Ready for a fun healthy eating challenge? Here’s everything you need to know about the 5-day Throw Together Meal Challenge on Instagram! #TTMchallenge! Sure, in a perfect world every meal we’d eat would be a beautifully presented plate of food, but life happens… we’re busy, we’re hungry, and who has time to run to the grocery store for 2 tablespoons of arrowroot or casava flour? In this 5-day challenge, you’ll learn how to make a…

If you’re following the CNC spring nutrition meal plan, you might have noticed that last week’s plan looked a little different. There was only one sample day (instead of 3) with some extra macro-friendly recipes. The reason: Because I stink at following meal plans! I’m just not someone who thrives on a meal plan. I felt so bad that I wasn’t sticking with it and letting down my coach and challenge group, but the more…

Hi, guys! With all of the travel that I’ve done lately (and a couple of trips on the horizon), I wanted to share some of my go-to tips and tricks for tracking macros. Obviously, when you’re on-the-go, your food choices are often a crap-shoot, but you don’t want to make yourself crazy either, so here’s how I balance my day! Pre-plan your day and log it before you eat it The night before, plan out your next…

This post is sponsored by FitFluential on behalf of SUBWAY. All opinions are my own. A question that I receive from both CNC readers and DTFN clients is how to eat healthy on the go. Of course, in a perfect world, we’d all have our meals and snacks prepped and ready to go, but, hey, life happens and sometimes you’re out and about, far from your kitchen, and you’re HUNGRY. I totally get it, and I’ve…

Hi, friends! Happy New Year!!! With the new year kicking off today, I decided to write a special healthy eating edition of What I’m Loving Lately. I actually started my “January 1st” the day after Christmas””mostly to put an end to a week-long sugar and booze bender””so I’ve eaten pretty well and tried some new things recently and wanted to share what I’ve been loving lately. Hopefully, it will motivate you in 2016 to do the same! Enjoy! Hemp seeds…

I’m all about fast and easy dinners nowadays. I mean, it’s a bonus if it’s a crazy-easy dinner that you can make fast! 🙂 I don’t have the time (or energy) to make elaborate recipes anymore, so my favorite meals require minimal prep, not too many ingredients, and speedy cook times. That said, here are 20 of my very favorite, go-recipes that are crazy-easy to make (if I can make them, anyone can!) and they…

Good morning, friends! As you might remember, I am working with Kohls on their Make Your Move campaign, which is all about moving more, stressing less, and eating and sleeping better. For my first post, I shared how I plan to move more in 2015. My second post was about our Happiness Board, which helps me stress less and be more positive in my everyday life. This post is all about my favorite kitchen tools that help…

Canyon Ranch provided me with complimentary accommodations at their resort as well as a spa credit and Discover Your Fitness Age assessment. The opinions expressed are honest and all my own. Guys, oh my goodness, I had such a nice time at Canyon Ranch. I absolutely loved everything about my time there, but, not surprisingly, one of the highlights for me was the FOOD. Food, glorious food. It was so delicious, fresh, and nutritious, and it inspired…

I pretty much ate and drank my face off this weekend at BlogHer Food. I literally ate all day long for four straight days. Of course, I don’t regret a single bite (it’s all part of the experience), but, even still, I’m ready to get back on track with my healthy eating habits. Here’s how I get back on track: Don’t dwell on the past Instead of worry about and dwelling on the eating “mistakes”…

Greetings from Alaska Airlines! Hooray for in-flight internet! My flight departed at 8:00 AM, so it was an early morning for me, especially since I still had some packing to finish. (Why do I always wait until the last-minute to finish packing? I know it’s going to stress me out. Blah. I never learn.) Once I was all packed up and ready to go, Mal and Murphy drove me to the commuter rail. I don’t…
