2 large sweet potatoes (sliced)
Avocado or coconut oil
Slice sweet potatoes. (Keep the skin on if organic to enjoy the health benefits of the soil).
Rub coconut or avocado oil on both sides and sprinkle with sea salt.
Line a baking sheet with tinfoil and place sweet potatoes on the sheet.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
Remove and let cool
1 lb extra lean or lean ground beef
2 eggs, lightly beaten
½ cup Italian dressing (Homemade or store bought. This recipe tastes really good with Kraft Zesty Italian.)
½ cup gluten-free bread crumbs (optional) We leave out, and still works great!
Staying hydrated during the hot, hot weather is
key to keeping up energy, reducing the bloat
and controlling cravings.
But, plain old water - especially during the summer - can get a little boring!
And juices, pop, and lemon aid are loaded with sugar!
So what's the solution?

Meet Mandy. She’s one of our Spring Challenge 2023 winners. Her journey is so incredibly inspiring.
Over the span of just six weeks, she was able to boost her energy, release 14 pounds and 16.5 inches, sleep better, and think clearer.
Mandy started implementing “small steps” and changes over the course of the six-week program. To begin with, she attended LIVE online resistance training and cardio classes. Then she started to fine-tune her nutrition, including cutting back on starchy carbs like rice, potatoes and bread (cutting back, not cutting out!), and increasing her protein to help with muscle recovery. She also chose to avoid alcohol and diet coke.
In addition to her regular workouts, she enjoyed hikes, online stretch classes, and connecting with the BUFFnation community. And six weeks later?
“I did my final measurements, and was blown away by how many inches I lost!” says Mandy. “My clothes fit better; I feel more...

It was an exciting time for Dr. Taryn Williams and her family.
After having to cancel a trip to Universal Studios during Covid,
she was finally all rescheduled and ready to go.
In fact, she and her husband Sy,
were planning on surprising their daughters,
Olivia and Isla, with the news Christmas morning.
Then they would take off to Florida a few days later.
A great plan that unfortunately hit a major snag,
when Taryn suffered a painful foot injury.
That painful injury happened while Taryn was doing
a Tabata sprint at boot camp class.
Suddenly, she felt a pop in the ball of her left foot.
Immediately, she was unable to stand on it.
An x-ray showed a fracture to the sesamoid bone,
(which is the small weight-bearing bone on the ball of your foot).
The prognosis? Six to eight weeks in a walking cast with no weight-bearing!
“This was a devastating blow of bad news,” said Taryn.
“Boot camp for me is how I keep...

My time here at BUFFnation has been the best start to the year I could have asked for. And as they say at BN, I experienced so many WINS - including releasing 8 kilos (about 17 pounds!).
My three big wins have to do with mindset, nutrition, and the importance of my thinking! Not only have I learned about online business in the digital space, and attended a number of motivational speaking engagements, but I've also started maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle. My outlook on life has changed, and getting enough sleep has helped me stay motivated and happy.
When I started this internship, I was 89 kilos, and within a month and a half of implementing the BN principals, my weight released. I have released seven kilos while having three meals a day, and I achieved that without dieting, just little lifestyle changes or what BN calls "small steps.". I now understand the significance of routines! I plan to continue doing this...
