Struggling Stay-At-Home Mom?

I broke down in tears in my manager’s office when I told him I was leaving the business to stay at home with my 6-month old at the time.  It wasn’t because I’d miss real estate.  But because deep down I knew I was giving up my independence. Something that I had always prided myself on.  And yet, I wanted to be the primary caretaker of my kids in their early years.  So therein lay my internal battle.  I wanted to be the one to take care of them and yet, and yet… About a year in to being at home, I wanted more. I wanted something that made me Continue reading Struggling Stay-At-Home Mom?

Weeknight Thai Coconut Shrimp With Cauliflower Rice

As I write this, I’m eating the leftovers. And it’s just as good the second time! This satisfying dish comes together very quickly so it’s a great weeknight option. If you’ve never tried cauliflower rice before, you have to try it! It actually takes less time than making a bag of minute rice…not kidding. And it has a surprisingly similar texture to rice. Everyone in my crew ate this meal except for my son who doesn’t (yet) like shrimp in any form. But my daughter, no doubt my biggest dinner critic, said it was “really good”. Um…you can be sure I gave Continue reading Weeknight Thai Coconut Shrimp With Cauliflower Rice

Low-Glycemic Pesto Chicken Pizza

I’ve been searching high and low for the ultimate guilt-free pizza and no kidding, I’ve found it. It’s a low-glycemic pizza, my friends!! Low-glycemic, meaning one that won’t spike your blood sugar. Because when we spike our blood sugar (over and over during the day for years on end), we become insulin resistant which is the cause of our obesity epidemic. So we want to keep it low-glycemic, people. And to do that, it’s all about the crust. I’ve tried the cauliflower crust (meh) and some of the lower carb tortillas (that you can’t get crispy unless you light them on fire). So I’m Continue reading Low-Glycemic Pesto Chicken Pizza

Are You Feeling THIS Every Day?

“It’s hard to explain but I feel more clarity. Like I want to take on projects that I have been ignoring for ages. Is that possible? And why is that?” I get asked about CLARITY quite a bit. That is the word they use to explain how they feel. Even though they don’t fully believe it. And I explain to them that CLARITY is what happens when your digestion is humming. It is what happens when your body is being supported by optimal fuel. It is what happens when your body is being supplied with clean food and excellent supplementation. When you Continue reading Are You Feeling THIS Every Day?

Spinach Artichoke Chicken

Here is a great option for those really cold nights when you’re looking for something comforting and yet you don’t want to blow up your clean eating routine. You will find that I’ll be adding more recipes that include meat and dairy as long as they are sugar-free and keep to whole foods for the most part. This is one of those recipes and it is so simple, delicious AND healthy…as long you steer clear of adding bread or other refined carbohydrates to your meal. It is a great low-glycemic meal and won’t spike your blood sugar. Oh, and BONUS…there is a Continue reading Spinach Artichoke Chicken
