Since protein is extremely filling I’m always thinking of new ways to sneakily incorporate into my diet. Examples? Adding all-natural 100% Whey powder to my oatmeal, Greek yogurt, pancakes, waffles, smoothies, annnnnddddd…wait for it…my coffee.
My typical AM routine usually entails grabbing a grande iced coffee with two splashes of soy w/ no sweetener + cinnamon & nutmeg. So when my friend, Lisa, Instagrammed this lil trickaroo [ blending coffee with 1/2 scoop of powder & ice ], I ran as fast possible to the nearest blender. Oh heyyyyy, 14 grams of protein!
You could even get cray & add a few raspberries with a dash of pumpkin pie spice. Delish.
Don’t skimp on protein- it’s muy importante [ eat more eggs, tofu, chicken, meat, powder, nuts, cottage cheese [ << my favie ], tuna fish, &/or beans ]!
P.S. I loveeeee this all natural protein powder too!
When I met Jayde Nicole at her birthday party last year, I was completely motivated. Let me tell you, her figure is just as toned & fit in person, as you see in the pictures. I am so excited for her to be March’s Skinnista of the Month. Not only has she been named a Playmate of the Year, she also just launched a healthy-living website, Jayde Nicole Fitness and was on the hit MTV show “The Hills.” Thanks to Jayde for sharing her skinny secrets!
+ Describe your fitness background.
I have always been a health & fitness fanatic! I have been a vegetarian since I was about four years old. No one else in my family was, so as a child my diet was not great. When I turned about twelve I was told by my doctor I was malnourished & anemic. I started reading books, visiting professional nutritionists, & trainers to try to understand my body and what it needed to be completely healthy. Since then I have been a complete health & fitness junkie. I love learning about foods that can make your hair grow, clear up your skin, reduce stress, reduce the chances of cancer. Pretty much anything you need can be done through a proper diet and fitness program. Last year I made it official by becoming a Certified Personl Trainer and Fitness Nutritionist certified by the International Sports and Science Association.

+ Favorite exercise?
All my favorite exercises are on my DVD [ found on her website ]. I like a workout you can do anywhere. I am not a huge fan of machines and I love to make my muscles multi-task by working several at the same time.
+ Healthy go-to snack?
I really focus on eating lots of fruits and vegetables & NO fast food or junk, just some dark chocolate for dessert. I also try to only drink green tea & water. I think people drink a lot of their daily calories and that adds to their weigh gain. I make my own healthy 100 calories packs and keep them on hand for when hunger hits.
+ Motivation to stay in shape?
The beach! My boyfriend has a nighclub called Pink Kitty in Cabo. I’m there offen so I have to be in bikini shape year round, it is a big motivation for me.
+ Natural beauty product recommendation?
Most of my beauty routine is at night. I usually cleanse with my Clarisonic, tone, and use antioxidant vitamin serum. Then I use Eminence Mango Night Cream, a little nighttime eye cream, & then I get as much beauty sleep as possible! In the morning, I make sure I take my vitamins, eat healthy throughout the day, and drink plenty of water.
