A lighter version of Holiday Cheer – Eggless Egg Nog

Received this recipe in my inbox today from Pure Bar and just had to share it. I’ve always wanted to like egg nog but just couldn’t get over all the eggs and the cream, just not my thing. For those of you who’ve always enjoyed egg nog perhaps the fact that you only need a blender, […]

You had me at, Hello!

Lately, I can’t help but notice just how people’s perspective is so inward rather than out. It seems wherever I am everyone seems to be in their own little world, on their own little planet, oblivious to, or maybe just ignoring, just about everything that’s going on around them, unless of course it has something […]

Somebody asked me the other day, “How do you do it? You have so much going on, do you sleep like 2 hours a day?” We had been speaking about my new adventure as a health coach, as well as my company Sprout Strategy, and all the other varied things I have going on in […]

My obsession with Vega

I’m crazy about making my morning shake. It’s become the ritual that I look forward to each morning, and when I’m traveling it’s a huge source of stress to find somewhere I can get one. I just don’t feel like my day is off to a great start without it. I’ve always added a protein […]

Back into the kitchen

I never used to be a big cook. It was actually one of those things that caused so much anxiety and stress I pretty much stayed as far away from it as I could. In fact, John will joke about when he met me I was the master of the microwave (which is another story […]
