Welcome to Carrots ”˜N’ Cake!
I lovvvve food, but my real passion is fitness and exercise. My favorite ways to stay in shape are CrossFit and running, but I also love yoga, spinning, hiking, and barre classes. My love for all things food and fitness led me to earn a Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certificate in Exercise Nutrition, Level 1 CrossFit trainer certification, and NASM personal trainer certification.
Carrots ‘N’ Cake is where I share my love of food, staying fit, and living a healthy life. While I try to pack the most nutrients possible into each meal, I have a number of favorite foods that are not necessarily “healthy,” but are still delicious and fun to eat. If eaten in moderation, I believe that the “bad” foods can be part of a well-balanced diet… hence, Carrots ‘N’ Cake! I also share lots of workouts and randomness from my life, so there’s always something new on CNC!
This same philosophy and desire to share it with others helped me secure a book deal with Sterling Publishing. In May 2011, my book, Carrots ‘N’ Cake: Healthy Living One Carrot and Cupcake at a Time, was published. It’s based on my blog, so it’s a fun take on leading a healthy lifestyle– eating your carrots and savoring your cupcakes, too! Instead of restrictive dieting, obsessive calorie counting, and constant hunger, I show readers how they can drop the pounds (and keep them off) by adopting eating habits that are healthy, balanced, and above all, livable. My second book, The Part Time Vegetarian (PTV) Smoothies and Juices: Boost Your Immune System and Increase Your Energy With a Flexitarian Diet was released in July 2014.
