Guest Post: Julia Buckley's Take on #ThisGirlCan

I'm sure many of you have seen the #ThisGirlCan advert on TV. If not, here it is:

The lottery funded campaign aims to encourage women to get involved in sports and feel comfortable doing so without worrying about jiggly wobbly bits or messy sweaty hair. It's sparked quite the discussion on the role the government, schools, sports clubs, etc. can play to help women get active. 

Julia Buckley, author of 'The Fat Burn Revolution' offers her own advice directly to women on what she believes is the heart of the issue...

Guest Post: Julia Buckley's 'No Shizzle, Just Sizzle' Tips for Burning Body Fat

If any of the pills and potions, wacky diets and weird exercise regimes thrust in front of us each new year actually worked do you really think anyone would still be carrying excess fat? Isn’t it time to get real and knuckle down to taking the actions that will truly enable you to shed fad and get into great shape?

Julia Buckley, author of the bestselling fitness book, The Fat Burn Revolution, says:

“I talk straight, and it’s not always what people want to hear. People ask how to get fat off their belly or thighs and when I start saying it’s not possible to “spot reduce”, they’ll sometimes switch off and simply go find someone else who’ll tell them what they want to hear."

Guest Post: Stephanie Dreyer's Tips for Preparing Lunch in 10 Mins or Less

Lunch is my favourite meal of the day.  I am sure the reason for that has a lot to with the fact that it is the only time of day that I receive the indulgence of some alone time to myself.  It is also my least rushed time of day, giving me time to luxuriate in the kitchen and pamper myself with a special meal. Ironically, this is the meal I spend the least amount of time on.  It is also my most delicious meal of the day, most days.  Would you be shocked to know that I typically spend about 10 minutes or less making lunch each day?  And this is what I eat ---> 

Making a healthy, delicious lunch is attainable in 10 minutes.  Follow these tips:

Guest Recipe + eBook Giveaway! Stephanie Dreyer's Vegan Lasagne

I am very excited to be on Beyond The Bathroom Scale today!  As a vegan mom of three, I am always looking for new, healthy recipes to delight my family.  When I adopted a vegan diet almost 5 years ago, there was a steep learning curve to build a new repertoire of recipes and familiarize myself with vegan products.  In my new ebook, VeegMama’s Guide To Going Vegan, I share how to transition to a vegan diet and lifestyle simply and easily, and provide lots of delicious recipes.  

This one is a nod to my Italian roots, where pasta is a mainstay.  This recipe uses De Bole’s Rice Lasagna noodles to make it gluten-free.  It also uses a delicious non-dairy, non-soy cheese by Daiya.  Both products are available at Whole Foods.  I hope you and your family enjoy it!
