The 4 Important Kettlebell Exercises For Newbies To Master + The 300 Calorie Vegetable Challenge

Happy Monday! It was really nice to sit by my parents’ pool and unwind for a bit yesterday. Plus, the cake I made was a hit. I have to say, I think it’s the best vegan dessert I’ve made yet! Now it’s back to the grind!

Last week, I had the amazing opportunity to talk with the king of the kettlebell training, Jason C Brown.

He gave me some wonderful advice (the whole interview will be posted up tomorrow), and after hearing a lot of interest from you all on using these cute little weights, I decided it was a must to focus on them in today’s show.

I couldn’t stop the awesomeness there, even though my hair decided it had had enough.

While vegetables might not be high in calories, they are filling. The fiber combined with the bulk helps you to feel fuller faster and longer.

That’s why last week, I gave my boot campers the challenge that I am giving you today:

-Add in 300 calories of vegetables per day for the entire week and see how you feel.

-What does 300 calories of vegetables look like? It’s not as scary or hard as you think.

300 Calorie Vegetable Challenge

So are you in? Think of all the fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals you’ll take in each day by trying the challenge.

Plus, meat is expensive! Eat less and save more.

What made up my 300 calories? 

1 sweet potato

1 bell pepper

1 bag spinach

1 cup okra

1 cup brussels sprouts

1 cup mushrooms

What’s your favorite vegetable?


  • GREAT workout! If I have a free day this week, I’m doing it! Already bookmarked!

    • Thanks! Definitely let me know what you think if you can fit it in!

  • You’re right about the vegetables. I can make a salad and pile it high with veggies and fruits, and it’s super filling (esp. if you add nuts) and I can tell it’s not many calories, bc vegetable calories are generally pretty negligible (except potatoes, I guess). Plus 300 calories from veggies a day really isn’t THAT many when you think about how many calories we should eat per day, and how many servings of veggies we should eat.

    That cake you made for yesterday looked so delicious… your mom is lucky hehe!

    • Exactly, but trying to add an extra 300 calories on top of the veggies you already eat can be tricky which is why it was such a fun challenge!

  • Great to see the kettlebell primer…i always feel like my technique stinks! And love your veggie challenge. Sweet potatoes and brussels sprouts top my list!

    • I always worry people jump into kb’s too fast so these are some great moves to get the form right before moving up!

  • Kim

    Love this – I go in spurts with my kettlebell and can’t wait to try this workout!! Thanks for sharing (and making it easy to pin for later!!).

    • Awesome! Grab those KBs and try it out!

  • brussels sprouts and carrots are our favorites!

    • I eat BS’s every day! Lol, delicious!
