If you’re in need of motivation to hit the gym and crush your next workout, look no further than Kelsey Wells. She’s always sharing workouts from her PWR program, and they’ve definitely become our go-to when we’re in need of a challenge.

If you’re looking to improve your upper-body strength while building muscle, you’ve got to give Kelsey’s workout a shot.

The Workout

Kelsey explained in her caption that this workout should be performed as a superset, meaning you’ll take little to no rest in between each exercise. Complete three sets of bicep curls and bent-over reverse flys, then complete three sets of barbell curls and bent-over rows. As always, don’t forget to warm up before the workout and cool down afterward.

Hold the Phone – Trader Joe’s Now Sells Vegan Crab Cakes, and We’re Drooling

Hold the Phone – Trader Joe’s Now Sells Vegan Crab Cakes, and We’re Drooling

This article is for information only and doesn’t call for any action.

Jackfruit is a magical meat substitute that can be transformed into pulled pork sandwiches, tacos, or even pot pie. This tropical fruit has the same texture as meat, so when thrown together with other ingredients, seasoning, and sauces, it can take on the flavor of your favorite meat dish – but it’s totally vegan.

Trader Joe’s has jumped on the jackfruit train by selling canned Green Jackfruit in Brine and a frozen meal, Yellow Jackfruit Curry with Jasmine Rice. Now, the fan-favorite grocery store has upped its jackfruit game by selling Vegan Jackfruit Cakes, which it dubs "crabless cakes." Sold in the frozen section, these meatless cakes are made with jackfruit, potatoes, cilantro, green onions, celery seed, and a seasoning blend, according to ChooseVeg.com.

Each two-cake serving has 150 calories, six grams of fat, 21 grams of carbs, six grams of fiber, one gram of sugar, and two grams of protein. Each box has four cakes total, so even if you eat the entire box, it’s only 300 calories. Whether you are totally vegan or just want a low-fat crab cake alternative, these jackfruit cakes are a must have on your next TJ’s run.

Good News, Keto Dieters: These 5 Dishes at Panda Express Are Fairly Low-Carb

Good News, Keto Dieters: These 5 Dishes at Panda Express Are Fairly Low-Carb

This article is for information only and doesn’t call for any action.

When you’re pressed for time, there’s nothing simpler than Chinese takeout, and with its world-famous Orange Chicken and buffet-style ordering, Panda Express is a top choice. If you’re on the keto diet, you already know classics like fried rice and spring rolls are off limits, but is there anything on the menu you can eat? Turns out, yes, as long as you watch your macros.

Still, you should only indulge on occasion. Those Chinese-inspired flavors often come with hidden sugars, and the restaurant’s scoop-and-serve style means you can’t choose how much of any one ingredient (like sauce) goes into your dish. When you do go, dig your chopsticks into these safer picks:

  • Chicken: Your best bet is to order from the restaurant’s Wok Smart menu, which offers more complete meals for under 300 calories. Tossed in a ginger sauce with fresh-cut beans and onions, the String Bean Chicken Breast comes in at only nine grams of net carbs. You can also try the Mushroom Chicken at 10 grams – it’s loaded with chicken, mushrooms, and zucchini, glazed in ginger soy sauce.
  • Beef: Also from the Wok Smart menu, the Broccoli Beef pairs tender beef with (you guessed it) fresh broccoli. It’s a pretty filling meal for 11 grams of net carbs.
  • Fish: Order the Steamed Ginger Fish (eight grams of net carbs) instead of a deep-fried protein. You can pair it with the Super Greens – a mix of kale, broccoli, and cabbage – for five grams of net carbs or the Mixed Vegetables for 11 grams (less if you get a half order).
  • Vegan or vegetarian: For plant-based protein, order the spicy Hot Szechuan Tofu (eight grams of net carbs), and complete your meal with either the Super Greens or Mixed Vegetables.
