If you have tried to clean up your diet before and failed, it’s because you weren’t specific enough!
I see so many people go down this path- they decide they want to eat better, maybe choose a recipe or two, hit the grocery store and by day three they are back to pizza for dinner and feeling super guilty about it.
There is no shame there, my friend!
Here’s how you can prevent that next time: make a list of the foods that will make up 90% of your diet, and then plan ahead for when you’ll be having the indulgent 10%.
What foods make you feel best? Write them all down. Now find recipes that include those foods and do your meal prepping.
This simple process cuts down on temptation SO MUCH!
It makes a diet change really easy. Don’t leave it to chance or for you to make a healthy decision in t moment- that never works! This process does work.

Change can be scary, it can be hard.
Losing the weight or starting a new diet can feel like you are losing yourself and your identity.
And that is actually what is happening; you are getting rid of your old identity and building a new one!
You are brave for making a change, it is not easy!!
The faster you can believe in yourself to be that new person, the less painful that change will be.
Let’s get clear together on whom the new you is…..
What do you think and feel as a thinner, healthier you?
What tools do you need to become the new you?
Write all of that down and move forward from there and you will see how FAST and SIMPLE change is!
Get creative in the kitchen to beat stress! This has been helping me so much.

I recently used the pulp of my turmeric-ginger-Apple juice to marinate shrimp and it was outstanding, and so good for the bod

If you're weighing in today and wondering why the scale seems off, here are a few reasons why:
When we consume a lot of carbs, sugar, salt or alcohol our bodies can hold onto water weight for DAYS! Even though you may feel like it's been a while since New Year's Eve, your body may not have released its water weight yet.
You may feel like you've been on track for a while, but remember that you just got through two months of holiday celebrations, and all those extra treats can really add up. Take it slow, you're on the right path!
Weight can fluctuate from day to day depending on your hydration status, internal swelling (hello, leg day!) etc., don't let the numbers throw you. Stay on track!
Celery is an AMAZING food with so many health benefits. Here are some ways I look to incorporate celery into my diet:
Celery juice mixed with aloe Vera juice. I had some seriously dry skin at the start of this season. I used this combo to help me rehydrate and acclimate to the weather change!
Make your own homemade celery juice! This is one of my favorite ways to get my daily nutrients. All you need is organic celery and a juicer! I find it way more cost-efficient than hitting the juice shop. Sometimes I like to add extras like lemon and ginger. Ginger is especially great for cold and flu season
Healthy fats are super dense in nutrients, but they also have the highest calorie count of any other foods!
Is that bad? No, not at all! Fats are very satiating, and can help our body burn fat. Not to mention, all the great nutrients they contain.
Healthy fats include:
Nuts and seeds
I love eating them with every meal!
Healthy fats nourish your
Add them to each meal to feel full and satisfied for a long time!

Healthy food shouldn't feel like a punishment.
Yet, so often it tastes like one!
Why does healthy equal boring?
Plain chicken with steamed broccoli...
Raw cauliflower dipped in air...
Plain brown rice, hold the salt...
It doesn't have to be that way!
All of these enhance flavor while also enhancing health! It doesn't have to be complicated or time consuming, just delicious.

There are a lot of unspoken things when it comes to anti-aging.
I mean seriously, what the **** is Cindy Crawford doing?
Well, actually, probably some of what we are going to talk about here today!
I learned from a college chemistry teacher that, technically, if we could eliminate all free radicals for all of time, we would never age or die.
Dang, that blew my mind.
I was like "blueberries, NOW!"
Free radicals are what cause aging. We can eradicate them by ingesting anti-oxidants which are found in plant foods.
Although it is probably not possible to ingest THAT many anti-oxidants, it doesn't hurt to try!
Here are some of the best free radical busting foods available
