Eating for Energy

Posted April 6, 2016 in Eating for Energy, energy, food is fuel and 4 more


For me, eating was either about pleasure or coping. I was either eating something because I liked the taste or I was overeating instead of coping with what I was going through.

When I began running and working out regularly, I finally realized that food was also fuel. It could make me feel great or run down during workouts. 

I later realized that food isn't just fuel for exercise. We can eat to energize our bodies for daily life.

It took me a million years to figure this out and I don't want you to spend as much time as I did sifting through books, magazines, blogs and articles! Which is why I'm sharing everything I know at my next workshop!!

Vanilla Almond Energy Balls

Posted April 19, 2016 in energy balls, Vanilla Almond Energy Balls, vegan protein and 4 more


I don't think I could survive without energy balls. I've been making them almost every week, and snacking on them before I workout, when I have a sweet tooth or when I need an afternoon pick me up.

They are the perfect sweet snack that isn't processed and full of junk!

While I've made many versions, I've been making these Vanilla Almond Energy Balls a lot lately. They're similar to my Post-Workout Vanilla Protein Balls, but a bit more simple. I was inspired to simplify my recipe to make them more adaptable after I made Keri Glassman's No-Bake Peanut Butter Protein Balls.

I like this recipe because it's the perfect base for an energy ball. You can add whatever mix ins you would like…dried cranberries, dried blueberries, mini dark chocolate chips, chia seeds, etc.

Or you can roll the energy ball in whatever topping you like…unsweetened coconut, hemp seeds, chia seeds, etc. 

You can make them your own!

I wanted to let you know that my next LIVE in-person workshop is happening soon and I want to extend a personal invite to you!

The topic of my next class is women's health. As women, we tend to take care of every one and everything around us and we forget to take care of ourselves. This can lead to health issues, feeling run down and not feeling fulfilled. 

In my upcoming class, you'll learn seven ways to improve your health now, how food can change your life and how to bring joy back to your life. 

Here are details…

9:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 8 

Central Community College - Kearney, 3519 2nd Ave. 

Reserve your seat here.

Think you're too busy to show up in person to a class on health? Just by attending this class, you're making the first step toward change and beginning to end the cycle of unhealthy behaviors. That's powerful. 

And because I want you to live your healthiest and happiest life, I'm offering a few more classes this month...

Weekend Recap {Feb. 24-26, 2017}

Posted February 27, 2017 in Weekend Recap, Eating for Energy, meal prep and 4 more

I'm back! I took a little break from blogging last week. 

I've been working extra hard on my health coaching business (I had two workshop last week), I started teaching a new yoga class, I'm working on building my nutrition team and I just didn't feel like I had anything left in the tank for blogging. 

My weekend was all about catching up. After being sick and then being at the cabin last weekend, the BF and I needed a weekend at home to resettle.
