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.
I can't always get behind celebrity nutrition advice, but Oprah is one star whose eating habits I can support. She eats delicious, produce-packed meals and isn't afraid of the occasional indulgence. (Hello, wine and dessert!) Want to learn how you can achieve this balance, too?
Trying to lose weight in 2018? Trust me—another starvation diet is not the answer. I like to prepare high-protein meals and snacks that help me feel energized and satisfied all day long. Ready to get healthy without going hungry?
Protein gives you energy, keeps your muscles strong, and helps you feel full. These are the reasons I include it at every meal and snack. Are you getting enough protein? Luckily, you can find protein in a variety of foods—even if you're not a meat eater! Wondering what I add to my plate when I need a little boost?
Wondering how to add more protein into your diet? Despite the fancy labels, protein powders aren't any healthier than protein-rich, whole foods like edamame, nut butter, and beans. I usually get more than enough protein from natural foods—but when I really want to amp things up, I add just egg white protein powder to smoothies and oatmeal.
