From their family with four children to their ever-popular HGTV show Fixer Upper, the Gaines are a busy bunch. And Joanna Gaines doesn’t just have a love for renovation — she also has a passion for food, baking, and living a wholesome, healthy lifestyle. In 2014 the couple opened Silos Baking Co., which fulfilled a long-time dream for Joanna. And that’s not all — she also shares her favorite recipes and tips to stay fit on her Magnolia Market blogand social media.
If you want to live a healthy, active lifestyle like Joanna Gaines, we suggest following her lead with these tips.
1. She meal preps
2. She bakes her own treats
With the opening of her bakery, you can tell Joanna loves sweets. But she doesn’t run out to the store for fattening, sugary goods — she makes her own using fresh, simple ingredients. Take her Simple Homemade Ice Cream recipe, for example, or her Lemon Pie. These treats don’t shy away from fat and calories, that’s for sure. But when you make it yourself, you’re more likely to appreciate all your hard work and are less likely to indulge in five pieces of pie in one sitting.
