Green Blender Review (plus a discount!)

Along with the many other ways life is different when you move from NYC to Vermont, your blogging event opportunities get a little slimmer. When Green Blender, an NYC-based smoothie delivery business, contacted me about trying their service for review, I reluctantly wrote a “thanks, but no thanks” email, explaining my new location. I’ve been on […]

20 Delicious Healthy Smoothie Recipes

I was never much of a smoothie drinker until my now 4-year-old abruptly stopped eating most vegetables at age 2. Once it became apparent this wasn’t a momentary phase of picky eating, I dragged out my old blender and started doing fruit and honey-laced veggie concoctions. But my blender kind of sucked and it was […]

What I Learned About Nutrition on the Runner’s Reset

I went into the Runner’s Reset, hosted by Laura, expecting to pick up a few tips for fueling properly as a runner, as well as some new easy, healthy recipes. After 18 days of the 21-day program, it’s safe to say my expectations were met, but what I learned about food and nutrition for my […]

Kale Salad with Almonds, Feta and Cherries

Today’s recipe was inspired by a salad I had in one of my favorite cafes in Brooklyn. Their kale salad had almonds, cherries and an incredible dressing. Looking for a salad to make for Thanksgiving dinner last month, I decided to do my own spin on it and created this delicious kale salad with almonds, […]

Gift Guide for Healthy Foodies

After moving out of Brooklyn to a place where our kitchen is all new and shiny (we even have a dishwasher! New Yorkers share my awe) I was so excited to put this list together. I love cooking, but it’s that much more fun in a well-laid out kitchen with new appliances.  Today’s gift guide is for the […]

GoMacro MacroBars Review and Giveaway

Recently, a little box of delicious was delivered to me. I have to admit, I wasn’t expecting a lot from the taste of GoMacro MacroBars. When the company reached out to me to offer a box of their MacroBar Minis, as well as a box to give away to one of you lovelies, I checked […]

Easy Meals – Brown Beer Crockpot Beef Stew

I have a love/hate relationship with my crockpot. There, I’ve said it. I love it for things like soup, or chili, where I truly do just dump in the ingredients and let it work its magic. The reason you won’t hear me say, “I couldn’t live without my slow cooker!!” is because I think there […]

Easy Meals – Mango Coconut Cod Recipe

So recently, I accidentally ordered mangoes twice when I did my grocery shopping online. Usually when I buy mangoes, they’re not ripe and take forever to be ready to eat. (Just like avocados, right?) Well, of course this time, all the mangoes were perfect – juicy, ripe and ready to eat. That meant I needed […]

Diets Work – So Don’t Go On One

Any personal trainer can tell you, clients with a weight loss goal definitely outrank all other goals and reasons combined. If I have a client who wants to lose weight and it’s a reasonable goal, then of course I’m going to structure their program to achieve that outcome. However, I prefer to think of weight loss through exercise […]
