Spruce-It-Up Oatmeal Bowl

Oatmeal BowlA few weeks ago when we were on our mini-vacation, we booked a couple of nights at a brand new hotel in our town. It was only 5 miles away from our house, which meant we could head home to let the dogs out and feed the animals, but it also meant we would be staying in a new room, with room service, coffee, meals, and no messes to clean up. It was the ultimate relaxation for a few days.  Continue reading

Gluten-Free Irish Soda Bread

Irish Soda Bread SlicedHappy St Patrick’s Day!

Every year, we head out to a few festivities, celebrate the day with a parade, a street fair, and some Irish “cuisine” aka Guinness, Green Beer, and green dyed everything. As fun as it can be, I’m not a huge fan of green dye and beer doesn’t agree with my stomach, so when it rained this weekend, I was happy to forgo the activities and instead plan some green and Irish treats for the week ahead. Yesterday we started with a green smoothie bowl, and today, we attempted Irish Soda Bread. Continue reading

Your Healthy Eating Questions Answered!

Healthy Eating 101

Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to give a Nutrition Talk to a wonderful group of ladies, from the Wounded Warrior Caregivers Retreat. We talked about a few key ways to figure out the confusion around Healthy Eating (which I will be sharing with you soon), as well as answer some of their questions. It got me thinking about all the questions I receive, from family, friends, and clients, about how to eat healthy. Instead of answering them separately, I thought it would make more sense to put them together. That way you get all your questions answered, as well as have a reference to come back to.

White Bean and Arugula Soup

white bean and arugula Soup is definitely one of the hardest things for me to make. I don’t know what it is, but unless it is a blended, creamy soup, it just doesn’t turn out edible.

But every time I find a soup I love, I think the same thing “I want to make this at home!“. So I try, and usually laugh at how off it is. The best soups are recipes that I follow, or by pure accident. There are quote a few that have been dumped out

Recently we were eating at a new local restaurant and I tried the white bean and kale soup. It was broth based and contained white beans, arugula, and tomatoes. It was even better than I thought it would be and seemed easy enough to recreate at home.  Continue reading

A New Way to Make Coffee, plus a Yoga + Tea Giveaway!

ghee and coconut coffee

Lately I’ve been switching up my routine a bit, or rather, trying to create a routine. I tend to procrastinate, end up working late into the day, and then stress about not getting as much accomplished as I thought I would. I am also not the best organizer and do better when someone else has organized my day. The big things will get done (maybe right at the last minute), but the little things that I really want to do, the creative or fun things, end up being pushed aside. Continue reading

Detox 101: Your 21 Day Guide to Getting Healthy for Good has Arrived!

Detox 101 Pic StackThe past few weeks have been a bit surreal. If you’ve been following on Facebook or Instagram, you probably know why. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I have quite a few projects lined up that I am excited to share with you, and you’ll start to see some of these trickling out soon. These all hit and came together around the same time that one very big project finally  was released – my first book, Detox 101.

I received my personal copies before the release and was able to share a few sneak peeks at the content, as well as finally see it in print and share it with my classes. It was crazy and a little strange to see myself and my words on the pages. I’ve been staring at these words and pictures for over a year, so to me, it was “just me”. Continue reading
