How to Get the Washboard Abs of Your Dreams

Let’s do a simple exercise.

I want you to picture yourself with a six-pack. I want you to see your beautiful, bold self as lean and ripped, like one of those Greek god statues they carved out hundreds of years ago.

Maybe you’ve never even pictured yourself with a six-pack. Or, perhaps you feel you COULD get a six-pack but you don’t have the time or discipline for it.

Washboard abs aren’t only for the people you see on TV or in magazines. You can get some, too!

…but it’s definitely not that complicated, either.

We’re going to give you a few pointers on how to chisel that core of yours down to abs and muscles. This is stuff you can do today, so don’t be afraid to jump right in and start your ab routine ASAP!

Recipes: Omelettes

Today’s recipe is all about breakfast’s favorite little pocket of deliciousness: the omelette.

The awesome thing about omelettes is that they’re very customizable. You can make them healthier by substituting egg whites for regular eggs or by stuffing the inside with veggies.  Or, pack your omelette with some healthy meats or fishes to get a rich serving of protein.

Add some salsa or avocado on the side to jazz up the flavor without ratcheting up the calories. You can even pair this meal with some sweeter breakfast options such as yogurt and fruit to get a balanced meal.
