Homemade Pumpkin-Spicey Latte

nutrition recipes Oct 19, 2022
Nothing says fall like PUMPKIN! So we've created a creamy, rich, and delicious latte, perfect for a chilly fall day.
 
 Packed with healthy fats, and no added sugar, this is a quick and easy way to enjoy a restaurant-style coffee drink at home.
 
It's also a great way to cut back on coffee (cortisol spiker), because you can use decaf, and it tastes the same!
 
Below is the video for the latte base, and then you'll add the pumpkin fixings listed below the video.
 
Here's what you'll need for part one (outlined in video):
 
  • 1 cup of coffee (decaf or regular)
  • 1 Tbsp of coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk (or other non-dairy milk)

 

 
Here's what you need for part two.
 
Once you've created the base latte above, 
add the following to your blender jar,
and pulse 3 to 4 times. If it needs warming, use a saucepan on the stove to heat it up.
 
  • 2-3 Tbsp pumpkin purée 
  • 1 Tsp (or more to taste) ground...

Revisit Your Emotional Why

Instead of asking yourself how you feel,

ask yourself what do you really want.

How will your life change when you get there.

And how you can make it happen!?

I think of this quote often:

“If you really want to do something,

you'll find a way. If you don't, you'll find an excuse.”

Jim Rohn

 

Start Small

If you know you have a 40-minute cardio workout ahead of you, and you just don’t feel like it, start with just five minutes.

Say to yourself “I’ll do this for five minutes and if I’m just not into it, I can stop.”

Chances are you’ll continue for your entire workout.

 

Change Your Routine

Take your cardio outside. Go to the park to do your workout.

Head out for a hike! Changing things up will keep you motivated. Also set a goal...

True Inner and Outer Strength: Living Her Best Life

Uncategorized Aug 04, 2022

This is 37!
Gina feels incredible.
She’s fit, strong, and positive.

The mother of two from Drumbo, Ontario,
has been crushing her BUFFnation Platform workouts
three times a week, consistently for the past few years,
building true strength from the inside out.

“I think my mindset has changed the most since joining this program,” says Gina.

“I now work out because I actually enjoy it, not to punish myself for not looking a certain way. I have two young daughters, and it is important to me to set a good example of a healthy lifestyle for them. BN has really pushed me out of my comfort zone and makes me want to be the best version of ME.
I love feeling part of a community of like-minded women
within our VIP accountability group.
I value the weekly emails and LIVE sessions and
have really taken the personal development recommendations to heart.”

Gina, way to go! You are doing an incredible job. Thank you so much for being an integral member of our community.
