What “Power of She” Means to Me

I have been wanting to publish this post for a long time now, but it’s a topic that can be a little difficult to put into words. Or at least in a way that others will be able to understand and relate to. I’ve learned over time that no matter what we do in this

How I Got a Brighter Smile with Smile Brilliant

When it comes to dental health, I have been pretty lucky. I am one of the few people I know who never had to have braces, and I have only had one filling in my life. I’m good about brushing my teeth several times a day, and I’ve gotten a little better about flossing more frequently

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

Spicy Salmon & Broccoli Quinoa Bowl

Okay, so this recipe has been hanging out in my drafts for months now; don’t ask me why I haven’t shared it yet. I’ve totally been holding out on you guys, because I’ve made it approximately six times and every time I post it on my IG stories I get messages like: “OMG NEED THAT

Cheesy Broccoli & Shrimp Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

I love fall because I like wearing boots and sweaters and eating all the pumpkin and squash things, but I hate the cold, and the fact that I inevitably get sick every year when the weather changes. I’ve been fighting an awful cold/cough for about a week now, and it doesn’t seem to have any

Halloween is the start of a slippery slope for a lot of people. It’s the first holiday of the season, and it’s typically when you start seeing more and more candy and treats around at work/school/literally everywhere you turn. It can be pretty hard to say “no” to all the delicious, pumpkin-y, sugary goodness, but

Healthy Pumpkin Banana Bread

Hi everyone! It’s been a while, I know. I’ve been just a little busy lately. ; ) I thought that life would slow down when we got home from our honeymoon, but that still hasn’t really happened. But hey, I’m not complaining. It has been a blast (and a whirlwind) and I don’t really see

Banana Almond Butter Chia Proats

These oats are loaded with goods, so please forgive me for the lengthy name. I just couldn’t bring myself to leave out any of the ingredients because they are all equally important and equally delicious. Also, yes, I am aware that we are halfway through May, which means it is basically summer (and almost my birthday!!!), and I am posting

WFTW Veggie Flatbreads

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I love a good flatbread, and I whip one up almost every week for “Meatless Monday”. It’s such an easy and delicious meal to make vegetarian! Some of you may think it’s preposterous to eat pizza without meat on it, but don’t knock it ’til you try

Mexi-Veggie Stuffed Sweet Potato

I feel like the whole “meal prep” thing has really been catching on lately. Not just with all the foodies I follow, but with some of my friends and family members too, and I love seeing it! Mostly because as a dietitian, I preach it all the time. Whenever someone comes to me about their struggles with
