About Kulae

Last week I posted for my Shape Up groups some of my favorite smoothie recipes.  They are not only delicious but a perfect blend of protein, carbs and healthy fats.  

When I first start working with clients often times they say

"I eat very clean: I have a smoothie for breakfast......"  WOAH, stop right there!  "What's in it?"

is my next question and the list gets SOOOO long: honey, agave nectar, chia, flax, coconut oil, TONS of fruit, milk, yogurt.  Basically its a mish-mosh of whatever was in house without really understanding how to create a balanace.  None of the above ingredients are bad, it is just the quantity of these items that really is important.

What I generally find is that most people have a mason jar (because it is so hip to drink your smoothie out of a mason jar) full of carbs and fats.

If your goal is weightloss you may want to consider to add more veggies instead of fruit.  As much as fruit has amazing phytonutrients in it, it is also high in sugar. (Have you read my blog post on CARBS?)   Also, add some good quality protein in there: greek yogurt, egg whites or a protein powder. (Have you read my blog post on PROTEIN?)

Here are my favorite smoothie recipes:

Banana-Matcha-Spinach Smoothie

(1 Lean Protein, 1 Fruit, 1 Healthy Fat)

2 C baby spinach
1/2 C water
1/2 C unsweetened almond milk
1/2 frozen banana
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2 T chia seed
1/2 t matcha powder

Kale-Cherry-Chocolate Smoothie

(1 Lean Protein, 1 Fruit, 1/2 Starchy Carb)

1 C kale
1/2 C frozen cherries
1 C unsweetened almond milk
1 scoop chocolate protein powder

Vanilla-Pineapple-Banana Smoothie

(1 Lean Protein, 1 Fruit, 1 Healthy Fat, 1/2 Starchy Carb)

1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/4 frozen banana
1/4 C frozen pineapple chunks
1/4 of an avocado
1 C unsweetened almond milk

Banana-Coconut-Green Tea Smoothie

(1 Lean Protein, 1 Fuit, 1 Healthy Fat)

1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/4 C light coconut milk
1/4 C heavily steeped green tea, cooled
1/4 t vanilla extract
1/4 frozen banana

Blueberry-Lime Smoothie

(1 Lean Protein, 1 Fruit, 1 Starchy Carb)

1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 C unsweetened almond milk
1 t stevia
10 fresh mint leaves
Juice of 1/2 lime
1/2 C frozen blueberries

Directions: Place ingredients in your blender and turn it on!  I LOVE my Cuisinart Blender. Because I am clearly not hip, I pour it into a tumbler.  I am obsessed with these Aladdin Tumblers right now because not only do they have fun straws, but they have a leak proof top and you can unscrew the whole thing and actually get your hand inside there to clean it!

For my Shape Up group members you will see what each smoothie counts towards for your Food Log.

Hello Everyone!

I'm Kate, the Marketing Director here at Kulae!  I'm excited to announce a new blog segment, "Kate does Chatarunga" where I'll be going around to Boston studios trying out their yoga and fitness classes and talking about them here on the blog.  Here at Kulae, we want to bring some exposure to all the wonderful boutique studios around Boston in the spirit of our #KarmasReal mantra.  I hope you enjoy the posts and are inspired to go out and try some new locations yourself!  

First up, Core Fusion Yoga accompanied by the Grass Gypsys at Exhale Spa in the Back Bay.

Last week was a bit of a doozy.  I had gotten back from my bachelorette party in Ann Arbor (my alma mater was U of M so we decided to go to a football game and re-live the good ol days) and was feeling a little under the weather because, well, my body just can't handle college extracurricular activities like it used to.  I decided to give myself a little break from my daily pre-wedding workouts and took a few days off.  Going to Exhale on Thursday snapped me back into my routine.

10/01/2015 was at one point one of "those" 4 letter words.

When most people hear this word they think only about Starchy Carbs: crackers, pastas and bread. BUT all veggies, fruits and even legumes fall into the carb category. AND carbs are our friends!! There was a huge low carb fad for a while where people ate very carb restricted diets in hopes to lose weight. I am not saying this type of diet is not good for some people, but when you are participating in an exercise program such as Shape Up you want to be sure you have ample energy.

Carbohydrates provide the body with glucose, which is converted to energy used to support bodily functions and physical activity.  What's most important is the quality of the carbohydrate.

Good quality sources of carbohydrates are unprocessed whole grains, vegetables, fruits and beans. 

This type of carbohydrate promotes good health by delivering vitamins, minerals, fiber, and a host of important phytonutrients. If you are in my Shape Up program refer to the Fruits, Veggies and Starchy Carbs list for more good quality options.

Nutrient Timing

You may be wondering why the timing of the Starchy Carbs is important. In my Shape Up program I suggest the first meal of the day and post workout meals include Starchy Carbs: 

For the morning meal you have just spent 6-8 hours (hopefully you are all getting your beauty sleep) fasting while you were asleep. You need this portion of Starchy Carb to help satiate you, help you feel full and at this point your glucose tolerance is at its highest.

For the post workout meal your body is primed and ready to absorb these nutrients back in for recovery and energy replenishment.

WHY fruits only in the am?? I suggest fruit in the morning only because fruit is made up of both glucose and fructose. The glucose portion is great, it helps fuel the body, its the fructose portion that can be problematic if consumed in a high volume. It can actually lead to increased cravings, increased bacterial growth in your gut and can lead to inflammation among other things. Also, because it is higher in sugar, eating it earlier in the day gives you the time to use it as energy as opposed to storing it as fat.

Yoga Towel    
This is wonderful when doing Bikram. It was absorbent and non-slippery. I would love another! Highly recommended. - Debra P

kulae hot yoga matAll lines of our tpECOmat™ are 100% biodegradable, 100% recyclable, and contain no PVC, latex, cadmium, lead or rubber (that means no allergies). The majority of our eco-friendly yoga mats are dual layer constructed, providing two color options and two distinct, grippy surfaces for you to choose from - all in one mat. Our eco mats are made of eco-conscious TPE using closed cell technology, which means that bacteria and germs cannot get "trapped" in the mat, as is the case with most natural rubber mats. You will get the grip of a traditional "sticky" mat without the smell, the heavy carrying weight and lingering odors found in traditional rubber/PVC mats. 

Not only have we built the finest yoga mat on the market with our tpECOmat™ family of mats, but we have also created a one-of-a-kind hot yoga mat with our patented Elite Hot Hybrid. Our Elite Hot Hybrid hot yoga mat combines the function and support of a traditional yoga mat with the absorbability of our thirstiest towel. Made of environmentally friendly, ECO PER and Bamboo Microfiber, this mat is free of the 6 most harmful phthalates and is sure to be the standard by which all hot yoga mats are measured.
