The Best Health and Fitness Articles of the Week #129 – Vegan Sofritas at Chipotle, Should You Do Speed and Agility Drills, and Phone Apps To Improve Your Mind


Chipotle’s New Braised Tofu Sofritas

Chipotle just announced a new ingredient to their menu and it’s vegan! We went and tried it today and it was delicious! The girl at the counter was telling us that she loves meat but that she can’t stop eating the sofritas because it’s so good. And what makes it even better is that Chipotle recently removed bacon from their pinto beans, so those are vegan now too! When they can get rid of all of their GMO ingredients, I love that place.

How to tie a tie in 10 seconds – YouTube

This isn’t health or fitness related but it was such a cool tip that I had to share it. And hey, a part of feeling good is looking good, so you should make sure that your tie is in order. There, now it’s kinda health related right? 😉

Are Speed and Agility Drills Necessary to Get Faster?

I haven’t really thought much about training with my daughter, but it is pretty early still, considering that she isn’t even born yet. 😉 I don’t even know if she will be interested in sports although I do hope to instill some sort of interest in fitness in her life.

Homemade Krispy Kreme Doughnuts – the healthy version!

I wouldn’t say these are a healthy version of Krispy Kreme donuts, but they are definitely health-“ier.” They are nice and soft too. I’ve made several vegan donuts in the past and I’ve never really been too pleased with the consistency. These are great. I made a simple powdered sugar and water frosting for half and this easy chocolate frosting for the other half. I reduced the amount of sugar in both. Next time I want to try this 2-ingredient chocolate fudge frosting.

My Vegan Body Transformation – YouTube

I’m a member of a vegan health and fitness group on Facebook and Thomas Tadlock recently made a post about his “amazing” vegan body transformation. From what I understand, he want from fit to fat and back to fit again. I’ve done this too and it’s a lot easier to get fit again after already having been fit before, so I don’t think his example is very realistic, but it’s still inspirational to see someone do it entirely on a vegan diet.

Phone Apps For Sleep, Meditation and Relaxation

I haven’t listed to the podcast that accompanies this post yet, but the list of resources on this page are good enough to link to. Omvana looks like a really cool app for the iPhone. They call themselves the “Spotify” of meditation.

Girls Don’t Poop – – YouTube

This is a really funny commercial for a product that sounds fake, but is actually real. You spray the water before pooping and it creates a film on top that traps the stink beneath it when the poops goes through. Awesome idea!
