What I think about a diet doesn’t matter.

Sep 02, 2018

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know I’ve been LOVING Instagram’s new questions feature where you can ask me questions in my stories and I can answer them there!


One of the things I get asked about most frequently is my opinion on certain diets/eating lifestyles, like intermittent fasting, carb cycling, keto, etc. And while I love sharing my thoughts (and will continue to do so!), I had to come to you with some real talk today.


Here’s the...

What does healthy mean?

Aug 26, 2018

Which of these evenings can be classified has “healthy”?


Evening A: You’re eating a kale salad after having spent an hour getting in a killer workout at the gym.


Evening B: You’re eating some cereal on the couch and binging 5 episodes of Shark Tank.


The answer is… BOTH!


There is no ONE way to achieve healthy, because “healthy” means doing what works for YOU. It means implementing habits that are sustainable, that...

How much time do you spend on YOU?

Aug 19, 2018

How many times do you say you’re “too busy” to do something? Once a week? Once a day?


We live in a world where everyone is constantly telling everyone else how busy they are. Just think how many times you use that word in a day!


I totally get it  — I get caught in the busy trap, too. But it took a shift to actually realize it and do something about it.


For me, it looked something like this:


I had a mile long list of things I...

This is scary…

Aug 05, 2018

You know what’s scary? And difficult?




But you know what’s even scarier and more difficult?


Staying exactly where you are right now and not growing, changing, and taking chances.


Imagine never doing the things you want to do, or never becoming the person you’re meant to be, because you’re so dang comfortable with where you are. Scary, right?!


I know how scary change can be. I’ve lived it! When I started Your Dinner is...

Need some workout inspo?

Jul 29, 2018

Oh man… you know that feeling after a GREAT workout? I’m talking about those endorphins! They make you all happy and giddy and “I can do anything”-y.


I LOVE that feeling.


Now, there’s no “right” way to be active in my opinion, because you have to do what works for YOU. Living a healthy and sustainable lifestyle (which includes exercise!) is all about defining health in your own terms and making sure you’re doing...

Real Talk: mirror pictures and being normal

Apr 22, 2018

A few weeks ago, I posted the picture on Instagram...

The response was so outstanding that I had to share it with you guys here.


These pictures were taken two seconds apart. On the left, I’m sucking in, not breathing, flexing, and had eaten many meals (noms). On the right, I’m being normal… and had still eaten many meals.


FRIENDS… why are you comparing yourself to people flexing on social media acting like they magically shit out any food they consume...
