    Anaerobic Power Anaerobic Power is the only complete product that supplies the anaerobic energy pathway with a complete complement of anaerobic energy metabolites. The science is convincing. During intense training, your energy soures-both ATP and creatine phosphate are depleted.
    Pro Power Protein Plus Here are the potent anabolic and anti-catabolic factors that are included in ProPower’s superior engineered whey Protein Plus Powder:

    • 24 grams Protein from engineered Whey
    • 100mg L-Glutamine
    • 100mg Glucosamine
    • Nutrient Cofactors
    • 15mg Glycogen Replenishing Short-, Medium- and Long-Chain Glucose Polymers Per Serving
    • Low Sugars
    Super Omega-3 The nutrient is Omega 3 fatty acids — and particularly one type of Omega 3, DHA. Thousands of clinical trials have documented its importance for promoting good health and protecting against disease.  Omega-3 oils have been called “the miracle food of the 21st century.” Research shows the right kind can help prevent heart disease, maintain optimum blood pressure and cholesterol levels and give almost immediate relief from joint pain, migraines, depression, autoimmune diseases and many other conditions. And, by improving brain development and memory functioning, from conception through old age, certain Omega-3 oils also provide the perfect brain food. 
    BCAA – Plus The amino acids L-leucine, L-isoleucine, and L-valine, which have a particular molecular structure that gives them their name (branched chain amino acids), comprise an estimated 35% of muscle tissue.  The BCAAs, particularly L-leucine, help increase work capacity by stimulating the anabolism.  BCAAs are also burned as fuel during exercise, and even at rest in trained muscle tissue.  They are also essential amino acids, and cannot be made by the body.  So, it’s obvious that you need to take in BCAAs to maximize anabolism and spare the use of BCAAs from your muscle tissue during training.
    Glucosamine Chondroitin & MSM Chondroitin & MSM combines the top three structural components found in popular joint support products. Scientific studies indicate that Glucosamine helps provide the building blocks for supporting cartilage. Chondroitin helps to maintain joint cartilage. MSM is an organic source of sulfur and sunergistically enhances the benefits of Glucosamine and Chondroitin to support cartilage health. When taken as part of your daily supplement schedule, Glucosamine, Chondroitin & MSM provides these key ingredients into a formulary matrix to help revitalize the cellular components within the joints.
    Pro Whey Protein PROTEIN IS THE ONLY NUTRIENT SHOWN TO HELP BUILD MUSCLE.Our Whey Protein is enhanced with Glutamine Peptides for increasing muscle cell volume performance and has high levels of branch chained Amino Acids.Hydrolyzed Whey Isolate (ISO 94) is a specially filtered whey protein isolated enzyme treated to form high concentrations of whey peptides.  This advanced formula results in having the highest bioavailability of any protein.  Pro Power whey is manufactured using a concentrated cold spray drying method and a series of filtration steps that includes cross-and micro-ultra filtering, creating maximum nitrogen retention.  This Whey contains less than 1% lactose and fat.  Our Whey mixes easily with a spoon and tastes great.  Available in Vanilla and Chocolate.

  2. Lemon Pancakes

    Healthy and Delicious – Who Knew?!

    By Marcia Keener-CPT-ACSM, Wellcoach

    Many of my clients have the mistaken idea that healthy eating cannot possibly be tasty, and certainly not delicious.  However, Eating for Life by Bill Phillips contains recipes which offer evidence to the contrary.  My husband, Rick and I enjoy a leisurely weekend breakfast together each week.  We wanted a breakfast that we could look forward to for both taste and nutrition that could support a busy weekend day.  We wanted a balance of enjoyment and good health.  For the past several years (No, I did not mean months.) we have been enjoying The Golden Pancakes recipe found in that particular cookbook.  Not only do we prepare these pancakes for ourselves but any weekend guests enjoy them as well.  We have used the original recipe and have experimented with new flavors. Below is our favorite version:


    Lemon Golden Pancakes

    1 C uncooked whole grain rolled oats (not instant)

    6 egg whites (@ ¾ c)

    1 C fat free cottage cheese

    2 tsp vanilla (we use Mexican vanilla)

    1 tsp nutmeg

    6 packets Splenda

    Juice and zest of one lemon

    1 tsp of sea salt


    1. Lightly coat a nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray; place over medium heat.  If using an electric griddle, use 300 degrees/medium high.
    2. In a blender, combine oats, egg whites, cottage cheese, vanilla, nutmeg, sweetener, lemon juice, and lemon zest.  Blend on medium speed until smooth, about 1 minute.
    3. Pour batter about ¼ cup at a time, onto hot skillet. Cook pancakes until bubbly on top and dry around edges, about 3 minutes, about 3 minutes.  Turn and cook other side until golden brown, about 2 more minutes.
    4. While pancakes are cooking, microwave maples syrup and blueberries until warm.
    5. Place a serving of pancakes on warm plate.  Top with warm maple syrup and/or warm blueberries and non-fat whipped topping and a small amount of walnut pieces.  Enjoy!!!!!



    ¼ cup per serving of frozen blueberries heated (Use your preference on berries)

    Maple Syrup sweetened with Splenda

    Non-fat whipped topping

    Sprinkling of walnuts

  5. Beef with Fruit Salad

    2 servings

    Place 1 diced peach, 1 peeled and diced kiwi fruit, 1 medium diced red tomato, 1/2 small diced red onion, 1/4 cup shredded fresh basil leaves, and the juice and finely grated rind of 1/2 lime in a bowl. Toss with salt and pepper to taste and set aside.

    Grill two portions of extra-lean top sirloin steak over medium heat until desired readiness. (medium rare takes about five or six minutes per side.)

    Baked “fries”: Take 2 portions of a white potato and cut into 1/8-inch slices; toss the slices in a bowl containing 1 egg white, some Cajun seasoning and a pinch of salt. Spray a baking sheet, and bake the fries in a preheated 425 degree oven until crispy, about 20 minutes, turning once at 10 minutes. (When placing fries onto the baking sheet, drain off as much of the egg white as possible.) Season the fries with more Cajun seasoning after baking if you like yours really spicy.

    Place each portion of grilled sirloin on a plate and top each with half of the fruit salsa. Place a portion of the fries on the side, and enjoy this terrific meal with a glass of ice water.

  9. Greek Yogurt

    by Sandy Todd Webster


    Food for Thought:

    Generally speaking, yogurt is a healthy food standout, but Greek yogurt—opa! Now there’s a superstar and a party pleaser! Until a few years ago, you really had to search for this ingredient, but it’s been popularized on cooking shows and emphasized so much in healthy food preparation that it is widely available in grocery stores.



    Regular Yogurt vs. Greek Yogurt. In Greece, yogurt is made with sheep’s milk, a style that can be found in the United States; however, in the U.S. most yogurt, including Greek-style, is made with cow’s milk. Both are prepared using the same process, but Greek-style strains even more of the whey (the watery substance that floats to the top of most yogurt) from the solids, producing a supremely creamy texture and fabulous “mouth feel.” Greek-style yogurt has the same texture as full-fat sour cream. Even eating the nonfat version makes you feel you’re splurging on something decadent! Greek yogurt has slightly more calories than regular yogurt (about 100 vs. 80 for 6 ounces) and 18 grams (g) of protein compared with 8 g in regular.



    Nutrition Profile. According to the website SELF Nutrition Data, a 2/3-cup serving of Greek yogurt has about 130 calories (70 from fat); 8 g fat; 5 g saturated fat (but try the nonfat version); 20 milligrams (mg) cholesterol; 70 mg sodium; 5 g total carbohydrates—5 g sugar and 0 g dietary fiber; and 11 g protein.



    Suggested Uses. Try using Greek-style yogurt in these ways:

    ·         Substitute it for regular yogurt in any dish.

    ·         Substitute it for sour cream on potatoes, in dips or on tacos/burritos.

    ·         Try it as a substitute for cream cheese (experiment to find the best applications).

    ·         Mix it with fruit and/or drizzle it with a touch of honey for a delicious dessert.
