I realize that trying to eat enough protein is hard enough, let alone it being so darn expensive. I always keep my eye out for sales on chicken, turkey, and beef. But sometimes it’s nice to make a meatless meal that’s still high in protein. This recipe is also perfect for any vegetarians out there who struggle to eat enough protein. My secret ingredient is chickpea pasta! It’s only ingredient is chickpeas, but it surprisingly tastes just like regular pasta! Even the pickiest of eaters will agree. You could probably even get away with not telling your kids (or husband) and they won’t even knowRead More →

If you’ve done some research on tracking your macros (or “iifym”) then you’ve most likely come across the terms cutting, bulking, and reverse dieting.

These days I feel like every celebrity is endorsing some kind of “magical supplement”. Whether it is a detox tea, fat burning pill, appetite suppressant, etc, there seems to be a supplement to cure almost any problem. Want to lose weight? Take a supplement. Want to build muscle? Take a supplement. As a certified Health Coach, I’m not big on supplements. I would much rather see everybody get everything their body needs through whole foods and a healthy diet. However, sometimes supplements can be extremely helpful. So in order to save you time and money, I thought I would compile a list of the supplementsRead More →

Chicken Enchiladas

For some reason enchiladas is a recipe that I avoided making because in my mind they seemed really complicated. I know that sounds stupid, but I have honestly never made them before until this recipe. I was looking for an inexpensive way to meal prep.

Then after some thought, I decided to give enchiladas a try! So here is my easy meal prep chicken enchiladas recipe! This is a wonderful budget friendly meal that is easy to makeRead More →

I’ve talked to a lot of people who think that eating healthy or following a “diet” or tracking macros is only possible when you have a lot of money. They think that there’s not way to eat all of these fancy healthy foods while on a budget But this is where you’re wrong! Being on a budget doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your health goals. It just means you need to be a little smarter about your purchases and plan accordingly! So today I want to show you how to eat healthy & track your macros on a budget! 1.

If you’re just starting out in your weight loss journey, it can be extremely overwhelming to think about all of the changes you “should” make. Honestly the reason most people are unsuccessful is because they think they need to overhaul their entire diet at once. They think they need to “eat clean” for all 3 meals, cut out all snacks, and exercise 5-7x a week all at once. Of course that’s overwhelming!! You’d maybe stick with it for a few weeks, but then it would get too challenging and you’d give up completely. So let me tell you a little secret…you don’t need to make all ofRead More →

health new years resolutions

It is almost 2019, and you’ve probably started to think about your New Year’s Resolutions. Am I right? Most people set themselves up for failure by committing to huge New Year’s resolutions that are almost impossible to achieve in a year. For example, “I’m going to workout everyday”, or “I’m going to completely eliminate sugar, dairy, and gluten”, or “I’m going eat zero carbs”. While these might sound like great health-conscious goals, you need to stop and think about how huge of a life change this would be. So instead, this year I want you to focus on setting achievable resolutions. Here’s an example of fourRead More →
