How Working Out Changed My Life

Click here for my favorite workout to start off with when I’ve been slacking in the gym. For me, working out has never solely been about my appearance. Although that is a big part of it for me – I love looking strong and toned – I mainly work out for the mental strength, and […]

My Guide to Grocery Shopping

Grocery shopping seems to be a pretty strenuous activity for most. You forget your shopping list at home, you end up running back and forth from one aisle to the next, and then you get home and realize you forgot the ingredients for dinner and got a whole bunch of junk you didn’t actually need.

Meal Prep

How I Make Meal Prep Easier

MEAL PREP 101 I love meal prep. I don’t always do it for myself, but for my clients over at Your In-Home Chef. Right now, I’m a one woman team. As you can imagine, making 65 meals in one day can be absolute insanity. But if I’m capable of doing all of that on my own – […]

We don’t have much time, but we do have time to make this delicious roasted romanesco, winter squash, and bacon Thanksgiving side dish.

I love chicken salad. I really like homemade versions though, because I feel like the store-bought brands never have enough flavor. They’re kind of sticky, full of too much of that nasty sweet Miracle Whip, and not enough of anything else! This recipe has a ton of flavor, and even a spicy kick from some […]

Cycle with the seasons

Cycling with the Seasons | VIDEO

I’m from Los Angeles California. And now I live in New England. Yes, the change has been tough. Living in LA, for the most part, means the same weather, the same sunshine, and not really knowing whether it’s October or March – at least in terms of the weather. Living in New England is a […]

MONQ Aromatherapy

MONQ – Give the Gift of Aromatherapy

Christmas is here!  Christmas is here! Chriiiiistmas is here! Give MONQ as a stocking stuffer this year. Although I’m not a huge fan of Christmas because it promotes consumerisn and I’m all about giving experiences rather than materialistic things – I do want to promote MONQ   because I honestly believe giving one of these as […]

Crispy Cauliflower Tacos

Vegan Crispy Cauliflower Tacos

Crispy chicken is GOOD. Don’t get me wrong. Bread and fry anything and I’m totally on board. But as you know working out and eating healthy helps me improve my mental, physical, and emotional health – so I can only eat those kinds of things sometimes. But these cauliflower tacos are GOOD – so I don’t even […]
