Maca Plantain Pancakes

It’s not often that I find a meal I want to eat everyday for the rest of my life. But these pancakes are seriously in the running. The best part is that they are totally on the menu for February’s Clean Slate! Every year I set aside a month to do my Clean Slate protocol. It’s a chance…

Pregnancy Week 21: Goals

As I sit here with my growing baby belly competing with my leggings for space, I’m caught reflecting on the incredible mental shift that has occurred with this pregnancy. I remember that five months ago, having a belly hanging over my leggings would have sent me into a very different mental space. Five months ago, while I had…

Pregnancy Week 20: Halfway!

I officially just finished half of my pregnancy! So I figured I would take this post to do some rapid fire questions about what’s happening in this second trimester, how the baby is doing, and what my life typically looks like these days. Yay! Lets’ begin. Baby. How’s he doing? We had our anatomy ultrasound at 19…

Pregnancy Week 16: Fitness

It’s that special time of week again. Pregnancy Talk Time. I just entered my 16th week and am feeling relatively good. Not amazing, not horrible. But a solid GOOD. Before pregnancy I was definitely an advocate for sleep. I struggled with insomnia for a good two years and have an in-depth knowledge of how destructive…

Cinnamon Mocha Smoothie

My morning ritual has been recently been shaken up by a newfound gym commitment and a budding passion for dog walks on the trails instead of the concrete jungle of mid-city. The husband and I are the newest members of a local Crossfit. It’s been über fun lifting heavy and joining in the competitive spirt…

The Weight Series – Healthy Mind, Healthy Body

Finally! The third installment of The Weight Series is here! I figured it was fitting to post this today because this week is National Eating Disorder Week. What an incredible struggle this is for so many people out there. Let’s do all we can to bring awareness to these debilitating conditions. Like me, you don’t have…

What I Ate Wednesday

I thought I’d revive the ol’ “what I ate” post today. Whenever I talk to anyone about healthy eating, nutrition, nourishment, ancestral health, etc, I inevitably get the question, “So what do you eat?” Here’s an answer. I usually eat different stuff everyday. I’m not a food routine kind of person. I eat at different hours…

Links I Love

Every once in a while I like to share some stories, ideas, and products that I’ve come across recently. Here’s what I’m liking lately… INSPIRATION We Got This. This cause is near and dear to my heart. Alex, a former client of mine, was unexpectedly diagnosed with lung cancer last year. He’s an amazing, positive, and…

Butternut Sage Frittata

Yesterday’s workout was a KILLER. 4 min Rounds with 1 min rest in between rounds. Do all three rounds twice through. Round 1 150 m row, 10 dumbbell thrusters Round 2 100 m sprint, 10 push-ups Round 3 30 dubble unders (90 single jump rope passes), 10 kettlebell front rack lunges (5 each leg), 5…

Asian Chop Salad

I really don’t like bulgarian split squats. Not to brag or anything… but I have some pretty impressive lower body strength. There’s nothing like a nice set of bulgarian’s to make me feel like a complete weakling. My poor booty… my poor quads… and by “poor” I obviously mean “lucky” (insert gratitude practice here) because…
