Cranberry Nut Baked Oatmeal (Vegan, Gluten Free)

My morning routine has definitely changed. I don’t really have time to do the whole warm water with lemon thing or make a protein pancake from scratch. I’m lucky if I can drink my almond milk lattes hot. The Nespresso machine I got for Christmas has been my best friend. Cold breakfasts have become the […]

Getting ready for the biggest night in Football each year is something I have always looked forward to. Buffalo Chicken anything and Mexican dishes are two of my favorite foods.

The Heaviest I’ve Ever Weighed

It’s funny how when you get pregnant, there are some things you never forget to do, like taking a vitamin every morning, yet you forget other things that used to cause severe anxiety like moving your car for street cleaning.

The OG of Green Smoothies

As a Barry’s Bootcamp instructor, I try to be creative when coming up with my class choreography. However, a squat will always be a squat regardless if I call it a pistol, sumo, thruster or whatever.
