Sweets can cause blood sugar spikes, tooth decay, diabetes, they increase the risk of cancer, causes weight gain, contribute to leaky gut and candida issues, poor sleep, energy highs and lows and so much more. Read more

When most people start out on their health or weight release journey they think they are doomed to a life of bland and boring salads!

I love salads, but I’ll admit that even I can get into a rut with my salads and have the same thing over and over again.

But the thing is salads are really easy and can be fun to experiment with. Read more

Tired, sluggish, looking for something, craving anything, sweet, salty, crunchy or caffeinated to snack on and keep you awake so you don’t completely crash energy-wise.

Power Boost Hot Chocolate

Energy Boost Hot ChocolateGrowing up hot chocolate was a favorite of mine. I have fond memories of waking up early in the morning with my dad to have a cup of hot chocolate and usually listen to some rock classics together.

Back then it was Nesquik in my milk. Not exactly a health conscious choice, but then again I was a kid and my parents nor I knew any better. Sad, but true.

Since I began my own health journey several years ago I knew I had to get that out of my life.

Mango Salsa with Lime Salted Brown Rice Tortilla Chips

I discovered mango salsa a few years ago and have loved it ever since.  The first time I tried it was from Whole Foods.  The flavors were great, but it had a little too much heat to it for my liking so I decided I would make my own.

Cauliflower is an amazing versatile vegetable.  It is great raw, tossed in salads, stir-fries, soups, roasted and steamed.

But even with all those wonderful preparation options one may still get in a rut with how to spruce this vegetable up. 

That’s why I’m going to share with you my riced cauliflower recipe that you’ll only have to make once, but can be utilized in several different meals throughout the week.

My Favorite Gluten Free Blueberry Pancakes

 

I’m going gluten free, again.

It’s been about 5 years since I’ve removed 90% of gluten from my diet. I don’t keep gluten in the house so the 10% equates to times of dining out or traveling.  During the last 5 years I have went completely gluten free for stretches of 6 months at a time.

And you know what? I feel better each time I do. I think more clearly, my body has less aches and pains, I have more energy, I don’t have the need to nap, which in return allows me to get more done. Read more
