Hey there! My hope is you've already taken my free 2-minute eating personality quiz, but in case you missed it you can still take it HERE!
I now want to share with you a few tips you can practice if you are the unconscious eater, the careful clean eater, or the professional dieter.
For the UNCONSCIOUS EATER:
Practice menu planning weekly to insure you are purchasing groceries to make actual meals. This will also help with eating out less and eating more balanced.
Read chapters 7, 11, and 12 in the book Intuitive Eating. These chapters focus specifically on honoring your hunger and fullness cues and coping with your emotions with kindness.
Practice mindfulness when eating at least once a day for a few minutes. It doesn't have to be all or nothing! Create a comfortable eating environment and turn off distractions.
For the CAREFUL CLEAN EATER:
Challenge yourself to tuning in to what you actually want rather than what you feel you "should" eat....
Body image and our brains are complex.
In today's vlog, I explain why you may feel ok or even positive about your body at times and why you may feel horrible about your body at other times. I also give you some insight into what you can do on those hard days.
Enjoy! Thanks for being here!

Hey, there! You may have seen this REEL of mine from last week busting the myth that drinking lemon water is some magic weight loss potion, and it gave me the idea to share with you a few more common nutrition myths I hear alllll the time.
So let's get to it!
MYTH #1: There are "good carbs" and "bad carbs"
False!!! I always say "a carb is a carb is a carb", "a fat is a fat is a fat", and "a protein is a protein is a protein". No matter what kind of carbohydrate you consume, it is all going to ultimately break down to glucose in the body so your body and brain can use it for energy. Getting variety, however, is important because all foods contain various nutrients that contribute to your health. I will also add that the ONLY difference between whole grain bread is the fiber. If you are making about 50% of your grains whole and eating 3-5 servings of fruit and veggies a day, youre going to be doing great with your fiber intake. There is no need to...
Hey there! You may or may not have caught this popular post of my on INSTAGRAM last week, but in case you missed it I wanted to share it again and give you even more details to support raising healthy children with healthy relationships with food and their bodies.
Here's the honest truth - YOU will be the very best model of having a healthy relatinship with food and body for your kids. We HAVE to heal ourselves in order for our children to not suffer as we have.

In case you missed it, this was my top Instagram post last week. In today's video, I go into a little more depth as to why carbohydrates are so important for our brains and bodies.
One mistake I made in this video that I wanted to clarify is that our brains need a minimum of 120 grams of carbs per day to function properly. That is the equivalent of FOUR cups of pasta or FOUR cups of rice (NOT EIGHT CUPS). So sorry for that mistake. I think I was just on a roll with the number eight! Haha! 8 slices of bread is, however, correct. This just goes to show that low carb diets are NOT what is best for our brains in particular, and your mood will definitely be impacted when not consuming enough.
Also, these super cute mugs are not available for purchase unless you are a business wanting to purchase them to carry in your own shop, BUT I managed to pull some strings and I will be hosting a giveaway soon so you can win one! More details are in the video! Enjoy!
P.S. If you missed this...
In case you missed it, this was my top Instagram post last week. In today's video, I go into a little more depth as to why cleanses and diets are crap...and why you don't need to bother wasting your money on them! Enjoy!
Until next week,
