What if cooking at home was as simple and cost effective as something traditionally considered convenient?
What if cooking at home didn’t mean doubting yourself through the whole process, or feeling overwhelmed about getting it all done?
What if all the frustration and back and forth between cooking this week, feeling crappy for your food decisions the next just didn't have to be there anymore?
What if the answer was super-duper simple?
Would you take the opportunity to get out of the cycle that is not benefiting you?

Whose meal prepping today?
I made these caramelized pearl onions with peas (both frozen!!!) with thyme and sage and I got the compliment, "These are the best peas I've ever had in my life!"
High marks, you guys! And they were super easy
1/2 of a bag frozen pear onions
1 bag frozen peas
1 T olive oil
Pinch thyme and sage (dry)
Salt and pepper
Heat oil in a skillet and add onions.
Season with herbs, salt and pepper.
Cook the onions until browned and fragrant.
Add peas, season again.
Sauté until just beginning to brown.
I hear it all the time, "now that the kids are gone, I just don't want to cook anymore. It's so much harder to cook for one or two people anyway."
Hey, I hear you. I've lived alone and I felt this way for a long time.
Surely it's harder to cook for less than it is for more....but did you just hear that?
Because it sounds kind of backward....and actually it is backward. It' EASIER to cook for fewer people!
Less food to buy, fewer meals to make, less time it takes to make them, less clean up....You just don't think it's worth it!
And let me tell you, it is more important than ever! Yes, your health is more important now than ever before.
For your energy, for your peace of mind, for you grown kids and grandkids or unborn kids, for your career and financial health; your health is more important than ever.
Because of that, I want to give you something: a month of meals, recipes, and grocery lists totally done for you. No planning, email searches,...
I've been loving in mixing in the flavors of SPRING !!
Yes, it is finally here
This was a mango salsa I made to go on top of fish:
2 diced mangos
1 diced bell pepper
1/4 diced red onion
juice of 1 lime
Pinch of red pepper flakes, salt and pepper
Put it on fish, chicken or a chip! It is fantastic
I love this SUPER easy, tasty and healthy side dish! It pairs well with pretty much any meal so it's a great go to!
One of the easiest side dishes ever:
One bag frozen green beans
Fresh baby heirloom tomatoes
Drizzle of olive oil
Salt, pepper and fresh crushed garlic
Roast at 400 for about 10mins, tossing in between.
One of the best things about quarantine (in my humble opinion) is the time for self reflection and self-improvement!
I've been taking more time to read, get creative and figure out how to slow down. The book Self-Compassion by Kristin Neff, PhD, has been fantastic!!
Something I have working on during the forced slow down is being nice to myself . It's helping me enjoy my days more, not beat myself up for dietary "slip ups" (while still losing weight), and helping my business grow!
What has the best thing about quarantine been for you?

Berries are finally coming back in season as the weather warms (even though it doesn’t feel like it’s quite hit us yet). Either way, they are tasting amazing and I’ve been adding them by the nutrient dense handful to my smoothies!
Even though I make my smoothies fresh each day, they are definitely a part of my weekly meal planning. The beauty of having a great planning process is nothing is ever guess work or rushed.
This is exactly what I teach in The Meal Prep Course. You never feel confused, rushed, or like you have no plan for the groceries in your fridge. You ALWAYS know; no worry, no stress. Check out the course here!
Lots of food faces going on in my new weekly segment “What’s in your pantry?” With Rene Knott of KSDK news!
Every Monday at 5am and 6am (record it, only Rene is up that early during quarantine ) we share awesome recipes using items you already have in your pantry (hello, fewer trips to the store!)!
It’s fun and funny mostly because Rene is hilarious and I make faces like this! See you on channel 5 on Monday!
When I decided I wanted to lose 10lbs in January, I had no idea I was going to learn so much about cravings and where they come from.
Turns out, cravings were what was preventing me from living at my ideal weight! Cravings and emotional eating are what prevent most of us from reaching our weight goals.
It's now my mission to help others learn how to manage cravings, so they can get to their goal weight.
I'm now working on offering a class that is going to be incredibly helpful and give you all the tools I didn't have when I got started with my weight goal. I can't wait to see you there!
