I am always in search of healthy meal options. I especially love healthy options that don’t require me to run out to the grocery store to buy a million rare ingredients. This Chickpea & Avocado Open-Faced Sandwich recipe is quick and healthy for lunch or dinner. It uses ingredients that you probably already have on hand and you don’t need any special equipment.
Last week, I did not stick to my usual workout schedule at all. I came home from work feeling tired and lazy, and with too many other things that I needed to get done. Whenever I get out of my workout routine, I find it really hard to get back in. The start of a new week is always a great excuse for me to start over with my work outs. I started this week off right with a trip to the gym for some cardio and strength training. How do you all stick to your workout plans or get back on track?
