Quit acting your age!

I’m turning 33 this year. I’m not worried about the number one bit, HOWEVER, there are things I know I need to take care of better. I have many friends already getting Botox, lip injections, face lifts…. I won’t comment one way or the other on that… I also want to stay looking young and have good […] Read more…

REESES EGGS!!!

I think we can all agree on one thing- Reeses eggs are the shiz. Of course, I had to reinvent them as a healthy version-(inspired by local friend Trish Allen). Yep they still have lots of calories, and I won’t judge if you eat the whole batch. They do have slightly better macros, more nutrients, […] Read more…

Healthy carrot cake

Is anyone else a big carrot cake fan?? It’s one of my favorites… with walnuts and cream cheese frosting, pineapple, BUT hold the raisins. Blehhhh. I tweaked a recipe from this source, and I really loved the outcome!! Carrot cake ingredients: 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour 2/3 cup (2 level scoops) protein powder… I used IsaLean […] Read more…

FOOD FREEDOM: quitting macros

I’ve addressed this a bit, but I haven’t updated my stance in a little while! I’ve been focusing on other things, but health and fitness is always a priority! I have lots of previous posts about flexible dieting and macros. I LOVED having flexibility and choosing what I ate while I was in competition prep […] Read more…

Breaking your bad HABITS

You know what keeps us from achieving our goals? The fact that we haven’t developed the right habits! Or we allow our “bad” habits to make our decisions for us- keeping us from progressing.  If you can’t stick to a healthy nutrition plan, is it because you’re in the habit of emotionally eating? Or in […] Read more…

Creamy roasted garlic butternut soup

Tis the season for butternut squash! I love it in certain things- and this homemade soup that I tweaked from a sauce recipe, is my favorite thing lately! First of all, know that the recipe is adapted from this AMAZING autumn lasagna.  I make it every fall, and it’s worth the calories! Actually, I don’t think of […] Read more…

Hey guys. So By now you should know I have a traditional no-nonsense approach to health and wellness. Eat well, move your body = you get results. I discourage gimmicks, crash and fad diets, quick fixes, and I’ve also turned down every offer to be a health coach because I don’t love either the idea […] Read more…

Should I have cheat meals?

Most people are familiar with the term “cheat meals,” but I don’t actually like that term- at all. Cheating imposes you’re doing something WRONG- like cheating on a spouse, cheating on a test. Cheating on your diet. We are not even on a diet…. The idea of a “cheat day” is even worse. None of […] Read more…
