Happy Saturday! I hope you’re getting in time to do whatever fuels your body and your heart this weekend. It’s been a whirlwind over here, honestly. From remodeling the kitchen in our new place, moving, travel for work and personal, and juggling all the things with work it’s been a great challenge for me to practice what I preach here on NS! It’s also been really amazing to share some IRL moments and behind the scenes with you on Instagram stories and thank you for also keeping the convo going and chatting on there- I’m so grateful for this amazing community.
I also want to keep you in the loop with what’s to come to NS! I have a lot of new recipes I’m testing out all inspired by this warmer weather, but most importantly I’ve taken time to revisit why I created Nutrition Stripped in the first place and it’s been exciting and humbling to share more recipes that are truly SIMPLE and back to the core of what we do here and how you can incorporate it with more ease than ever before…more on this in an entire blog post to come!
So, here’s the weekly recap of what articles I’ve been reading in the health and nutrition world and noteworthy news from the week so you can stay up to date, too. And if you see or read anything noteworthy from around the web, be sure to share with me and comment on this post so we can chat it up. Have the best weekend!

Try Deadlifts from Hannah Davis’s Weight Training Booty Workout
Start by standing in the middle of the band, feet hips width apart. Bring the handles up to the shoulders and hold them there throughout the exercise. Hinge your hips back behind you allowing for a soft bend in your knees while you do, until your chest is parallel to the floor and you feel a pretty intense stretch in your hamstring. Drive your hips back forward and squeeze your glutes and your quads as you come back into the standing position. Repeat for 15 reps.
