Nutrient-Packed Cranberry Sauce (No Sugar Added)
I didn’t plan on sharing this cranberry sauce recipe with you. Not because I wanted to keep it a secret, but because it didn’t exist until about an hour ago. Today is one of those days when almost every hour is scheduled as I finish up deadlines, emails, and pack in preparation for traveling for Thanksgiving. And yet...the cranberries were calling to me. So here we are.
When I think of a recipe, it’s hard to resist (especially when it’s quick and easy)! I love cranberry sauce, but as you kno…
Fall Friday Favorites
It’s November! Living in North Carolina has helped me to really embrace the changing seasons. I love that the weather gets chilly without lasting forever. Right now, the weather has been absolutely perfect for hiking. Most Sundays, Matt and I have been starting the day hiking on some of the nearby trails by our house. Walking through the woods right along the water is such a rejuvenating way to start the day and recharge from the week. I hope wherever you are, you’re enjoying the fall vibes!

10 Minute Dinners When You've Done Zero Prep
One common misconception and excuse I hear a lot is that eating healthy takes more time. Likely that comes from the idea that you have to be spending hours meal prepping in order to turn to healthy options, but that’s totally not true. If meal prepping is something you enjoy, fantastic! But for a lot of my clients, they’re busy and need fast nourishing options to turn to without spending a ton of time in the kitchen. I completely get that!
I’m balancing two careers that I love, but that…
