Resources

All the resources mentioned here are not sponsored. These are helpful finds I have collected throughout my journey. Some are informational (for those who like to Google everything), and others just make life easier. I am sure you will find some of these (if not all) just as useful!

Health & Wellness

Flo

Flo is an amazing app that tracks the menstrual cycle. From my experience, based on the information I’ve entered it has been pretty close to accurate. It is also informative, user friendly, and has a passcode option when going into the app so your personal information is secured.

Safe Cosmetics

SafeCosmetics.org – well, based on the name, you guessed it. For those taking their wellness to the next level (other than fitness and nutrition), this is a great resource to use to find information on the products we buy. Making an informed decision on the products we choose to buy is so tiny but with such a huge impact to our overall wellness.

Mindful

Mindful.org is a wonderful resource to get helpful insights on mental health and finding peace within yourself. The recognize the importance of overall health and the relation between the mind, body, fitness, and nutrition.

Nutrition

OurGroceries

OurGroceries is an app you can use to list groceries and has an even greater advantage if you are grocery shopping for more than one in your home. Everyone who shares the app can add to the list without having to go around asking or writing it down. It is a way more convenient way of shopping for more than just yourself.

MyFitnessPal

The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition includes a Glycemic Index Table with an extensive list of carbohydrates so you can use to you advantage for carbohydrates timing.  When trying to reach your fitness goals, depending on how your body responds to carbohydrates, timing is everything!

Hydro coach

Hydro Coach is a great app if you are struggling to drink enough water throughout the day. You can customize it by setting a water drinking goal. You can also customize the type you log by items you drink like tea coffee by the ounce. It also has a reminder “friend” that will notify you when you have been inactive in logging water.

The Vegetarian Resource Group

The Vegetarian Resource Group is a great tool to use to find an abundance of information for those who are in the plant-based community. You can find information such as vegan/vegetarian restaurants by state or province in the US and Canada, and detailed nutrition information for those who are plant-based beginners and so much more!

Vegmenu

VegMenu is an app that is great to use for finding vegetarian or vegan dishes to cook at home. You can find recipes by cook duration, prep time, difficulty and more. The options are endless. 

Happy Cow

Happy Cow  is mainly known for being able to find vegetarian or vegan restuarants all over the globe (183 countries). Sometimes looking for a place to eat out when you are no longer eating meat seems difficult. This app (or website) allows for no excuse and makes it so much easier!

The Dirty Dozen

The Environmental Working Group is a great resource that provides an annual list of fruits and vegetables that have the highest amounts of pesticides called the Dirty Dozen. Pesticides are fatal to our health, so it is important to know which fruits and vegetables should be bought organic. They also include the Clean Fifteen which are the fruits and vegetables that contain the lowest amount of pesticides.

Glycemic Index Table

The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition includes a Glycemic Index Table with an extensive list of carbohydrates so you can use to you advantage for carbohydrates timing.  When trying to reach your fitness goals, depending on how your body responds to carbohydrates, timing is everything!

Vegan Additives

This is a useful app that can be put to use when shopping for groceries or eating out. If you are unsure if what you are buying is not 100% vegan, you can search the ingredients here to verify.

Fitness

Interval Timer

There are thousands of internal timer apps. Using one during a workout is important for timing rests between sets. Find one that you enjoy using, and actually use it! I personally use the one by Dreamspark. 

Workoutlabs.com

Workoutlabs.com has a free exercise finder where you can find different exercises filtering them by muscle type and training type. It contains sample demos of how to perform the workout. This exercise finder includes a wide range of at home workouts requiring little to no equipment. It is a great option to use to get creative when at home.

jetfit.com

Jefit.com also has a free exercise finder where you can also find different exercises filtering them by muscle type, training type, and level of expertise. It has images of how the exercise should be performed. This one contains a wide range of weighted workouts for each muscle type. I doubt you would ever have boring training sessions in the gym.

exercise.com

Exercise.com has a free exercise finder where you can find different exercises filtering them by muscle type, training type, level of expertise, mechanics type, and sports for conditioning. It contains a wide range of weight exercises with sample videos of how to perform during the workout.

B o d y b u i l d i n g . c o m

You may already know Bodybuilding.com is a great tool for the fitness enthusiast. You may not know this but it also includes an exercise finder where you can find different exercises ranging by muscle group and training type. In my opinion, there is not much variety when compaired to the others I’ve mentioned. Another down side is you have to pay a premium price to view a sample video of the exercise performed. It use to be free, but I thought it would be an honorable mention.
