One-Day Detox Diet {What to eat after a day of not so great eating}

Posted September 5, 2014 in detox, healthy eating, health and 4 more

Although I do eat healthy most of the time, I occasionally have a day that's not so fab.

I usually follow the 80/20 rule - 80% of what I eat is whole foods and 20% is things I love to indulge in like dark chocolate, champagne, wine, ice cream, etc.

But there is (very) occasionally a whole day or most of a day that is full of crap. This week, I had one of those days.

Weekend Recap {Oct. 24-26}

Posted October 27, 2014 in Weekend Recap, weekend, Piloxing and 10 more

Sometimes I don't realize how unhealthy I've eaten over the weekend until I write my Weekend Recap. Frozen yogurt, nachos, pizza, beer, candy corn, cupcakes. Yeah, this weekend definitely didn't win me the healthiest health blogger of the year award. 

But my weekend was also mixed with some healthy activities - a massage, Piloxing and yoga. Pizza + yoga = balance ????

Here's how the weekend went...

I've been a busy lady over here! These last few months of 2015 are going to be jammed packed with awesome stuff. I have some big things coming for you!

This isn't a typical post for me, but I thought I would share some life updates just as I would if we were having coffee together. Like a little catch up date. I'm sharing some exciting projects I'm working on, some updates on things I've told you about and more!

My First Juice Cleanse

Posted January 26, 2016 in juice cleanse, juicing, cleanse and 3 more


I recently completed my first juice cleanse!

I've always wanted to try a juice cleanse, but I've never taken the leap to invest in a bottled juice cleanse and I've never done the research to do a homemade juice cleanse.

But by mid-January, I was feeling like I needed an energy boost. With more grey days than sunny days and working extra hard toward my goals for 2016, I was feeling a bit run down. I had already cleaned up my diet a bit after the holidays, but I just wanted an extra nutrition/energy boost.

Since it was my first juice cleanse experience, I decided to try a one-day cleanse...and the BF decided to join me! 

We picked up five Suja juices each at Target. But, you can also order their one-day or three-day cleanses online. We chose Suja because it was very affordable.

Join me for Sugar Free April!!

Posted March 28, 2016 in Sugar Free April, 28-Day detox, healthy eating and 8 more

I'm going sugar free in April, and I'd love for you to join me!

As a gal with a major sweet tooth, I know what it's like to have out of control cravings for sugar. I also know what it feels like to be eating a diet FULL of sugar. I used to feel bloated, fatigued and guilty.

I'm currently transitioning to an anti-inflammatory diet to deal with a health issue, and the two things that are hardest for me to ditch - sugar and dairy. I recently realized that I was indulging in a few too many dark chocolate covered almonds and enjoying too many extra sweets. 

So in April, we're all getting rid of sugar! Why? Well, for one, sugar has no nutrients, no protein, no healthy fats and no enzymes. So it's not doing us any good. But here's just a few things sugar is doing to our bodies...

Guided 5-Day Real Food Detox {First Look}

Detoxing and cleansing have become incredibly on-trend over the past few years. You've probably seen ads for slimming or detox teas, fat blocking pills, body wraps that promise to melt away fat and lemon juice detoxes that promise you'll look like Beyonce. 

I've never been a fan of these detoxes because I believe that you can cleanse the body in a safe and nourishing way. 

I'm currently in the middle of creating and testing my 5-Day Real Food Detox, and I'm getting so excited to share it with you.

My Top 4 Foods for Daily Detox

Posted March 16, 2017 in daily detox, detoxifying foods, detox and 4 more

Adding detoxifying foods into your diet is super easy! These four detox foods can improve your digestion, reduce inflammation and provide your body with a lot of nourishment.

Top-4-Foods-for-daily-detox-1.png#asset:

I've been on a journey to balance my hormones to eliminate hormonal headaches and migraines, improve my energy and lose some extra weight my body has been holding onto. 

Working closely with my functional medicine doctor, I've made some dietary changes (eliminating dairy) and some lifestyle changes (getting off birth control and adding supplements to my daily routine). My hormonal migraines have been completely eliminated and my energy has increased so much. 

I recently had my six-month appointment to go over my blood work results, and I learned that my estrogen levels are still high (which is causing some PMS symptoms) and my liver enzymes are high. So I've been increasing the amount of detoxifying foods in my diet to assist my liver in its cleansing process. 

While I've added more detoxifying foods into my diet for a very specific reason, everyone can benefit from increasing the amount of cleansing foods in their daily diet.

How many times have you started a diet, detox or cleanse with big goals to lose weight and get back on track with healthy eating only to give up because you felt deprived and restricted?

A detox or cleanse can be a great way to set a foundation for eating healthy, nourishing, whole foods. But it can be frustrating and overwhelming to know exactly how to choose a detox, stick to it and actually create lasting success. 

I'm here to help guide you through a spring detox! 

Spring is the perfect time to detox. It's a season of renewal and rebirth. It's a great time to let go of things that are no longer serving you, and make room for new beginnings and growth. 

Detoxing your body of foods and drinks that are making you feel tired, bloated and moody, and have caused you to gain weight will allow you to go into spring feeling light, energized and motivated.

Weekend Recap {March 23-26, 2017} - Spring Break

Posted March 27, 2017 in Weekend Recap, yoga, meal prep and 6 more

I'm back to work after a glorious four-day weekend. Last week was spring break, and work was painfully slow. So I took last minute vacation days on Thursday and Friday with no plans!

It was the best thing ever to have a long weekend without having to travel somewhere or have a million things to do. I ended up enjoying slow mornings, working on my health coaching business, taking my online business classes, hanging out with my niece, drinking a lot of coffee and eating delicious food.

I'll give you a condensed recap with the highlights since I did a lot of things...

{Quick} Vegan Meal Prep

You have the best intentions all day to come home and make a healthy, homemade meal. But work ended up being crazy stressful, and you're exhausted. So you get take out or eat chips and guac with a glass of wine for dinner. 

Trust me, I know how this plays out. I don't know how many times I've eaten tortilla chips and guac or eggs and toast for dinner because I was exhausted and didn't feel like cooking. 

Eating a lazy meal on occasion isn't a big deal, but when it's a habit you're most likely not getting the nutrition that your body needs. This could lead to low energy, weight gain and more. 

Creating a meal planning and meal prepping routine will set you up for success throughout the week, and make eating healthy easy even on busy days.

Weekend Recap {March 31 - April 2, 2017}

Posted April 4, 2017 in Weekend Recap, detox, yoga and 3 more

Why do weekends fly by so quickly!?! I always feel like I need another day to do all the things I never got to over the weekend, or just relax and do nothing.

I ended up working quite a bit over the weekend because I had a workshop out of town and I also had a meeting for gathering information and insight about my business. 

But the BF and I made time for fun (a movie and a hike) and time with family.

This detoxifying berry smoothie is refreshing, full of cleansing ingredients, and the perfect combination of tart and sweet.

While I make green smoothies with plant protein powder most of the time, I occasionally like to blend up a berry smoothie. 

I love this smoothie because it's super simple, full of nutritious ingredients, really hydrating and reminds me of spring and summer.

My Current Favorite Affordable Natural Beauty Products

Posted April 13, 2017 in affordable natural beauty products, detox, real food detox and 3 more

There are thousands of chemicals in beauty products, many of which can be absorbed in the body. Luckily, there are many high quality and affordable natural beauty and skincare products.

I recently created a brand new workshop all about detoxing, and presented it at my favorite yoga studio - Avani Yoga Studio

It was really amazing to give a workshop there as a wellness expert because I've always really admired and looked up to the yoga teachers at Avani. It's where I fell in love with yoga and deepened my practice through yoga teacher training. 

Because I believe that living a healthy, happy life is about so much more than food, I included information about detoxing your beauty routine in my workshop. 

It reminded me just how far I've come with my skincare and beauty regimen. Over the past few years, I've transitioned to using (mostly) natural products. I've found a few products that I absolutely love and use all the time, but I'm always finding new products. 

I love skincare products and makeup, and I love testing out new products. So I thought I would share some of my recent (more affordable) favorites.
