Feels like winter has arrived! A few things to keep stocked in your house in case of a snow storm:
Eggs! Great and easy source of protein
A jar of marinara- it can turn almost anything into a meal
Canned tuna- simple, no cook protein for any meal
Frozen veggies are an easy side dish that never go bad
Having your house stocked with healthy, ready to eat meals is so helpful, especially as weather gets bad. Not to mention, we deliver them to your house

I just found this quote and I am so obsessed with it!!!
Such a great reminder...
It doesn't matter how good your doctor or how good the meds you are on...
Nothing will work to improve your health if you are not eating healthy!!!
Even with the incredible advances in modern medicine and science, our bodies still need good nutrition from food.

I'm not kidding, you guys!
There is so much joy to be had in cooking a meal at home.
It is a creative outlet, it brings the family together, it gives you a bragging point (why not?).
If you "don't know how" (I hear that all the time!), it is not rocket science, and the only reason you're not good at it is because you never practice! So, get to practicing....
The truth is, if you're a terrible cook it's because you never cook. Ohhhh, the irony.
Have you ever seen that show "Worst Cooks in America"? It is hilarious; a bunch of people who are totally clueless about cooking compete against each other in cooking competitions. They're all so bad that it makes for quite entertaining TV.
But by the end of the season, the final few contestants who have been practicing cooking for some time, are actually good cooks. These people, who were chosen for this show based on how bad they are, have been transformed into mini chefs due to trial and error and practice.
That, my friend, is all it...
If you're not cooking at home, how much time are you spending running around trying to figure out what your next meal will be?
In my first job as a nutrition educator, I realized that while most of us don't find the time to cook, we don't realize how much time we are wasting trying to figure out what we are going to eat next. Whether we are sitting at our desk toiling, spending our lunch hour in the car looking, strolling up and down the grocery aisles searching for something to have for dinner. It's a problem! We just tend to think this is much more efficient way of doing things than setting aside a few hours to meal prep for the week, or going online to order some healthy delivery meals!
Today, I challenge you to take a look at how much time is spent sourcing your next meal.
This doesn't have to take a long time, just take note of it as it happens. At the end of the day, or week, tally it up. Was it minutes, hours?
I would be willing to bet it was much more significant than...
What is your mission in the world? What is your big dream? What will your legacy be?
I ask these questions about the people who use our meal service all the time. By giving them more time in their day, more peace of mind, a healthy meal that leaves them energized, we are helping them carry out that mission in the world!! What a joy and an honor .
Think about how your day could change if you had those 30 mins of cleaning your kitchen back....would you take those to work on that special project. spend more time with your kids, or snuggle with your husband on the couch?
What if instead of a heavy fast food meal for lunch, you had something light and energizing? How would it feel to spend the rest of your work day enjoying your work instead of fighting off sleep?
We don't always think about the impact that one meal can have on our lives, but it really can be profound!
If you think your day could significantly improve with a healthy, easy meal, check out our packages here!
This Witchy Pumpkin Bread recipe is so, so good!
Best of everything:
Here is the recipe:
Witchy Pumpkin Bread (gluten free)
When I first go my degree in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology, I decided I wanted to change the world. I didn't really know how that would unfold at the time, but after working as an educator and SEEING day in and day out how difficult it is for us to get a healthy meal on the table, I knew I wanted to help people with just that. I began teaching and educating people how to cook simply at home, and eventually, I started doing it for them....
The work that I do and the way I get to help people is such an honor. I am so grateful for my clients, my incredible team, and all the people I have met along the way.
I recently made it my goal to bring healthy home cooking back into the American home. Whether that is through my healthy meal delivery service, the No-Diet Diet Club, a new course I am gearing up to launch ( #2020 !), or with my new show Wellness Confidential . I am so excited to bring this mission into the world and see what happens!
This gluten free kale pasta I made the other day for Instastories was such a hit I wanted to share the recipe. Also, look how good kale can taste!
Sautéed kale pasta- gluten free
• 4 cups fresh kale, stems removed and torn
• 2 cloves fresh garlic, chopped
• ¼ cup high quality olive oil
• 3T salt plus more to taste
• 1lb gluten free pasta
• 1 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
1. Set a pot of water on the stove to boil. When boiling, add 3 T salt and pasta. Cook according to instructions.
2. In the meantime, heat a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add oil and add garlic. Stir frequently until garlic is fragrant (do not burn!), about 2 minutes. Add kale and toss. Season with pinch of salt and pepper.
3. When kale has wilted down, 3-6 minutes, remove from heat.
4. Strain cooked pasta and add to large bowl. Toss in kale and the cheese. Toss well. Taste and season with additional salt if needed.
A friend of mine said this to me the other day.....
But no, your green smoothie does not have to be gross!!
I get so many questions about smoothies! I know it can be really confusing, so this week on Facebook I broke it all down for you...
Here are some important things to note when crafting your healthy smoothie at home:
Don't add more fruit than you would eat in one sitting (there's not way you would more than a cup of anything, or two pieces at once, so don't blend that much up, either)
Greens are necessary....zucchini, spinach, spirulina. They don't have to be overpowering, but you gotta use 'em.
You don't need any fancy milks or liquids to add, water does just fine.
Healthy fat in the form of flax seed or avocado gives it a nutrient boost.
