Summer Shape-up 2018!

The last freeze (might) be over and summer is just around the corner. If you're ready for a wellness challenge that is simple, supported and without any supplements, I've got one for you. If your goals include increased metabolism, fitting better into your clothes, having more energy and approaching food as it is meant to be-for energetic life, then join me in a 21 day wellness challenge. The challenge begins Monday, April 23 and ends Sunday, May 13-just in time for school to be out, pools to open and bright sunshiny days to be the new norm. The program is just $29* and includes:

  • 21 days of clean eating. Get excited! It's super simple and totally tasty. Plus, I'll be doing it right along with you. 
  • Sample meal plans as well as suggestions for when you eat out.
  • Grocery lists 
  • 21 days of quickie workout options (no more than 30 minutes a day)
  • 21 days of accountability and encouragement and access to a ACE Certified personal trainer and wellness coach.
  • 21 days of a small community of people doing the exact same thing you are, who have the same questions and struggles and we will work through it all together!
  • Most importantly, NO supplements-just real food for real people living real lives.
There's noting to lose, except maybe some inches and a few pounds. There's a lot to gain: body confidence, strength, good digestion, better sleep, energy and a different way to eating. 

If you're interested, simply e-mail me here ( and let me know to put you on the list or feel free to ask any questions! When you sign up, I will add you to our closed Facebook group where the food lists will be so you can be prepared for day one: Monday, April 23.

*I will invoice you via PayPal and add you to the group as soon as I get confirmation of payment :)

Super Salad

I have always felt that salads that other people make, whether it's restaurants or friends/family, always taste better. I hate the prep and I can never get the salad dressing right. Until now. You guys, this salad has EVERYTHING in it: tons of veggies, protein, fiber, good fats and overall deliciousness. My husband raved about it and so I've been making it a lot. And now, I have it prepped and ready to go at any moment. This salad is a meal all by itself and I've been eating it three or four days a's that good and totally versatile. I'm also in love with the dressing I use-it takes like 30 seconds to make.

Here's what I put in it:

  • Mixed greens and spinach (chopped)
  • Chopped, roasted sweet potatoes
  • Cauliflower rice
  • Zucchini
  • Chickpeas (roasted are amazing but rinsed from the can work just as well)
  • Walnuts
  • Carrots
  • Roasted turkey breast
  • Red onion
  • Avocado
  • Snap peas
  • Dried unsweetened cherries if I'm feeling crazy (I have found these at Trader Joe’s)

What I top it with (dressing recipe):
(don't use it all...I use a table spoon or two and save the rest in the fridge in a mason jar)

  • 1/4 cup avocado or olive oil
  • 1/8 cup balsamic vinegar (I like the white balsamic for this one but normal would be fine too)
  • Salt to taste (I give it a couple shakes)
  • Pepper (I like a bunch of grinds of fresh)
  • 1/4 tsp ground mustard
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • honey is optional if you want a bit o' sweetness...especially if you are using olive oil as the base
