Detoxifying Green Soup + Why I Love A Liquid-Only Day

  Since I returned from my health & education retreat at Sanoviv Medical Institute a few weeks ago, I’ve been loving the practice of incorporating a liquid day (or partial liquid day) into my weekly routine. At Sanoviv, they teach holistic health and that food is medicine for our bodies, both for prevention and for healing. Sanoviv practices a liquid day once a week with their patients and guests. It’s designed to give the digestive system a rest, and it consists of a variety of smoothies, green drinks, hot and cold teas,...

Today Is My 38th Birthday…Here’s What I Know For Sure

Today Is My 38th Birthday…Here’s What I Know For Sure

Today I turn 38 years old. I can honestly say I feel really excited about where I am in this moment and where my life is going. I can’t say I’ve always felt this kind of peace. And the reason for that,  I believe, is because up until about 5 or 6 years ago, I wasn’t always necessarily making my choices based on what I wanted. I often made decisions based on what I thought others expected of me, or would think of me, whether they’d approve, or whether they’d accept me if they knew the real me. And now, at 38 years...

My Top Takeaways From My Health Retreat

My Top Takeaways From My Health Retreat

I just recently returned home from my first ever health retreat at the beautiful Sanoviv Medical Institute in Rosarito, Mexico on the Baja coast overlooking the Pacific Ocean. I spent 5 days at this magical location with the most incredible group of people. We laughed, we cried, we bonded, we detoxed, we drank green juice, we enjoyed delicious organic meals together and we enjoyed what we all agreed were some of the best spa treatments we’ve ever had, at home or in our travels. Sanoviv is a state-of-the-art, fully-licensed hospital and health...

The 7 Tools I Leaned On When I Quit Alcohol

The 7 Tools I Leaned On When I Quit Alcohol

I am asked weekly if not daily by all the beautiful women in my life, whether I know them well or whether they are an online acquaintance, why I quit drinking alcohol and what it’s done for me in my life by doing so. I think about how I want to answer this question a lot, but honestly it’s hard to convey every single thing behind my choice. I’ve talked about it before in a previous blog post and have shared my top 5 learnings on my one-year mark of living sober. But my reasoning for quitting alcohol seems to be ever...

Easy Kale Cheeseburger Skillet

  This recipe is a super simple weeknight meal that the whole family will love. Substitute ground turkey for the ground beef if you prefer. Be sure to roast the sweet potatoes ahead of time. I like to cut mine into 1-inch cubes, and roast at 425 degrees on a silpat or parchment paper for about 20 minutes. Roasted sweet potatoes are a veggie that you’ll typically find in my refrigerator at all times — they are so versatile in different dishes. Easy Kale Cheeseburger Skillet Makes 4-6 servings INGREDIENTS: 1 large red bell...

Sweet Chili Glazed Rice + Vegetable Bowl

Sweet Chili Glazed Rice + Vegetable Bowl

  Sometimes plain old roasted veggies won’t do. You want something a little more flavorful. A little bit spicy. Maybe you want your veggies even just a tiny bit sweet (but not too much because, sugar). That’s where this recipe comes in. This is an upgraded basic veggie sauté with flavor from the toasted sesame oil, coconut aminos (basically a healthier version of soy sauce, but tamari or lite soy sauce works here, too), and the sweet ginger chili sauce. The recipe as is is more of a side dish to your meal. Add your favorite...

How To Stock A Healthy Pantry (Video Blog)

We eat what we see. That’s why I believe in the importance of keeping a well organized, well stocked pantry. If your pantry is organized, clear of junky processed foods and well stocked with healthier options, then it goes without saying that you (and your family members!) will be more likely to choose healthier foods.  You’ll also know what you’ve got on hand, which will save you money at the grocery store. Who hasn’t bought items at the store, gotten home and put them away, and then found them at the back of the...

Pasta With Shrimp, Zucchini and Goat Cheese

Pasta With Shrimp, Zucchini and Goat Cheese

Who says you can’t eat clean and enjoy pasta, too? I say you can! This is my favorite weeknight dish at the moment, and my kids love it, too. I buy frozen shrimp (wild caught or responsibly farmed), and set the bag in the refrigerator the night before I plan to cook it so it can thaw. Cook the pasta and pre-chop the veggies on the weekend to further save time when you get ready to make this dish. This dish is loaded with veggies (read: fiber) and protein (shrimp and goat cheese) to really fill you up, meaning you can use a smaller...

9 Things To Do To Bounce Back After Vacation (Or Anytime!)

9 Things To Do To Bounce Back After Vacation (Or Anytime!)

  My family and I just returned from a week of travel, and I noticed I was feeling less energetic than usual, lethargic even. I felt heavy and my clothes were a bit snug. And my digestive system was less than stellar. After a vacation or a long weekend, it can be hard to get back into the swing with healthy habits. On vacation we typically allow more treats than usual. We order fries when we normally wouldn’t, we have the chocolate cake (every night), we skip the workout, we stay up too late. And that’s fine, that’s why...
