Some words about SUMMER'S BLOG

I love peanut butter, avocado and oatmeal. Not together of course, but nearly any recipe that calls for these ingredients I'll probably enjoy. I have the misfortune of living with some food sensitivities but the extreme fortune of knowing what those sensitivities are - gluten (only mild, thank goodness), nightshades, lactose, and refined sugar. I'm not a formally trained chef, but I love cooking (and eating!) delicious, guilt-free food. I'm a fitness model, certified nutrition coach, trainer and an IFBB pro bikini athlete... and I eat 6 times a day. When I'm not in the kitchen preparing something extraordinary, I'm - in the gym, rushing off to an audition, at a photo shoot, studying nutrition, or planning a vacation. Hope you enjoy my site! For nutrition consultations or more information on training, contact me at summerwhitefitness@gmail.com

Yesterday was moving day, as my short term lease (that I luckily secured whilst in India) was up. The all-familiar packing scramble had only begun the day before, as I’ve come to  realize I work faster under pressure.  To my

I apologize for the lack of posts this past week. I was busy having a phenomenal weekend.  Truth be told, I felt a bit of separation anxiety and guilt, but I justified my actions by reminding myself that I need

What is it with these weeks that seem to plow through you like a semi-truck?  Are the days getting shorter, and the work getting longer? Am I slowing down in my old age? I can’t tell if it’s the constant

I’ve been trying out a new breakfast strategy, incorporating the idea of food combining. According to the food-combining diet, starches and protein should be eaten separately. This is because starches are thought to be best absorbed when in an alkaline

As a kid I was smitten with all things candy. Nerds, Skittles, Pop Rocks, Snickers, Twix, and as you already know, Reese’s peanut butter cups. I’d eat them every chance I got, but strangely enough never seemed to gain weight!
