A breakfast packed with protein and energy

Category: Recipes    

For a long time I was, like many, scared about eating anything like oatmeal because it was “too many carbs” – fast forward to now when so many of those myths for me have been debunked. I now make sure that having carbs, and I mean GOOD carbs, are a part of my daily routine. I never believe that low carb diets will ever work for me, I just am not a happy person to be around if I am eating minimal amounts of carbs. Oatmeal though is a great source of carbohydrates and ene ...

A healthy way to grill asparagus

Nothing beats fresh asparagus as a side dish or a healthy meal prep addition. One spear of asparagus is only around 3 calories but is packed with nutrition.

Asparagus is also a great antioxidant and has been shown to help detoxify the body. It contains high levels of the amino acid asparagine, whic ...

Healthy Meal Prep Ideas to Pack for the Day

Category: Fitness     Recipes    

As many of you know from reading my blog I am a HUGE advocate of meal prepping.

With a hectic work schedule that leaves me little to no time to go out for lunch or snacks, I make sure to pack all of my meals with me in the morning. This has been a practice of mine for over five years now and has been a big part of my succes ...

Why I will never give up red wine and switched to organic

Category: Primary Menu    

Sometimes the only thing that gets me through a busy, stressful, long day is knowing that there is a glass of delicious red wine waiting at home with my name on it.

I switched to red wine years ago when I realized how different white wine was versus red wine. For many the preference is based on taste and I myself prefer red due to its fully bodied flavor. I also like that red win ...

Slow cookers are great if you have the time to let your food really m ...

Playing around with protein and protein infused foods has made my diet so much tastier.
