Ok, so this is the blog post I get asked for again & again. I’m not going to give you some faddy diet that will help you lose a stone, only to find it again next month. Why? Because it’s a waste of both of our time & it’s bad for you. That’s why. Instead, I will give you my tips, rules & advice to living your life, & losing weight along the way. 1. I’m going to go out on a limb here & say that as you’re reading my blog, you like the internet. That’s your goal. 2. 3. 4. You should start eating at around a 3 or a 4. If you wait until 2 or 1, your body will go into starvation mode which means when you do finally eat, your body will hold on to every bit of fat it can get it’s hands on incase you decide to starve it again. If you accidentally get to this level of hunger, take it slow. If you’re actively trying to lose weight, stop at 5. You’ll soon train your body to eat what’s just right for you. 5. Sweets/Candy Your body’s lacking Chromium, carbon phosphorus, sulphur, Tryptophan. 6. 8. 9. 10.

Epic Crispy Quinoa Burgers Topped with Sweet Potato Fries, Beer Caramelized Onions + GruyereWhere do I even begin? These burgers have so much going on. Hence the longest name I have ever posted and will hopefully ever post….hopefully! I am going to get so much flack for that title, but I don’t even care. Oh and if you can believe it, I actually left something out. Alright, let’s just start with the main idea for these quinoa burgers. I wanted to create a quinoa burger that would actually rival the typical beef burger. I know you are thinking it’s just not possible, and trust me, I totally thought the same thing. So I started with that base, but swapped the regular quinoa with red quinoa, took out the buffalo sauce and added some seasonings and cheese. From here my idea of an epic burger just grew and grew. Oh and if you are wondering, the Epic Burger is actually a thing up here in my very snowy and cold mountain town. My brothers wait all year for that burger. It’s a Christmas Day only Burger. Oh and yes, they snowboard on both Thanksgiving and Christmas day. The fried egg.
