Chocolate Avocado Protein Mousse 

I’ve been done Whole 30 for a week now! I quickly realized however, that my body does not like sugar. I may have gotten into a chocolate bunny or two, some reese peanut butter cups, AND girl guide cookies hiding in my freezer (gluten filled and everything!)
So I realize after being on a clean

Whole 30! 2/3 Complete

And just like that, I am 2/3 of the way finished Whole 30! Honestly it doesn’t even feel like I am on a specific “diet” or have any limitations on my current eating habits. It’s just, life. Someone made a face when I said I couldn’t have any wine at a restaurant and it didn’t

Whole 30: 1/3 Complete! 

Officially 1/3 through this crazy journey and I feel absolutely amazing. My skin is brighter, my sleep is sounder (when I do fall asleep.. still struggle with adjusting after working night shifts), and my energy is soaring. Along with following a Whole 30 diet, I am also keeping active everyday, whether it be running outside,

I know how important it is to monitor your intake, because at the end of the day “calories in vs calories out” is really what’s going to be responsible for weight

Tis the Season for Green Juice

It’s funny how you can eat healthy, nutritious, nutrient dense foods, get plenty of sleep, and still wind up sick on the couch with loads of herbal tea and a roll of toilet paper because you’ve ran out of Kleenex. To be completely honest, I feel a little stupid walking around with a rudolf nose, itchy

Morning Musings

Stress. Thought of to be the most important factors when considering your risk for disease. How do I know this? My textbook says it. And it was a question on my test.. And I nailed it ok? So for now on believe everything I say.
I’m kidding. Listen to what the World Health Organization says and

A Very Intuitive Weekend

I had quite an eventful weekend as usual. And by eventful I mean filled with delicious food. Food I didn’t have to stress about or feel guilty about after consuming, food that I thoroughly enjoyed after every bite, and food that I pushed away from me after I felt full. These are simple actions people
