coco’nuts’ about these products

Who else likes to check these boxes? ✅saving money ✅buying food that’s good for you ✅giving a hand up to those who need it by buying fair trade ✅sharing the secret with others Today, I was able to do all four when I bought two of my favorite pantry essentials from Vitacost: Coconut Secret’s Coconut Aminos and Dr. Bronner’s Magic All-One Fair Trade & Organic Coconut Oil. Yes, these are more expensive than similar products, but there are times when I feel it’s important to “vote with my fork” and pay the extra money for a good cause. Here’s the …

food journaling

This week marks the first full week of the Sugar Pretox Challenge. As part of the challenge, I’m asking participants to keep a food journal and record everything they eat and drink (with the exception of pure water) for five days. Why start here? Because I believe we all underestimate the amount of fat, calories, processed foods, and sugar we actually are putting into our bodies. The only way to be sure if our perceptions match with our food reality is if we take the time to record what we eat – every meal, every snack, every little tiny nibble. …

breaking up with sugar

I’m sharing an article today that I wrote for our local newspaper, for the full article, please click here to see a PDF of the full newspaper article. It’s on page 11, under the blue heading “Lakewood Cares.” If I could pinpoint the moment when I felt a downward shift in my health, it would be late winter 2009 when a bout with bronchitis required antibiotics to take care of the infection.

sugar detox challenge

“I need to eat less sugar.” “I’m addicted to sugar.” “I have a hard time stopping myself from eating too many chocolates…cookies…desserts?” “I wish I had more energy.” “I need to lose weight.” Sound familiar? So often, I encounter people who share their struggle with eating too many sugar-laden foods or are frustrated by their lack of energy or their weight. Yet, they struggle with taking the next step to kick the sugar addiction. Our culture doesn’t help. Cupcake wars, cake bosses, and Pinteresting parties with cakes and candies taking front and center encourage us to believe no special occasion …

Clean Eating Works!

I’m so excited to share a few results from the 5-day Clean Eating Challenge that took place last week. I’ll admit I was skeptical at first if anyone would really notice a difference in just five days, but they did! Here’s what a few of the Challenger’s said: We both definitely feel better overall. We don’t feel so bloated and we felt more energized so that two of the days we didn’t even have coffee. This is just what I needed. I think my favorite part was the snacks – being intentional and packed with raw foods. Plus, I have …

a few favorite products for cleaner eating

As I prepare to help lead the FREE 5-Day Clean Eating Challenge that starts on Monday, I thought it would be helpful to share a few of my favorite products with you with some thoughts on why I like them.* Market Pantry All Natural (just peanuts and salt, folks) Peanut Butter @ Target: This is a recent discovery of mine. Not only does it closely resemble Smucker’s All Natural PB (which is favorite of mine), but it’s cheaper. Always an extra bonus when you save an additional 5% with your Target card and when they add it to Cartwheel. I’d …
