Let's Talk Fitness

My dad is now 80 years old and has written 2 books, Let's Talk Fitness and You'll Never Believe It.


Tony Naturale is a “natural sports celebrity” known throughout the United States, especially with 70- and even 80-year-old ever-young athletes who play baseball three and four times a week. He is their distinctive chronicler, with a bit of exaggeration and double doses of staying fit with humor. In the context of their collective journey as athletes-til-the-day-they-drop, Tony Naturale: Let’s Talk Fitness will grab you by the heart and blow your mind, for the basic premise that – through their diets, the exercises they do and how they are motivated (at an age when others are sitting on sofas in nursing homes only dreaming about exercise) – this stalwart band of die-hards continues to lead a stunning life. Find out what keeps them playing a young man’s game.

Retired Montclair Police Lieutenant Anthony V. Naturale, the gospel-turned-fitness author interviews dancers, doctors, nutritionists, students and athletes from 17 to 100 years of age, as well as letting you know the tips and tricks he uses to stay fit at 77 years of age.

Anthony Naturale is a retired Montclair Police Lieutenant who served for over thirty years. He enjoys keeping fit in a variety of ways, especially by playing on the New Jersey softball Senior Olympic team. He lives in Wharton, New Jersey with his lovely wife.

Raw Protein Thin Mint Cookie Review

My 80 year old dad was visiting this past week and we decided to make the Pure 2 Raw's protein thin mint cookie recipe. I had already tried making them and asbolutely fell in love with them! They taste really good, and definitely remind me of the thin mints I used to be able to eat before I became gluten free. We had fun making them and even made a PROTEIN THIN MINT COOKIE VIDEOto show you how easy they are to make. These cookies are raw and not baked. After you make up the dough, you simply mold into a cookie and freeze. You won't believe how great they come out. They are hard like a regular cookie, but note that they have to stay cold, because the coconut oil in them will melt. I love these after a workout. Have fun making them... we sure did!

Be sure to CLICK HERE TO SEE OUR FUN VIDEO, as well as other you tube videos we've made. My son loves making the videos and I think he is getting better at holding the camera straight!

I found the Pure 2 Raw website awhile back and am having trying their recipes. It's so hard to find really good recipes when you are so limited to what you can eat. Here is the video from the girls at making their protein thin mint cookies:
