Easiest salad dressing recipe ever

This simple, one-bowl salad is my go-to for a fast, healthy, scratch-made salad dressing. Salad dressings are one of the very best things to make from scratch, eliminating unnecessary stabilizers and emulsifiers found in store-bought bottles. […]

A Better Way to Better Nutrition

In the early days of dating my husband, we engaged in all sorts of question-asking to get to know one another better. As we walked along our university’s campus holding hands and gazing into each other’s eyes, I will never know what prompted my twenty-year-old brain to ask him what fruits and vegetables he liked to eat. No matter how strange the question, I will forever remember his reply. […]

Fiber-rich black bean brownies

Fiber is an old stand by in the nutrition world. But recent research underscores the importance of fiber in hormone regulation and increasing the excretion of endo and exotoxins by supporting natural detoxification. This decadent black bean brownie recipe increases soluble fiber content and supports a healthy GI tract. Fiber doubles down by helping to balance blood sugar and boost metabolism. […]

Q&A: Processed foods

People want convenient, tasty, simple food. I know I do. I also want my best options to be easy and obvious. Here’s the simple argument: you’re better off eating a diet high in “whole” and “less” processed foods. That’s unlikely to come as a surprise. You can read thousands of articles about the “dangers” of highly processed foods. Many of those foods even have labels explaining how much “safer” they are than similar options. […]

Hydration in practice

The importance of hydration is something I have always struggled with as a trainer, and it’s something that certainly not everyone agrees on 100%. I have, admittedly, been all over the board from drinking tons of water to not really worrying about it at all. It is something, however, that has seemed to make a dramatic impact on physical health for me over the past 6 months, so as we lean into the conversation of hydration this week I invite you to be open minded, to try some new strategies and to find out where your optimal level lies. […]

How to Address and Avoid Dehydration

As the temperature rises and the sun comes out, not only does an ice cold beverage refresh and quench thirst, it’s absolutely necessary to keep your body functioning at it’s best. It’s no secret or surprise that we need to drink plenty of water and maintain hydration, especially in hot weather and during intense exercise. But what if we miss the mark? What signs should we look for to stave off dehydration? What should we do if we cross the dehydration threshold? […]

Increase kiddo veggie intake

Getting kids to eat a variety of veggies can be a battle. Not only does research suggest that kids should be getting at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies a day, but that it’s important to have diversity to ensure that important micronutrients are being consumed. While most kids (like my own) will munch on carrots and bell peppers, they are a lot less likely to eat kale and squash. So, I created a daily kid-friendly smoothie to boost their intake without a fight. […]

Nutrition guidelines to live by

As we dig into the topic of good nutrition this week, it’s important to remember that we are looking at how what you eat relates to all the elements of your health, not just performance in the gym or how your jeans fit. Good nutrition can positively affect your mood and energy, lower risk of disease, improve sleep quantity and quality, and make you feel and look your best. But it’s different for everyone and as we go down the winding road of good nutrition it’s important to remember some things. […]

What it takes to stay hydrated

The phrase “water is life” makes a great bumper sticker. That’s because it’s impossible to overstate the importance of water. There is no single more impactful habit you can build than keeping your body hydrated. […]
