Not every enjoyable food has to be completely avoided when you’re trying to eat healthy or lose weight.

Oh heck, what am I saying? There aren’t ANY enjoyable foods that ever have to be completely avoided!

For instance, I tend to shy away from pre-made burgers in the store. Even though the convenience is incredibly tempting as a busy mom, there...

You don’t have to ditch your favorite recipes if you’re trying to eat healthy.

Of course, as long as you stick with your good habits a majority of the time, there’s nothing wrong with the occasional meal that doesn’t fit your normal standards of healthy eating.

Protein recommendations are all over the map. Is it the most annoying thing in life?

Well, maybe.

It’s a toss up between that and the “close door” button that doesn’t actually do anything on elevators. Between those two things, it’s enough to drive a person crazy.

Whether you hire a coach or not isn’t the point. You may not be ready or able to take that step. That’s ok. Although I believe it’s something everyone s...

75% of Americans say they eat healthy. Yet 70% of Americans are overweight.

Clearly there’s a disconnect somewhere.

It might not be your fault. You can do exactly what you’ve been told is healthy and still not get results. Some of it is just bad information. But even advice that caused great success for one person could be wrong for you.

I’ll tell you why that is, so you can find what’s right for you.

At the Heart of It

If a person in Australia wants to get to the North Pole, it makes sense that they’d need to head, well… north.

I don’t like feeling stuck in the kitchen all day. That’s why I try to come up with recipes like these where I can spend less time cooking, but get multiple meals out of it in return.

Of course, I want to do it in a way that won’t compromise my diet, too…
