  1. you don't need to add sugar to fruit, because fruit is already sweat. she always do that and rice cakes are so unhealthy for you because the rice is been boiled and processed for so long that whatever is leftover is just empty calories. if you are hungry eat whole foods (veggies and fruits) and lean proteins (chicken, turkey ,white fish) all this"post workout recipes are deserts.

  2. for me its more like my pre workout meal/snack (whatever you call it) because carbs give you the energy and my post workout meal is 1 hour later and its usually salmon or chicken with greens. But its just me since i am trying to lose weight

  3. Can you do more cardio dance, hip -hop videos? That was a lot of fun, maybe try different dance styles like Bollywood or Irish, that would be quite cool and different.

  4. Cassey love these recipes! Do you think you can make some without the use of tree nuts or nuts in general? (Of course I could also do alternatives with these recipes) but I'm Allergic to tree nuts and want to see what other great recipes you can make!????
