It’s time for eating better… (and skinny jeans)

Zucchini Fettuccine with Rosemary Butternut Creme Sauce

I just returned from an amazing weekend at the Oregon coast. The weather was 80 degrees and sunny and let’s just say it was the rest and relaxation I really needed after a very busy summer!

I’m so excited to share some fun pictures from the trip and a delicious veggie and egg scramble recipe with you later this week. But before then, I wanted to make sure you used up any last zucchini that may be lying around your kitchen!

And for that, I have just the thing…

Can you believe it’s already time for butternut squash? How crazy is that?! This is one of my favorite recipes and it’s the perfect way to end the summer and welcome the fall.  If you’re ready to embrace the change in seasons be sure to check out this recipe for Zucchini Fettuccine with Rosemary Butternut Creme Sauce. It’s vegetarian, vegan, paleo, dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, and amazing all around.

With fall rolling in it also means it’s time to say goodbye to cute summer dresses and capris and get ready for skinny jean season. And for that, I have just the thing to help…

My goal as a food blogger, holistic health coach, and, well, friend is to help people eat better because I believe that when we eat better, we feel better. And, when we have energy and feel great in our bodies, it enables us to do so many awesome things in this world. But of course, one of the nice perks about eating better and feeling better is that we often look better. So…

If you’re looking to…

  • Get started with eating real, seasonal whole foods or looking to take your meal inspiration to the next level
  • Have food allergies, dietary restrictions, or simply try to avoid gluten, grains, dairy, soy, and sugar
  • And want to be able to button your skinny jeans this season – without going on a diet and while still eating delicious food!

Then be sure to check out my Cookbooks:

Both books are electronic cookbooks, available immediately for download, and viewable on any computer, Kindle, iPad, iPhone, and Android – anywhere in the world!  Get more details here. 

Hoping you eat better, feel great, and look amazing this season!

Coconut Crusted Chicken Strips

Coconut Crusted Chicken Strips

Awhile back a friend introduced me to these amazing chicken strips from the Whole Foods freezer aisle. She even showed me how simple they are to make: you just pull them out of the box, plop them on a sheet pan, and bake! I’ll admit it: I was intrigued. Sure, they were simple… but were they any good?…

Green Tea Soda

One of the hardest habits I had to break a few years back was kicking the diet soda. I’m not going to lie: it wasn’t easy. I missed that bubbly, sweet sensation… well, until I realized I could make my own sodas and spritzers using sparkling water. Lately I’ve been needing a little something extra…
