Balanced Bites Podcast Episode #278 – Unsupportive Friends & Family
Purchase My Premade, Organic Balanced Bites Spices!
The Balanced Bites Spices are on sale exclusively over at kasandrinos.com!
All of these blends are also available in the pages of Practical Paleo, 2nd Edition. If you don't want to buy them, you are welcome to make them. If you need them all nightshade-free, you are welcome to make them until we release a pack of exclusively nightshade-free blends (anticipated this spring). If you need salt-free, well, you know what I'm going to say… recipes, make them salt-free. Done.
But if you want this to be an easy-button to tasty food in your kitchen every day of the week, then here you go.
They are sold in two different 4-packs or a full set of 8-pack, and eventually, they will be sold individually. All ingredient details are on the Kasandrinos website.

Alright, ladies! Here's a look at three #girlsgetpullups movements you can train. . I'll try to capture some other movements that will help you train for pull-ups besides those that are on the bar soon, but I need to get to another gym space to record! . Do not use bands for these movements. . LEFT: Negatives. Get yourself to the top of the pull-up position (jump, get help from a trainer, or use a box or step that allows you to reach), then lower as slowly as you possibly can. Repeat this 2-5x resting 1-3 minutes between. . MIDDLE: Scap pull-ups (I had called them shrugs previously since that's what my teacher called them at trapeze class years ago, but they're basically a scapular retraction “pull-up”). Pull yourself up only from the very bottom of your dead hang position using a shrug-type of moment and try not to bend much at the elbow. You are not trying to pull all the way up here, you're training what I think most women find the most difficult – digging out of that dead hang. Do 2-5 sets of these, as many as you can, resting 2-3 minutes between. . RIGHT: half-pull ups. These get the biceps involved and go beyond the scap pull-up but don't go all the way. Do 2-3 sets of these, resting 2-3 minutes between. . Note: my workout posts are not open casting for my next personal trainer. In other words, no IG coaching please, thanks 😘 . If you want to see an old school trapeze video of mine, hit this tag – it's the oldest post there! #flipslifts . #pullups #bodybuilding #crossfit #notcrossfit
