Summer Green Juice Recipe

I just finished teaching one of my evening kettlebell classes outside.  I was lucky enough to be able to join in this time around.  The workout that we did tonight is a workout I will be featuring in the next edition of My Mad Method's magazine.   It was a tough one!  Being that it's summer time, we were all pretty drenched after this class.   With that being said, the only food that my body was craving after this sweaty evening was a glass of fresh juice.  I wasn't planning on juicing tonight so I didn't have my usual staples.  However, with what I had in my kitchen I made a surprisingly refreshing juice that satisfied me to the fullest.  I had to write this one down so I can go back and repeat this amazing fresh green juice filled with rainbow chard, cucumber, celery, apples, and key limes I made with my Breville juicer.  Yummy!!!



Fresh Green Juice - this made enough for 2-3 servings

Ingredients

1/2 bunch of Rainbow Chard (I cut part of the stems)
1 Cucumber
1 Celery head
2 Organic Small Apples
3-4 Key Limes (hand squeezed at the end) Key Ingredient


Hope you all enjoy this one as much as I did.  Feel free to interchange your chard with kale, spinach, or any salad greens.  I'm sure it will be just as refreshing.  Let me know what you think.

Hi Lauren, how has the vegan diet effected your weight and body fat%? what are you currently weighing in at w/both? I've been trying to find some information online, Can you provide info on losing body fat %... what to expect/aim for weekly? how to calculate with actual lbs on the scale? Thanks!

Robin is an inspiration! It is great to see that you can look like this whne you are over 50 years old -so nothing to fear if you keep ypur dedication to working out! From the pictures I would have thought that she isn`t older than 40 years old! Lauren, one question concerning your diet: How much protein do you consume per day? I know that this is greatly overrated in the fitness world but isn`t it difficult to get enough on a vegan diet? And what do you do to keep Omega 3/Omega 6 fatty acids balanced as the body cannot convert the Omega 3 fatty acids from plant sources (flax or hemp oil) very well? Thank you and keep on with this inspiring blog!

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me.

WELCOME!

First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today!

Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core again.  I d…

Let's Talk About Butts (Butt "on" Workouts)

To lift or not to lift, that is the question.  Despite the popular sayings, "Strong is the new Skinny" or "Strong is the New Sexy," there is still a large portion of the female population that will shy away from lifting solely due to their fear of bulking up or building too much muscle.  I'm not going to tell you that heavy weights won't help build muscle and I'm not going to deny the fact that some women can build muscle easier than others.  


Let's start with the photo below.  This is a nice example of the female backside that shows two different body types.  The woman on the left falls in the category of an ectomorph, which generally means skinny, little muscle, and a very high metabolism.  She could probably eat what she wants and stay skinny.  If she committed to a butt strengthening and enhancing program, filled with exercises such as squats, deadlifts, and kettlebell swings, developing the butt on the right would still be unlikely.  Through h…

Why Squat? Squats are one of the most beneficial exercises to practice.
