The countdown is on for the start of 2019. I'm sure you're thinking about resolutions.

If your resolution is to lose weight or to simply get healthier, I'm here to arm you with success so you can stick to your goals for the long run and see the results you want all year long. Here's to a long, happy, and healthy life.

Confused about vitamins? You're not alone! The regulations on dietary supplements aren't as strict as they are for medications, so it can be challenging to be sure you're buying high-quality products that work. As a dietitian, I like to focus on food first. With the right balance of nutrients on your plate, pills and powders are sometimes completely unnecessary! But other times, they really are needed. Learn which supplements to pick (and which to skip!) if you want to feel your best.
Gearing up for another busy summer? When my schedule is packed, I like to meal prep energy bites or buy healthy, grab-and-go snacks from the supermarket. My plan is to always be prepared when hunger strikes. Whether you're running errands or catching a flight, there's no reason to choose a less-than-nutritious, last-minute snack. I hope you put these recommendations for fueling up while you're away from home to good use!
Most people assume healthy eating requires drastic changes from day one. My wellness strategy is a little bit different. I like to recommend small changes, such as adding seasonal veggies to dinner or switching up a mid-afternoon snack. Swaps like these don't take a lot of time or effort, but they add up to big changes over time! Looking for more easy ways to live better today?
I don't know about you, but I always feel squeezed for time. Between work, workouts, physical therapy sessions (I'm getting over a leg injury), and time with my boyfriend and friends, I'm always running from one thing to the next. But that doesn't mean a healthy meal rotation has to be sacrificed. Eating well doesn't have to be expensive or time consuming. I've got a few veggie- and protein-packed dishes I like to cook when I'm busy. These meals prove you can spend less time in the kitchen.
Want to eat healthier without spending hours on meal prep? I use a few different kitchen gadgets that make it easy (and fun!) to cook nutritious food at home.
