Salted Chocolate Mini-Tart

Gluten-free, grain-free, vegan, refined sugar-free, paleo, and pegan. I’m not a carb (pasta, bread..) kind of girl. If I’m in the mood for something a little sinful to satisfy my cravings, I’m headed for a treat in the chocolate department. However, even though chocolate seems to be my sweet tooth crutch, I still enjoy finding ways […]

Farmers Market Frittata

You can only make green smoothies, scrambled eggs, and pancakes so many times until you’re ready for something new. I’ll be honest with you, I’m a fan of breakfast routine and a creature of habit. The less thought and reasoning behind deciding what you’re going to eat for your first meal, the more energy can […]

Why I don’t count calories (and am able to lose weight!!)

Over the years I’ve tried more than a handful of diets, lifestyle changes, and workout routines. My ultimate goal has always been to become as healthy as I possibly can, but fat loss was definitely an important factor in regards to the changes I made. One of the latest trends that has been sweeping the fitness […]

Low-Carb Diet + Greens, Eggs and Ham Frittata

I was having a discussion with a customer the other day in regards to body happiness and satisfaction, particularly among women. Doesn’t it always seem that women are never happy with their appearance? We are always looking for a new diet or lifestyle change that will finally give us the body we have always dreamed of. […]

Simple Kale Salad

It’s safe to say that this is my most requested recipe. Many times dessert recipes tend to steal the show, leaving the savory and “healthy” meals as scraps for the birds to pick at. Okay that might have been slightly exaggerated, but you get my point. For those who stick their tongue out or roll their eyes […]

Mushroom Sliders

I’m always on the search for quick, easy, and healthy recipes that I can whip up in the kitchen. Especially now since I’m tweaking with the macronutrients in my diet, finding new recipes can be a bit of a challenge. Luckily for me, I came across an Instagram account that dramatically helped me out! If […]

Stuffed mushrooms with bacon, brussels, and butter

I would be lying if I told you “all or nothing”, “black or white”, and “extreme” were not words people used to describe me in the past. Things have changed quite a bit, but I can catch myself dabbling into those areas from time to time. The “extreme” lifestyle is something that I’ve truly put […]

Everything will be okay.

Falling off the wagon sucks. It’s frustrating, mentally and physically debilitating, and makes you want to hide under the comforter and sleep all day and night, but it’s just a part of life. You don’t hear the saying “life’s a roller coaster” for no particular reason. There are ups and downs in this journey and it’s […]

Changing Perspective

Deciding to become healthier can be such a daunting task. How can I give up smoking? I need to start working out 3-5 times a week. How will I fit this all in my schedule? How in the world can I meal prep when I have three kids running around the house? I’m a full-time college […]
