Hey guys so for all of you who don't have healthy options for breakfast, try quinoa with almond milk.
I use about 2/3 cup cooked quinoa with half to one cup of almond milk. I add about half a cup of blueberries and flax seed oil.
This is super good for you. Quinoa is one of the best grains you can put in your body with tons of fiber and protein. I have my black coffee with it. I drink plenty of water in the morning as well, its better to start the day hydrated then hit lunch and feel it.

I will be making my snack and lunch today to bring with me where ever I go. That way I won't be going hungry and be tempted to eat something bad.
Many times we end up eating something bad, even healthy eaters, because we think we don't have time or creativity.Never let that be and excuse.

The Beginning....

The start of a blog.
The title...
The four right chords... meaning the time in your life when everything makes sense, you're hitting your stride you are doing what you love. You are not watching life but participating, your are creating, you're doing.Unlike this blog, there is no template for life. If you don't like something about yourself change it, if you want to try something new do it. fear is the only thing holding you back. If you have beliefs adhere to them, if you have passions be passionate about them.

This blog is about doing. What ever it is that strikes those four right chords for you.

For me, it is being active, loving friends, seeing knew things and being mindful of what I am putting into my body. If you are conscious of what you put into the one body you have, the one body you get your whole life, it will resonate in all facets of your being. I will provide recipes, concepts, nutrition tips, exercise advice, and things that I have seen or done that might inspire or someone to do what they love to hit those four right chords. I help people with menu planning and finding ways to be active better known as working out. I don't look at it as work, I look at it as life. It is what I love and I want to share that with others. People have asked me to post my thoughts, ideas, and recipes that I use everyday so here they are.

Rule number one. There are now "diets".
Rule number two. What you put in your mouth is a choice. No one or thing makes you do it.
Rule number three. Changing what you put in and on your body should not be a short term commitment. It should be a life time. Choose to do something good for yourself permanently.

As more recipes, ideas and concepts are posted, a themes will begin to take shape. Food should be as whole as possible, as close the the earth as you can get and satisfy you. I will do my best to post not only recipes but scientific justification for concepts surrounding nutrition and exercise.

All you can do is your best. If that is changing one thing a week or month that is a step in the right direction. Even thinking about doing something different is progress. If you are unhappy about something change it. If you want to be more active change it. Don't get in your own way.
