Reduce Stress and Avoid Cravings: Flipping 50 Episode 6

During busy, non-stop days you spend a lot of your willpower. If you are too busy to snack on something of substance, you may be more tempted to just grab anything once your willpower bank account is low. Be prepared.

What could you do with…

Double the Energy? Learn how to stress less, but double your energy, all while avoiding cravings, in just 14 days… with my free ebook. If you want to DIY and improve your energy, it’s all there.

Whether you are a teacher or any woman with a tight schedule, you likely hit the ground running and find your tank is low at the end of the day. If you have experienced cravings during stressful times, this one’s for you. If you negate stress with exercise but feel limited by a joint issue, like the knee pain I target today, you will find answers in this episode of Flipping 50 TV.

Pantry Raid

Stock the kitchen with the right stuff and remove processed items and foods that are your triggers.

If you bring it into the house, you plan to eat it. That doesn’t mean you will never treat yourself, it just means you will consciously decide to do so. When you do, get a single serving size and enjoy it. That alone may reduce the times you splurge and minimize the damage.

Minute Made Meals (and Snacks):

Could you eat a whole bag of Oreos by yourself? Have a ready-made snack, a creamy chocolate option that won’t kill your goals and give you a sugar hangover. This rich, creamy treat is a blood-sugar stabilizer packed with protein to help you reach your goals, not sabotage them.

Mint Chocolate Chip Bowl

My Chocolate Bliss Smoothie Bowl


  • 1 scoop Flipping 50 Plant Protein shake mix
  • 1 cup frozen cherries
  • ¼ avocado
  • ¼ cup gluten-free oats
  • 1 T. chia seeds or hemp hearts
  • 1-1/2 T cacao powder
  • 4 ice cubes, optional (I always do)
  • Coconut milk, to desired thickness (start with ½ cup and increase as needed)


Pulse the cherries, hemp hearts, and liquid first, then blend all ingredients until smooth. Add antioxidants by including a handful of greens. Top with fresh or slightly thawed berries, sliced almonds (pictured), raw unsweetened coconut or use your imagination!

This smoothie is loaded with the protein and fiber that kill cravings, plus healthy fat to satisfy you for hours. Hemp hearts offer high plant-based protein as well as fiber. In addition to adding fiber, the chia seeds and avocado make this good-for-you-treat similar to chocolate mousse.  If you don’t have a NutriBullet in the break room, why not?

For an afternoon treat after a busy day, but before some calming exercise that will wind you down, this is a sinfully-good, smart snack. If you don’t love chocolate as much as I do, you can do a vanilla version. It’s ridiculous to think you’ll never want a treat. Be prepared.

Muscles in Minutes

  • Start your day with higher intensity exercise. Short cardio sessions and heavy weight training in as little as 10-20 minutes will increase your energy and fat-burning during the day.
  • For a good night’s sleep, keep your late day exercise to slow walks, yoga, or simple stretches to calm and relax you.
