I’ve received a TON of questions about how I make my Kale Apple Salad, so I figured it was about damn time I share it on my blog! The recipe is SUPER simple, and contrary to what you might think, Kale with the dressing left on it actually does last pretty well in the fridge! Putting the dressing on hours in advance is what allows the kale to be less bitter and softer, without being soggy, and is an easier texture for most to handle than regular raw kale. I usually make a…

So what is it? Core de Force is an MMA inspired kick-boxing program created by Beachbody. This is actually my second time doing this program, with the last time being over a year ago (and with half-ass effort on my part if i’m totally honest). This time I decided to go all in! It’s a 30 day program in which you can follow the traditional workout calendar schedule or the “Deluxe Calendar”, with the main difference between the two being that some of the deluxe workouts require an agility ladder. I went ahead and went…

Let’s make one thing clear: the journey to self-love isn’t some fairy dust B.S. It takes serious inner WORK…

When you’re trying to be your own boss, an entrepreneur with a full time 9-5 in addition to your side hustle, a good wife and friend, AND stay on track in your fitness journey and complete the 1,093 other things that need…

K, did I just blow your MIND?! Am I the only one who, given the choice, would lick the cake batter out of the bowl every day of my life as a main course if I could? Besides the fact that that’s basically asking for diabetes, I can’t do that because massive sugar overloads cause me to fall asleep (almost instantly – it’s like my super power). BUT WAIT – I stumbled across the best thing since sliced bread – you can freakin’ MAKE healthy cake batter dip that you can literally eat by the…

  Wait. What?! That’s right – guilt free (for the most part) cookie dough! I found this recipe online but made a few tweeks to reduce the sugar in it! You can pair this with graham crackers to make a dip, or do what I do and just eat it straight! Seriously SO good! Please note: there are slight variations you can use for the sugar which are noted below 🙂   Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups chickpeas or white beans (1 can, drained and rinsed very well) 1/8 tsp plus 1/16 tsp salt just over…
