Creamy Chicken + Vegetable Soup (Dairy-Free)

Oh my! My brand new Creamy Chicken + Vegetable Soup is DELICIOUS. I’ll go so far as to say it’s my very favorite soup recipe…ever. It’s that good! This soup has ALL the things. It’s creamy and comforting. It’s filling but still light on the stomach. It’s dairy-free (really!). And it’s actually really, really good for you. It’s healthy comfort food. I served this soup to my family for dinner last night, and I looked over to my husband as we were eating and said, “Do you know what the...

My Favorite Gut-Friendly Pre-Dinner Snack

  Sometimes you just need a little snack before dinner, am I right? My new ritual for evenings when I’m prepping dinner for my family is to pour a glass of my favorite kombucha, drink a cup of my homemade bone broth or enjoy a little bowl of my new favorite pre-dinner snack. Enjoying one of these before dinner helps to fill me up a bit so I’m not starving when I sit down at the table. And, they have incredible health benefits. Particularly gut health benefits. According to Dr. Christiane Northrup’s website: “By...

How Your Sleep Affects Your Weight + 6 Tips For Restful Sleep

  Most people understand that the foods they eat or don’t eat, and whether or not they regularly exercise, all factor in to whether or not they will be able to lose weight. But one thing I’ve found that most people don’t fully understand, is how much your sleep affects your weight loss and your ability to maintain your ideal weight. It all has to do with your hormones, and this is something we talk about more in-depth in my Ditch the Diets 28-Day program. There are a few different hormones in play when it comes to how...

Vanilla Apricot Almond Bites

  You all already know I’m a fan of healthy + delicious homemade snack bites. So I’ll keep this pretty brief and get right to the recipe. Why do I love homemade protein snack bites? Because they’re a breeze to make, and no matter what you put in them (well, almost…), they’re going to turn out delicious. You can seriously use whatever nuts, seeds, dried fruits and other ingredients that you have on hand in your pantry, and please don’t ever be afraid to make substitutions with my recipes if you...

Buddha Bowl How-To: They’re Simple & Delicious

  Eating a healthy and balanced meal couldn’t be any easier than throwing together a Buddha Bowl. But what exactly is a Buddha Bowl? It’s basically a meal-sized bowl of simple, healthy foods. They’re also called Bowls of Goodness, Macro Bowls, and Glory Bowls, and the idea started out years ago as a vegetarian or vegan meal. They’ve made their way around a few times, and people are changing them to meet their own dietary needs. All it takes is having a couple of basic, healthy ingredients on-hand (more on that...

The One Meal Prep Step You Simply Can’t Skip

The One Meal Prep Step You Simply Can’t Skip

  One of my top three tips for living a lifestyle of good health, weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight is to prepare more of your own foods at home. But, I also understand that life gets busy, and sometimes that isn’t so easy. One thing that makes eating at home easier and simpler is to do some prep work on the weekends, so that when you’re in the middle of the weeknight hustle and bustle, you’ve already got some healthy options prepped and ready to be turned into a healthy, homemade (or semi-homemade) meal. And...

Good Health Starts With Your Cells

  Listen up beauties, because today I’m sharing some info that will impact your health in every single way! Good health begins at the cellular level.  Blown away? You’ve probably already heard this before, but do you really know what it means? It means that every single day, you want to do things that nourish and support your cells. Why? Because your body can only be as healthy as its parts. And your cells are the most basic building blocks of your body. (Not basic as in boring. Basic as in, that’s what your body is...

Honey Peanut Butter Banana & Chia Oats

  Whoever first said breakfast is the most important meal of the day wasn’t making that stuff up. And, what about the guy who said to eat breakfast like a king? (And lunch like a prince, dinner like a pauper…) I think they were both tapped into the knowledge that a healthy breakfast is important for so many reasons — more energy, decreased cravings, balanced mood, weight loss and weight management, and more. Oats are a wonderful way to start the day. Oats are a whole grain, and probably one of the most nutrient-dense...

Water Before Anything

Water Before Anything

The very first thing I ask a client when they tell me their weight loss has stalled or that they’re struggling to maintain their weight is, “How much water are you drinking every day?” And yes, I want to know how many ounces. Why is water so important? Because our bodies are made up of the stuff! Our bodies are made up of somewhere around 65-70% water. Essentially, we can’t live WITHOUT it. The benefits of water in our bodies are too numerous to name here, but here are some of the most noticeable ones: Increased weight...

Create Rituals To Master A Healthy Lifestyle

Ritual (rit-u-al): noun, a series of actions or type of behavior regularly and invariably followed by someone. Our daily and weekly rituals are important. They keep us on track throughout the day and the week, and give us something to look forward to. Rituals should be things we enjoy. When we know something we enjoy is coming, it’s easier for us to keep going with our day and our week. The ritual serves as a reward. Our daily and weekly healthy lifestyle rituals are no different. They help to keep us on track with our goals, and they...
