I had a huge demand for a good list of healthy snacks! You ask, I answer!  When it comes to snacking, my opinion is that it’s best to stick to fruits and veggies. But that gets old sometimes! So here is a list of 25 of my favorites!  **Note – I didn’t make up ANY of these snacks. The links will take you to blogs that have the recipes posted!**   Bell...

The 21 Day Fix is taking the health world by storm. It’s an amazing way to lose weight, get healthy, learn portion control, and revamp your diet.  One complaint I’ve heard over and over again is that it’s just not set up well for those who choose the vegan/vegetarian life style. And it’s true. With the original plan, the only protein options that are compatible with a vegetarian life are:  – eggs – egg whites  – yogurt  – greek yogurt  – Shakeology  –...

I know one of the hardest things about the 21 Day Fix is coming up with a meal plan and sticking to it. I know this from experience! I always say I’ll figure it out as the day goes and it never ends up working out.  So yesterday I sat down and figured out a meal plan for this next week. It’s simple and easy and if I follow it, I know I’ll have a successful week.  If you want to check out the meal plan, click here.  Share Share this:PrintTweetEmailMorePocketShare on Tumblr...

Soooo… I decided to take a shot at the 3 Day Refresh. What is the 3 Day Refresh, you ask? It’s a 3 day gentle cleanse that allows your body to detox without starving. It’s a straightforward program to lose weight, get a clean break from bad nutrition habits and feel immediately cleaner, lighter and more healthy‚Ķwithout starving! I was skeptic about trying it for a few reasons.  It seemed like a “quick fix” and I’m not into those kinds of things.  It SAYS you won’t be hungry...

Seriously. There is pumpkin EVERYWHERE. And it’s so delicious. BUT you are on a diet. You can’t possible eat any of that pumpkin stuff because it tastes SO good that it must be bad for you… right??? WRONG. Pumpkin is GOOD for you! On the 21 Day Fix, it satisfies one of those dreaded green containers. It’s true! You CAN have pumpkin pie this holiday season and NOT go off of your meal plan.  The best part about this recipe is that it’s literally takes about 3o seconds of prep and 5 minutes of cooking (in...

I have a few challengers that DREAD the weekend. They feel like it just ruins all the progress they’ve made all week. And the truth is, a bad weekend CAN set you back a little bit. I recently heard a pod cast by Chalene Johnson where she talks about how to LOSE weight this weekend so when you step on the scale on Monday, the number is LOWER than it was on Friday. Wouldn’t that be amazing???  I strongly recommend you check out the podcast, but here is a recap of the tips she gives:  So who is ready to lose weight...

I know a LOT of people are doing the 21 Day Fix program. It’s a GREAT program with an emphasis on eating healthy as well as working out. It was designed by Autumn Calabrese, a celebrity fitness trainer and bikini competition competitor. The program uses a container system to help you measure out how much food you should be eating. It teaches clean eating and portion control. It is a nutrition program that you can maintain long term, not just a crash diet. I LOVE how much food I get to eat with this program. Because I’m nursing,...

One of the question I get more than anything else is “Is it safe to workout and eat healthy while I’m nursing?” I know, most people think that just by nursing you can lose all your baby weight. NOT TRUE. At least not for me. I’m not a doctor, so you should for sure consult with one before doing anything but… studies have shown that it is very much safe to workout and eat healthy while nursing. BUT you don’t want to:  – follow a super restrictive calorie diet. In fact, you need an extra...

I have recently decided to become a Beachbody coach. Beachbody is a company that makes exercise DVDs and products that help people to reach their weight loss and healthy lifestyle goals. I have been a Beachbody customer for quite awhile and have contemplated becoming a coach for a long time. I used Beachbody programs to lose weight after I had my second baby. I joined a challenge group and had amazing success. I was able to lose 15 pounds in the first month of my challenge group. As time went on, I kind of forgot about Beachbody,...
