My 5 Go To Breakfasts As a New Mom

I can remember having a 100 calorie English muffin for breakfast with spray butter at 22 years of age. Oh how the times have changed. My breakfasts are now at least 250 calories and made up of nutrient dense foods. Still breastfeeding Tommy in the middle of the night, I wake up starving! On top […]

The Body Nourishing Mama Smoothie

I’m lucky that I enjoy how most healthy foods taste but there are a few that I detest. One of them is turmeric. Unfortunately for me, it is traditionally used by breastfeeding women. One of my favorite ways to mask the flavor of turmeric is in smoothies. I created this smoothie recipe to help nourish […]

Half Marathon Training Update + My Long Run Breakfast Recipe Video

Last week, I went to two different classes that had child care for little ones like Tommy. It was awesome but that means, I wasn’t running. Since I either need to wake up before Nick goes to work (and pump before I leave) and run in the dark or go after work when it’s time […]

Tropical Chia Overnight Oats – Vegan, Sugar + Gluten Free

Last year, we had to wait until May for the weather to hit 70F. According to the forecast, we are expected to hit it today – March 9th! It’s not even Spring yet. This kind of weather had me in the mood for something tropical for breakfast. I’ve been on a breakfast meal prep binge […]

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 […]

Vegan Avocado Pumpkin Spice Smoothie | Banana + Protein Powder Free

Some of you may find this truth hard to swallow but not every one likes bananas or protein powder in their smoothies. I know! CRAZY. Today, I have one of my favorite smoothie recipes that is made without either one. Given Thanksgiving is later week, this smoothie mimics one of my favorite desserts without the added […]

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. As long as you know the basic movement keep your weight in your heels, chest open with hips sliding […]

A Cheap & Easy 3 Ingredient Breakfast Idea

I’ve been on the protein pancake bandwagon for years! I’ve been using protein powder in my smoothies after my workouts so I don’t exactly want to have it for breakfast as well. I’ve switched things up a bit by omitting it from my favorite pancakes but still getting 12+ grams of protein. This simple idea […]

I’ve Never… Been To The Caribbean

Today is a happy day. I am on a flight right now to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. I’ve never been to the Caribbean before and could not be more excited. I was invited along with 4 other bloggers to visit Puerto Plata and the North Coast of DR as part of an Adventure Press Trip. […]
