Eating to reduce stress

Perfect. A four letter word.

They say we teach what we most need to learn. Within the past few weeks I’ve caught myself procrastinating, and sometimes abandoning, my desires for what I want, because I didn’t think it was “perfect” or that I wouldn’t be able to perform “perfectly.” I was beating myself up, and then, the other day, a […]

How was the challenge created?

I received an interesting message today that at first upset me, and then I took a step back and put myself in his shoes and realized if I were him I would feel the same way. He accused me of copying his challenge program. When I read it, I could see why, they are very […]

It’s time to GO BEYOND!

It’s February! How’s the New Year’s “eat healthy, exercise more, lose weight, tone up, feel amazing” resolution coming? I’m going to guess if you’re like me, and millions of others out there, it’s buried somewhere on the bottom of the longer than your arm “to do” list, and everything else except for eating kale and […]

I’m A Chips & Salsa Addict

There. I admit it. Let me say it again. I’m a chips & salsa addict. Nope. Not quite  good enough. I’M A CHIPS & SALSA ADDICT!

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love it for the food and for the opportunity to share quality time free of expectations with my friends and loved ones. It’s a time to gather around a feast and get intimate. But at the heart of it, it is a feast. It’s the feast of all feasts […]

A secret to healthier holidays

I just love the holidays, especially the holiday cheer part. If you’re like me, you probably find yourself opting for the gingerbread latte over the green tea, and taking more glimpses of the cocktail menu than your typical, “I’ll just have water,” order. While this may make the waitress’s tip a little bit fatter, it […]

Chipotle Glazed Sweet Potato Tacos with Black Beans & Purple Cabbage Slaw

Meatless Mondays is a movement that was started in the US in 2003 in association with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the “cut out meat once a week campaign” has spread across the world and is active in 23 countries. This movement is near and dear to my heart because it’s […]

Super Bowl food hangover – time to cleanse!

I don’t know about you, but I still feel like I have a food hangover from the Super Bowl. I definitely over did it eating things I never ever eat – I admit it I had about 4 pigs in a blanket – what was I thinking? I’m definitely paying for it now. Did you […]

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, […]
