Hi there! I am a soon-to-be dietitian & certified personal trainer with a love of cooking and the outdoors! I created this blog to share my nutrition and fitness expertise to promote healthy lifestyles focused on disease prevention.

  • I love #pesto so much that I've been putting it on everything: brown rice/sausage/veggie bowls, breakfast scrambles, and pizza!

Pesto is so easy to make and can be made so many different ways! Not to mention it's versatility and #positive nutrition profile, including unsaturated fats, #protein, #fiber, and many #vitamins and #minerals. The version I made here includes #walnuts + #sunflower seeds + #oorganics fresh herb #salad + #canola oil. A quick blend in my food processor was all it took to get a nice, smooth texture!

The basic #recipe includes:
🌰 Nuts/seeds
🌱 Greens
🥑 Oil
🧀 Cheese (optional)
🥄 Salt & pepper
  • Whipped up a batch of blueberry vinaigrette to pair with this strawberry, walnut, purple cabbage salad! Only thing missing is some goat cheese. Gettin in those #antioxidants #omega3s #vitamins #minerals 👌💪

  • My favorite #preworkout when I workout in the morning and don't have time for a full meal: #fruit + #water. Carbohydrates and fluid are all you need before exercise to give your body quick energy. Remember to fuel-up with some protein, carbs, and fluid #postworkout to replenish your glycogen stores, give your muscles the best opportunity to repair and grow, and rehydrate!

  • Hummus + Pepper Jack Macaroni & Cheese 😋 Whole-grain pasta + onions + peppers + garlic + olive oil + hummus + pepper jack cheese = lots of nutrition in the form of fiber, protein, unsaturated fats, vitamins, and minerals! 🍝🌶️🧀
This is why I love pasta - you can combine anything you want for a super-quick, nutrient-dense meal that minimizes food waste by using food you may have otherwise not known what to do with!
