THANKSGIVING SWEET POTATO CHUNKS 🍠🍂😋
This dish is super easy without being something unoriginal that everyone usually takes as a side. I like to say that it’s a little preview into dessert. It’s a sweet side that compliments all the other Thanksgiving flavors without overpowering them.
This dish can easily be made for a larger crowd by doubling or tripling the recipe. I promise, these will be a big hit for you and your guests. It can also be made vegan by using a vegan butter.
Full recipe is on the blog. Link is in my bio + stories. In short, you will cover the sweet potato chunks in a glaze made with ghee (I used @fourthandheart vanilla ghee), light brown sugar, maple syrup, cinnamon, and a dash of salt. Perfectly sweet and delicious! Happy Sunday and happy Thanksgiving meal preppin’! #realrawandradiant

As you can see I love exercising in the outdoors. I had just been for a walk and felt I was overdressed hence feeling It was such a beautiful day the timing was right to stripping off and doing some press-ups. Watch out for a couple of two finger press-ups. The other thing I would like to say during the day before upto the walk was feeling very Catarrhish. Just shows how a brisk walk and crisp sea air can change not only one’s mindset but improve our health. Most certainly I had lost my attachments to how I had been feeling. #pressups#fitness#outdoors#mindset#walk#outdoorfitness#exercise#strongbody#ultrafit#fitman

Here’s a little #insidescoop on my routine. On a daily basis I track my:
👉🏻 Body Fat %
👉🏻 Total Steps
👉🏻 Macros (Fats, Carbs, Protein)
These are the 4 major factors that I track to gauge my health & overall activity levels. Now, is it necessary to track all of these things? Absolutely not. I use these numbers to help me better understand myself.
If you scroll over, you can see my numbers for the Week of November 12th.
Even though there are a lot of figures on that spreadsheet, I just look at the averages from week to week to really dictate my training or nutrition protocols.
For example, my average caloric intake for the week were 3,169 calories. That’s about 400 calories above average for me. If I were to keep at this pace for the next few weeks, I would expect to put on 1-3 pounds over that period.
This can also help dictate when it’s time to reduce my calories to put me in a deficit. I would typically stay in a higher phase for more than 4-6 weeks, or until I feel that I am stalling out in the caloric surplus.
While coaching clients & for myself, these are the 4 major things that I track.
Now, tracking these things is not typically sustainable long-term, but they sure can help you better understand your body & how it reacts to your activity levels & nutrition.
Also, my latest blog post is now OUT! I talk about how more exercise is NOT always better, & how a common theme I see in this fitness space is guys & girls working out twice a day while eating nothing to shed weight. That is NOT healthy. The link to the blog is in the bio!
Do you track anything on a daily basis? Steps? Diet? Weight? Let me know below! ⬇️
Back lever coming along really nicely even without much focused training! Just goes to show how effective compound movements are in calisthenics in developing multiple muscle groups! Also helps I lost some weight hahaha 💪
Feeling good with some muscleups right after setting a new pullups PB of 33! Really pleased with how clean these are compared to a few months ago! Sadly, my audacious attempt at the straddle planche to finish the combo didn't quite work out hahaha 🤦♂️💪 Jon
