During the holidays, we tend to eat more sugar than normal. We probably have more wine and peppermint mochas, too!
That’s why it’s important to have a dessert recipe that’s delicious AND low in added sugar, full of fiber and grain-free. It’s one of those desserts you feel good about eating (and helps your body feels good, too!). read more
It’s hard to not go overboard with the sweets this time of year!
We’re busy, so we grab what’s easy.
We’re a little stressed, so we eat more sugar than we want to. read more
Sugar has been part of your life for a long time. It’s your go-to comfort food.
Picture this– you’ve had a bad day and you wander into the kitchen looking for a treat. You try to keep junk food out of the house and so the search begins for something– anything(!)– sweet.
After riffling through the cabinets, you finally find a bag of marshmallows (woohoo!). And, even though you don’t love them, you eat them. A lot of them. Because it makes you feel better in the moment. read more
Making time for all the things we need to get done in a day is a struggle, but a healthy dinner doesn’t have to be hard.
Or time consuming. Or complicated.
You’ve tried a Whole30 and totally got tripped up by the no-sugar thing. Or, maybe you’re vegan and you eat SO well… except for that candy.
If you’re like I was– you’ll eat healthy all day long and then 8 p.m. rolls around and you can’t stay away from the ice cream in the freezer.
It’s like your cravings just take over. read more
Sometimes you just don’t have time (or energy) to make a healthy lunch for yourself.

I hear you!
It always comes up with clients– how to eat healthy even when you don’t feel like cooking. Even when you’re traveling. Even when you don’t have time. read more
It’s a fact– when you have healthy food ready to eat, you’re more likely to eat healthy food.
You’ve seen this happen in your own life, right?
If you walk through that front door after a long day at work, without a plan and without the necessary ingredients, it’s wayyyy too easy to order take out or serve up a bowl of cereal. You want to eat healthy, but it’s hard when you’re tired and just want to hit the couch. read more
Pizza… is delicious.
What’s not to love? Chewy crust. Sauce. Veggies. Cheese.
Pizza is a go-to comfort food for a lot of us. It’s easy to pick one up on the way home from work or pop a frozen pizza in the oven (there are so many healthy options these days!). Serve it with a salad and … yum. Not a bad meal.
But sometimes you want something a little lighter. Something healthy, not heavy. read more
I know what you’re thinking– “Can drinking a smoothie really make my skin look better? ”
Well, yeah– it might. read more
At some point in the day, a lot of us find ourselves mindlessly snacking. Maybe you’re hungry. Maybe you’re bored, or stressed, or tired.
But, if you don’t have good snacks on hand, you might find yourself eating whatever is in front of you, like tortilla chips, work-birthday-party cupcakes, gummy bears, and way too many pretzels.
You know there are better snacks out there, but you don’t have time to wander through the grocery store reading the ingredients on every last snack bag. read more
