Weekend Recap {Fourth of July Weekend 2016}

Posted July 5, 2016 in Weekend Recap, running, HIIT and 8 more

I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend! I took Friday off of work for a quick road trip with the BF, so I had an extra long holiday weekend. It was much needed!

I also started Meal Free July on Friday. I love challenges like this because it allows me to get creative in the kitchen. I made some delicious meals!

I tend to overshare in these recaps, so I tried to be more concise in this week's post! (it's so hard for me because I want to share everything!)

Roasted Winter Vegetables

Posted January 19, 2017 in recipe, healthy recipes, Roasted Winter Vegetables and 4 more


Roasting vegetables is by far my favorite way to cook veggies. They always turn out so flavorful and delicious. 

While I usually stick to roasted Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes - my faves - I also love roasting a variety of root vegetables together. This is especially delicious this time of year when sweet warming foods taste super comforting.

Healthy Crockpot Freezer Meals

Posted January 27, 2017 in Healthy Crockpot Freezer Meals, dairy-free cooking, healthy eating and 5 more


I got super motivated a few weeks ago, and I made eight freezer meals that can be thrown in the crockpot for super easy dinners!

While the BF and I very rarely eat out on weeknights, we often go out to eat a few times on weekends. I love going out for dinner, but it can get expensive. 

Our struggle with cooking at home on weekends is that we are usually running low on fresh produce by the weekend, and we forget to thaw meat from our freezer for the meals we planned. So I thought having meals pre-made that can just cook all day would be the perfect solution for our weekends.

Health Coach Eats {What I Eat in a Day - May 9, 2017}

Posted May 10, 2017 in What I Eat in a Day, Health Coach Eats, vegetarian cooking and 4 more

What's a typical day of eats look like for a health coach? I'm giving you a special look at all of my real life meals!


One of the questions I get asked the most is what I eat on a day-to-day basis or what diet I prescribe to. 

If you've been hanging out here at Sweet Success for awhile, then you probably know that I don't diet. I don't follow a diet and I don't think diets work for the long term. 

I eat based on what I feel my body needs in the moment. How exactly does that work? 

When I'm in the kitchen eyeing the tortilla chips and guacamole (happens frequently), I take a moment to think about how that will serve me, why I'm craving it, and whether I actually need something more nourishing. Sometimes I go for the chips and guac, and other times I make something that will make me feel more satisfied.

It took me awhile to learn how to eat intuitively, and I'm not perfect. But I like the freedom of eating without counting calories or macronutrients, and it allows me to pay attention to what my body needs from day to day.

Chili Lime Tempeh Quinoa Burrito Bowl

Posted June 6, 2017 in Chili Lime Tempeh Quinoa Burrito Bowl, vegan burrito bowl, vegan recipes and 3 more

Burrito bowls are my favorite easy-to-make dinners! I love this vegan tempeh quinoa version with flavorful chili and lime.

I've been surviving on avocado toast and eggs over the past couple of weeks because I haven't been meal prepping on weekends. So I decided to get myself together and make a proper dinner this week. 

I bought tempeh after the fermented foods module in the Your Healthiest You program with Robin Youkilis. Yes, even a health coach needs a health coach! I spend a lot of my time helping others reach their health goals, and I often need a little support in reaching my own. 

I tried tempeh years ago, but didn't love the way I prepared it so I never bought it again. But I'm working to incorporate more fermented foods into my diet, so I thought I'd give tempeh another try.
