously, these are yummtastic. Yummazing? Ya, they're really good. They just might be my favorite recipe I've ever done. Ever. OK, that might be my paleo apple crisp recipe, but that's not low carb...ooo, I wonder if I could tweak that low carb...

That would be brilliant!

You know, bloggers area always talking seo this and seo that (seo stands for search engine optimization if you're not a blogger) and I'm just over here yammering. I'm pretty sure when google's spider crawlers (anyone shiver at that word picture? eesh) get to FitViews they just think, "Yeesh, move along. Nothing to see here." Ha ha ha!

Anyway, pancakes. KETO Hot Cocoa Low Carb Pancakes no less. So good. 


As I've mentioned before I'm back to low carb (keto actually) and developing new recipes to make it easier to stick with. I find I just plain feel great when I eat ketogenic, and I definitely h…

Healthy is a Family Affair - #HealthierTogether with Nulo Pet Food

This is my cat Koneko. Koneko means "kitten" in Japanese. Koneko has been waiting not so patiently for his feature on the blog. I'm pretty sure he can't imagine what else I could possibly have had to talk about that was more important than him. He's ever ready for his close-up. Koneko likes family walks around the place, sneaking up on our other cat Todd, and lots of cuddles. 

I talk a lot about food on FitViews. You may know that I'm passionate about people nutrition, but I'm also equally passionate about pet nutrition. I believe healthy living is a family affair; furry family included! 

Researching nutrition is one of my favorite past-times. I'm constantly reading books, articles, and blogs on all thi…
