I was introduced to chia seed pudding a few years ago and instantly fell in love. A healthy alternative to regular pudding? Yes, please! I love “healthifying” my favorite foods that aren’t so healthy for you so this was right up my alley. I tried a few chia seed pudding recipes and started to develop my own. Most of the recipes I found didn’t have protein added to them so I decided to boost mine with protein. Chia seed protein pudding packs a healthy punch. It’s loaded with healthy nutrients which makes it a great option for either breakfast or a healthy dessert.Read More
Do you love grocery shopping? If you’re like me, grocery shopping can be a task if you’re not prepared. I’m not the best grocery shopper and I’m fine admitting that. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve walked into the grocery store without a plan and walked out with so many items that I didn’t need. And if you’re trying to eat healthy, walking out with items that you don’t need or want can be detrimental to your nutrition plan.Read More
Being prepared is half the battle and 90% of the key to success. Wether you’re trying to improve your health, your performance in a particular sport or lose weight, meal prep can make your life so much easier.

How many of you food prep weekly? If you’re like me, a few hours a week is what it takes to get prepared for the week ahead. I generally do a Sunday food prep for two – three days worth of meals and then I’ll do a midweek food prep for the rest of the week. This helps me organize, maximizes my time and allows me to change my mind in terms of what I want to eat for the next few days. I’ve found in the past that if I food prep on Sunday for an entire week, I end up wasting food. By Tuesday, I don’t want to eat what I had planned for the rest of the week. So I keep it simple and do what works for me. While, I truly don’t love to food prep (yes, I’m admitting it), it is a MUST or my week can take a wrong turn in a hurry. I’ve got to be prepared and have food ready to go or “take out” screams my name.
To make life a little easier, I have figured out my “go to” food prep items. I now know which containers I like best and how I like to store my prepared eats.Read More
