Spreading the word…

March 9, 2012

Christa and I went to a Health and Happiness Summit with Dr. OZ and his fabulous guests at Radio City Music Hall in NYC! Dr. Wentz, Dave Wentz, Dr. Northrup and more. Dr. Oz talked about the importance of spreading the word. Be well, be happy, exercise, take a deep breath,  eat your fruits and veges!  It is also so important to take  high quality supplements. Here is a short video of Dr. Oz with Dr. Wentz and Dave Wentz. We are very proud to be part of this great company and to be supporting kid’s health.

Homemade Dark Chocolate Truffles

February 14, 2012

Happy Valentine’s Day!

This is from Elizabeth Rider’s Whole Living Blog. I haven’t made them yet but they look delicious!  Dark chocolate is low in sugar and high in Antioxidants,  so enjoy!

Vegan Dark Chocolate Truffles

Homemade Dark Chocolate Truffles

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours (including time to set)
Yields 8 truffles


  • 1 organic dark chocolate bar, at least 70% cocoa (3.2-3.5 ounces)
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons organic, virgin coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon raw organic agave nectar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons organic prepared coffee
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic vanilla extract (preferable Madagascar vanilla)
  • 1 small pinch fine sea salt, such as Real Salt
  • Organic unsweetened dark cocoa power for sifting, about 1/4 cup

Tip: Use the best quality organic ingredients you an afford. The best quality chocolate will produce the yummiest truffles.

vegan chocolate truffle ingredients

Recipe: Prepare a cup of coffee and reserve 1 1/2 tsp of the coffee (or save 1 1/2 tsp from your morning coffee.) Create a double-broiler with a small pot and glass bowl.* While you’re waiting for the water to boil, cut the chocolate into very small pieces using a sharp knife to help it melt easily. Once the water in the double-boiler is boiling, add the chocolate and stir often with a wooden spoon until it’s melted; this should take about 3 minutes. A double-boiler is recommended instead of a microwave to prevent overcooking the chocolate. (This process is called tempering and prevents the chocolate from seizing; the chocolate should remain shiny the entire time. If it starts to look dull or matte it’s overcooked.)

Once the chocolate is almost all melted, add coconut oil and keep stirring until the mixture is well combine and smooth. Once smooth, remove the glass bowl to the counter and add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl. Stir well, another 2 minutes, until all ingredients are well combine and smooth. At this point, the mixture should be cool enough to taste – but be very careful not to burn yourself. Taste the mixture to check your flavorings.

Put the bowl in the refrigerator for about 1 hour (more if needed) until the chocolate is set. It will be firm but easily scoop-able – a.k.a. the texture of a truffle. If it becomes too firm, just set it out at room temperature for 10 minutes. Scoop teaspoon size balls from the mixture and set on a parchment-lined baking sheet. A melon baller works perfect for this, or use a teaspoon and your fingers to shape the balls for a more rustic look. Coconut oil melts on contact with your fingers so using your hands and fingers might get a little messy – just be sure to work quickly so the truffles don’t melt too much.

Once all truffles are on the sheet, dust them all with the unsweetened cocoa powder using a sieve. Place the truffles back in the refrigerator at least 2 more hours to set and keep in the refrigerator until served. They will start to melt after about an hour at room temperature so it’s important to keep them in the refrigerator until ready to serve. They’ll keep in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.

*Create a double-boiler by placing a tightly-fitting tempered glass bowl on top of a pot of  boiling water. The water should not touch the bowl; the steam from the water will heat the bowl and melt the chocolate. It’s important to use tempered glass to it doesn’t shatter.

Happy Birthday to Susan Abbot!

Big News…We are moving!

In addition to the Fields being an ideal central location, the move will also allow us
to lower our prices which is always well received.

The 6 AM will continue to be at Test Sports Clubs and will be in great hands with
Keith, Adam and Dan.

 Join us over at Fair Haven Fields beginning on January 30th @ 9:00.

The Best,

Are you feeling a bit bloated…sugar overload?

December 30, 2011

 Did you enjoy your Holidays… yummy cookies, cocktails,  delicious dinners with wine? Are you ready to get back on track?
Do you find yourself unable to control your eating, especially when it comes to
sugar and refined carbohydrates?

Are you ready to let go of the bloated, puffy feeling that seems to
accompany you everywhere you go?

When the clock strikes 3:00pm do you find yourself in an afternoon haze,
unable to focus, get the energy to do anything, and wishing you could either
take a nap or stuff your face with sugar and caffeine (which you often
actually do?)

After dinner do you continue to open the refrigerator and pantry doors,
never feeling satisfied and continuing to eat until your head hits the
pillow at night?

If you answered YES to one or more of the questions above, We can help you.

It’s time to RESET.

“Weight loss is entirely possible any time you make a resolution to lose
weight. Keeping your blood sugar stable and avoiding deprivation are absolutely
essential to success. There are many, many ways to do this. But as a physician,
I’ve rarely seen a program as easy and effective as RESET.” – Dr. Christiane

Make a resolution that sticks.

So many people make a decision to make a change at the beginning of the year.
Yet so many of us find ourselves going back to our old ways within a week or
two. This year we are going to help you make a resolution that sticks.

RESET is a clinically-proven, 5-day high-fiber cleanse that actually RESETs
metabolism and ELIMINATES your sugar/carb cravings as you:

* detox

* boost your mood

* increase your energy level

* balance your hormones

* improve your sleep

* increase clarity

* and release fat!

Doctors and health-care practitioners worldwide such
as women’s health pioneer, Christiane Northrup, M.D. and nutritional
medicine expert, Ray Strand, M.D, recommend RESET.

Release unwanted weight.

People who do the RESET program loose between 5 and 10 pounds during the
5-day, high-fiber cleanse. It’s a great way to lose excess
weight gained during the holidays or kick-start a larger weight loss goal. We
will hold your hand through implementing healthy lifestyle habits that result
in weight loss.

Get rid of your carb and sugar cravings.

RESET retrains your body using the principles of low-glycemic eating so that
you no longer crave sugar and refined carbohydrates.

Join us to ensure your success.

Studies show that when it comes to losing weight and creating lasting change in
our habits and lifestyle, partnering with even one other person increases your
chances of success dramatically. We are putting together a team of people who

love to have you on the team. If something deep inside you is saying YES [1]let
us know right now .Join our team today and make a commitment to making this
year’s resolution a lifetime resolution.

Keep it simple. Keep it easy.

RESET doesn’t require juicing, fasting, intricate food preparation, starving
yourself, being in the gym for hours at a time, or paying thousands of dollars.
It’s 5-days of low-glycemic meal and snack replacements, lots of water, and
fruits and vegetables. It comes in a box with everything you need to release
weight and eliminate your cravings successfully (just add water, fruits, and
vegetables.) It’s so simple you can’t screw it up. We promise.

Charity Workout on December 17th!

December 8, 2011

While I was at the dog park with my friend Jean Lee I met a woman named Nina Seigelstein and her dog Otis. Nina is an Obstetrician/Gynecologist and she also happens to be the doctor who delivered Jean’s children by way of cesarean section. She explained that if Jean Lee had lived in Sierra Leone, Africa, she would not have been able to have had a cesarean section as there is a complete lack of obstetrical care. Both Jean and her daughter would very well have died. I think of my son Thomas who was born with so many birth defects and how blessed we are to live in this country. He wouldn’t have survived in Sierra Leone Africa.  I feel very honored to have met Nina and OutdoorFit is happy to support her foundation.

Nina is working to prevent these sorts of needless deaths from childbirth by building a Maternity Ward in Sierra Leone. She has started a foundation called One World Women’s Health which is committed to improving women’s health care in Sierra Leone. In January 2012, she is once again traveling there with a medical team to perform gyn surgery and to educate the Sierra Leonean community about the importance of utilizing the Maternity Ward in order to save women’s and children’s lives.  Nina needs all the help she can get to make her hopes a reality and we at OutdoorFit would like to contribute.

We are holding a Charity workout on Saturday, December 17th at Fair Haven Fields @ 9AM.  The Fair Haven Department of Recreation is donating the use of the Fields free of charge and Christa and I are donating our time to instruct. The normal drop in rate of $20 will apply and ALL proceeds will go toward the cause of One World Women’s Health.  Come Saturday and we will have a great workout as always and your money will go to a great cause helping women.

First OutdoorFit workout? Please download the registration form and bring it with you along with a check to OutdoorFit.


We love our OutdoorFit family!

Tis’ the Sugar Season…

December 6, 2011

I am doing it differently this year. There has been so many years where I ended with a yeast infection in January because of all the sugar I ate in December. There are delicious healthy ways to avoid all of the sugar. This weekend Tom and I made hot Cocoa with almond milk, stevia, and unsweetened cocoa. It was perfectly delicious and guilt free.

Hot Cocoa!!!

Do a cookie search on the blog and you will find some great recipes for low-glycemic cookies that won’t spike your blood sugar.

Here is the recipe for our OutdoorFit Energy Cookie. I am going to try them again this year but I am going to reduce the amount of honey and use stevia instead.

Please send healthy treat recipes and I will post them on the blog!

It is so important to stay on good supplements all year-long but especially during the winter months. Antioxidants protects against  inflammation from all of those chocolate chip cookies.

Here’s to a Healthy Holiday Season!
