Tired of complicated diets? Read this.

Wherever you turn, different sources are telling you what foods to eat at what time - and rarely are any two theories the same. This can lead to a lot of frustration, confusion, and failure to stick with one diet, program, or lifestyle. Should you go gluten-free? Keto? Paleo? Should you do a Whole30 or... Continue Reading →

You’ll go bananas for this recipe

I love green bananas, but somehow I always end up buying too many that turn yellow and spotty practically overnight. I can't eat a spotty banana - unless it's baked into a loaf of goodness.

For tea lovers only

Ahh...tea. It's been so popularized in the media these days. Everyone wants (to know) the tea, but I just want to drink it. Seriously, though, tea is so comforting.

It’s National Peanut Butter Cookie Day!

To me, that's something we should celebrate. I LOVE PB. I can still remember the first time I bit into a peanut butter cookie - the buttery, sugary, slightly salty, crunchy, melt-in-your-mouth explosion of goodness was the real deal. I was hooked from day one. Lately, I haven't been indulging in as many cookies and... Continue Reading →

Gimme all the candy

I love sweets. Not really cake or chocolate, but candy. Especially fruity or sour gummy candy. I could have a chocolate bar sitting in my cabinet for months, but a bag of Sour Patch Kids won't even last a day. And forget about sharing. Seriously, gimme all the candy. But, the thing is, that much... Continue Reading →

Transform :20 wasn’t for me

I was recently talking with a friend about how all programs (diet or workout) are not a good fit for everyone. When it comes to your health and well being, you have to do what works for you, not the hundreds or thousands you see on social media. You might remember how I shared that Beachbody's...
