I’ve come to be known by many for being a health nut – in recent years I’ve tried everything from being vegan to gluten-free and lactose-free (sorry cheese!). I quickly learned that there was no diet out there that didn’t lead me to temptation, bad results and ultimate failure. I quickly learned that I was […]
Fad diets are totally in, but paleo is something that I have rooted in my cooking – it focuses on whole, natural ingredients replacing processed food that many generations before us didn’t have. Not only has this style of eating changed the way I look at food, but integrated well into my flexible dieting routine. […]
There’s nothing I love more first thing out the door but to dream about that delicious latte hitting my taste buds matched with a perfectly flaky croissant and creamy butter. A;though we can dream, the reality is that I would easily be a very heavy individual if this was my daily kickstarter. We all know […]
There’s nothing worse than coming home from a long day at work and needing to make dinner. Our minds go straight to frozen or fast food, making it quick and easy for you to get to bed sooner. We often let our guards down by the end of the day due to laziness and let […]
Summer is just around the corner and with the blooming of spring, along comes some rich, beautiful ingredients fresh from Mother Earth to grace our tables. There’s nothing I love more than a recipe that squashes my hunger (or sweet tooth!), but also feeds my body for performance and health. This time of year, I […]
We all have habits in our daily lives – our routine of getting up in the morning, the steps we take each morning upon arriving at work and even the nasty habits like nail biting or procrastination. At this point, we all know that we can change any habit we want, but it’s always harder […]

It’s true, 2018 is here and we all hit the restart button on life. The new year is the perfect time to give yourself goals and create strategies for life that could create greater positivity and happiness. One of the most popular New Year’s resolutions is health and fitness – admittedly, this has definitely been one of mine in the past, but overtime, I have evolved it to be less about losing certain amounts of weight and to be more opened ended for holistic health and wellness. Finding the right goals and routine for you is important in achieving any goal, and with a few guided steps, those who need help in formulating a plan can successfully find true results.
We can all admit that the colder weather makes us little hermits in our homes. The fire’s burning, cocoa cooking and warm, hearty meals stretch the dining room tables to equally warm our hearts. Unfortunately, none of these help us to maintain our fitness goals or healthy bodies (especially the Christmas cookies). Understanding how to make the most of these delicious treats and lazy evenings will make it one step easier to meet your summer body goals this year!
