Those who know me well know that I’ve followed a lot of weird diets over the years. I’ve tried going vegan, I was vegetarian for a year, I’ve flirted with the ketogenic (aka keto) lifestyle, and I even tried Atkins when I initially lost 40 pounds at the age of 18. Now that I’m in my late
I haven’t posted any health or nutrition-related content in a while, but all of that’s about to change. You may know that I recently got back from a two-month trek across South America, so I’ve primarily been blogging about my travel experiences. If you love reading about my adventures, don’t worry — there are still
It’s National Coffee Day! So basically, my Christmas. I woke up this morning totally craving a PSL – it’s been on my mind ever since I stopped in at Starbucks yesterday. I try not to get the PSL from Starbucks very often, as it contains a whopping 50g of sugar (uh, yep, more than a soda!).
Listen, you guys – I love carbs. When it comes to brown rice, sweet potatoes, succulent fruits and red wine, I’m always game (as long as I’m practicing my three rules of moderation, of course). But the truth is, when I look around me and observe the people in my life who don’t feel well

I’m officially on week two of my 28-day detox, and things are going pretty well. I’m really enjoying the way I’m eating right now. I’ll post about this in more detail later, but it’s essentially a clean eating plan. One of the food groups I’m not eating is dairy. Here in Wisconsin, the weather is finally
It’s 10 a.m. at the time that I’m writing this post, and I feel great! That’s really saying something, because most of yesterday was a clouded blur. As you already know if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, I’ve embarked on a 28-day detox program (one that I’m creating myself – I’ll be sharing it
I spent the entirety of 2013 as a vegetarian. At the time, I chose to go veg for ethical reasons. I’d been considering making the change for a few years at that point, and was very immersed in the environmental and social topics surrounding the issue. I wasn’t sure if I’d remain vegetarian for life
I didn’t always eat the way I do now. When I was 17, you’d be more likely to catch me eating McDonald’s than whole foods. I’ve always loved to eat (my grandmother will tell you I was the only grandchild that cleared her plate at every meal) and as a teenager, I ate everything in sight. I’m
I’m giving up MyFitnessPal. Here’s why.
