With back to school and cooler temperatures, fall is always the time of year when focusing on your health seems to be put on the back burner. You don’t have to let this busy time of year take the wind out of your sails though. There are certain things you can do to have a healthier fall for you and your family.

1. Make the most of seasonal foods

We always think about apples and pumpkins in fall because it’s prime season for them. While pumpkin pie and pumpkin spice lattes aren’t so good for us, roasted pumpkin, pumpkin soup, or even mashed pumpkin is delicious and nutritious. Apples don’t need to go in pies to be sublime. Slice them up with your favorite nut butter smeared on top. Look for other seasonal foods that will do your health good, and you’ll find you can easily fill your plate with seasonal foods that you’ll love.

2. Prepare and protect from colds

Ideally, you should do this before you notice everyone around you sniffling and sneezing. Keep your hands off your face and keep them clean. Don’t forget good rest and a proper, healthy diet will help you, too. By taking care of yourself, even if everyone else gets sick, you’ll be less likely to succumb to the germs.

3. Stay out of the candy trap

Admit it. One of your favorite things about fall is Halloween. It’s a blast to decorate for and see all the kids in costume, but the most significant health problem we all face for this holiday is the surplus of candy. Tempting as it is to buy that big bag and stash it away for when the trick or treaters come around, don’t do it. If you can’t resist it, don’t buy it until just before Halloween, choose something you wouldn’t eat yourself, or even better, keep the neighborhood happy and healthy by buying small sticker packs instead.  There are numerous healthy Halloween options to choose from!

4. Get into the great outdoors

With the colder weather, it’s nice to get outdoors and enjoy the crispness on your cheeks. It’s nice for hiking, biking, or just enjoying the change in the seasons. Staying active during the fall is an excellent way to keep your health in exceptional condition.

5. Make wise celebration choices

Halloween is just the beginning. With fall comes football parties and then the holiday season where it’s an endless buffet of food, sweets, and ever-flowing libations. You don’t need to miss out on all the fun, but do choose wisely when you’re eating.  At parties, fill your plate up with veggies first before sampling sweets, so you’re too full to eat more than a bite or two. By doing that, you’ll avoid gaining weight by Christmas.

Don’t forget that fall should be fun, but if you fall into any of these fall pitfalls, take care and take steps to get back on track!

We're so excited to share with you the personal story about this months' spotlight member of our tribe, Carley Lloyd. We love having her as apart of our tribe, her dedication with living a healthier lifestyle is encouraging! Here is our September 2018 Spotlight Tribe Member: Bubbly, Energetic, and Endearing; Carley Lloyd!

Carley's Story:

"I am 21 years old and I have lived in Riverside my whole life. I currently attend California State University, San Bernardino and am entering my last year of my undergrad in Psychology. I plan on pursuing a Master’s degree in educational counseling where I wish to be a middle school counselor. I love traveling to new places, being outdoors, drinking coffee, cooking, Disneyland, volunteering and being with my friends and family☺"

What Sports did you play?

"I tried about every sport growing up! I was involved with soccer, softball, and even karate. I was not very good at any of those… LOL. In the fifth grade, I finally found a love (and something I was good at) for water polo and swimming which I played through high school."

What is your motivation to workout?

"My motivation to work out is to overall be healthy and strong. Two years ago, I did a backpacking trek in the Himalayas which was the best three days of my life but some of the hardest. During the trek, I realized that there are so many beautiful places on this Earth and I only have one life and one body to see it all. I want to continue to be strong and build my endurance to experience and enjoy all the world."


How does working out make you feel?

"I am excited to work out now whereas before I started I would dread to attend a workout. I always feel recharged and refocused after every workout. I now am able to push myself more, and I realized that I can do more than I ever thought I could which has helped me be more confident in myself."


What are your fitness goals?

"My fitness goals are to attend five workouts a week. I know that I am capable but I need to remain disciplined. I still have a way to go on my different weight loss goals but I am motivated to stay on track with my workouts and clean eating."

How do you make time to workout?

"I have to constantly remind myself that working out is a top priority. I put my workouts in my schedule every week and cannot plan anything in its place. During the school year, it is much more challenging and I choose to sacrifice a few extra hours of sleep so I can attend 5am boot camp. I cannot make any excuses, and I must manage my time wisely so I can be sure to get enough sleep before waking up for a workout."


What have you learned about yourself from working out?

"I have learned that I am stronger than I ever thought before and that I am capable of so much. Ultimately, I believe in myself. I have also learned that exercise helps my mental and emotional well-being as well. The past year, there were many times where I felt anxious or discouraged about school, but after attending a single workout I immediately felt better." 

What milestone have you accomplished?

"I am proud of the weight loss I have accomplished, along with keeping it off. My body percent fat has decreased as I have gained more muscle. There are some exercises that I was not able to do fully when I first started at the village that now I can do which is a huge accomplishment for me."


What would you say to someone on the fence about joining the village?

"Stop making excuses and do it! The support you will receive from both Coach Fatimat and Coach Caylyn, along with the fellow tribe members is incredible! You are stronger than you think. YOU GOT THIS ☺"

We LOVE you Carley! We're so grateful to have you be apart of our tribe! Thank you for sharing your story with us all and inspiring others! Don't forget to show Carley some love by leaving a comment below!

We've all had those moments where we waited too long to eat, and we struggle through a blood sugar crash where the hanger settles in and takes over.  You could feel lightheaded, shaky, and generally unwell -- so keeping your blood sugar stabilized throughout the day is a great way to have sustained energy, feel vibrant, and keep your body functioning optimally.  

Balancing your blood sugar is essential, and the longer you let your blood sugar run wild, the more likely your chances for developing a long-term problem can grow.  So how do you keep your blood sugar stabilized throughout the day? Follow these tips for blood sugar bliss.

1. Eat foods that release energy slowly

Your regime should consist of foods that are low on the glycemic index. In other words, these foods release energy into your bloodstream slowly for more sustainability. Things like vegetables, legumes, berries, nuts, seeds, and whole grains are all excellent choices.

2. Snack healthfully between meals

If you find yourself grouchy after breakfast but before lunch, then it’s time to start packing yourself a healthy snack that will keep you feeling balanced and satisfied until your lunch break. A protein-rich serving of almonds is an excellent choice, and exceptionally easy to carry along with you. Choose wisely, and you’ll find the foods you eat to keep you adequately fueled for your day.

3. Add protein to each meal

When you eat protein, it helps signal to your brain that you’re full, making it one of the most important foods to eat. Protein can be found in many different foods eggs, almonds, broccoli, leafy greens, tuna, and lentils, to name a few.  Making sure each meal has protein will help you stay satisfied longer without those hunger pangs setting in too quickly.

4. Don’t skip breakfast

Your body needs a good start each morning. Fuel it up right by eating a healthy breakfast that includes a healthy fat and a protein. A good example is a hardboiled egg and an avocado. This combination keeps your blood sugar levels stabilized and starts your day off right.

5. Stay away from sugar and refined carbs

Anything with sugar and refined carbs is something you should be avoiding. Processed foods are lurking everywhere, and fill the majority of our grocery stores.  It can be challenging to ditch these entirely, but start one step at a time. You'll notice a heap of difference once you fully get processed foods out of your kitchen, and things will taste ten times better, too!

6. Say no to soda

Diet or regular, sodas are filled with sugar, preservatives and artificial sweeteners.  These chemically-created beverages are horrible for your health and will cause spikes in your blood sugar. While artificial sweeteners don’t contain glucose, they still produce the same effects on your blood sugar just like sugar does. Instead, make your own fruit-infused water to curb sweet cravings without harming your body, or crack open a LaCroix.

By watching out for these common blood sugar pitfalls, you can keep your body functioning optimally and feeling fantastic.

Do you struggle with keeping your blood sugar stabilized throughout the day?  My experience has been that of my husband as he is diabetic and his blood sugar can sometimes go up high. He uses strength training and cutting back on carbs to bring down the sugar level.

Come visit us at our new location if you have not done so! We are at 17072 Van Buren Blvd, Riverside-Near where old “Tuesday Morning” used to be and in the same complex as Stater Brothers and My Learning Studio.

I'm certainly no stranger to the occasional urge to rip open a chocolate bar, go through the drive-thru window, or dive into a bag of my favorite chips -- and I'll bet you aren't a stranger to this either.  The occasional indulgence isn't anything to be alarmed about, but if you find yourself licking the remnants of these indulgences off your fingers on a more regular basis, you’ll need to practice some control to get in charge of those cravings. The goal here is to be in charge of your cravings, not have them be in charge of you. 

Here’s how to handle these cravings and get back in the saddle for your healthy routine.

Get to the root of your cravings

Take note of when you’re going for these foods. Is it boredom? Did you have a horrible day at work? Is it that time of the month? All of these things can be a trigger for your cravings. Try to be mindful of them once you identify them. Next time the craving comes around, stop and evaluate your surroundings, noticing what may be triggering this craving.  Restrain yourself 80% of the time and enjoy the things you crave 20% of the time. Eating healthy the majority of the time will lower your cravings drastically, anyway.

Try to eat more often

It may sound counterintuitive, but if you eat more often, you’ll keep your blood sugar levels on an even keel. Pack a healthy snack to enjoy mid-morning and another to have mid-afternoon. By doing so, you’ll feel fuller longer and be less likely to head to the office vending machine.

Slow down when eating

Mindful eating is the best way to keep from overeating, whether you’re eating a nutritious meal or splurging. Your brain doesn’t get the message that your stomach is full for about 20 minutes.  Therefore, slowly chew your food. Savor the flavors. You’ll find you won’t need to eat your entire portion, nor will you feel like you have room for dessert.

Do something else

Cravings never last forever. Eventually, you’ll forget about your craving if you distract yourself. Go for a walk, read a book, message your friends, put up the laundry or involve yourself with anything else that you can think of. Before you know it, you’ll have forgotten about that nagging craving.

Swap smartly

If you really can’t help munching while you are watching a movie, swap out unhealthy options for healthier ones. Choose crispy carrot and celery sticks with hummus or a small serving of mixed nuts. Want something cool, sweet and refreshing? Freeze melon balls to get an ice cream-like experience without the guilt.

Keep your food cravings out of the house

You know the saying “out of sight, out of mind,” right? It’s so true when it comes to food cravings. As much as possible, keep these things out of your home. If you get late-night cravings, you won’t have those things around to binge on, and you’ll be less likely to go out of your way to get them.

Cravings will come and go, but when you're armed with solutions to combat them, you're putting yourself in the position to control the cravings, rather than being controlled by them.  

So, let's get honest here.  I have a strong selective cravings for chocolate bars.  I notice it happens when I am overwhelm or dealing with tough issues. It makes me feel better right away and then crashed later with tears of guilt.

What craving nags you the most?

Hit reply and let me know.

We are having our Grand Re-opening on August 18th, 2018 at 11 am. Come celebrate our new location with us and bring your family and friends. You can reply to RSVP and tell us how many in your party!

One of the best ways to beat the heat this summer is with a refreshingly tasty beverage in hand. Pure water is, of course, the drink of choice and should regularly be consumed to avoid dehydration.  By adding a squeeze of fresh lemon to your water, you can pack even more of a beneficial punch. 

But on those occasions you want a little something extra, or you’re looking for the perfect summer beverage to serve at your weekend gathering, there are some delightfully refreshing options to choose from.  Whether you want to add a dash of rum into your drink or leave it kid-friendly, these drink options are sure to please (and are oh-so-easy to make)

Here are my favorite soothing summer beverages that you can enjoy with or without alcohol for more summer sunshine in your glass with no guilt:

Cheery Cherry 

  • 1 cup organic cherry juice

  • ¾ cup organic orange juice

  • ¼ cup cold filtered water

  • Fresh orange slices

  • Alcohol option: 2 ounces of vodka

Combine all ingredients in a pitcher. Fill glasses with ice and pour the drink mixture in. Garnish with the orange slices. 

Passionate Pineapple Punch

  • 1 cup organic passion fruit juice

  • 1 cup organic pineapple juice

  • ¼ cup fresh-squeezed lime juice

  • ¼ cup coconut water

  • Lime seltzer to taste

  • Lime wheels for garnish

  • Alcohol option: 3 ounces of rum (note: you can use a flavored rum like coconut, mango, or anything else you desire)

Mix everything except the seltzer together in a pitcher. Fill your glasses with ice and pour the contents of the pitcher in. Top off each glass with the seltzer. Add a lime wheel garnish. 

Watermelon Wave

  • 4 cups of watermelon chunks

  • 6 to 8 large basil leaves

  • Pinch of sea salt

  • ¼ teaspoon white wine vinegar

  • 1 quart chilled water

  • Alcohol option: 6 ounces of vodka (regular or watermelon)

Puree the watermelon in your food processor or blender. Season with salt and vinegar, then strain into a pitcher. Add the chilled water (and vodka if you’re using it). Add the basil leaves and stir in. 

Citrus Sangria

And finally, we’ll end with one just for the adults. Sangria is a true summer delight, especially this citrusy version!

  • 1 bottle (750 mL) chilled medium-dry red wine (like a Malbec or Rioja) 

  • 2 cups chilled lime seltzer

  • 1 cup fresh orange juice

  • 2 limes, sliced

  • 2 lemons, sliced

  • 2 oranges, sliced

The hardest part about this drink recipe is waiting! You combine everything into one large pitcher, cover it and chill it until it’s time to serve.

Don't forget to consume a glass of water regularly throughout the day to avoid dehydration in the summer heat.  Eating a lot of water-filled foods can help, too, such as watermelon, cucumbers, celery, etc.

       One of the best parts of summertime is gathering outside with your friends and family to enjoy delicious food and conversation.  The fireflies, warm, dewy air and longer days are the perfect equation for gathering to experience the essence of summer. Cookouts are a staple of summertime, but if you're trying to eat healthy, you may be left munching on the veggie tray as everyone else fills their plate with hotdogs and coleslaw.

       You don't have to be stuck with just the veggie tray.  There are numerous healthy options to choose from during the summer cookout months, so there's no need to be left out of the fun or go home hungry.  

Here are a few of my summer cookout staples...

1. Veggie Burgers

Whether you make them from scratch or buy them pre-made, veggie burgers give you that summer BBQ feel, while avoiding the red meat. These taste great if you put them on a whole grain bun, or even a lettuce wrap if you are gluten sensitive.  Dress it with the typical toppings and condiments, and you won't even notice the difference. Delicious!

2. Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

We all love mashed potatoes, but many don’t like the calories or nutrient profiles of potatoes. You can now get the texture and love of this summertime favorite, for far fewer calories with some mashed cauliflower. Just add some garlic and olive oil for a delicious flavor profile that mimics the real deal.  

3. Sweet Potato “fries”

The perfect companion for your veggie burger!  Skip the regular french fries and lean towards the healthier option -- how about some baked sweet potato ‘fries?’ They have a higher nutrient profile, and since you are baking them, fewer calories!  You can even toss them on the grill for a crispy option to sweet potato fries.

4. Shish Kabobs

Shish kabobs taste great during the summer.  Adding zucchini, squash, red onion and mushrooms make this a deliciously healthy and easy to hold meal. If you desire animal protein for your shish kabobs, try tossing some organic chicken or wild caught shrimp in between your veggie layers.  Drizzle your favorite BBQ sauce on, and you've got yourself a delicious and healthy meal. Here's a tip to not over-cooking or under-cooking your veggies/meats. Place all your meat on one kabob, all your mushrooms on one kabob, all your zucchini on one kabob and so on so that you can control how long each kabob is on the grill!

Eating healthy through the summer months does not have to be hard.  With just a few minor adjustments, you can turn pretty much any dish into a delicious and healthy meal without skimping out on the flavor at all! So give these a try at your next BBQ, you will not be the only one who enjoys these dishes.

We're so excited to share with you the personal story about this months' spotlight member of our tribe, Nancy Yavorsky. We love having her as apart of our tribe, her dedication with living a healthier lifestyle is encouraging! Here is our June 2018 Spotlight Tribe Member: ​Sassy, Fabulous and Fearless Nancy Yavorsky! 

​Nancy's Story:

"I’m from Port Arthur, Texas, a major petroleum refining city in southeast Texas about 90 miles east of Houston. Three generations of my family have been involved in the petro chemical business over the years. I attended a small liberal arts college nearby and enjoyed a 12-year career in state and local government planning in Austin, El Paso and Houston. I met my husband a structural design engineer, in Houston where we both worked on a rail transit project. He designed the tunnel and some stations for Houston Metro; I worked on parts of the Environmental Impact Statement. We have one son, born in Houston. Moving really began after he was born, first to Dallas, then Washington, DC, Los Angeles, Cairo, Egypt for a couple of years, and back eventually to Rancho Cucamonga. We made other business trips to Europe but I guess my favorite was Singapore. Sorry this is long and boring, but I wasn’t born yesterday and have totaled up quite a bit of mileage over the years."

What Sports do you enjoy?

"The only sports I played were whatever ones were going on in my neighborhood at the time. I am definitely not athletic and spent all my spare time in school in band and music. I used to be into football since it is the dominant sport in Texas, but I’m not very interested any more. I did do some races several years ago, walk/run, maybe 12 half marathons and three marathons – Honolulu, Texas and LA. I trained with the Loma Linda Lopers and still stay in touch with many of them. I love the party atmosphere at the races and the medals. Not sure if I will do any more long distance races, but they sure were fun. And very good for the ego!"

​What is your motivation to workout?

​"I have always liked the energy I have when I’m up and moving every day. I spent countless hours and logged many miles over the years simply walking our dogs. I decided I needed to focus on strength training these past years so that’s what I chose to do. Incidentally, an unexpected benefit to working out has been building the extra strength I need to race my car. I have been on three California racetracks with instructors from Speed Ventures and I realized immediately that it takes great strength to control the car, especially core and upper body strength to make the sharp turns at high speeds."

​How does working out make you feel?

​​​​"Powerful, energetic, healthy and definitely badass!"

What are your fitness goals?

​"Keep getting stronger and more flexible every day. And eat food. Really high octane food so I can keep up with my high performance car."

​What do you do to make sure you have time for your workouts?

​"Schedule workouts before any other activities. I am very fortunate to have a flexible schedule, so workouts can come first. I know it can be very difficult to find time when you are raising a family and their needs come first."

​What is something positive you’ve learned about yourself since you started regularly exercising?

​"Exercise improves my emotional well being and the good feelings affect every other part of my life. I have learned also to take personal losses much better, especially the loss of my husband two years ago to cancer. I am convinced that if I did not have the great exercise and support I am getting from Fatimat and Caylyn I would be curled up on the couch in fetal position most days."

What kind of milestones have you accomplished & what were the results?

​"I am very happy about losing weight and keeping it off, building muscle and really proud that I don’t need blood pressure medications and antidepressants any more. I really don’t like taking drugs."

​What would you say to someone on the fence about joining the Village?

​"Jump off right now and join up! It’s a no-brainer!!"
