Whether you're thinking ahead to #MeatlessMonday or simply want a healthy lunch this weekend, we're craving something a little sweet--and a little spicy.
At the top of our list are the incredibly delicious (and surprisingly healthy) Sweet Potato Burritos! Don't worry, though, as they're not too sweet thanks to being spiced-up with SAAS Original Hot Sauce and some cumin! Plus, they're diet-friendly (bikini season is just around the corner!) and filling thanks to the black beans and whole-wheat tortillas. Yum! Excuse us while we have one, too.

The most important meal that I eat is after my workout! Your muscles are literally starving for nutrition post work out! So, the meal you eat after is very important for building muscle and replenishing your energy. And the meal you eat at this time is the most important for building muscle and replenishing energy sources.
Exercise depletes your amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein and it’s important to have chicken (I don’t eat meat, only fish), fish or eggs after a workout.

Health halos are the seemingly angelic snacks that tease us with their promises of low-fat and sugar-free heavenly bliss. What happens when you purchase one of these tempting treats? Normally, after a few more than the recommended amount, they leave you asking for forgiveness.
When given the choice of a regular meal and a low-fat meal, obviamente your instinct is to choose the latter. Is this the best option for you though? The health halo effect can often lead to over-eating from the caloric misconception and item labeling.
