How To Not Eat All The Things When WFH

how to not eat all the things including chocolate cake


1. Do a fridge and pantry makeover to remove the most tempting things that leave you feeling guilty or unsatisfied.



You can do this gradually or go all Marie Kondo in one fell swoop, but removing the items that aren't leaving you feeling joy or satisfied AFTER eating are best eliminated from the kitchen.  If you're upset with yourself after mindlessly consuming a bag of chips or if those packaged cookies just added fuel to the fire-that-is-your-sweet-tooth are those items really worth keepin…

Charleston Healthy Eats

Charleston


Today I'm sharing our favorite Charleston healthy eats. One of my favorite things about traveling is getting to try new restaurants and food. I am all about enjoying local indulgences when traveling (we're about to go to Belgium and you better believe there will be beer, chocolate, and waffles involved), but I also like to balance that with healthy and delicious options. I like feeling good while I'm traveling AND once I return home, ya know?



Matt and I make a pretty great team when w…

High Protein Honey Almond Butter

You know what would be cool? If we could maybe add some extra hours to the day. Or if sleeping wasn't so darn important. Sleeping is pretty great so I don't want to completely eliminate it, but if we could rest for 3-4 hours and feel totally refreshed that would be fantastic. I've been holding out on you guys and enjoying this high protein almond butter for a while now. I've been looking forward to sharing it, but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day to get that done. I h…

Lightened Up Creamy Vegan Avocado Pesto

For once in my life I made a recipe and I got my act together enough to share it all in the same week. I feel obligated to share this creamy avocado pesto ASAP while we're in the middle of summer and basil is thriving. Even my basil! It's the only thing I'm growing that's really doing well. Zero complaints here. I adore basil. And when life gives me basil, I make pesto.



Except not traditional pesto, because where's the fun in that. Remember when I discovered the Good Foods dips at ALD…

Hello, lovely people. If you're looking for a super easy, unique, and totally crowd pleasing dip for the 4th of July week, I've got you! This pineapple jalapeño dip is sweet, summery, and refreshing with a little kick of heat at the end. It's totally addicting.

Like kind of literally.

From Macros to Micros: The Popeye Approach

A New Approach to Healthy Eating



It has been about six months since my first blog post when I talked about focusing on how foods make you feel instead of following strict rules from the latest trendy diet. This week I wanted to take that notion a step further and focus on adding to each meal rather than taking away. I'm talking about stepping away from tracking every fat, carb, protein, and calorie, taking a deep breath, and focusing on the nutrients, peeps.



I am a member of several work…
