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…

Starting out your macros

I want to preface this post by saying that this approach may not be THE solution for everyone. But I do believe it can work for MOST!  I’ve written about “IIFYM” or “flexible dieting” in 3 other posts! You can check them out here, here, and here. In these posts, I explain what macros are, what flexible dieting is, and […] Read more…

5-Foods-You-Should-Never-Eat

food Nazis

I’m seeing a lot of this crap lately and it really bugs me: Most of these “health articles” are written by the likes of Cosmo mag (insert eye roll). Now look, we know we shouldn’t be eating junk food. That doesn’t mean you can never EVER have french fries again. These lists that are demonizing […] Read more…

Cut the anxiety out of weight loss

I recently listened to a podcast about a less-stress approach to losing fat, and I could resonate with a lot of it. Sometimes tracking macros and calories can be overwhelming and tedious.

Fat-Tastic

Let’s just get this out of the way: Fat does not make you fat. There have been many diets in the past advocating a low-fat profile but the truth is, it’s not necessarily a deficit in fats that creates the body’s fat loss. Actually, the opposite is more true! The right kinds of fats can […] Read more…

My new favorite super food!

A friend of mine told me about farro a few years back. I remember trying it and really liking it… and then I forgot about it. And went back to my quinoa. Well turns out, I’m obsessed with farro these days! (and quinoa is kinda meh for me) Maybe you’re already a fan too =) […] Read more…

Cleaned-up cookies!

I love cookies. And all desserts. But for the sake of health (and also our 6-week challenge!), I have a healthy substitution cheat sheet for ya. I always have these replacement ingredients in my pantry, and I’ve used them in place of the crap that make cookies… not good for you. So here’s a standard […] Read more…

Thai peanut lettuce wraps

Thai food is one of my FAVORITES! But with all the peanut butter-y stuff and coconut curries, AND rice, it’s usually very calorically dense =( Boo. So make your own healthy version! I made this in 5 minutes, literally. I just happened to have all these things on hand though and it’s not even a […] Read more…
