Mom’s Pasta Salad

I got so excited when I saw pasta salad on TIU’s weekly meals this week because I LOVE pasta salad. But what I love even more is my mom’s. So when it comes to other recipes, I don’t even bat an eye at them because I’m “brand” loyal to my mama’s. It reminds me of summer, …

Protein Sources

A big question for those not taking protein supplements/powders, or vegetarians/vegans participating in the Ten Day Trim is “What other sources of protein do you recommend instead of ___ or ____?” I’ve always known the “obvious” protein choices; beans, nut butters, raw nuts, eggs, chicken, quinoa…but for vegans, that list is still pretty limited.
