Healthy-ish Chocolate Nog Shake

Gluten-Free Me / Healthy Living / Miscellaneous / My Recipes

There’s something about Egg Nog and the holiday season, it’s just a must! I guess that’s if you’re an Egg Nog fan. 😉 Well, I don’t actually drink the “original” Nog, I’m more of a fan of the Almond Milk Nog or Coconut Milk Nog. Going non-dairy here is the way to go for me, and depending on the brand you’re buying you’ll find a lot less of the refined sugars used in the “original” nog. Nog is still a sugary treat, so I’m not saying it becomes healthy all of a sudden, please continue to be mindful of this treat and enjoy in moderation. 😉 So there’s my stance on “The Nog”, but now let’s talk about this Chocolate business.

There’s a reason females crave chocolate especially that one time each month. Our bodies are working extra hard and we’re needing those extra antioxidants, mood boosters, and the iron and magnesium that chocolate (the real stuff) provides. So ladies, …

What is Your Tummy Telling You?

Favorites / Gluten-Free Me / Healthy Living / Miscellaneous / Personal

TummyTellingYouWhat is your tummy telling you?? From the day that I was born I dealt with chronic stomach issues… we don’t really need to go into details. 😉  It took me 25 years, many doctor visits, lots of tests, and tons of pain to figure out the root of this cause. Turns out for me, that was gluten. But my health journey didn’t stop there, it was just the beginning. I had finally found my greatest enemy (gluten), removed it, but there was so much healing to be done! The gut damage I had was taking a toll on my energy, my immune system, my hormones, and I was still experiencing some stomach discomfort (it was still a huge difference compared to the pain I had experience nearly my whole life). All of this opened the door to my own journey to venturing into a career in nutrition, but it also led me to my nutritionist, Christa! With …

Get Glowing with Coconut Oil

IMG_3857    It’s beginning to be truly evident that Coconut Oil is a must have in your household.You can use it for nearly absolutely anything!! Recently a friend of mine had commented on a Facebook post I had done sharing the benefits and uses for coconut oil (and there are a lot), so she said to me, “Next I’m going to find out that you change your oil with coconut oil and even fuel your car with it!” Haha.  I wouldn’t go that far, but we do already know that Coconut can fuel us, and in a nutshell, it can kind of be like an oil change for our bodies!

In fact, I believe that since I’ve been using my skinny coconut oil I have seen a difference from the inside out, like a glow! My face is brighter, my skin is silkier, and my teeth are even whiter! Yep, you can even use coconut oil for you teeth. …

Life with Lemons: Rev up your Metabolism & Kickstart your Weight Loss

Favorites / Healthy Living / Miscellaneous

DIY_Lemons4

When life gives you lemons, you can definitely do a lot more than just make lemonade. I say, “Bring on the Lemons, All day and everyday!” (I’ll take on those lemons metaphorically too, why not.)

Here’s the deal, lemons really are beneficial to you in like a million ways, but let’s go ahead and talk about that weight thing. One of the first things I tell my clients to do when we begin working together is to start their morning with 16oz of warm or room temperature water with the juice of ½ a lemon (or a whole if you really love lemons). This tells your body, “I’m here, I’m ready to go!” and it will kick your metabolism into gear as it awakens all your organs and starts them working; not only for you, but with you. This is the first helpful step in weight loss. (Half of this equation is water, but that’s for another time…)

So why
