Nutrition Q&A Video – Night Time Snacking, Weight Loss Supplements, and More!

Yes, it’s finally here! After weeks of procrastination, I’ve made the Nutrition Q&A video I promised you on this blog post and this Instagram post! So why the wait? Well, for one, I not only had to find the time to film but also make myself look decent (yes, I washed my hair and put on makeup for this video! #killinit). As a blogger, I’m more comfortable with my writing voice, and my writing, um, uniform? It’s easy to write anytime when the inspiration strikes knowing that if I’m sporting a wet, post-workout bun and bleach stained sweatpants it won’t be seen by anyone. However, I’m always wanting to help all of you with your health journeys in the best way possible. A Q&A blog Read More

Monterey, California, where I currently live, has pretty invariable weather, ranging from overcast to blue skies and temperatures between 60-75 degrees. It’s chronic running weather! However, last Sunday started with 5am thunderstorms proceeded by heavy humidity and hot showers. The rain stopped but the heat proceeded through Monday. I loved it! I’ve missed hotter summer weather. But, by Tuesday it had passed, womp womp. I promised R cauliflower crust pizza Sunday night after winning his second amateur golf tournament in two weeks!

Very Berry Cherry Chia Pudding Recipe

If you’re an on-the-go person like me, you know having convenient and easy-to-prepare snacks are a must. As I mentioned in My Day of Eating post, I believe the key to long-term weight management is never letting myself get overly hungry. This means lots of healthy, smaller, yet filling meals throughout the day to keep my blood sugar and sweet cravings in check. Healthy fats, fiber, and protein are the super stars of my meals. I have a major sweet tooth so I love finding ways to incorporate healthy indulgences into my day to keep me feeling satisfied both physically and mentally. One of my favorite snacks is chia pudding. Chia pudding flavor options are pretty limitless. I’ve experimented with Read More
