What You Probably Didn't Know About Waist Trainers

With this week being National Eating Disorders Awareness week, we are very sensitive to this topic because we know how it affects not only sorority women, but all women. Body image is a heavy topic and can consume so many of us. Being skinny and looking perfect is an obsession predominately created in our own minds, influenced by the media and our surroundings. It is so important to recognize when dieting is becoming unhealthy. Recently we have been hearing a lot about waist trainers. Skeptical about its results, it was so timely that we heard from Dr. Oz on his take on the waist trainers. Click here to learn about the affects of using a waist trainer.

Diet fads are exactly just what they are...fads. They will go away eventually. Maintaining a healthy body takes discipline, healthy eating, and exercising...continuously. Crash diets, waist trainers, wraps-those are all temporary solutions that don't foster a constructive way of living in a sound body. Don't get us wrong, some mainstream diets and exercises have proven to be great, but that is because they foster a healthy lifestyle like eating paleo, doing crossfit, and doing yoga.

If you or someone you know is battling an eating disorder, we encourage you to check out the National Eating Disorders Awareness website to learn more about eating disorders, how you can tackle them, and how you can help others.

Chia Seed Pudding


Healthy meals can often times come easy for us, but it's the healthy snacks part that has been hard lately. While baby carrots, apples with peanut butter, and strawberries are all tasty snacks, we have been looking for different unique and healthy snacks to try that are easy to make at home. One of our friends introduced us to Chia Seed Pudding and we are now hooked. Chia seeds have been the latest health craze as chia seeds are like super seeds! They stop food cravings as Chia seeds absorb 9 times their weight which creates a gel as they expand. When it is in your stomach, it makes your stomach feel like it has had all the food it needs according to Dr. Oz.

So what do you need: 
  1. Almond Milk or Hazelnut Milk
  2. Two tablespoons of chia seeds (whole or raw)
The directions are pretty simple...

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and stir them together
 for a couple of seconds . Chill the mixture for about 2 to 4 hours or until the mixture has a tapioca-like pudding consistency. That's it! For a better taste, eat it with some sliced almonds, pistachios, berries, bananas or cinnamon.

Enjoy!
