Don’t Be A Healthy Holiday Grinch!

I love getting creative in the kitchen. And I love a good home-cooking recipe turned healthy through a little tweak here and there. But you know what I don’t like? When people try to diet-ize classics. Hey, if it’s a completely new creation like a pumpkin spice…whatever (who doesn’t like all things pumpkin spice!?) FILL YOUR BOOTS. But for goodness sakes, some things (like Great Grandma’s Pumpkin Pie) are sacred! Can I get an AMEN?! For my 10 tips on how to be healthy without becoming the family grinch…read on!

Body love & losing weight (isn’t that a contradiction?)

Body love & losing weight (isn’t that a contradiction?)

The other day I was chatting with a group of women around the topics of body love, self-compassion & health. In hushed tones one of them shyly asked me, “can I love my body…and still want to lose weight?” She asked me as though it was some dirty little secret, that somehow she couldn’t desire to change her body – and still love her body.

You are capable of so much more than you know. And it all starts with a belief in your ability to do whatever it is you decide YOU want to do. #besuperyou
