Nashville, TN & Beyond.
I have a passion for wellness; from good food to natural skin care products, the sky is the limit! I travel all over the world with my hubby, blogging as I go and I would love for you to follow along!
Last week I was hit by what felt like the PLAGUE. Nausea, poor digestion, and pretty much ZERO energy. As a health coach I know the best way to heal from the flu or a virus is REST, WATER, GREENS, and SLEEP. Making something nutritious to eat while sick can feel like an impossible feat, […]
As you guys know (if you have read my previous posts), I am VERY lactose intolerant. Letting go of grilled cheeses, pizza, ice cream, and mac and cheese was so daunting and difficult in the beginning but after 7 years of being dairy free, I can tell you there are GREAT alternatives out there AND […]
Homemade Paleo Bread One of the biggest complaints I hear from those who are trying to take up a healthier lifestyle is “but what will I eat if I can’t eat bread?!” Bread is a staple in many people’s diets – we use it in the morning for toast, in the afternoon for sandwiches, and […]
Rice pudding is the new oatmeal – but seriously who knew brown rice could be so creamy and delicious? What I love about this dish is that it’s LOADED with complex carbs – meaning a breakfast of rice pudding is going to leave you feeling fuller for longer without the blood sugar high’s and lows. […]
Making My Own Teas (being my most granola-self yet!) If you have been following me over the past 6 months, you know I made the ultimate sacrifice by giving up coffee for a better mental well-being. So with my morning cup of coffee gone, I knew I needed a NEW morning beverage – and that’s where […]
Is there any better choice then soups and stews in the winter time? Seriously though, they are so easy to put together, they make for great leftovers, and they are warming to the soul! I decided to go with lentils for this stew since I had a leftover bag sitting in the pantry. After watching […]
Vegan Alfredo Being dairy intolerant can be hard at times – no pizza, no mac and cheese, no grilled cheese… you get the idea. So as a dairy intolerant person you’ve got to get creative. I had some gluten-free fettuccine pasta sitting in my freezer that needed to be made and that’s when I remembered […]
Unfortunately with how busy my schedule has been with getting home from tour and trying to catch up on life, I wasn’t able to re-create my OWN healthy Thanksgiving recipes for you guys this year but I was able to create a round-up of some gluten free, dairy free (mostly vegan) dishes from blogs I […]
Why Pumpkin? Pumpkins aren’t just great for decoration, they are also AMAZINGLY nutritious! Roast the flesh and puree it, you can freeze it and use it in soups, smoothies and baked goods this fall and winter! WHY PUMPKIN? 1. it’s high in antioxidants. Carotenoids are an antioxidant found in pumpkins (you can tell by the orangish […]
Pumpkin Butter If you read my last post on “Pumpkin Puree” than you know that pumpkin has a WHOLE lotta good stuff for you – from vitamins to antioxidants – I can’t get enough of this stuff. You might be wondering how you can incorporate more of this orange gold into your life and that’s […]
