passionate about helping you whip up a nourishing, well-balanced life
Learning to cook better, eat better and feel better takes time. Let’s take small bites and slowly digest our shift to better living. I’m a geeky, busy mom getting real about the triumphs and tribulations of cooking up a healthy meal and mindset. Come along on the bite-sized journey of health + happiness.
The good news is we don’t have to make picture perfect food or complicated recipes for mealtime sanity, wellness or weight loss. Let’s make it simple and fresh.
Better living goes hand in hand with improving our mindset. But, changing how we think takes time. Let’s ease into it and find our happy place, one bite and one breath at a time.
Veggies and searing were not always in my culinary vocabulary – with my primary veggie intake coming from nachos and frozen chicken wings former kitchen staples. So if I can develop an appetite for veggie-fied meals and kitchen prowess so can you.
Though after struggling with my weight for years, yo-yo-ing since college, I’ve realized eating better is not just knowing what to eat, or how to cook it.
Whipping up better living (and a happy weight) is about cultivating the habits and mindset to embrace nourishing ourselves regularly because we’re worth it…even if we don’t realize it yet, which is what I’m still learning.
So here I am practicing prioritizing feeling good. I’m hoping we can let go of filling ourselves up with less than we deserve. Let’s slow down and transform self-loathing into self-appreciation using our awareness to choose what fills us up with the best we deserve.
