When I first set out on my experiment in Paleo eating, breakfast was the toughest meal for me to navigate. As a lover of easy on-the-run breakfasts like overnight oatmeal and yogurt with granola, I knew I was going to have to make a change in my morning routine to stay in line with the Paleo lifestyle’s guidelines. While I have reintroduced dairy, gluten, and legumes into my diet, this cavewoman-approved breakfast continues to be a staple in my weekday routine.

Rich in omega-3 fatty acids and protein, this low-carb, 335-calorie breakfast takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and feels like I’ve treated myself to a beautiful brunch at a neighborhood hot spot. It will fill you up, fuel your morning, and keep you satisfied until lunch time rolls around.

Paleo Breakfast Bowl

Ingredients

1 teaspoon ghee

2 fresh eggs


2 ounces wild smoked salmon (roughly 2 thin slices)


1/2 cup arugula


1/4 avocado, diced


Squeeze of fresh lemon


Pinch of freshly ground pepper

Directions

  1. Heat your ghee over medium heat and swirl around in a nonstick pan. Slowly put 2 (unscrambled) eggs into the pan and cook until done; about 6 minutes.
  2. While your eggs are cooking, assemble your arugula, avocado, and smoked salmon in a shallow bowl. Squeeze lemon juice over everything and sprinkle with pepper.
  3. Once your eggs are fully cooked, slide them into your bowl, and enjoy immediately.

Every time we see a picture of Cameron Diaz rocking a bikini, we’re wowed by her strong and svelte physique! Her longtime trainer (and KIND Snacks spokesperson) Teddy Bass has one move he recommends to anyone looking to whittle her middle and reshape her core: the trusted plank. While exercises like crunches and reversed curls target specific areas, says Teddy, the beauty of planks is that they work your entire core, from your pelvis to your obliques and all the way up to underneath your rib cage.

There are so many different variations of plank, but Teddy’s go-to pick for beginners is the elbow plank for 30 to 40 seconds. To make the most of your time in this exercise, it’s essential to keep your body in a straight line from your shoulders all the way to your heels and to “stop praying!” According to Teddy, when your hands are together in plank, you’re hindering your body’s ability to achieve a great posture like Cameron’s – a beautiful benefit of this no-equipment move.

Need a refresher? Here’s how to do an elbow plank correctly! Be sure your shoulders are stacked over your elbows and your body is in one straight line.

  • Step your feet out one at a time, coming into a plank position.
  • Contract your abs to prevent your booty from sticking up or sinking.Your spine should be parallel to the floor, with your abs pulling toward the ceiling.
  • Hold for 30 or 40 seconds.

We’re rocking exposed shoulders all Summer long, but strong, sculpted arms are always in style! While a weight-training routine is a great idea for anyone looking to tone up (or lose weight), there are plenty of effective moves you can do anywhere with absolutely no equipment required. Add these bodyweight moves to work your biceps, triceps, and deltoids – and there’s an added bonus: many of these exercises work much more than your arms. Whatever moves you choose, start with 10-15 reps for each exercise.

Increasing your veggie intake by chowing on a huge salad is one of the best ways to cut down on calories and drop pounds, but not all salad toppings are created equal. Choose the wrong ones, and your healthy salad quickly turns into a calorie bomb. For those trying to slim down, add these to your bowl of greens.
