My Journey to Becoming a Dietitian

Since National Nutrition Month is right around the corner (hint: March), it seemed like the perfect time to talk a little bit about dietitians, AKA the experts in nutrition! I wrote this guest article for Andy the RD‘s blog almost a year ago, and for some reason, I never shared it here on Wellness For The

Flourless, Eggless, Fudgy Black Bean Brownies

Happy Fat Tuesday & Day Before Valentine’s Day! I made these black bean brownies a few days ago and shared it on my Instagram stories, and got a ton of questions and interest in this recipe. I wanted to go ahead and give it another moment in the spotlight (even though it’s been on my

Whole Wheat, Refined Sugar-Free Banana Bread

Banana bread has always been my go-to if I’m in the mood to bake (which is basically all the time). Partly because I love it so much, and partly because we have overripe bananas 95% of the time. Sometimes we go a little crazy and buy two massive bundles of bananas at Sam’s Club and then realize that

How To: Make Early Morning Workouts Happen

You probably think I’m crazy for thinking I can convince you to set your alarm for 5 am to wake up and go to the gym. But just hear me out. I have started working out early in the morning at least 1 time a week, for one reason or the other. If I have

Blame Taylor Swift 

When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a famous singer when I grew up. My mom can attest to this. I drew pictures of myself on stage with a microphone, under the spotlight, being a superstar, alongside my best friend Courtney. Courtney and I would lock ourselves in a room and create

The Power of Protein

Protein, protein, protein. It seems like that’s all we hear about these days in the health & fitness world. Most people take protein supplements to help them get “jacked”, but do you know all the other important roles that protein plays in your body? Proteins are part of every cell and tissue in our bodies, including

Keep Calm And Have A Snack

That statement could not be more fitting for me. I eat very often, but usually in small-ish quantities. I’m not saying that’s the “right” or “wrong” way to do it; that’s simply what I prefer to do. I would have rather have several small meals and snacks throughout the day than three large meals and
