Why I’m Finally Ready To Announce This

Contradicting what you may think, some experts in the nutrition field will say no, while others say yes. It’s confusing who to believe. In theory most of us want our families to eat the […]

My Story: Eating Disorder Awareness Week 2019

My Experience Intermittent Fasting and Breastfeeding

One of the most popular questions I’ve been getting on Instagram is about Intermittent Fasting and nursing aka breastfeeding. People want to know first, if I’m doing IF, second, if I’m still nursing and lastly, if I’ve noticed a drop in my supply.  Short answer is no, I have not noticed a drop in my […]

How much weight I have to lose isn’t weighing me down

It’s funny how things change in ways you never expected. I fully expected to be overwhelmed with two children but I’m shocked to feel rather stress free. Everything is a phase, I know that now.

Farm raised seafood has been under attack among food activists recently but I learned last month that not all farm raised seafood is created equal. I see it at Whole Foods all the time, and if it was really that bad, would they sell it there? I know I’m being naive to think that Whole Foods has […]
