Get your greens before 9am

By

For decades, mothers everywhere have encouraged their families to eat a good breakfast, and they’re right. But all that changed when Kellogg’s hit the scene in 1906.  Since then, our idea of breakfast has been one of convenience and based on an addiction to sugar. Therefore this week, my goal is to inspire you to cook your breakfast and say goodbye to cardboard box crap.

Here are five Instagram worthy pics of my go-to breakfast plates. Eating this way helps me achieve my daily vegetable intake, leaves me full for hours, and nourishes my body with essential vitamins like D, B12 and iron. If it works for me, it can work for you.

Veggies aren’t just for lunchtime salads!

favorite things

This last week has been nothing short of crazy.

I also decided to switch gears for this weeks post, to share my current reading material and a recent podcast that really inspired me. Enjoy 🙂READ MORE

If the benchmark is an Oreo milkshake, then yes.

But like most things in health & wellness, nothing is ever straightforward. Nutrition is perplexing, and this may sound like another curveball being thrown your way, but hear me out. That blueberry & kale smoothie may not be as healthy as you think.READ MORE

How to lose weight on a
high-fat low-carb diet,
WITH carbs!!

By

Last week, the U.S. News & World Report published their 2018 list of best diets, placing the high-fat low carb ketogenic diet last. How could this be? I lost four pounds that same week on ‘keto’, and it’s wildly popular with the likes of Kim Kardashian, Gwyneth Paltrow and LeBron James.

The judge’s stance: ketogenic diets are highly restrictive, which they are. Could you live off 5% carbohydrates, 10% protein and 85% fat? Turns out, you may not need to. Mark Sisson, author of The Keto Reset Diet says it’s possible to have your cake and be keto too.READ MORE
