Hiyyaa! It’s been a while since you’ve seen a real blog post from me, huh? I love writing and sharing my health coaching wisdom with you, I have just been juuuuuust a bit preoccupied with my newly launched course and its success!! Today, we are going to talk about why you prefer Haagen Dazs, Ben&Jerry (oh, who am I kidding) and why PMS is indeed a justification for your next pint. I’m kidding! Let’s talk about how to manage your cravings without harming your neighbors.
I’m super excited about this book, and I don’t even have a sweet tooth. Need I say, my husband does.
Carolyn is one of my favorite bloggers for a few reasons. Remember her? I’ve just recently shared my impressions of her Easy Keto Dinners book (and I’m still cooking away at those recipes!)
So when I got this baby in the mail, I knew I can spoil my special person AND test her awesome recipes. Often, I don’t feel like making Paleo or Primal versions (too much sugar for my liking), and I don’t want to go for the “real” deal stuff (I don’t like ice cream that much!). I have some issues with erythritol, but once in awhile I make something dessert-y with it, if you’d like to have your cake, and eat it too.
Have you ever struggled to get back to whatever you’ve been focusing on? Whether it’s eating less junk, skipping alcohol, or going to bed at the same time every night? I bet at least once in a while, you might have lost your motivation and wondered how to get it back.
We often talk about things that are ephemeral and intangible when it comes to health and fitness. Motivation. Inspiration. Determination. A desire to change. Fitness.
The invisibility of these guys often makes me wonder: do they exist? Is motivation something we could have a lot of at all times?
Add more ice cream to every meal! Wait. That doesn’t sound right.
Eating more vegetables is one of the most important things you can do for your health regardless of what goals you’re pursuing. Often, we disregard this notion because…well, because processed food gets in our way, it’s easier, it often tastes better and we’re creatures of habit or, simply, many people don’t like vegetables.
Today I have the privilege of reviewing a book by one of my favorite food bloggers – Carolyn Ketchum from Day I Dream About Food. She’s just released her new cookbook called “Easy Keto Dinners (flavorful low-carb meals for any night of the week)”.
I’ll try staying as subjective as I can but I need to add I’ve made quite a few recipes from ADIDAF over the last few years and they stole my heart 🙂
Inflammation is an underlying cause of many chronic and autoimmune diseases. Not all inflammation is bad of course, it’s a natural immune response that can literally save our lives. It’s the chronic inflammation that’s the problem. Get a cut? You want that inflammation to help you heal! It’s the constant low-level inflammatory state that is the problem. Unfortunately, our modern lives help contribute to a chronic inflammatory state. This is why making everyday diet and lifestyle choices that seek to lower inflammation is an important goal of any health plan.
What are the ways to reduce inflammation?

Do I need to track my food? Can I eat more fat? Do you recommend portion control? What to do if I had a few bad days? How do I get a stronger willpower? After years of coaching family, friends, and the clients, these are possibly the questions I face most as a health and wellness coach on a daily…
