Soups might be my favorite way to eat vegetables. People underestimate the ease in which they can create a magnificent soup, but the possibility lies underneath their fingertips & blenders at a moment’s notice. Soups are a fantastic way to use up old or ugly veggies, and the best way to take advantage of feeling […]

If there’s one thing I want for you, it’s to quit dieting forever. I fully realize how unconventional & provocative this sounds. That it’s the opposite of what you’ve been told by the experts your whole life. Because I suggest you do “weird” things like: Don’t follow a meal plan to a T. Don’t eat […]

With Easter coming up in just a few days, I’m reminded of how I used to spend soooooo much time thinking about and complicating holiday recipes. Like the one year I spent almost 7 hours making ONE intense, layered and meringued, Christmas cake. Never again. Thankfully, my mom and aunts cook most of our holiday […]

Water is as important as you hear it is. But most people don’t drink enough; It’s the most common nutritional deficiency in this country. Proper hydration is integral to our health and vitality (especially our skin & digestion! I swear my skin has never looked better than when I drink tons of water per day) […]

Avocados are my favorite food. Seriously. Because they are the perfect food. I eat them every day. If I don’t have an avocado in my house, I legit get a small dose of anxiety. I’ve been known to carry one around in my purse. I’ve also eaten one without a knife on a plane. Just […]

Since we’ve been conditioned by society to depend on outside sources & nutritional “gurus” for information, relying only on ourselves has never been an option. The basic premise is intuitive eating […]

Many of you might be wondering why I’m talking about macros when I won’t shut up about our intuition. Some people are COMPLETELY against any numbers. And I get that, especially for people with a history of eating disorders where this can be very triggering. But to be honest, I think there is a place […]

Caprese salad is a life staple. A must. A constant. This classic can be found everywhere. Few salads can get away with such austere components, but this one does.  What’s great about caprese is how simple it is. Even if it doesn’t have super high quality ingredients, it’s good and satisfying. The creamy cheese. The tart, acidic tomato. The […]

Folks flock to intuitive eating because they’re fed up. They’re also: Sick of following rules, of having an external source dictate when and what they should eat Tired of binging Tired of feeling ostracized from social situations. Tired of food lists Tired of thinking about food all the freaking time, Tired of never actually enjoying […]

Macros are the new thing. For a while it was Paleo, and while I do believe Paleo is a really amazing therapeutic food template (because, hello, it’s all REAL FOOD, people!), some don’t find it sustainable in the sense that you need to cook most of your food and it can be hard to eat […]
