The exercises and routine you choose should be based on the goals you are trying to achieve.

Simply throwing a bunch of exercises together and hoping for the best isn't the best approach. Your goals should dictate why you are doing a specific exercise and what benefit it will bring.

How will the exercise and/or routine get you closer to your goals. Also, is that routine best for you to be doing at this stage in your fitness journey.

Make sure you don't risk injury simply because you are trying to push too hard. Train smarter first and then you can train harder.

To often I see people following extreme diets...

They see short term results and then quickly lose it all and then some.

Then shortly after they try it again to only continue this yo-yo dieting cycle.

Stop looking for extremes, like cutting out entire food groups from your nutrition. Or doing some crazy workouts that absolutely burns you out.

You can lose weight, get in shape and see great results without being absolutely miserable...

You just need the right system in place to keep you consistent.

I'm here if you want to talk.

Whether your kids are going to be going to school in-person or virtually, it’s time to get back into some sort of routine, especially when it comes to breakfast! My #1 tip is to make nutritious make-ahead breakfasts so that mornings can be a lot smoother, like these Baked Apple Oatmeal Bars! 

These Baked Apple Oatmeal Bars are a cross between oatmeal and a granola bar. They have no added sugar and use @a2milkcanada, apples, and dates. 

I like to use @a2milkcanada in recipes (and to serve alongside for breakfast) to avoid digestive discomforts that come from drinking milk that has A1 proteins. A2 milk comes from cows that naturally produce only A2 protein, and can help alleviate digestive issues. 

The kids have been loving these Baked Apple Oatmeal Bars with a side of a2 Milk™! It is a good alternative to making oatmeal in the morning, without the prep! 

Here’s how to make Baked Apple Oatmeal:
Makes: 8-12 servings
Ingredients:

- 5 medjool dates (soaked)
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup shredded apple (about 2 apples)
- ⅓ cup melted coconut oil
- ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- ½ cup sliced almonds
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1 tsp cinnamon 
- 1 ½ cup @a2canada milk 
- ½ tsp baking powder 

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350oF. 
2. Chop or puree soaked dates. Add to a large bowl with eggs, apple, and coconut oil. Mix well.
3. To the bowl add coconut, almonds, oats, cinnamon, and baking powder. Mix well. Add the  a2 Milk™ and mix until well combined. 
4. Use a mini loaf pan, muffin pan, or square pan. Line with parchment paper or liners and pour batter into pan. Bake for 35 minutes, until golden brown. 

Check out  my stories to see how to make this easy breakfast recipe for your busy mornings!

One major reason you are snacking at night is because you are over compensating for the lack of food throughout the day.

Once the busy part of your day is done and you are free, the hunger starts to kicks in. So even after dinner you start to snack to make up for the calories you didn't have throughout the day.

The problem is that most snacks are very dense in calories and add up very quickly. This then quickly leads to weight gain.

You'll think you don't eat that much, but in fact from a calories perspective, you are.

To change that, you need to start being more mindful of breakfast and lunch. Prioritizing your nutrition will not just help with weight loss, but also your energy and overall well being.

Are you guilty of snacking at night?

Our summer harvest subhanallah!

This year was quite challenging to keep up with my garden. From full weekends to really hot days and the 🐰🐰 having a daily vegan buffet, I haven't been able to give my garden the love and attention it needs. I stepped out today to see the situation and see what we can harvest and was so blown away by the abundance subhanallah:

Kale, rainbow carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, eggplant, beets (I also had 2 watermelon that animals got to before me).

The girls loved harvesting the carrots, check out our stories to see what it looks like!

Social media can sometimes be the worst place to find motivation...

The vast majority of people only post their highlights and not the years of work required to achieve what they have.

You will see people accomplishing amazing feats, but it's important to understand the years of hard work behind it. Also, the amount of times they failed and the work required to get to that level.

So focus on yourself. Because everyone is beginner at one point or another. Even me when it comes to the gym, there was a time when I had no idea what I was doing and couldn't lift heavy at all. I worked hard and years later I can lift some really good weight.

But it didn't happen overnight...

#focusonyourself

It's a new week, so start it strong!

Took my very first horse back riding lessons with my 6 yr old...

You don't realize how big and powerful a horse is until you ride one and attempt to control it. It was an amazing experience and even better seeing how great my daughter did.

I told her beforehand about making the intention of doing to follow a Sunnah and how it is encouraged. Insha'Allah this can become a dad and daughter activity we can continue to do for years to come...

Also going to try getting the 4yr old on a horse next time as well.

With our daughters we try introducing new activities that are both physically demanding and adventurous. Being fit doesn't just mean being in the gym all day. But rather finding ways to increase your physical activities.

So the goal is to continue to find activities they'll enjoy so they continue to stay active as they age Insha'Allah...

Ever taken horse back riding lessons?

Break it down and stop complicating it. 3 workout days isn't the entire 3 days. It's just 1 hour per each workout day. That's it...

Now this doesn't mean you sit around the rest of the week and do nothing. You still need to add cardio a few times a week. But again, it doesn't need to be complicated. It can be anything from hiking, walking, jogging, biking or even playing sports.

The goal is to raise your level physical activity. Keep it simple and enjoy the process.

It won't consume your week or even change your schedule much. You can even start with 45 minutes at each workout. Just start and keep it simple.

If you need help with accountability, @nutritionbynaz and I always here to help.

It is a known fact that children have 2 stomaches - a limited size one for their meals and a mega-expandable one for snacks 😂.

It can be pretty frustrating to have kids barely finish their meals but ask for snacks all day!

However, snacks when done right can be a great way to fuel your little ones.

Here are some guidelines to help you as the parent take ownership of snacking:

1. Have set meal and snack times. For example, they cannot snack 20 minutes after their main meal. Atleast 1.5-2 hours works well for most kids. When kids get used to this timing, they are more likely to finish their meal plates.
2. Differentiate between snack foods and treat foods. This doesn't mean you should label unhealthy items as "bad" or junk food. Instead, teach your kids about foods that will help them grow and become strong vs treat or sometimes foods.
3. Re-evaluate what is in your pantry. This often an easy to reach area for kids and packed with not the healthiest options. If it's in your home, you and your kids will likely eat it!
4. Have a designated day for treat foods. We usually do jummah treats and they have a treat with their grandparents too.
5. Don't police your child's food. If it's available at home and they are eating it, you should avoid using negative words to get them to eat less of these foods. Instead, you need to adjust what is available (i.e. healthier options and using more positive language).

The goal is to have a nourished child who has a positive relationship with food.

What are some things you do to help your child make healthier snack choices? What are your struggles when it comes to your kids' snack times?

The difference, the latter may involve a devastating situation no one's wants to be in.

For example, the amount of people that get diabetes simply because of their habits.

It's to a point where it's become an epidemic for kids. Kids are developing type 2 diabetes because of their lack of activity and nutritious food. Now that's not the child's fault. It's the environment you develop at home.

It's why it's so important to take care of your health and fitness. Your kids are watching and following. But regardless of kids, why put yourself in a situation where you become dependent on medication.

Start now and make it a lifestyle.

You don't need to be in the gym 5 or 6 times a week at the gym. 3x a week or even 2 can make a huge difference. And eating healthy isn't tough, just stop looking for short cuts.

Add more veggies to your food and eat smaller portions. The fiber from the veggies will make you feel fuller. Increase your protein and make sure to limit snacks.

They key will always be having a good system in place, so make sure to take some time out to plan it out.

If you need the right system to help you get results, DM me or @nutritionbynaz and we can over on how we can help.

There's no secret food that will magically get you results.

The secret ingredient to losing weight is lowering your daily caloric intake. The secret to building muscle is increasing your protein intake and strength training.

It really is that simple. You'll find lots of fancy marketing out there geared towards wanting to confuse you. But always remember, if a specific food or even a supplement for that matter, is promising to burn fat, they have lied and you should run from them.

The key is creating the right habits and understanding how to eat. Not adding some magical ingredient or eliminating an entire food group.

That's how @nutritionbynaz and I work with our clients at getting them long term results. Because we don't just help them achieve their goals, but rather show them how to make it into a lifestyle without feeling like your missing out on life.

If you want to sign up for a call, DM or @nutritionbynaz to see if we'd be a good fit for one another.

Introducing our Mermaid themed cake!

This year's cake request from my 6 year old was to do a *Mermaid* theme. I actually had a blast making the cake with Khadijah and her 3.5 year old sister because they were so helpful! They made all the fondant creatures and were so patient over the 2 days it took us to make it! Check out my stories to see the step by step process.

I hope through these cake making experience my girls build precious memories, learn the value of hard work and enjoying the outcome, and also develop a positive relationship with food.

You would think after making this cake they would be devouring it but instead they ate a slice ( + some fondant decals) and then thought about everyone else they could share their pretty cake with. And that's what you call balance ❤.
