Hi, friends! This photo below is definitely the definition of #momlife. Here I am sitting on the couch, trying to relax after a long day when Quinn climbs onto my lap and sticks his head in my shirt. It was a flow-y, criss-cross tank top, so I totally understand its fun potential, but, hey, personal space! 🙂 I didn’t even bat an eyelash, nor did I even realize what was happening until he had already made himself…

I’ve partnered with Applegate Farms to bring you this easy and delicious, make-ahead breakfast recipe. It’s one that you can whip up on your food prep day and enjoy throughout the week. As always, thank you for supporting CNC, and I hope you and your family enjoy this recipe! I’m one of those people who goes to bed thinking about what I want to eat for breakfast the next morning. Anyone else? I swear having…

Hi, friends! As you know, I’m ALL about breakfast. It’s easy my favorite meal of the day. And if it’s on-point, both taste- and nutrition-wise, the rest of my eats will typically follow suit. A healthy breakfast really sets the tone for the day, which is why I often suggest to my nutrition clients that they get it squared away at the start of the week – whether it’s prepped ahead or something that’s literally…

If you follow me on Instagram Stories, you’ve probably seen that I’ve been on quite the cottage cheese kick lately. I love eating it along side a plate of veggie crudités for dipping. It’s such a quick and easy – not to mention nutritious and delicious – snack to quickly throw together. Whatever your mood – morning, noon or night – cottage cheese is an awesome (and protein-packed!) addition to your day, which is why…

Hey, hey! You all know how much I love a good cookie, right? Even when I’m paying attention to my diet, I have to find ways to incorporate some sweet treats throughout the week. Ok, well, it’s pretty much a daily occurance because what’s life without a cookie? I’d rather not know! Since I’ve been seed cycling and eating lots of sunflower seeds in the second half of my cycle, I’m constantly brainstorming new ways…

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I hope you’re planning to celebrate with all things delicious, but if you’re still looking for a last-minute recipe to enjoy, give this Easy Edamame Guacamole Recipe a go! It’s actually an oldie, but goodie recipe that I’ve made again and again over the years, and it’s one that’s always a crowd-pleaser! This Edamame Guacamole is loaded with fresh ingredients and plenty of flavor as well as healthy fats and some protein –…

I can’t stop making these protein balls! They’re so darn delicious and SO EASY to make. They seriously come together in, like, 5 minutes! These protein balls were inspired by my love of chocolate and hitting my macros goals for the day. I’m definitely not a stickler for “the numbers,” but these babies clock in as a well-balanced, macro-friendly treat and, bonus, they’re so easy to make – just whip up a batch when the…

No matter how many times I think I’ve come up with all the protein ball recipes possible, inspiration hits! I just love protein balls because they are so easy to toss together with whatever extra ingredients you have on hand. I especially love that I don’t have to be super precise in measuring because, hey, sometimes eyeballing it makes cooking so much more fun! As you guys might remember, I’m a fan of seed cycling and…

Guys, this Smooth as Honey White Bean Spread is absolutely delicious – the texture is so incredible and is just bursting with flavor. Mixing white beans, almond butter, honey, and cinnamon together might sound a little strange to you, but I promise it’s a winning combination! It reminds me of my favorite flavored nut butter, but with additional nutrients from the beans. The honey sweetens up the spread, so you don’t taste the beans at…

Hi, friends! Just popping in real quick with a new recipe that I whipped up yesterday. I was away for the weekend, so I did the majority of my meal prep yesterday, including making a batch of these breakfast cookies. Recently, you might have noticed that I’m really digging rice cakes with peanut butter, banana, and sometimes ground flax for breakfast. It’s simple, delicious, satisfying, and mostly nutritious. I say “mostly” because rice cakes don’t have…

These quick and easy blender chocolate chip cookies are made with only 7 ingredients. This simple recipe is gluten-free, egg-free, dairy-free… and delicious!  It’s no secret that I enjoy a good cookie (or two) on occasion. But ever since I (mostly) cut eggs from my diet, I try to be mindful of recipes that include them. I’ve enjoyed the positive changes and improvements with regard to my skin since eliminating them, and it’s been fun playing…

This recipe for the Slow Cooker Honey Chipotle Chicken Lettuce Wraps is a favorite in our house. The sweet and savory flavor combination of honey, marinara sauce, and chili powder is pure perfection—and when wrapped in lettuce and paired with fresh cilantro and avocado, it can’t be beat. These lettuce wraps are perfect for a quick lunch, dinner, or snack! And, bonus, the chicken is so simple to make. It’s cooked in a crockpot (or…

Hi, guys! Happy Tuesday to you! So, I have ANOTHER tahini recipe for you. Tahini Tuesday, anyone? 🙂 Clearly, I’m allllll about the tahini lately. But, first, a quick recap of my morning! I’ve been digging this breakfast lately, especially on the days that I work out in the morning. I need a little something in my stomach, but I don’t want to be too full either. Listen to this combo: Half of a mashed…

Ever since I came back from my amazing trip to Israel, I’ve dreamed of all things tahini. Tahini is a staple ingredient in Israeli cuisine and it’s had my wheels turning as to how I can incorporate it into more of my recipes. (Keep a look out for more ideas in the coming weeks!) For years, I only thought of tahini as being an ingredient you added to hummus. While that is it’s most common use…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday! Today is totally getting away from me. It’s been a busy – yet productive – day, so no complaints, but, whoa, the day has really flown by. My morning started bright and early with some work followed (almost immediately) by a glass of iced coffee with chocolate peanut milk and a rice cake with peanut butter and banana slices on top. Quinn slept until almost 6:45 AM (!!), so I (mostly)…
