Losing My Mom Made Me a Better Mom

by

Every girl who becomes a mother instantly appreciates her mother more, but I can’t tell mine that. I can’t ever send a…

“thanks for putting up with me” text or a “how did you do this?!?” call.

On particularly hard days at home with three babies I sometimes think of her and try to be as patient as she was and to see the light through the dark like she did so well. I thank her in my mind and hope she can hear me from heaven.

The 7-Day Paleo Cleanse

by

Just this morning I got THREE success stories in my inbox from girls who’ve done my Cleanse 1) “I have never in my life not been hungry with all this boundless energy.” 2) “I lost 7 lbs, my skin looks better, and I’m feeling fresh AF.” 3) “Down 5 lbs and feeling SO much better.” When I feel like I’m posting to no one or that my work isn’t really helping as many people as I wish it would, these stories keep me going! I know how it feels to have food rule my life and it SUCKS! All I want is to help other women find the same food freedom and energy I’ve found Thank you for sharing your successes, ladies you’ve made me so proud

Here’s a little more info about it…

How to Get Your Kids to Eat Better

by

Oh, the struggle of parenting! Trying to raise a healthy kid in today’s processed world is NOT easy. 

There are food commercials glamorizing sugar-coated cereal, packaging made just for kids in pretty colors and designs, everyone and their mothers trying to pass off candy and “treats” to kids that don’t belong to them, fast food commercials showing off “must-have” toys…there are so many things working against a mom just trying to raise her kid to eat real FOOD. 

How to Order When You’re Paleo

by

Yesterday I had brunch downtown at San Marzano (delish!!). The place is known for pasta, so you'd think it would be completely black-listed for a Paleo chick, but there's almost always something on the menu wherever you go that's orderable as-is -- or something you can ask the server to tweak for you. Here's how I do ...

Pumpkin Bread I Don’t Hate Myself for Gorging On

by

Whenever I bake a new treat I have the hardest time not devouring the entire thing myself (that’s not an exaggeration). If I love it, I’ll just keep eating it until it’s gone. As you can imagine, that’s not going to help me lose this baby weight any time soon. My advice:

“If you’re going to pig out, make it on something you won’t regret tomorrow.”

Since going Paleo back in 2012 I’ve learned I can borderline gorge myself on cookies, cakes and pies and not gain weight or fall into a carb craving cycle like I did in my “regular” brownie days.

What I’m Working on This Week

by

On Sundays I map out the week ahead. It almost never works out as planned, but it helps me to at least start with a list and some goals so on Friday I've hit a few of them. After Poppy was born I was still trying to accomplish two or three projects every day which, after months ...
