When I had a taco burger at a restaurant a few weeks ago, I knew I had to recreate it at home for my family. The results were amazing!
This Fall, I went back to school to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. Fitness and nutrition are a passion for me and I find a lot of ways to relate it to everyday life. I’m currently taking an Anatomy class which terrified me because science was never my forte. Luckily, I’m finding it to be […]

This summer got a little rough as far as me eating sugar goes. The early part of the summer we moved which encouraged my stress eating. I tried to keep it “approved” with dark chocolate, fruit and treats made with natural sugars, but still, I overdid it. Then the vacations started: camping, Disneyland, weekends with family, […]

My daughter loves to have eggs for breakfast. The problem is, I don’t have time to make eggs every morning now that we have to leave for school at 7:30 a.m. So how could I give my daughter eggs, but make breakfast the night before? The solution: Egg muffins.
