Fat-Burning 4th of July Workout

It takes effort and dedication to make time for a workout, especially on a holiday. That's why it's nice to have a few go-to workouts that you can do anywhere (with or without weights). 

Check out my July  4th–inspired fat-burning workout below. There are 13 movements (for the 13 colonies) with sets of 50 (for the 50 states). It’s also a perfect workout when you’re traveling, and ideal for those days when you need to get movement in, but just can’t make it to the club.

5-Minute Protein Pancakes

Offering new solutions for breakfast is one of the most common strategies that our nutrition coaches implement with clients. For many of us, our go-tos (often marketed as breakfast foods) are too high in carbohydrates.

Craving sweets at night? Here's What To Eat.

One of the most frequent questions my clients ask me is what they should eat at night when they’re craving something sweet. There’s just something about that time of day. For me, it’s when I finally slow down and relax. My family’s typical day is go-go-go from the moment we wake up in the morning, getting lunches packed and the entire family ready and dropped off in time for school and work. By the time we eat dinner and get in a little more play, we have a small chunk of time left to relax. I know for many, this is that time of day when the sweet tooth can really kick in.

Craving Carbs? Here's Why And What To Eat Instead.

How a Dietitian Organizes Her Fridge

Here’s the thing — we all have great intentions. But when it comes to eating healthy and filling our refrigerators with the best foods, I’ve seen my clients make some common mistakes over the years.

Most often, we use those good intentions and motivations to stock the fridge full of all sorts of healthy foods and more than enough fruits and vegetables. But then it all goes bad before we even get to use it.

Questioning if you have food sensitivities? 

If, while I was getting my dietetics degree, you would have told me that I’d be coaching people about food sensitivities, I honestly would have thought you were joking.

When I was in college (and during my medical internship), gluten-free was a thing we only talked about when someone had diagnosed celiac disease. Peanut allergies were definitely on the rise (as were peanut and nut-free schools), and I was under the impression that every American should be consume three servings of milk (cow dairy) per day.
