“Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart”

There are so many blessings in my life to be grateful for, and I decided to write down to share a few of mine with all of you. Maybe take a minute for yourself to make your own list. Sitting down to do this was such a refreshing game changer in the midst of a crazy day. I was also surprised by a few of the things that popped into my mind as I was writing… you’ll see. ;) It’s become a practice of mine to count my blessings, thanks to my mom, especially when certain moments in life are feeling so out of my hands, it’s a good time to remember what is in place to be thankful for. Here I go…

Two Place I call “Home”: Oregon will forever be home in my heart, and a place I get to go to be with my family and retreat. …

I Love You, Pumpkin. Grain Free Pumpkin Pancakes

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

Oh, Pumpkin. You bring the fall spirit to life. Your scents, your taste, the warm and fuzzy feelings that brings this season to life. 

Ohhhh… Hey! Just a little love going on between me and my beloved Pumpkin. And really, pumpkin, the orange ooey gooey stuff, not a dreamy tall and handsome fella. ;) (He’s on my Christmas wish list!)

I could go on about Pumpkin, especially because this magical orange guy is just as wonderful as the Pumpkin in the story of Cinderella! Pumpkin is so nutritiously beneficial, full of antioxidants and vitamins, but enough about that!

Onto the Pancakes!

“Surround yourself with people who make you hungry for life, touch your heart, and nourish your soul.”

Life. It’s such a wild ride, isn’t it? If I could share every detail with you, and I’m sure if you could share every detail of your life with me, we would stand staring at each other with our hands over our mouths surprised by the challenges and heartaches we face as we go about our daily lives. But I guarantee you, if we stood with each other sharing all of our blessings, we would be smiling and so happy for one another.

My friends have become a lifeline for me, a huge blessing! They have given me a safe space to share my highs and my lows. Truly, they inspire me, teach me, encourage me, and their presence in my life nourishes my soul!

The last several months have been busy… I like being busy, so I feel like I say …

Detoxing My Way Back to My True Self

“Take care of your body, it’s the only place you have to live”

I’m going to let you in on a little secret… since I’ve been back from my summer in “Paradise” I have been so out of my routine and honestly not been feeling great about myself. My workouts aren’t the same, my eating habits are a little under par, and my skin… well, I’ve actually never seen my skin like this, it’s struggling, BAD. I blame the skin factor on everything else in my daily life that is out of whack, so I’m taking control over all aspects of my life and doing what I know to do to get myself back to feeling like my true self again. The good thing is, I do know how to do this for myself, after all, I coach people daily on living their best lives. Just goes to show, I’m human. Even though my career is nutrition and health coaching …

A Little Note that goes a Long Way…

Favorites / Healthy Living / Miscellaneous

When is the last time you received a little “hello” from a friend in the mail? Or how about an “I Love You” note from a loved one left on the counter as you’re leaving the house in the morning? Or maybe an encouraging thought on your desk from a co-worker? Hardly ever, right?

Megan green and purple

These things don’t happen very often anymore. With the convenience of text messages, snapchats, e-mails, and social media, those special handwritten notes aren’t showing up like they once did. I’m personally one that is guilty of the conveniences in communication these days, but recently I received a sweet note via “snail mail” (you know, the mail you put a stamp on the envelope for). It was a “just because” note from a thoughtful friend that just wanted to let me know she was thinking of me. This made my day receiving a surprise in the mail that felt like someone had gone the extra mile for …

No More Diet, Hello Lifestyle

Goodbye Diet, Hello Lifestyle…

The New Year can get so crowded with goals, ideas, new adventures, and it can also be crowded with realities, disappointments, and high expectations. The latter seem to often get in the way, especially those disappointments when you can’t seem to reach all of those high expectations. It seems as though many do so well in their first few days or even weeks of their New Years goals, but many find themselves hitting a bump in the road, get a little off track, and then feel discouraged giving up completely. I so get it. How many of you are feeling this right now? Well, let’s take a step back, brush ourselves off, and try again. ;)

This time let’s take away the ridiculous expectations and that demanding, rigid, boring, extreme, strict DIET. This shall be called the “D” word from now on as it’s a word that often gets too much power, owning us, leaving us trying …
