Healthy Living is all about Balance (and healthy chocolate)

Living a healthy lifestyle is all about balance & long-term sustainable change. I don’t like diets because they’re extreme and yield short-term results. What option sounds more appealing? 1. 2 weeks of “no-dessert allowed” followed by 2 weeks of going crazy with dessert because you’ve deprived yourself for 2 weeks, followed by guilt and another […]

Are you Motivated to Get Healthy?

I had an amazing session with one of my clients last night. She’s been working with me for 6 weeks now, and she’s starting to see results. She’s an A+ student; making my healthy recipes, buying & eating the foods I tell her to, and avoiding unhealthy foods. She’s putting in the effort, and is […]

Eating Healthy on the Go

This weekend is really special because my sister-in-law is getting married on Saturday! The rehearsal is on Thursday afternoon so my husband and I are leaving early Thursday morning. John’s family lives in Ottawa so we’ve made this trip quite often, and I’ve come to realize there aren’t many healthy food choices along the way. […]

Healthy Carb Choices

Carbohydrates have been given a bad reputation over the years. When someone’s trying to lose weight a popular tactic is to cut carbs out of their diet. First of all, I don’t believe in diets. When you deprive yourself of something it only makes you want it more and you’re left feeling miserable, and likely […]
